About The Owner

Hey there- I'm Lily! My husband David and I live in Brooklyn and just purchased our dream house in Upstate New York (our happy place!) and we are so excited to share it with with guests. David is an illustrator, humorist, and architect, and I work in the music industry as a publicist. We also live with our room-mate- a seven pound shih-tzu poodle mix who loves to sit on top of all of the pillows.

We love hiking, watching TV (Game of Thrones, Fargo, Stranger Things, etc) and being in nature. We don't travel often due to our hectic work schedules, but hope to discover AirBNBs all over the world someday!

Gorgeous, spacious house, surrounded by nature.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Nest. Firstly, the communication with the host was fast and efficient. We had no problem neither with reservation, nor with getting into the house: everything was smooth.

Then, pictures are very accurate, yet they don't convey nearly enough how cozy the house is. The abundant light through many windows and wide-plank wood floors make it instantly rustically comfortable. Indeed, feels like a nest perched in woods. The outside area is also amazing: beautiful forest surrounds, changing leaves make it even more spectacular, and some mountains behind even more picturesque. There is a big nice lawn, and a nice sized pool in the back, which was already covered for a season. We cooked on a grill outside during our stay and there is a nice area with a table to enjoy a meal al fresco if you wish. Unfortunately for us it was raining to fully enjoy it. Inside dining room is adjacent to kitchen, which is quite spacious and can easily accommodate several cooks at once. The only things we wished for are wine corkscrew and couple of good chef's knifes.

You can tell that hosts thought about their guests' comfort. Bathrooms were stocked with nice products and fluffy towels. Beds were comfortable, and most importantly the house was very clean. We are very grateful for our experience & would love to stay again at the Nest in the near future!

Incredible stay, exactly like the photos!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a very relaxing weekend at this property. The house looks just like the photos- very clean and you can tell the host spent a great deal of time on making it comfortable for guests. The attention to even the smallest detail, like leaving luxury bath products for the claw foot tub, was apparent in every room.

It was a great weekend to come up - the leaves were just beginning to turn but we were still able to sit out and relax by the pool. We also went to a nearby farm and picked apples, visited a petting zoo, and checked out a couple of nice local restaurants.

The hosts really spent the time to offer plenty of luxury in a beautiful rustic setting. Will definitely be back. Thanks for the great stay!
