Property description

Located in the historic stone Gate House, Hickory offers all the charm of vintage Hudson River Valley estate living with the convenience of modern amenities!

This magnificent historic stone house sits overlooks a beautiful five acre private lake on a well manicured estate. The 100 acre property has approximately 35 acres of mowed lawns and fields with wooded trails to explore. Picturesque, peaceful, relaxing, refreshing, serene - all words to describe your time here.

The house is furnished as we would hope to find a vacation rental on our travels. Each room's furnishings are picked to compliment the house, and fit with the character of the property.

Hickory sleeps six, but may be combined with our 'Chestnut' Gate House anex to serve a group of 12. Great for family reunions, or friends to share; yet each house is fully independent and private!

The house floor plan is as follows: Ground floor: foyer, hallway, living room, eat-in country kitchen, half bath. Second floor: master bedroom with king, bedroom two with two twins, bedroom three with two twins, full bath with tub. Full-size washer and dryer in basement.

Car: Recommended

The Hudson Valley, from south of Willow Lake Farms to north is abundant in activities and places to see and visit. Storm King Art Center is one of our favorites, with West Point Military Academy also close by. The streets of Cold Springs offer antiques galore, with a beautiful Hudson River park to enjoy the sights and sounds of the river. Of course, plenty of culinary delights with the varied restaurants. Beacon, offers a very unique art view with lots of galleries complimenting the DIA: Beacon Museum just on the edge of the Beacon Train station. Don't miss Hudson Beach Glass, as well as numerous delicious restaurants. To the north of Willow Lake, is the wonderful Dutchess Rail Trail, culminating in the Walkway Over the Hudson, a state of NY Historic park. Of course the Walkway can be done independently. Hyde Park has the Culinary Institute of America, and Roosevelt museum and house, and also the Vanderbilt mansion and grounds. All with walking trails for your enjoyment along the Hudson. Wineries are abundant in the Hudson Valley, all within a short drive of Willow Lake Farms, including Millbrook Vinery and many others just on the west side of the Hudson. Of course, save lots of time to relax on the lake in our guest boats, or take a swim to the platform in the middle of the lake, or just relax in one of the benches around the lake. Plenty of time at night to enjoy a campfire at the guest area fire pit, and just visit with friends. The air is clean, the water beautiful, and the enjoyment plentiful.

 

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Fishkill:
Willow Lake Farms has a history as rich as the Hudson River Valley itself, with connections to individuals who helped shape the history of both Dutchess County and the entire United States.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Willow Lake is an experience in itself. With over 30 mowed acres and some 70 acres of woods, there is a lot to explore! Hiking is easy, and the views are exceptional. The woods always offer unique specimens of plants, moss, lichen and other unusual vegetation. Birds are plentiful, with early mornings and evenings yielding views of wild turkeys or deer. Raising organic chickens and vegetable gardens are also a treasured pastime.
