  • Gorgeous comfortable home in amazing setting

    "We spent a splendid week at this home. The location is really perfect. It is a nice short walk into the center of town but you are far enough away that you are completely out of the hustle bustle and nestled in the woods. The back of the house faces a beautiful meadow where we watched the deer frolic and many different sorts of birds swooping and feeding and nesting. It was serene and lovely. The patio is sunny and a great warm spot for breakfast and general lounging. There is also a large screened in gazebo with a hammock and picnic table - perfect for dinner after grilling on the bbq. Inside is equally as wonderful. The "dome" room is a large, very comfortable and cool room with a big open kitchen that is very well stocked with everything you need for home cooking. You definitely don't feel like you are in a rental home with just the bare minimum for cooking - we love to cook and were very happy with the kitchen supplies. In the living room area there is a big cozy sofa for reading, relaxing or watching a movie on the wall projector TV. The house comes with a great selection of movies and we watched a few on the projector - which was fun. The extension on the dome is really fantastic - the back wall of the house is essentially all glass looking out to the meadow. The upstairs bedroom has nearly floor to ceiling windows (bring your eye mask for sleeping in) and is huge, airy and gorgeous. The bathroom/shower/dressing area design was amazing and very thoughtful -- the shower is huge! The downstairs bedrooms are very comfortable also, and open to the meadow side of the house. I recommend this house highly for a couple or a family or friends get a way. It was a real treat to stay there. Also -- very close by is a bike rental shop - we rented bikes one day and rode from the house out and around the Ashokan reservoir, that was really fun and we saw bald eagles flying over the reservoir, which was a treat. We also saw a bear -- which was a little scary but also cool! There is a lot of great hiking in the area -- and a really nice run/walk in the woods from the house in the Commeau Property -- just across Tinker St. Finally, Kim was a very professional and helpful property manager. I'll also add that if you have a dog and happen to be in need of "doggie-daycare" while you are there -- Camp Belly Rub in nearby Kingston was A+++ and I highly recommend them as well. Thank you very much!"

  • Wonderful Vacation Home!

    "The arts and crafts bungalow in New Paltz was great. It was large and well equipped with everything you would need in a home. The owner, Kim, was so helpful, and responded immediately to all of my questions. The front porch is a great place to sit and relax; barbeque on the back patio; and enjoy the large, peaceful yard. We had a great time exploring the neighboring towns but it was nice to have this quaint retreat to come home to!"

  • Rental for a Three Day Weekend

    "I found that the house was a fairly good fit for the group of about 12 that I had for three nights and three days. The kitchen island was good for serving the group, and the hot tub was certainly popular. We were also not overly concerned with noise or privacy due to the secluded nature of the house being on a hill, so that was a bonus. The owners were friendly, and provided plenty of linens and such up front for us to utilize. On one night, a few of us found a bowling alley to try about 15 minutes away. My only really poignant recalling is that their is somewhat of a lack of seating for a large group all in one place at one time. We could seat about 8 to 9 individuals in the living room with the large television, but that was with the stools from the close-by kitchen island. We brought in other furniture such as a bench from the adjoining room, but it was still the slightest bit awkward. All in all, there is enough room for a sizable group to get together, but staying together in the same area is probably not the most comfortable."

  • The Happy Home could not be a more appropriate name

    "A group of us (girlfriends) stayed at The Happy Home for 5 days and wish it could have been longer. The house was amazing. There are several really comfortable large areas (the kitchen, the great room and library) where we comfortably could all spread out and relax. The house is also so large that there's always areas to enjoy some privacy too. The decor is also beautiful - with all sorts of amazing pieces of art - and it makes it feel like a home (not a rental property). The kitchen is a dream with amazing appliances and has a great seating area and it came supplied with all of the plates, pots, pans, utensils and even spices so it was really easy to pick up a few things and be able to cook entire meals. We loved not needing a car and were able to walk to town (great stores and restaurants) and to the Dutchess County Fairgrounds. The outside spaces at the house are stunning - we were there in the Fall and the trees were beautiful. The hardest part was deciding where to sit outside - there is a deck off the kitchen, another gazebo-like area off the library, chairs in the yard and a beautiful sitting area off the living room. The beds are comfortable and there were plenty of blankets and linens. There's even a laundry room if you need it. Also the wi-fi worked great as a few of us needed to check in for some work things. We'll definitely be back!"
