Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

Tom & Cindy are part of the package. Not only do they have the best spot for views of the Ashokan, they are friendly and helpful. Our dog loved running around in their yard and the boys loved the hot tub. We went to wonderful Phoencia diner for lunch and ran into Tom & Cindy which was fun. Rent without hesitation.

Beautiful Vista

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I wanted to have a quick getaway so, we decided to have our stay at Tom and Cindy's beautiful home. Really nice hospitality (always checking up on us to see if we were doing fine or if we needed anything). The best part was the view, especially at night while outdoors in the hot tub! The stars and the moonlight, also the lights reflecting on the water made it felt as if we were in some European country.

You will say wow when you pull up to the house, when you walk through the house, and seeing the view

  • 5 of 5

The house and view are even better than advertised. Perfect place for a couple's (and dog) get away but large enough for families. The house was warm and comfy. The kitchen is large and has everything you need for cooking. The view is just like the pictures and it was a joy to see the sun hit the mountains while having morning coffee.

The owners are outstanding - some of the best communication we've come across during our travels. We felt very welcomed. They even returned some clothing we left behind IN PERSON while they were travelling near our own home. Thank you!

Absolutely recommended.

Best Fall Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing vacation before the holidays and we definitely found it here. Tom and Cindy were very friendly and informative. They had everything in the house we needed for the week. The house was spotless, but I have to say the most amazing part was the view! The entire side of the house is full of huge windows so you have this beautiful view of the catskills any time of day. I couldnt stop taking pictures. And enjoying the view in a jacuzzi was even better! It was all so beautiful and so relaxing.

Amazing location, outstanding hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this beautiful home located on the Ashokan Reservoir and Catskill Mountains. Tom is the most attentive host! He checked in with us everyday and met us at the house upon on arrival. The views are breathtaking. The weather was perfect. We used the grill one night and some of the herbs from the garden!! The location was perfect for us to make trips to Hyde Park, Hudson, Woodstock and Rhinebeck. Thanks Tom and Cindy!

The property was exactly as advertised and the owners were the best.

  • 5 of 5

We were exceedingly pleased with our stay. The pictures on the website accurately represent the property--a modern home with a beautiful flower garden and a gorgeous view of the reservoir. The living areas are spacious and well-kept. While the kitchen is not eat-in, it is well appointed and affords ample room for cooking and storage. Together with our 2 year old granddaughter who visited for a day, we even picked tomatoes in the vegetable garden. One of the owners (Tom) met us at our arrival, and walked us through the house, top-to-bottom, demonstrating all of its workings, including the hot tub on the upper floor. Not only that, we received a text from Tom every morning, asking us if we needed help with anything (which we did not), and suggesting recreational activities.

This is one of the best homes we have ever rented, and highly recommend it.
