Wonderful little house and great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a week here. The house was very clean, tidy, and had everything I needed. It's nicely situated with a very private yard. I really enjoyed the wood stove and the fire pit in the yard. Sal was great and super responsive with the details of the house, any questions I had, and recommendations for the area. Greenwood Lake near by is beautiful and very peaceful. Sterling Forest State Park is also nearby with some nice hikes and spectacular views. It's quite dark at night (not a lot of light polution) so good for star gazing too. It was a great get-a-way from the city... very easy to get to, some peace, quiet and nature all just about an hour away.

good weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sal was very responsive. House was clean with everything we needs (pots, pans, basic supplies etc). Great location near the lake and easy distance from NYC. Sal was very flexible around departure. Water is not drinkable in the house and has a bit of a sulfur smell, but Sal gave us a heads up prior to arrival. Thanks!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

I was nothing but impressed with this cabin and what the area had to offer. It had everything you need for a great couples getaway. The inside is well furnished allowing you to prepare anything you can think of. There is a grill outside with a fire pit. The owner is great to work with and is easy to contact with any questions that my arise. He has thought of everything you my need on your stay. We have full intentions of returning for years to come.

good place for weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

Sal is very responsible and the house is clean. pretty much everything you need are provided. the only thing need change is the shower faucet, we were able to use it but it would need a replacement as the handler came off when you try to use it. We also found some ants in the house but guess it is due to the woods around the house. Sal definitely very helpful and keep a clean house. we will come back.

Cozy place in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with one other person for a weekend vacation. We were very impressed with the cleanliness, quality, and comfort provided, as well as the area around it. The house is small but very well furnished for its size, making it perfect for two. We were able to cook in the well stocked kitchen, watch a movie, use the wifi, there was extra soap, shampoo, and toiletries, just to name a few. The owner responded to my inquiries very quickly and was very helpful working with my schedule and recommending local activities. He made the whole weekend very smooth and enjoyable. We ate dinner in the local area and traveled to a nearby apple orchard and winery the next day. Overall, this is a great find at a very reasonable price, and we plan on staying again.
