We feel privileged to have been the first guests in the exquisitely restored Ham House. Our week long vacation wasn’t long enough, so we extended our stay and now we really feel as though we know Tivoli, Red Hook and Rhinebeck, just as much as our girls know every nook and cranny and hideaway spot in the mansion. Thank you for welcoming us and for making us feel at home and get to know the pool, grounds and the deer near the pond. Many thanks for a fabulously enjoyable vacation! – the Kratkas – July 2011
