  • Charming, short weekend stay

    "We rented the house primarily as a place to sleep while attending a wedding in nearby Herondale Farms and wound up wishing we had time to just hang around the house and enjoy the property and views. It is wonderfully secluded; no other homes are in view and there. There are woods behind the house and a wonderful large meadow in front. It is the owner's country home and is very warm and personal. Some of the other wedding party stayed in modern houses around Upper Rhoda Pond but they were furnished as rentals and did not have the personal warmth of someone's home. The refrigerator was stocked with the request that we use what we need, replace what we have used up and throw out what was expired. Nice! The house was spotless; the internet did work and that is essential since cell phone reception is nil. There is also a landline for use and the owner considerately provides calling cards for long distance. It took a while to convince the owner to give me the exact location so I could be sure it was the property I viewed on satellite images but seeing how secluded it is I understand why the owner wanted to be sure we were serious renters. The only complaints, that were only from one of my adult sons, was that the beds are very soft, almost like feather beds. My wife loved that! There are nice artisan stores in Millerton, 20 minutes SE on Hwy 8, a good grocery store, and a nearby Alpaca farm. There are a few stairs so it's not wheel chair friendly but I was on crutches and had no problem. It's a lovely, personal home for well behaved guests!"

  • Unbelievable Wedding Weekend

    "Our wedding was quite the best weekend of my life. That being said, it took an army of support to make our dreams come true. The CURRENT staff (Bob, Dave, and company) were wonderful. We had worked with a previous property manager for the house and our experience with her was a bit of a nightmare. Bob went above and beyond to rectify the issues that were a result of this person’s mistakes. Bob and Dave made every effort to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. For example, the clothes dryer was broken, and within an hour of calling Bob they had replaced the dryer with a new unit. Bob and Dave made themselves available to our guests 24 hours a day and popped in every now and then to check on us. Like ninjas, they would check the pool temperature, take out garbage, spot clean the grounds - all without us ever knowing. I firmly believe, with these folks in place, this venue will succeed in hosting many more beautiful weddings. A few important notes about the house; the water is well water. This means it is treated in a specific way and the water has a sulphuric smell. This is not abnormal for this type of system, but can be a shock if you are not expecting it. YOU will not come out of the shower smelling of sulphur, but the bathroom will. Get yourself some incense or scented candles. I promise you will want them. The house is gorgeous but RUSTIC. If you are looking for a ultra modern, white glove mansion with sleek amenities, this house is not for you. For us all of the charm outweighed any need for glossy accouterments. The windows are worn, the cobblestones a tad loose, the pavilion a little leaky (it also rained really HARD on our wedding day). We had an easy to please, easy going crowd so none of this mattered to us - if you are into the beauty of vintage, shabby chic, rustic country venues this is the place for you. You will need to bring in EVERYTHING for your wedding (again not abnormal). This may change as SOH becomes more popular but at the time of our wedding it was truly a DIY venue. They require you rent a toilet trailer, you will need to bring in catering, and ALL rentals, flowers, etc. You will probably want a golf cart to transport guests to and fro and there is no formal ‘parking’ or ‘valet’ - another reason for a golf cart. But above all else, every single person at SOH was kind, helpful, and supportive. Our wedding day was extraordinary and we felt like we were in great hands the entire time."

  • Perfect Rental

    "My group of six friends spent a long weekend at Joe's beautifully restored barn. Everything about our experience was spot on. The structure is really a sight to be seen -- I was shocked to find a place so beautifully maintained for rental on VRBO. The bedrooms were super cozy and decked out with thick wool blankets to keep out the chill. We spent lots of time cooking in the perfectly appointed kitchen and sitting by the fire. And to top it off, the hot tub and sauna on the ground floor were the perfect way to keep the November chill at bay. This would definitely be the right rental for a large family or a group of close friends looking for a get-a-way. I am already plotting my return!"

  • FABULOUS!!

    "This house has it all!!! Immaculate design (this house is newly renovated-- with reclaimed materials--which to me is the ideal). It has top of the line fixtures and amenities. This house is the absolute perfect combination of rustic, chic, utility & comfort. We are a group of 8 friends (a combination of some couples and some singles) who escaped NYC for Mem Day Wknd. The kitchen is fantastic for a group of our size. We cooked every meal and aside from a few of the guys playing golf one morning, we never left the house! The outdoor patio area is so relaxing and fun to hang out in. Some of us would play bocce, others would be grilling, while some meandered over to the Icelandic ponies across the dirt road. There are multiple places to curl up and read a book for those looking for quiet downtime. In the evenings, we hung out in the basement area which has a sweet set up including a pool table, bar stools, surround sound, huge flat screen tv, and comfortable seating for playing games. Set on 400 acres, you could explore outside every day for hours. Things like two dishwashers and a separate wet bar with ice machine were major bonuses. The folks managing the property are also very attentive and hospitable! We will absolutely be back. Can't wait to rent again."
