About Jane Schwartz

We love this area and bought our house 17 years ago to enjoy all the beauty and activities the Hudson Valley has to offer.

Jane Schwartz purchased this House in 2001

Why Jane Schwartz chose Columbia County

This part of the Hudson Valley offers a unique balance of natural beauty plus cultural attractions, making it the perfect place to relax and recharge.

What makes this House unique

This is not your average rental property - Avalon Cottage is our home, and outfitted as such. We live in the Cottage when we're not traveling. The location of our house combines privacy in a beautiful, natural setting with proximity to great restaurants, shopping, cultural attractions and outdoor activities.

                                                                      We were pleasantly surprised by Avalon Cottage. It is a beautifully maintained old home with so much character. Very comfortable and cozy with high end furnishings and appliances. It's not a cheaply done rental home, it has everything you could need and then some. It is much bigger and prettier than the pictures show. The host and co-host made themselves very available if anything would have come up although it didn't. If you need a place to stay in this area I highly recommend Avalon Cottage.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      A delightful experience

                                                                      Our stay in Avalon Cottage was truly delightful. It is a charming home and so comfortable. The Cottage is ideally located for day trips to explore areas of the Hudson River Valley and Western Massachusetts and so welcoming to us on our return "home". We enjoyed the quiet and relaxed atmosphere, especially time on the back deck relaxing, reading and watching the wildlife. Our vacation was truly wonderful thanks in large part to feeling so at home in Avalon Cottage.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Truly wonderful place to escape!

We particularly enjoyed the fantastic kitchen (Garland stove, top-notch cookware, Breville oven), and the luxurious Jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom. We also enjoyed the warm and welcoming living room with its beautiful fireplace. The location is perfect, too, as Avalon Cottage straddles the Hudson Valley and the Berkshires. We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation and can't wait to return!
