Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful weekend at Bassinova, and couldn't recommend it more! The hosts were very helpful in getting us acquainted with the home, and we appreciated all their thoughtful details, like Sonos throughout the entire house! We will definitely try to come again.

We enjoyed the beautiful pool, the fabulous jacuzzi, the breathtaking views & the well kept landscapes. Richard & Jean were so helpful with everything they are truly amazing!

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I booked Bassanova along with three other couples (and children) to celebrate the new year for a long weekend. The property was gorgeous with amazing views of the Hudson River. The house was clean and easily accommodated our entire party with plenty of room to spare.

Jean made the booking process extremely easy and we had a property manager who was available our entire stay for any questions or last minute requests.

I would highly recommend spending some time at Bassanova. .

My family and I just spent Thanksgiving weekend at the Bassinova Estate and we had a fabulous time! The home had every amenity we could have possibly wanted. The view of the Hudson River especially in the morning was completely breath taking, not to mention a Turkey Bowl on the lawn made the day just as special for all of us. It is an experience we will never forget. Jean and Richard definitely put together a wonderful home and completed it with a list of surrounding places to enhance our trip. I would highly recommend this to anyone, it was truly a great experience!
