I live in Florida, but fly up frequently. There are two cottages on the property, this 4 room and a 2 room,also available for rent. that I usually use. If I am not there, a phone call to me or the local house keeper, will answer any questions. She lives only 20 minutes away.
A filtration and uv system insures high quality drinking well water.
A "set" of golf clubs, bag and balls are available to use if you care to play golf at one of the nearby courses. Hotchkiss a private high school, 20 minutes away on Route112, has an excellent 9 hole golf course that you can walk or ride. Public access is available.
Various games ( bocce, croquet, putting, volley ball, indoor board and cards) are also available, besides the DVD and CD players.
Hiking part of the Appellation is great, but if just want to short walk, hit Falls Village, about 5 miles north off Route 7, for a look at the dam with its rock ledges to walk on... if the water isn't spilling over the dam. Most of the river is rerouted into the electrical power generating station.
Cultural activities nearby include The Sharon Playhouse, Hotchkiss private high school presentations, Norman Rockwell museum, Music Mountain( chamber music), Tanglewood (orchestral).
Dogs are welcome but there will be an extra $10 exit cleaning fee to leave for the housekeeper.
As anywhere, courtesy to neighbors is a must. No excessive noise late at night if neighbors are home,but usually they are away. No smoking in the house.
I have hired a cleaning service to clean the place and wash soiled towels and bed sheets. Please place all spoiled items in laundry basket in bedroom. Dishes, utensils, cups and glasses should be left clean. Campfires by river available, but not for raging fires...concern with starting a forest fire.

I'm 6'1", 182#, active 73 year old retired engineer. I enjoy the outdoors( gardening, fishing, golfing, hiking, canoeing) and indoors( former ballroom dance teacher, opera, ballet, concerts, plays/ musicals). I enjoy cooking, and trying to eat less meat...found some vegan dishes delicious.
I travel to different Latin American countries as a student, 3 weeks period, to learn some Spanish. It includes staying at a locals house where they feed me
breakfast and dinner and only talk Spanish...a little challenging !
I do travel a lot so have hired a local cleaning service that charges me $25/hour after each guest leaves. They end up charging $100 for the 4 room cottage and $50 for the 2 room as long as all the dishes have been washed by the guests.
I plan trips up to the cottage when not rented. I enjoy working on improvements to the cottages and the landscape. And i try to get in some fishing !!!
