Why Alex Glover chose West Harrison
We live in a quiet wooded area. You will feel like you are in the county There also is a patio outside with benches, chairs and a table. The cottage is solar powered. The cabin is one of the last properties left on the border of White Plains that doesn't have an urban feel. You are in a forest. Here you can enjoy all the conveniences of huge yard to play in while being just 3 miles from a major city. There is a beautiful nature walk just down the road you can enjoy in the day and then venture to a happening downtown area at night for the lively nightlife! Also located 10 minute drive from Westchester County Airport. Guests have access to anything they need! I have all the movie channels on my cable subscription. Light a fire and get cozy! I have years worth of firewood you can use! There is an HD TV in the living room & I have numerous board games you can play. It's so very important to me that I give my guests everything I can to ensure they absolutely love their stay here!
What makes this House unique
There is a grill near the cottage (next to my house next door) and you are welcome to use it. Guests are given 100% privacy and left alone but I am available anytime right door if you need me. We have a cleaning service that comes once a week (Wednesday or Thursday). If you stay more than a week, you may text me that you want them to clean the cottage (free of charge). They will bring you fresh towels and sheets also.
100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
Very nice small cozy place
Me and my fiance stayed indoor mostly for time for ourselves. Nobody bothered us, it was secluded. Couple of issues arose but it was addressed immediately. Great place, not too far from downtown area. Not too far from NYC. Would definitely come back for a quick getaway.
The pictures and description are perfect . We stayed with our dog for 3 nights. We loved being in a quiet beautiful area . We
also loved that we were 5 minutes from White Plains. My husband and I used the fireplace everyday. Wonderful wonderful wonderful time!!!
This was a very nice retreat. Both far enough away and yet close enough to NYC. The cottage felt very private. Clean with everything we needed. Alex responded promptly to all of our messages. We travel with a trailer and needed to get as close to the city as possible without getting on the million roads where they aren’t allowed. This location was perfect. 10min Uber/drive to the White Plains stop on the Metro North line. 40 minute train ride to grand central station. Highly recommend!!!!!
Peaceful cottage in the country - yet close to lots!
My husband and our 4 month old baby, our dog, and I had a lovely weekend stay in this cottage! We were in town for a wedding and this was the perfect place to stay- close to everything yet tucked away on a country road. We felt comfortable letting our dog roam in the yard and get some energy out- and he was instantly comfortable in the cottage, which was a first for the many places we’ve stayed! Thank you Alex for a great stay!
Private, quiet, and quirky
I had a lovely early summer stay at this cottage. The facilities were just right for a weeklong visit to events at a nearby college. It definitely beat the relative hubbub of the nearby hotel locations, at a competitive rate.
Only things to note are that the 2 beds are a sofa bed and a Murphy bed (that is, you will have to either open a sofa or pull the bed down from the wall); the approach to the cottage is down a few stone stairs that might require a flashlight at night; and there was an interesting situation with the keys, whereby the manager needed me to leave my key in the lockbox when I went out because there were no extras (I would have preferred to be able to take my key with me).
Overall, this was a convenient, comfortable location where I slept peacefully and felt the manager would respond reliably to my questions or concerns. Would stay again without question.
Beautiful cottage in a yard with a nice fireplace and outdoor area. Very silent in the middle of nature. The owner family is extremely friendly and helpful, I highly recommend for weekend getaways!
