We live in Brooklyn. Work in the arts and academia. Have a little upstate getaway that we love.
We really enjoyed our stay at Sara and Kyle's charming home in Hillsdale. Everything was clean, well-kempt, and as it appeared in the photos. Sara and Kyle were very responsive before our trip; during our actual stay, they were out of town, but we were still able to get quick answers from their very capable friend Jonney, whom they left in charge as house liaison. The location does not feel isolated (we could sometimes hear neighbors talking next door, and the house is right off the road), but it was still easy to relax. We enjoyed playing Trivial Pursuit and watching Netflix and using the cute little notebook grill at the house.
Sara and Kyle were well-organized and respectful of our time in setting up the visit. They also communicated very well throughout our stay. Their cozy home is a fantastic place for a getaway, especially for a couple. It is located in a quaint town with a few good shops and cafes, and is just a few miles from GB and skiing. The home is very clean and a perfect spot for a getaway!
We had a great time up at Sara & Kyle's place and will definitely be returning! It was just what we needed - a weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of NYC. Their home is cozy, well appointed, and truly perfect for a retreat. We felt the stress melt away within minutes of stepping through the door. Has everything you could need - we cooked and stayed in all weekend, read, listened to their awesome record collection, watched movies... The bedroom is up in a cozy but spacious loft; renovated bathroom with great shower; kitchen has all you need. Hillsdale, the village center, is just up the road with a market, wine shop, general store and a restaurant. Kyle was incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating. Highly recommend!!
Fabulously cozy cabin with all the modern amenities. Our family could not have been more comfortable throughout! And we will definitely be back soon.
Sara was phenomenally accommodating, and even drove up from Brooklyn to make sure that everything was OK. She went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that everything was perfect. And even bought us coffee!
Many thanks again for everything,
Sara and i have been close friends for over 17 years. We've stayed in each others' homes and traveled together more times than i could ever count, and she is truly one of the most thoughtful and responsible people i know. As an airbnb host myself, I couldn't provide a higher recommendation.
