  • The best getaway ever!

    "The best getaway location I've ever been. We went there for my brother's birthday celebration and everybody had an amazing time. The house is breathtaking, entire property is absolutely fascinating. Hose has everything you may need to have a great time away from the city. The amount of sunlight that comes in through huge floor-to-sealing windows. We will definitely go back and I won't hesitate to recommend it to everybody."

  • 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."

  • Simply terrific!

    "If you're looking for an outdoorsy summer vacation with all --really more-- of the comforts of home, this is the place. Situated on a ridge in the Catskills, this tasteful, well-kept and maintained house has a great view, lots of peace and quiet, a large lawn to goof around on, a swimmable pond with an adjacent fire pit, and hot tub -- perfect for soothing tired legs after hiking for the day. Also, very pet-friendly. The owner is thoughtful and easy to deal with. The only problem is when it's time to leave, you'll wish you could stay longer. Highly recommended."

  • Great Family Week on the Lake

    "Our family had a great time while we were at the house. We really loved the location and the easy access to the lake. I was quite surprised to see how many people use the private Washington Beach! We had great weather, a little bit of rain that didn’t last very long and one day was very hot and humid, but on the average it was perfect. We used the canoe and row boat often and we also cleaned out the fire pit and used that a few nights. It was a lot of fun for everyone. While there, we saw a bald eagle, lots of deer, wild turkey and even had the chance to see a bear! It was frolicking in the open land on the right side of the Retreat across the lake. We all had a wonderful time and would love to enjoy the house and the lake again some time in the future."
