"I'm not much for reviews but just had to say that while the weather was cold and rainy outside, spending time in this home with two nice fireplaces and very comfy hangout areas was a pleasure. The house is beautifully decorated and the owner has a caretaker who prepped the house impeccably for us. Too bad he didn't cook us dinner..."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this spacious cabin! It is right next to the owners' house, but we probably would never have seen them if we hadn't needed help with the TV, which was provided right away. The kitchen is well equipped and a bundle of wood was available for the fire place. There's also a heater, which made things warm and cozy. The damage deposit was returned very promptly. Would definitely recommend and rent again!"

"Our stay in Avalon Cottage was truly delightful. It is a charming home and so comfortable. The Cottage is ideally located for day trips to explore areas of the Hudson River Valley and Western Massachusetts and so welcoming to us on our return "home". We enjoyed the quiet and relaxed atmosphere, especially time on the back deck relaxing, reading and watching the wildlife. Our vacation was truly wonderful thanks in large part to feeling so at home in Avalon Cottage."

"Rented the home this weekend with a group of late 20's - mid 30 somethings while we were in the area for a wedding. Very responsive helpful and kind property manager/owner during booking process. This house is absolutely amazing. The pictures don't come close to doing it justice. First off, I would love for the owner to come decorate my apartment. It has a vintage/contemporary vibe going on. The amount of natural light coming in is unreal and nice to wake up to (though not overpowering in the morning thanks to the surrounding forest.) Having 2 full bathrooms was great for us and the home was VERY clean, spacious, and surprisingly private despite the fact that they share the road with other houses. We enjoyed the porch, grill and hot tub, which was SO nice with the fall colors and cool nights. Tip for comfort: recommend bringing a hoodie and some slippers for the night because it can get a little chilly but nothing that these two things can’t fix. We found we were not too far from town, where there are coffee shops, grocery, restaurants, and a little bit of shopping. Bard college is not far away so there is a younger crowd mixed in with the locals and the town has a little bit of a hippy feel to it. The property is convenient to several other small towns (the wedding itself was in Germantown). There is some nice easy hiking in the area as well as apple farms and a fun little corn maze. Great for all types of groups, BOOK IT!! Can’t wait to come back. Highly recommend this property."
