Comfy, Quiet Village Home....Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

Wanted to spend time with extended family who vacation at Green Mansions in Warrensburg and came upon this great rental for our family in Chestertown, only 10 minutes door to door! Joe's home had everything we needed for a few nights stay. Well stocked kitchen, linens, towels, soaps, spices for cooking, coffee and fresh baked scones! Joe stopped by to see if we had any questions about the home or area and when we had an internet issue, responded quickly to fix. We couldn't ask for a better home for our time upstate or a better owner to rent from.....:)

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The home in Chestertown is quiet and comfortable. Joe has thought of everything to make your stay great. I definitely give it 5/5. There is a ping pong table, fire ring, restaurants within walking distance and a great kitchen.

Large home, beautiful area, superb hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have found a better place. 3 adults plus our dog. Large and spacious home, 2 full bathrooms, very large eat-in kitchen with food in the fridge, freezer and pantry that was OK to use. Who knew? We even brought coffee and sugar, just in case. We had a minor car issue, and Joe, the owner, recommended a nearby repair shop. Joe stopped to see how we were, then without us knowing, drove to the repair shop to get the status of our vehicle. Came back to the house to give me a ride to pick it up. Wow! Restaurants, supermarket and drugstore nearby, quaint small town atmosphere, super quiet--we didn't hear one car go by in 3 days. Near Lake George. King and queen beds, more sleeping areas were available. Well-written, easy and thorough instructions, pool table and ping pong in the basement, WiFi, Roku & Amazon TV, Amazon Echo/Alexa...... FANTASTIC!!

Another perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Joe's lovely home from July 1-5 and is a perfect location for us visiting family and enjoying the beautiful Adirondacks. He has all the comforts of home and beyond, along with beautiful artwork throughout and a plethora of books. Thank you for the delicious scones to begin our trip and letting us enjoy your wonderful residence.

Spacious immaculate getaway

  • 5 of 5

Joe was very welcoming and helpful! He provided us with a great guide to the areas sites and eateries. Important information pertaining to your stay was all printed out for you. Beautiful big kitchen with all you needed if you chose to eat in. If you needed anything he was just a phone call away. Joe made us feel as if his house was our house. We would definitely stay at his home again.
