Rhinebeck house description

Year-round country getaway privately situated on over 2 acres of woodland and open fields with a meandering stream and mature cottage garden. Perfect spot for the outdoor enthusiast, culture-seeker or those looking to get away from it all and just relax.

The great room with vaulted ceiling, wideboard pine floors and wood-burning stone fireplace has a wall of glass doors that opens to the deck with views of surrounding countryside -- this is the gathering area and the place to be if you are cooking, eating or just hanging out talking, listening to music or watching a movie. The kitchen contains everything you could possibly want for preparing gourmet meals and hardy country breakfasts. Basic spices, condiments and accoutrements provided. The dining table comfortably seats six. In the wintertime, a blazing fire is a must and we use it to toast marshmallows for smores and head out to cross-country ski on the property.

Comfortably accommodates UP TO 6 people. The sun-filled master suite with queen-sized bed and country pine furniture, has its own attached full bath and glass sliding doors that open to a cozy seating area and garden. A large second bedroom with two twin beds and a third bedroom with a twin trundle bed (twin bed expands to be a king or two separate twin beds) share a full hallway bath.

Privately situated within 30 minutes of most attractions in the Hudson Valley, the Catskills, and the Berkshires. Fifteen minutes from Rhinebeck Center. Fifteen minites from Bard College. Fifteen minutes from Lake Tagkanic State Park. 30 minutes to Poughkeepsie and Hudson.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: I'm from and still live in NYC, but always loved going away to summer camp as a kid. What I've tried to re-create here is what I would call the experience of 'getting away'. For me that means great indoor and outdoor spaces that make it easy to relax.

              Why the Owner Chose Rhinebeck:
              I wanted to be 'in the country' with privacy and land but not too far from town and basic amenities like great restaurants, groceries, movies/the arts. I love the varied terrain -- flat in parts then hilly, then flat again with a path that follows my brook. Wooded and open......formal and wild gardens.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              People tell me that it's cozy and that they love the private setting in the woods and the proximity to every thing you could possibly want to visit.
