Shawn was a wonderful, responsive host who really made my big, busy family feel at home. I would highly recommend staying at this beautiful, sprawling property. Even though it was quite rainy and overcast throughout our summer stay, we still found a multitude of fun things to do in the area (swimming hole when the clouds broke, Tuthilltown Spirits when it poured) and honestly just enjoyed cooking big meals and hanging out in the bright, clean common areas of the home. This property was particularly great for a group with kids-- the lawns are beautifully kept and huge! Perfect for a soccer match or tee ball game. Plus, the river is very accessible, but far enough from the house that it feels safe to just let kids or dogs out to play without having to keep a super watchful eye over them. I hope to return to this home-- really such a wonderful getaway!
