  • Perfect retreat

    "We were so impressed with the attention to detail and the evident thought and care that has gone into making this house a home. Our family of four (including a two and five year old) had such a relaxing, perfect get away! We're spent most of our time enjoying the outdoors, sitting out on the porch playing board games, watching for bunnies at dusk, reading in the hammock, and even making s'mores in the fire pit under the stars. Or five year old spent loved the tire swing! The kitchen was also a wonderful surprise - very well stocked with utinsels and cookware and we cooked almost every meal as we could not resist the local farm fresh produce. The kids were so happy with the toys and I must have read every book in their bookcase. Such a wonderful home! Thank you for sharing!"

  • Perfect cottage in the woods

    "My friend and I traveled to Rhinebeck for the Dutchess County Sheep and Wool Festival in October, and everything about my experience with Dan and this cottage were top notch. We were traveling from Canada, and at every step of the way, Dan was patient and thoughtful in helping us plan our accommodations. All of our emails backs and forth were detailed and timely, and I appreciated Dan's patience and understanding with arranging payment from another country. In the days leading up to the trip, Dan sent me detailed directions to the cottage, which were incredibly helpful in navigating the local highways and winding country roads. When we arrived at the cottage after a long day of driving, Dan was right there to meet us, and he walked us through every feature of the cottage. It was fantastic, and especially appreciated the fireplace in the living room (we used it both nights we were there!). The cottage includes a small kitchen, which was perfect for putting together our own breakfasts each morning. Dan left coffee, a bottle of milk, and muffins for us in the kitchen, which was a sweet touch. Having a car with us with necessary, as the cottage is about an 8 minute drive from downtown Rhinebeck, but it was a short trip to go and find a meal or explore the town. Dan's restaurant suggestions were right on, we really enjoyed the Thai food place he recommended. The cottage includes WiFi and satellite TV, and it couldn't be a more perfect location. You can sit out on the covered porch and enjoy your coffee while you look out over the trees and the mountains in the distance. Every bit as good as the pictures, and most deserving of a 5-star review rating - highly recommended!"

  • Girl's Weekend!!

    "This is our second stay at Stone House (actually 3rd for one of us!) The house is wonderful and the gardens, spectacular! Gina is so welcoming! She even gave us produce from her garden for our dinner! Home is clean and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking. Plenty to do in the area! This time we rode bikes on the Walkway Over the Hudson and continued on the rail trail towards Poughkeepsie. Also visited one of the local wineries and shopped downtown. Dinner at the Egg's Nest Restaurant in nearby High Falls, was an experience not to be missed, especially if you grew up in the 60's! And the food was great! So much to do, so little time!!"

  • 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"
