Great house with amazing owners
We stayed at this house thru New Year holiday. Let me tell you, it was great experience. They had hot tub, billiards, ping pong table ....everything you needed to enjoy the vacation. The security deposit we got back right on next day we moved out! What a great house and what a beautiful owners! Thanks again
The Perfect Getaway
This was the perfect getaway! Plenty of room and sleeping arrangements for our eleven adults and one child with room to spare. Lots of dining and gathering areas as well as nooks for those who wanted a little time alone. This spacious mountain house was exactly what we wanted for solitude yet the quaint town just five minutes away provided all we needed to keep well-stocked with food and drinks. The hot tub was divine! Roula and Chris were extremely available, responsive and accommodating. Five stars all around for the Xenia! We’ll be going back next year.
Perfect for a getaway with friends, great in every way!
I stayed at Roula's for 3 nights with a few of my friends for our annual reunion. We had a great time. The house itself is great, has everything one needs to cook a nice meal, for entertainment (hottub, pingpong table, pool table, TV and sound system, games), very comfortable sleeping arrangements. The house comfortably sleeps 16, not counting couches. We had no issues at all with heat or hot water which we often face in the winter with mountain houses. Everything was also very clean and organized. We loved having the open green lawn outside for morning yoga and a bonfire at night. The place is very close to town so in case you forget to get any necessities you can grab them easily. It is also very close to beautiful Elm Ridge hiking trails. Highly recommend this place and would love to stay here again soon.
We stayed here for a wedding in Gilboa about 20 minutes away which worked out great. Plus there is so much to do here we ran out of time. Drive to Woodstock to eat and hike a few trails. Did the kaayerskils falls hike, the elm forest hike 6 mile round trip hike plus a few more. Then hit the hot tub at the house. The restaurants recommended by the wine/liquor store lady were great. Brandywine pasta on Wednesday , Captains overlook on Thursday plus Mikes dinner for breakfast and the excellent French bakery opened on weekends only can't be missed Great time great home. Thanks
We all were mostly happy with the place accept for the deck area.
We had good time and enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit but were disappointed with the deck area. Inside of the home was clean and kitchen was equipped. Deck area definitely needs major work. Paint has come of the wood and looks horrible. I will not rent this house unless the owners take care of the deck.
Very beautiful place March 26
Everything about this house was beautiful. The owners were very professional. They responded in a timely manner. We had absolutely no issues. I will definitely recommend this house for a group of friends or family.
