Our stay couldn't have been better at this wonderful home less than 2 hours from NYC. The home was more spacious than expected and was on beautiful, scenic property. We really enjoyed the outdoor firepit in the evening (and making smores) and the vast sky full of stars which are not visible in NYC. And to accompany the scenic view are the serene sounds from the creek nearby. The home was cozy and stocked with games and dvds. The furnishings were extremely comfortable and the home is stocked with everything you need. The home is very well maintained. Patti Ann was very helpful in providing detailed information: directions, information about the property, and suggestions of things to do in the area. We booked this last minute and Patti Ann was very responsive. We loved the nearby state park - Mongaup Pond, which had fishing, very cheap kayak/canoe rentals and swimming. We caught 16 fish with one fishing pole and one handmade pole from a stick of wood! Great place! We also enjoyed Livingston Manor Covered Bridge Park which had chickens and other animals and also a 20 minute hike to reach a beautiful waterfall. Also the town of Livingston Manor is very quaint and the people are so friendly. The overall experience exceeded my expectations and we loved staying at this home. I feel so rested after this trip! Oh and there are two precious miniature horses on property nearby.
