The Farm Cottage is a restored 18c farm house nestled in the outlying pastures of Kinderhook Farm. Enjoy a private retreat surrounded by our grazing cattle and sheep, wild turkeys, foxes, Red Tailed Hawks, Barn Owls and an occasional Bald Eagle.
Please note that The Cottage is not The FarmStay - see listing # 342648 - which is an open sided red barn in the central area of Kinderhook Farm and is available late May through early October only. However, selective farm activities can still be enjoyed by conferring with farmers, Lee & Georgia, when you arrive.
Our kitchen is fully equipped to rustle up a delicious farm meal. We stock a variety of dried herbs and spices. In the warm months an outdoor herb garden is at hand and a barbecue is ready for grilling up some grass fed beef.
During the colder months, enjoy a meal by the fire with unobstructed field views through french doors. Either season our sunsets are spectacular displays of violets, pinks, golds, and soft greens.
The hub of Kinderhook Farm is in walking distance. Please check out our website - kinderhookfarm.com - for information and daily photos of our sustainable working farm.
If you're traveling with young children we can provide you with a portable crib and linens, highchair, baby pool, kiddie bike and jogging stroller. We've also stocked up on board games and books for young and old. You'll find croquet, badminton and horseshoes available. Local tennis courts abound and there exists a secret swimming hole on the farm only available for FarmStayers and Cottagers.
Those who have experienced Kinderhook FarmStay know the unique excitement and beauty of living on the farm. The Farm Cottage is in response to those who have been interested in an extended opportunity - a stay that's available all year round.
In the fall, Columbia County is a painter's palette of color. Crisp weather is perfect for hiking, shopping and dining in Hudson or the Berkshires. Winter is beautiful, often snowy - and nothing better than having breakfast next to a cozy wood fire with a view of rolling pastures. Snowshoeing and cross country skiing is outside your door. Spring is seductive as flowers and trees emerge in soft yellow greens and lambing goes full tilt at the farm. Early summer is the beginning of the busiest time at the farm and in the Hudson Valley and things don't slow down until mid December.
The entire cottage is light filled. The first floor consists of a small entry way, living room, small sitting room/bedroom, bathroom, a kitchen/dining area with wood burning fireplace, and pantry/laundry room, Both the living room and kitchen have french doors leading out to a wrap around bluestone patio.
The master bedroom is upstairs as well as a bedroom with twin beds. There's plenty of storage.
Air conditioning and heat are included as is WiFi and cable television.

About the owner: Renee and Steve are owners of Kinderhook Farm. Renee is an artist who shows at John Davis Gallery in Hudson, NY and is a tennis enthusiast. Steve manages money, the farm, and loves aviation, sailing, motorcycles and tractors. They share 5 children and one grandchild.
Why the Owner Chose Ghent: Renee redid this old cottage shortly before their main house up the road went through a major renovation which lasted two years.
Both Steve and Renee loved their time in the cottage where they often entertained lots of family and friends yet on cold winter mornings looked forward to coffee and breakfast sitting next to the kitchen fire.
The cottage was rented for several years and then accommodated extra weekend guests.
Renee decided to rent the cottage on a weekly basis when requests for Kinderhook FarmStay indicated that a lot of people might enjoy a farm stay year round and that the cottage could include more people in the farm experience.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Kinderhook Farm Cottage is an opportunity to experience life at Kinderhook Farm all year long as well as an opportunity to enjoy the vast number of attractions offered by Columbia County - the galleries, restaurants, shops, farmers markets, music and theater venues as well as a plethora of outdoor activities such as kayaking, skiing, tennis, birdwatching or just relaxing in a hammock under the radar.
