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.

Beautiful, peaceful, wonderful stay!
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!
Always a pleasure to share our home with guests that love the house and river view as much as we do! We look forward to a return visit.
Great weekend place.
Great deck overlooking the Hudson. Nice hot tub, access to the river, with canoes. Fully stocked kitchen in regards to pots, pans, etc. would definitely stay here again!
Relaxing with a view!!!
Great home, great location and great place for us to relax at after a long week in the Big City. Homeowners have created a wonderful environment in the home (+ beach house bungalow) and the backdrop of the Hudson River is a spectacular view anytime of day. Conveniently located to explore the outdoors and the small towns throughout the valley.
Great weekend retreat! The views and hot tub are phenomenal! Great bedrooms as well!
Beautiful views, in the morning you can see the sunrise from the bedroom windows as well as from the deck. The hot tub is fantastic and we absolutely loved the fire place by the water! A perfect spot to relax and recharge. We didnt even go out much because the house itself was so beautiful. I wish I would have booked a couple more days. I am definitely planning to go back again :)
Cozy, incredible view, different spaces to enjoy. Wonderful!
My friend and I stayed several nights to work on a project,but the house can easily sleep more. The view is spectacular and the hoouse takes full advanatge of the view. The homeowner is a visual artist and her artistry is present in every room. Great hot tub. Great boat house.
