Welcome to your home away from home!
Unwind and recharge in our cozy retreat situated on a quiet road just 2.5 miles from Colgate, Seven Oaks Golf Club and the quaint village of Hamilton. You’ll love the open kitchen, dining, and living room! The natural light sunroom with floor to ceiling windows is a peaceful place to read, meditate, or do yoga.
Hang out downstairs and watch a movie or Colgate sporting event on a 70″ TV or enjoy a game of ping pong.
You have access to the entire house. The main level consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a writing nook with a wood-burning stove, and an open air living room/dining room/kitchen with an entire wall of windows. The sunroom is a peaceful place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and a good book, meditate, or do yoga. Open the sliding glass door in the warmer months to feel the breeze and hear the birds chirping.
The front and back yards give children (and adults) room to run around and play. There’s even a fire pit for roasting marshmallows or just sitting around the fire and chatting.
We’ve made every effort to make you feel at home! You’ll have access to high-speed wifi, puzzles, games and books, a washer and dryer, as well as Smart TVs in the living room, master bedroom, and lower level with Netflix, YouTube TV, and more.
The well-equipped kitchen is stocked with spices, cooking oils, coffee and tea (regular and decaf), Tupperware for leftovers, blenders, spiralizer, pots and pans, and plenty of dishes, silverware and glasses, and related supplies for your perusal. You are welcome to any dry goods in the cupboard and condiments in the fridge.
We’re on a well and the water tastes awesome. (No need for bottled water.)
There are plenty of towels in the linen closet as well as extra sheets and pillows and necessities like bandaids and Q-tips. We even provide toothbrushes, toothpaste, and razors in case you forgot yours.
Every bedroom, bathroom, and main area has separate heating controls, a definite plus in the cold winter months. The bedrooms and living room have air conditioning units for relief on hot summer days.
The lower level offers a comfy sofa with queen-sized pull out couch, 70” Smart TV, a ping pong table with ball feeder, and a laundry room with washer and dryer.
Bedroom 1: The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed, black out curtains, separate heating controls, writing desk, private, fully stocked bathroom with shower, closet, and smart TV.

VILLAGE OF HAMILTON
Head to the quaint, eclectic, village of Hamilton – a walking town with little shops, restaurants (outdoor seating), a small movie theater, a performing arts center, and other things to explore. Within a couple of blocks there’s a whole food store, Mexican food, Indian food, coffee shops and bakeries, Colgate bookstore, micro pubs, pizza joints, and the Colgate Inn… literally everything you need! (There’s also a full grocery store, hardware store, and dollar store a mile outside of town.)
Don’t miss the farm and craft market Saturday mornings in the spring, summer, and fall. You’ll find friendly people, local veggies, meat, cheeses, and bread, homemade art and crafts, and reasonably priced food trucks.
