The adjacent property is a great place for weddings/receptions/parties.
The property is VERY NICE and WELL KEPT with 5 very spacious bedrooms. The entire house was SPOTLESS when we arrived - shelves, linens, bathrooms, kitchen and the pool. We had our twin 2 year old there and felt the house was very CHILD SAFE. We made good use of the kitchen as well as the GRILL and even a kitchen aid was available. The view is BREATHTAKING! The owner was extremely RESPONSIVE and receptive to our requests. I would certainly rent this property again.... And again. The only thing I can suggest is perhaps getting new towels (just as an improvement. We used them the entire weekend with no problem)
Wow, the view and pool are stunning! This property was perfect for our small family reunion. We ranged in age from 13 to 92 and this worked for all! Not posh or high end except for the beautiful pool which is meticulously maintained. But comfortable and big enough that we all had plenty of space but no worries about the young people damaging things so we all relaxed! Susan is a most gracious hostess. A minor plumbing problem was fixed in minutes, and when an extra pot was needed we just ran next door to Susan's. The younger family members enjoyed walking to a carnival, and we all enjoyed the fireworks at the close. Another popular activity was taking a short walk for delicious ice cream from a local shop. We grilled and ate outside most evenings. Susan even provides an extra tank for the grill so you will not run out! All and all, this was a splurge, but well worth it. The view and pool alone make this well worth a trip!
The place delivers everything as promised. Stunning views, outstanding pool, cozy rooms.
We were 13 adults sleeping there comfortably, 3 married couples having their own rooms.
Definitely coming back again.
The views of this house just can't be beat. The rooms were spacious, the pool was warm and clean, along with the house being spotless.
Great host, very attentive to our needs. Would definitely come back and recommend!
The home is as listed: 5 full bedrooms, one of which has three single beds (which can be easily moved together for a couple) and a rec room in the basement with other sleeping options. The pool is heated just enough to make it comfortable in late August when the temperature was around 62 at night but not feeling like bathwater during the day. The yard is well kept and the pool is clearly attended to regularly. The house was clean and charming. If you're looking for some sort of modern place with granite countertops and an all stainless steel kitchen then this isn't for you, but I don't know why you'd want to be in the charming area of Cornwall-on-Hudson if that's your idea of a getaway. I would have liked there to be a bit more room in the house: we slept 10, since there were five bedrooms, but aside from the bedrooms there is just the living room and the kitchen, neither of which are large. This wasn't an issue for us since the weather was fantastic, but I can imagine a party that size feeling a bit cramped if no one can go outside.
We had a one year old with us, and the house is more baby safe than most. Few sharp edges, and wires are mostly behind furniture.
I did notice that some reviews were critical of the way Susan runs her rental property. From my experience they were unfounded. She asks that recycling occurs and that reasonable measures are taken to reduce wasting energy. As far as unexpected visits from her, we had none. She had said when we booked that she would like to say hi and meet my baby boy, but she did not come over without calling both the house and my cell first to make sure it was a reasonable time to do so. That was the extent of our interaction in person for the entire four night stay.
She is right that her photos of the view do not do it justice. She should also do better to describe how easy it is to walk to the village! Many of our party did so on multiple occasions for coffee, pastries, shopping, or just to see what a slower life looks like (we all visited from NYC). One friend also came up early in the day before the 3:45 check-in and found lovely hiking trails about a 20 minute walk from the house. I couldn't be dragged from the pool myself.
Damage deposit was returned promptly and in full.
The price is high, but appropriate for the pool, the number of bedrooms, and the location: our drive back to north Brooklyn took one hour and 20 minutes! Believe me- I've checked all over homeaway and airbnb. This place is unique.
We returned again this past Thanksgiving to stay at Susan's Hudson River Home with extended family. Severe weather made our arrival a bit challenging, but we were in touch with Susan and she helped us to make good decisions for travel. She had the house warm and inviting for our arrival. Some of the improvements from last year were the gas fireplaces in both dining area and living room and the fifth bedroom. Susan leaves notes and instructions in certain areas of the home (kitchen, entry foyer, TV) which are most helpful in guiding guests to get the maximum enjoyment during their stay. Our second annual Thanksgiving on the Hudson was even better than last year. House is very comfortable and well equipped to make the stay most enjoyable for varying ages in three generations of our family. Unfortunately, some members of our family caused some minor damage. We were most grateful that Susan handled this incident in a most reasonable manner. We highly recommend this large and comfortable home for groups or families. Location is perfect for us and we cannot say enough about the beauty of the river views, equally gorgeous day or night.
We are in a very historic area..lots of museums to see from George Washington Headquarters to the new Purple Heart museum
very near a huge out let shopping center called Woodbury common.
