James' Country Retreat Compound was even better than expected. We went for a girls weekend and all four of us were completely happy. The Jacuzzi was so nice in the cold weather. The kitchen was well-equipped and the fireplace was amazing. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the house itself is very warm and welcoming with a lot of good spaces to hang out and catch up. The location couldn't have been better either, close to shops, good restaurants and, of course, tons of beautiful scenery. James as a host was always quick to respond and made us feel very welcome from the moment we made the reservation. We would all love to come back and enjoy the property with the pool in the summer. All in all we had a great time, in a nice space, provided by a very nice host.
The house was nice and had everything we needed. Jim was very responsive and helpful. The only issue we had was with the heat. Unfortunately, we were there during extremely cold weather and the heat in the house just couldn't keep up, even with a raging fire. The house didn't get above 60 degrees until the day we left when the outside temp reached 20.
Country Compound Retreat was absolutely the perfect place to get away for a long holiday weekend this February. James was communicative, accommodating and a wonderful host that made the entire process easy! The home is absolutely wonderful, we used the fireplace at night, there are huge picture windows to the surrounding property and the home has all the appointed items needed for a weekend away. We will be back in the summer and look forward to using the pool!
James's place really is a retreat -- it's tucked away from any major roads and other properties. It was perfect for two couples, as we were -- the second bedroom even has its own private bathroom. The house is really nice, even nicer than the pictures here suggest. The pool must be fabulous in warmer weather; we can't wait to come back for a dip! And James was extremely responsive to any queries we had. I highly recommend!
We had a fantastic ski getaway this past weekend! Such a rustic and comfortable setting and James was so accommodating. The house is gorgeous and has everything you need. Thank you for such a memorable stay!!!
The house was perfect for what we were looking for - everything was easy to find and especially the kitchen was well-stocked with equipment for all meals. We really enjoyed the stay and talked about coming back. All in all, great host and house. Hot tub was certainly the best feature!
The house is even better than the photos can show. It's spacious, clean, comfortable, warm, and has everything you need for a comfy stay. It has the biggest window I've ever seen for admiring the peaceful pond and landscaping. And the HOT TUB is a must!!! James is very responsive and makes the whole experience easy. The house is situated on a beautiful, quiet and private country road yet very close to Phoenicia, Woodstock, restaurants, hiking, you name it. Would definitely recommend it and come again!
James' place is so great! He's so quick to respond and made the whole experience very easy. The house is great and in a great location. We'll certainly be back!!
Thanks you! You are always welcomed! I appreciate the kind words..
This was our third stay at Jim's place - we love it! This is a perfect retreat from the city and we can't recommend this place more highly.
Thanks Fiona! I will look into some of your thoughts.
My wife and I had a great time at Jim's home for 4 days. The house is perfect for a hiatus in the country.
We were extremely comfortable in the house and Jim is an exceptional host!
We hope to be back again one day soon!
Thanks again for the great hospitality, Jim.
Evan is the best guest I have ever had. He was kind enough to replace the outdoor candles. He is always welcomed!!
James was a great guest! I never got to meet him personally but he was very easy to communicate with.
James was really helpful and a great guest although I did not meet him in person! It's always great to have another homeowner/airbnb host stay, they have such great respect for the home!
James and his friend were wonderful friendly guests! Great communicator!
James was a great guest. Had the whole house for a few days and made the experience very easy. James had a great sense of humor and is probably a great chap to kick around with. I'd recommend him to any other BNB'er!!
