Beautiful and Private Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The pictures are very accurate. The house is very clean, beautiful and well maintained. The property is very private and very large. Lots of room for our little ones to run around outside. Perfect place to stay if you are looking for a quiet getaway outside the city. We would definitely like to stay here again.

Beautiful, clean, private and great owners

  • 5 of 5

The property is really beautiful and the house is clean, pretty and comfortable. Everything was there that we could need from condiments and food in the frig, to toiletries and bedding for our comfort. The owners were very helpful and accommodating and it was a wonderful getaway! Only a 30 minute drive to Kent CT, where you can hike and see the waterfall, and close to the Appalachian Trail. My teenage son and I had a great time and would definitely recommend and go back!

Great kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

Your home offered what I had hoped - a nice, convenient location to host my son and roommate from Trinity Pawling for the weekend. The great kitchen and open concept design was ideal for cooking and visiting simultaneously. Loved all the modern conveniences! Thanks for your hospitality and prompt response to my emails.
