The cottage is situated above our garage, which is separate from the main house. It has its own private entrance, and "wrap around" patio with chairs and table for relaxing outside. A spiral staircase leads to the sleeping loft which overlooks the living room below. The cozy double bed makes for great snuggling, and the fantastic tub provides enough room to relax after a busy day of sightseeing in Manhattan, or apple picking in one of the orchards only 20-45 minutes away. The refrigerator has coffee for your use and the kitchen is equipped with serving for 4.

The main house has a wrap around porch which you can utilize at your leisure. Also, please visit the flower garden on the front side lawn. At the top of the hill is another patio with natural, handmade furniture which is great for lounging during the summer and fall.

Other things to note
I ask that you keep the noise to a respectable level. Please do not have loud get-togethers. Smoking is allowed outside the house, but not inside. Please make sure to clean up your cigarette butts if you are outside. If you use candles, please be sure they are out before you leave. Please turn off the air conditioner when you leave the house and shut off all lights.
Please strip the beds when you have completed your stay. Put all used sheets and towels on the floor in the bathroom and wash and return all dishes. Turn off the lights and the air conditioning and put the keys under the mat by the front door. Please do not allow children up in the loft as the stairs can be tricky and the railing is not child proof. Please make sure all appliances are off when you leave. Please do not rent any movies.
I am from NY and an advertising professional. My husband is from the Canary Islands of Spain (Tenerife) and he is a contractor who has built every inch of our home, inside and out! We have three amazing kids who are either in college or living on their own. Angel and I love being outside, gardening, walking, traveling, cooking and entertaining. Our home has always been the sight of some amazing get-togethers, as our wrap around porch and backyard are perfect for relaxing. We speak Spanish and English and love to travel. In fact, we believe the absolute best education is traveling and meeting all different types of people. Are home is a mixture of cultures, and religions... and we are richer for it!
