This is a 2 BR/2.5 bath Orchards Keeper Apartment that occupies the entire second floor of the Marlboro Farmhouse that was built in 1873. We have lovingly renovated this property to provide a relaxing getaway for your group in the Hudson Valley.
There is a very large dine-in kitchen, which is fully stocked and several picnic tables outdoors near the pond or creek if you prefer to dine outside. The living room is large and sun-facing, with a beautiful period detail arched doorway to the parlor that we discovered behind paneling during renovations.
The sunrise bedroom has been redone with toile wallpaper and board and batten wainscoting and features a queen bed, writing desk, vintage train trunk and fully renovated en suite. The second bedroom complete with its own en suit has one king and one queen bed great for families, kids, slumber parties, girls weekend getaway, (or the snoring couples of the bunch)...
Outdoor use includes access to your own personal patio with grill included as well full access to private backyard complete with fire pit. We also have yard games such as croquet, badminton, horseshoes, and bocce we'd be more than happy to help you set up if you'd like to play outside.
The house backs up to over 200 acres of marshland, abandoned orchards, and wildlife. At night, there is almost no light pollution, and the stars in the sky overhead are stunning.
You will hear: frogs in the pond, roosters from the farms down the road, coyotes up on the mountainside, owls in the grove of birch trees, tractors driving past, the orchard horn at noon, Canadian Geese flying overhead... and at night: silence (punctuated softly once in a while by the train whistle from across the river.)
The house is well set back from the farm road on over two acres, with expansive lawns, a pond and meandering stream. The over 7,000 square foot house is divided into three completely separate living spaces - the first floor is also listed on VRBO (listing number #1258065) and the third floor is reserved for owner use. If you would like to book both 1st and 2nd floor units together please contact us with requested dates.
The base nightly rate includes two guests; each additional guest is $35/person/night. We chose this pricing structure to accommodate parties of all sizes.
