House Rules

We love having kids stay, but our house is not child proof. If you'd like to bring children under 8 years old, check with us before booking so we can be sure our house is a good fit. We'll get back to you quickly.

We allow one friendly, well behaved dog guest with prior approval. Check with us before booking. Dogs must be on leash except within the fenced yard. Please pick-up after your dog. We charge a one time $50 pet fee. No cats.

Please use the stone fireplace, not the wood stove. Keep the screen in front of the fire and never leave a fire unattended, inside or out.

Use the outdoor stone grill, it’s lovely. Don’t leave food or trash or bones outside. No cooking/grilling in the fireplace inside. Please don’t put pans, griddle, etc. away with food in them. Help yourselves to spices, salt, pepper, sugar. Otherwise, guests must provide their own groceries. Do not throw away or consume our groceries or beverages. If you need to borrow something replace it in kind.

The casement windows (they swing out) and french doors can be ripped from the house in a storm. Please close them in rain or wind or if you’re going out for the day.

Obviously don't turn on both heat and AC at the same time. Use what you need but please don't leave either on if you'll be out all day.

No smoking anything in the house or on porches. Pick up butts outside.

No third party bookings. Guests who arrive through a third party booking will be denied access, or requested to leave immediately.

No building forts out of the furniture, standing on the furniture, entering attics or roof.

The house is to be used for vacation purposes only. No party, event, or work related use is permitted without prior arrangement. Only the number of guests and pets agreed may occupy the property, including visitors.

Loved this place! Close enough to fun towns but far enough away to feel the peace and quietness you need for a relaxing weekend. We brought our two little kids and our dog and everyone had a great time. Adorable house. Just be prepared to build a fire and smell like a fire if it's chilly out. But other than that it was perfect!

We had a wonderful time at Lisa and Kevin's, and would have happily moved in. The house is absolutely beautiful, designed and furnished with extreme thoughtfulness and taste. We had space to be together, space to be apart, wonderful beds to sleep in, a beautiful, expansive property to hang out in. Lisa is a thoughtful and sensitive host, and a great artist. We were so happy with this vacation. Thank you!

We were looking for an Airbnb close to the location of our son's wedding--and were immediately drawn to The Watson House. The photograph of the outside of the house drew us in initially--crisp and Shaker-like. In person, it was truly wonderful--an airy, wonderfully designed home, amazing fields and gardens, butterflies, views, quiet. Lisa and Kevin had anticipated and provided in advance everything we needed. Wish we were able to stay longer after the wedding -- and were staying there under less crazy/busy circumstances! Very centrally located. A lovely, comfortable, perfect home!

Lisa and Kevin's house was incredible. Spacious, clean, furnished beautifully. Perfect for a group. The kitchen was spacious and had everything you could need. Backyard was green and spacious. Quiet and peaceful. Short drive to nearby towns. Would love to stay again.

Lisa and Kevin's house provided the perfect getaway for a long weekend trip with my friends. We had a great time taking advantage of the wood fire grill in the backyard, morning coffee in the beautiful and airy sunroom, cooking in the spacious kitchen, and hanging out on the screened porch at night. Across the street we enjoyed an afternoon reading in hammocks by the stream. Lisa and Kevin were fantastic hosts who made our stay easy from beginning to end -- everything we needed was thought of ahead of time and easily provided including a helpful guide to the area and surrounding shops and restaurants. We would love to stay here again.

Lisa and Kevin's home was the perfect escape from the city. The interior design is straight out of an HGTV episode coupled with a beautiful backyard that is simply serene. We enjoyed delicious lunches in Woodstock (Shindig, Goods) and cooking dinners at home in their chef's kitchen. We also enjoyed swimming with our pup at Blue Hole. Lisa and Kevin are great hosts, we will definitely be back!

We feel lucky to live in this beautiful area, and love to tell visitors about our favorite spots. We are very country! We have horses, heat our homes with wood from our property, and love to work on our land. We're raising a border collie puppy named Tullah.
Lisa is a photographer based in nyc and a carpenter specializing in restoring 100+ year old houses. Kevin owns a sawmill, making raw edge and rough cut lumber from local tree stock.
