Guestbook comments from the owner

David,







Thanks for sending the deposit back so quickly. We did receive it yesterday.







Thanks for letting us stay at your home. It was so absolutely perfect for our family—plenty of space for all of us to sleep and gather together for games, etc. The guest house was perfect for our family with little children who go to bed much earlier than our teenagers and who also get up much earlier than all of the rest of us. The pond was great and it was especially wonderful to have all the toys, etc to use. We also enjoyed the canoe, the fire circle, the ATV and the beauty of the land. We just wished we had more days to just spend at the house, enjoying the quiet and beauty.







Thanks also for being so easy to work with. You answered all of our questions quickly and provided much needed information about the area.







We would love to come back some time and will surely refer you to any who might be vacationing in that area.







Thanks for helping make our family vacation so enjoyable!

Notes:
Hunting is not allowed on premises. The 1,500 acre Slader Creek state forest across the street is ideal for hunting. The spring fed 3/4 acre pond on the hill is perfect for swimming and stocked with fish . We treat the water with barley straw which acts as hydrogen peroxide and keeps the algae to a minimum. The pond has a shallow end for kids with an 18 ft deep end for snorkeling. There is a nice size sandy beach with a dock and seating for 8 people. We have plenty of sand toys for the kids to use on the beach. Bring your own beach towels! 6 passenger Polaris Ranger Crew ATV is available to rent for $300 a week. A great vehicle to get around the property. No other ATV's allowed on property! We have lots of board games & outdoor games including horse shoes and an outdoor camp fire spot. 5 child swing-set just installed. This property is secluded from large farms, thus no worries about breathing animal odors. Come and enjoy the fresh air in the hills! High-speed Internet access installe

A perfect get away for our whole family both kids and adults

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our family (19 total). The owner was very helpful and great to work with and has thought of everything to make your stay perfect from toys for the kids to needed supplies in the kitchen and throughout the house. It's a very relaxing setting. The pond is great and away from the house so no worries about the kids finding it accidentally. The ATV rental is highly encouraged and perfect for getting around. The kitchen was fully stocked. Plenty of beds and rooms for everyone! We enjoyed swimming, fishing, hiking, ATV rides, the bonfire, swinging on the swings and relaxing together. Niagra Falls is just a 2 hour drive and made for a great day out for the whole family. We highly recommend Letchworth State Park. The scenery is breathtaking. My kids said it was the best vacation house ever with everything you need, and they especially loved the soft blankets provided.

Great Family gathering spot...perfect for lots of Grandchildren

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room and space to enjoy - great outdoor fun. It easily accommodated our 20 family members from 6 months to 60 years! We greatly appreciated the crib and playpen and the plentiful supply of toys, both inside and out, that kept all busy and entertained. We swam and boated in the pond - there were even life-preservers for the little ones and plenty of sand toys. Kitchen is well stocked with all needed to do home cooking (although the pizza made and delivered by the local grocery store was excellent). We had our children and spouses and grand-kids coming from NY, VA, OH, KS, and UT and needed a "family gathering spot" - this was perfect for playing, visiting, walks, naps, swimming, Ranger-ride stay at home days, and close enough that we went to several State Parks, Niagara Falls, and our churches historical sites. It is a large farm house atmosphere on beautiful property - not your fast-paced or exotic beach resort or cruise ship type of vacation that we have done before... and that is what made it a perfect and relaxing time for our family!

Great for families and large groups!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here! The house has everything you could need, right down to a kitchen stocked with just about any pantry item you could need. The pond was peaceful and serene and was a great place to get together in the evening for a little quiet time with my sisters. The kids enjoyed boating on the pond and the nice new swing set. I highly recommend renting the six wheeler as anyone older or with bad knees will need it to get to the pond. It also gives you the chance to tour the property and enjoy the beautiful views. All the bedrooms make it a great place for large groups and the claw foot tub was great for the kids! David was very response and easy to work with. I highly recommend!

Most Memorable Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family loved vacationing to New York!! The owner provided excellent customer service during booking and our stay. This was the first vacation with my siblings as adults. It was great to spend quality time with my nephews and nieces(ages 4-14). This property accommodated our large family(12 adults, 5 children). We had an amazing stay and didn't want to leave! We traveled at the beginning of June but would consider future bookings later in the summer because the temperature was a bit cooler than we expected. We enjoyed hiking, fishing, driving the buggy, long nights under the stars, and spending quality time together on the property. No complaints from our stay. I would recommend this to anyone. I can't wait to return!

Winterfest

  • 5 of 5

+Twenty of our family just returned from a wonderful weekend at David's home. We call it Winterfest, and it's the first time we've had it here. The fact that there was no snow made no difference! We thoroughly enjoyed this home and the land around it. David was a very attentive host, and all his directions were clear and helpful. There was plenty of room inside for games, meals, conversations, and a talent show. Outside, we delighted in the firepit, and frequent walks to the pond and around the property. Very enjoyable! We'll be back this summer!
