Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bathrooms with Hudson River views

A unique opportunity to sleep and relax on the majestic Hudson River only one hour from the great cultural center of New York City. Located on a quiet street that ends at an entrance to the Palisades State Park with a 5 mile bike/hiking trail along the Hudson. Five minutes away you can take a small ferry across the river to the Hudson River train line to Grand Central Station. Very unique location with spectacular river views. You can visit the museums and theater of NYC and come home to hike and relax and listen to the sound of the river. We have a stairway down to the Hudson and provide the use of a canoe & kayak and a fire pit on the shores of the Hudson. The house is a 5 minute drive from the Village of Haverstraw with an array of Latino food and small bodegas and 15 minutes from Nyack, with its charming shops and restaurants. Bear Mountain & Harriman State Park are within a half hour drive with a myriad of amazing hiking trails.

About Joan Harmon

My husband, Jim & I both grew up in the midwest- he by a lake & me on a farm but we are both artists and professors and work in Manhattan- this property made it possible for us to have it all.

Joan Harmon purchased this house in 2000

Why Joan Harmon chose Haverstraw

The proximity to the cultural center of NYC with a State Park trail along the Hudson and beachfront where we can swim and canoe & kayak- this is unique and very special. The addition of a ferry service to the Metro North makes country/city living a dream.

What makes this house unique

The majestic views of the Hudson and the sound of the water as you sleep at night and the chance to sit and walk by the river made me fall in love- its all about the magic of the riverand having a State Park trail along the river at the end of our block.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Joan,

Thanks you for making your home our home for an extended weekend. You have no idea what an escape to a small river town means to four exhausted city girls. Being able to boat, hike, swim and cook is exactly what we'd dreamed of doing this Labor Day weekend. This is the type of artistic retreat we one day dream of owning. Thanks for your hospitality.

Beautiful, peaceful, wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay! We reserved the Riverhouse during a visit to see our son at West Point. Our blood pressures immediately decreased upon walking onto the spacious balcony that overlooks the river.

Our hosts were terrific, the kitchen was the best equipped in all of our VRBO travels, the beds were comfortable, WiFi was great, the living room (tv area) was inviting, everything was fantastic.

We will surely book again!

Awesome Views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Best of both worlds with water and mountain views. Amazing. Very peaceful. We never wanted to leave the deck and enjoyed strolling along the water. Weather was great so we slept with Windows open, wonderful breeze with the water lapping the shore. Just awesome! Cute quaint home just as pictured. Close to Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown and Hyde Park. Wonderful recommendation to eat in town at Union restaurant. It was really great! Highly recommend! Thanks for sharing your wonderful place and we will certainly come again. We didn't have time to enjoy the hot tub or fireplace and will go down the road next time you catch the Staten Island Ferry into the city and hike through Palisades Park.

Peaceful and Good location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay here. We wanted to travel into the city, and upperstate, and this was a great location to do that. Good neighborhood, easy to get around and get what you need,. Very comfortable home. Please note, there are ALOT of stairs to the boat house, but it's very peaceful and relaxing down there. Thank you for letting us stay !

Very nice with many nice touches

  • 5 of 5

Pleasant, comfortable, convenient to Westchester County and West Point. Great view and access to the Hudson River. Haverstraw Ferry is 5 minutes away and takes you to Ossining Train Station for easy access to NYC.

Didn't want to leave!

Nice Home on the Hudson

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this Riverfront home in Haverstraw. It was clean, cozy and equipped. We especially enjoyed the deck and views of the Hudson river. I was aware in advance that the road is tight from other reviews. My only suggestion would be to add a window air conditioner to the master bedroom as my guests were very warm (but they do like things cool). Overall, very nice.
