  • Sweet Little Cabin Indeed!

    "Perfect cabin for a romantic getaway. The cabin is very well constructed with beautiful windows, sun roof, and deck. It was spotless, charming, and very accommodating. There are other houses nearby but we felt secluded enough. Hiking trails are only three miles down the road! Many of the stores in the "1 block" town of Phoenicia were closed, but I imagine that it is a bit more lively during the summer months."

  • Just. Perfect.

    "Our family vacation (with two parents, one 8 year old boy, one dog) was such a raving success that the biggest downside was witnessing our usually stalwart son's tears at the very end of our stay. In a word, the place is peace. There's so MUCH property (hard to even compute for any fellow New Yorkers, but let me try with "there are avenues and avenues of property") a dog can safely run and run all day without you worrying about the street. Our son swam, canoed in the world's safest pond, spotted fish, a (barn?) owl, deer, and many a bold Bluejay. We slept like rocks. The TV was exactly what parents want from a family vacation—a fine collection of family DVDs (we all loved "School of Rock") but nothing so jaw-dropping it's luring your children away from nature. There's two bedrooms upstairs, but it would be easy to toss some kiddos in the spacious downstairs living rooms (there's 2) and gift the upstairs to adults only. The pool is perfection, next to what looks like the remains of a 1800s-era (?) stone basement. It's just beyond idyllic. You'll drive away kicking yourself for not exploring the apple orchard in more detail—that's the kind of post-vacation problem you'll have. One important note on the kitchen, as I'd seen a previous reviewer make somewhat negative comments—the kitchen (and more importantly the BBQ) are great. Is there a Viking stove? No. Would you WANT a Viking stove in a summer house? Hope not! Inside there's a perfectly functioning kitchen and we used it during the one cold evening to make a delicious dinner. I was delighted to poke around the cabinets and find an immersion blender, a Cuisinart, good knives, and even a salad spinner. However the real thrill is in cooking outside. Clearly the owner loves barbecue, because the grill is fantastic, complete with multiple chimneys and a smoker. All forms of grill equipment are there, from skewers to tongs, and your best meals will be out on the deck, overlooking over the water. Funniest moment: our 1 year old labrador mix encountering her very first deer Favorite moment: spending every evening from 5-8 out on the dock as a family, watching the nature without our son ever once asking if he could "go turn on the TV""

  • Great Birthday Weekend

    "I had never booked a rental online and choose to go upstate to celebrate my birthday with a few friends. We had the absolute best time at the Villa. The kitchen is top of the line, with any dish, utensil you could ever need. We loved making fires each night and the outdoor hotub was such a treat! Truly, this house was exactly as the pictures look, but even more cozy. We already are plotting our return to enjoy the pool this Summer!"
