Fabulous property with fabulous host!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures, while great, do not do this place justice. The property is beautiful and the house is spacious and thoughtfully prepared for renters. The bedrooms great size and all air conditioned, although we didn't need it; the four and a half bathrooms all good sized and well equipped; the kitchen large and stocked with plenty of things for prep, with sinks and prep areas on both sides, a large table in the middle and a large Viking stove - perfect for lots of cooks in the kitchen; the dining room is huge - we had no problem sitting 16 people for dinner the first night; and the outdoor patio with string lights, plenty of chairs and a fire pit (with lots of cut wood) was the hit of the weekend. Alex is fantastic, couldn't do enough for us, and was responsive whenever we needed anything. The ability to have vegetables and flowers delivered from the adjacent farm was a fabulous surprise. We had 18 people staying there and there was plenty of room for everyone and everyone loved the property. One of the best managed and most comfortable rentals ever!

Beautiful home with attentive hosts

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our company retreat. Alex and Linsay were more than attentive and receptive throughout the process to our special requests, and helped figure out logistics for fitting 18 people and the best uses of the space. The home was clearly meticulously and lovingly kept. It truly felt like moving into a home together for a day. We spent time in their spacious yard spaces, talked over a fire on their porch, and all slept soundly. We were able to order catering from Panera and DeCiccos nearby (ended up with way too much food) but felt a little better about it because of their composting system. The house was full of amazing flowers and little notes to give us history and context. If I could describe it in a short phrase it would be, Good Vibes. We were all blown away and felt really privileged to be able to stay there. Also, the bathroom on the first floor was amazing! Check it out.

Definitely would not rent this home if you aren't willing to be careful or have a group you don't think can take care of the space, as it's full of vintage pieces that need a little extra care and caution. We had no issues.

Everything was great!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 16 friends and family who had a little reunion at this place. Alex who was taking care of everything at the house was so great and very responsive if we needed anything. We enjoyed our stay there and were comfortably sleeping in this excellent charming farm house. Although the house is very old it is very well maintained and everything clean and organized. I highly recommend this place if you want a nice getaway.

Cozy country rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with our large family in this expansive yet cozy country house. The home owner Alex did everything possible to meet our needs even going to the point of acquiring a crib for our grandson. Alex was easily reachable and more than pleasant to deal with. The only thing he couldn't fix for us was the weather. I would definitely stay in this home again!

West Point Graduation

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this warm, inviting New York country home. We were in area for our son's West Point graduation. A hectic, emotional and logistics filled week. The Kitchawan Station House truly was our home away from home. We all felt so comfortable and our celebration so special! From early breakfasts in ample and well appointed country kitchen to evenings around the fire pit on new cozy patio. The grounds were lush, green and alive with birds, a few deer greeting us each day. Lawns hosted rugby, football, bocce ball, badminton and many photo ops! Great local market, Decicco, helped meet all our meal planning and catering needs. Alex and Lindsay great hosts, including tour of their farm down the road. We hope to be back! Thanks again for being such a wonderful part of this big family event. You are indelible in our memory!

Warm, inviting, comfortable, "family and friends welcome" private Farm House

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Kichawan Farm House. Step back in time...antiques and New England charm abound. Comfy rooms, ample space, bathrooms aplenty. Our family of 8 (6 adult children) experienced a fantastic extended weekend here as we navigated a West Point Ring Ceremony for our youngest son, a cadet there. Fun fire pit feature caught us with a nightly recap of day's events under the huge trees and canopy of stars. Alex and family could not have been more gracious hosts, attentive to our every need. Lucky enough to snag fresh eggs and veggies from their farm nearby. Alex also helped us with dining options, (Peter Pratt's was a win! ) hikes nearby and general lay of the land. We can't wait to return for West Point Graduation 2017 and hopefully a spring WP rugby game vs. Navy in the Spring as well. Thank you for providing the unique opportunity to experience this precious family time in what felt like home!
