Patricia was a very gracious and accommodating host. Although we never met her, her on-site managers, Deb and Don, aka the house neighbors were helpful but never intrusive. We saw Don as we were getting ready for our Saturday ski excursion in the morning and he offered to bring us firewood from the shed for us to use in the living room fire stove. Don also offered great advice when we asked for hiking/walking paths (the five acres behind the house and across the Freehold airport to the creek).
Patricia was also easy to reach via e-mail and very responsive closer to the day/week of our trip. She also sent very detailed and informative check-in/check-out instructions, house amenities, and suggested dining/shopping/recreational activities in the vicinity.
The house itself had a lot of character. We especially loved the kitchen with its retro finishes (retro microwave, rustic cabinets, etc.). We bought a lot of groceries and cooked up a storm for brunches and dinners so having a dishwasher and a big, modern refrigerator was essential. Half our group decided to stay indoors and bake while the other half went skiing, so having access to every kitchen tool and appliance and basic baking ingredients and spices came very handy!
We also appreciated the many boardgames and Wii game system! It kept the homebodies entertained.
The bedrooms were adequate, given that we were pushing the accommodations limit with our group of 13. The master bedroom and the two double beds room were the most spacious, but the two private double rooms were fine for the couples in our group. Although, you might want to open a window overnight as it does get stuffy/overheated!
We were also able to fit in extra air mattresses in the double beds' room and in the living room.
The bathrooms were unique, although the water pressure in the rainfall shower could be better. It did not help that we had such a large group but everyone took longer showers because of the weak water pressure. There is also limited hot water in the spa bathroom in the entry floor. Some of us girls wanted to try soaking in the spa tub but found the hot water would turn to cold after a few seconds. The shower stalls in both bathrooms are also surprisingly narrow, despite the bathroom being a decent size. But they were both well-stocked with single use/travel size toiletries.
We loved the house for our ski trip (Windham was only a 25 min drive!) We're interested in returning for a summer trip to swim in the creek!
