We enjoyed our stay at this quaint 1st fl. extension of the homestead. We found it amazingly clean for an antique with it's original well kept floors, wainscoting, fresh paint and antique doors. It had charm. The property is the big draw with the rushing river on 3 sides. The…

Response from Bob & Karen:
Glad that you had a great time and made it to Distant Hill. It's not on the list because it's open so infrequently but it's such a great spot, I will do so. My guide is getting so long it'll take most peoples vacations just to read it. I hope the transition to life back in NYC wasn't too difficult. I'll share some other "secret" area tips next time you're around. Have a great rest of the summer.
