My family spent a wonderful week in Cragsmoor finally getting to spend some time together since we have all been home for so long and we had a very nice, relaxing time. The home is very warm and inviting and the deck and property is really wonderful. We walked to the neighboring stone church where there is a beautiful view of the nearby small town of Ellenville. Diane was a wonderful host and answered all of our questions right away. Though we didn’t have many! The manual is very clear and the home was easy to maintain. Thanks again Diane!

From the moment we walked into Blue Heaven we instantly felt like we were staying at our home away from home. The home is charming getaway equipped with everything you will need. Myself and 7 friends had plenty of space for privacy and gathering for meals and fun. The kitchen was fabulous; every spice, cooking utensil and kitchen item you can think of. We also really enjoyed the grill on the spacious deck.
Each bedroom has plenty of pillows and blankets for all. Bathroom were also spotless and well stocked with towels and washcloths. The back deck and property is beautiful with a clean hot tub that we basically lived in and plenty of deck space for relaxing and nature watching. Having a campfire in February was a real treat as well.
And we can’t forget about Ben! He was extremely helpful maintaining snow removal and any grounds keeping needs we requested. Ben was very friendly and gave us a ton of suggestions on places to visit in the area.
This was truly one of the best rentals I’ve booked and my family and I have been using VRBO for almost a decade. Thank you Diane for giving us a little piece of mountain paradise, we can’t wait to come back!

You can find everything you will need for a weekend at this place. We were a group of 10 people and this house fit all of us comfortably. There are several beds in the house so most of us had our own bed and the 2 couples shared their beds with their significant other. The house has a fully stocked kitchen in terms of spices, dishes, cooking equipment, basic cooking ingredients, which was really helpful because we had brought own groceries to cook with and were able to prepare our meals fairly easily since all the tools were available. There is a grill in the back that worked well for the steaks my group had made and a dish washer to make cleaning easier.
Dining was easy for all 10 of us, more than 10 would have been a little crowded at the table.
The living rooms was SO comfortable with a woodstove in place of the firepit, we spent most of our time here, Diane does a great job of decorating the room to make it feel cozy. There were also a plethora of games and puzzles to choose from but we had brought some of our own as well as a TV with HDMI+USB C adaptor for your laptops.
Spacious living spaces with lots of towels and extra bedding if needed.
The back patio was beautiful the view is amazing since the trees were not covered with leaves and it's very relaxing with places to sit. Also the hot tub was so relaxing, it does take some time to heat up if it's cold outside but when we got there it was at a good temperature and fit about half of us at a time. There's a fit pit and sitting area a few steps down the back patio that was nice because we were able to sit and enjoy the night sky in the fire.
We were not planning on going around the area too much so we didn't explore a lot of it but there is a small town Ellenville about 15 minutes away for groceries and hiking 5-7 minutes the other way from the house (driving), there didn't seem like a whole lot to do around there but we didn't really want to leave once we got to the house.

Gorgeous grounds and well maintained home. We only wish we could have stayed longer! Owner was easy to communicate with, house was beautifully updated/maintained. Deck and firepit area were amazing. Does not map correctly on good maps, house is right near the stone church.
