"I stayed here with six other friends over a long summer weekend. The house was both spacious and comfortable and easily accommodated all of us. The back deck is the perfect for grilling sausages, ribs, and anything else you can imagine. The kitchen was fully stocked with all of the supplies we needed. The house is a 5 minute drive to the center of town, and fifteen minutes from Tuthilltown Distillery. If you are looking for a calm, peaceful getaway spot that is not far from the city, this is the place for you. I highly recommend staying here!"

"Our running club decided to get away from the city for a long weekend. Claudine's house was the perfect getaway! We had a massive group (about 16!) and she was kind enough to let us all stay. A few of us were on air mattresses, but overall there was more than enough room. We spend the days hiking and exploring the area. In the evenings, we came home and cooked in her beautiful kitchen and sat by the fire.
Claudine was a wonderful host and we look forward to coming back! The house was an easy 20 minute walk away from the train station and made the ideal getaway for all of us coming from NYC without cars. Can't wait to return!"

"I wanted to surprise my husband on his birthday with a weekend getaway outside of the city. We invited a couple of friends to stay with us, and brought my aging Lab mix Willis. We arrived late on Friday night, and were blown away by the barn. Some of the original beams were kept and give the place a very warm, rustic feel. But the hot tub, sauna, spa shower downstairs, gaming systems, and tv were anything but! The place has the perfect balance of homey and modern. The wood floors and wood burning stove give the place a warm feel, and that modern chef's kitchen makes it easy to whip up a five star meal. The best surprise though was in the morning when we all got a look at the view for the first time. Amazing, picturesque picture windows all throughout the main floor - each more beautiful than the last. Freshly fallen snowscape, the sound of the creek trickling past the house - Willis had a blast trying to follow the animal tracks in the snow! We all had such a good time this weekend. We will definitely be coming back!"

"My husband, two kids and I have stayed at Cottage now for three summers, for a week to 10 days in late August. These have been some of the most magical days of our life! We hang out on the porch looking over the massive, expansive grass lawn, breathing in the oxygen and serenity... all you can see is grass and trees, and in the distance, the red hen house, with beautiful funny chickens running around in the mornings. After breakfast, we head down to the lake, a couple minutes walk, and swim on-and-off all day, using the canoes and paddle boats. The lake is gorgeous and clean, surrounded by lovely trees, and features little fish and turtles that sun themselves on logs. Peg and her husband keep the grounds so well groomed that you get the feel of being on an old classic estate with rolling hills and landscaping to admire. It's relaxing and lovely. Peg and her husband are great hosts while giving you all the privacy you need to feel you are in your own secluded space. Peg rides around in the mornings on her golf cart with eggs from the hen house, and she's been really generous to let our daughter, who is 8, ride around with her and help collect the eggs. I can't recommend Cottage more. The furnishings are modest, the beds are very comfortable with nice linens, and the little brick and wood house is all set up for grilling and time spent reflecting on the porch. There's also a screened-in room in back that the kids love to play in. (Our other child has been an infant to 2 year old when we've visited). I hope we can visit every year.
We visited once in autumn and it was just as gorgeous, refreshing and intoxicating as it is in summer."
