About the property

We are in contract to sell the house, please no inquiries. I am working with VRBO to hide the listing from vacationers.

We enjoyed sharing our home over the years for West Point events, weddings, family reunions, a movie crew who was filming in Cold Spring, a pyrotechnic expert from California, and many other interesting people.

Sorry to keep gabbing, but VRBO requires a minimum of 400 characters in this field!! Ha, I got there - thanks again!!

The best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation ever while spending a week in Highland Falls and West Point.

Our son flew in from Seattle with his girlfriend and our daughter and husband came in from Brooklyn.

We loved the house, the relaxing fireplace, how clean and neat every room in the house was.

The owners kept in touch with us prior to our visit and even put out holiday decorations making for a wonderful atmosphere for the entire visit. We planned to visit NYC but decided to spend the entire week in the house playing games, watching movies and enjoying the beautiful fireplace. The sleeping accommodations were perfect with plenty of room for eveyone.

We enjoyed the new Italian restaurant in town and had dinner there twice. The house had everything we needed to fix breakfast each morning and a wonderful Christmas day dinner. The beautiful sun porch warms up nicely when the sun is out. We spent several afternoons relaxing out there.

We would definitely stay again and enjoyed everything about Highland Falls, West Point and Bear Mountain.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that your Holiday stay worked out for you. Thank you so much for your enthusiastic review. It's great that Ermirios opened right before you came to stay and you were able to go there for dinner. I will let the owner (our son's best friend) know! We hope you are able to return before we sell the house.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Great home with plenty of room and amenities, especially if you're visiting USMA! The owners provided all the info needed and we wanted for nothing in the home itself. Sure hope we get the opportunity to use it again! PS--the fall colors-->WOW!!

Great location, cute house, awesome service

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in West Point, thanks to the house, location, and landlord. Donna was very responsive and even helped us find a babysitter so that we could attend a wedding without the kids. The house is super cute and has everything you need. The beds were comfortable, and we all enjoyed playing pool. The kids loved that the house is across from a park with a playground, baseball fields, and a lake – and we loved that it was only 2 blocks off of Main Street.

Cozy and Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We found this property clean, cozy, and functional. 4 bedrooms with clean bedding, great kitchen, washer, and dryer. My boys enjoyed the basement room with pool table. We were there (with my extended family) for a West Point event and we found the location very convenient. The neighborhood is charming with a pretty park across the way. When we first arrived (from California) we were struck by the heat and humidity. The house does not have central AC, but the individual AC units and ceiling fans for each room kept the rooms pretty cool. The owner, Donna, is very responsive and was very easy to work with. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the positive review!! We were there for the month of July, and the weather was even more brutal. We did purchase an extra air conditioner as a result, so I am glad it worked out for you, too.
