This review is slightly belated, and written now as it's been almost five months since visiting "the Main House" and it's property and I'm going through serious withdrawal! We have been coming to this property regularly now for more than 5 years and I can say without reservation that it is a true gem, one of the most wonderful places we have stayed in around New York and even much further afield. The property itself is unique: while it's a short and pleasant walk into town, one feels very much secluded on the farm, resulting in a very real feel of a get-away from the hectic realities of every day life. The house itself is a haven: spacious, with several areas for communing with a group while also offering several nooks throughout the house for some peace and quiet. We have been coming regularly with groups of friends -- 4 to 5 families, all with young children -- and the unanimous feeling is that this is a very unique and special place. Where else can one walk a few steps from the house to a private and secluded beach; or BBQ just off of the bay; play frisbee in a spacious garden overlookign the sesa; or wander along a beautiful, natural marsh complete with herons? The owner has consistently been very friendly, responsive and gracious; we enjoy his company and hospitality and have enjoyed learning about the area from him. He has gone out of his way to ensure that we feel at home and that we have what we need. We have come back to this home time and time again -- it's something that we, our children and our friends look forward to, and we are already looking forward to our summer time visits!
