Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at many houses in the Catskills over the years and this was one of the best. The pictures don't really do it justice. Immaculately clean, filled with light and beautifully located on a stream. We're already planning a return trip!

Clean and comfortable! Very peaceful setting.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this quiet country house. It was very peaceful and relaxing. As we were there to visit my family who have a place nearby, we did not spend a great deal of time at the house. We did however enjoy some scenic walks, and trips into the charming nearby town of Livingston Manor. No wifi or internet, so a great place to really get away from it all!

This is our "happy place"

  • 5 of 5

I kind of want to give the house a bad review so other people won't go and it will be available for us always…but I can't. The house is clean and bright. We have gone two summers in a row. At first we thought the lack of WiFi or cable would be hard. But it is awesome to be disconnected.There is swimming at Mongaup pond (home to two Bald Eagles) 8 miles away but we were content cooling off in the creek. It is great for entertaining as well- fully equipped kitchen and grill and then some. We happen to have local friends so it was nice to have a group over. Plenty of "new" toys for my kids to be entertained but also a perfectly safe place for them to go out and explore on their own (age 5 and 7). This is a very special place to us and we can't say enough how wonderful and helpful the owners are. A lot of love went into the house to make it as nice as it is and you can feel that warmth around you. When you do leave the house there is an amazing playground at the local school and a track to run on. There are working farms to visit and there is a new German pastry shop opening up an a new French Bistro. The beds are comfortable (the master bed is kind of soft for my taste but my husband is fine w it). We are city people but we feel safe in this house because it has the feeling of being secluded but there are people close enough by. I would not change a thing about this house. Enjoy it. We cannot wait to go back.

Beautiful Home with interesting touches

  • 5 of 5

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at the house in Livingston Manor. It was private and quiet but very convenient. The area provided a variety of exploration destinations.

House was well cared for, clean with a kitchen that was a dream to cook in. Can't really think of anything you would need to bring.

Wonderful and well-located vacation home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house for a family visit to the Catskill region. It is spacious, light, characteristic and most importantly: clean. We spend a long weekend here with four adults and a toddler and time flew. The large open space that forms the living room, dining room and kitchen is wonderful. Our little one had plenty of space to run and play around when it was still too cold to go outside and we could enjoy the great kitchen. The house is stacked with everything you may need to cook, play games, relax, watch videos and have a good time. The backyard and porch are simply amazing. The spacious outside dining and seating areas, the large grass lawn and of course the creek make it impossible not to spend time outdoors when weather permits. In the end, we spend most of our time in and around the house, but there are plenty of great hikes and other outdoor activities nearby in the Catskills. Finally, the communication with the owners was very easy and helpful. We can highly recommend a stay in this vacation home.
