Notes:
Exercise: there is a stairmaster and a rug that is wonderful for yoga inside. Outside are the pool, running, biking, and hiking. The back fields have trails leading to beautiful walks. Eat apples from the apple trees and blueberries from the blueberry bushes! There is a lovely cat who prefers to stay when the house is rented and comes with a discount on rent. However, she can be kenelled and the house cleaned thoroughly for those who are allergic. Of note, the floors need refinishing and the property is quaint, not pristine.

A stunning property and impeccably maintained home; the perfect country escape

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting this home for a week each summer for five years, and to say we wistfully dream about it yearlong is an understatement. As long time Manhattan residents, we were seeking a country getaway for summer vacations once our children were born and this house has been the perfect vacation spot. The home is perfectly situated among rolling hill countryside in the most beautiful county of NY State. It can sleep a family and several other families as guests easily. The pool and charming pool house are the perfect way to spend a hot summer day - we literally camp out there all day (it is just a walk across the yard from the main house, and has its own bathroom, shower, kitchenette with sink and fridge, plus two twin beds for naps and rest). The master bedroom is very large, and has a private bath with an incredible soaking tub with fantastic views of the tree and hills. The big dining table is perfect for entertaining, and the front porch great for drinks and snacks before dinner. While the house is pristine condition and the scenery beautiful, what really makes this property stand out is the care and dedication of its owner. She has been so helpful, so attentive over the years, I would not dream of renting another property. She has always made herself available - the first year we rented we had a time-sensitive question and she texted me back immediately despite being in Italy on vacation (and it was late at night her time). She has provided me with guidance on how to put up a baby gate, made sure the pack and play was ready, and helped me find babysitters in the area - which made traveling with very young children much easier. I highly recommend this property. You are just a short drive from many farmer's markets and stores, quaint NY towns, and fantastic restaurants. if you are seeking a vacation were you don't have to go anywhere, you have all you need at the house between the pool, grounds and gorgeous scenery. It truly is a remarkable property.
