We had never been to the Catskills before and wanted to stay somewhere where we could bring our dogs. When I called to make a reservation, Andrea was welcoming and delighted to know that we wanted to bring our "girls." That gave us a good feeling right away. Andrea loved our dogs, and they loved her in turn. She made sure we were in a cottage in an enclosed area, so the dogs could go out with relative freedom. The cottage was comfortable and air-conditioned, thank goodness, given the heat of the weekend. Andrea is a gracious hostess to visitors, inviting us to have a drink with her and another couple who had recently arrived. She is knowledgeable about area restaurants, which helps when you're in a new setting, and she provided appropriate breakfast foods for us in the little kitchen area of our cottage. Wildlife and bird songs were abundant, and the sound of the nearby river was refreshing and soothing. We had a very pleasant stay at the Guest House.
