Interaction with guests

If you rent a room, we will share the "shared spaces" such as kitchen and living room. We are quiet and Steve is mostly down in the shop area on the ground level and Denise is mostly on the computer. We do have 2, friendly, German Shepherd dogs, who may bark when you first arrive and a wonderful Tabby cat. The dogs will need to be able to get to the yard a various times. This should not interrupt you. Also if you love RC airplanes, Steve will be happy to demo one for you.

Our host had excellent communication and was flexible to our arrival time. They provided all amenities and had a very clean cozy room and a beautiful home. They were extremely friendly and I would recommend staying here.

Loved staying here! House is unbelievable, beautiful, peaceful. Denise and Stephen were so welcoming! Loved the cat and two shepards, Britta and Ava!

Denise was visiting her parents so only Steve was at the house which was fine as we are around the same age with many common experiences to talk about. Steve was busy working most of the time while I was hanging out with friends in the area. But when we were both at the house we shared good conversation and Steve was good enough to fly one of his RC planes for me. The dogs (Rita & Ava) and Kato the cat were very friendly and not at all threatening. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the New Paltz area.

Hi Daniel, Sorry I missed you too! Thank you for your comment about the water pressure. We do our best, but have a water pump for our well which accounts for the fluctuation. I'd love to change it too when we can get enough money in the budget to make it work! : D

Extremely unpleasant experience because host breached the agreement by not providing a/c on one of the hottest nights of the summer! I reached out to both of the hosts to their respective cell phones with texts and voice messeages, and contacted them through Air B&B asking them to please turn on the a/c but they never responded! I was unable to get any sleep while I was there. When I was leaving Denise apologized for not providing the a/c with the excuse that they were not there the night before! Stephen made things even worse by insulting me and clearly showing that he is sorely lacking in both honesty and decency

Response from Stephen Denise:
As I explained to Andy on that day, the thermostatically controlled central AC shuts off when the house matches the thermostat temperature of 76 degrees. Since anyone can go online and check the temperature on July 16-17 (72 at midnight when Andy returned, going down to 67 at 6AM), I don't need to say much more about a review that describes that night as "one of the hottest nights of the summer". I might mention that ALL of the complaints he specifies were made after midnight. We were asleep, Andy, and no, I don't check my email in the middle of the night. When I did see your text message at 7AM and knocked on your door, you didn't respond. I assumed you were sleeping. Your review says you weren't. At any rate, I could have told you to shut all the windows you opened if you answered, so you might have benefitted from the AC. By the way, Denise's response to your claims are "What? I never said that!", followed by some other stuff I won't bore you with. This should make for some fun reading for a few of the guests who have enjoyed their stay at this hellhole!

Stephen and Denise were so gracious and lovely. They went above and beyond by giving knowledge of the surrounding area and suggesting things to do and ways to use their home.

Denise and Stephen were excellent hosts - They were very friendly we had some great conversations. Their two German shepherds were even more friendly we just fell in love with them. The house was lovely and in a beautiful area and the room was very clean and cozy. If am back in New Paltz again I would most definitely stay with them again!!

We are a fun-loving couple who enjoy meeting and hosting new people. Steve flies radio controlled planes and Denise is a photographer. We love our German Shepherd dogs (and you will too), great food, sharing stories, and great movies.
