Amidst the verdant, rolling hills and horse farms you can find our log cabin beyond the trees in complete privacy. Large deck, large pool and entertainment area - our home is located on 10 acres of peace and quiet. Perfect for a group trip, gathering of old friends, a romantic getaway or a solo trip– We've lived in many places and homes far grander but this is our paradise on earth. Note – new hot tub in place by April 2018
Wake up to the sound of birds chirping with a light foggy mist traveling over the lavender hill that make up part of our very large backyard. Our little paradise on earth started off as our weekend home and reprieve from New York City but quickly became the one place we always wanted to be! The actual living space is approximately 2500 ft.² but our deck is over 4500 ft.² - we had this made to our personal specifications so that we could entertain friends and family and included every amenity we could think of - Solar powered accent lights, large pool with surrounding deck and covered gazebo, grill with the perfect amenities to accompany any type of party. We love pool parties (just remember that even though you can't see them we do have neighbors – please respect the space after hours). Our sunroom is completely surrounded by trees and offers a beautiful view of a stream which flows below our house (not to mention the entertainment center and dining area – all in one). We have a formal dining room but have replaced it with a pool table...and large French doors which lead out onto the deck.
The house sits on 10 acres of wooded land and reportedly has a mica mine somewhere on it - we have yet to find it (but we haven't actually tried that hard!) While the house is not a mansion, it has beautiful features including brand-new wooden floors made of tiger wood – simply gorgeous – a large entertainment center and nicely appointed bedrooms. The home and property exude peace and tranquility. If you are looking to escape it all and enjoy real country living with all the modern features of the city – our home offers all that and more. We hope you can tell that we love our home and if we lived nearby, we would be living there..
Our house is perfect for a group of friends worn out from busy city living – that's why we originally bought the place. We found that we wanted to spend more time in Pawling than we did in our New York apartment (the Sunday night drive back was always filled with dread and was put off until the last minute) which is also why we are typically flexible with your departure time! If you are repeat visitors we will be happy to give you a discount and hope that you enjoy a weekend full of friendship, memories and relaxation. You definitely will not want to leave.

Guests will have access to our entire home which includes four bedrooms (and a basement room with two single beds for your teenagers), a sunroom, a living room, a games room with pool table, and an architectural masterpiece of a deck made with pure cedar and scaling three levels, a large pool (open from early June through October)–and safety gates for those with young children. Our property has walking trails but mind the ticks! We have a very large and open yard for children and dogs to run and resembles a small football field! We have a large barn at the top of our property which is useful for storage should you want to rent the place for longer stays. Stays longer than three months are price negotiable.
You will be provided with a code on the day that you arrive which will allow you to enter the property. This house does not use keys – punch code only.
Atención a los huéspedes
We we live in another state but we are very hands on - we will help with everything to the extent it is possible. It is key for anyone staying in the home to call us on arrival as our house comes with detailed instructions. As with any vacation home things come up and communication is imperative so that your stay is a great one. We have several points of contact in the area but cannot get help for you if you do not call us early in the morning – this is the middle of the country and nobody comes without a little bit of warning. Please bear in mind when you are looking for something critical – if you don't have toilet paper on arrival you are at least 15 minutes away from getting some!!

Living in the country, especially the New York/Connecticut/New Jersey area comes with some drawbacks – ticks are a huge problem in most areas. However, our proactive stance has paid off –with the help of a deer fence we erected, regular mice control as well as a regular and fortuitous visit from a bunch of wandering guinea fowl, we have kept our tick population low to nonexistent. Please be aware when traveling in the northern United States to always check yourself no matter where you go. In all our time at our personal paradise, we never had a tick bite which tells you a great deal about our commitment to this problem. We have (at this time) five different types of bug spray and suggest you use them liberally when stepping in the high grass.
We are extremely respectful people and would like to invite similar people to enjoy our home. please leave everything in the same condition that you found it. There is a noise ordinance and anyone who creates so much noise that it bothers our neighbors will be asked to leave without refund. We hope you understand that we have had people take advantage of our generous nature – we will not allow our neighbors to be disrupted with late night parties, screaming, loud music playing at any hour. Further, it is imperative that you call us upon arrival. If you do not call us and have a problem with cleanliness, are unable to work the television or the grill – we will not be able to help you unless you reach out to us on the day you arrive. A cleaning lady and a pool service are standing by when you check into our home – if you do not let us know about a problem until the next day or later on that day they will no longer be able to help you. Please in sure you give us a call so that we can help you understand how to use the amenities in our home and avoid disappointment.
If you bring pets, kindly keep them downstairs and off the carpets. We are very reasonable people and generally trust others – we would ask that people keep the noise to a minimum after 10 o'clock, take out renter's insurance if you will be using our pool and refrain from drinking alcohol if you are in charge of young children when near the water. Pretty basic stuff! Our cleaning lady is paid to vacuum, put away dishes, clean the linens she is not there to pick up garbage off the deck or cigarette butts, clean the grill – we ask that you pick up after yourself so that we do not have to charge a larger amount. Please leave the home in the same condition you found it, clean up after yourselves both in and outside the home and let us know if you break something so that we can replace it. Again, we want you to have a wonderful time and most of all relax. Large parties cannot cause a noise disturbance outside – we repeat this so that you understand. If you want to have a party please let us know and we will be expecting you to keep the noise level down after hours and remember that people can hear you even if you cannot see them beyond the trees.
Pets require an additional $100 refundable deposit (should no pet damage to be done to our property).
We have a strict cancellation policy.
Tents on the property are subject to additional fees and are to be discussed.
Large groups must pay for additional guest fees with a few exceptions. Please ask! We have outdoor monitoring to ensure that there are no unwanted guests on the property at all times – if you want to arrive prior to check in please let us know and we will let you know if it is possible – showing up on the property will initiate automatic law enforcement presence so please keep us updated about your arrival and departure times..
If you want to smoke, please do so outside on one of the gazillion decks and clean up after your cigarettes and please dispose of them in the trash can. If you leave food, cigarettes, beer and other garbage on the deck you will be subject to an additional cleaning fee of 75 dollars. Thank you very much for understanding.
I am a transplant from New York City and live with my British husband and charming 10 year old son in Atlanta, GA. Our home has been enjoyed by many visitors and we had a longer term celebrity rental a few years ago which was a fantastic experience. We enjoy meeting new people and look forward to making your stay in Atlanta a fantastic one.
