"Loved our time at Belle Knowle. If you're looking for space, relaxation, a home filled with charm and peace and quiet, this is the place for you! As soon as you drive in you'll feel the stress escaping your body. The barn is filled with beautiful furniture, linens even bath robes. Each room uniquely and tastefully decorated. The grounds are a special touch with the Magic Tree, fresh brook water, gazebo, pond, hot tub and 4 hole golf course complete with sand traps. We think our golden retriever Sadie enjoyed it as much as we did! Enjoyed our time reconnecting with family, sitting around the campfire and creating some fantastic meals in the fully equipped kitchen. This is one of those experiences that the pictures do not do justice of the property or the owners. Definitely recommend this!"

"My words will not do this rental justice...This rental is off the beaten path and secluded; however easily accessible. The tall pine forest welcomes you into a beautiful oasis of perfectly groomed and lush floral gardens surrounding the home. There is an amazing pool the kids really enjoyed (we couldn't get them out of it); and a flat grassy area large enough for a fun game of whiffle ball and/or lawn games. We also brought our bikes to bike around the hilly countryside. The home itself is simply magnificent! Plenty of space for our three family reunion. We didn't feel like we were crammed for space at all. There is a finished basement area the kids loved to hang out in; and multiple living rooms to relax in. The kitchen is well stocked and open. You have many options on where to eat. There is a large table that fit everyone; a round table in the other room which was perfect to play cards on as well; and then there were the teak tables & chairs on the grand deck out back. Just perfect! We were outside all the time. The owner, Sarah, is very easy to deal with and quickly responded to my questions by email or phone. All three families claimed that this "was the highlight of our summer". The only drawback was we didn't stay long enough...I would highly recommend renting this house. You will be happy that you did. Thank you Sarah for sharing your house..."

"Oh my gosh, what a spot! It's hard to believe we will be in New York City by noon. The greenery, the woods, the stream, the birds, the quiet was best of all. Had a great hike out to the Hudson and that only a 15-minute drive from the house. The house is comfortable with many avenues for relaxing, from the sunny deck to the screen porch, the bedroom is large and deliciously quiet, the downstairs living room the perfect place to watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee or the moonrise with a glass of wine. Really special and rejuvenating. Thank you!"

"My husband, myself & friends were looking for a relaxing weekend by the lake to take a break from the hustle & bustle of the city. We had a wonderful, fun and comfortable weekend despite Saturday's rainy weather. The owner, Robert was more than accommodating and welcomed us into his charming lake house home. We stayed on the top floor unit and shared the grounds and outdoor/lake equipment with the small group of guests staying in the bottom floor unit. We had more than enough space to share and never felt crowded or uncomfortable. We made good use of the outdoor space and enjoyed sitting outside when using the bbq and sitting by the bonfire pit. Robert made sure we were made aware of the local and neighborhood attractions, and we even ventured out to a nearby hiking trail just a short drive away. Thanks again Robert for a great stay, for nipping the bathroom issue in the bud asap, and for allowing us to make up for lost time on Sunday due to Sat's rainy weather. We highly recommend your lake house home and have a new appreciation for Whaley Lake & the Holmes, NY area!!! Hope to return back one day soon! Best, Elena, John & Friends"
