My friends and I spent a three-day weekend at Karyn's house in the woods. The house is so toasty, cozy, and bright that other than one grocery store run, we never left the house!
The house was the perfect size for five adults, with a beautiful kitchen and living room to loll about. The living room windows are huge so even on a foggy rainy weekend, the house is incredibly bright and full of natural light -- it's a wonderful place to relax and just be with friends. The house is also perfectly set up for guests -- sheets, towels, and things like dust pans were always in the first place we looked. Karen also gave us plenty of information about the house and the area, and all together and it gave us the chance to just unwind and be with friends.
And also, plenty of time to bake: when my friends holiday we love to cook and bake, so the kitchen in the house we rent is always very important to us. Karyn's kitchen is fully equipped and ready to go -- she even made sure there was a spare propane tank for the grill, so we were able to grill dinners in January!
We would love to visit Karyn's house again for a weekend or longer!
A group of 6 of us rented Karyn's home over a long extended 4th of July weekend. It was the perfect place for us to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
The home is nestled in the back of a quiet, remote street. You feel a lot of privacy in this home, as you cannot see or hear your neighbors. It made the entire weekend feel much more intimate and secluded, which our group of friends really appreciated.
The house has many windows and skylights throughout which was great. Even when we were spending time indoors, we were constantly aware of the fact that we were in the middle of the woods.
The home is well stocked with kitchen appliances, which was a wonderful surprise since we all love to cook. There is also a large outdoor grill, which we used on the 4th.
The overall layout of the house is fairly open, so if you want privacy, this house may not be the one for you-- however, we loved the open layout of the house and felt it added to the easy, relaxed tone of the weekend.
We spent time on all the decks (3 in all) and screened porch, enjoying the fresh air, wildlife, and lush woods.
The house has a great sound system that is hooked up in the main living room, kitchen, and outdoor patio, which was a great feature.
The house is a short drive to Woodstock, so if you are interested in having some time in Woodstock, this could be a nice option for a house away from the bustle of Woodstock but a close drive away.
Karyn was very responsive and the house is beautiful. The kitchen is amazing and had everything we could want - we cook a lot. The kitchen is also super spacious - big enough to set up two dog crates and still have plenty of room! The deck on the side of the house is great because it's fenced in - the everyone, including the dogs, really enjoyed hanging out there. It's very quiet but close enough to Woodstock, etc.
We stayed at Karyn’s Catskills retreat last week. The house is surrounded by wilderness. We saw deer outside the windows every day. It’s very secluded, in a nice and small densely wooded neighborhood. From the property, we hardly ever heard any noise from neighbors or cars passing and could not see any other houses.
The screened in porch was my favorite feature. It’s where we spent most of our time enjoying the clean-air breeze and the sounds of nature.
The house is very comfortably furnished and equipped, has spacious rooms, is attractively designed, and gets great sunlight from windows and skylights. The sauna was a very enjoyable bonus to this rental. We loved her large kitchen.
The area of the Catskills that the house is in is very beautiful. Hiking trails have gorgeous views, and the creeks are wonderful to cool off in. Just driving around exploring the small wooded neighborhoods in the region was a lot of fun.
Karyn was very friendly and helpful throughout the rental process. It was very easy to get settled in the house with the instructions she provided, and she was very responsive to our questions.
Karyn and her husband are the guests you wish you always had. It was a real pleasure to rent them the apartment. When they turned the keys back it was like they had never stayed in the apartment: it was as clean and organized as when I gave it to them. I hope to see them again. Thank you for the nice message you left me in the apartment!
Karyn was a guest of mine in Buenos Aires . I consider her truly reliable and honest. I would have no hesitation in recommending Karyn as, either a host or a tenant .She would be hospitable and generous as a host, and interested in making your stay as comfortable as possible.++++++ A
