Clermont house description

Enjoy country life in a beautiful home on 4 acres on a quiet lane with views of horses, barns and rolling fields. The property has a sunny garden, majestic old trees, sweeping front porch and is just 2 hours from Manhattan. It's a quiet and lovely country setting, yet close to quaint villages, restaurants and entertainment.
This Arts & Crafts style home was built in 1912 and is a classic and comfortable country home. It has buttery wood floors, large leaded glass windows, original hardware and handsome fireplace and columns - but now has some modern amenities like central air conditioning, WiFi and Internet TV loaded with Netflix films, HBOgo and more. Perfect for a romantic getaway or gathering of family and friends.
Our home is ideal for 4 people in terms of living space, bathrooms etc. There are 3 private bedrooms, two with queens and one full-sized futon. In addition the master has an adjoining room that was formerly a nursery with a full size futon and window, (3 1/2 bedrooms total, sleeps 4 adults and 1 child).
We love to watch the 'world go by' from our inviting front porch which overlooks rolling fields on a quiet country lane. You can BBQ or lounge in the landscaped garden with peonies and hydrangeas and majestic old trees. Walk down to the horse fencing at the edge of our property and visit our neighbor's horses - 15 magnificent Belgian's that show in local fairs and parades. Cycle over winding country roads and pass barns, country markets and animals including unexpected ones like Llama, Ostrich and Buffalo!

We had an ideal weekend at the Clermont house. The house is in a great location. Its surroundings are beautiful and peaceful so we could relax. All the towns were all within a 5 or 10 minute drive we could check out sites/farmer's markets/restaurants. The house itself was well appointed and spotlessly clean, which we really appreciated since we were traveling with two small kids. Also, Lyn is a very gracious, helpful host.

A piece of Heaven ...

Our family couldn't have hoped for a more peaceful and restful week. The house is charming (our favorite part undoubtedly was the gorgeous backyard), and the area is absolutely lovely. Visitors have the perfect opportunity to stay off the beaten path, but yet you're within easy access of nearby amenities. Lyn was wonderfully responsive and had some fabulous suggestions for local activities and resources. Our trip flowed effortlessly - and that says a lot when you're traveling with young children. The Hudson Valley is a treasure, and Lyn is a knowledgeable, hospitable host. Many thanks for the memories!

Great rural place close to civilization
Great rural place close to civilization
We fell in love with this place--so much so that we added on another week, and even then it was hard to leave. It is on a very quiet country road-- I often rode my bike without seeing a car for a half hour. Yet inspite of its rural feel, it is 7 minutes away from Bard College, and just a few minutes more to Red Hook and Rhinebeck. It has a great front porch to hang out on, and charming rooms with the original 1912 woodwork. The grounds are lovely, and the property is surrounded by working farms. We were there at the end of July, and we really appreciated the central air. All in all-- a great escape place!

Charming Home in a Bucolic Setting
Charming Home in a Bucolic Setting
We spent a week in July at this home and had a wonderful time. The house has an arts-and-crafts feel with some vintage character but is clean and comfortable. It was so much fun to decide which porch to chill out on--the front or the back, each with a different feel. We used this as a base for hiking and exploring the great estates of the Hudson Valley nearby. It was very quiet, surrounded by working farms and rolling pastureland. Next time I go I will do more biking as the roads in the area mostly have good shoulders, little traffic, and great views. The restaurants in nearby Tivoli were just as innovative and delicious as those in NYC.

About the owner: I am a native New Yorker who discovered the Hudson Valley years ago when I was looking for a quiet escape from the pressures of a career in advertising. Our family spent many summers and weekends here enjoying country life. Now that the kids are older it's a pleasure to share our home and all our favorite places with you!
Why the Owner Chose Clermont:
This area is so close to the city, yet it's truly another world up here - small town America at it's best. First we fell in love with the tiny town of Tivoli, then realized what a gem it was to have Bard in our backyard. Our playground are the towns of Rhinebeck and Red Hook and we also spend a lot of time hiking and skiing the Catskills.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this home the moment we saw it - built by hand 100 years ago with oak trees from the property, this was a wedding gift from a man to his wife. It's a handsome house with a really warm and comforting vibe, majestic old trees and a classic country porch where we watch the 'world go by'.
