Zen in upstate NY

I’m typing this from a hammock on the property of a house I rented for the weekend in Germantown, NY.
The owners of this property have taken great care to ensure that your stay here is relaxing and stress free, regardless of the reason. The house is decorated with a rustic elegance, yet offers all modern conveniences. My intention was to escape the stress of NYC for a few days, but when sudden work obligations came up, I was able to tackle them with ease.
Although the house sits close to the road, this is a non issue once on the property. There is a feeling of seclusion and space. In fact, I am planning another trip here in the winter to ski and find the access to the road quite convenient.
There is a wonderful garden here and the owners encourage the renters to take advantage of it when possible. I’m told that the owner is a chef and the well equipped kitchen is evidence of this fact.
The house also boasts 2 wood burning cast iron stoves, a fire pit out back, and plenty of wood.
I highly recommend this property. It’s lovely for one, a couple, or a group. The only downside is that once people discover all the merits of this place, the schedule will fill up fast!
