"My wife and I just finished our fourth annual stay, this one longer than ever by several days. We just can't get enough of the peace that this place offers. We are swimmers, so the private pond cannot be beat. The grounds are beautifully kept and afford many lovely views. The cottage is clean, comfortable, and surprisingly commodious, perfect for two. Twenty to thirty minutes away in any direction are charming towns and more cultural offerings than we could even begin to keep up with. (18 minutes to Tanglewood, where we heard Joshua Bell this year). And Beth is an absolutely devoted hostess, eager to make any improvement that will enhance your stay. Thanks, Beth!"

"My family and I stayed at this house for a week during the holidays, and it was perfect! All of the host's instructions (and recommendations!) were excellent and she was a pleasure to work with! The house is spacious and laid out very well for this kind of family get-together, where you can all hang out on the main level, which has a big, well-stocked kitchen, a huge living room with comfortable couches, and, as the name states, beautiful views of the Catskill mountains. The surrounding area is fantastic, woodsy and bucolic, just what we were looking for. There are some great restaurants nearby near the towns of Beacon and Hudson, and we also discovered a great grocery store (Otto's in Germantown). Overall, a great stay!"

"This is a wonderful house right on Lake Oscawanna-- perfect for swimming, canoeing, deer-watching and hiking. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need; also there was a huge gas grill on the deck. Furniture was extremely comfortable (and clean), and there were lots of books and games. Swings and basketball equipment were a bonus.
We were a family of six, from 2 to 70 years old, and we had a ball. The house is well-located for exploring the Garrison-Cold Spring area; we went over to Storm King Art Center, but we never made it to West Point (next time). The whole area was so lush and green that it was a real retreat from the heat and humidity 60-odd miles south. The temperature was extremely comfortable as well; we hardly had to use the air conditioning.
Ellen was a great hostess. It's an accomplishment to maintain a house like this, that's welcoming and comfortable from the minute you open the door. Thank you!"
