We stayed here in early oct 2017 as a family gathering and the property is really beautiful.

There is plenty of room to spread out and the sunroom is great. The owner was very responsive to many questions I had and always responded in a timely manner. The outdoor area is spectacular and very peaceful and my kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool, hot tub, trampoline and playground. All in all , a very relaxing stay.

Great House and Owners!

  • 5 of 5

This house in Sherman is incredible, and pictures don't do it justice. Ami was extremely helpful in answering my calls and texts!

House is perfect for a weekend getaway with friends and family. We will definitely be staying again in the future!

If staying here, make sure you use Google Maps or ask Ami beforehand about house location. Waze had a tough time locating address.

Overall our stay could not have been better.

Great house, amazing location!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights very recently. The house is great. Very functional. All bedrooms are well appointed. The playroom is great with ping pong table, pool table! The location of the house is unbeatable. Very quiet, on a pond. The view from the kitchen every morning when you get up is breathtaking. The swimming pool and the adjacent hot tub are perfect to spend a sunny day with family and friends. Owners are very responsive and accommodating. A great time overall. We will be back!!!

Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Had a great week at the property. Never a dull moment. Beautiful area. Terrific activities at the house and nearby. Would have given five stars, but I sliced my finger instead of a bagel on my last day and had to drive to New Milford to get stitches. Other than that, a great vacation.....

New York City

The perfect getaway house I wish I didn't have to get away from!

  • 5 of 5

At the risk of causing this house to be uber popular and losing out on future availability when I want to return here, I will go ahead and write this glowing review: this rental property is magnificent! Book your vacay here, and expect to be wowed immediately.

From NYC, this property is a short hour and change drive or train ride away. (The train station is a scenic 12 minute car ride from the house. FYI: $25 with the local cab) As soon as you arrive, all the nagging "what if I booked a dud of a house" thoughts you may have had on your drive will dissipate and are replaced by "oh wow, everyone in our party is going to love me for finding this spectacular find!"

The setting could not be more picturesque and refreshing. Lush greenery all around, and a beautiful mirror-like pond is directly across from all the house's airy windows. It's hard to not mistake this scenery with a painting!

The house itself is spacious, fully-furnished, well-stocked, comfortable (yet chic), and loaded with all the necessary ingredients for a relaxing and fun time away from it all-- for ALL, young and old alike.

Cherry on top: the owner (Amy) is wonderful to communicate with and is superbly responsive. This was especially helpful when we had a minor (and quickly resolved) concern during our stay. Amy was quick to respond, and even quicker to problem solve! (Thank you!)

I do have to bring up 2 possibly insignificant items that may potentially be a problem for some families (they weren't for us and hopefully they won't be for you, especially now that you are aware and can plan accordingly):

1. The (beautiful) master bedroom is ultra bright due to a lovely sky light that can't be blocked. This may be a problem if you're staying there with a baby. (But there are 3 other wonderful bedrooms that you can stay in instead.)

2. The only bathroom in the lower level is the ensuite in the bedroom. So if you have others sleeping in the bunk beds of the "flex room" of the lower level, this may be an issue for middle of the night bathroom trips. (It was no problem for our group as the bathroom upstairs was a 20 second walk away.)

... Again, these are quite minor, but I like to be completely honest in my review.

Overall, my family and friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. And we hope to repeat our stay in a few months-- it seems impossible, but I'm positive that we will love the picture perfect setting even more so than this last lovely time around.
