  • Wonderful long weekend getaway

    "My wife, myself, our 8-year-old daughter and another couple stayed at the farmhouse for a long weekend in early November. We had a great time and felt right at home in the cottage, on the grounds and throughout the surrounding area. We had some cold weather the first night and the hillsides were dusted with snow, which gave everything an early-winter feel. We cranked up the wood-fired cookstove in the kitchen and it filled the house with that warmth that only cast iron can provide (there's also a regular furnace and thermostats to heat the place). The house was clean, neat and comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed with cookware, utensils, dishes, etc. On the first morning, our host gave our little girl a quick tour of the henhouse on the working farm, which she thoroughly enjoyed. After breakfast that included some of the farm-fresh eggs, we took a long walk on the rail trial right out back. It passes through quiet old farm country bounded by the wooded hillsides of the northern Catskills. We spent many hours in Hobart's bookstores right up the road, there are seven of them by my count and the town is a mecca for anyone who loves reading. We toured some of the country roads and stopped in to some antique shops, farmstands and sampled some other local spots. We hope to return in the spring with our bikes to ride a longer section of the rail trail. Also, I'd like to bring my flyrod to fish the West Branch of the Delaware, a stone's throw from the farm. In all we had a great time and I would highly recommend the farmhouse to anyone seeking a quiet getaway. -rjj"

  • A nice escape from the city

    "My wife, 2 year old son and I stayed at Tusten Farms Manor House for a week in June and really enjoyed ourselves. We were looking to get out of the city and just spend some quality time together (most of our trips seem to be with friends or extensive family). The house is at the end of private road with only two other homes and is surrounded by trees. You can't see the neighbors and it certainly makes you feel like you have your own bit of peace and quiet. The tennis court and pool are situated a little bit away from the house and are themselves surrounded by trees which makes for a great setting as you feel like you're swimming or playing in the middle of a forest and not in a backyard. We used the pool every day. The home is well kept and the owner responsive in terms of answering questions, returning the security deposit, etc. The drive from/to Manhattan was about 2 hours but on the way we took our time and stopped at Whole Foods and a few other places to pick up items for the week. If you're looking for fresh air, quiet, and a nice home with pool to enjoy both (i.e. a break from the city) then Tusten Farms Manor House is likely for you. It was one of our more relaxing, enjoyable trips."

  • A great place to stay!

    "This is the second time I've rented a house from Karen and Aleks and I can't speak highly enough of them and their properties - although this house might be my favorite of the bunch. I spent the week here with a rather large group, but there was still loads of space for everyone and a huge parking lot for all of our cars as well. I would rent this house again in a heartbeat."

  • Rejuvenating

    "Our stay at the house is extremely rejuvenating. The house is very cozy and warm, with a wonderful library and tons of natural light floating into the main living room. I would diffidently recommend it to anyone who is looking for some quality quiet getaway. Don't forget to look up the sky full of stars at night. It is breath taking beautiful! It is always nice to have some quiet time away from the modern civilization :)"
