Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Designers own completely renovated year-round getaway cottage on a quiet country road. The sun filled one-level, 2 bedroom, 2 full bath, house is situated on over 3 acres of open fields which provide sublime vistas of the surrounding protected farmland and forest. Enjoy the amazing sunsets as you relax on the large deck overlooking a meadow and meandering creek. In the warmer months, cook dinner on the charcoal BBQ grill and dine alfresco under the wisteria-covered pergola. In the winter, sit by the fireplace in the great room and relax from a day of fun in the snow. As evening approaches, drive 8 minutes to the thriving town of Hudson, pick up your houseguests at the Amtrak station, and head out for a dinner at one of many wonderful restaurants.

The great room, with cedar walls and vaulted ceiling, has 12 large windows and a glass door that opens out to the deck. In the summer/spring with all the windows open wide, and screens in place, the room becomes an elegant screened-in porch. This room also serves as the dining area, with a large, round slate table that easily sits 6 to 8. The daybed, situated in a corner of windows, easily converts to a twin bed.

One who loves to cook created the kitchen. It contains a stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher, a Viking gas range and range-hood, stainless steel shelves and an antique butcher block island. A coffee maker, toaster, and all utensils and cookware necessary to cook a gourmet meal are provided. There is dishware and silverware service for 10. In the warmer months, four superb farm stands are within a 5-minute drive.

In the living room, there is a full size couch, a large coffee table, and two matching chairs. There is an antique Japanese tansu that holds board games and additional storage.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, bedside tables and reading lights, a full hanging closet and antique Japanese tansu for clothing storage. A glass door leads out to the back deck. The contemporary en suite master bath has limestone floors and a large soaking tub.

The guest bedroom has a twin trundle bed (which converts to either two twins or a queen), a full hanging closet for clothes, and is just around the corner from the full guest bath in the hall.

The deck has a table with four chairs, two Adirondack chairs with footrests and two wood chaises with cushions.

The house is 2 hours from NYC, 10 minutes from the Taconic Parkway.

The Amtrak train trip from New York’s Penn Station to Hudson is exactly 2 hours.

Just Secluded Enough

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more comfortable in this spacious, clean, and tasteful home that provides tons of privacy and countryside views from every angle, yet is less than 10 minutes from downtown Hudson, where the retail/antique/culinary/arts scene is burgeoning. We used our comfy digs as a base for exploring the mid to upper Hudson Valley towns and attractions, and rarely needed to drive far to strike a worthy destination. This property is filled with art, and provides every amenity imaginable: Weber grill and Viking range, light dimmers in every room, a soaking tub, plenty of wooden hangars, a laundry, and a large deck with lounge chairs. But the best amenity was the peace and quiet it afforded ... superb location ! One of our best VRBO experiences, for the price.

Cozy, sophisticated country home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five adults spent a wonderful week in this lovely, clean, carefully laid out home. There's just the right amount of space (including the comfortable day bed and two full bathrooms) for spending time together and for privacy. The great room is gorgeous, and the kitchen is beautiful in its simplicity and efficiency. We relaxed outdoors on the front porch and the back deck (plus the hammock!). The location is perfect (really just down the road from Warren St. in Hudson). Last but not least, the light and the views from this home are magnificent.

Comfortable, cozy and clean

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house, well maintained and fully equipped. The only drawback is you half to get up early on the day you leave to do the laundry before you have to leave. Will still rent again.
