My place is close to The perfect getaway. Hidden in a towering grove of oaks, on five wooded acres and a narrow country road, it's the true antidote for too much city. I've lived here forty years, and I love it. I make a little art, have lots of friends who do too, and music, and food. Feeling tense? Reward yourself with some relaxing time in a comfortable, welcoming house in the woods. You’ll love my place because of the love that went into creating it. Rent a bike and enjoy the roads & trails!

Response from Mike:
Marz - Thanks for your glowing review! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and I do hope you'll come again soon. If you do, you may change your opinion that "there's not much to do around the area" - you'll find Sugarloaf craft village only 15 minutes away; a top flight art & antique auction house there; many orchards such as Roe's; Blooming Hill Farm with brunch on the weekends; Storm King Art Park, Dia Museum, West Point, Front St restaurants in Newburgh, Brotherhood Winery in nearby Washingtonville, and much more! Come back and explore!
