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.

Beautiful, serene cottage close to town

  • 4 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our weekend stay at Aila's Farm in Pawling. The cottage has a very modern kitchen and all the needed appliances and tkitchenware if you want to cook/grill during our stay. We only used the kitchen for breakfast but appreciated that everything was available if needed. The 3 bedrooms were well maintained and clean and included extra blankets and pillows. We also loved that the property had toys and board games that kept our 2- year old very happy.

We had an event to attend at Darryl's house that weekend and this property is ideally located ~10 minute from the venue. There is also a nice supermarket, Hannaford, where you can buy all you need for cooking at the house. We would definitely recommend this property and we will come again.

Private, Cute House Perfect for Weekend Getaway from NYC

  • 5 of 5

Great hosts, quick to respond to questions when booking, and Sarka left a bowl of fruit and water in the fridge upon our arrival. The house is represented well in the pictures. It is clean, comfortable and private, everything that we were looking for in a weekend getaway. The area is quiet and quaint (there are properties on either side, we didn't see anyone while we were at the house) but close to the cute town of Pawling. Although it was made very clear in the description and contract, the only drawback is that there is no working fireplace - there's just something about sitting next to a crackling fire that is necessary in an upstate cabin. We would definitely recommend the house and hope to possibly visit again soon. It was so relaxing!!

Owner's Response: Dear Renee! Thank you for taking time to write your review! Agree, it would be great to have the fireplace in service, but we have to wait till spring to do that. Happy New Year!
