  • Herb and Chris are the best! The house was cozy and suited the group very well. Loved the great light and birds just outside the kitchen window. Herb was extremely helpful and have fantastic recommendations for things to do, sights to see...
    We will definitely come back for future visits.

  • This was my first AirbNb experience and it could not have been more delightful. I stayed over New Year's eve and New Year's day and it was a cozy winter retreat and a perfect way to start the year. The ease of the experience began as soon as I made my reservation with Herb's quick, attentive and proactive communication, his flexibility, helpfulness and thoughtfulness in the weeks leading up to my stay. I had all the information necessary to plan my visit. And then the house itself is warm, charming, completely stocked with just about anything you could need for a short or extended stay. And the location, across the street from the Ashokan Center, is a wooded retreat perfect for getting away and reconnecting with nature without giving up any of the amenities of home. It's a wonderful haven in the woods and my sister, brother in law, and nephew had far more than enough space to spend time together or come and go as we wished.

    In short, I loved it and can't wait to go back.

  • We had a wonderful weekend in the house. It's in the heart of Catskills but even if the weather was terrible, we would have had a great time in this bright and cozy home, furnished with a great taste. I can't remember the last time I could cook in such a well-equipped kitchen.

  • Lovely spacious house, beautiful surroundings, perfect weekend getaway. We especially enjoyed the well appointed kitchen as we did lots of cooking, and the lovely porch with a swing and garden surrounding us. Thanks Herb and Chris!

  • This was our first experience with AirBnB. Great service.

    Also, and more importantly, Herb's house was a wonderful place to stay. Great kitchen for cooking, beautiful yard, just the right place for a nice weekend escape.

  • Herb and Chris's house was amazing. It had everything we needed! The house was beautiful, cozy, and in a great location. Herb went out of his way to be helpful, even trying to find us a local babysitter. We definitely hope to go back!

  • Our group of friends had a great stay at Herb's house for a summer weekend. Really (email hidden) in the kitchen and hanging out on the patio. We found the location ideal for moving about the area and there were some great pointers on trails, parks, etc in the area. Look forward to another trip in the near future and highly recommend this house!

  • Great little house with loads of charm and comfort. Herb and Chris responded right away to our inquiries and gave us great advice and instructions on the house, surrounding area etc...My husband and I came with a baby and 2 friends and felt right at home. If you are looking for a cozy getaway I definitely recommend this spot...
