“Lovely view but house needs fixing up”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

There were some good aspects to our stay that I'll start with. These included a wonderful view from the deck to start and end the day; proximity to the friendly town of Franklin (definitely recommend ice cream at the newly opened "Gone Local" and a meal at the "Tulip and Rose"); great biking on the rural roads; and fun with the games on the bottom floor (shuffle board and pool table). However, there are multiple things that need fixing in the house that we weren't aware of ahead of time but kept having to deal with. The major items included: a leaking shower upstairs that made that shower unusable and flooded the downstairs closet; the dishwasher did not drain; many of the windows were broken so they don't lock or were missing screens which meant a lot of flies in the house when the windows were open; and the hammock was missing pieces so it's also unusable. The kitchen is tiny and really only large enough for one person so for a family that likes to cook together, this didn't work for us. Some of the beds were very comfortable but the futons tended to be quite hard, with one of them having a huge sag in the middle. April the property manager was pleasant to deal with and not surprised when I reported the various issues. Stan, who mows the lawn, was very pleasant and helpful, too. While I think this could be a good place to stay, it's need a lot of updating and repairs before I can recommend it to others.

“Beautiful house! Lots of entertainment!”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in October 2014

I rented the house for my 30th bday and we had a blast and it fit about 10 of us perfectly! The location was also beautiful. We were there in the fall and the leaves were breath taking.

“Brilliant views of New York and countless activities”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Relax in comfort on any floor of the house, go outside for views of New York mountain ranges you can't beat, college towns near by for your entertainment! I am going back for more fun!

A beautiful home surrounded by a picturesque landscape. The home is clean and beautiful with plenty of rooms. AC and heat work well, a pool and shuffleboard table are downstairs. Plenty to do here and lovely scenery. 5/5
