Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great time at this house last weekend, the house is small but accommodates a good number of people without a problem, the kitchen is fully equipped and ready for a cook offs and the rooms are all very cozy and clean.



The indoor fireplace is gas, so it goes on for a long time without having to deal with it, and the outdoor fire pit surprisingly cozy around 2 feet of snow!



Nice to have board games and VHS tapes to watch while camping on the living room rug.



Also nice hiking, while being remote enough from everything else.



All and all a great experience! Thank you!

BIRTHDAY SURPRISE

  • 5 of 5
I grew up in the countryside of Trinidad, West Indies. I am accustomed to the quieter side of life and experiencing nature to the fullest. So upon arriving at Harriet Haven, I was blown away and mesmerized by the similarity - the mere fact that I can have a home away from home here versus the hustle and bustle of New York City.

Harriet Haven had a lot to offer beside the picturesque nature's view that surrounds it. The house was perfectly secluded yet not too far away from neighbors. I enjoyed lounging in the spacious porch which was open and perfect for a birthday night under the stars with friends. Beside the availability of a grill, I was totally impressed with the open fire pit to our disposal. It was the most fun I had in over a decade since I was able to cook outdoors. The area was well set with a bench and table to eat, plus the added bonus of a Gazebo.

The house itself was remarkably spotless! The ambience set by the owners gave a lot of character to the house. Each bedroom were inviting and well kept. I totally enjoyed relaxing in front of the fireplace at night with my friends playing cards.

As if that birthday weekend could not get better, it did because thankfully we were able to bring our pets to celebrate with us.

All in all, I will not hesitate to leave the noisy city of New York and journey to Harriet Haven for a small weekend getaway. You don't get the sense that you're away from the comfort of your home because the owners have went out of their way to make their house cosy and comfortable.

I am happy that I spent my birthday at Harriet Haven! And cannot wait to do it again. I will recommend this place to anyone who is searching for a tranquil weekend but yet in a home that's accommodating to all the necessities to make it remarkable and comfortable.

GREAT SPOT TO RELAX AND UNWIND!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first rental in VRBO so I was a little apprehensive and did not fully understand the process. The owners of this rental not only made me feel at ease during the rental agreement phase of this transaction, they walked me through the process slowly so I felt confident in the choice I had made. The house itself, was just what I wanted for my employee retreat. Big enough to house all of us, (6) comfortably. The house was clean and tidy when we arrived and ready for us to begin our weekend. The owners left a book of information for us that answered all of our questions as well, which helped a lot. The yard and fire pit were perfect for our wiffle ball tournament and late night conversations. Combine all these amenities with the wonderful price that was offered and I feel that this rental is a no-brainer. If you are looking for a quiet secluded rental for the family or just a nice romantic weekend with the wife, this is a great option.

BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
This house is beautiful and well-maintained. It truly feels like a home away from home. The kitchen is fully equiped and the living & dining room are large. The property is gorgeous and the location is easy to find. We stayed for a weekend in February and had no problems navigating the area even with snow.

We ate at Raimondo's, a nice little Italian restaurant in town and and took a side trip to Orange County Choppers one day. We plan on going back during the summer months to take advantage of all the outdoor activiities. The owners are very nice and helpful. I would definitely reccomend this property.
