Catskill Get together
All went smooth.
A very unique and inviting property. A great place to hang out with friends and close to the great town of Saugerties. My favorite was the paddle boat.
The photos are a general representation of this big house, expect to see different furnishings. We arrived at 3:15 and were turned away until our 4pm check-in time. We then went shopping to prepare for a 20 person bbq dinner and returned at 4:30. After a tour that was given by Joe, we got started. As we started to prep the burgers, dogs and corn, we were surprised to find the fully stocked kitchen was not stocked. No spatulas, no big pots to cook the corn on the cob. We used 3 small pots. While our uncle cleaned the dirty grill, we used the multiple sets of tongs/spoons to bbq. We then all sat on folding chairs around the folding tables that was the kitchen table, discussing the yellow CAUTION tape around multiple areas of the pond and wondering what happened there. As the night went on, it got dark out, most of the outdoor lights did not work. Kitchen water pressure was very low which made cleaning dishes a lengthy task, Into the family room, there are 4 ceiling fans, with one bulb each. The couches are old, and there is only 1 small TV in the entire house. The bedrooms are separated into two sections, in the upper section there are 2 (we were told to stay out of the lofts in them?). There is a suite that is a bedroom with a king bed, and a twin, many of the rooms need work. Another bedroom had a queen and a full, which was connected by a bathroom, so you need to walk through the bathroom and another bedroom to get out. There is an entire wall of locked doors, and a big empty fish tank. The second set of bedrooms is around the pool area. We choose the one at the very end, the red room. Bathroom shower leaked, we had to use 3 towels to soak up the water. The other bedrooms around were pretty basic, although my moms room had a very loud exhaust fan. Many of the doors we locked, as we learned when we looked for the gym/fitness room that was not there, no video games, no tennis, no books, broken pin pong table, and no chalk for the pool table, and only 2 lounge chairs on the deck, although the pic show many. You can't get to the gazebo, spa was wrapped in a tarp and unusable. The rental included a cleaning fee, doesn't feel or smell like the house is professionally cleaned. Lastly, Joe was ringing the bell like mad 15 minutes before checkout time, to get us out, not really sure why. The whole point of this trip was to get the family together, and have a great time, which we did, we laughed, and told stories, but we would not go there again.
In response to this review, I want to start off by saying that what you see in the photos and YouTube video is exactly what you will find in the house. Furthermore, this guest stated, “I arrived at 3:15 and was turned away.” The guest was turned away because the cleaning service was still cleaning. Are main priority is to provide our guest with a spotless house at all times. We not only make sure that the house is thoroughly clean, we also clean all the outdoor decks and outdoor grill each time guest arrives. This guest states , “ We then all sat on folding chairs around the folding tables that was the kitchen table,” I ask any future guest that may be reading this response to look at the tour of our house on YouTube which is on our Home Away site or look at our photos to see that this is a completely misleading statement. Since we house so many guests, we set up three 8ft folding tables and folding chairs in the dining room which seat 20 plus guest. This is for the convenience of my guest. These tables are set up in a horseshoe shape with disposable tablecloths. If I put one regular dining room table with 8 or 10 dining room chairs my guest would have to rent 8ft folding tables and over 20 folding chairs. These tables and chairs are not in the kitchen at all, as a matter of fact we do not have any chairs or tables in the kitchen. The kitchen is a workable kitchen with an island and countertop (see photos &video) We only have caution tape in two sections of the pond for the safety of the children that visit our estate. We have six light fixtures in our large living room four of which are fan lights with four lights in each fan. The other two light fixtures have four lightbulbs each. We found that our guests were pulling the strings on the fan lights to shut the lights off because when all the fan lights and the other 2 light fixtures were lit there was 16 light bulbs on in all. We removed 3 lightbulbs from each fanlight however with the other 2 light fixtures on in that room there is still 12 lightbulbs lit. This is a comfortable amount of lighting for a living room. I don’t want to bore you with anymore long drawn out explanations on these misleading statements, however I want to close this response by saying that many of our furnishings are high end antiques and our contemporary furnishings are no older than a year or two. As far as our outdoor lighting it is more than adequate, and we would not have it any other way. All the rooms in our house are painted every Spring and maintained constantly. Lastly, we have hundreds of guests a month most leave our estate pleased and agree that Joe is helpful, kind, and patient while interacting with them. Thank you for your time
