Good but not awesome!!

  • 3 of 5

The house is good, but its not spectacular if that's what you are looking for, it worked for us since we were a large group, It had enough sleeping space but not enough space to hang out as a group, but plenty of outdoor space and since we had good weather we spent most of our time outside. We loved the fire pit and the pool was nice, just too cool for us to go in, but in the summer I think it would be fine

There was plenty sleeping room but some of the beds are old and not very comfortable to sleep on.

The bathrooms are small but functional

The kitchen was nice, roomy and well stocked, having 2 dining tables really helped

Overall a good place for a large group within a decent prices and decent driving distance from NYC

Owner's Response: The pool heater was turned up to its highest level but since it was late September the temperature outside had dropped and it was not ideal swimming weather. There are 4 common areas to spend time in. Most people remark how conducive for a large group gathering that is. To say that the house is not spectacular is a subjective and limited depending on what you compare it with. The beds are a couple of years old and our other guests have had no issues with them.

it is a sweet way to spend a vacation. the house was clean and the pool was delicious

  • 5 of 5

We came with 18 people and there was plenty of room and had a lot of fun. Each room has an AC so we were able to each control our own space. Liked the location and was easily near Tannersville where we speant a lot of time

Great company retreat

  • 5 of 5

Vasili's place was perfect for our 3-day company retreat. We had 12 people total and the house had everything we needed - enough beds, bathrooms, and breakout spaces. We loved the pool and the campfire, and how close we were to grocery stores, restaurants, and hiking at Kaaterskill. Great stay!

Love this house!

  • 5 of 5

My group of friends and I came here last year and loved it so much we booked again this year. It's a big beautiful house on great property (even considering coming back in the summer so we can experience the pool and backyard!). Close to the mountain and to town, would highly recommend!

Nice property, but a bit "rustic"

  • 4 of 5

My group had some very different opinions about the house - some loved it, some not so much. The property is great with a nice large backyard and it's just off the main road between the centers of Hunter and Tannersville. The house is large - three bedrooms on the third floor with a bathroom with shower, four on the second floor with a double bathroom (two sinks, two toilets, one shower, one bathtub in separate rooms). It was a very good size for our group. The (unheated) pool is also a nice size and fenced in.

Other comments ... washer/dryer were great, kitchen was great with good appliance and two refrigerators (very clean), and air conditioning units in every room. There's a large library of books (probably left from the previous owner), and the satellite TV was good. The new grill was excellent.

Now for the 'not so good' - I'll preface by saying I've been spoiled by a series of prior house rentals on websites like this where the homes were immaculate. This one was lacking in that area, which would be fine except for the price. It was more like summer camp - e.g. the showers were in various states of being functional and the bathtub tilts depending where you stand in it. The house is kind of tilted making foosball (the only table game in the game room, which was missing a handle or two) kind of interesting.

Then there were the "little issues". There isn't a garbage can or towel rack to be found. We had do a lot of cleaning ourselves - there was broken glass in the pool from a beer bottle and other beer bottles and garbage near the edge of the property including some pipes and an old fire escape. There's a bear problem and the trashcans weren't bear proof, so our trash had to be kept indoors (the property manager did come and clean the outside garbage). Then there was the dining room table which we needed to extend - only it was very difficult to do so because it was stuck together by dried maple syrup and then we had to clean it up once we did get it open. One of the mattresses was supported by cardboard. The internet barely worked - it's an old DSL router but may be all that's available there. We ended up setting up our own wireless hotspot with a cellular connection which worked beautifully.

If you're looking for a 7 bedroom house with pool in the Hunter/Tannersville area, it does the job beautifully. The house was good, but a few thousand dollars of work put into this house would go a long way.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the thoughtful review. I want to mention that the pool is heated! The glass that was shattered was in a corner of the pool which got cleaned up immediately after it was brought to our attention. The bedframes was also replaced. We are in the process of getting bear proof cans. The county actually ran out. But the garbage can be placed safely in the mud room between the kitchen and the deck.

Such a great getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was so beautiful and the pictures don't even do it justice. It's even bigger in person. The game room, the pool, the huge backyard and the tvs kept everyone entertained and it was in such a nice place.
