Tom and Cindy have built a slice of heaven in the Catskills. Both were very friendly and helpful during the visit. The property is beautifully appointed and perfectly situated on the side of a hill, giving perfect views of the Ashokan Resevoir. Daily drive to fly fishing destinations were wonderful. Nightly sunsets on the patio were perfect. Just a wonderful stay. Would love to return someday.

This was our second time staying here. I cant really complain about anything. The views were great, the house was clean and comfortable. The hot tub was just a great bonus. Cindy welcomed us like family.

Catskill Mountain Bliss

  • 5 of 5

This is a one-of-a-kind, custom designed home that is just gorgeous! When I first walked in I could tell the owners care, and put a lot of thought into every detail. It was easy to feel at home and relax. The gardens and landscaping are amazing! The views- spectacular! And how can you go wrong with a roof-top hot tub over looking the Ashokan Reservoir? I was easily lost in the views all during the day and night. We visit family every year in Kingston and will definitely return next year! Thank you to the owners for building this beautiful home!

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.
