“Lovely house!”

Had a wonderful time in this very charming and well kept house right on the creek. Letitia was very responsive and thought of everything while stocking the house. Highly recommend staying there for a relaxing vacation.

“Excellent cottage home!”
Reviewed 10 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Warm, clean and lovely, it even had a fully stocked spice rack! The cottage was excellent to come back to and just relax after a long day of skiing at Belleayre, and the owners gave some excellent recommendations on fine dining! Would definitely rent again!

“Peaceful, relaxing getaway”

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Chez Rive Gauche with our two dogs and felt a sense of calm as soon as we were on the property. The interior decorated beautifully with it's relaxing cottage charm and you have direct access to the water in the back yard. We cooked all but one meal in the cottage, either in the well appointed kitchen or on the back deck's charcoal grill. My husband had fun fishing and we took the kayak out together a few times, the best is during sunset. Waking up in the morning to have a cup of coffee on the water while listening to the birds sing really is the best way to start the day. Both of our dogs loved the trip as well and swam in the creek after running around the large fenced in yard. Letitia and Sanjay suggested some great activities and local restaurants/shops to check out and all were fantastic! My parents even made the drive from Boston for an evening and they didn't want to leave. The entire experience was exactly what we needed and we will surely be back!

“Relaxed and Serene”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Super happy with this cottage and the owners. Everything was great from the beginning.communication was prompt. If you read cottage description and notes in the listing you will know what to expect. Owner is very honest and transparent about everything. The cottage was clean and the beds were comfy. We two person kayak was the best thing coz we could go around the water. The lawn is beautifully landscaped. I think our dog loved it even more prancing in the fenced-in yard and swimming in the water. There was even a dog bed and dog bowls. Kitchen was well equipped. The bathroom was clean with Nice hot water and great water pressure, organic shampoo, conditioner, and soap was provided WiFi was strong thru out the cottage . Lovely cottage great owners and a totally memorable stay. Looking forward to our next visit.

“"Paradise " best holiday n the greatest experience , fantastic hospitality ,highly recommend this beautiful place .”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Letitia's home is absolutely perfect. It is bright, spacious, well decorated and there is a keen attention to detail. The location is close to downtown Saugerties, Woodstock and Kingston and it's right on the water. There is a farm across and lots of ducks wadding and squirrels and we seen a blue heron as well. The kitchen is well equipped, there were spices lots of them and lovely dishes, glasses, pots and pans. The coffee was delicious and there were three yes three different kinds of coffee makers. We enjoyed our coffee on the large deck overlooking the creek after which we went fishing. The creek is great for
Fishing and there is a canoe and a kayak as well. Letitia a great host and checked in to make sure that we had everything we needed.
We'd definitely recommend Letitia's place to our friends or anyone who wants to rent a place in the Hudson valley.

“Chez Rive Gauche set the tone for a great vacation.”
Reviewed 27 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

An inviting and beautiful place……

The property backs on the Esopus Creek, with scenic views from the upper and lower decks.
A large front and back yard with plenty of room for games, the back which faces on the Creek, is enclosed for kids and /or pets to run free.
The cottage is welcoming, very clean and comfortable.
The kitchen has all the essentials for cooking and the other rooms are furnished and decorated with comfort in mind.
Chez Rive Gauche is close to several charming towns for shopping or touring.
The owners are attentive to the details that make the experience so pleasant. They are helpful and answer messages promptly.
This setting sets the tone for a wonderful vacation of any length, and combined with the incredible hospitality of the owners is a definite 5 star experience.

“Awesome Pet Friendly Home right on the Water !!”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Chez Rive Gauche is right on the Esopus Creek and its such a cute comfortable house. It is furnished super nice and everything you need is there. Very close to all the amenities in Saugerties and yet right in the middle of nature. A great getaway.

Theres a two person kayak and we had a great time paddling up and down the creek, which by the way, in July-August is bath water warm.
Oh and our dog refused to come out of the water....:-)

The last time I visited Chez Rive Gauche was in Winter to go skiing, I was super happy to return in Summer. I'll definitely be going back again.
