Beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and Kathleen was very helpful and welcoming. I chose this house based on the reviews, for our party of 10 adults and 3 children, and I’m so glad I did. Beds were comfortable, kitchen is huge, everything we needed was there, and enough room for everyone without feeling cramped at all. This house is a gem.

What a delightful home and view

  • 5 of 5

We came from CA to have an upstate NY Thanksgiving with my daughter who lives in the city. What a delightful time! The house is a bit funky but resonates warmth, laughter and joy. There is lots of room to spread out, and each room has its unique charm. The scenery is to die for and the environs are great for hiking and just enjoying nature. Kathleen is a most helpful host. Thanks for sharing your home so that others can enjoy it!

Superb location

  • 5 of 5

We reached a bit late. The owner was super nice to call me earlier and made sure everything was perfect. The balcony is the highlight of this house. The location is super convenient to go hiking to Sam's point, Ice caves etc. Kids also had a good time around the play sets, the swing etc. Overall, very good experience.

Wonderful weekend

  • 4 of 5

Our family had an outstanding time. We had a wedding nearby and Kathleen was very helpful w/info about local hikes. We hiked Bear Hill, Sams Point and Ice Cave Mt all located in the vicinity of the house!

We were so fortunate the weather was so unseasonably warm in we enjoyed lunch on the beautiful deck and the home was spacious and charming. Everything was perfect!

Sunset Porch is a charming home in a breathtaking location! A day BBQing and visiting on the gorgeous sun deck! A lovely place to hike just steps away! An evening fire to warm the conversation. We had a wonderful weekend here and Kathleen was terrific!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! BBQ in the deck overlooking the mountain n the valley is mesmerizing! Too bad weather was overcast the whole time!

It was near to Minneswaki Lake, Aowsting Fall, both are beautiful yet easy for all level hikers.

Our host Kathleen is great! Can't ask for more!
