my family stayed over Presidents' Day and we had a great time! It was frigidly cold but the house was cozy and warm. We enjoyed skiing at catamount and cooking and sitting by the fire!
We enjoyed our stay SO much this summer. The owner is very responsive and thoughtful, so we decided to visit again this fall. The home is just lovely in both seasons. Fall foliage is superb and the Farmer's Market nearby was still in season. We spent time in nearby Hudson NY and also across the border in MA -- equidistant to both. Access to the lap pool at the nearby high school is a big plus for us. The house did not get too cold as I had feared. Great property!
This house has a lovely view, front and back, and great outdoor seating space. Charming house with character, a roomy and convenient kitchen and two sitting rooms. The owner is eager to make renters feel welcome. It's an excellent spot if you're looking for a peaceful retreat that is close to good food, culture and hiking.
I spent a long weekend here with my husband and toddler. The house was great, really comfortable. The kitchen was amazingly well stocked, there's a great grill outside that we used each night and a fire pit which was pre-set up for us. Vicki was there to meet us at the house and show us around. She gave us great recommendations of things to do in the area, and even set out a kiddie pool for my daughter. We had a great weekend at Nature's Way and hope to stay there again next summer!
Spent the 4th of July weekend here with a group of friends. The farmhouse is classic, well-maintained, and had an awesome kitchen. Loved the nearby farmer's market and hiking (we especially enjoyed the Audubon Society property just up the road -- beautiful!). Vicki (the owner) was extremely helpful and accommodating. Would stay here again without hesitation.
