I just wanted to thank you so much for this beautiful home location was great. The photos and decription looked just like the pictures Loved It!!!! Very clean and very well equipped with everything. Mary was so helpful with everything she was great anything you need to know she could help you with as far as nearby attractions I would recommend this home to anyone it was great just didn't want to leave. I was doing a wedding there at the High Hamptons Inn and me and my girlfiends since childhood made a girls weekend out of it and it was perfect I hope to stay here again Thanks again Mary.

Very Clean

We stayed in Retro Metro during October to see the fall leaves...beautiful location. The house was very, very clean and smelled wonderful. Very comfortable and plenty of space for a family of 5. Mary was very easy to work with and we will definitely stay again at the Retro Metro!

Comfortable house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying here with my family and it won't be my last. This house is very well appointed with great style and all the little details. Very comfortable. A country feel with modern touches. And very close to town, shopping, restaurants, hiking. I highly recommend it.

Charming cottage with lots of personality

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Retro Metro and Mary was awesome. She met us on arrival and showed us around the house so we would know where everything was. Easy location to town. Hiking right off the backyard to Glen Falls. A really neat place with some cool modern touches - thanks Mary - everything was great!
