We utilize a cleaning service between rentals, for which there is no extra charge. Prior to departure, we expect renters to leave furniture and amenities where they were found upon arrival, and otherwise leave the place tidy, organized, and ready for our cleaning service to get to work. A detailed departure checklist is posted at the house.

Great-aunt Dora Sachs Sommers built this house in early 1947 so that she and her children - Dorothy, Alice, and George - could spend vacations from St. Paul, Minnesota in the community that she and her parents had come to love since first visiting Keene Valley in 1874. Her parents' house, Waldfried, was located just up the hill behind Dora's, but has since been razed. Her brother, my grandfather, built a house just north of Waldfried and across Rushing Brook; that house remains in the family and is still used by several generations of Sachses.
