Florence Tucker, my step Mom was born here. She lived and cared for the farms all her life. Her mother and children ran a vacation place in the 1930's. Flo married my Dad in 1976 and they later build the log home. They loved this place which is why it is still in the family and hope to keep it that way.
Carol J. Mann purchased this lodge in 1920
This property is too beautiful not to share.
A perfect place to unwind. From beautiful views to an abundance of wildlife to enjoy. Sit on the covered porch during a storm, watch the geese land in the pond, rabbits chasing each other along the hedge row, deer grazing and the sound of the owls and coyotes lulling you to sleep at night.
Beautiful location w/ plenty of room inside and out. Can snow shoe/cross country ski and sled right out the front door!
The log cabin is equipped with everything you could possibly need; however, electronics are a bit dated so don't expect to stay connected while you are here...which is the point! The property is situated in such a way that you can expect privacy and relaxation. It is a great property for families and in our case, a group of friends who wanted to get away from the city. We were able to take our dogs which is very important to us. The pond is not really good for swimming, but we were able to easily take some chairs and a cooler down to do some fishing.
The property owners are great! We met Mike briefly who stopped by to make sure we had everything we needed. We never saw him again but were assured he was just a phone call away.
I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet vacation near the city.
This really is a private and secluded property. Beautiful in early spring...must be even better in the summers! We were 4 families that had a most wonderful weekend together here. The owners are a pleasure to deal with. The cabin is clean and cozy. The boat rides at the pond was the highlight of the stay for the kids....and all this so close to town! Highly recommended.
My wife and I had such a peaceful time at this log home. Absolutely beautiful!
Everything was what it said in the ad and then some. If your looking for peace and quiet this is the place to be. We had nice barbecue dinners, after dinner we went down to the pond and did some fishing in one of the row boats. Caught a couple of huge sunnies! As the sunset behind the house the deer came out all around the pond. Animals and birds everywhere.
Beautiful place, I would absolutely recommend this home to friends. Very neat well maintained, house has nice smell when you walk in. Not old and musty. Carol and her son Michael are very helpful and friendly. Can't wait to go back..
Stayed in the house for a weekend with a few of my classmates and our dates as we celebrated 500th night. Only three bedrooms, so if you're looking for places for couples, this may not be your choice, but the living area and kitchen is a very fun place to hang out. Lots of beds, just not in separate rooms, so this is probably a more ideal family spot than anything.
4 stars because it wasn't EXACTLY perfect for what we were looking for but in the summer with a family I imagine this place would be tough to beat.
Still, we will definitely be coming back! Beautiful house, secluded location, everything you need to have a great time. Maybe when we have more time, we can check out the local area but Wallkill is a nice small town.
Listing description: completely accurate
Customer service: A little out of touch once it came time to pay, but that's probably equally my fault too. But early in the process it was fantastic and the rental agreement is very helpful.
Recommend to a friend or relative?: Absolutely
Activities, attractions, restaurants: didn't check any out but it's beautiful country. It really is.
A group of 10-12 of us were looking for a place to stay for a week of playing board games. We needed a place that was reasonably easy to access from NYC, that could accommodate that many people as well as our 4 dogs, and that had ample table space for the games.
Well our needs were more than met in each of these categories. There were 3 large tables for games. There was a total of something like 10 beds including the pull out couches and futons. And there was ample fields and grass for the dogs to romp on. They also really loved the big pond. The pond has a lot of mud and weeds right on the banks, but if you row out on the boat, the middle of the pond is great for swimming.
The hosts were friendly and helpful.
All in all, highly recommended!
