"We can't say enough wonderful things about this property. The house is super cozy with an effortless blend of country kitsch and subtle elegance. Our favorite room was the screened porch, which is perfect for after dinner drinks or games, and the oversized chef's kitchen is another highlight. The grounds are huge, with a big raised dock (we had dinner out there and it was magical), diving board, canoe, wooden raft, swing, vegetable garden (we harvested fresh kale and basil for a homemade pesto and sampled fresh cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and sugar snap peas) and firepit. The master bedroom and downstairs are room are both extremely spacious, while the other two rooms (with an adjoining bathroom) are cozier, but still lovely. We had a few questions about the place when we arrived and the owner could not be nicer or more prompt. Red Hook and Rhinebeck are a short drive away, and there is a lovely farmer's market on Fridays in Milan. Some of our favorite spots were The Burrito Stand, Bread Alone and Hudson Valley Distillers. We can't wait to come back!"

"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!"

"We very much enjoyed our short stay at this house. We had a mini-reunion with my brother from western NY so the Catskills were a convenient mid-point (we live in Central Massachusetts). The house was in great shape and the deck overlooking the stream was the epitome of relaxing. The house was also well stocked except for a shortage of regular spoons. :-)
While we were in the area, we hiked to the Kaaterskill Falls which were very impressive. We also took a pleasant walk at the Ashokan Reservoir a short distance away and walked around Woodstock which was within a half-hour drive. We also saw the world's largest kaleidoscope (!) at the Emerson Spa, also close, and got coffee for the drive home at Mama's Boy in downtown Phoenicia.
Overall, just a very, very nice and easy experience. And I love the Homeaway mobile app that was very handy!"

"This cottage was so perfect. The location was in walking distance for the center of town where we enjoyed the local restaurants and culture. The creek flowing right outside our bedroom was so relaxing . My husband and I loved how the cottage was off the road nestled in the woods. Everything was amazing and we will definitely be returning."
