We loved it here! Such a comfortable house in a very convenient location for skiing. We had a group of 8 people, and there was plenty of space and bed configurations for everyone, and having 3 bathrooms was awesome for our group. The living room had very comfy couches for hanging out, and a nice TV. The basement area also has a nice size area with couches for hanging out, so there was plenty of space for everyone even if we wanted to do different things. Wifi worked great.
Ruth gave very clear instructions for how to get to the house, and was available if we needed anything. The winding hilly road by the lodge was a bit creepy the first night, but all our cars made it up without a problem. But it's something to consider if there is a chance or snow/ice while driving up there.
- We loved that there were thermostats for every room, because everyone has different temperature preferences, and every room could be set to a different temperature.
- We loved the sauna in the house - great way to relax after a day of skiing!
- We loved being less than 15 mins from the Skyship and Bear Mountain lodges at Killington, so it was very convenient. There are no restaurants in the immediate area, but the lodge is very close to a bunch of restaurants by Killington.
- We loved being able to do a load of laundry in between ski days.
Would definitely stay here again!
Ruth did a great job of making her home feel like...home. She even left us some bananas and chocolate. The house is a beautiful home that feels like a hollywood set of the 1970s. Close to the Catskills, Woodstock and New Paltz! We'd stay again any time.
Ruth was a great host making the entire process very smooth. Her instructions at the house were very comprehensive and made running the various appliances very easy. The house is conveniently located to the skiing areas and accommodates a good size crew easily. Would certainly recommend this house.
I spent a weekend in this home with three friends to shoot a small film project. Even in the middle of winter, the area is remarkable and the house itself is incredibly unique. Architecturally, it feels one of a kind, and Ruth has evidently put in great effort to make it the ideal home away from home. She provides a bounty of information on the inner workings of the home and on the broader area. We could immediately settle in and begin moving around. bedrooms are all generously sized (especially the master) and the living area feels open and breezy, a perfect balance of public and private space.
The house is a short car-ride away from many great views and places to explore, but feels perfectly private, especially in this rear wing.
I'd love to come back for an actual vacation, and would absolutely recommend to friends.
We loved Ruth's home. It is great for large groups and has basically everything you would need. The road getting up there is very windy and can be a problem for some cars so be sure to bring one with good tire treads. Enjoyed the house for a fun ski weekend. Highly recommend!
Everything was perfect!
The house was a perfect work getaway on an icy snowy weekend. Very comfortable and unique and crafty interior on a lovely piece of property. Ruth was more than accommodating for a flexible weekend with four guests and even brought us snow shoes for a little adventure : ) Highly recommended. Hope to see it on a warmer weekend in the near future.
Ruth was a fantastic host. She was very communicative prior to our trip and waited for us to arrive in inclement weather. She even made sure the house was warm for us on a frigid winter weekend.
The house itself is cozy with fantastic views from the bed. The kitchen is very well stocked with cookware and plenty of pantry supplies.
Would definitely suggest Ruth as a host and this location.
From the very beginning of the rental search until the day I left, I had a terrific experience with Ruth. I stayed at this house during one of the coldest days in February (too cold to do much outside), and my entire family still enjoyed the beautiful house and scenery in comfort and warmth. Ruth corresponded with me many times to answer questions about local attractions and tips about using the resort facilities, too. I felt like I was staying at a very generous friend's house.
I'd happily stay here again and will recommend it to anyone who'd like a respite from the crowded resorts of nearby Ludlow or Killington. This vacation was a great one, and it was largely because of Ruth's hospitality and her lovely, well-equipped and equally welcoming house.
Thank you, Ruth!
Everything was perfect. I appreciate the diligence to make sure everything was good even while Ruth was traveling herself. My family had a great time and we are already thinking about next year.
Ruth and her family were all very nice. I would welcome them back at any time to stay at our property .
Absolute perfect guests! Awesome people. We would host them anytime!
Ruth and her husband Joel are airbnb hosts, so it's was especially special to host them! Very considerate and easy to be with and just to have around. I wish they could've had a little longer to enjoy the area, and get to know each other better.
Thanks Amy, We would stay again for sure. Wish we were back - it is still cold here in New York (though some crocuses are starting to bloom). All the best to you!
Ruth communicated well regarding her plans & was very respectful of house rules! She left the place super clean. I would have her back as a guest any time! :)
Ruth was an excellent guest! She was pleasant and left our space perfect. We would love yo have her back.
It was our pleasure to host Ruth and her husband Joel, who are warm, clean, and very friendly. They stayed with us for two nights and were the best guests we could ever have. They arrived on schedule, great in communication, and Ruth even helped me took off the sheets. We shared great conversations over breakfast. I hope they enjoyed their stay and found Kingston, Ontario a fun place to visit.
Ruth and her husband were only with us for one night but were very gracious guests, outgoing and warm. No issues at all. Welcome any time. Ruth even stripped the bed, replaced the spread, and put the dirty sheets in a pillow case. Pure class.
Ruth was a pleasure to host! We booked the night before she came and the whole process was seamless. Ruth and her husband left the apartment in immaculate condition and even left us some beautiful daffodils, which brightened up the apartment! I did not get to meet Ruth, but I would definitely recommend hosting her : )
It was a pleasure hosting Ruth and her husband Joel. They were very fun to talk to and get to know. As guests, they were friendly, easy, communicative, respectful, neat, clean, and quiet. Highly recommended as guests! Plus, Ruth brought us some yummy dog food for our dog - homemade by her talented grown daughter. Ruth and Joel are lovely people and a lot of fun to get to know. We hope they return and stay with us again!
Ruth and her husband, Joel, were great guests. They arrived on schedule, appreciated the accommodations and we had a great visit over breakfast, like old friends. They even made their bed before leaving, which was totally unnecessary. I highly recommend them as guests.
As Ruth's daughter's business partner, I have had the opportunity to get to know Ruth quite well over the years. I can confidently say that I have NO reservations vouching for her as a friendly, funny, honest, conscientious, and helpful person and hostess. I have stayed at Olivebridge a few times and really enjoy the comfy house and bed, as well as the lovely grounds. It's just the kind of wooded wonderland you dream about when you crave getting away from it all and spending some relaxing (or active) time in nature... taking long walks around the property, curling up on the couch with a good book, having a glass of wine or cup of tea on the deck, or cooking up a delicious meal with fresh ingredients from a nearby farmer's market. I also love venturing out to the nearby Country Inn of Krumville, with its great beer selection, local, organic food, and outdoor seating/firepit. As you plan and enjoy your stay, you can feel good relying on Ruth's vast knowledge of the area to steer you in the right direction. Highly recommended hostess and property!
I've known Ruth for five or so years -- she is truly an incredible woman and hostess. She's got a sharp wit and humor that makes me laugh and was both very generous and "on it" when I stayed with her. Her cozy place at Olivebridge is in quite a beatific place - we took some great bike rides and walks. Also some cool sites just a short drive away. I highly recommend going here if you want to take a break from NYC or wherever you are!
