Fabulous family gathering location and more!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at the Woodland House for a 60th birthday family gathering of 15. The house is beautifully decorated and clean; landscaping is magnificent. The Black-eyed Susan was abounding in large bunches all around, hummingbirds visited the trumpet plant, lovely shrubs and grasses. The woods in the distance are picturesque, calming and well maintained - very quiet on a dead end street. There are lots of different kinds of chairs to sit in out back and several sections of deck and patio as well as a cute little front sitting area. The fire pit is wonderful for after dark conversations. We had no bug problems. The outdoor grill worked well and has good utensils. Our group of all young and old adults enjoyed the nice basketball area. The place is much bigger than it looks on the website. The washer and dryer came in handy after a trip to the waterfalls. Nice hikes and good bicycling. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you can imagine including spices and oils, lots of pots and pans. Terrific coffee grinder too. There are good spaces for everyone to be together as well as nice areas to have private conversations. The decks off the bedrooms were fun. The master bedroom is elegant! Plenty of bathroom spaces for a big group. Bedrooms all were very private and quiet. The dining room table is handmade, beautiful and long, fitting us all easily. The kitchen is a good size allowing a lot of movement and activity. The floor plan is open but each room feels self contained. If you are working in the kitchen you can still be part of dining room and/or living room conversation. Thank you for a wonderful experience in your well cared for home. We hope to return again! Communication was good, directions were clear, all our questions were quickly answered. The owners made our comfort a priority and were extremely helpful. This is a little piece of paradise!

My friends and I had the most amazing weekend staying at this house for my older sister's Bachelorette Party. The house is absolutely beautiful and is exactly what we needed. All 12 of us had a (very comfortable) bed to sleep in and the property is huge and wonderful. The owners are more than happy to help with anything you need and were extremely accessible to us for the entirety of our stay. We spent most of our weekend in Hudson, which was an easy 20-25 minute drive from the house. The nearby watering hole was also easily accessible and we really enjoyed spending some time relaxing there! Overall, none of us had any complaints about our stay and we would 100% go back!!

Our FAVORITE home to rent!!

  • 5 of 5

I travel with a group of colleagues around 39 weeks/year so we rent a LOT of homes, for a week to 12 days at a time. Not only is this property sprawling, immaculate, comfortable, and perfectly maintained - the owners are incredibly accommodating, flexible, and so KIND! And my two small Boston Terriers have an enormous yard to run around (I think it's their favorite home to rent as well). Every bed in the home (and there are EIGHT!) is extremely comfortable, as are the couches in the living room. I also love the beautiful antique pieces here and there throughout the house that accent all of the modern furniture and bedding to give the whole home an incredibly cozy feel. The dining room table is fantastic. It's perfect for our group, who use it mostly for work at night, as we can have 5 or 6 of us each with computers and laptops open, paperwork spread out, the odd printer or's ideal. The kitchen is my favorite room in the home though. TWO large convection ovens, gas range, commercial sized refrigerator, plenty of dishware, utensils, pots, pans.....this home is truly equipped to effortlessly accommodate large groups. The built-in gas grill on the back patio (that runs the length of the property, with sliding door access from two of the larger bedrooms) works perfectly regardless of the season. I can't say enough about this property. Plenty of parking, space, privacy, it's truly a special home that you won't want to leave at the end of your stay!

Huge Comfortable Cozy House!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house from Friday to Monday for a Ski weekend. We had 12 people and everyone had a bed. Beds are very comfortable and 4 full bathrooms made showering easy. Sheets and towels were included so no need to pack. Kitchen was well stocked which made it easy for preparing dinners. Loved the HUGE dinning room table. We were all able to sit and enjoy meals together. Home was neat and clean. Monica was kind enough to allow our friends to bring their well behaved dogs. The property was great. We enjoyed walking the trails through the woods and found the waterfalls. Monica was very sweet. We had many conversations through text. She was quick to respond to any questions. John & Jeff met up with us the day we arrived, answered questions and offered information on the town, also very friendly. All enjoyed the skiing at Hunter, 30 minute drive. Will definitely contact Monica to book this for future trips.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The house is great: very spacious, clean and cozy. Homeowner prepared for guests everything they could think of. They even left 2 bottles of wine for us. One of the best houses we have ever been for so many years of travelling around. It's 30 minutes from mountain Hunter. We are very thankful to our homeowner Monica for having such a great stay!
