We rented this house at the end of May, to allow our son to flyfish in the area for his high school graduation gift. This house is amazing, and you couldn't ask for a better, more private yet convenient location. My son (age 18) took photos of the house and said he wants one just like it some day! The bedding was VERY comfortable, and we loved the porch out back-great views, lovely breeze, and oh so quiet! The owner was very accomdating - great communication from start to finish. I can't recommend this place highly enough - you will NOT be disappointed if you want a quiet place to relax that's close to restaurants, etc. The town itself is very small and laid back - perfect for a relaxing getaway. If you're fishing, check out Hank Rope (lives near this town) as a guide - so helpful.
We had a wonderful time at Mike's Getaway! Ten of us came up for my 30th birthday, had a very nice campfire night and then spent our rainy night on the porch playing cards. The house was great and everyone was very happy with it. Thanks, Mike!
perfect location and facility for a family
we used to travel to cape cod. no more!
Nice stay and good location for visit to Phoenecia
The owner was very helpful and responsive. I left behind a pair of shoes and he was kind enough mail them back to me at his expense. Nice grounds. Could be a little tidier.
Wonderful time! Great location! Comfortable house!
Right on the creek big backyard space with the fire pit. Awesome wraparound deck. Really beautiful views. Mike and his housekeeper make sure the house is fully stocked and ready. Mike was very accommodating when we asked if we could check in a little early to set up for my daughters bachelorette party weekend. There were 10 of us and we were very comfortable there. We had a perfect weekend. I would rent here again.
Cozy but spacious cabin
Perfect, cozy base for skiing at Belleayre! Can only imagine how pretty it must be in the Fall, Spring, and Summer as the deck overlooks Esopus Creek. Thanks for a great weekend!
