"I have to agree with the previous reviews - the place is spectacular - better than the pictures. Four friends get together every year and we have rented houses all over - and all agree, this is the best yet - probably never to be surpassed. The home is so well stocked - you think of it - it's there. All furnishings are beautiful but relaxing - nothing felt like you couldn't use it. Elizabeth is a wonderful host, greeting us to show us around her beautiful home and always available if the need arises. The pool is a huge bonus - after a day of sightseeing to come back and relax and watch the river and sunsets. The location is convenient to Hyde Park for the Culinary Institute - recommend taking the tour, and the Vanderbilt and Roosevelt Mansions - and to Rhinebeck with all it's great restaurants. I'm looking forward to getting back to the Hudson River Valley."

"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."

"We rafted in the rivers, swam in local lakes and walked in the Catskills and returned for BBQs in the evening. There were deer eating the grass round the property and we saw a bear twice within 5 minutes drive of the house. The house is a large place which accommodated two families of four with ease. The large washing machine and dryer combination was useful and the kitchen facilities were excellent. The description was accurate, the property was clean and well maintained."

"Barn on The Pond is the perfect weekend escape, vacation destination for relaxation, and beautiful venue for a variety of events.
We were lucky enough to stay for a beautiful week in October at the peak of the leaves changing in beautiful weather. The minute we stepped into the home, we were immediately in vacation mode-- it's hard not to be with its serene property, beautiful high open ceilings and a welcoming decor. The kitchen was made for entertaining, whether that's hosting a holiday for family, pepping for an event, or simply cooking dinner for 2 or 12. The bedrooms are all warm and inviting and to sit by the fire-- either inside in the living room listening to records or outside upstairs, cozied up looking out into the mountains with a drink-- is heaven.
There's a beautiful fire pit that we sat with friends around with a beer to catch up and roast some s'mores and the airbed (basically an XL hammock) is the ideal way to lose track of time staring at the sky.
To look out of our windows or sit on the upper back porch with coffee looking out at the pond and the background of trees and mountains was perfect.
Every amenity was thoughtfully in place. Tripp and his team have thought of everything and go out of their way to make sure your trip is comfortable, enjoyable and memorable.
We were a group of 11 + a our dog and had the best time, even hosting our annual pumpkin beer tasting. There's no lesser accommodations though, even the airstream (about 100 feet from the house) was roomy, funky and fun to stay in.
This is a wonderful hidden gem and we look forward to coming back in the future."
