For those that have allergies it is a short haired dog (Italian greyhound), that has hardly any hair left because he is older. We always vacuum after every stay, so you should not see a lot of signs that our dog stays here when we are here. **Please note: in winter weather (snow or ice) it may be difficult to get up our driveway, so please keep that in mind in the event that you book when it snows. The driveway will be plowed, but cars without 4 wheel drive or a lower gear may have trouble. Please try to get to the property earlier if snow is on its way. **Watch out for poison ivy or all, it is the woods. **We have filtered well water which comes from the Hudson River, it is perfectly fine to drink and the best tasting water compared to most states. Better than bottled! **There are usually some continental breakfast items on a shelf labeled for guests, as well as some items in the refrigerator. Coffee is on the left side of the refrigerator and sometimes eggs, tater tots (potato puffs) in the freezer, English muffins, bread, bagels, butter, cream cheese, OJ and coffee creamer. **Developed 3 acre lot (with road, buried electric and phone wire) for sale on the other side of the pond. Ask for details. **There's new things happening on our property all the time. I'm sorry for not always updating pictures of the grounds, but that is because the property is being changed every week.
