We had a wonderful stay in this charming and rustic cottage. Good parts: wonderful hostess, charming, quiet-woodsy area, well stocked with supplies, very rustic, loved the patio area Room for improvement: general cleanliness could be better, lots of cobwebs and dust, WiFi did not work at all, perhaps a screen door would help reduce bugs in the cottage Know before you go: compost non-flushing toilet requires men to pee sitting down, toilet and shower are outside accessible via covered patio, bugs and crickets in the shower and bathroom, Little to no cell phone coverage (Verizon)

My girlfriend and I were looking for a romantic getaway weekend and Carol's Echoing Owl Cottage was a perfect match. It was cozy, private and stocked with thoughtful amenities that made our stay more enjoyable. We visited in early Fall so the weather was mild and there was a lot to do in the area. New Paltz was a bit of a drive at around 30 minutes, but it was a scenic country drive and there are small towns nearby with shops and restaurants that look worthy of a visit (highly recommend the Eggs Nest in High Falls).

We really enjoyed our stay at Carol's place as it was cozy and had everything we needed. The location is great and close to hiking, restaurants, and orchards. We appreciated the birthday cake Carol left us. It was this and other thoughtful touches that made our stay that much more enjoyable!

The place was amazing, my boyfriend and I had everything we needed. Plus the outdoor shower was really nice touch in the morning and the private patio was perfect to sit at for breakfast. Carol was a great host and I would definitely stay at her Airbnb again!
