Idyllic, quiet retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I loved our stay at Mitaswell. It is a very special house, with gorgeous views and in close proximity to everything you'd need. Alan was extremely helpful and responsive with any concerns we had, which, frankly, were few. The house is beautifully maintained, and we enjoyed taking advantage of the pool and tennis court, though mostly we just relaxed on the deck and took in the views of the valley and the Catskills in the distance.

Great view, Great location

The house was great for our family and had enough room to invite another family. The view is incredible. Alan was very easy to work with and made sure we were welcomed and attentive to our needs. Highly recommend.

Exceptional find!

Lovingly cared for home with beautiful mountain vistas. Very peaceful and tranquil setting but still near many great outdoor activities. Awesome pool surrounded by beautiful flowers and trees. Tennis court was a real plus for the kids. Great hiking and biking nearby. We will be coming back!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect summer getaway for our family. The house was spacious, yet cozy and comfortably accommodated three couples and an infant. Each couple had their own room and bathroom, and enough privacy (even the one in the loft space). The living space was great, kitchen had everything we needed and the pool was clean, well-maintained and perfect for the sunny days. We spent almost every meal on the large deck, dining outdoors and grilling. The view from this house, located atop a hill, was fantastic. You could see for miles across farmlands towards the mountains. The location of the house was also great. It felt secluded and private. It was a short or moderate drive to cute towns like Hudson and Great Barrington, farms/farmers markets, grocery stores, shops, hikes, etc. Also, it was just under a three hour drive from NYC. Alan was a lovely host, checking in with us periodically to ensure we had everything we needed and that we were enjoying our vacation. Our family could not have asked for a better experience for our summer getaway, and we will certainly be returning again!
