Guestbook comments from the owner

We came with two kids in mid-winter, the three bedroom cozy layout was perfect. The backyard is sloping with a fantastic mountain view so it was a great place for gentle sledding. Front yard is fine for playing also. Appliances were immediately replaced when they didn't work and in general, the landlord was terrific about seeing to it that our needs were met for the entire ten days. Short drive to a plethora of skiing and great restaurants. If you have a car & kids this place is highly recommended!

An excellent place to stay and relax!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this house for the July 4th weekend. The house was clean and comfortable. The dining area in the porch was an ideal place to BBQ, relax and enjoy. Thanks to Dennis and Suzanne for their hospitality.

Listing should be updated to more accurately describe what's being provided

  • 2 of 5

The house looks nice but it was quite dirty, full of animal hair throughout, and was missing the essentials such as toilet paper, hand soap, dish soap, hand towels in the bathroom, and trash bags. We purchased everything we needed but were surprised to arrive and not have those things on hand already. We initially didn't realize the owners were right next door and when we did speak with them, they were cordial but informed us the house isn't a hotel. (They came to speak to us about putting too much garbage in the trash bin but it was already quite full when we arrived.) Had we known the essentials would not be provided, and the house really only sleeps 5, we would not have reserved it. As another review points out, there is also a drop in the floor that isn't noticeable and was a constant worry that someone would trip over it. Something to note too is that the power went out a couple of times, but it's a common occurrence in the area and not a fault of the owners. It would have been nice to know all of these things up front so there wouldn't have been surprises.

Owner's Response: We ask you not judge our property based on this review, please see the others. The house is always very clean, and we were never contacted when they arrived about any problem. They had an unauthorized family reunion with over 20 people, brought several dogs and expected us to replenish and clean after their party. The house is not intended for this and they loaded up the curbside trash bins with pizza boxes and ignored the recycling. Trash pick up is every Monday morning. We are very welcoming and hospitable to everyone but do not provide party facilties. This house offers lots of privicy, in a quite residential area on a country road with fences between the houses. Always stocked with 6 rolls of paper tissue and plently of bags, we update new towels and linen often, there is liquid hand soap at every sink which we refill after each rental, we do not supply bath soaps or shampoos. If there is something you need please ask, we are very friendly and respectful. There is a CVS and 24/7 supermarket in town for anything you need. The house is always cleaned has 3 very comfortable Queen beds, we do everything for people have the best experience possible. These people stayed durring a storm when power went out from a down tree in the area it was quickly restored and very unusual. We are always updating furniture and other essentials in the house. There is a small step down in the doorway between the foyer and main living area, not an obstruction. After years of renting this is the first bad experience we had with anyone. Many of the same people return to rent every year. The house is in top shape, we maintain a very high standard and hope you contact us directly with any questions.

Welcoming home, correctly-priced for area and condition

  • 4 of 5

The owners are very welcoming, accommodating and responsive to enquiries. Appliances are modern and work well. In our view, the property is correctly priced given the amenities and condition of the home. The wifi was patchy and one of the bedrooms is on a slant, making it challenging for two people, but otherwise we were very comfortable.

Owner's Response: We have a new router and wifi signal is strong, not sure why they had a problem (maybe from using european device). I tested wifi after this comment and had no issue. The house has been updated with 3 Queen beds now.

This was our first time renting in Saugherties. We loved the way the Living Room , Kitchen and Dinning Room area is all open to each other.The bedrooms are perfect size if we wanted to bring our children next time. Very clean which is great cause I'm a nut about that. They had a large tub with a jauzzi but it wasn't working I wish it had. O maybe next time. Other then that I would stay there again!! Great Home!!!!!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, we do not advertise a jacuzzi tub for this reason. It is a very large bath tub that works as a normal bath tub. We have had it fixed several times only to have to find it gets broken by guests so we no longer go to the expense. We do keep the house and appliences in very good repair otherwise. There is a new flat screen TV, new outdoor furniture and other amenities for guests to enjoy.

Clean and comfortable

  • 3 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in Saugerties. The house was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting in the living area and and relaxing in the evenings. We were pleased with the house, the things left for us and the the setting. We stayed during the height of fall colours and the property and surroundings were absolutely gorgeoous.

A few small changes (that mostly wouldn't cost much!) would have increased our enjoyment.

1-Garbage bags. We had to go out late at night to find an open gas station, so we could line the garbage can. When the basics are provided and we are expected to put the garbage out when we leave, this is a non-debatable item.

2-Waste baskets in both bathrooms. It's not fun to bag and carry bathroom waste to the kitchen all the time.

3-Hand towels in the bathrooms. There were three lovely bath towels but we had to use somebody's towel every time we dried our hands.

4-Tea towels for drying dishes.

5-A teapot. This one is admittedly not a necessity but it would be nice. The other dishes provided were all lovely and I'm sure a basic teapot would be very cheap.

Finally, there was a drop in the floor between one part of the house and another. We put a chair there to avoid breaking our necks (it's a just an inch or two drop but it's enough to trip). Can something be done to fix this or at least to alert people that it's there?

If these things were fixed, the place would be perfect.

Owner's Response: We try to keep supplies and always update towels and kitchen wares. That said, it is a house rental, many consumable supplies are easy to obtain locally. The step is from one room to another, the wood is stained in red so easily viable. This has never been a problem with any other person. Thank you for the review we will make sure to review the supplies in the house and replenish what ever needed.
