Lea and Jeff (and their son, Will) are wonderful hosts. They make sure you have everything you need and far and beyond! The location is fabulous for close by swimming holes, easy trips up the mountain, and an easy and beautiful drive to Woodstock. It is also close to the upcoming Saugerties Village and the Hudson river. Hudson itself and the Olana estate is so easy to get to and well worth seeing. The apartment is great, with two nice and light-filled bedrooms, and a spacious kitchen and eating area - a definite plus for longer stays as mine was. The bed is the best. I want one just like that! And going to sleep to the gurgling stream is peaceful and adds to a good nights sleep. The neighborhood is quiet with lovely evening walks to be had. Hawks and kingfishers abound as well as nesting storks close by. I have had a wonderful summer here and look forward to returning. Thanks Lea, Jeff, and Will for everything. You have been so very kind to me and I am most grateful.

The host couple, Jeff and Lea, are welcoming and accommodating. They will fill you in with delights of the region. Their master bedroom is very comfortable and warm. Their village of Palenville retains a small town convenience with many sophisticated urban pleasures: example is the cozy Country Store restaurant with made to order meals. I'd go back to this home again and again.
