this is a very very cute cottage and Diane the owner keeps it immaculately. we stayed there with our two small children and it has all we needed! great garden with tons of outdoor space, comfy beds, cute and handy kitchen (and a dishwasher!!), nice and clean bathroom, cozy living/dining room. it is close to Livingston Manor amenities (especially Main Street Farm and the new brewery are highly recommended). i only give 4 stars for property because it is located on a rather big street, and for value because we had to take care of our own trash and struggled to find a transition station open in this rather small and remote place, drove around for quite a while and ended up driving it all the way back home to NYC and trash it at our home. but nevertheless, we loved this place and would love to return one day again.
