My wife and I attended a wedding at the West Lily Pond Farm and needed a place to stay. This cottage was perfect. It is very clean, nicely furnished, with a well stocked kitchen that has everything one needs and has 2 A/C units which came in handy on Saturday night. On Sunday morning, there was a young doe grazing outside the front door. We enjoyed our stay immensely.
We spent 3 days at Fran's cabin and had a wonderful time. It was just the right size for our family (2 kids, ages 5 and 2), and we loved the setting as well. Everything was as good as or better than described. We are city people and it was a real joy to watch our five year old have a blast playing out in the snow, as we watched from inside, which is not something we would ever be comfortable doing in the city. The location was great as well, we took a ski lesson at Catamount and went snow tubing at Wyndham. There's a convenient supermarket within driving distance, so we saved money on meals. It was a wonderful experience, a great Valentine's & President's Day, and a memory we'll cherish. Looking forward to coming back.
We were looking for the perfect cottage away from everything and this cottage was a hidden gem that had everything we needed. Our host, Fran was wonderful and very helpful at answering all of our questions. We can tell she loves doing what she does and making sure her guests had everything they need from activity brochures to menus for ideas on what to do and eat within the surrounding area. As soon as we walked through the doors, we were both in awe and just felt right at home. The movie selection was amazing and even had more available by request – loved it, especially if you planned on staying in on a cold snowy night. The cottage was even more beautiful in person than what is posted on the site – it’s stunning and well maintained all around.
Thank you for being so accommodating and going out of your way to make sure we had the perfect weekend. We’ll definitely have to return again when the weather is warmer so we can use the deck for breakfast and explore more around the area.
Thank you again for all your help.

This rental is perfect and even better than the pics and description! The cottage was clean, clean, clean - no worries there - and the beds were really comfortable. Fran has thought of everything - check out the extensive movie selection (loved Philomena!!) We had a lovely Birthday get-together with my elderly Dad and it was perfect for them as they were able to stay on one level with only a few steps. The front porch is great for morning coffee, chit-chat and just plain relaxing. It was so nice also to have two bathrooms. Fran was especially helpful when our cell wasn't working as we were trying to get in touch with my husband back home - she really went the extra mile to help us. Thanks Fran - we'll definitely be back!!
Stayed here for three nights in August and would highly recommend it!
Very close to Lake Taghkanic State Park and other Hudson area attractions.
The cottage is beautiful! Fran has thought of everything!
Hoping to be back some day!
My family of five had a wonderful time in this lovely little cottage in the woods! The property is beautifully maintained and Fran has thought of everything that you might need while traveling away from home! It felt so homey. My kids loved staying up in the little loft. It was so comfortable and in such a peaceful setting with only the sounds of the nearby waterfall and chirping birds to help you relax and unwind from a busy life! We have family in the area and were in town for a reunion at nearby Lake Taghkanic Park. We will definitely be back and hope that the cottage is available when we return!
