 Beautifully presented! My best friend and I wanted to live there forever! Ditsy I know! But both of us have a high standard and this place has it without appearing too precious. Will be recommending it to all our friends. Very grateful to the hosts for allowing us to share their beautiful propertry. Karen Anderson. 

Peekskill - Fabulous Old Stone House

 Lovely high ceilings, beautiful stained glass windows, spacious rooms and every possible need had been thought of and provided for. Lovely indoor outdoor flow and with the extremely thick walls retaining the heat of the day the evenings were very pleasant. This home is close to all cafes, shops, bike hire and theatre and a pleasant walk to all.
