We really enjoyed our stay, the house is lovely. Nikie was a wonderful host and left out really helpful info and guidebooks about the area. Our daughter was thrilled to see the toys set out for her when we arrived, it was a really thoughtful touch!
We had a great weekend at Nikie's beautiful home. She left wine for us and books about the area. It snowed during the weekend so other than trouncing around the grounds with the dog, we relaxed by the fire and cooked. Would definitely come again.
What a cute country house! Just right for a weekend away from the city with you sweetheart. Nikie's decor is what really seperates this house from the pack - very charming and personal without feeling stuffy or dusty. We came for a snowy winter weekend and cozied up around the fireplace. I can imagine it would also be a great place to pass time in the summer months.
We rented Nikie's home for the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend and it was absolutely perfect and exactly what we were hoping for. We all loved the charm of the old home, which was so tastefully decorated, cozy and comfortable for all of us. The home had absolutely everything we needed, including all the supplies to bake a pie and cook a full Thanksgiving dinner. We made use of all the space and our two small children delighted in all the books, toys, DVDs and games available. We also loved exploring the lovely yard, the trampoline and the tree swing. Nikie was a gracious, responsive host, gifting us a bottle of wine and quickly responding to our various questions over text about how to find things. The location is perfect, amongst the farmland, and it was an easy drive for us to visit both Redhook town and Rhinebeck. I would not hesitate to recommend the home to any dear friend looking for the perfect getaway and we hope to return.
Had a wonderful stay at Nikie's home in Red Hook. Amazingly quiet and peaceful spot for a fall weekend. The house itself is great, really enjoyed the kitchen and the woodburning stove. Would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend away (but with plenty to do 10-30 minutes away), and would definitely go back myself.
So many good things to say about our stay at Nikie's place, and the highlights are many. Nikie showed up with a bottle of red wine, which was a nice touch. She allowed us to bring along our pets, as our apartment was being renovated over the weekend. Fridge was stocked, place was clean and well maintained - beautiful back yard and enclosed porch to enjoy the Fall weather. 30 minute drive to either Hudson or Rhinebeck for shopping/dining out (watch out for the deer), and if you prefer sticking to the house, there are plenty of books and games to keep you busy, plus Netflix and Wii.
Nikie was easily accessible the entire weekend and gave us a great deal to stay over for a third night on short notice. Great experience all around, thanks again :)
Nikie was a wonderful host! We were grateful to her for being prompt in communication, and even leaving some personal touches like a basket of toys for my young daughter. The home is beautifully decorated and was so comfortable for a long weekend getaway. It was a perfect location to spend time in Hudson, Rhinebeck and hiking in many of the gorgeous surrounding trails and parks. We'd love to come back!
Nikie's home was a wonderful place to stay for our friends' wedding weekend. Comfortable, warm and beautifully decorated... wish we had a longer trip so we could've used her fantastic kitchen. Thanks as well for putting those wooden blocks and hand drum out for our toddler -- he loved them! :)
Nikie is a wonderful host, and her home is lovely. There's a reason why we've stayed twice - we love it!
We had a wonderful stay at Nikie's house in Red Hook! The house is secluded out in the gorgeous Hudson Valley countryside, but still within minutes of town for any amenities you might need. A great place for a weekend getaway.
Nikie and her family were fantastic guests. When we got back from our trip we couldnt even notice anyone had even been there. They cleaned up so well and left no trace what so ever. The communication leading up to their trip was also very positive and straight forward. We would recommend Nikie as a guest to anyone!
Nikie and her family were terrific guests. Communication was easy and they left the place in perfect condition. It is always nice to host a fellow host -- I would welcome them back anytime.
