Enjoyed my long weekend on the river. Even got to see some snow! Convenient location to get to many great spots in the area. Took me a couple days to get used to trains at night but overall a very cozy warm house with a comfy bed. Washer and dryer a plus.
Perfectly suited for our needs
Detailed listing and photos helped us confirm the space was right for us. Pre-booking communication was prompt and our questions were quickly answered. Property was as-listed & exactly what we needed. Location was great for our weekend plans at West Point. We will book again.
Upon arriving we had to wash the sheets on the beds because there were shells and dead bugs on top and under them. We left a bag of them on the plant stand. Mouse droppings were everywhere, including on the beds.
We left a tomato on the counter to ripen; before we were aware of the infestation. When we went to slice it we found the tomato had been eaten through to the center and all the seeds were gone. This is common with rodents as they go for the seeds because of their nutritious value.
On the last day we left the mouse droppings as we found them so the owner would be aware of the infestation problem. I truly hope she didn't rent the place out knowing she had mice. Mice carry fleas and other diseases and she is risking the health of all she rents too.
The water pressure was substandard and the smell was overwhelming. Showering was a chore.
There is mold everywhere and to such a degree that it is an immediate health hazard. If you have mold in the basement it carries up to the house presenting a significant hazard throughout the entire house. My grandson developed a sinus infection, which we at first thought was a cold, while we were there. I don't doubt that it was caused by the mold.
The bedroom door on the first floor did not close. The bed had a strange corrugated mattress top and was not comfortable. The furniture was old, not matched and unsightly. The couch was filthy.
The second floor dormitory style sleeping quarters are sub-standard and the circular staircase was a novelty that wore thin very fast. Speaking of sheets; they and the comforters were threadbare, worn and old.
The appliances were old and barely adequate. We couldn't use the toaster because of the mouse infestation. And no dishwasher? Shades of the 1950's.
All of the dishes, glasses and silverware were stained and spotted from the treated water and it was impossible to remove the spots.
The house looked nothing like advertised. It was at the end of a very steep and winding road. If it snowed (likely in NY in Dec.) it would have been impassable until it was plowed. The last hundred yards or so was dirt.
Because of the smell, lack of potable water (for washing and cleaning) and the mold, my wife stayed at my daughter's house for a couple of days.
Michael, the homeowner would like to share the following message:
"I had no idea of mice inside the house before your stay. I would never rent out property with this knowledge. Since your stay, I have called an exterminator and the problem has been fixed. Also, the toaster has been replaced. I never heard from you during the 7 nights of your stay. Had you reached out to me from the beginning, I would have taken care of this immediately.
As for mold, I had a professional confirm, and there is absolutely no mold. In regards to the furniture, the living room set was purchased in July 2019. Some furniture may be older, and if you are referring to the wicker set in the sun room, I have never seen any of it look 'filthy'. I know my cleaning service is impeccable and would never leave the home in less than excellent condition. I'm sorry if my furniture wasn’t perfectly matched up to your standards.
The mattress is a memory foam that is brand new. I bought it for the queen bed to add extra comfort. I’ve never had any complaints about the memory foam. I am constantly buying new sheets to ensure cleanliness and that my guests are comfortable. I also buy high quality comforters. The spiral staircase shouldn’t have come as a surprise since it was in the photos. There is also no dishwasher stated in the amenities.
As noted in the guest book, the well water has mineral content. It is safe for cooking, bathing, and even drinking. However, I provide a Poland Spring water cooler for a drinking alternative. Yes, the water does get professionally treated and due to the mineral content, spots may not come off the glass or silver wear, but this is natural. I can promise that the water is not dirty or unsafe.
Each photo of the house has been accurately captured. I would never try to mislead anyone by using old or false photos. This is a country house alongside the Hudson River that sits on a dirt road. Rest assured that we have snow plows come this way. However, any road would be impassable before plowed."
Best, the Evolve Team
