We were attending a water polo tournament at The U.S. Military Academy at West Point, NY and this house was one of the few for rent in the area. The scenic drive took about 30 minutes and actually was a very enjoyable ride. The house was just perfect for our needs. It was very close to shopping and restaurants. We didn't miss not having a TV at all, and the high speed internet was all we needed to keep connected to the outside world. The house was warm and cozy as temperatures dropped in the evenings. The kitchen had everything we needed for home cooked meals. The beds were very comfortable. Hari was a great host. If you find yourself in the area or just want an escape to the country for some peace and quiet, we highly recommend this wonderful home.
