The house itself is in a great location and the town has a fabulous vibe to it. However, be prepared for a house which has very old, worn furniture and content. The bedding smelt and some of the utensils were rusty and the crockery mismatched. The house is FULL of their stuff …

Response from Ellen:
I'm so sorry the house didn't meet Helen's expectations. We tried in our description to make it clear that it's not pristine, as we are writers, we don't make a lot of money, and we live here. We are also explicit that the room we only use for meditation has a mattress on the floor. Most people who stay here don't seem to mind that the dishes don't match. We have been systematically washing the blankets--I do think we should be doing it more often, and we will definitely address that issue. Otherwise, I suspect we are dealing with a different set of standards from our usual guests.

Great Location! Just a few minutes walk to the middle of town. There was a little brook out back and the Osopus just across the street. I would definitely return!

Ellen was a great host! Very communicative, provided great recommendations for the area and set up the place nicely for us. The house is located very close to town, but with lots of quiet / beautiful woods backyard and a nice river in the front! We had a lovely stay.

We had a great time at Ellen's place. We loved the river across the street, exploring the beautiful woods in the backyard, and the extremely close proximity to the town!

It was a nice place to stay, quite close to the town and lots of fun things to do around. Ellen provided us with everything we needed. It was a lovely experience and we would like to go back there next year as well. :)

Ellen's place was exactly as advertised, it was cozy and had plenty of space for a family of 5. The Esopus creek was right across the street and town was so close it was an easy 10 minute walk. Great country getaway at an excellent price. Kids are already asking when we can w…
