Recent Catskills property reviews
"The house and location were exceptional. The entire property was very clean and well maintained. The house overlooked a very nice lake, which is excellent for fishing, boating and swiming. It is a great vacation spot for any family."Guest: Chris Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 2, 2014View listing
"Each year I chose a location where close friends and I spend our New Year's vacation. This was our fifth year (I believe). We are mostly New York City folk so we try to keep the destination relatively accessible for the majority of the group, while also being far enough away so that we can leave our day to day stresses behind. This lovely house definitely met those criteria. Here, one can escape the tumult of the city's traffic, trucks, and trains. On a clear night, you can spot an infinite number of stars in the sky, since there are no tall buildings blocking the horizon, nor overpowering streetlights dimming them to the naked eye. The rooms are cozy and decorated by the owning family. The house is not an uninspiring hotel room; a family had thrived under this roof and they left their markings and character throughout the household. It is easy to sit back and take a breather in this home. I quickly forgot about the stresses and worries which I happily left at home. I can see that the same is true for the friends that I had spent this holiday with. Further, this home is a great destination for those who love the great outdoors. Hunter Mountain is less than a half hour away, and Windham is just a little further. There are hiking trails only ten minutes away, and there are countless number of places to hike within the region. For those who love mountains, or winter sports this destination if fantastic. The owners were always gracious and responsive. Definitely one of the best experiences I have had with homeowners who use homeaway.com"Guest: Greg S. Date of Stay: December 2012 Review Submitted: January 16, 2013View listing
"We have been to Cherry Ridge with family and friends several times. It is perfect. The farmhouse is simple but has everything we need, and the setting among the rolling hills of Delaware County is amazing. It is one of the most beautiful places we have been. Our kids spend a lot of time playing in the horse barn and we love walking up the paths behind the house -- the views of the valley from up there are stunning. And now there is a swim pond halfway up! There is also a nice walk into town for breakfast or basic supplies. The beautiful porch is a great place for morning coffee. We like to eat meals out at the picnic table, and have a bonfire at night. The owners are lovely to deal with. We are always sad to leave."Guest: sarah b.

"We LOVE this house! Just like the last time my husband and I rented it, the place was immaculate, charming and so comfortable. This time, my sister and I enjoyed relaxing in the yard and its lovely garden. It's obvious that the owner takes great pride in the property with its tasteful decor. I highly recommend this home when you're looking for someplace special."Guest: Lynn Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 25, 2014View listing
