Guestbook comments from the owner

We just enjoyed a great weekend at this amazing spot! The view of the Hudson River is breathtaking. The hosts are friendly and very accommodating. The location is perfect for visits to Highland Falls, Peekskill, Cold Spring, and Bear Mountain. What a great place to take your significant other. The romantic sunrises/sunsets alone are worth the stay!

Amazing view and getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The view in the main picture of this vrbo listing is an accurate view of what you see from the oversized window in the living area. We got to see a gorgeous clear starry night the first night. Then dense fog the next morning which was new to us and awesome. Then lightning sprawl across the dark huge sky and on our last morning, we saw a perfect sunrise! It was a full mountain top experience plus we made it over to the Dia: Beacon (30 minutes from the home) which is an amazing modern sculpture and art museum. For eats, we mostly cooked in but enjoyed Andy's restaurant in highland Falls for some great dining food.

Cozy with Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect for our stay. The living area had both couches and a table and chairs. The kitchen had a toaster-oven, coffee pot and small fridge. The entire property was clean and well cared for. We had everything that we needed. The view of the valley was amazing. We even had 3 deer visit us at sunset!

Perfect getaway close to the city

  • 5 of 5

We were really surprised how close this house was to the city. There're a lot of places to see around it whithin few minutes drive. But if you are only looking for a place where you could rest your mind this place is definitely a good choice. The view is unbelievable which you can enjoy from sunrise till the dusk.

The house itself was very clean and beautiful.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Pros: splendid view from the top (foliage, river, bridge, etc. especially at sunset), nicely decorated room, gas-griller outside, poker chip available (and some other board games as well). you could also encounter wild animals like deer. the sky is so clear at night, spot as many constellations as you want.

Cons: no stove on property, so say if you want some spaghetti it would be rather difficult... but I assume everyone gets out for some bbq and grill

no curtain for the living room if you have extra people sleeping on the sofa bed, which is quite bright in the morning...

Those cons could be nothing if you don't really care... In general, great place for a getaway, would definitely come back again.

Thanksgiving Get Away with my two daughters from NYC!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Yvonne and Josh's. Both of them went above and beyond our expectations to make this a great Thanksgiving away from home. I guess you could say we were "needy" guests, but everything we asked for we got without any hesitation, from a contact case to a soup pot to an extra microwave for our Holiday dinner! But to top it all off we had a dead battery when it came time to leave and Yvonne was right there helping us figure things out (with Josh talking us through things over the phone). Who needed AAA when we had help at our finger tips. Outside of the great hospitality, the view, location and actual accommodations could not have been any better. At this time of being "thankful" I do not think I could have found a better gem to stay at. I cannot wait to bring my husband back for a visit. We did a lot of hiking in the area and our only regret is that we wished we had spent more time in the town of Highland Falls. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone considering visiting the area.
