                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1983

                  About the owner: I am a third generation horsewoman and still take in horses for training on a limited basis. I offer workshops, clinics, and private lessons to people seeking to understand their horses better and improve their horsemanship skills. We do not offer horseback riding to guests. I am more than happy to make prior arrangements to spend time with those interested in learning more about horses and the work I do to help people and horses reach a better understanding. We keep a vegetable garden and spend lots of time in our kitchen at harvest time. Our dogs, Pete, a Rat Terrier, and Bessie, an Aussie Shepard, are fast becoming great ranch hands.My husband and I reside on the property year round. We try and get away seasonally for short vacations.

                  Why the Owner Chose Millerton:
                  The bunkhouse was originally my father's residence. It was converted into an apartment in 2005 and was rented to full time tenants until the spring of 2010 when we decided to turn it into a guest house for my students and a vacation rental. We've taken special care to turn it into a relaxing, private, and spacious experience. The bunkhouse is just what we would want when we get away. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a group outing, or a place to bring the family, The Bunkhouse is a welcome vacation experience.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The bunkhouse is located at the heart of the ranch which gives you the unique sense of being at the hub of activities while affording privacy. The views from each window are different ranging from horses grazing in pastures, rolling hills and farmland, distant mountains, and the property's gardens and woodland. A walk around the fence lines offers spectacular views of the area farms and woodlands Hike, bike, or cross country ski on the Harlem Valley Rail Trail located less than a mile from the ranch. The trail can take you right into the heart of Millerton or Amenia. The Bunkhouse is only 3.5 miles from the towns of Amenia and Millerton, NY, and Sharon, CT
