About the owner: Lynda & Jim Dunckley would like to welcome you to the quaint town of Red Hook (Upstate not Brooklyn), New York. Both of us grew up in the Mid Hudson Valley and are very knowledgeable about the sights and happenings in our local area and beyond. We strive to make our guests feel at home from the moment they arrive by setting out a welcome basket of fresh, home baked cookies. Once here, we want you to make yourselves comfortable and enjoy all that this special place has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose Red Hook: This home has always been a gathering place for family and friends. The setting is ideal in that it is private and yet not isolated (great for people use to urban settings), serene and yet vibrant with the abundance of nature all around.
This was once a hobby sheep farm, and at one time we had 18 sheep grazing in the pastures as well as chickens, a goat, five children and the family dog. This was an ideal home for our large family and many memories have been made here of cherished times together. We would like our guests to have the same opportunity to create their own special memories in this comfortable, charming country home.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Shepherd's Knoll is located less than 2 miles from the Hudson River and Bard College and 5 miles from the Dutchess County fairgrounds. This inviting annex offers comfort and charm. We are within walking distance to farm market stands and pick yourself orchards. There is also several farm to table restaurants that offer catering, if you really want to have a relaxing stay and want to take a day off from cooking.
We are located just minutes to the villages of Red Hook and Rhinebeck and a short drive to Hudson and Saugerties for a great day of antiquing.
