We had a large group of adults for a weekend trip, and this property met all our expectations. It's exactly as pictured! There was enough room for our group of 25 to fit comfortably, and the outdoor space was awesome. Everything was clean, and the grounds were well maintained. This is a great launching point for any activities you're doing in the area.
The only "con" worth pointing out is that the place does get quite hot mid day if it's warm out as there's no AC throughout the house. Other than that, absolutely zero complaints. We would definitely come back.
The house was a wonderful place for our work retreat. There was so much space indoors and outdoors. The pool and hot tub were a nice addition to the beautiful house. We had a campfire outdoors overlooking the gorgeous mountains.
The property manager was nice and helpful and was able to give us some information on the local towns.
The only negative for me was that the check out process was not smooth. We needed to alert the manager when we were planning on leaving and then wait for her to arrive to review the house before we left. We ended up finishing early and she was running late so we had to wait around a bit before being able to hit the road.
Overall a great property for a large group!
What a dream!
This home was absolutely perfect for our ladies' getaway. Everything was as pictured--somehow even more lovely. The only note I would give for future guests is that although it says there is AC, only some of the rooms have AC (because it's upstate NY and they rarely have very hot days). We didn't have any major issues with this (though some rooms got VERY warm during the day, especially one with no blinds) but others might so I wanted to make sure it was noted!
Otherwise, everything about this property is 5 stars. The pool was delightful (and they had many pool floats and accessories), the hot tub worked great, the kitchen is well-equipped and there are many small nooks and gathering spaces for everyone to enjoy!
Thank you so much for hosting us, it was exceptional!!
Great week at Orenda
We had a lovely family reunion for 18 at Orenda. The house is spacious and inviting. We totally enjoyed the large, open living space - huge, comfy couch; excellent wet bar; big tv; separate reading areas; pianos; games. The dining area fit us all, and the kitchen is wonderfully well-equipped and made cooking for our large group a breeze and fun. The pool and deck area are fabulous. Towels and linens were plentiful and the bathrooms were all nice. The backyard space and mountain setting are lovely, and there are varied fun things to do within a short drive away. Adam was very amiable and responsive. We arrived on the last day of a heatwave, so the lack of air conditioning that first day and night was initially a concern, but the heat broke the next day and the house was totally comfortable after that. The mountain evenings were lovely and cool, and the stargazing excellent! Some of the bed mattresses (not in the main bedrooms) could be better! Overall, a great country retreat for a big group!
4th of July with large group of friends
Our friends had a fantastic stay at Orenda! 26 adults were able to comfortably fit and sleep in the house. Driveway area fit plenty of cars. It was a super hot week and weekend (90 degrees+), so the house did get very warm without AC, but the pool was perfect and temperatures did drop at night - enough to gather around the fire pit!
Adam, the owner, was great! Very easy to communicate with and quickly answered my questions while planning and during our stay! We hired one of the chefs he recommended for a group dinner - food was delicious, and the chef/staff was wonderful to work with.
The house is close to good hiking, fishing, golf, and an easy drive to Woodstock. We did hope there would be Uber or local cab services, however everything we needed was a quick drive away and we spent every evening at the house.
We would definitely recommend this property!
A Scenic Adult Sanctuary well equipped for our annual 4 generation forced, family fun event.
Our visit was early summer and we found it to be a welcome restful, adult, retreat. We played many outdoor games in the large lush green lawns; miniature golf, Frisbee golf, kickball, Bocce Ball, and corn hole to name a few. A little more exterior lighting would have enhanced and extended our game nights. We greatly enjoyed the Jacuzzi and large pool that is well partnered with an on-deck grill and dining area. The Orenda house was clean with an ample supply of dishes, utensils, necessary items, along with paper and linen products. A well-stocked pleasant surprise along with easy access to a top of the line washer and dryer. The spacious, rambling, remote, wood house sitting on a large grassy hill provided privacy and peace of mind. Though we would NOT recommend it for children under age 10; the main wood floor areas with their fragile vintage decor and easy access to pool area along with the need to keep windows and doors open for summer cooling could prove challenging to parents of younger children. Luckily, we had only one small child. The home is a short drive to gas, grocery store and local Catskill park resources. The location has a remote small-town atmosphere that closed its doors early, so planning ahead was important and worth investigating ahead of time. Over all Orenda offers a great potential for rest, recreation and fun. Complete with a friendly owner who quickly responded to questions and requests.
