About the Property

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

A bucolic retreat, this completely secluded property, nestled on 65 acres is a 'playground in paradise' offering private, on site, activities for every season. Heated pool, tennis court, basketball, bocce, horseshoes, nature walks, hiking and cross country skiing on marked trails. Enjoy the tranquility overlooking the stocked pond from the gazebo, or use the fishing equipment. Not a neighbor in sight and sitting at the end of a 2000' private driveway- there is no traffic at all.

The sun filled, roomy farmhouse offers every modern convenience yet retains the charm of yesteryear with stone fireplaces (indoors and out) and a wood burning stove. Traditionally furnished with a combination of antiques and classic pieces, it is comfortable and attractive with plenty of room to gather together yet plenty of room for separate activities and solace.

The fully equipped chef’s kitchen, which seats 16-20, offers a professional gas cook top with griddle and warming lamps- perfect for big country breakfasts, double ovens, two dishwashers, a separate beverage refrigerator and an antique farm table- for preparation, or for dining and this room is adjacent to a classic screened in porch- for dining or just relaxing. There is barbeque equipment- gas grill, charcoal grill and smoker off the rear bluestone patio.

After dinner enjoy the outdoor stone fireplace, year round, under the stars or listen to the wildlife from the front porch.

The library/media room has a stone fireplace, flat screen TV with Direct TV service, a VCR, DVD, video games and wireless internet service. This room has a double size pull out sofa. There is a bathroom with shower nearby on this floor.

The sitting room has an upright Steinway piano and is separated from the dining room by a wood burning stove.

There is a guest bedroom on the ground floor with queen bed, double pull out sofa and ensuite bath.

Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom has a queen bed, ensuite bath with heated floor, soaking tub and separate shower.

In addition upstairs, one guest bedroom has a queen bed and another has twin beds. These two bedrooms share a large hallway bath with spa tub and separate shower.

Optional Guest Cottage (only available, at additional cost, with rental of main house) one queen bedroom. Pull out sofa in living room. One bathroom.
Summer/Holiday Rental Rate (will be added to the main house rental rates):
$250/Night Winter, Spring, Fall
$350/Night (Memorial Day, June, July, August, September, Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Year Holidays)

The property is centrally located in the Hudson Valley, 15 minutes to Rhinebeck Village and the Duchess County Fairgrounds for Antique and Craft shows, yet close to the Berkshires; less than 1/2 hour to Catamount for Skiing; or Hudson for antiquing. Convenient to Bard College, Marist, Vassar and the Culinary Institute, as well as local farms for picking apples and berries; the popular fall festivals and convenient to several farm wedding locations. It is just off the Taconic Parkway (less than 1/4 mile) at the Jackson Corners Road exit, 90 minutes from NYC.
