I am a writer, my husband is retired. We love theatre and we love Smallwood! My new hobby is gardening, back breaking but oh oh, so rewarding.

I stayed in the Cottage during the first ever Mysteryland USA on the grounds of Woodstock '69. It was the perfect silent and peaceful haven to come home to after spending the days working at the festival. Ann and her husband gave me a warm welcome and everything was clean, spacious and easy. Glad I booked an extra day to enjoy reading a book lying in the tall grass by the lake enjoying glorious sunshine and birdsong. Utter bliss.
In the area I can recommend Java Love for organic food and perfect coffees and across the road delicious pulled pork at Bubba's BBQ.
We had a terrific time. The cottage is very sweet, nicely furnished and very comfortable. Neighbors are close by which we liked but it was also very quiet and peaceful. No traffic. Perfect escape. All the essentials were provided, towels, blankets, linens, etc. Well stocked kitchen if you feel like cooking. We enjoyed the fireplace in the cooler evenings with a glass of wine. During the day, walking to the lake, local antiquing and some great restaurants at Kauneonga Lake. Our hosts were easy to communicate with and responsive to any questions and requests. We loved our stay.
This is a great apartment! Plenty of space, well appointed, and very comfortable for our weeklong stay. Walking distance to many attractions, and metro access just across the street.
Ann is a wonderful hostess, and met us on arrival to show us around the apartment and building. She made us feel so welcome, even when we were several hours late due to a flight delay. I can't imagine a better value for the money in NYC, and would love to stay here again on a future visit!
I stayed here six nights with my mother. Apartment was cosy, homelike, just beautiful. Bed was comfortable and nearby streets were quiet. Ann and her husband were nice and helpful and it was easy to contact them. We also got great tips about neighborhood restaurants and markets. Location is perfect: there's subway just around the corner. Neighborhood is safe and there's lots of local people, not just tourists.
Next time at NY I hope I can stay here again!
Recomendamos fortemente o apartamento de Ann Mac. Muito bem localizado, ao lado do metrô Columbus Circle e na rua em frente ao Central Park. Fomos facilmente a pé a diversos pontos turísticos e a muitos outros de metrô. Ele é exatamente como nas fotos, estilo antigo (como a maioria em NYC), extremamente limpo e confortável. Anfitriões muito queridos e corretos. Quando voltar a NYC, irei novamente me hospedar nesse apartamento.
Ann was a wonderful, conscious host. The cabin was cozy, clean, and well-suited to our needs. Communication with Ann was prompt and courteous, and the area in which the cabin is located is a nice jumping-off point for exploring the Catskills region. The area was a bit difficult to navigate, but once familiar, we found that there were cultural activities, lovely walking trails, and great restaurants in close proximity. Bethel Woods, the restaurants on Kauneonga Lake, and Toronto Reservoir are particular highlights. We were very happy with our stay in Ann's cabin, and highly recommend it!
We spent one week in this apartment.
It was a perfect base for our New York City trip, very well located ... a fantastic location.
The apartment was very convenient, quite and very clean.
The neighbourhood is safe and very well placed for further exploration with the subway right outside the building,
heaps of great places to see within walking distance and plenty of cabs day and night.
Ann was very easy-going, nice, kind etc.. thx again.
Would definitely stay there again.
This little house is so adorable. It's extremely clean, well-maintained, and charming in every way. The kitchen is unusually large and well-stocked. We took daily walks through the tall forests to the lake and pond. We stayed here in summer, but I would love to visit in the winter and enjoy a fire in the gorgeous fireplace.
There is a well and the water has been tested as safe to drink, but we used bottled water to drink and cook with.
The owner of the cabin has filled her home and its grounds with delightful touches. It was lovely to fall asleep to the sounds of the stream in the yard and wake to birdsong. No traffic whatsoever. In a month, I probably heard four cars pass by.
If you are a writer, this cottage makes a great retreat. There's even a little bedroom set up with a desk and shelving.
My husband loved being so close to the Bethel Arts Center, the historical site for 1969 Woodstock concert. It's only four miles down the road!
Absolut empfehlenswert !
Die Pluspunkte : Zentrale und doch ruhige Lage - es ist alles, was man für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt braucht, vorhanden - das Apartment hat Stil und Charme - Ann Mac ist eine vorzügliche Vermieterin und sehr charmant !
Die Minuspunkte : auch nach langer Überlegung ist mir nichts eingefallen !
Fazit : Wenn mal wieder New York angesagt ist und Ann Mac uns ihr Apartment wieder vermietet, dann nur dort !
It was a pleasure for my parents to stay at Ann's apartment and they really enjoyed the stay. Ann and her husband warmly greeted us and the studio was spacious and well-decorated. They also made detailed preparation for our stay, which made us feel like home. I highly recommend this apartment to all potential guests!
I've known Ann Mac for nearly 20 years. She is a warm and gracious host, and they have a lovely space in the midst of Midtown Manhattan. I have spent many a fine evening with them cooking, watching movies and engaged in conversation. Ann is also conscientious and responsible. I would highly recommend both of their rental spaces, to travelers who want to be in the thick of Manhattan as well as people who want to get away from the city.
