Cozy Cottage, Peaceful Setting

  • 5 of 5
My family of five had a wonderful time in this lovely little cottage in the woods! The property is beautifully maintained and Fran has thought of everything that you might need while traveling away from home! It felt so homey. My kids loved staying up in the little loft. It was so comfortable and in such a peaceful setting with only the sounds of the nearby waterfall and chirping birds to help you relax and unwind from a busy life! We have family in the area and were in town for a reunion at nearby Lake Taghkanic Park. We will definitely be back and hope that the cottage is available when we return!

An amazing girls weekend

  • 5 of 5
I booked Fran's cabin as a group of 6 for a girls weekend and we had an AMAZING time. The home is spacious and as mentioned in other reviews photo's do not do it justice! There is tons to do in nearby Hudson and it was so relaxing to get out of the city for a weekend. Fran is extremely accommodating and helpful with regard to planning and sending me directions. We hope to come again soon!

Lovely Place

My family stayed here for the weekend in October and we were all very pleased. The cabin is very well maintained and comfortable and the property is beautiful. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Perfect weekend escape from NYC!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful cabin tucked away on the owner's property. My girlfriend and I wanted to leave NYC for the weekend, and it was a quick 2 1/2 hr drive away. The cabin was SO CLEAN. Fran does a wonderful job. There is everything you need, kitchen utensils, bath towels, plenty of pillows and blankets. It was great to be in the woods, we saw deer on the property a couple of times. There is a beautiful river that runs behind the cabin and it has two waterfalls that are within walking distance. We went to Hudson a few times during our stay, it is only a 15 min drive away and there is plenty to do--good food at baba louie's, awesome bar/bookstore called the spotty dog, and fun dancing at night at the half moon. We plan to come back in the summer time and bring friends!

wonderful time away from the city

  • 5 of 5
My roommates and I decided to take a quick weekend vacation out of Brooklyn and were so lucky to find Fran and Peter's cabin to stay in. The cabin itself had everything you could possibly need, lots of room for guests to sleep, a really nice porch on the back overlooking the woods and a creek, and overall contributed immensely to our nice trip north. Fran and Peter were very welcoming and I would highly recommend a vacation to stay in their cabins. We all hope to be back sometime in the Spring or Summer to enjoy other activities in the area!

Immaculate and well-appointed, this cabin had lots of charm on the outside but was new and clean on the inside. All the appliances you would expect in a modern home including Satellite TV. Beds were were very comfortable and the layout accommodated four single people easily.
