I've rented homes in upstate NY many times and Jeff's home was by far the most clean, comfortable and idyllic I've come across. You can tell that he put a lot of thought and care into restoring and decorating the home, and there are also some really creative touches. The downstairs bathroom is particularly memorable. I also really appreciated all the art in the house.
The bedrooms were cozy and the bed was super comfortable. A lot of times I have trouble sleeping without 'city noises' but the gurgling stream outside put me right to sleep :) The kitchen was great for hanging out and it was clearly designed for some serious cooking.
It was a chilly Easter weekend so we spent more time hanging out by the wood stove than exploring. I'm looking forward to getting back to Delhi soon to check out the area more.
And thank you for the bubbles, Jeff! Such a warm welcome from the caretaker too. I highly recommend the Bear Hill house.
