"First of all, Carolyn was a responsive owner before and during the stay. She was clearly eager to make her home feel like our home (for all too short a time!).
We had two kids, ages 5 & 7, and cousins aged 10 and 12, plus my mom. Stella Farm has raised the bar for vacation homes in our family -- my kids now expect a huge, bucolic yard, a clean, luxurious pool, and a trampoline!
For the adult/parents, too, this house was a dream. The hammock, the garden, the lawn, the pool, the kitchen, the beds -- the linens were as nice as ones at home! -- the porch (omg the porch!). The house was my vision of a country home.
I took a class at Bard College, and my drive was glorious each morning -- with cornfields and farms all around. The town where the house is located is quiet and rural, away from the tourist traffic, but Rhinebeck is a short drive where you'll find tons to do. We explored a number of little towns easily, and mucked about in the numerous swimming holes. There was fruit picking galore and plenty of places to buy artisan foods.
This place is heaven on Earth. Rent it today!"

"I have actually stayed at this property twice , Both times my Family rented the entire place for Christmas (2012 & 2013, calendar would not allow those options).
Our host Michel (hope I spelled that correctly) was excellent, there when you need him & privacy when you don't.
The property is beautifully restored with large working fireplaces , antiques, and beautiful features throughout. Both times we had it decorated for the holiday, it was excellently done & made the whole experience so cosy and picturesque I felt like I was in a different time!
Although we didn't get to use the pool, it looks amazing as do the grounds, so I do hope to make it back in another season,
I would highly recommend this property for an amazing stay, I plan to stay again whenever possible,

"My family and I recently stayed at this wonderful house for 10 days. We have two young kids (ages 3 and 18 months) who, having lived in Manhattan their whole young lives, had a blast running around carefree, enjoying nature and their new found freedom. The kids particularly enjoyed the jungle gym, the huge backyard and front lawn, and the movie room. They would spend hours outside playing tag, blowing bubbles, and kicking balls around. They rarely wanted to leave, except to go to Greig's Farm down the road where they got a kick out of picking blackberries and seeing goats. We also had friends and family visit at various times and there was plenty of room for everyone, especially on the gorgeous deck where we grilled and had lovely dinners. Although my kids weren't interested in it, the pool and hot tub were big hits for our visitors. It's shallow enough to stand up in it as an adult. The owners were also very responsive throughout the entire process. For instance, there was an issue with the sliding glass door to the deck and the owner fixed it within a few hours of being notified. The only thing I wished the house had was a screen for the front door so we could have kept the front door open to get a nice breeze without any bugs coming in. Very minor preference though. And a couple of visitors who stayed overnight in the downstairs bedroom mentioned that it was on the warm side. So it might be nice to have an A/C unit or other better ventilation down there in the future. It wasn't an issue for us at all since we stayed upstairs (and that's where most of the bedrooms are anyway). Overall, we had a terrific stay and recommend this house wholeheartedly. Thank you, Kristen and Steve! Your home is lovely and just what we needed. Hope to be back!"

"Bruna and her family are wonderful and this cabin is rustic but has everything you need. Incredibly clean. A very short walk into Tivoli and only 15min drive to Rhinebeck. We will be back without a doubt!"
