I enjoy traveling, cooking, sports and making quality time to spend with friends and family.
Great retreat in the country. Will be back! James was a great host. Loved the pool!
The house is even better than the pictures. You have everything that you need for a peaceful escape from the city. I love the individual spaces like the fire pit, pool outside dining, BBQ area and then inside the house. The kitchen is massive and well equipped. The house was very clear and functional. I love d the privacy and location... super quiet.
James/Jim was a great host. There was a mix up when we arrived but he was very gracious and provided a fair solution. We are looking forward to our next stay at this property and would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for peace, quiet and relaxation.
Response from James:
Thank you Fiona! You are always welcomed!
This is the perfect place to stay!
The house is spotless and VERY well equipped. The design and layout is superb. Simply superb.
The pool is a great size, and is stunningly located amongst the trees. And there's plenty of sun loungers and seats to lay out on.
The deck is huge and has a great table to enjoy a BBQ in the sun.
And when the sun goes down there's a great hot tub and fire pit to enjoy.
And should it rain, there's the sheltered front deck to sit on.
He's designed so many wonderful different areas that it means you really can spend all day everyday there!
We are definitely going to go back!
Yes folks, I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
We just returned from a long weekend at Jim's mountain house, and could not have been happier with the experience. The house and gardens are stunning, with plenty of space for two couples to lounge around. There were two big, bright bedrooms (one with private bath), a fireplace room, a dining area, a large and modern kitchen, and a huge living area complete with comfy couches and flatscreen/cable/DVDs. Outdoors had a nice BBQ area, a firepit, a beautiful pond, a jacuzzi (perfect for lounging under the starry night), and a huge heated swimming pool.
The house is about 2 hours from NY, 20 minutes from Woodstock, with plenty of hiking/fishing around.
We will definitely be returning to this house soon!!
James place was perfect. House was beautiful and the beds were super comfortable. I will be going back again winter, or summer.
Jim was an awesome host. We stayed at his place over New Year's Eve and had an amazing time. It was a great escape from the city. I'd definitely recommend.
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!!
