Our stay at Raspberry Ridge was wonderful. Laurence and Ilze were very responsive both before and after we arrived. And the cottage is exactly as described - very cute, comfortable, clean, with plenty of space for a larger group (we were 5).
It was great staying with Laurence and Ilze. Five of us stayed for one night and really enjoyed ourselves. The place is decorated really nice with a fire place on the ground floor. We met the dogs. They are super cute! Thank you for hosting us! We would love to come back and visit again.
Thanks Anne - glad you enjoyed yourselves! Come again - the summers are nice in the mountains.
Perfect cottage for ski catamount enthusiasts! Cosy, warm, a wood stove and wonderful hospitality!
Thanks Tomer - glad you enjoyed yourselves!
Laurence and Ilze are outstanding hosts and their cottage is lovely. Our group of 6 stayed during a blizzard and Laurence and Ilze went above and beyond, helping us dig our car out of a snowbank and bringing us firewood for the woodstove each morning. They are really laid back hosts, there if you need them but not overbearing. The cottage is beautiful and well-stocked. I would happily return for another long weekend getaway. Thanks again!
Glad you enjoyed it! Come again!
One of the best vacation homes ever. the house is amazing, everything was clean, and design to details perfectly, its way bigger than the pictures, and was sooo nice and cosy. the hosts were super gracious and the location was perfect. a wonderful weekend getaway from the busy NYC. we will be coming back for sure!
Glad you liked it! Your poor little snow man almost got buried in the snow storm we had the day you left - I took a picture and posted on Facebook!
Staying at Ilze and Laurence's cottage was delightful!!! The house is warm, spacious and in the middle of AMAZING woods! Only 15min to Hudson, it was a perfect stay.
I went for an intimate birthday celebration and the only thing I regret is the short length of my stay!
I'll be back!
THANK YOU LAURENCE AND ILZE (and please pet our new friend Puppy from us!)
Poppy (120 lbs of white fluffy fur) says you are the best guests ever! Glad you enjoyed your birthday - and may you enjoy many many happy more. Best - Ilze
We had a wonderful time at Laurence and Ilze house. The fire place was able to heat all the house, the cleanness was perfect and the location is great. We could tracking in the woods and we went to Hudson City in 15 min for the winters party. The Diner at walking distance is delicious. We will certainly be back.
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed the house and local area. Sorry the weather was so miserable during your stay; another time.
Rasperry Ridge Cottage was immaculate,cozy and very peaceful. The hosts were so gracious and welcoming. It was such a treat to have the wood burning stove blazing when we returned from our outings. I look forward to returning to visit in the summer.
Glad you were able to make it! Looks very different in the summer - hope to see you again.
We had a great time. The house is really nice, bigger than expected and perfect for our group of friends. The kitchen had everything we needed for our dinner party. There was also a lot of board games to choose from. The diner is also close by and perfect for brunch. Will definitely come back. Perfect for a weekend getaway from NYC.
Thanks! You were terrific guests - I really appreciated the extra effort you made to clean up - that was very nice. Come back any time.
We loved staying here! We were given a tour around the cottage when we first arrived that described where everything was located and tips for using things. The cottage itself is very beautiful and is an interesting place to stay. The grounds around it are also worth the trip. The family's pets are fun to visit with. The surrounding area offers a lot of great options for spending the day out. We were very impressed by everything there was to see and do in Hudson. It was the perfect backdrop for us to celebrate our friends' recent engagement.
Glad you had a great time! Poppy misses Tim. Come back again if you like.
Laurence and Ilze are great hosts, really accommodating. They will make sure you have a wonderful time and your needs are met. My husband and I have know them for years and we always feel welcome in their home. I recommend them highly as hosts and as friends.
