  • close to Vassar, a nice place to stay with family


    The house is old and has some quirky-ness in the layout, but worked for our family visit for Vassar graduation, since we were able to rent both apt 1 and 2. There are some tenants living in the other parts of the house, so a bit odd, but there was enough parking with the circle driveway.

  • Not really a mansion! lol


    Great experience checking in and getting help during the stay. The layout of apt 1 is a little weird. You can only get to the bedroom through the bathroom. Little awkward if you've got to take care of "business." Upstairs guests were very loud at times sounded like they were building something.

    Kitchen was well stocked; bed was comfy. Futon sofa not the most comfy, but the leather chairs were VERY comfy.

  • I wanted to like it but...


    Okay. So the pictures are great, kinda like that selfie that you set up to show you in your best light at just the right angle. The reality was a once beautiful home, subdivided poorly into multiple apartments, with some atrocious DIY, decorated and appointed with second hand stuff and rapidly sliding into decay. In all, it reeked of despair.

    Manager's Response:

    Owner's response: "Christine, the right vacation home is everything, and we're disappointed if this wasn't the one for you.
    - Everyone is entitled to their opinion, I'm just very happy that the majority of our guests have enjoyed our home and appreciated the decor, location, cleanliness, spaciousness, and ambiance. We have over twenty, 4, and 5-star reviews who rave about all those items I just mentioned. We have been lucky to have people who want to venture outside their circle to see what our Victorian-style mansion has to offer. I'm sorry we didn't meet your standards

    We truly go above and beyond for our guests, and we are confident that future guests will have excellent stays! We will continue to deliver the 5-star experiences we are known for."

  • Nice stay near Vassar


    We were visiting our daughter at nearby Vassar College, and our stay was convenient and well supported. The space worked well for us, and communication was great. Thanks!
