About the owner: I am a retired school administrator who has lived in the Hudson Valley my entire life. I like to spend the summer in RI with my children and grandchildren. This year I will also spend most of the winter there. My house is so lovely that I want to share it with others. I have been renting for 5 summers while I go to RI and everyone who stays here enjoys themselves. I love to cook so the kitchen is very well equipped with nice appliances and cooking utensils. I am an avid outdoor enthusiast so the large outdoor area is great for eating or birdwatching.
Why the Owner Chose Highland: This property is close to many major points of interest but private. Access to so many places is very easy. There are buses going into Poughkeepsie and New Paltz if you prefer not to drive. The rail trail system is a short distance away and there is easy access to the Walkway Over the Hudson.
There is always something to do for adults and children. Check the local paper for activities and restaurant guide.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This house has a lovely 'feel' to it and you will immediately feel at home. The rooms are large and gently decorated with hardwood floors throughout. It is easy to care for and lovely to look at. I especially like the outdoor space where it is fun to read and relax.
