“My family and friends all had a wonderful stay at both cottages! Both cottages were immaculate with such charm. The grounds were beautiful with so much room for different activities. The hosts made us feel welcome with breakfast essentials and easy communication. Thank you and we would love to return here!

“Mostly pros to this place. Would recommend it for a quiet, relaxing weekend 2 hours away from NYC. The Honey Cottage was very well maintained and fit 6 of us adults. Would likely be best for 4 adults at most, since 6 was a bit cramped. The 2nd cottage on the property was not rented out while we were there – I believe this fits 4 adults — but would be good to rent the two cottages together for a bigger group of more than 4. The cottage itself was very nice – the linens were clean, kitchen was stocked with fresh fruit, and bathroom had toiletries, shampoo, etc.; all nice touches to make you feel welcome. The swimming pond/creek on the property was nice and relaxing. The main homeowners’ house is on the property but is not pictured in the posting.
The owners and their friends/family were out in the yard during the day. They were friendly and respected out privacy. On our last day, we took a trip to the Saugerties Lighthouse (on the Hudson River), which was about a 10 minute drive from the cottage – it had a nice picnic area and swimming beach for families and dogs. Overall, we had an enjoyable time and would some back again.

“We had a really nice stay and would give this property a solid recommendation.

PROs: Very clean, with well appointed kitchen; Great fishing on the river (creek) and the dam for trout; Wildlife abundant on grounds (birds, deer, etc); Host left some provisions in fridge (nice touch which we appreciated.

CONs: The only major con for us was not washing machine (in the cottage, but guests can use the washer/dryer in the main house upon request), which for us made a stay for more than a few days difficult. It you’re into fishing note the reservoir across the road isn’t accessible. Perfect property for a few days romantic getaway for a couple.”

“We had an amazing long weekend at the French Cottage. The garden is so huge that you don’t see the end of it. The river is right there to cool you down. Everything is very well maintained and arranged with taste and details. The house is super clean, we left our 9 months old play on the floor! Kitchen is extremely well equipped. Our hosts came to welcome us very warmly. We recommend this place to everyone, a true 5 stars! Thanks again.”

“The privacy is great. The place is very clean and very well equipped. And the grounds look great. Softer mattress in the main bedroom.”
