Wonderful month in the Hudson Valley
We rented this home for a month in August 2017 and our experience was wonderful from start to finish! The house has dozens of amenities that are perfect for families -- heated pool, trampoline, tennis court, bocce court, lake for fishing, basketball, bird feeders, outdoor fireplace, fields to run around in . . . . We could have stayed on the property the entire month and never gotten bored. The house is the perfect blend of cozy and well-appointed. It is clearly a beloved family vacation home and outfitted for absolutely everything. The kitchen is amazing, stocked with anything you could need to cook, bake or entertain (including an awesome built-in griddle for pancakes!). We loved having lunch and drinks on the bluestone patio and dinner on the screened-in porch. And the area was all beautiful rolling hills, farm stands, and cute little towns to explore. We already miss it so much! The owner is wonderful and was very attentive to everything we needed. Highly, highly recommmended.
Amazing Home in the Wonderful Woods
This was an amazing place for our 3 night stay in mid-June as we were attending a wedding in Rhinecliff, NY. The house was perfect for our group and everyone seriously enjoyed the large patio, wonderful heated pool, and the screened porch. We had a great time going to the farm pond out back and caught a few catch-and-release largemouth bass! The home-site is nicely secluded and well off the main road so we didn't even hear any traffic noise.
The kitchen was incredible and stove, refrigerator and 2 dishwashers were all well utilized. Even did some grilling on the big grill out back! It was very nice to have had window air conditioner units as well since the daytime high on Sunday got up to 94.
The owner Carol was very accommodating and very attentive to all our communications. The price was better than any other options in the area as well! I will definitely recommend this property for anyone with 8 to 10 people and would definitely come back next we're up there!
Thanks so much Carol for sharing your lovely home with us!
Fantastic private resort
I was so impressed with the property, cleanliness and condition. Fantastic experience with everything you'd possibly want or think of! I'm coming back again!
This property was absolutely beautiful. Arriving at the property was breathtaking with all of the surrounding tree covered mountains and nature. This was only matched by the secluded, yet conveniently located, property. After traveling up the driveway, you see a tennis court, basketball court and the wonderful home. The property is beautifully maintained, as is the home. The home provides a country feel with all of the amenities of a newly built home. The owners have taken meticulous care of the property. Moreover, they thought of everything. Seriously, the kitchen is fully equipped, there are multiple rooms, the screened in porch permits outdoor exposure without full exposure, the front porch is Rockwellian, the bathrooms have all of the amenities and the home is filled with details that keep smiles on the faces of the inhabitants. The pool is wonderful and encompassed in a peaceful, fully fenced in area that provides an oasis on a property that has ample picturesque, quiet areas. The pond and gazebo are beautiful and provide another means of reflection or activity, depending on one's objectives. The property is sprawling and provides ample options for hiking, exploring or observing wildlife. The sunsets and sunrises were beautiful and the stars were unmatched. The surrounding mountains offer some history, along with countless outdoor activities.
The property is close in proximity to numerous wonderful small towns that offer great food, art, farmer's markets, historical tours and a plethora of other activities. The people in the surrounding community are welcoming and warm. Boat tours of the Hudson River are also a wonderful and readily available option for activities.
My wife and I went to stay at the property for our anniversary. Our sister, nieces (2) and nephew came along for the first half of the week long stay. The kids range in age from ten (10) to fifteen (15) and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Once they departed from home, the property had sufficient options and a surplus of tranquil beauty that my wife and I spent several of the remaining days on the property enjoying all it had to offer. In fact, we had such a wonderful time, my wife and I extended our stay another day.
Carol was an absolutely pleasure to deal with from the initial reservation to the end of our stay. She was communicative, cooperative and very accommodating. The pride the family has in this property shows through and it is wholly warranted.
Perfect Family Vacation!!
I can't say enough great things about this vacation. I echo the sentiments of the other reviews. The house was perfect. Carol and her family have given careful thought to what a vacation house should have. The kitchen has everything you could possibly ever need. The pool was so great - my kids went swimming every day and couldn't get enough of the water. My family went on the hiking trails and we used the tennis court and basketball net. If you want to get away from it all and you want to relax with your family, this is the perfect house. There is something for all ages. Thank you Carol for a wonderful vacation.
A Memorable Long Weekend
From the initial reservation, to several interchanges with Carol, to the actual long weekend at the end of June, this was a marvelous (and surprise) celebration of my wife's 75th birthday. Ten of us -- including our children and grandchildren -- stayed in almost perfect comfort, surrounded by beauty and in a beautiful home. Our three grandchildren would have stayed in the wonderful pool forever if we had permitted it. We all enjoyed the grounds greatly and there is lots to do. With such a large group, two of us had to sleep on the pull out couch in the media room. I do not recommend that. The mattress is hard as a rock and somewhat inclined. Other than that, the accommodations were perfect and Carol could not have been more helpful. She allowed us to come early on Friday and leave late on Monday. Less than two hours from New York City, the house and the grounds have everything one could ask and more. A truly memorable weekend.
