Great long weekend with family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend stay with family - 5 adults and 4 children (2-7years). Everyone enjoyed the stay. Nice bright family room from where we could see the big children play outside and the little one play in the playroom full of toys (that the big kids enjoyed as well). Pure relaxation. Campfire (s'mores in welcome packet), great outdoor play on the property and fun play structure. Great indoor/outdoor place for children. Quiet. Privacy within the house and outside. Well equipped kitchen. We never used BBQ, and pool was "out of season". No need. Had a fantastic time. Owner is easy to deal with and very professional. Would recommend this house for anyone who needs a great time in the Catskills!!

Fabulous Home

  • 5 of 5

There are so many wonderful things I can say about this house. First off, the house is beautiful and clean. There is so much room for everyone, inside and out. The kitchen is immaculate and has everything that you would ever need. The lay out of the home is also great. While you are cooking, you have a perfect view of the playground. The kids can play outside while you are in the kitchen or dining room and you can hear and see them easily. The bedrooms were also roomy and comfortable. The addition of bunk beds to the master bedroom was also great and the kids loved it. The playground and pool were a great hit. The playground was huge and all four kids were able to play easily at the same time. They also were able to take breaks in the hammock. The pool was heated which made it enjoyable on cooler days and nights.

Aoife was so easy to deal with and really answered all of our questions immediately. Extra thanks to her for the welcoming basket. We were able to make s'mores by the fire pit. Thanks again. We are already planning next summer to come back again.

Wonderful for family vacations

  • 5 of 5

Our family (children and grandchildren) take a yearly vacation together in the Woodstock Area and have stayed in several homes in the area. This is our favorite so far. For anyone with young children it's a dream. Very well outfitted for cooking too. Many places have only the bare bones but this house had everything we needed. The owners simply could not have been more helpful, we loved the pool and the swings and slides on the jungle gym set out back which is larger and more interesting than the pictures show. We are certainly going back.

Amazing ski house

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house- the pictures don't do it justice. Four adults and four kids stayed here very comfortably. Large open spaces that were interconnected but still gave privacy, with enormous windows on all sides. The master bedroom and living room were particularly beautiful, and there was a large kids' area full of toys that our children absolutely loved. The house was spotlessly clean and well appointed (with the minor exception of there being no extra sheets anywhere). The kitchen was stocked with a variety of cooking utensils, pots and pans, and there was plenty of wood for the fireplace. We skied at Belleayre (about a 15-18 minute drive from the house) and it was so nice to come back to this beautiful home when we were cold and tired. The road up to the house is a bit treacherous when snowy- 4 wheel drive was very helpful. I imagine the pool is just beautiful during the summertime. The owners seem very nice and left a bottle of sparkling wine for us to enjoy.
