About Caroline Bollinger

I'm a former magazine editor and my husband is a professor of mathematics at New York City College of Technology. We live in Fort Greene, Brooklyn with our boys, 9 & 12. We appreciate our urban life all the more because we can get away. When in High Falls, we turn the kids roam and collect bugs; build labyrinths in the woods and roam the Preserve on their bikes. We hope (and believe!) you'll love our getaway as much as we do.

Caroline Bollinger purchased this house in 2006

Why Caroline Bollinger chose Hudson Valley

We became attached to the area in 1999, when we started traveling up together for a day of rock climbing. Two years later we were scouring local real estate ads. We looked for 22 months and were about to throw in the towel when we stumbled on the contemporary low-maintenance home we'd been seeking. It felt secluded, yet close to the preserve and friends in High Falls, New Paltz and Rosendale. So in spring of 2006 we purchased our place ONE CLOVEWOOD.

What makes this house unique

We like the comfort, openness and easiness of this house. It's hidden enough to feel like a weekend retreat. Yet it provides central access to all that we love in the area.

We come up with the kids to hike, bike, swim, fish, cook and relax and bbq with friends. The area offers so much of natures best that it's often hard to believe it's just 2 hours from NYC. Our giant tulip trees are home to orioles, finches and woodpeckers and owls. Our land also offers habitat to deer, woodchucks, frogs, a red fox--and one time even a black bear, to say nothing of our neighbors' free-ranging chickens! The house sits on several acres (as do others in the area), and the quiet is a nice antidote to the bustle of city life. Biking from the cliffs in the preserve back to our house, is a family favorite, there are carriage trails and gravel roads for all but about 1/4 mile. The hike to Bonticou is another must do.

We pick apples and pumpkins in the fall and let the kids get lost in the corn mazes and hay mazes at markets like the Wallkill, Jenkins and Calder Family Farm. Golfers will find a 9-hole course at Mohonk and 18 holes down the street at the Stone Dock Golf Course. Tennis players can play on a spectacular clay court with a view at Mohonk. There's also ample antiquing and even a vineyard.

We love to ski at Plattekill in winter. It's 15 minutes further than Hunter or Belleayre but we cherish the down home, old-school vibe. (It's hassle free and there's a great bar to boot!). My boys also love to ice skate up at Mohonk.

We take out-of-town guests to the DIA in Beacon, the FDR house and Vanderbilt mansions. We've also done cruises down the Hudson and trips to Red Hook and Hudson for antiques and enjoy the Hudson Valley culinary scene.

a great vacation property!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay. Could not ask for a better property. We have stayed at a lot of vacation properties over the years and this one has topped them all. Great job keeping the property in such great shape. Thank you!

Beautiful sunlit house for a perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at Caroline and Timi's house. The spacious sunlit space was perfect for two couples and our young kids. The kiddos had a blast in the basement game room and swinging out in the yard, and the parents had a great time having conversations on the porch under the stars. The location was the perfect combo - it felt peacefully secluded and quiet but it was just a few minutes drive from great places to eat and tons of activities. Caroline was a great host and was super communicative throughout. We're looking forward to visiting again!

Would definitely recommend

  • 4 of 5

Very beautiful clean and spacious. The kitchen was well supplied to cook, the queen beds were comfortable, and the living room was well suited to large gatherings. The foosball and ping pong tables were a very nice touch as well. Only concern was that the downstairs had a cement floor, which made it chilly in the winter time, but other than that it was wonderful.

Beautiful autumn get away!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice home in beautiful surroundings. Clean, comfortable, and well equipped with everything we needed (even ice packs for our lunch cooler). The 10 of us had plenty of space to relax after visiting Wallkill, Patterson & NYC. Although it is a bit of a drive to surrounding destinations, it was well worth it to be out of the city and in such a peaceful place. We are recommending this to our friends for sure!

Great Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable, relaxing time staying at Caroline's house.

The house is nicely decorated, offers plenty of room, and the windows and French doors provide an abundance of natural light.

It’s situated in a secluded, quiet location surrounded by trees (If you’re arriving at night, bring a flashlight). The privacy and surrounding nature were some of the things we enjoyed most – in the morning we saw deer and roosters on the outskirts of the property.

Caroline, the host, was friendly and responsive. All correspondence was by email (we never met). She provided clear instructions for accessing the house and using the amenities. The area guide she wrote, provided electronically, with a hardcopy at the house, had helpful suggestions for nearby places of interest.

Even though the house is in a remote location, we had good cellphone reception with Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint (no one had an AT&T phone, so I can’t comment). When visiting surrounding areas, Verizon service was the best.

We're glad we chose ONE CLOVEWOOD and would definitely return the next time we’re vacationing in the area.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Every room offers the perfect view......lush peaceful woods. The home was very organized, very clean. Beds were comfy. Our two boys loved the outdoor space, the basement and massive tub of Lego. Each morning and evening they looked for the family of deer who stopped by. We lounged and cooked and enjoyed the quiet. A visit to Westwind Orchard is a must, authentic and most delicious pizza. Don't want to leave....must come back!!!!

We love the convenient access to all the hiking/biking trails, swimming and rock climbing in Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park. We also enjoy a bountiful selection of local food--both farmer's markets and restaurants and visiting the local towns on both sides of the Hudson.
