Step back in time – stay in a piece of history - Colden house was built in the 1780s! A home that has stood for centuries now and with a little more TLC will be restored to last another 240 years. We have been so impressed at the craftsmanship we uncover every time we begin a new corner of restoration - a federal post and beam to the core! While you'll see some renovations are still underway, this home is a very special retreat and a relaxing and comfortable space to enjoy! You, as our guests will be supporting it's preservation!
Also available on the property is a separate one-bedroom second-story space that sleeps 4. The Creamery (see listing #1105220) can be rented as well so the whole family can gather!

Stay in a home where you enjoy the amenities of modern life but can fully appreciate what life must have been like in early America. The Colden family was an interesting part of American history and played a significant role in colonial America. (Jane Colden is a favorite of ours!). This house belonged to Thomas, sheriff of Ulster County and grandson of the Lt. Governor of New York. Later a part of what once was the Alex Campbell Milk Co. in the late 1800's, Colden House continued to play a significant role in Hudson Valley history.
