Private and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent one week in Max's beautiful property. The house is located in a little valley surrounded by mountains. There are hardly any neighbors and the peace and quiet is unbelievable to someone coming from the city! The house is lovingly decorated and full of personality. We were grateful for the Wi-Fi but we never turned on the TV - the house is filled with music and we were inspired to listen to music every night and enjoy each other's company. The hot tub is absolutely perfect. I could have spent the whole time relaxing on the deck, watching the groundhog dig and enjoying the view. However, it was too tempting to explore the area - lots of farm stands, good hikes (not super close but close enough) and tubing in Phoenicia (not for the faint of heart!!). The whole process was completely unproblematic and Max was very responsive. A wonderful experience.

True Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Max...on behalf of Rebecca, little Miles and myself, we want to thank you for allowing us the opportunity to experience the paradise that is your home. Rebecca and I are recently married and this was our first chance to really get away...we coined this trip our "minimoon", just a quick trip to get out of the city. But because of the extraordinary warmth and beauty of your home and property and its harmonious setting within the most awesome vision of nature, we truly felt transported to a place that was indeed beyond even the greatest of that nature!

One other thing we'd like to share is that both Rebecca and I are professional musicians (Rebecca went to school for music theater and is a show tunes freak!). To be in a home that not only had external beauty but whose walls were filled with such a genuine appreciation for great music, really took it to the next level for us. Rebecca wailed show tune after show tune on your beautiful piano as I joined her with my guitar and voice in what we hope left our humble imprint on the clear musical air of your home.

From the bottom of our hearts we thank you again for your gracious hospitality and bless you with good health and true happiness in all parts of your life.

Looking forward to reaching out to you again soon

With love,

Rebecca and Mordechai (and miles:)

Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5

Didn't have a vacation in 27 years and needed peace and quite. This place was perfect, the views are to die for. Hot tub was great, my boyfriend loved it here. Close by is Belleayre Mt with lake for swimming and boating, had good time there but mainly enjoyed staying at the house soaking in the hot tub and taking in the scenery. Going to come back again for sure.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this property for a New Year skiing vacation. The owner was very accommodating, we arrived to a driveway that was clear of all snow. The jacuzzi was running just fine and was available for use 24/7. The fireplace provided warmth and relaxation. The house is conveniently located within 15-20 minuted to Belleayre and Plattekill mountains, the drive to Windham took about 40 minutes. We had kitchen utensils to use, grand piano to play, large selection of CDs, books and movies. The house was clean and provided us with everything to live there for a week. Our dog, Traffic enjoyed the freedom to run around the house. The place is secluded, the view is magnificent.

Relaxing autumn getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our thanks to Max for his quiet piece of heaven located on a peaceful property in the valley looking out each day to gorgeous mountain views. The home is comfortable with a wood stove that does a great job of heating the entire floor! A full deck makes for a great sunny place to drink coffee when the weather allows. Our dog accompanied us and loved the freedom to roam the huge yard and visit the front pond, although she isn't a swimmer, she stuck her face and front feet in! We saw deer walking across the road more than once; there are quail strutting about if you're lucky enough to see them; a herd of llamas are down the road and curiously watch as you approach. Relaxing in the hot tub under a sky full of stars is just wonderful. Nearby Mine Kill State Park off Rt. 30 has lots of hiking trails and a waterfall. The grocery store in Stamford is nearby and has everything you could require. We did have a problem with our cellphone reception even though we have Verizon. Also, if you need a hair dryer, bring your own! Otherwise, all is there.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

I found this house for our bachelorette party and it was the perfect getaway. We were looking for a secluded place to just hang out, get back to nature, and do our girl thing together. The house was just the right size, with ample common space in the living room/kitchen/outdoor deck for the 6 of us to hang out in. The piano and hot tub were a definite plus. The view sitting in the hot tub was great - mountains on one side, valley on the other. We had great weather that weekend too and grilling on the deck was great. The house was well equipped, with dishes, utensils, glasses, wine glasses, tools for the grill...we had everything we needed to cool and eat in every night. Also, there were tons of cd's, tapes (throw back but awesome!), dvd's and vhs's to keep us entertained. The house was very clean when we got there, and I really liked the fact that there was no cleaning fee as long as we cleaned ourselves and put everything back the way it was when we got there. The owner was great and very professional and helpful to answer our questions leading up to the arrival date. The only comment I would have is that for outdoorsy people, the closest hiking trail is a 40 minute car ride away, which isn't bad but something to consider. What makes up for it is the llamma farm down the road! I would for sure recommend this place to other people if they were looking for a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.
