Another Amazing Stay
This was our third year in a row staying at this amazing venue. Everything about the Koozer-Ankney Homestead welcomes you in with the perfect blend of historic significance and modern amenity. The owners have paid special attention to all aspects of what makes your stay comfortable and convenient. They are immediately available with answers to any questions that arise and often find a way to accommodate special requests when given reasonable notice. Three years in a row with no end in sight. Thank you for everything.

Fun in the snow
Everything was smooth for booking and arrival. Kids had a blast exploring the large farm house and sledding down the hill outside. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you would need.

We didn't want to leave!
This home was Amazing with a capital A. Gorgeous historic home felt luxurious....plenty of room for two families, nine people. We were supplied with everything we needed...the kitchen is stocked. So nice to ski all day, the relax by the fireplace in the evenings. We hope to come back again...perhaps make it an annual getaway.

Too Many Cooks...Welcome!
This was a true getaway for a family of chefs! The kitchen gave 3 chefs the elbow room to work their magic and all the family to flow into the space and visit (rare treat!...The cd collection of John Denver & Celine Dion rarer still!) The many hearths, dining spaces, lounging areas and indoor/outdoor gathering areas were perfect for breaking bread, family games and connecting. The back 40 beckoned for a game of flag football. Time stood still here. The tranquility of this space kept us here for the entire time. We were loathe to leave it and each other. Thank you, Chris and Dawn. Your home is magical. -Jennifer M

Amazing renovated property in beautiful country setting
You want to stay here. With three bedrooms and sofa sleepers in three other rooms there is plenty of space for your family and friends. This is an 1832 farmhouse renovated to include modern amenities (jacuzzi tubs; large, beyond-well-equipped kitchen; excellent, large TVs; fast Internet) but maintaining the character of the original house. We especially enjoyed the balcony off the hallway on the second floor (both rockers and adirondacks), the fire ring out back, and the dueling fireplaces in the living room (we got both of them going at once and it may be a little warm but WHERE have you seen that before? Very fun!). Comfortable beds, three full bathrooms, beautiful views from every room; one of our best VRBO experiences. The owners were responsive when we had questions (even FaceTiming when we were figuring out the fireplace) and were really nice and seemed happy to have us as guests. It's a location out in the country but there are several state parks within 10 miles that offer hiking, swimming, kayaking, skiing in winter. Seven Springs and Hidden Valley are close by, too. But our favorite thing was staying at the house in a lovely setting. Highly recommend this Somerset home!

Another year, another AMAZING experience
Having had such an fantastic weekend last year at the Kooser-Ankney Homestead, we wouldn't have considered a different location. As we had hoped, our return was exactly what we expected. A relaxing retreat for a small group of friends that get together each year to reconnect. Although we all agree that the house is amazing, most of our time is spent outdoors enjoying nature, for which the property is perfectly appointed. There is a level of comfort here, inside and out, is much appreciated. The cleanliness of the property is exceptional and the extra attention paid by the host to the details is great, especially their willingness to work with you to make your stay even better. Thank you once again and we will be back next year for sure!!!
