Buyer Beware

  • 1 of 5
In a word: Surprising; and not in a good way.

Overall, the house had an odor that ranged between mold and petroleum oil. There was very little ventilation and the rooms where windows did open, did not have screens. The random pieces of carpeting that were covering parts of the floor (and wall) were all stained and smelled bad. Additionally, none of the towels were clean and one, in particular, smelled very strongly of vomit.

The advertisement for the house states that there are five bedrooms, but fails to mention that some of these bedrooms have no doors. One could argue, it is not a bedroom unless there is a door. Additionally, the bathroom doors did not close/lock.

The advertisement also fails to mention that within a few feet of the house away from sort of welding company (that was welding at 2am) and huge mounds of gravel and dirt.

There were mice and mice feces throughout the house as well.

We are incredibly disappointed in this house. In no way did the advertisement live up to what we walked into. Also, two people in our party are pregnant and neither one felt safe in the house due to the mold, insects, mice, mice feces and the overall unsanitary conditions of the house.

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry the Erika was disappointed with our home, however I do feel a the comments a bit harsh. I can not control the neighbor nor his activities at whatever time of day or night. There was one bedroom which lacks a door and the linens were laundered and placed there the very day of the rental so I do not understand the odor issue. But nevertheless I will do everything I can to make sure issues like this do not arise again.

My Sabbatical Time in Grand Gorge House

  • 5 of 5
I had a wonderful experience: Iit fulilled all my hopes for my three month sabbatical: time for reflection, study, meditation and hiking and fishing in the nearby areas: Schoharie Reservoir, Schoharie Creek, East Branch of the Delaware and West Branch.I was already familiar with Ashokan Reservoir and Esopus Creek. I was also in awe of Pepacton Reservoir and the trip to Roscoe and the Fly Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum. I especially enjoyed the Scenic Trail begining across the road (Rte. 30). I walked the trail toward Roxbury everal times. I told my friends about the whole area. Also it easy to get supplies at the nearby supermarkets: Great American, Tops, and Freshtown. Oenonta and the Mall there is near enough for other needs. St. Philip Neri and Sacred Heart Churches fulfilled my worship need more than adequately. The scenic opportunity and famous sights in the aerea are abundant in Delaware, Schoharie, Greene, Ulster and Sullivan Counties. I would recommend this house to everyone. It is spacious with wonderful facilities.

Hiram, thank you very much for my most enjoyable three months here. It went by much too, too quickly.

Peace,

John Kaserow

In the town of Roxbury, this home gives the pleasere of small town life. Close to stores and shops, ten minutes to plattakill ski center and nearby wedding venues, twenty five minutes to Belleayre mountain center and about the same to Windham and Hunter mountains. The catskill scenic trail borders the property and offers many wonderful vewings of wildlife from the common squirls to deer and an occasional black bear.

For the outdoorsman there are thousands of actes of great hunting land nearby with abundant deer on state and city lands all available to you.

The outdoor fire pit give great pleasure for those evenings roasting mallows and gazing at the stars in the dark of the night.
