"We have stayed in this house 3 times now - in spring, summer and fall - and each time has been wonderful. The house has a lot of character and feels loved and lived in, but it is very comfortable with good heating, nice beds and linens etc. It has large dining tables both inside and on the porch, perfect for big long meals. It also has a really well equipped kitchen with a big 5 burner gas cooktop, double electric oven, espresso maker, lots of great pans etc. The porch has a nice view with the garden stepping down. There is a fireplace in the living room, and nice wood floors, and a beautiful grand piano. It is so quiet, you will only see one or two cars pass in the whole day, and barely an airplane in the sky. The air is wonderful, and stars very visible at night as there is no light pollution around. You can walk to Bear Hill which has a fantastic view, in about 20 minutes, and to Cragsmoor library and the beautiful Stone Church. We also hiked in Minnewaska state park, to the waterfall, to Lake Awosting and at Sam's point. Easy to book and the house was open and clean when we arrived, and Kathleen was helpful with information about the area. Definitely would recommend this place!"

"We just got back from a week at Willow Lake and we had an amazing time. We had a large group (12 people) ranging from little kids to teens to grandparents and everyone loved it. We stayed in the two adjoining rentals at the gatehouse and it was plenty of room for all of us. Peg was wonderful and even gave us fresh eggs during our entire stay! There was a ton to do from fishing to paddle boating to a campfire by the lake. The property is very private, but still close enough to grocery stores, the colleges (we were there for a Vassar graduation) and sights to be able to do lots of activities including going down into the city for the day. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to get away and relax!"

"We just used this home for our family reunion and can recommend it heartily. It was spacious, clean, comfortable and charming. The cousins never got bored, between taking the paddle boat or canoe out, playing air hockey, billiards, swimming in the pool or playing hide and go seek all over the house. The kitchen is spacious and well stocked. We had J&J Gourmet from Red Hook cater our evening meals...they were helpful, timely, responsive, reasonably priced and the meals were quite delicious and varied. We all agreed that we'd look forward to using them again in the future!"
