With little notice, Maret allowed me to book a room for one night (Saturday) on a weekend during high season. This alone is nearly impossible in upstate New York. Her home is a unique property that she shares with her guests and includes a a relaxing pool, beautiful trees, and a large piece of land. Her home is filled with beautiful art and antiques, more tasteful and unusual than what you would find at most B&B's but far beyond that and the amazing breakfast she makes herself using locally sourced products, including a vase full o fresh herbs and flowers on the table the permeate the house with wonderful smells, is who she is as a person and the exciting stories of her past having grown up in Scandinavia and lived in France before moving to New York to become a top international fashion model, then art expert. If all that isn't enough her cat Oden welcomes you as much, or as little, as you'd like with the most heart warming personality and hospitality that we have ever seen in a single feline. We miss him still!
