My family and I stayed at the Elms over the July 4th weekend in cottage #7 and had so much fun. It was perfect. Thank you for such a great stay!
Chandler, We loved every minute in cabin 5 with the million dollar view, the dog steps to the water, and it was twice as big as it looked in the photo on the Internet. We put the 2 keys and $6 for the firewood in the letter slot in the office door this morning at about 9 am. We will have the view in our minds eye forever. I will be raving about the Elms on the BringFido and other websites. I love my new, old style camp coffee cup.
We just wanted to let you know how much we loved our stay at The Elms, we had 3 days of heaven, a welcome relief from the newspaper business.
The cottage, the grille, the camp fire, the view, the water/beach, everything was a delight.
Our Chocolate Lab was full of energy and couldn't wait every day to get in the water, it was so nice to find a place with so many dog lovers. We enjoyed every moment and are looking forward to next year, maybe we will be able to bring our grandson and his parents.
Again thank you for a fabulous 3 day, restful vacation...The Mahoney's
"Hi Chandler- please accept my belated THANKS for a fantastic time again at the Elms! 2nd time around - it felt like "coming home" and the wedding added a nice touch!!! Enjoy the rest of your summer and see you next year!"
We just wanted to thank you again for the awesome time we
had at the Elm's. Not only is the location gorgeous, but you give
people tons of ways and ideas to have a good time. We absolutely
loved white water tubing, kayaking, SUP boarding, and the hike up to
Mount Hadley (once we finally made it to the top!). This is a
vacation that we will never forget. We can't stop talking about how
much we loved the Elm's, all the adventures we took, and how wonderful
you were to us. Can't wait to come back.
Hi Chandler - We just wanted to let you know what a terrific time we had last weekend. Whether relaxing on the deck of the Lodge (people and dog!!) and taking in the beautiful view, enjoying an impromptu Zumba class on the expansive lawn, going out on the gorgeous river or just hanging out, kidding around and having fun......we had a GREAT time. Thanks too for your hospitality and friendliness. We've already booked for next year! The Fitzpatrick family reunion
"Dear Chandler, The family reunion was a hugh success! Everyone enjoyed our time spent at your cottages...we couldn't have asked for a more perfect site. You and your staff made us all feel welcome right from the start. It isn't easy handling such a large group but you did it effortlessly."
Joyce Decarlo and the Mulligan Family
To Chandler and staff,
Here we are...another wonderful year gone so quick! People ask us all the time, 'Why do you keep going back to the same place every year?' The Elms is our 2ed home, we enjoy the quiet, the water, the tubing, our nightly campfires, the people and all the staff that keeps us coming back. We do something new every time we come...this year we actually did Smores, and they were great! Yes, we will be back again..we thank you!
Terry & Steve
The 45 of us “Kelly” family would like to thank you and your staff for an absolutely perfect week. The location and accommodations provided for one of our best reunions yet (every 5 years since 1980). All age groups, from children to Grandparents, all had an amazing week. We highly recommend “The Elms” to any family wishing to have a reunion. We look forward to seeing you next year, as some of us are looking to return for a mini reunion.

You are a prince among the tall trees and men. Thank you so much for the
lunch-box-retrieval attempt. Seriously kind of you.
We had such a magnificent trip up to your bit of heaven, and can't wait to come again. I
We'll stay in touch, you were a wonderful host and we had a blast talking with you!
Much love and happy summer,
Tina & Andy :-)
Good Morning Chandler! Thank you for a great stay! Very nice, relaxing, and lots of fun! The children and we loved it! See you again! Regards, Lars & Arielle Bromma, Sweden
Asked to describe the Elms in one word, I'd immediately say "accommodating". Given the chance to add another, I would include "majestic". My friends and I booked our stay without fully comprehending the beauty the Elms fosters. Even the posted pictures don't do the camp site justice. There is nothing more refreshing than waking in the morning, walking onto the porch, and eating breakfast while taking in the beauty of the Hudson River. Rolling mountains stretch along its length serving as the backdrop to the pockmarked houses that populate the area.
Chandler, owner of the Elms, was perhaps the most personable, genuine people I've come across in years. Each morning he'd walk the length of the campground, politely inquiring as to whether or not we had had a good night the evening prior, and see if there was anything he himself could do to make our stay better.
My friends and I kayaked for hours on the Hudson, sometimes allowing our selves to simply drift the length of the river. I hadn't been that genuinely relaxed in years. Thank you Chandler, we will be back!!!
This is a wonderful place. We have never been before! We had a beautiful vacation and an excellent experience! We enjoyed it very much, thank you! We will be back soon.
Thank you so much for the lovely, comfortable accommodations! The spacious suite enhanced our stay and the facilities (sports, boating, swimming, etc.) provided wonderful family entertainment. Have a great "rest-of-the-summer!" -- Bay Harbor Suite C
"We enjoyed our stay. We would like to come back in the fall. See you then." -- Cottage #2
No words could adequately express the gratitude we have for you in how beautifully you treat us and our families. As always, at the Elms we find just what we are seeking. Serenity!! Thank you for providing us with a marvelous vacation. We are looking forward to visiting for many more summers. We wish you all the best.
Gratefully, Rabbi and Leah Breslauer
Thanks for a wonderful time. Our kids had a ball. We will be back next year for our vacation. Thanks again
||I just want to tell you how much fun we had staying at the Elms. My whole family had such a good time. The cabin was great(the kitchen being the best part), the boats were a huge hit, and the beach was great for the kids. We couldn't have been happier with staying here. We can't wait to come back. I've included a couple of pictures of our stay. Have a wonderful day and hope to be back soon.

Thank you for providing such a wonderful bunch of cabins to help us build memories with our families. We came up here as children with our parents. Now we are coming up with our children. Your staff is wonderful.
