"We had a wonderful couple days with extended family in George and Katy's lovely house. The surrounding mountains were covered in a lovely mist in the mornings as we enjoyed coffee on the deck of the guest house. All ages had a good time here, including teens playing badminton and canoeing around in the small pond, some seniors who were having some mobility problems, and all in-between who congregated in the large living room (10 easily gathering in a conversation circle) for evenings catching up with relatives. Our family of 4 slept in their unique guest house (a cabin with large screened porch surrounding a "vintage" travel trailer). The beds in the trailer were very comfortable and with all the windows it was just like sleeping out, minus mosquitoes!
George was very helpful and available in case we had any questions or problems. There was plenty to do in the area - hikes, villages, coffee shops, museums, etc.
My only complaint is that the morning sun shone on the pond but not the house, and then the hot afternoon sun shone on the porch! (I'm sure this is a huge plus in the winter, but not in the summer!)
So, George and Katy, if you could only turn your house 180 degrees it would have been perfect! (Maybe on a lazy susan?)
We will definitely be back and I would recommend this house to anyone, larger groups especially."

"We rented this home with one other family for a local event that was taking place in the area in June. The home is spotless and the location is amazing. Only steps away from the ski slopes which during June was perfect for hiking up the mountain. The owners were extremely accommodating. Perfect rental for 2 families as there are plenty of beds to sleep many people. I would highly recommend this rental for all 4 seasons. Truly a great place for a quite getaway in the Mountains not far from NYC."

Wonderful Home and Lake-Perfect for Good Quality Family Time!
"We loved our stay at Shehawken Lake. We were looking for a quiet vacation to spend some quality time as a family and it was perfect. The house sits on a beautiful lake with great swimming, boating and fishing. it was small enough that our kids could go out in the kayaks and row boats by themselves (ages 9 and 10--with life preservers),which they loved. We could always see them. Fishing was fantastic--my son fished from 8am to 8pm, catching lots of fish. The house was really cool--extremely well designed. It looks small on the outside but felt very roomy inside--we didn't even use the upstairs! It has everything you'd need--kitchen well stocked, lots of kids movies, bright, clean bedrooms, nice big shower, etc. There isn't a lot to do in the surrounding area--no real places to go out to eat, etc so bring food and plan to grill or cook! The owner is very helpful and accommodating. The neighbors were super nice too. We're already talking about going back and I have recommended it to friends. Great place to relax, read, fish, swim, etc. My kids rated it an 11 out of 10 and their best vacation!"

"Perfect get away in the mountains in a perfect location. Very clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable. Great location for fishing, hiking, and scenery is spectacular. We had campfires each night and enjoyed cooking on the grill in the fresh mountain air. Enjoyed the Phoenicia Diner and Brio's restaurant. Went fishing in the Esopus Creek as well! David and June were available for any needs or questions, and left materials in the home on the area, menus, maps, etc. We definitely hope to return!"
