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!

A great location, with the best hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a place to settle in and relax......this is it! The location was perfect for everything we wanted to do. The space offered everything we needed and was exceptionally clean. Though we only saw them upon arrival, Yvonne and Josh were great hosts.

Planning to make this stop again!

Beautiful serene private setting on a mountain top

  • 5 of 5

The Host: Yvonne and Josh were very professional, approachable and maintained excellent communication. They promptly responded to all emails and addressed any questions or concerns. Also they value the privacy of their guests. I had to make few changes to my booking and this was taken care in a very professional manner. Also I had a package that need to be shipped to my daughter in WestPoint and since the package cannot be shipped to a PO box the hosts were very kind to receive it for me. This to me shows their care and genuine interest to the needs of their guest.

The Terrain: the house is the last stop on the mountain top. Great views and excellent setting. Very peaceful and quiet. Beautiful natural forest setting. However to get to the top was an interesting drive especially for us flat landers. But the drive in itself was enjoyable. Now more than that if you are a runner like me you will enjoy the challenge. I did the uphill run to the rental place from Montgomery. It was a mile and half but very steep. I did not succeed the challenge after 3/4 mile but this

makes me wanting to come back for another stay in order to win the challenge.

The house: beautiful and simple but filled with warmth and closeness. We were a family of 5 and we did not feel crowded but rather felt bonded. The facilities are great. Every little thing you need for your stay has already been considered by the host and you will find them all including razor, feminine hygiene, simple medications, coffee powder, toiletries etc. they even had a new Chapstick. My profession involves some obsessive compulsive traits and I will vouch that the hosts have paid attention to fine details. Very impressed.

The kitchen has needed utensils but there is no multi stove. There is an electric single hot plate for cooking. We managed well and this is not an issue for us. Thee are sufficient cutlery, plates and coffee mugs. There are beer and wine glasses too. Outside there is a BBQ site. We did not have time to use this. The patio is private and really good.

The cost : I would say it is very reasonable and worth every dollar spent.

The drawback: mostly minor but for completion sake;

1. The steep uphill drive can be at times challenging (but not difficult or dangerous) especially if you have large vehicle. We have a 7 seater but AWD hence it was not very tough

2. At night you can hear now and then the door steps on the ceiling and the running of dogs. But no sounds after 1030pm.

Beautiful treetop retreat

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay, although regret that we did not use the grill and patio for meals. We were attending a West Point celebration and the location was perfect. The Queen bed was comfy for the hubs and I. My 2 grown sons never tolerate couch beds very well, yet, they arranged the cushions for a decent nights sleep. We were only able to stay 2 nights, and only slept and showered so we did not cook a meal. Great coffee and beautiful park-like grounds. The view was spectacular!

Lieu incroyable avec une vue fantastique

  • 4 of 5

L'appartement mis à disposition par Josh et Yvonne est idéal pour un couple, il est arrangé avec beaucoup de goût et de pièces originales.

La vue est tout simplement incroyable !

Les propriétaires nous ont accueilli chaleureusement à 22h30, nous avons beaucoup apprécié.

Il faut aussi savoir que l'endroit est isolé en pleine nature, la route pour y arriver très raide et les propriétaires logent au dessus de l'appartement, on peut entendre ce qui s'y passe !

Il y a des jeux de sociétés, des DVD, des jumelles pour admirer la vue, des parapluies, une jolie terrasse avec un barbecue, une grande douche, plein de produits à disposition à la salle de bain et un très bon chocolat sur votre oreiller. Il y a aussi de la documentation sur les activités à réaliser dans les environs. Un conseil, n'oubliez pas de demander le code Wifi car il n'est pas mentionné dans l'appartement.

Au niveau de l'aménagement cet appartement mérite 5 étoiles.

Nous en avons retiré une pour les raisons suivantes :

- L'appartement était propre et bien nettoyé sauf pour la poussière dans les endroits non visibles au premier coup d'oeil, comme sur les chaises, les meubles en bois la table de nuit, le bureau, il y a beaucoup de fleurs artificielles et de bibelots qui ne sont pas dépoussiérées, dommage ! Les coussins des chaises longues étaient spécialement poussiéreux et tâchés, l'aspirateur sentait mauvais.

- Nous avons été sonné plusieurs fois à la porte des propriétaires pour leur expliquer les problèmes, mais personne n'a répondu, donc nous avons procédé au nettoyage nécessaire à notre semaine de vacances.

- Il manque une cuisinière dans la cuisine, il y a un four micro onde, un petit four électrique, une cafetière et le barbecue de la terrasse

Très bon séjour, à recommander !
