Located in the beautiful Hudson Valley offering hiking in the Harriman State Park, Bear Mtn, Muscoot farm (great for little kids), horseback riding as well as local incredible spots; Croton Gorge Dam, Croton Point Park, Croton Landing, Tea Town Lake Reservation, Jane Arboretum and a fantastic Swimming Hole/beach all within minutes. Experience farm-to-table dining in The Hudson Valley. And, in a 46min ride along the Hudson River, you can be enjoying the endless supply of cultural events museums and restaurants to explore in NYC. Easy access to the house from the main road (9A) and only 6 min to Metro North Train. Tired? Alternate with a rest when you come back to your "country get away". The house offers one very large Master with king size bed. Two smaller kids rooms each with a trundle bed. The sofa in the living room has often accommodated two guests (really good friends) or one adult comfortably. The kitchen is a state of the art with gas stove and contains all the cutlery and condiments you might need. (Grocery store is a 5 min drive). The property is near a main road however, any sound inside the house is snuffed by a beautiful enclosed glass porch. Parking for 4-5 cars with ease. A bit of history comes with this house - the tale of the Devils footprint and so far no one has been able to find it. We will leave information and clues about where it might be. As well, If you have kids that you'd like to put in camp so you can laze around and have long brunches - there are many options which I am happy to recommend. (Hudson Sailing School, Sprout day camp, Croton Theatre Arts camp, etc.)
3 bed, 2 bath w/ fireplace off the Hudson River Close to Mountains, Trails & NYC

About Geraldine & Israel Bien

Geraldine & Israel Bien purchased this House in 2016
Why Geraldine & Israel Bien chose Croton-on-Hudson
went to school at Bard College. After a met my husband and we had two small children we felt the grind of NYC and are so thrilled to move back to the Hudson Valley. We couldn't be happier with the location and to have this beautiful old stone house that we really enjoy slowly renovating.
What makes this House unique
When we were house hunting we didn't see anything that we could imagine living in. When we saw this one with its imploring stones, and solid bones, rock wall and beautiful porch with 100 panes of really grabbed me oddly enough was the room beyond the master bedroom. There was a ton of work to be done. We actually moved the tiny kitchen and swapped it with the huge dining room and now we are always in up, talking, cooking, and food.

Cozy and updated
Had a great weekend at the cottage with some friends. The house was very comfortable, spacious bedrooms, and nice open living room with cozy fireplace. We spent most of the time gathered around the counter/table in the beautiful updated kitchen. Easy to get in and out with ample parking for several cars. Would have liked to see window shades in the bedrooms both for privacy and for keeping the light out in the morning!
Gracious hosts- Perfect location for us on East side of the Hudson River. Fantastic kitchen. The road was a little busy for me from Indiana but not for my son from Queens.
Very warm and cozy.
Home has it all:location, comfort and character
