A wonderful well appointed chalet for chilling!

  • 5 of 5

What a well appointed chalet, with every thoughtful touch you could think of! You think those things don't matter, but they do. The stacked fresh towels, the fancy sheets on the already made beds, the condiments in the fridge, the stacks of CD"s, the Netflix account for movies, the waiting bottle of sparkling wine and the box of local, excellent chocolates. They matter.

There is no view to speak of at this site, but it doesn't matter. You have a private, wooded lot with hammock, central air, and a great TV. The beds are very comfortable.

On first impression, the house seems a bit chopped up and dark, but that impression quickly turns to a sense of coziness. There were small irritations, such as difficulty using the local TV stations, lack of lighting in living room, and a light in the bathroom that would mysteriously go on and then- not go on. The smoke detector went off in the middle of the night, scaring the bejesus out of us and the dog. I think there had been no tenants over the winter, thus explaining some of this system malfunction. The water pressure is not great, not unexpected for a property like this. So don't all take a shower at one time.

We appreciated the amenities for our dog, food and water bowl, and a wooded lot for nature calls. There is a lovely dog printed rug as you enter the house, would love to have one like this! We put on music, read, ate, and enjoyed the outdoors with our dog. And Saugerties, our intended destination, was very close, with some great restaurants. Red Onion was a great restaurant nearby, and do not miss Diamond Mill Inn overlooking the falls. Thank you Doris and Lynn for a great time!

Forest Peace NYE's Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Forest Peace. The photos don't do the house justice, its beautiful, comfortable, has all of the necessities, a wonderful fireplace to sit by and a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need. Lynn was super easy to communicate with and was waiting for us when we got there. It's a lovely area with lots to do. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This place is a GEM!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a GEM!!!! We had THE PERFECT weekend staying in this beautiful, charming home. It was clean and cozy and the perfect backdrop for a weekend away. It was really reasonably priced and the rental rep was so nice and accommodating. We had zero complaints and nothing but amazing things to say about the entire experience overall. There are loads of cute shops and local restaurants nearby and we went canoeing on the lake--and even discovered a waterfall. Best weekend trip ever! We will definitely be back.

Quiet and Relaxing. Leave your stress at home.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home. Clean as a whistle. One problem only--No closets or chests for one's clothes. We loved the wrap around deck. Very relaxing after a day at the horse show. Close to horse show but very private. One bedroom (?) was actually an open room over the living room so it offered no privacy and there was no way to sleep there is people were using the living room. Still and all, it is a great house and I would highly recommend it. I will go back there happily.

Forest Peace

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful retreat providing us with a peaceful reprieve from our busy horse show schedule in Saugerties. The property is convenient to both the villages of Saugerties and Woodstock and to some of the great restaurants in the area. Despite it's convenient location is nestled in a private setting that evokes relaxation in the hammock or lounging on the deck or sipping a glass of wine in the well appointed home. Thank you for a lovely week. We will be back!

Meticulous home in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well maintained. It is nicely decorated and very clean. With 4 beds and 3 bathrooms there was plenty of room for everyone. The bedrooms are also laid out so that there is plenty of privacy for all.

The setting is very quiet and private. The kids loved the hammock in the back yard. It was a quick drive (10 minutes) into Saugerties. It was also wonderful to have central air as there was a heat wave while we were there. The owner and the property manager were both wonderful and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this property.
