The pictures def don't do it justice.

  • 4 of 5

The property is VERY NICE and WELL KEPT with 5 very spacious bedrooms. The entire house was SPOTLESS when we arrived - shelves, linens, bathrooms, kitchen and the pool. We had our twin 2 year old there and felt the house was very CHILD SAFE. We made good use of the kitchen as well as the GRILL and even a kitchen aid was available. The view is BREATHTAKING! The owner was extremely RESPONSIVE and receptive to our requests. I would certainly rent this property again.... And again. The only thing I can suggest is perhaps getting new towels (just as an improvement. We used them the entire weekend with no problem)

Fantastic Family Renion

  • 5 of 5

Wow, the view and pool are stunning! This property was perfect for our small family reunion. We ranged in age from 13 to 92 and this worked for all! Not posh or high end except for the beautiful pool which is meticulously maintained. But comfortable and big enough that we all had plenty of space but no worries about the young people damaging things so we all relaxed! Susan is a most gracious hostess. A minor plumbing problem was fixed in minutes, and when an extra pot was needed we just ran next door to Susan's. The younger family members enjoyed walking to a carnival, and we all enjoyed the fireworks at the close. Another popular activity was taking a short walk for delicious ice cream from a local shop. We grilled and ate outside most evenings. Susan even provides an extra tank for the grill so you will not run out! All and all, this was a splurge, but well worth it. The view and pool alone make this well worth a trip!

Owner's Response: I am so happy they enjoyed their stay. I do everything I possibly can to insure things go smoothly so it is an enjoyable time for everyone. I have the pool water tested at least once a week and correct the water so it is perfect..I appreciate that being noticed I know it is an expensive vacation but our property taxes here in NY are so high and the cost of running a first class home and pool are the reason I must charge what I do. They were great guests and I hope they will come back.

Amazing place and welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

The place delivers everything as promised. Stunning views, outstanding pool, cozy rooms.

We were 13 adults sleeping there comfortably, 3 married couples having their own rooms.

Definitely coming back again.

Owner's Response: I do hope these folks will return. I was especially grateful for their honesty when they had additional guests and they informed me about this and offered to pay the additional fee. This speaks volumes about who they are. While I mailed the damage deposit back in a timely manner it took almost two weeks for it to arrive from here to Boston. We were able to work it out by my transfering the money to their bank account...then the check arrived later that day. This was handled by this guest in a kind understanding manner. I also appreciated that Lovely group and I hope they came back I am glad they enjoyed themselves

Amazing home- great for groups

  • 5 of 5

The views of this house just can't be beat. The rooms were spacious, the pool was warm and clean, along with the house being spotless.

Great host, very attentive to our needs. Would definitely come back and recommend!

Owner's Response: I am always happy that folks appreciate all my efforts. I have the pool water tested at least once a week to be absolutely certain the pool is clean with out being over "chemical-ed" I also double check the cleaning crews work and try hard to be available and responsive to guests needs and requests. I also appreciate it when folks are careful and respectful of this property so it is nice for the next guests.

Amazing view, secluded without being disconnected

  • 5 of 5

The home is as listed: 5 full bedrooms, one of which has three single beds (which can be easily moved together for a couple) and a rec room in the basement with other sleeping options. The pool is heated just enough to make it comfortable in late August when the temperature was around 62 at night but not feeling like bathwater during the day. The yard is well kept and the pool is clearly attended to regularly. The house was clean and charming. If you're looking for some sort of modern place with granite countertops and an all stainless steel kitchen then this isn't for you, but I don't know why you'd want to be in the charming area of Cornwall-on-Hudson if that's your idea of a getaway. I would have liked there to be a bit more room in the house: we slept 10, since there were five bedrooms, but aside from the bedrooms there is just the living room and the kitchen, neither of which are large. This wasn't an issue for us since the weather was fantastic, but I can imagine a party that size feeling a bit cramped if no one can go outside.

We had a one year old with us, and the house is more baby safe than most. Few sharp edges, and wires are mostly behind furniture.

I did notice that some reviews were critical of the way Susan runs her rental property. From my experience they were unfounded. She asks that recycling occurs and that reasonable measures are taken to reduce wasting energy. As far as unexpected visits from her, we had none. She had said when we booked that she would like to say hi and meet my baby boy, but she did not come over without calling both the house and my cell first to make sure it was a reasonable time to do so. That was the extent of our interaction in person for the entire four night stay.

She is right that her photos of the view do not do it justice. She should also do better to describe how easy it is to walk to the village! Many of our party did so on multiple occasions for coffee, pastries, shopping, or just to see what a slower life looks like (we all visited from NYC). One friend also came up early in the day before the 3:45 check-in and found lovely hiking trails about a 20 minute walk from the house. I couldn't be dragged from the pool myself.

Damage deposit was returned promptly and in full.

The price is high, but appropriate for the pool, the number of bedrooms, and the location: our drive back to north Brooklyn took one hour and 20 minutes! Believe me- I've checked all over homeaway and airbnb. This place is unique.

Return visit for Thanksgiving 2014

  • 5 of 5

We returned again this past Thanksgiving to stay at Susan's Hudson River Home with extended family. Severe weather made our arrival a bit challenging, but we were in touch with Susan and she helped us to make good decisions for travel. She had the house warm and inviting for our arrival. Some of the improvements from last year were the gas fireplaces in both dining area and living room and the fifth bedroom. Susan leaves notes and instructions in certain areas of the home (kitchen, entry foyer, TV) which are most helpful in guiding guests to get the maximum enjoyment during their stay. Our second annual Thanksgiving on the Hudson was even better than last year. House is very comfortable and well equipped to make the stay most enjoyable for varying ages in three generations of our family. Unfortunately, some members of our family caused some minor damage. We were most grateful that Susan handled this incident in a most reasonable manner. We highly recommend this large and comfortable home for groups or families. Location is perfect for us and we cannot say enough about the beauty of the river views, equally gorgeous day or night.
