About Janet

My husband, Kevin, and I have been married for 6 years and have 2 young boys. I work in hospital administration at a premier orthopaedic hospital in NYC, while my husband owns and operates a local tavern in Highland Falls, NY.

I am a 2004 graduate of the United States Military Academy, so I am especially excited to open our home to the families of the West Point community. We have been honored to foster great relationships with the impressive men and women who frequent our local tavern. We love the idea of now helping friends and family enjoy their time with their cadets.

Janet purchased this house in 2010

Why Janet chose Highland Falls

As a family, we love attending sporting events at West Point throughout the year. Nestled in the beautiful valleys of the Hudson River, we take full advantage of the various outdoor experiences around us. I also admit (guilty pleasure) to spending too much quality time at the Woodbury Commons Premium Outlets.

We also love to walk around the many villages along the Hudson River - from Cold Spring to Irvington - to experience their unique charm and historical significance. Just a short train ride to NYC, we love the balance of easy access to big city excitement balanced with the comforts of home in our quiet, friendly community.

What makes this house unique

Walk to West Point & the quaint Village of Highland Falls. Park-like setting with a large back yard.

Great Location near USMA and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I stayed in this lovely home in June 2018 for 4 nights. While the purpose of the visit was to lay our dear mother to rest at USMA cemetery, the time we spent in this home gave us some comfort in being together vs in cold separate hotel rooms.

The house had everything we needed and then some. The hosts left nice notes of where to find things and had the house stocked with the basic needs, like TP, paper towels and even some food stuffs that were available for use. The patio area and fire pit were a big hit as we sat around the fire each night and reminisced our childhood memories with our mother. We even extended a night and Janet was very kind and accommodating when I called her. :)

Highly recommend this home and we will use it if it's available when we travel back to the area to "visit" our Mom and Dad.

Very comfortable home with plenty of room for our family of five!

  • 5 of 5

This was a charming home, very comfortable and in a quiet neighborhood. We appreciated the updated appliances with plenty of dishes and cooking supplies, since we were there over Thanksgiving. Many unique touches made our stay more comfortable, such as a Keurig (well stocked with pods), plenty of towels and access to a washer/dryer.

We would love to come back in warmer months to use the patio and fire pit!

Outstanding experience

  • 5 of 5

This Hudson Valley home could not have been in a better location. Overlooks beautiful pond and park, near WP entrance, close to restaurants. Very spacious home w/ all you would need on vacation. Only drawback is there is one bathroom, but we got along fine. Great owners. Highly recommend.

This home is very charming, clean and in a quiet neighborhood. Perfect for West Point families!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our long weekend with our West Point cadet The house was close to the WP campus so if you need to run back and forth it's very convenient, and it was comfortable and gave us a sense of home. The owners were available for any questions or help necessary. We will definitely stay here again!
