Guest Comments: Hi Kathy,
I wanted to let you know that I received your check and card in the mail yesterday. Thank you so much for getting that to me so quickly.
And thank you for a WONDERFUL vacation! We loved the house and had such a great time in it. Everyone was delighted with the sauna, and the living room and kitchen were both perfect for hanging out while cooking or playing games. We took a beautiful walk up the nature trail in the snow and it was grea to have that so accessible from the house. Roxbury seems like a really cute town and it was easy to get to from both Boston and New York.
Please feel free to use any of the above as a testimonial! We had a wonderful time and couldn't have asked for a cozier, more inviting house to spend the holiday in.
Take care and I'll let you know if any of us are interested in returning to Roxbury in the future!

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: John and I met in the Hamptons in the summer of 1988; love at first sight; married in 1990. He lived in Queens, NY and I in Lawrenceville, NJ. Being an older couple for our first marriage and having a daughter late as well, we didn't know any better than to take our baby skiing with us. She was born in June of 1993 and has been on skis since her very first winter! John took her down the teaching slope at Gore Mt. Her eyes were like saucers and a huge smile was on her face. If there were a cartoon bubble over her it would have said: "of all the adults in the world I could get for parents, I get these two loonies"! Anyway, we skied every winter and fell in love with Plattekill Mt. and Roxbury.
Why the Owner Chose Roxbury, NY, USA:
Our daughter was in the 8th grade when we purchased our home. Being in town made perfect sense. She and her friends could go out for some pizza within walking distance and we knew they would be safe. That age definitely does not want to be stranded on a bunch of acres in the middle of nowhere! The sauna and jacuzzi in the house was/is her personal spa! We, too, could easily walk to the Public and not worry about her.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the layout of our home: the kitchen area is terrific, the upstairs sauna and jacuzzi are wonderful, the creek just beyond our porch is most relaxing. We still have mountain views although we are in town! We love the property with the copse of trees shading the hammock in the summer. The house is close to everything: skiing, golf, the happenings in Roxbury. We have it all!
