Nothing short of an amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year I have stayed in this house and my stay was absolutely perfect. The house has just about anything that you would need and it was very clean. The house fit everyone comfortably and everyone had a great time. We spent most of our time either playing pool or outside just lounging on the spacious deck. I would hands down recommend this house to anyone looking to go up to hunter mountain. You will not be disappointed. Not to mention that the owners are great and will make sure your stay exceeds your expectations.

Large yet Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Our group was made up of 5 families (10 adults and 6 kids), and the house was a perfect set-up for us. We each had our own rooms, with enough space for pack-n-plays or blow-up beds for the kids in each of the parents bedrooms. The kitchen was ideal for all families to serve our kids' meals and ourselves. We spent most of our time in the cozy family room and the bar/pool table are. We were able to put the kids to sleep safely upstairs and the adults could hang-out downstairs without waking the kids.

We also really enjoyed the area, we spent time in Phoenicia playing at a park in the snow, going out to eat at Brio's (very kid-friendly), and shopping at the little shops. We took a trip to Woodstock and also took the kids snow-tubing at Hunter Mountain, which was a blast!

Thank you Lorry and Rich, you both made our stay very easy, lovely and memorable. Lorry, the planning was seamless and the hospitality shown by Rich was top notch. Rich sent us all home with a buffet tray of his homemade meatballs and macaroni, it was delicious!

Great Place, Great People

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this home two years in a row now and I hope to rent it every year! The owners are so fantastic to deal with and make us feel very welcome. The home is absolutely beautiful, well kept and very cozy. There is a ton of space for a group with a pool table, bar and commercial kitchen. This was such a great find!

Roomy, but cozy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the house this past weekend with 9 other friends, 11 of us total. We found the home to be very comfortable, warm and relaxing. The kitchen is large and easy to work in and plenty of room for us to eat together and enjoy each other's company. The location to Hunter was great for our skiers/snowboarders. The pool table was great fun for "pool tournaments" and we were very comfortable in the large living room. What's unique about the house is that although the downstairs is very large, the seating is comfortably arranged so that you still feel like you are all together, but spread out at the same time. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are a good size. It's true the house needs some work, it is a restoration project in the works. But the bathrooms are clean and convenient, the kitchen is large, the front porch is welcoming. If you are looking for something very new or perfectly put together, this may not be the house for you. But if you are looking for comfortable, warm and cozy accommodations to eat, drink and spend time with good friends, this house is a very good choice.

Perfect house for New Year's Eve

  • 5 of 5

I planned a trip for a group of eleven, including myself, to visit Hunter Mt for a NYE ski weekend. For New Years Eve, this house is perfect! It's a very large house with plenty space for the whole group. The living room area is charming and cozy. The bar area has plenty of table space and a pool table. It's really an ideal place for a party. Although the weather was too warm to ski, there was still plenty to do in and around the house. We're a group of avid cooks so we absolutely loved the commercial style kitchen. We had everything we needed to cook. The owners leave fun things around the house like magazines and a box of instruments. Three of the guys brought their own guitars so we all had a blast jumping in with tambourines. We hooked up our chomecast to the TV and played music throughout the house. Pretty anything we needed was right at the house. Rich, one of the owners, was only a stone throw away so he was available whenever we needed him. Overall, it was a great stay and we all left very happy. Thanks Rich and Lorry!

We were shocked at the condition of this property ...the listing description is totally inaccurate. The house was DIRTY..we could not see out the windows thru the layer of filth. There were paint cans and wires hanging from the ceiling in the entry. In the yard were rusting objects and what looked to be old machinery. We did not see the 'babbling' stream in the description or the acres of land to roam on. There was no a/c in the bedrooms upstairs and some of the screens were torn so bugs became an issue along with the 90degree weather. The only good thing about this property is its location in the Hudson valley. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone.

Owner's Response: We plan to look into every item on this complaint list and are grateful for this guest's suggestions and opinions . They came to us the day after a major storm and things were difficult to say the least. Usually, there is no need for any sort of air conditioning as the nights get so sold you actually need to use the sparkling, clean comforters that are supplied. Upon reviewing and researching ALL PAST REVIEWS ,( and , I recommend you do this) it is obvious that these guests were expecting something totally different , perhaps a city hotel, not a country landmark 1800's farmhouse! Some OCD issues can never be left behind, not even on a vacation , very sad . That said, I thank these guests for helping us correct small issues and to help us become even more aware and more special FOR YOUR UPCOMING STAY, WITH U.S., thank you , namaste, grazie, we are grateful to YOU!
