We had a lovely 2-night stay over the holidays with three families with kids. The house is fully renovated and well furnished and stocked with everything you could possibly need (pots, pans, toiletries, towels, games). The property was also really beautiful with great views. We didn’t get great weather for skiing but there were a few mountains very close by. We ended up spending most of the time at the house with a fire in the fireplace, playing board games and making meals in the lovely kitchen, which was perfect for us. Lastly, the owner was friendly and very responsive throughout the booking experience and our stay.

We just came back from JB's boyhood home. Great place. The house is very very comfortable. Everything works, beds are comfy, kitchen is very well equipped, 2 fireplaces, 2 big TVs with Direct TV, wifi works. Loved the location, as we were looking for a calm place away from the city noise. Went skiing to Plattekill which is just 15' away and is a great family friendly mountain. Nice supermarket in Margaretville 20' away. Will be back for sure. Highly recommendable!!
