  • An incredible fall getaway with close friends and our labrador

    "Our weekend getaway to Idle Hour Farm exceeded all expectations. In fact, I would say it was the best weekend of my life. A group of 10 of us New York City dwellers packed our bags for what inevitably became a relaxing, rejuvenating, and inexplicably delightful stay. The pictures are lovely, but hardly do the place justice. It's hard to capture that end-of-summer / beginning-of-fall magic. The leaves were turning colors and beginning to fall, and the way the sunlight hit the lake and the illuminated the golden colors of the leaves in the backyard was just stunning. Our labrador had his first swim in the lake / pond out back, and was so happy to have so much freedom to run around and play fetch and to nap in the sun. We really lucked out with 80 degree weather, and some of the group went swimming and took the little paddleboat out onto the water. At night, we used the propane grill to make a feast of grilled vegetables, burgers, hot dogs, and the works. The little beach near the water became the perfect place to gather around the bonfire pit, roasting s'mores (it was a first for the Australian and Swede who were with us) and listening to my boyfriend play the guitar by the campfire. Two from our group went on a nearby scenic hike that Susan had recommended, to the Fire Tower. We had planned to go to the nearby vineyard for a wine tasting and to the orchard for apple picking but we just couldn't pull ourselves away from the house. It was everything we needed and more. There was plenty of space for the 10 of us, with big, comfortable rooms, an open office that perfectly fit an air mattress, and two huge, comfy couches down in the basement. The basement area became our hangout spot for the first night, where there was also a nice, well-equipped kitchen with all the amenities you could need, and a great dining room table. We listened to music and relaxed downstairs for the night. The next evening, we played Scrabble out on the expansive deck and continued to relax out there through dinnertime; the table fit our entire feast (cupcakes and wine and all) and was just wonderful. Everyone had an absolutely amazing time. It was certainly a weekend we'll all remember for years to come. Thank you Susan, for sharing your beautiful home with us for the weekend."

  • FABULOUS!!

    "This house has it all!!! Immaculate design (this house is newly renovated-- with reclaimed materials--which to me is the ideal). It has top of the line fixtures and amenities. This house is the absolute perfect combination of rustic, chic, utility & comfort. We are a group of 8 friends (a combination of some couples and some singles) who escaped NYC for Mem Day Wknd. The kitchen is fantastic for a group of our size. We cooked every meal and aside from a few of the guys playing golf one morning, we never left the house! The outdoor patio area is so relaxing and fun to hang out in. Some of us would play bocce, others would be grilling, while some meandered over to the Icelandic ponies across the dirt road. There are multiple places to curl up and read a book for those looking for quiet downtime. In the evenings, we hung out in the basement area which has a sweet set up including a pool table, bar stools, surround sound, huge flat screen tv, and comfortable seating for playing games. Set on 400 acres, you could explore outside every day for hours. Things like two dishwashers and a separate wet bar with ice machine were major bonuses. The folks managing the property are also very attentive and hospitable! We will absolutely be back. Can't wait to rent again."

  • Absolutely Perfect!

    "My husband and I were lucky enough to be able to sneak away for a few days for our 11th anniversary and this truly was our "Haven on the Hudson". Everything in the description is accurate and Chad was just truly wonderful!! He was always available to answer my questions and it was so nice to meet him the day we arrived. He even left us a nice surprise in the fridge for our anniversary! The house is just gorgeous and any view out of the MANY windows is breathtaking! The house is well stocked from the kitchen to the bedrooms and you need not bring anything except clothes and food. We spent the days fishing from the row boat or the dock, napping (It’s so peaceful I took 3 naps in one day) and when I didn’t feel like going fishing, I just curled up in the recliner with my Kindle in front of that gorgeous view. We were married in the town of Saugerties so we spent an afternoon visiting the church and Seamans park (which is beautiful in the fall with all of the mums) and having dinner at Emiliano’s restaurant (which is where we had our rehearsal dinner and the food was still great). We woke up early one morning to weird sounds and jumped up to see what it could be and it was a group of turkeys wandering around outside. I liked not knowing what I may see or run into. Don’t hesitate…..just book your dream house!! MANY, MANY thanks Chad for making this happen for us!!!"

  • Five Stars, Hands Down!

    "We had an awesome time in Hudson, mainly because the accommodations were so stellar. The house is clean and decorated in a chic, Mid-Century style while the backyard/deck area is spectacular. We had high hopes for the property and if far exceeded our expectations. Marty is really wonderful to rent from, he's really responsive, super friendly and provided great recommendations for things to do in the area. My fiance and I rented the house with another couple over Labor Day weekend and hope to rent again sometime this fall!"
