We had a wonderful stay. House is brand new, super clean and bright. We loved the access to bikes, plus tennis, pool, and the lake. Will definitely return!

Had such a fun relaxing time staying here. Zach was quick to respond to all my questions and was easy to deal with. The house is very comfortable and spending the cool summer nights on the deck was very refreshing. Exploring the northern Hudson valley was easy from this house and there’s so much to do all around Definitely recommend!
The natural aroma of the fresh air drifts into the bedrooms and makes you dream of simpler times. Any walk in these mountains or kayak trip to the lake will tug at your heartstrings. Table-making never seemed so possible. You will never want to leave your room. The architecture reminds one of a quaint Tuscan beet farm I once stayed at in PA.
A great weekend getaway. House was beautiful and the area was peaceful. Just what we needed.
Such a cute and cozy getaway! The house has everything you need and is super clean. The views from the house are incredible.
