"This is a wonderful little cottage in a great, quiet location in the Hudson Valley, not far from some great hikes along the Hudson. Also, it's nice being close to Rhinebeck; its weekly farmers market and big modern grocery store made it a cinch to stock up for our stay. The cottage is very well-equipped with excellent Wi-Fi and a kitchen with everything you'd need to cook. The cottage is nice and bright -- decorated in mostly cream colors -- and the view of the creek from the back is so lovely. Loved the old wooden floorboards and exposed beams, too! Even through the cottage is somewhat close to the street, it feels quite secluded because of all the lush greenery in the front yard.
The quiet country road on which the cottage is located is great for running and biking. I even saw some scarlet tanagers and a great blue heron on my run, so I imagine the area would be ideal for birders. The queen bed was very comfortable (we didn't use the full one), and the AC in both bedrooms was more than adequate. The only downside is that the tap water is somewhat sulfuric, which I gather is common in Dutchess Country, so we found it necessary to buy big jugs of bottled water and/or let the tap water sit out on the counter.
All in all, an excellent stay!"

"Casual comfort in a charming, quiet neighborhood, a five minute walk to the stores and restaurants on Broadway and, for horse lovers, an easy ten minute drive to Saratoga Race Course. This describes our enjoyable stay in this three bedroom, two bath 'condo', which is attached to the owner's home. The owner was available if we had any questions about the area, but was not intrusive. She was a wealth of information regarding local history, the race course and restaurants. The living room has two large comfortable sofas and a flat screen TV, and there is a large dining room table if you choose to enjoy your meals at home. A Mr. Coffee maker and a Keurig were available for our use, set up on a side board, reminding me of a B & B. The kitchen had all the essential ingredients to prepare breakfast to dinner (of course we supplied our own food!) There is an eclectic mix of furniture in the bedrooms that are located on the second floor. Our friends enjoyed their stay in the airy master bedroom that has a queen bed, while we chose one of the smaller rooms that has a queen bed. The owner supplies all the linens and towels and provided us with paper goods which was great. There is also a washer and dryer that seemed brand new for our use. One of my favorite features about the condo was sitting on the deck alongside the house, enjoying morning coffee, listening to the birds and looking at the beautiful morning glories. The owner provided a table and chairs with an umbrella, as well as a grill.
We enjoy the horse racing at Saratoga Race course, sitting on chairs in the picnic area. This location is an easy drive, avoiding the traffic lights in town, with pay for parking lots that are a block or two from the main gate. Of course we visit local restaurants and it is wonderful that we are able to walk to most of them, including some in the Arts District on the West Side. We always go to Saratoga National Golf Course and enjoy a delicious lunch.
We enjoyed our ten day stay in this charming house. It is in a great location for all that we choose to do and we look forward to our visit next year. We are already booked!"
