A True Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic home in a fantastic location and owned by fantastic people. The home is close to amenities and yet feels remote and private. Very comfortable space for sleeping and living. The lake is a cool reprieve from the occasional hot day.

Perfect vacation house satisfied every expectation

  • 5 of 5
we loved our stay. The house is aesthetically colorful, restful and beautifully furnished, with unique artistic taste. it is a well equipped house with every convenience to make our stay comfortable. They left us a book containing best trips to take from the house as well as restaurants which proved extremely helpful. They even left us great hiking information and information about the area.
We especially enjoyed our time eating on the screened in porch and relaxing on the hammock and gliders. Nearby was the wonderful lake, conveniently equipped with chairs and boats for our use. We very much enjoyed the people we met who were congenial and welcoming
We give it a five star review and would return any time

Wonderful Place for your Summer escape

  • 5 of 5
I just adored staying in this magical place. Everything is as it is advertised and more. I ate every single meal out on the spacious screened in porch and my cat spent all day and night out there. During the day I was camped out at Lake Celeste bringing my picnic lunch. You can even drive down from the house and park your car there. More lounge chairs provided that you can ever want, never ever crowded, boats or all kinds for use, quiet, nobody bothers you, read or just stare into middle distance. Watch birds and water fowl, swim to your hearts content. The house has every amenity you could want. Great kitchen, dishwasher, bbq, washer/dryer, bird feeders outside the living room windows and my how they like to entertain you. Cable TV, wi fi, fireplace and sofas and club chairs to curl up in with a good book. Even a ceiling fan on the screened in porch. On the few nights we had a one of those classic summer thunderstorms I sat out on the porch and just drank in nature's pyrotechnics. I have rented summer homes in Garrison for years but this was the best place ever. There are many places to visit in the area when you are there but other than going to Cold Spring to stock up on groceries, I just couldn't tear myself away for this ideal location. I was so sad when it was time to leave. All I could think of was how can I stay here year round. House was immaculate when we checked in and there was maid service available at a reasonable price so we could leave it just the way we found it. The owners were a delight and I am still in touch with them. A lovely couple. Definitely a 5 star experience.

A VACATION AND STUDYING TRAVEL

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 children, from Brazil, and we spent 2 months in this house. It was a very good time, with snow, but the house was warm all the time. We used to go and return to NYC every day, because we were studying there. The house was the place were we can talk, play on the snow, the children became fascineted with deers, and was good for study; it was our safe place. The library was perfect , with so many books. we enjoy it.

WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE.???

WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE.???
  • 5 of 5
If you want to get out of the" RAT RACE" ....if your body and soul demands a well needed dose of tranquility, delight, wonderment, then this surely must be the place to get it!!
Tucked deep in the woods, with a background of tall green trees, this home sits nestled above a hill with suttle glimpses of a lake below if you try and peek through the trees.
This home is very comfortable and reflects the character and lives of real people. Meaning that you dont walk in and see an empty sterile enviroment. Instead you are greeted delightfully at every turn with cozy furniture, whimsical art and wonderful accessories.
Large picture windows in the living room allow you to enjoy the magical show of nature presented right in front of your eyes.
Birds busily gather at the feeders outside the windows, the squirrels clambering up the trees.
The occasional deer in the evening. All presented for your enjoyment.
A large deck in the back with furniture and a grill further allows you to kick back and enjoy your favorite beverage while drinking in the scenery. If the bugs in the woods get you then get up and move into the screened porch right next to the deck for a continued great view and experience.
Now for some practical matters. Do not let your GPS ruin your experience of getting here. FOLLOW MY LEAD . The GPS ( Garmin) almost drove us crazy! Take Route 9 to Traverse Corners Rd (near Garrison Country Club) follow until you get to Old Albany Post Rd turn right and follow around the lake (you will see Lake on left) keep going and you will turn left on Lake Celeste just follow the house numbers...
The lake is great. It has a dock to fish from as well as canoe and rowboat. No eating fish, but the large mouth bass are plentiful for the sport! My husband loved relaxing there, while I sat back with a glass of wine and watched him
The hike down to the lake was great but coming back up reminded me that I was out of shape! No matter, by the 3rd day I was good to go, but if you don't have the time or inclination just get in the car and drive there!
Don't miss the Garrison Landing where you can see right across the Hudson River to West Point. AWSOME! You are also pretty darn close to Bear Mountain. Not to be missed with a great lake,picnic areas, great easy hiking, and a fun zoo area.
Cold Spring down Rte 311 is filled with charm, antique stores, and great pizza. Follow yelp advise it's pretty accurate.
Have fun!

Property Not As Described / Owner Did Not Honor Refund

  • 1 of 5
Website advertised house with "Air Conditioning". Upon arrival we found a musty, damp, hot home. We found 1 window unit in a bedroom closet that had to be installed by us-the Renters.

Upon calling the owner, there was no answer on cell or home phone. The Owner didn’t return my call for over 9 hours. The Owner said they never advertised the house with A/C. We have a print out of the website showing "Air Conditioning" in the home. The Owner’s solution to the problem: “give it a day or two and see if you are OK at the house”. When I didn’t agree to that, they offered to bring a 2nd window unit. I told the owner 2 window units doesn’t equal A/C in the whole home. The morning after our dispute, the website was changed to say "2 air conditioned bedrooms". The website was changed, but the Owners never admitted the property was falsely advertised regarding A/C. We had to argue with the owner to get an offer of any refund. It has been 3 weeks since our stay and the Owner has not honored their word regarding a refund.

The owner was only focused on the money they would lose. There was no concern for our vacation stay. I didn't drive over 9 hours from my home anticipating a week stay in a lake home only to turn around and vacate the house and end up in a one room hotel property with my whole family. This should be a huge red flag to potential renters.

Other info you may like to know:
Access to the house is via a dirt/gravel road that is quite steep. The driveway is 1.9 miles from the paved road. I felt lucky to be driving a Chevrolet Tahoe.

The home is advertised with views. The views are of trees. You can’t see the lake from the home. The only view of water are glimpses of light reflecting off water through trees.

It is advertised as ‘secluded on 4 acres’. There are neighbors close enough to see and hear. The neighbor’s dog barking woke us up both mornings we were at the home.

Access to the lake was described as a 5 minute walk down the hill. Be aware, the ‘hill’ is the road to the home. It’s quite a walk to get to the lake–it’s not at all convenient.

The window in the master bath shower is located directly across from the BBQ Grill in the backyard and the deck area. There are no blinds in the master bath. Access to the washer and dryer is via an outside stairway and path leading to a dirty basement. The kitchen is described as "modernized' - it is dated.

We have rented from VRBO for over 12 years and NEVER had such a bad experience.

Owner's Response: It's our practice to reach out to each guest who stays at our home and make sure they are comfortable and are enjoying their stay in our home.

When this home was built AC was not necessary, but given the state of the planet and Global Warming being a reality we are having Central Air installed spring of 2014.

The home is professionally cleaned between each stay.

The home is on a hilltop and the views are of nature which this home is surrounded by. There is no need for a shade in the bath due to the amazing privacy provided by the trees.

The beauty of this home is that it is secluded and private and quiet and has plenty of space.

We've never had anything but thrilled travelers and are shocked by this review. The home speaks for itself.

Please don't hesitate to contact us a with any questions or concerns that you might have, but I assure you that if you're looking for nature and privacy at it's best, this is the place for you.

Thank you!
