  • Wendy is fantastic and has thought of everything! Great house for groups!

    "Every summer I rent a house for a long weekend with a group of family and friends. Wendy's house has been our best experience yet! The house has everything you can think of, even things that I hadn't thought about before the trip, like a cooler and board games. There are pleasant surprises everywhere - the garage had a ping pong table that we didn't know about! The kitchen / living room area is great for assembling a group, as is the beautiful porch area. The bedrooms are comfortable, and the master bedroom/bath especially is wonderful. The shower is great! The backyard is probably the highlight of the property. It's large and has a gas grill that Wendy provides a tank for, a firepit, and a hot tub. There was one disappointment, which I quickly got over - In the photos, the house looked to me like nobody had ever stepped foot in it before, but it's actually more lived in than that. That doesn't mean that the house is run down - it's in very good shape - but there are a couple areas where, for example, paint has chipped off the walls. It didn't interfere with our trip at all. I doubt the house would have been so well-stocked if it hadn't been enjoyed by Wendy's family Wendy is the best! She responds within minutes to all questions and was consistently reasonable and flexible. For example, we were able to check in early and stay late. She also gives you complete privacy - she isn't in town but provides a phone number for a handyman whom I assume can help you out if you have any issue with the house, which we didn't The location is great too. Under 2 hours driving to NYC. Several people took the Amtrak to Rhinebeck, which is about a 25 minute drive from the house. The surrounding area is beautiful and peaceful Some tips for future travelers -There's wifi and a landline at the house but cell service is very spotty in the area. If you're going to go driving in e.g. to pick someone up from the train station, plug it into Google maps before you leave the house, while you still have wifi -As Wendy will note to you, the hot tub truly does take a long time to heat up. Turn it up at least a couple hours early -Cover the hot tub when it's not in use. Wendy will also tell you to do this, and we did our best, but we still ended up gathering a fair amount of leaves and outdoor debris in the tub, which made it somewhat less appetizing after the first night 10/10! Everyone in the group commented on how great the house was. We'd love to go back"

  • Fantastic house

    "Homeowner was great to work with, she communicated with us every step of the way. The house is great for a group looking to get away and enjoy the relaxing mountain air. You won't want to leave the house, but checking out the town of Woodstock is worth it. Horse shoe pits and fire pit got a lot of use, the volleyball court was perfect for bocce as well. The house is well taken care of and is just what you are looking for from a weekend retreat."

  • Perfect

    "My husband and I and two other couples stayed at this lovely Victorian house two weekends ago. We were visiting saratoga for a Dave Matthews concert at spac and were booked into a hotel that was too far out of town. We decided last minute to try vrbo. I got in touch with the owner Joanne who was nice as can be and responded very quickly to my email. The house was immaculate and very comfortable for 6 people and can hold at least two more couples. We each had our own bathroom and beds were very comfortable! Even though the owner told me she would be in Sweden during our stay she contacted me two or three times and responded promptly to my many silly questions! The house is a short walk to the middle of town which made it extremely easy to go out our second night and not have to worry about driving. I would absolutely stay there again and highly recommend it as an alternative to staying in a hotel!"
