Middletown, New York

The house is old but has the potential to be made charming

  • 4 of 5

The house itself rates 3 stars, but the location rates a 5. I loved they way it was close to town, but far enough away to feel private. The sunsets were fabulous. It is close to numerous hiking trails, including the Skyline. The yard was large enough that, even though the house is fairly close to the road, I was able to run my dog off leash behind the house so he could chase his ball. Would love for the owner to put in a new rug in living room, get some nice curtains. That alone would help the appearance. The kitchen was very well stocked! Flashlights available, etc. Owner has put a lot of thought into any little thing that might be needed. I will return because the house is reasonably priced and I actually came to like it!

Gute Lage, ungepflegte Unterkunft

  • 1 of 5

If you are a New York billionaire in search of a real life experience the house is probably a good option for you. You will find everything: very old appliances, an ugly interior put together without any care from what has been left over in tens of years, and dirt in every corner. Some examples from our top ten: Broken window fixed with scotch, dead flies as many as you want, worms and other inhabitants in the window frames, windows last time cleaned up at the American civil war, a very particular smell of the entire apartment, broken furniture, ...

Unfortunately, we are no New York billionaires, but rather simple tourists looking out for a nice place. It was by far the worst of the 8 places where we spend our nights while traveling the area.
