We are offering the downstairs section of our home Exclusively to parents of USMA/USMAP Cadets. This listing is Not available to anyone who does not have a child who has been accepted into the United States Military Academy at West Point. Booking now for 2015 ARMY football season...Please continue reading below to find out about us and our objective in sharing our home with you! We live upstairs; so this rental is semi-private. Parking for two vehicles; no motor homes. In addition to the private 1 Bedroom area, the Living room has two couches that both pull out (1 is Queen; 1 is Double), and there is also a trundle in the Back Room which doubles as the Dining area. Comfortably accomodates 6. Fully equipped kitchen with stove, microwave, refridgerator, utensils, plates, cups, coffee maker. Unit is designed to reflect the history of the United States Military Academy and to honor those who have served! The main entrance to the Academy (Thayer Gate) is 2 miles from our location.

We welcome you to the beautiful Hudson Valley and we want you to relax in a home environment where you can spread out with your Cadet or Prepster and have a memorable, meaningful visit! You'll be able to cook that homemade meal that your cadet misses with fresh ingredients prepared just for him/her & perhaps a few of their friends! You can return your Cadet with ease, making every second count without the hassle of driving large distances between a hotel and the Academy. Ben is an Associate Athletic Director at USMA; I am a guest Service Representative at the Holiday Inn Express in Fort Montgomery. Ben has lived at West Point for most of his life- his dad was a (R) MSGT stationed here before he retired and set down roots in this area. We are committed to our community and feel so blessed to live by and work for USMA! We have two large dogs..Jasper & Emmett..you'll see them, but we try to minimize contact for Guest comfort. You will have your own entrance to gain access to your section and the dogs will have theirs!..lol.. If you have any further questions, please e-mail me and I will do my best to answer them for you. We sincerely hope to provide you with an 'at-home' location that you will return to again and again during the 4 years that your child will be here, at West Point. That's our goal and we hope to have you as Guests!!

      • While there is only one private bedroom, there are two pull-out sofas in the living room (one is a queen bed; the other is a double/full). Additionally, there is a trundle bed which could, conceivably, sleep two more. Depending on your family's configuration and who can sleep with whom..It is great to have options..But anymore than 6 people downstairs will create a crowd.

                                                                  Cheryl B.

                                                                  Just got home from an amazing 5 days at West Point. Wanted to give a huge shout out to Mary and Ben Russell and their rental home in Highland Falls! Could not have been more wonderfully convenient and perfect. No more than 2 miles from Thayer Gate- made running back and forth to post simple, slept 6 of us, did laundry for cadet, made dinner for a couple extras, epic Wii battle with cadet and his roommates, spent a whole day just watching movies on couches.... never had a need that Mary and her husband Ben couldn't fill. Even shared their labordoodles so our cadet and his friends could get some puppy lovin.

                                                                  Perfect location with everything you need

                                                                  Michelle T.

                                                                  Such kind, caring owners make this rental an easy choice for the future. What a West Point collection they have! We were very comfortable and slept well in the new bed. This is so close to Thayer Gate we ran up to the museum whenever we had a few hours to waste. The kitchen had everything we needed to eat in for breakfast and lunch which we really liked.

                                                                  Wonderful rental, very comfortable

                                                                  Lynn M.

                                                                  Arrived early for some quiet time before Parent's Weekend at West Point. Mary is a wonderful host. The space is quite comfortable and refreshing. Great location near the Thayer Gate. We plan to come back.

                                                                  Perfect rental for a weekend at West Point!

                                                                  Joseph S.Sarasota, FL

The owners had a bottle of wine waiting for us and could not have been more accommodating during our stay. I look forward to staying here again soon!

                                                                  So Warm, so Welcoming---PERFECT!

My husband, myself and 2 sons (one a current Firstie) were so happy to stay here for USMA's Class of 2016 Ring Weekend and we will always remember and cherish it amongst all our West Point memories. Everything was perfect--black and gold wherever it could be--down to a congratulatory bottle of wine for Jon…and Mary so obviously excited for us and happy to share in this event with our family. Wish we were staying here for Graduation! Thank you so much Mary and Ben---for Everything!!

Ben & Mary were wonderful from the night we pulled in after 19+ hour drive. I felt I knew Mary from the past because she is so friendly & willing to sit down with you on the patio and chitchat. The location is perfect to go back and forth from West Point or just hanging out it the area to go hiking. The house is was great for a back to school grill out for my son and friends and of course celebrating my daughter's birthday. Thanks again Mary for making our son's college move in day so nice.
