I am available by phone at anytime throughout the stay if a guest needs advice on the house or the area.

This is a casual country place but we like to keep it clean. We are pet and kid friend but please avoid muddy paws, shoes etc.

Coffee Maker: Uses a washable gold filter in the basket. Just rinse or lightly soap the filter after each use- don't scrub! The carafe holds precisely 10 cups- any amount over that will cause the carafe to overflow. Just use the markings on the water reservoir as your guide. There is a grinder on the counter between the coffee maker and toaster oven.

Dehumidifier: Our house is built into the side of a hill. The insulating effect of this keeps the lower level cooler during the summer and warmer during the winter. However, the downstairs can also get a bit moist, especially during the summer. You will find a dehumidifier in the den. Just hit the power button- it does a pretty good job of reducing humidity. A slide-out tank at the bottom can be dumped in the downstairs sink. The unit will automatically shut off when the tank is full.

The Grill: Our Akorn is a Kamado-style grill, meaning more intense heat and an extra-insulated body that stays hot for a long time when the lid is down and with the vents properly set. Things cook quickly so watch out! If you haven't used one before, consider doing a quick internet search for Kamado grill recipes if you want to cook something more complicated. The grates are cast iron. There should be a can of high-heat cooking spray behind the grill. Please clean the grates when you are finished using one of the brushes also behind the grill. It's best to do this when the grates are still warm. Please also put the black cover back on before you leave.

Starting the Grill: We use a chimney starter (rather than lighter fluid) that you will find on the deck behind the grill. If you haven't used one, simply crumple a couple of sheets of newspaper below the chimney, add coals at the top, then light the newspaper. In short order, you should feel heat coming out of the chimney, followed by the glow and flame of the coals starting to ignite. At this point, you can dump the coals at the bottom of the grill.

Ceiling Fan: Our living room fan does a great job moving air around. You will find the switch on the wall on the right side of the couch near the hallway portal. The bottom switch should be in the "on" position. Just press the circular control button on the 1, 2 or 3 speed setting (represented by dots). The center square is the off button. Please avoid the "change direction" button at the bottom of the circle. We keep the fan set on the down draft position during the summer and upwards draft during the winter, which helps circulate hot air trapped near the ceiling.

We had a wonderful weekend at Gail's rural retreat. The house is beautiful, with plenty of room and a great outdoor area. And Gail was a fantastic host - we took her recommendations for a nearby hike, a great local restaurant and a fun winter fair. She was friendly, accommodating and easy to work with. I highly recommend her place for a relaxing trip away from the city!

Gail's Rural Retreat is absolutely what my friends and I were looking for; outdoor rural, indoor modern. This home is beautiful, peaceful and thoughtfully prepared for guests. Gail was super helpful. She has everything broken out to its details. Her explanations were clear and made our experience very easy.

We had such a great time at this rural retreat. Everything was exactly as described and Gail was really great with recommendations and responding to any questions or concerns we had. She recommended a local place for baked goods in the morning and it did NOT disappoint. We even saw cows crossing the road on the way back. This was the perfect house for a weekend getaway. The backyard is perfect for star gazing, too!

Well, Gail owns one of the few listings that is actually BETTER than it looks. What a treat. A truly beautiful, warm and well designed and laid out home that we felt completely comfortable in. We will be back for sure - an easy escape from NYC.

We felt very welcome - Gail's house is located in a very quiet, green part of NY state. It has a lovely high ceilinged living room, and a comfortable, modern rustic feel. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for cooking in, there is a bbq, and lots of options for excellent restaurants. She also left us some local treats as well as easy instructions on how to get to the house. It was the perfect retreat - just off the Taconic (actually closer to Philmont than Hillsdale). And there is a great farmer's market on Saturdays a short drive away (and fantastic ice cream in Great Barrington).

We spent an absolutely exquisite WE at Rural retreat. The place is in the heart of nature, and also close to everything you'd need. The house is really fantastic and perfectly equipped. Gail has been perfect before and during our stay. Definitely the place to stay in the Berkshires, for a WE or a holiday week. Our kids really loved the place and we really had a great time with our friends. Nothing much to add after this perfect WE. Thank you !

My family and I are always on the go. The country helps us slow down and smell the earth. Columbia County is the best place to play, garden, eat, see art, swim, ski and enjoy life!
