"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!"

"My husband, dog, and I recently spent a long weekend at Steve's lovely home on the Esopus creek. The house was very comfortable and clean, nice towels and linens; we were at home immediately. Such a nice touch to arrive to a fridge stocked with bread, eggs, jam, and milk for breakfast. We enjoyed unseasonably warm weather in November, and loved sitting outside on the beautiful deck, playing Scrabble with a bottle of wine one afternoon. Saugerties was an adorable town just a few minutes drive away with a few great restaurants and shops. Very close proximity to incredible hiking and skiing that we'd like to return for."

"My family has had the pleasure of staying in this house during each of the last two ski seasons, and we have had wonderful experiences. The house itself is very charming. In an area where some houses can be a bit "rustic," this house is quite beautiful with all of the wood beams. The kitchen has every single item of need. The beds are comfortable, and there is ample room to spread out. The location is terrific. So close to the town of Phoenicia with several good dining options (including our favorite - The Phoenicia Diner). It is also very close to Belleayre, Hunter and Windham, so all are accessible. It is also a short drive to Woodstock. On top of it all, the owner Sandy is truly a gem. She is extremely responsive to all questions and requests and really is such a pleasure. I recommend her and her house to anyone seeking a great getaway in the beautiful Catskills."

"I have to agree with the previous reviews - the place is spectacular - better than the pictures. Four friends get together every year and we have rented houses all over - and all agree, this is the best yet - probably never to be surpassed. The home is so well stocked - you think of it - it's there. All furnishings are beautiful but relaxing - nothing felt like you couldn't use it. Elizabeth is a wonderful host, greeting us to show us around her beautiful home and always available if the need arises. The pool is a huge bonus - after a day of sightseeing to come back and relax and watch the river and sunsets. The location is convenient to Hyde Park for the Culinary Institute - recommend taking the tour, and the Vanderbilt and Roosevelt Mansions - and to Rhinebeck with all it's great restaurants. I'm looking forward to getting back to the Hudson River Valley."
