We are a family that has a vacation home 5 minutes from this home. We have been in the area for 7 years and love it. We hope you do as well. We can share all the fun places to visit when you are here!
Jenifer Crosby purchased this house in 2011
We have enjoyed it ourselves and found the drama of the space very appealing!
We love the views, light and the beauty of the house. The fireplace is very special. The property itself is large and gorgeously landscaped. We even have a vegetable garden which during the season will have vegetables and herbs for the picking! Tennis court along with a basketball hoop
We stayed there for NYE weekend with friends and family. The house was amazing. It was so great to have two separate spaces and the kitchen livingroom area was the pwefect spot for all of us to hang out together. We had everything we needed. The kids loved the game room. The view was great and the property felt so private. Can't wait to return!!
My friends and I have done a "Friends Thanksgiving" every year for the past 15 years. What started as a dinner in someone's cramped apartment has turned into a weekend away full of lots of laughs, food, and drinks! The circle has grown as well, and so we're constantly looking out for house rentals that have the space to accommodate the size of the group, but also feels cozy enough to really just settle in and make some memories. This rental couldn't have fit the bill any more perfectly. The pictures don't do the house justice, especially outside by the lake. The colors reflecting off the leaves on the trees were absolutely stunning and really set the tone for the entire weekend. I can't imagine what it would be like in Summer to take advantage of the massive deck, the outdoor showers, tennis court, and lake for boating and swimming. Even without those things, this house was well worth it! And the bonus house served as great spillover so that anyone who wanted to turn in early could do so to the main house, and then the rest of us could continue to be our crazy, loud selves in the other house. The property manager, Jen, was extremely responsive at every turn and let us know that she was just a phone call away if we needed anything (we didn't - she had set us up perfectly). I really can't say enough about this property and am happy to recommend it!
We reached here in the middle of the night on a rainy day but thanks to our wonderful host everything was perfectly arranged we had no problem finding the place or entering the house. The lights were left on which helped us enter easily. The first expression everyone give was Wow! The description was exactly accurate. A truly beautiful house. The only thing we missed was we did not notice that two bedrooms were in the guest house which was separate. But again that was clearly mentioned but we just missed it (just a small hick up in an otherwise blemish free stay). The Lakeview was incredible. The entire group loved the experience. We had loads of fun playing table tennis, having food together in the dining area, driving around seeing the Fall colors and sitting lakeside relaxing. Special mention to our host Jenifer for being extremely responsive. Overall this was by far our best vacation rental. We would definitely love to visit again
For a group of seven professional women/friends/colleagues, this was a terrific place to spend a quiet and laughter-filled weekend catching up, cooking, and enjoying nature - water, birds, frogs, and flowers - and the surrounding Hudson River valley. The property is well maintained and spacious. As nature-lovers we really appreciated the lovely gardens and the birdsong was truly special. This beautiful home provided the right blend of shared and private space. The various seating options clustered along the path to the water are spot on. We used them all. The hammock was also a big hit.
The kitchen is well stocked and practical. We used the grill and ate our meals outside. We spent a late morning and lunch-time at the Etsy craft market in Hudson followed by an afternoon tour of Olana, in all of its summer splendor and looking down over the river it's just stunning and well worth the time spent roaming around the house and grounds.
From start to finish, we had a wonderful time and we hope to return! Highly recommended!
wonderful experience - house/property was exactly as advertised. very nice, tons of space. the lake was great
What a special place. A group of friends and I go away on a Memorial Day Weekend trip each year, and this time, we picked this lovely property. It was a scorcher over the holiday, so the lake was wonderful to have — we used the kayaks, canoe, and paddleboat to reach the dock and then go swimming. The house has everything and is truly beautiful. Convenient, comfortable, and clean. There are even two outdoor showers — wow!
Perhaps the best way to summarize our trip is with a short anecdote: on Sunday morning, we realized that we couldn't find the coffee maker. Turns out, it had broken shortly before we got there, and was removed from the house. But Jenifer brought her personal coffee maker over right away so we could have coffee that morning, and then bought another one for the house that afternoon. So truly thoughtful, and a step above and beyond what we could hope.
