New Windsor, New York
Evolve Vacation Rental

The lake was drained which may explain the cheaper picee for the season. Other then that it was very comfortable and clean.
Great venue, my friends and I enjoyed our stay here. It was warm, there was hot water, utensils, cups, plates, towels, etc. The sauna was a little off however, didn't get as hot as we wanted but it was OK, I'm sure it's something that can be fixed next time. We would stay here again, maybe in the summer.
Just needs foam toppers for the beds!
I really want to give this home review 5 stars. But because the beds and sleeping situation is a major part of renting a vrbo, I can only give it 4. The beds are firm. Very firm. Did not sleep well. The mattresses are very old and the beds are pretty noisy/squeaky. At minimum, they need foam mattress toppers. Quick, cheap and easy fix that could make this a 5 star stay. Everything else about the home was great. We flew in during NYs 1st snow of the season so that was a treat for the kids. Despite the cold weather, I took my boys out for a kayak ride around the lake. That was awesome. The grounds are beautiful. But watch out for all the goose poop! The location was perfect for us as it was central to the 3 towns we were visiting (Warwick, Wallkill and Patterson). Not a lot of food options nearby but the Italian restaurant and the Mexican restaurant (forget the names) in New Windsor were surprisingly very good. Place was well kept and clean. Yes it's an old house but we knew that going in and did not mind it. I thought it added a vintage flavor to the stay. I would also recommend setting up the arcade machine for free play. My kids were bummed it wasn't. Would I stay here again? Yes...if they get those mattresses toppers!
It served its purpose
The home, as other reviewers have noted, needs TLC. The beds were uncomfortable. My body ached from poor sleep. There could be better seating options in the living room. The foosball table could be moved to the area the coin operated Pac man game sits. The decore is hap hazzard, nothing matches. There is no inside security lock. Updating this home would go a long way. The grounds are nice, however, we were not here for vacation. We returned home to attend to a family members death. We needed a home base. We used the Washer/dryer for the six towels during our stay. The kitchen came in handy; I donated a crockpot, so that we could have hot meals when we returned home in the evening. Overall, the home served as a base for our agenda. If the mattresses were upgraded it would have been a bit more acceptable.
Comfortable & Quaint
We were looking for a rental house near Woodbury Commons for our "Girls Weekend" shopping trip. This house fit the bill perfectly! We all enjoyed our stay and we look forward to renting here again! The owner checked in us several times to make sure everything was OK, which was much appreciated.
Beautiful house and property!
We had a great time and the house and property was really beautiful. We especially loved the sauna. I would have given this a 5 star but we all agreed that the beds were really uncomfortable. :( But other than that everything was wonderful! We will love to go back in the summer to enjoy the pool and lake :)
