We made a quick decision to visit the Catskill Mountains. Stephen's hospitality and his gracious and comfortable apartment were a perfect complement to this beautiful part of the world. We were able to enjoy a snowfall one evening while being cosy and comfortable inside, with good facilities, excellent beds, interesting furnishings, (including paintings of the local area), spot on inside temperature setting, and good sound system and selections of CDs. The history of the house, the excellent local restaurant (Peekamoose) and the small brook just down the road all added to a memorable experience. The apartment had great natural lighting with windows on three sides and the kitchen was amply outfitted. We highly recommend this apartment.

Fine location for hiking or probably fishing (didn't, but others in guestbook did). Stephen is a great host, place is clean, big, comfortable. Just watch out - cell coverage is totally hit or miss (wi-fi was ok and Stephen provides a handy landline), I guess we'll know next time!

Stephens place is an amazing way to get out of the city. In close proximity to lots of great hikes and scenery. We did giant ledge which has amazing views, and the trailhead is 10 min down the road. Property is beautiful and rooms were clean with a full kitchen.

We stayed at Stephen's place for one night while we were in the area for a friend's wedding. Everything was very clean and cozy and we enjoyed all the little homey touches, like the library and the music collection :) Stephen and his mother were fantastic hosts and if we are ever in the area we will definitely be back!

Spent a quick night at Stephens place, and we were very satisfied with our booking. Stephen was very quick to respond to any questions we had regarding our stay. Check in was very easy, and our accommodations were cozy. The full kitchen was very nice, and as a nice personal touch, light snacks were provided. Stephens mother June is a sweetheart, and my boyfriend was very happy to play piano for her in the morning. While our stay was very short, we'd love to visit again if we are in the area! Thank you Stephen for your hospitality
