About Jenifer Crosby
We are a family that has a vacation home 5 minutes from this home. We have been in the area for 9 years and love it. We hope you do as well. We can share all the fun places to visit when you are here
Jenifer Crosby purchased this House in 2013
Why Jenifer Crosby chose Ancram
We love the drama of the double height open living room with the focal point the stone fireplace. Add to that the large open kitchen with a long eating bar/countertop. The bedrooms are nicely split up for privacy and there is access to the deck from 3 places. The pool is a wonderful feature for use 4 months of the year.

Great House, Great Host
This house was amazing. When we arrived, everything was clean and organized. The house is very spacious and the basement is a great bonus to the property. Jenifer was beyond accommodating and available at all times for any inquiries. The pool was clean and great! Thank you Jenifer!
Lovely house, great location - all very good! Only one slightly odd thing was the gardener coming whilst we were there and didn't know about it (unless it was written in the documentation somewhere and I missed it). Thanks so much for a great stay!
Great house and pool. Lake not for swimming, very weedy.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Plenty of room for our family of six adults and two kids. A well supplied kitchen and linen closet, three TV's and good air conditioning, as well as a tastefully furnished house made our stay quite nice.
Jenifer Crosby was very welcoming and helpful. She responded to our requests promptly and efficiently.
Unless you want lakeside swimming, it's a great place to vacation.
Wonderfully relaxing location!
This home was just perfect for the group of 8 women who came on a getaway weekend. We were so happy to relax by the pool, hit some of the nearby winery's for tastings, head into Hudson for some browsing and good eats, and enjoy the mornings and evenings by the lake. We were also able to visit nearby copake lake and rent a pontoon boat for the day which was so enjoyable. The house itself was just right, very comfortable and inviting, spacious, nicely decorated and very well maintained! I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to kick back and catch up on some R& R. The area is lovely and there is plenty to do with Hudson only a short drive away.
we live in Brooklyn where space is a commodity so for us this house was fantastic. There is so much for our group of kids to do indoors and outdoors. The basement was a big hit as the kids could claim it as their own play space. The lakeside was also another great fairy house construction play area for our 5 year olds. Overall it's a great house and next time we'll rent the house when we can use the pool.
Fantastic Multi-Family gathering location
We had a great time at the house with 8 adults and 3 children (ages 1, 2, and 3). The house we plenty big enough for everyone to have space to hang out, nap or play. The pool was perfect, lots of floatation toys. The house was huge. We really loved the how people could be working in the kitchen while others were hanging out in the great room or even sitting in the dining room.
Jenifer, the property manager was very responsive and helpful in answer questions before arriving. Like many other rental houses, there is a good smattering of dishes, utensils and cooking necessities, however, if you're going to be cooking a lot always best to bring your own stuff (next time I'd bring a good frying pan, more paper towels, aluminium foil, plastic wrap, a sharp knife, etc.). There's tons of fridge and storage space and we barely even used the entire basement!
Bring your s'mores fixings as there's a great fire-pit right which was nicely set up for us upon arrival.
Great house and we hope to be back again.
