The property and scenery was beautiful. The house was great for a group of us to stay in- plenty of space and beds. Amy was incredible to work with- so clear, responsive, and accommodating!

Last Minute LUCKY skiers!

  • 5 of 5

Amy and Family,

I just wanted to say thank you again for sharing your home with us. We had been looking for a place big enough for all of us (and the dog) the whole month of December, and I'm so glad we found you less than one week from our rental date!! The farm house was awesome. We loved the large, well stocked, open kitchen and gorgeous wide plank wood heated floors. So much charm in this house! There was enough room for 9 adults to hang out AND sleep comfortably. So much fun just hanging out with the kids/family. We played albums, games and completed puzzles together. The weather cooperated and Plattekill Mountain was perfect. No crowds there, easy on/off the ski lifts and accessible inside tables by a fire pit for the non skiers to hang out. Our kids skied for three days straight. The adults being able to use your vochures was an added bonus too! It snowed on Thursday and everything around the mountain and farm looked like a winter wonderland.

My family loved it. My sister's family loved it. It really couldn't have been any better. This place was so cozy and comfortable. If we decide to come back to NY next year, we'll definitely contact you. You should totally consider Airbnb if you don't use it already.

Thanks again for everything.

Beautiful space full of charm and surprise

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a group of nine looking for cozy, quiet accommodation for a wedding nearby. We played board games late into the night after we arrived and loved exploring the grounds in the morning. The kitchen had everything we needed, and all of the bedrooms were clean and comfortable.

My Son's Wedding

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this lovely farmhouse as a place for family members to gather upon the occasion of my son's wedding. The house was spacious, clean and comfortable, with wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. We especially enjoyed the quaint character of the house (wide plank floors, knick-knacks that the family treasured, an impressive library of interesting and uncommon books). Since it snowed one day, much to our surprise, I can also say that the house was both warm and cozy. I can only say "Thanks" to Amy for sharing her lovely home with us.

Welcoming owner/welcoming home.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this charming farmhouse for a family get together in Roxbury. I could not decide between this property and another. The exchanges I had by email with Amy, the owner just enthused such warmth, and desire to make our visit the best possible. On the other hand, the other propery exchanges were cold and non welcoming. I am so pleased I went with my gut and chose this beautiful farmhouse.

The moment we walked in we all felt this was our home away from home. This was not just a property to rent, it was a home that had been well taken care of and loved. You couldn't help but feel the warmth and love.

No lack of kitchen or bedding supplies.

There was no WiFi and spotty cell phone service so we enjoyed talking to each other, and taking walks on the premises. Also, there were many board games we could have played if time had permitted.

We had a very difficult time leaving, even the 3 yr. old cried when we left. She did not want to leave all the books and stuffed animals behind.

Thank You Amy for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Dear Gladys, we were delighted to accommodate your family and so pleased that you all had a lovely stay. Next time, feel free to allow your 3-year old to take home one of the stuffed animals! ~Amy

Charming farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for my son's wedding. We loved it. Lots of space to spread out. Everything you would need in a kitchen. Beautiful deck and yard. And Amy was a pleasure to work with. Even calling on our arrival to make sure everything was ok. Be aware cell phone service is spotty in Roxbury and there is no internet at the house so listen to Amy's advice and give out the house phone number!
