"We rented the house primarily as a place to sleep while attending a wedding in nearby Herondale Farms and wound up wishing we had time to just hang around the house and enjoy the property and views. It is wonderfully secluded; no other homes are in view and there. There are woods behind the house and a wonderful large meadow in front. It is the owner's country home and is very warm and personal. Some of the other wedding party stayed in modern houses around Upper Rhoda Pond but they were furnished as rentals and did not have the personal warmth of someone's home. The refrigerator was stocked with the request that we use what we need, replace what we have used up and throw out what was expired. Nice! The house was spotless; the internet did work and that is essential since cell phone reception is nil. There is also a landline for use and the owner considerately provides calling cards for long distance. It took a while to convince the owner to give me the exact location so I could be sure it was the property I viewed on satellite images but seeing how secluded it is I understand why the owner wanted to be sure we were serious renters. The only complaints, that were only from one of my adult sons, was that the beds are very soft, almost like feather beds. My wife loved that!
There are nice artisan stores in Millerton, 20 minutes SE on Hwy 8, a good grocery store, and a nearby Alpaca farm. There are a few stairs so it's not wheel chair friendly but I was on crutches and had no problem. It's a lovely, personal home for well behaved guests!"

Beautiful old house for a family vacation with a small kid
"We spent a nice week at the Clermont house:
The house was clean and warm. Three bedrooms and a nursery provided sufficient space for two couples, one adult, and a child. The house is old, but well kept and provides a modern kitchen, WIFI, and a large variety of movies and TV series.
The garden behind the house was nice to play ball and we also loved to watch the horses on the adjacent farm.
The next supermarket is about 20 minutes away, and major tourist attractions like the FDR estate or the walkway over the Hudson are about 45 minutes to drive. The house owner has compiled a nice list of things to do in the area. We also enjoyed the BBQ to go around the corner and the biplane ride at the Old Rhinebeck aerodrome.
The communication with the house owner was very convenient, every thing worked out fine."
