PLENTY OF ROOM AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
As mentioned in the other reviews Karin was simply amazing to work with. She was VERY accommodating to our needs, quick to respond to any and all questions and always friendly. I cannot say enough good about renting the house.

I traveled to Hancock for work this winter with seven other foresters. We stayed for two weeks total on two separate occasions and the house had plenty of room for us. It is well organized and clean. The mounts in the great room are incredible.

We did not get to enjoy the property because of the two feet of snow but i did enjoy watching the deer walk around the pond in the morning with my coffee and listening to the owls hoot on warm nights. I am hoping to come back sometime for vacation with some family and enjoy the quite surroundings.

FYI - There is no cell or internet service. Some people may see this as a hindrance but I enjoyed the break.

GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
My friends and I headed up from NYC for a weekend of fishing, hiking, and relaxing in the country. Although we didn't catch any fish in the pond we had a great weekend hanging out at the house with all the animals. The owner, Karin, was friendly and extremely helpful throughout the entire rental process as well as during our stay.

GREAT WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful weekend with some friends here. We were looking for a place to get away from the city that was outdoorsy but still comfortable, and this place was awesome.

The house is great. It has a nice mix of country house/cabin feel. The great room is very cool. It has lots of hunting trophies, a wood burning stove, and tons of personality. You can tell the owners care and actually use the place. We spent the majority of our time fishing in the pond, grilling, and sitting around the fire.

The owners are very nice and helpful. Everything was exactly as they described it.

The town is very small. There is a nice liquor store and a grocery store, if you forget something. I would bring food the store has a rather limited selection. While in town make sure you go and spend some time at the river, its very beautiful.

We all had a wonderful time and plan on returning.

GREAT DEAL

  • 4 of 5
This is a great deal in a beautiful area. We went tubing on the nearby river, grilled on the deck and made a fire in the fire pit. It was a great way to spend the weekend. The house is not super fancy but it is clean and has a unique woodsy charm, reminded us of being at summer camp. The owner is really helpful and friendly.

PICTURESQUE PRIVATE HIDEAWAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and friends (including kids), recently returned from a glorious stay here. It was truly a relaxing private hideaway and we highly recommend this property for your next vacation! We had an amazing 4th of July weekend in Hancock, NY and will most definitely rent out this place next time around.

First of all I have to mention that it was truly a pleasure dealing with Karin. She was just amazing and went above and beyond to make us feel like at home and accommodated us very well. She left us a great bottle of wine as a welcoming gift and stocked the place up with firewood and even left us a bag of charcoal and ice to get us started. The place was very well organized and clean. This is a very picturesque place and as a professional photographer enjoyed talking lot's of pics. The town is so close by and they have absolutely everything you need. Don't forget to check out 'Cow lick' (ice cream shop) as I had the best ever milkshake over there. A great place for river adventures and the starting place of a beautiful scenic route on route 97.

It's a hunters paradise with nicely decorated hunting trophies in the 'Great room'. The fire pit is a great addition to the property and we had lot's of fun, especially the kids making smores. There's plenty of room for outdoor games as well and we had fun playing badminton.
