Guestbook comments from the owner
David,







Thanks for sending the deposit back so quickly. We did receive it yesterday.







Thanks for letting us stay at your home. It was so absolutely perfect for our family—plenty of space for all of us to sleep and gather together for games, etc. The guest house was perfect for our family with little children who go to bed much earlier than our teenagers and who also get up much earlier than all of the rest of us. The pond was great and it was especially wonderful to have all the toys, etc to use. We also enjoyed the canoe, the fire circle, the ATV and the beauty of the land. We just wished we had more days to just spend at the house, enjoying the quiet and beauty.







Thanks also for being so easy to work with. You answered all of our questions quickly and provided much needed information about the area.







We would love to come back some time and will surely refer you to any who might be vacationing in that area.







Thanks for helping make our family vacation so enjoyable!

80TH BIRTHDAY PARTY

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property to hold a family gathering to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. We had family come from Maryland, Florida, Idaho, PA & NY. It was an easy commute from the Buffalo airport. Upon arrival, we felt right at home. We loved the quiet, country location. Loved hearing the peepers in the evening.The estate was as pictured, clean & comfortable. We cooked outside each night, played games in the garage & walked the grounds. It is so spacious & no one felt crowded. We rented the entire place so it worked quite well having 2 kitchens available for meals. David was great to work with. I would rent again in a heart beat!

LARGE FAMILY HOLIDAYS ACCOMMODATED EASILY!

  • 3 of 5
Was a great spot and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Especially since we had snow on Christmas day! Not something that can always be guaranteed! House was comfortable and accommodates large family groups easily. We were a family of 17 travelling from NZ!! We had an amazing white christmas - snow, snow fights, snow men, sledding...was awesome! thanks!!
I was slightly disappointed with the cleanliness - fridge, stove, sink, dishwasher all needed a clean. The electronics in the house are a little dated - but spent a lot of time outside.

GREAT SPOT FOR REUNION OF COLLEGE FRIENDS WITH YOUNG KIDS

  • 4 of 5
This property was comfortable, clean, and spacious. David was very accommodating and easy to work with. We had a large group (8 kids, 8 adults), and there was plenty of space (and beds) for everyone. We skied at Swain, which was less than 10 minutes away and very family-friendly. The kids went sledding behind the house on sleds supplied by David. I would definitely rent here again!

WINTER WONDERLAND

  • 5 of 5
Perfect central location to meet...we had folks coming from Connecticut, Ohio and Michigan. We had 16 people over the Thanksgiving holiday. Wonderful home with plenty of room and a well equipped kitchen! The house was clean and ready for us. Kids and adults had an absolute blast on the surrounding sledding hills. Between sledding, ping pong and family meals it was a complete success. We didn't really leave the property for the 3 days we were there except for a quick trip to the bowling alley one night. Thank you to David Cesar.

WONDERFULLY RELAXING AND FUN FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
Highly recommend this property for family vacation. The property was exactly as advertised. The main house and guest house slept and fed 14 of us comfortably - wife and I, 3 children and their spouses, and 6 grandchildren. David was very friendly and accommodating. When we left the property my grandson had hidden the remote and David was very understanding - hope he found the remote! Oldest daughter, husband, and teenager stayed in the guest house (one bed unused). Their pre-teen slept in the downstairs bedroom of the main house (she didn't want to sleep in same room with her sister - could have seen that one coming!) The other two couples and their small children slept in two bedrooms upstairs. The eight year old loved the small attached bedroom to her mom and dad's room. Grandma and I slept in the master bedroom. Two other beds were still available upstairs with a crib in the master. I believe that a sofa bed was in the living room - their is your 20! Plenty of room. We ate all meals either in the spacious kitchen or the outdoor picnic tables - two large for adults/teens and small one for the children. We grilled several meals. I strongly encourage renting the 6 passenger ATV. The pond is several hundred yards up a steep hill. All loved the pond and several of the days were spent up their swimming, diving off the dock, canoeing or enjoying the beach toys. What a blast! The ATV helped hauling people and making beer runs. Likewise, when Grandma and I needed peace and quiet, we would jump in the ATV and make a run around this large property filled with berry bushes (picked some) and fruit trees (wrong time of year). Feral cats on property but no bother except when they stole a bag of marshmallows that somebody left out! To explain the solitude and peace, I recall telling friends that I saw two vehicles - tractor traveling up road in morning and back in the evening. Fun watching the cows on same schedule! The surrounding area had very friendly people. Being from city life you forget how nice people can be. Most of our shopping was done at Wegman's in Hornell but some excellent meat at Wilson's Beef Farm. Several fruit and vegetable stands along road but we found Wegman's to be fresh and good value. Hiked at Stony Creek State Park. Couple of pretty waterfalls and inviting swimming hole at entrance. Overall we would love to go back sometime. Our family's favorite vacation - great family time!

Owner's Response: Thank You for your kind remarks! It is so nice to hear from all those family's enjoying the property and surrounding area. Every year we like to add improvements to the property and I think the commercial swing set was one of the big hits that kept so many children entertained this year. I am amazed to hear from all the travelers that have come from far distances to spend quality time with their family's at the Country Gentlemen's Estate. Seems everyone wants a piece of the "country life" for rest and relaxation. A great place to get away from the hectic pace of the city.

Notes:
Hunting is not allowed on premises. The 1,500 acre Slader Creek state forest across the street is ideal for hunting. The spring fed 3/4 acre pond on the hill is perfect for swimming. We treat the water with barley straw which acts as hydrogen peroxide and keeps the algae to a minimum. The pond has a shallow end for kids with an 18 ft deep end for snorkeling. There is a nice size sandy beach with a dock and seating for 8 people. We have plenty of sand toys for the kids to use on the beach. Bring your own beach towels! 6 passenger Polaris Ranger Crew ATV is available to rent for $300 a week. A great vehicle to get around the property. No other ATV's allowed on property! We have lots of board games & outdoor games including horse shoes and an outdoor camp fire spot. 5 child swing-set just installed. This property is secluded from large farms, thus no worries about breathing animal odors. Come and enjoy the fresh air in the hills! Highspeed Internet access installed last year.
