Our family stayed at the house for the USMA Class of 2018 Graduation festivities. It was the first time we had not stayed at the Thayer Hotel for a graduation. If we were able to turn back the hands of time, and this house was available, we would have stayed at the house in a heartbeat!. The location, the comfort level, and the owner/booking process can't be beat.
The house is situated on a side street just outside of the Thayer Gate (The main entrance to West Point) and a very short walk to the West Point Visitors Center and the shops/restaurants in Highland Falls. From the house, some of us walked and some drove to graduation activities. The location is perfect.
Grad Week was hot with high humidity, whenever outside you sweat. The house was an oasis, cool and comfortable with the AC working flawlessly. We numbered 7 adults and one toddler for our stay. The three bedrooms and two full baths gave us plenty of room and plenty of hot water! The living room is super comfortable and the dining room was furnished with a large table and plenty of seating. We had everything we need in the kitchen for our stay. The house is very nicely decorated in a West Point motif. The back deck has a sofa and table along with a beautiful gas grill. The back yard is gated with an outdoor table/umbrella and chairs along with a fire pit. We had a gathering of about 35 people one night, catered by Barn Stormers BBQ (Geoff does an awesome job), and the backyard handled it easily. Most stayed outside with a handful hanging out in the kitchen.
Heather could not have been nicer to work with. They were in the process of renovating the property when I first saw it. She told me what it was going to look like when it was finished and sent me pics as it progressed to completion. Every thing not only met our expectations but exceeded them! Any question I had leading up to our stay was always answered in a timely, friendly manner.
In closing, our experience renting the property could not have been better. Outstanding location, outstanding comfort and decor, and an outstanding owner who was a joy to communicate with and delivered exactly as promised. When we travel to West Point as a family or with friends in the future, if in need of a house, this one will be our go to.
Thank you Heather for making your awesome property available to our family for the 2018 Grad Week, it made our trip that much more special!
