  • Very pleasant retreat lodgings. The house is located in the snowy woods on the top of a hill. Mornings were beautiful. For winter stays, I would recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle in case of snow to make it up the long driveway.

    Lisa was very responsive and provided helpful information about the house and the sights/events in the area.

  • Wonderful location. Near Poughkeepsie and New Paltz. Its the last house on the curved road, and you go more deep in to the house which provides so much peace and quiet. A little pond is a few steps away from the huge front yard.

    Entrance and first floor is under construction, but its not dangerous. Once you reach the house on the upper level, it is so nice and the wooden floors are kept well. No dishwasher. Everything is there for cooking. Good selection of spice rack. Heat is more than adequate. Patio is so romantic, with christmas lights for the nighttime.

  • My wife and I had a great little weekend getaway here. The hosts were very informative and helpful. They had left out lots of information about nearby restraunts and things to do. The outdoor deck let us relax in the beautiful woods overlooking the pond.

    I recommend staying here if you need a nice getaway from urban life - but don't want to go too far from civilization!

  • Nice place, nice location, hosts were great!!!

  • The house is on a charming plot of land with gorgeous trees, a small pond, and a windy driveway. It was the perfect place for a fall getaway. It's very wonderfully located next to some incredible farms and wineries. Lisa was very personable and paid attention to our questions.

Special Ed. Teacher
I currently live in NY and have most of my life except living in Fort Lauderdale a few years. I am a special ed. pre-k teacher but I don't have a typical school year like many other teachers do. My vacation is at the end of the summer (last 2 of Aug & about 2 weeks in Sept) so I usually like to do my traveling then. I am very particular about my surroundings and like suburban areas (mostly) unless I'm visiting a city and have no car. I am a neat, clean person (I know many people say this and aren't but I really am), and I have an Italian Greyhound who is adorable. He's usually sleeping while I'm at work and would probably do the same, unless he's out with me touring the city I'm in. He hardly barks (only when scared) and sleeps in his own little bed. When I am out, I leave his bed door open so he can go on the pee pee pad, until I can get home to take him out again. I really enjoy cooking and can't always eat restaurant food because I am so used to a home cooked meal my whole life that it is hard to eat out a lot.
