Our New Annual Reunion Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

Mark & Sheila go above and beyond with the accommodations they provide their guests. They give a whole other meaning to "stocked house". Everything you can imagine from pots, pans, towels, linens and even bathrobes in every room! We even arrived to a guest basket filled with food and wine! The comfort of the home, along with the location, the scenery, and of course the amazing open concept and chef's kitchen, made this experience unlike any other for our group. If you are considering this house for your next family gathering, do not hesitate.....show up, relax, get the fireplace going and enjoy the comfort, tranquility, and unique experience this wonderful house has to offer. We will be back next year!!!

Perfect place for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Had such an amazing time at the house - the common kitchen area/open living room and beautiful outdoor area was perfect for our group of 9. The perfect escape from the city and excellent kitchen for cooking for a lot of people. Sheila and Mark were very welcoming, leaving a note upon arrival with fresh flowers around the house and a welcome basket! Loved it and only wish we could have stayed for longer!

Great Get Away for Group of Friends

  • 5 of 5

We had a relatively large group stay here, where evening meals were a major set piece. The open floor plan made it easy to both congregate and cook at the same time. But the loft and finished basement also made it possible to spread out. The sauna is not to be missed and make sure everyone sees the master bathroom.

Such a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Shiela's "Lassan Lodge" is an amazing place to stay. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of the many places available in the Hudson Valley. We were a group of couples in our late 20s & early 30s looking for a home to get away to from the city for New Years. The fire roared, the snow fell, and our spirits stayed warm.

The house has everything you need to make the most of the 5 acres, and at no point in 4 days did we feel like a piece was missing. (Sleds, firewood, sauna, candles, etc.)

There are also plenty of places to visit within a 10-20 min car ride (or Uber) if you do need some time outside of the house, but we didn't feel the need to leave too much.

Becoming a regular at Lassan Lodge,

Lee

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for USMA 2018 Family Weekend and loved this beautifully appointed, comfortable home! Sheila and Mark are excellent, generous hosts. The grounds are spectacular and the house was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. We would definitely stay here again.

What a wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

The efforts that the owners made to make our weekend trip exceptional was obvious. Our plan was to get away from the city with our grandchildren and their parents to create some fall season memories. From the initial phone contacts, detailed instructions of the house, the thoughtful welcoming basket, the house is a full functioning with a well stocked kitchen. What a gorgeous house and grounds to spend a memorable weekend.
