Great Home !

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for 3 weeks to be near family and friends. Beautiful home that made you feel welcome as soon as you opened the door - even better than the great photos. Furnished and equipped to a very high standard - Perfect for entertaining or peaceful relaxation with all the amenities you would expect in a 4 star hotel.

Immaculate inside and out. Fabulous sparkling private pool and awesome sunset views .Landlord friendly and generous - we loved staying here and would highly recommend this home.

We are looking forward to returning and thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Owner's Response: Anne - Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay, and all of the amenities of the property. I know that I speak of the peace, quiet, and especially the sunsets in my listing, but until you have been there, it's hard to imagine it's that good. Thanks for confirming it for me!! Fitch enjoyed having you as guests as much as you enjoyed staying on the property. He looks forward to having you return next summer, and hopefully for many more after that! Thanks again for the wonderful review. Kim, Property Manager for Hawk Haven Farm

Pawling, NY is located on the eastern side of the Hudson Valley, bordering Connecticut. The area is known for its beautiful countryside, and it's convenience to NYC which is located just 70 miles south.

For those that hike, walk, bird watch, or just appreciate the outdoors, Hawk Haven Farm is situated on the Appalachian Trail and there is also access to the 1000 acre Pawling Nature Reserve just 100 yards from your door. For the fly fishing enthusiast, the Ten Mile River is located just north of Pawling. During the warmer months, you might find yourself seeking out the many antique shops, farmers markets, and flea markets in the area, and for those who enjoy the winter months, Thunder Ridge a small downhill ski area is located just 5 miles south of town. In addition to Thunder Ridge, Mohawk, Catamount, and several other mountains are all within an hours drive from Pawling. If X-country skiing is your thing the property at Hawk Haven Farm is perfectly suited for you. If you'd like to explore further, the local town park has a system of X-country/hiking trails also. For those with an equine interest, Pawling and the surrounding area is know for its many horse farms. We would be happy to make a recommendation to one of the local facilities based on your interest and ability.

Perhaps the most spectacular part of the Hudson Valley Region, and Pawling, is the Fall Foilage. The distant mountain display of fiery red, brilliant yellow, and glowing orange leaves dominate the views at Hawk Haven Farm during the fall months. During daylight hours you might enjoy apple picking or pumpkin picking at one of the several apple orchards and pumpkin patches located just minutes from the farm, and after your day of picking, grab your sweatshirt and the marshmallows and head out to fire pit located on your patio... Relax and unwind in the crisp clean country air.
