Comfortable getaway for three couples.
Three couples, friends for several decades, were looking for a getaway in the Rhinebeck-Hyde Park area. This house was perfect for us: three bedrooms with queen-size beds--we could have accommodated a fourth couple in the fourth bedroom--with two bathrooms. The house was clean and well-outfitted. There were several comfortable gathering areas: living room, lounge, porch and outside deck which were great places to socialize. The house is conveniently located near Rhinebeck village and Hyde Park.
There were minor problems (which would not deter us from renting the house again). The dishwasher needs attention. It fell out of its bracket when a rack was extended and the kitchen faucet is loose. Also, it would have been very helpful to have written instructions about what to do with soiled sheets and towels and garbage when leaving, but we made do with common sense.
On the whole, a very enjoyable place to stay and good value for the money.
Property is well kept - decorated nicely, and response from property owner was always prompt. More of a city person than rural - not crazy about the house bugs and lack of internet service. Landscape probably looks gorgeous in the spring/summer.
Beautiful country home
My family and I were visiting our sister over the Thanksgiving holiday. We loved staying in this home, it was very peaceful and relaxing with plenty of space for 8 people. Our children had so much fun playing outdoors as well. The home is located within 10 minutes of the heart of Rhinebeck, but offered complete privacy for when we wanted to relax. Theresa is a wonderful host and available when needed. Linens and towels were plentiful. Love this house and hope to return some day.
There were three couples that stayed here for a long weekend. The house was beautifully decorated, very clean and roomy enough where everyone wasn't on top of each other. The beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was functional for preparing meals.
I would just like to make a couple suggestions:
An outdoor gas grill was listed as an amenity, so we brought some steaks to grill the first night we were there. The gas tank was not only empty, it was too old to be refilled.
The fireplace was also listed as an amenity, but we had to drive around town looking to buy firewood to build a fire at night. We did find some, so we were able to enjoy the beautiful room with a blazing fire on the 2nd and 3rd nights.
All in all though, we had a wonderful time, and thoroughly enjoyed the house. I would recommend the house to anyone looking to stay in Rhinebeck.
Pam, Thank you so much for the lovely review. I feel awful that you were not able to use the grill. If you had contacted me during your stay, I would have let you know that there was a brand new full tank of propane in the barn. I would have also let you know that there was plenty of firewood there as well. I don't like to leave either outdoors after the summer just encase of bad weather. Wet, soggy firewood will not help light a beautiful fire. I take a lot of pride in providing my guests with the most positive experience possible. That is why communication is so important. I am happy you were able to rally though, and that you had such a lovely weekend! Kind regards, Theresa
Lovely place in the country!
We all had a fantastic time in this charming home. there was plenty of room and tons of hang out space. We would recommend this place as a great Home Away stay. Our only comment is to update the towels and add a few sharp kitchen knives as we like to cook. Everything else was well taken care of and we enjoyed our stay. It was'n far from Hyde Park, Poet's Walk, Bard College and the Walkaway. Perfect location!
This is a beautiful spacious and peaceful property. It was clean, comfortable and welcoming.
I'd stay here again for sure! And I'd love to stay longer to enjoy the outdoor space -which included a fire pit, a swing, and comfy adirondack chairs!
Located in the center of the Hudson River Valley, this location blends sophistication, country charm and historic preservation, provided a diverse experience any time of the year.
