Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time with our 9-month-old and three-year-old sons, plus our little Westie. Everyone loved romping in the yard and taking canoe trips to the sandy beaches for swimming and fish-spotting. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed (and more! we couldn't have made it through the fabulous record collection even if that had been the only thing we did). The few days we spent there felt like a longer getaway in the best way possible. Mister Basquali was also very communicative and helpful. We highly recommend staying here.

Thoughtful owner that provides all

  • 5 of 5

The thoughtful and helpful owner has provided everything you would need for a family vacation, from the screening room and record player to sport supplies, from BBQ equipment to laundry -- all ready for use. We had everything we needed. We did wish the grocery stores and restaurants were closer, but I guess that's a price you have to pay for the serenity and nature.

Lovely Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here in Putnam Valley! The snow was falling and we hunkered down for a cozy weekend with the great record collection. It was the respite we needed. The property is great in the winter, but I bet it's even better in the warmer months.

Quiet, Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at the Pudding Pad, we knew this place was special. It was quiet, beautiful and comfortable. The access to the lake and to the nearby hiking of the Appalachian Trail via Fahnestock State Park made it easy to enjoy nature while having the luxury of our own space. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a respite from the fast pace and frentic world around them. Additionally, the record collection is dynamite!

Throwback Good Times

  • 5 of 5

It's apparent immediately that this place was designed/created with love. The 70s vibe is beyond rad. The first night my husband and I just had drinks and explored the vinyl collection (which will not disappoint.) We didn't plug our phones in to play music once. In fact, we ended up ordering three of the albums we fell in love with.

If you're curious:

1. Music from the Cosmos, (I recommend this in the morning, while drinking the AMAZING coffee provided.)

2. 25 Years of Jazz, (We hate jazz...but not this bad boy. Perfect to end the night while relaxing in the well thought out, dim lighting)

3. The SalSoul Orchestra non-stop dance album. (Get ready to shake those shoulders and prance around in your bare feet.)

The bed was comfy, the canoe out on the lake was peaceful, and the fire pit was the perfect way to relax outdoors. This place is truly retro-tastic!

Suggestions: Bring layers, it can get chilly at night. Take advantage of the screening room even if you don't want to watch TV. (Try Fantasia via Netflix: the sound is great!) Arrive first, as the pantry has some staples stocked, then backtrack to DeCicco's Supermarket where the liquor store is right next door and 10 minutes away.
