Beautiful spot, we really enjoyed ourselves

  • 5 of 5

The house was well stocked with a variety of food. It was great to have access to a washer and drier. All the kitchen appliances are new in a nice open kitchen. Our favorite part was the beautiful view from the back yard. We slept 6 people very comfortably. The owner was incredibly responsive with all our questions. Great stay.

A very clean, comfortable and welcoming house - we will be back!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I (and little dog) had a very enjoyable long weekend at Sturgeon House at the end of January.

The house is well-kept, clean, warm, comfortable and very convenient to both Germantown and Hudson. The lady caretaker happened to pass by whilst we were outside and she is really, really helpful. There are very good restaurant choices nearby and the house has full details of these and other local attractions. Don't miss a visit to Olana as the home of the Hudson River School of painting - it's spectacular and a short distance by car.

Bard campus is also near and is well worth a visit. Even better, in our view, is the Clermont Estate (historic site) and within it is Livingston Manor which dates from 1740 and was the home of Robert R. Livingston who served on the committee that drafted the Declaration of Independence.

There's lots to see/visit in the area and the house is a very good base.

Quite Cottage House in Country!!

  • 5 of 5

The Sturgeon House was a perfect getaway for my family. The home is located on a quite country road with magnificent views, lots of privacy. We saw eagles and deer on a regular basis. The yard is huge with a fire pit and horseshoes. The kitchen had everything I needed to cook meals although we used the BBQ on most nights. Most of our vegetables and fruits we bought at local roadside shops. The house was very clean and cozy. We liked that it had WI-FI and cable TV. We visited Olana down the street and hiked the Catskills. John was always prompt in getting back to us to answer any of our questions. I would highly recommend this property if your looking for a country getaway.

Fantastic Cottage in a Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

This little gem is a peaceful getaway nestled between the Hudson River and a fantastic fishing creek. Although we didn't, we heard tubing down the creek is a ton of fun! I spent my mornings fishing for bass and trout in a spot suggested kindly by John, the owner. John was so helpful and checked in with us via text throughout our stay.

We were beyond thrilled to have found a place that allowed our two Labs, Bailey and Kahlua, to stay with us! Our 8 year old little girl highly recommends this place as well!

Highly recommended

Lovely Labor Day Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Although John lives in another state, he is an incredibly responsive and welcoming host! We had a fantastic weekend away at his home, only wish the weather was more cooperative so that we could have taken more advantage of the big back yard. While we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay, it is helpful to note that the second bedroom upstairs (there are two upstairs and one downstairs) does not have a door, simply a screen for privacy. Also, just a note for those looking to share beds, all the beds are singles: two single beds in each room upstairs and one downstairs. The kitchen was spacious and user friendly, and the bbq was a favorite amenity! It's situated near the road, but it is far from busy, so traffic was barely heard. Overall, John's abode made for an excellent weekend getaway! He even responded to texts about recommended swimming locations! Thanks John!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the positive review. We have taken your comments into consideration and now have a queen bed in the downstairs bedroom rather than another single. We have also had internet services and satellite installed. We hope you will come stay again.
