I am a new Yorker,that moved to the country to cut and split his own wood so that he can enjoy the warmth of a woodburning fire in his living room.I raised chicked an turkeys ,grew my own tomatoes and bicycled every day on the backroads of Croton
Great escape. Exactly as described. Very private and in great area for hiking, walking, biking, and relaxing. We can't wait to go back. It was great to have the fridge stocked with some food and a bottle of wine when we arrived. We rented a car which made it easy to explore all the great things so close by but we also walked to the Croton dam and aqueduct trail, and we just enjoyed lounging by the pool and grilling dinner. Why share a pool at a hotel when you can basically have this to yourself? Hosts are lovely and around if you need them.
Harvey's place is very nice and quiet. It is the perfect place for a working couple to relax and enjoy a peaceful weekend. Plus, the beautiful Croton dam is right near by. Harvey and Arda are very hospitable. Overall, we felt this is a great choice, and we will definitely go back sometime.
We LOVED this place. The apartment was cozy and very well appointed. We could have shown up without toiletries and groceries and been fine, which was a great touch.
The best part of the property for us was the lovely outdoor patio, with grill and pool. We spent most daylight hours outside. We were also thrilled to have access to mountain bikes, which we used to ride the country roads and check out the local sites. It's a beautiful area.
Harvey and Arda were wonderful and gracious hosts. We really enjoyed our stay- just a quick trip out of the city and so relaxing. Highly recommended!
Once again, we had a great stay with Harvey and Arda. They are very hospitable and welcoming, and such interesting people to get to know. The apartment is very comfortable, well furnished, and roomy, especially for a longer stay. We particularly enjoy having a separate living room. The fridge was well stocked with breakfast supplies.
My wife and I really enjoyed staying at Harvey and Arda's. This was a perfect getaway from New York City. On one hand it's not far from the city, on the other, it's so peaceful and picturesque there, that we forgot all about our noisy mega metropolis.
Harvey and Arda were great hosts. It was very interesting to meet and to talk to them; too bad, we were there such a short time.
Had a lovely early spring weekend (4/12-4/13) with Harvey and Arda. Beautiful space that was a nice-sized one bedroom with a closet, big TV and a nicely stocked fridge and cupboard! We did a couple of hikes in the area and ate at Unami and Peekskill Brewery. Everything was clean and quaint and the hosts were lovely, helpful folks.
Definitely would consider going back later this summer!
Harvey and Arda were great hosts. We stayed with them so we could get to Storm King bright and early the next morning, and the place was perfect for that. It seems like it would be really fun to stay in the summer so you could make use of the beautiful outdoor space.
We stayed in Harvey and Arda's comfortable, cozy apartment for two weeks in March. With a queen bed in the bedroom, living room with TV, furnished kitchen and bath, it was the perfect spot from which to visit with our children and new granddaughter and yet still have time to ourselves. The space is nicely decorated with art of all kinds -- far homier than a hotel -- and Harvey and Arda are warm, welcoming hosts, even inviting guests to enjoy weekend happy hour and conversation. We feel fortunate to have chosen their space for our stay.
And despite the wintry weather, the wooded scenery and location near the Croton Dam offered a delightful contrast to NYC's crowding and hustle. We enjoyed listening to the birds calling across the tree canopy each morning and would love to have picnicked near the river had the season been different. What a spectacular spot! We would love to see it in the summer. Thank you, Arda and Harvey! We will be back!
This place is amazing! I worked out of the apartment in the lower level of the home for a photo shoot, as well as the grounds which have incredible backdrops, and the upper portion of the home. The hosts were cordial, helpful and so professional and courteous. I definitely recommend this place for a great stay and some peace and quiet.
We had a fabulous weekend at this apartment in Croton-on-Hudson. Harvey and Arda were wonderful hosts and were extremely welcoming. They picked us up and dropped us back to the station, kept the kitchen stocked with essentials and were very helpful with tips on what to do in the area. The apartment itself is quaint and well maintained, very private and has beautiful views of the grounds. While we were there, there was a blanket of snow covering the countryside, making the view and walks even more breathtaking. The nearby dam and walks around the frozen reservoir were very scenic. We'll be back soon to see the change of leaves in the Fall. Thank you Harvey and Arda!
