The rest of the downstairs has a large living room with a 65” tv and a large stone fireplace, two dining areas, one with wood beams above that seats 10 comfortably but you could squeeze in more depending on how close you get, the other dining area is smaller and is now located in the living room. There is a separate billiards room with a pool table between the living room and the dining room. There is one large entryway leading to an arched staircase and another staircase in the back of the house leading to the other side of the house with beautiful views. There are two half bathrooms downstairs. A laundry room leads you outdoors to the hot tub and deck. Upstairs is a master king-sized bedroom and attached master bath that many say are larger than their NYC apartment and in excellent condition.

STAY FAR FAR AWAY

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival, the first thing we see is about 10 surveillance cameras all over the home. I understand having a few along the driveway but to intrude on your guests privacy to that degree is absolutely absurd. I have yet too see a home with so many security cameras.

Unfortunately, half of the homes siding was left undone and hanging loose in the back of the property. Because of the construction there were ladders and panels stacked in the back yard and the look was unappealing. Random trailers and tools were laying around the property as well. There was no mention of the home being under construction in the description, nor did Kris try to inform us of the condition of the home before arriving. Unhappy!

We had a horrible experience working with Kris. We had to repeatedly ask for a late check out time on Sunday so that we could spend a little more time in the sun. The best she could do at an extension was 1pm. Her excuses were that she was having “contractors” arrive for further work ON A SUNDAY so we needed to be out by 1. But NO. The only person who arrived was her husband, who was not doing any sort of construction. We did not appreciate the intrusion into our stay.

Prior to our departure we cleaned up after ourselves and did more than the normal guest PAYING A CLEANING FEE is required to do. We left the home w/o damage.

We were ready to leave prior to our 1pm check out time, had the cars packed and ready to go. Unfortunately, one of our friends realized she left her phone inside. While attempting to retrieve the phone the doors (which was equipped with a coded lock to get in and out) were automatically locked and the code to the house changed. This all happened prior to that 1pm check out time. So now we were locked out and unable to retrieve our personal property. We start desperately calling Kris, with no response. After calling numerous times, we get a text message saying “I’m busy and can’t answer the phone.” We retrieved the phone through an open window, and let Kris know. She was rude and unpleasant.

Awaiting our security deposit days later, We asked her multiple times for a time frame without response. She finally does respond and asks us to please leave her alone, she will let us know in a few weeks. A few weeks to inspect the home?? after a long wait she tells us that she’s keeping $430 because we made a campfire that was too big and we used too many towels! Absurd!

NEVER experienced such a careless, rude, unresponsive host.

Very pleasant trip!

  • 5 of 5

This place is huge, which is great for our group! It is close to the waterfall, mountain and lakes. The location is great! Too many good things to talk about, the well-equipped kitchen, the barbecue on the deck, the firework place in the backyard, the pond - we just love it! Also it is very friendly to kids - even a high chair was prepared! One suggestion is if there are more entertainment equipment that will be better. It has a pool table, which is nice. Hope to have more things to do in house!

Overall, this is a great place to stay, and we cannot wait to come back this year or next year!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious property that accommodated our part of 17 adults and two babies very comfortably. It rained most of the weekend we were there, so we didn't get to enjoy the outside too much except for a short walk to the pond, but it looked like it had a lot to offer.

Beyond beautiful! Perfect group getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I hosted my husband's family for his 60th birthday at this beautiful home. The location was perfect and everyone had a blast! The layout of this house is perfect for a large group. We loved dining out on the deck over the rolling hills with a view of the mountain- it was spectacular! With 8 bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms everyone had enough space to relax on their own after a day of activities together. The downstairs layout is perfect for socializing and gathering. The kitchen was really spacious and very well stocked with everything needed to feed a large group. We played kickball in the front yard, made samores down at the fire pit, relaxed in the hot tub and played games on the deck after a delicious dinner. It was the perfect family get together weekend. Thank you, Kris for being so helpful and supportive with my weekend plans. We can't wait to return next year!

Beautiful and spacious home and property for large gathering

  • 5 of 5

Being able to find a large enough space within a reasonable budget to host our growing and very active families of 18 people (10 adults/8 kids) proved to be difficult. We rolled the dice as we hadn't initially considered this region of upstate NY. Within minutes of arriving on a rainy day, we knew it was a great fit. Nobody was on top of each other and the kids had plenty of space to run around. The home and grounds are maintained and within our expectations of this price point. While nobody swam in the pond, it provided entertainment in the form of exploration. The fire pit was great for winding down the day. The bedrooms were large and each one had an air conditioner, allowing for a great sleep in the form of temperature and white noise. Also, the very large kitchen and dining area that was connected to the deck & grill could not have made meals any easier. Finally, the house was well stocked with supplies to allow for normal living (i.e. trash bags, vacuums, food spices, pots/pans, food storage, sheets, towels, etc). Aside from the pluses of the property, the towns in the surrounding area provided additional outdoor activities, along with stores to grab anything we needed. Finally, the owner, Kris, was more then accommodating and was timely with any and all questions throughout the process.

As a group, a new bar has been set. While we would like to explore new places for future gatherings, it's going to be hard to find a comparable place. Bottom line, if your large group appreciates beautiful views, fresh air, ample space, and reasonable expectations, this home will exceed what you're looking for.
