Have to start off with describing what a pleasure it was to deal with Donald and Andrea. Since this is their place, it's treated as if it's their own. Everything was setup perfectly. Kitchen was fully stocked, from bowls/silverware to pitchers, BBQ tools, glasses (wine, water, martini, cocktail), really anything you need. Anyone who's rented a vacation rental knows what a pain it can be when the host doesn't have the Kitchen stocked with the basics. They have the basics and way beyond! From the time we entered the home it was like being in a 5 star hotel! Waters by the bed, spotlessly clean, and immaculately maintained. The house gets sun all day and is cheery and bright.
Location: The house is really conveniently located. We work in the City on weekends and so to the south via the Tapanzee or GW bridge you are only 1 hour. Within 10-60 minutes from a lot of great places. From Sterling Forest, Harriman, Ramapo, Renaissance Fair, Peekskills, Hudson Highlands, Schunnemunk, Stone Crop Gardens, Bear Mountain Park, West Point, Storm King, and more! It's an 8 min drive to Tuxedo Park and some great food (try Tuxedo Sushi or the renowned Dottie Audreys). We were never at a loss as to having things to do or see!
For the techies out there: This is a great house to work from as well! I do technical work, so having charging stations, outlets and good internet are important. This place has it all! Alexa stations in every room, beautiful Televisions, Bose sound system, 5 star BBQ (what's a vacation without a grill anyway??), spacious and roomy for family and friends, bed's were 5 star mattresses (felt like we were sleeping in a cloud!). Instructions for use were clear and easy. Some of the home automation systems in other vacation rentals we've been in were so complicated only I would use while the rest of the family would use their own Bluetooth speakers. Not here! My wife used everything without issue.
Really can't recommend this place enough. We've stayed at some other houses nearby and been disappointed. Poorly maintained, dark and dingy, bad internet, the list goes on. These 2 have done an amazing job, you won't be disappointed!
