Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was a great place for our family of 6 adults and 4 kids. Lots of space, comfortable beds, quiet and private.Owner could not have been more welcoming and caring.

Perfect way to ring in the New Year!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed on this property during the weekend of New Year's Eve and could not have imagined a better way to celebrate. The home was cozy and had plenty of space for the 11 of us. We also took full advantage of the fireplace as the weather was frigid during this time of year, along with the well-equipped kitchen and dining space. Rooms were airy with ton of natural lighting. The cherry on top was meeting the host, Mikki, herself. She was kind enough to give us a tour of the home and provided us with guidance on how to use the amenities around the house. Highly recommend for anyone looking to get away around the Hudson Valley/Poughkeepsie area!

Alumni Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property with 11 of my friends for our college's alumni weekend. The house comfortably fit all 12 of us with lots of room to spare. Plus, the home was extremely clean! The house is beautifully tucked away into the woods. One morning, we woke up to a family of deer grazing in the yard. The wooded area around the home make this the perfect place to stay in during the fall months, as the changing leaves are picture perfect. The owner was great with answering any last minute questions. We would love to stay again!

Big Fun For WP Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights recently for my son's graduation from West Point, bringing family members in from across the country for the celebration. Mikki's place was spacious enough to accommodate all of us, even reaching 12 people for a couple of the nights. We had enough elbow room, with the kitchen and great room in particular great venues for a little conviviality. All of us really enjoyed the setting, including the decks where we were surrounded by greenery and birdsong. High marks!

Thanksgiving Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

My family (from New Jersey, NYC, and north of Boston) gathered for some time together for Thanksgiving. The layout of the house worked well for us (12 of us from late 60's down to 1) for dining (separate dining room), sleeping (comfortable beds), and just being together (spacious fireplaced great room). Mikki provided a large pan to cook the turkey, a contact for firewood, and literature for things to do in the area. We all appreciated having such a convenient, comfortable home to celebrate our Thanksgiving!
