Amazing time, amazing house

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time with our family (including our dog) over the Valentine's Day weekend. This house was perfect for our winter getway since it included a well equipped game room (pool table, dart board, putting green, etc.) of which we made great use of. The open design of the living room/kitchen included a wood fireplace and was just the perfect place for us all to hang out and eat, play games, and watch the snow come down. The view of the frozen lake was amazing, and even though it was below zero temperatures at times outside, we were warm and cozy inside. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need (except for the food) which was really great. The owners of the house were very attentive before and during our stay, and made the whole experience worryfree so we could focus on enjoying our time in the lakehouse. Will definitely be looking to book this house again (maybe try for the warmer weather next trip).

Comfortable retreat away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We (5 adults and 4 children) were looking for a New Year's getaway not too far from home (southwestern Connecticut). We were so lucky to find this gem. Only two hours away from home, the house was comfortable with enough space for everyone to spread out and do their own thing. The open concept of the first floor is perfect for everyone to hang out together. There were plenty of things in the house to keep everyone entertained. The kids enjoyed having their own retreat down in the basement with the pool table, putting green and board games. The adults enjoyed sitting around the roaring fire and just hanging out. The house has all you need to be able to cook in and not have to go out anywhere if you don't feel like it.

The walk around the lake is beautiful and everyone in the neighborhood is so friendly. The owner, Kevin, was so accommodating. He was very responsive and helpful when I was pestering him with questions about the area. I cannot say enough about Kevin and his great communication from where the grocery stores are to where you can go to eat to what is happening in the area. He was always available whether it was by email, phone or text...thanks, Kevin.

Everyone really enjoyed themselves. We are definitely planning to go back and are looking forward to it. Kevin and Laura, thank you for making your house available to us to ring in the New Year and escape for a few days!

December 2014 stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for 3 nights at the end of December with a family and friends, 5 kids and 4 adults all together (and a dog). The location of the house was perfect, on the lake and in the woods at the same time. Big, open, light, clean, comfortable house. With everything you might need in it. Kids (when inside the house) spent thereentire time in the basement - great room to keep you busy. So adults got to enjoy time with each other in the living/dining/kitchen area.

The owners are very responsive and helpful.

We are coming back this winter and summer as well.

Enjoyed Our Stay - Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this home in May of this year (2014). My wife and I were visiting the area, in particular we wanted to be close to the original Woodstock music festival site. This home is about a 5 to 10 minute drive from the site so its location was perfect for us.

The owners were wonderful to work with, cannot emphasize that enough. They were helpful in providing info on the surrounding area, events, things to do, and so forth.

The home was clean, and located right on a lake in a very pretty area. Each morning we had deer in our yard! My wife I enjoyed our stay and would absolutely return to this home again.

Couldn't have been a more perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I really cannot recommend this home or this renter highly enough. Our group was a party of 9 late 20's/early 30's New York professionals (and their dogs) looking to get the heck out of the city for the weekend. Kevin was always quick with responses and was super helpful with suggestions on what to do in the area, which we ended up not even checking out this time because the house and surrounding trails were just too awesome and there wasn't enough time in the day!

The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and dishes and in cooking 4 large meals for 9 people, we never were short a utensil or cookware item, which I can tell you is a masterpiece all of its own in a rental home. The pool table (the main selling point of the house for our group) was a beautiful table and the pool cues were actually very nice pool cues, which is always awesome to stumble upon unexpectedly. The putting green also added some unexpected fun for the guys in our group, and surprisingly the dart board wasn't used, but it was there, too! The non-pool players in our group had fun with a puzzle of a New York City terrace that's missing one piece (you'll see what I mean) and a camp fire on Saturday night with smores was really the icing on the cake. Actually, no, the icing on the cake was the stunning fall foliage because that was absolutely fantastic. But that was completely circumstantial so the credit can't all go to Kevin :)

We look forward to returning to this wonderful home in the future, and if you're thinking about renting it, go for it. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks so much again for the great weekend, Kevin!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what me and my 4 friends needed. It was a quiet neighborhood with a beautiful lake that was perfect to run around every morning. Everyone was super friendly and we took out the kayaks one day and floated in the lake enjoying the sun. I needed to destress from the hectic life of New York city and this was the place to do it.

The town was awesome- some of the best BBQ I've had in a while down by White Lake.

Kevin was a super nice guy and was beyond helpful with emails and advice on what to do and where to go.

The fire pit was key and the grill was great. All in all I had a great time.

The Town of Bethel was brought to the world's attention in 1969 when nearly 500,000 people gathered at Max Yasgur's Farm for 'Three Days of Peace and Music'. The Woodstock festival was held here in Bethel, 5 miles from our lake house, not in the Town of Woodstock.

In 2006, Bethel Woods opened on the original Woodstock site as a state-of-the-art performing arts venue. In early 2008, a multi-media Woodstock 'interpretive' museum opened near the old Yasgur's Farm to complement the concert space, which has hosted the New York Philharmonic, Wynton Marsalis, Diane Reeves, Chris Botti, the Goo Goo Dolls, the Boston Pops Orchestra, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd/Marshall Tucker Band, Bob Dylan, Richie Havens/Arlo Guthrie, Earth, Wind & Fire, the Boston Pops Orchestra, Steely Dan, the Allman Brothers, the Jonas Brothers, Heart, Journey, Cheap Trick and Brad Paisley to name a few.

If you can not make the concerts it is still a great place to visit and tour the Woodstock Museum
