The vibe at Yurt Home on a Horse Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Beth's horse farm is absolutely stunning. Her horses are so friendly and calm, best of all they freely roam the farm and will come to graze by the yurt during sunset. Watching them from the porch was the highlight of our stay. Thank you Beth for having us, your an amazing host.
The experience of having horses walk right up to the porch was absolutely awesome. However, the porch was so overgrown it wasn't able to be used. There were also some loose floorboards that made you nervous just walking on. This was our honeymoon vacation that we were both looking forward to, immensely. The pictures that are posted for this listing are not an actual portrayal of the yurt as of today. The kitchen sink faucet was on the verge of breaking. The "purified" water was unplugged and clearly filled from the tap as the refill on the floor had no cap. The shower curtain had mold on the bottom and the linoleum in the bathroom is bubbled up. After pulling back the bedding it was clear that the sheets were not changed. Blond hair and stains all over. I found a clean set of sheets in the closet and put them over the dirty pair mostly because I was afraid of what I would find if I took the sheets off. I would have given this 5 stars if it was accurate to how it was portrayed in the pictures. However we were not expecting to have to buy our own dish soap, re make beds, and not have a usable porch. The place needs a deep cleaning and a better attention to detail. Sorry, guys.
We had a lovely time at the yurt/farm. But like another person commented the photos are probably from 10+ years ago, and they are definitely not accurate. Biggest issues for us - the yurt was clean andwarm, but extremely outdated and many things were falling apart. The faucet in the kitchen was broken, the door handle to the front door just fell off as we were leaving, there was only 3 forks (for a place that sleeps 5-6, that's not ok), the knives barely cut food, the water container was just kind of gross (so we bought our own water), the toaster was pretty old and dingy, there was no salt/pepper (for a fully stocked kitchen, I consider this an essential), the shower was also falling apart and if you're taller than me (5ft 9inches) don't think about showering in there as your head will hit the ceiling. We visited in the winter, so I assume the summer would be a much enjoyable experience, but the "outdoor deck" is definitely not a place you can sit and have some coffee - the furniture had been left out for clearly months at a time, so it was dirty and broken and rusty. You'll need to bring your own charcoal if you want to cook on the grill. No one greeted us even though it said it was a "meet and greet" upon entry. We happen to run into Tessa (not Tim or Beth) who was super nice and showed us around the farm. I even called the number on our drive in to check in with them and let them know exactly when we would arrive, I also had some questions, but no one answered the phone. The animals were really sweet and it was amazing to just walk around and pet the horses. BUT - the idea that they would walk up to the yurt and say hi, no that would not happen because the horses are pinned in and the yurt is outside of that, so that has clearly changed, but the description has not changed. Bottom line, the description is not accurate at all. We did have an enjoyable time, but I would not book again.... especially for the price.
Cozy yurt in beautiful surroundings! We stayed with our pup, and we all loved hanging out by the fire pit until it got dark and then curling up on the couch in the evening. Yurt has a pretty comprehensive kitchen, stovetop and oven, mini-fridge, free-standing tub with shower attachment, and queen-sized bed. No wi-fi but good cell service (for Verizon) and a lot of DVDs, etc if you're looking. The horses visited us in the morning. :)
Beth and Tim have great recommendations for hiking, breweries, etc in the area, but if you're looking for solitude, once you're at the yurt, you feel completely apart from everything. Gorgeous weekend.
Beth & Tim's farm is tucked away in a little nook of wonder. Horses roam free, chickens rummage about, wildflowers everywhere. We had a brief, yet lovely time in the yurt. It's equipped with everything you could need: full kitchen, hot shower, fresh towels, comfy bed, movies (on VHS no less!) plus a fire pit/grill and picnic table. We especially loved how secluded and private the yurt felt -- like we had our own little slice of farm heaven. The stargazing is dope, the hot tub is amazing, and you're still close to groceries (High Falls Co-op!) & restaurants & trails. Plus, there's a great watering hole a few miles down the road that was the perfect place to take a (very cold) dip before heading back on the road. And if you feel like a quick drive or longer hike, find the Rail Trail Cafe for a unique experience. Overall, Beth & Tim's place is Hudson Valley at its finest:)
