This house is great for wedding parties, graduations, New Years, and holiday get togethers. We ask for a $1000 refundable security deposit for large group parties and events. This deposit will be given back immediately upon check-out and walk through...at the latest 24 hours after check out. This is to ensure the care of our home during events. We understand the risks of hosting events and are extremely lenient.
We were in New Windsor for a wedding and decided to stay at the Guest House. Traveling from Austin, we don't really get the chance to enjoy being in the woods too often so we were excited! The home was a good size for the 7 of us: there was ample patio, dining, and living room space to hang out in.
We ran in to a couple of problems worth mentioning. There were a lot of stink bugs inside of the house (a few stink bugs hitched a ride back in one of our bags), a couple of wasps, and termites. Obviously you're in the woods so it's technically their home. However, if you are not a "bug person", the amount of bugs that were crawling around might give you anxiety. The other problem was a plumbing leak on the 1st floor from the 2nd floor bathroom, which happened immediately after we ran the shower. It dampened some of our clothes and splashed onto a laptop, which ended up being okay thankfully.
Overall, there were glitches but we weren't at the house much which made it bearable. If we were to have spent more time there, these issues might have felt a little more problematic. The house is obviously older and needs some TLC.
Kim was prompt in responding and super nice. The arrival and departure time were flexible which worked for us. We were offered a complimentary weekend for the troubles.
My friends and I had a really great and special time here for my 30th birthday. The house accommodated all 9 of us and was extremely close to Storm King Art Center as well as plenty of grocery store and other necessities. The hosts were very helpful and responsive though I didn't have the pleasure of meeting them. There was an awesome huskie who came and hung out with us on the porch, which we all really loved :)
All in all, the house was beautiful and it had everything we needed and more. A great experience.
We had a lovely time at Ivy Rock. Not being familiar with the area beforehand, they were very helpful and responsive with information to help us plan our trip. The house was just what we were looking for, a nice remote-feeling place not too far from the city. The layout was perfect for what we needed, and the deck and outdoor areas were great!
great house. host was very responsive to our needs. overall good experience
My friends and I had a wonderful stay at this cabin. The surrounding area is gorgeous, and the house is homey and has everything we needed. Plenty of space, great fireplace, big kitchen and dining room for group meals. So close to NYC and great hiking/scenery.
The house was just how it was described, even better. We had a great time with friends. The kitchen was fully equipped. The fireplace was working very good. There are two BBQs. We used the regular one and there was enough coal. In front of the house there is a big field, which we played soccer on it with friends. We went to the horse farm, 5 minutes by walking, to ride horses, but it was fully booked, you need to make a reservation from before. I definitely recommend this place.
The Ivy rock house is huge! Very nice and secluded wooded area with well kept grounds. It was a great spot to spend a weekend with friends to get out of the city. The host was flexible and accommodating and made the trip very easy. Highly recommended.
