Beautiful and peaceful

We had a lovely stay here. It is roomy and quiet and well appointed. Ruth gave us a great bottle of wine and she was a tremendous host. We would definitely stay here again. It is perfectly located between Saugerties village and Woodstock.

Welcome to a beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Ruth made us feel like old friends rather than paying guests, which was lovely. The property is very tasteful, in idyllic setting, clean and comfortable. We loved it!

Beautiful property, wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

Our labor day weekend felt like an oasis at Ruth's property in Saugerties. Her wonderful property sits on several acres of land surrounded by tall trees as well as a lake and mountain views. Walking the property with our two dogs, who absolutely loved it, we felt relaxed and surrounded by nature. The rental is comfortable and cozy with all the basics and a spacious kitchen that is ideal for cooking. We took several trips to neighboring towns, such as Woodstock and Hudson, which are a short drive away and had a great time shopping and dining. Overall, Ruth and Max (her adorable and very friendly German Shepherd dog) were wonderful and gracious hosts.

Laid back hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Ruth's property for a week so that we could have a quiet, secluded place to write as I needed to work on my PhD thesis. We brought our two dogs and they LOVED it, Ruth's property is entirely fenced in so it was great and we could just go out and play fetch or let the dogs jump in the lake. The pool is really nice and it was great to take a break from writing and go swimming in the afternoons. The property is conveniently located in between the town of Saugerties and Woodstock which both have shops and good restaurants. It's also pretty close to Kingston, which is a great town and we recommend checking that out on Saturdays for the farmer's market. Would definitely recommend Ruth's place, it is very quiet and the gardens and property itself are quite picturesque. The apartment is really open and stays quite cool so we didn't have to use the air conditioner very much either.

Exceptionaly Crafted

  • 5 of 5

Ruth is wonderful! She was very accomodating of me and my Family. Her home is beautifully decorated and the landscaping around the house is very well kept. Her home is near woodstock which has some really nice shops and places to eat(check out Garden Cafe). Ruth was always a phone call away when we needed anything. With ample space for outdoor activities or just lounging, this is a perfect for a getaway from the city. Would love to visit her place again in the near future.

Wonderful location for this beautiful home. Tucked way back in the woods with no neighbors to be seen. Fronting on a private 14 acre lake with an available canoe. Minutes to eclectic little towns to shop and great restaurants. The property is to die for with 40 plus years of landscaping and plantings to enjoy. Beyond a gorgeous location.
