About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Charming, completely private country house on a creek. Three bedrooms with queen beds, two baths, living room with working wood-burning fireplace and a 3-sided windowed porch with a working antique wood-burning stove. Deck outside the back door leads to a wide, bubbling creek that is incredibly soothing - fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the running creek and birds chirping. Yard has seating area for reading, eating, sunbathing. A perfect place to relax and unwind from a busy week in the city. Close to antique stores, farm stands, wine shops, a beautiful lake with swimming, boating, and a lively daytime and evening outdoor restaurant on the water. In winter, ski resorts (15 minutes to Jiminy’s Peak). Quiet, secluded and exceptionally relaxing.

This house is owned by a New York City artist -- it is authentic and stylish, for those who want a rustic, natural getaway (vs. television and electronic amenities). We do have high speed wi-fi/internet. In summer you can enjoy an herb garden outdoors, charcoal grill for grilling, coffee maker and and basic kitchen appliances and amenities. Good quality cotton linens and towels.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place on a little stream in a quiet tranquil spot. We've been here before and would love to go again. The kitchen has all the usual amenities and was well stocked with pots, pans, and dishes and was large enough to cook meals for the six of us, although there are restaurants within thirty minutes and a grill outside for other options. Comfortable beds and a sofa for lounging. Wifi for those teenagers who can't survive without electronics. Beautiful interior decorated with the artist's original works. I sat by the stream in the garden and relaxed while my husband splashed with the kids.

Amazing cozy stream-side arts & crafts home - perfect upstate getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Gosh, we loved this house so much. Cozy and cute, lovely interior style, with all of the amenities, really charming. The backyard is the main event -- lush, green, super private with a roaring creek. The best place to be on a hot summer day. Ilze and Yucel were very gracious in all communication, and provided great area recommendations. Cannot wait to go back!
