amazing house, thoughtful details, great for groups

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing--it's even better than the amazing pictures! We stayed here with a large group, and the space was comfortable, clean, and well designed. I can only imagine the outdoors when the weather is nice. Saugerties offers some good food, drinks, downtown area, a lighthouse, and some nearby hiking. We would definitely stay again!

Lovely property well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Owners could not be more responsive. House was large with nice hanging out space and tons of bathrooms and bedrooms. Beds very comfortable and a fully stocked kitchen. Backyard and front lawn was perfect for running around with the kids. Everyone loved it - thank you!

Wonderful House in Upstate NY!!!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to go with friends or family for a relaxing weekend. Beautiful kitchen / dining area, wonderful fire place, very cozy! Convenient that most bedrooms have their own bathroom--ideal for privacy and comfort. A close drive to both Woodstock and Hudson. We had such a great time!

One of my favourite places on the planet

  • 4 of 5

I can't say enough great things about Hawk Knoll and its location. I first rented it for two weeks in late October, 2010 and couldn't have been happier with the level of service provided by the owner Mark or with the state of the house, which was very clean and well-appointed. I recently rented it for just a short, two-day stay and was very impressed with the improvements to the landscaping and to the interior which have taken place over the last three years.

The house itself is grand but has a very comfortable and welcoming feeling and the views of the mountains from the porch and front bedrooms are nothing less than inspiring. It truly is one of my favourite places on the planet. There's a sense of relaxation the minute you walk in the door and the noise of city life evaporates.

The kitchen has been modernized but the rest of the house retains its original charm, and while some of the tile and fixtures in the bathrooms are dated they're clean and functioning. And I also love the fact that every bedroom has an en suite bathroom.

I've only stayed at Hawk Knoll in the fall when the foliage on the surrounding mountains has been spectacular, but I will be planning a winter getaway this year as I'm dying to see it blanketed in snow. And I'm dying to cozy up to that beautiful fireplace!

I'd recommend this house for a group of friends and family but its also great sharing it with just one other person. Really a true gem.

Our 80-60-80 Gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We searched the internet high and low to find a place for our extended family of 17 to spend and celebrate our parent's 80th birthdays and 60th Wedding Anniversay. We couldn't have found a better place than Arch Hill! The house was beautiful! It had enough bedrooms, bathrooms, and sitting areas to accomodate all of us very comfortably. The big kitchen allowed for several hands to help with the cooking. We spent many a day and night playing games and talking in the big screened in porch. The well manicured front and back lawns was a perfect setup for volleyball, croquet, badminton, and chilling in the adirondack chairs, and hammock watching the children, and dogs play. A huge highlight was the pool and deck to escape the summer heat. To sum it up, our parent's celebration and family vacation was a BIG HIT!

Mark was very accomdating and a pleasure to deal with. We were glad we got to meet him. We hope to visit again in the future.

even better than expected

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I shared this house with 4 other couples during a long weekend and very happy occasion (my son was getting married). Each couple had a beautifully appointed bedroom with it's own private bath. Although we selected the bedrooms on a first come first served basis, we could just as easily have chosen straws - each was unique, spacious, comfortable and lovely in its own way. Although we barely cooked, if we had the time or energy, the kitchen would have served us well. It is large and fully stocked. All ten of us were able to gather easily and comfortably in the living room, on the front porch or on the lawn. The photos only offer some indication as to the quality of the house - it is well decorated, secluded and ideal for a group getaway. If there was a grade higher than "excellent" that's how I'd rate it. We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The wedding was a great reason for renting the house but the house was a huge plus for our weekend.

Historic West Camp is a tiny hamlet a few miles north of the quaint village of Saugerties was found in 1711 at the request of England's Queen Anne to assist the Palatine Germans. While west camp today is a sleepy village with a historic church, post office and fire station and the only sounds other than Mother Nature are the church bells and the occasional whistle of a passing freight train. Saugerties Village has it all: many great restaurants and bars, apparel, house wares and antique shops, a weekly farmer's market, an organic grocer, 2 gourmet chocolate shops, a wine store, salon, apathocary, a movie theater etc.

In the larger Saugerties area you can hike in the Catskills, boat on the Hudson, golf a several area courses, attend the annual Garlic or Mum Festivals, check out the Horse Shows In the Sun (HITS), ski at nearby Hunter or Windham Mountains, tour the local wineries, visit the historic mansions along the Hudson, spend the day in nearby Woodstock village. The amenities and activities at your doorstep are endless.
