  • Charming Farmhouse on the Beautiful Hudson!

    "Myself and three friends as well as their 5 year old spend Labor day weekend at Monica's beautiful farmhouse. The kitchen was a joy to cook in and we loved eating all together in the open dining room. There are windows all around so everything felt light and airy. There's also an abundance of cool quirky art all around. The sun porch was beautiful to sit in and look out on the magical back yard with the huge weeping willow tree. The backyard lawn stroll down to the Hudson was my favorite walk every morning with my coffee. And we had a blast taking the canoe and kayaks out. The claw foot tub was a highlight of mine! It was so nice to soak and look out at the tree tops. Monica did not have the property booked on that Monday so she let us stay late and check out at 330 which was extremely kind of her. The house felt so great we never wanted to leave!"

  • Great Family Week on the Lake

    "Our family had a great time while we were at the house. We really loved the location and the easy access to the lake. I was quite surprised to see how many people use the private Washington Beach! We had great weather, a little bit of rain that didn’t last very long and one day was very hot and humid, but on the average it was perfect. We used the canoe and row boat often and we also cleaned out the fire pit and used that a few nights. It was a lot of fun for everyone. While there, we saw a bald eagle, lots of deer, wild turkey and even had the chance to see a bear! It was frolicking in the open land on the right side of the Retreat across the lake. We all had a wonderful time and would love to enjoy the house and the lake again some time in the future."

  • Perfect Place for A Family Reunion

    "Shakespeare on the Hudson was the perfect location for our family reunion. With thirty people ranging in age from eight months to mid seventies, we were a big and eclectic group, but the River Lodge met everyone's needs. Lots of space, a beautifully appointed house, plenty of big areas for congregating and socializing, an enormous lawn which was perfect for impromptu team sports, a fire pit for s'mores, and of course the beautiful Hudson River right there-- this house truly has it all. The kids had fun swimming in the pool outdoors and playing pool indoors, and the kitchen was big enough for many cooks at once. (One suggestion: the kitchen could use a couple of large cooking pots and large serving bowls). The walls are surprisingly thick-- noise traveled between the rooms right next to each other but not from one part of the house to another. Bob was quick to send Dave over to fix the kitchen door that was stuck, and he was friendly and fixed it quickly. We loved being there in the summertime and took full advantage of swimming and kayaking in the river, hiking the trails, and chasing fireflies in the woods, but this house seems ideally suited to every season. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at the house, but the last night we ate at the Stewart House's River Garden, a beautiful B&B and restaurant that is part of Shakespeare on the Hudson. Kim was very helpful in accommodating our group and arranging for a tasty buffet that met our food requests and pleased all age groups. Everybody agreed that we should have our next reunion at Shakespeare on the Hudson again!"

  • truly a special place

    "We enjoyed our stay immensely. The owner, Karyn, was so attentive. The home is beautifully designed, maintained, and was fully stocked. I mean fully stocked! We have stayed at many VRBOs and this is one of our favorites. I look forward to returning again soon."
