Comfortable, well equipped house with a gorgeous mountain view

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week during thanksgiving week and really enjoyed ourselves. The house was in great shape with all the amenities required - comfortable beds, large well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer in the basement and tvs with direct tv and internet on all levels. Having alexa play music for us on demand was a nice bonus :) The three highlights of our stay were 1. gorgeous mountain view from the living room window and from the deck which stretches the length of the house. This was a joy to look at every day. 2. Wood pellet stove - heating the house with a wood burning stove provided more than enough heat throughout the day and also made it really cozy in the evenings to sit around occasionally staring at the fire. 3. Owner of the house Giancarlo was very responsive and helpful - instructions on checking in and out were very clear and he made himself available via phone and text when I had questions. We felt very comfortable dealing with him even though we haven't met in person. Restaurants and other activities are about 15/20 min drive away - this was fine for us since the point was to get away and stay secluded for the most part. We didn't mind the drive the two times that we've made it. Overall it was a great experience and we look forward to coming back some day!

Absolutely beautiful house with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented houses in the Hudson Valley many times over many years, and I can say, without a single doubt, that this was the most beautiful, clean, well-situated property that we have ever stayed at.

The screened porch is wonderful as are the many decks that surround the house. There is a washer/dryer which is a godsend after a day of hiking. The house is perfectly located in terms of being able to drive to beautiful nature areas.

The interior of the house is gorgeous. No problem, on a rainy day, to just relax and enjoy the beautiful view out the living room window or enjoy the beautiful art work which is scattered throughout the house.

Not a single amenity is lacking. No worries. Perfect vacation.

Giancarlo is quickly responsive to any questions or concerns. In general, he is a beautiful person who happens to own a beautiful house which he allows others to enjoy.

Thank you, Giancarlo. Our stay at your house is knit into our memories. We hope to return in the spring, if possible. It was a marvelous vacation, thanks to you.

Comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for a couple of days, looking for some rest and relaxation, and that's what we got. The house is beautiful and very inviting and cozy. It is clean and it looks like it is being updated. It has everything you could possibly need in terms of dishes, utensils, some essential condiments and such. Nice comfy beds, linens and towels were provided.

We were not able to get the wood pellet stove to start, but, to be honest, we did not really try as it was not cold enough. The house is on the state park property, so no fire pit - which was somewhat a disappointment to us, but I should have asked before I booked, so that's on me.

There were brochures on things to do in the area, which was nice to have. If you go, you must see Opus40 - it is only a few minutes away and it is remarkable.

The owner is super responsive and very nice. I received answers to my questions almost immediately.

Peaceful Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly as described; elegant home in a peaceful location. It was the perfect spot for our family to gather. Transportation in proximity to the home; Stewart International Airport is only about an hour drive and Kingston bus station is about a half hour drive. Having never been to the area before, the GPS in my rental car was a blessing as we toured through all the quaint little towns. Leisurely shopping in all the quaint little shops was fun. Dining out... the Phoenicia Diner has wonderful breakfast items, slight wait for a table, but worth it. Had an exceptional dinner at the Diamond Mill Tavern in Saugerties. All in all... hope to have the opportunity to go back. I would definitely stay at this home again.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in a quiet wooded area just few minutes drive away from Woodstock and Saugerties. The two levels provided a lot of room for the 6 of us. Bedrooms are a nice size, beds are very comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked and appliances are top notch. Porches are very nice, although it does get buggy during the day. We enjoyed the screened porch and had our meals "al fresco". Giancarlo was prompt in replying to any questions. Would definitely recommend this property if you are staying in the area.

A wonderful house for a quiet weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Giancarlo's house just a few days in advance but the booking process was very smooth and Giancarlo was very helpful. We truly enjoyed our stay. We did a combination of eating out (Red Onion, just an 8-minute drive away, was our favorite!) and cooking in, including on the fantastic gas grill on the deck. It does get buggy so the screened in deck was essential. We loved the layout of the house, with the high ceiling and mezzanine that led to the bedrooms. It gave the feeling of a lot of space but that we were spending time together even if we were in different parts of the house. We would definitely book this house again if we come back to Woodstock!
