Mid-Century Style and Modern Charm in the Heart of the Hudson Valley Closed to a
Copper Hill House has been carefully designed and maintained to provide a sophisticated adult atmosphere. Decor and finishings are all unique and have been hand selected. To minimize potential for accidental damages, we regret that children under 13 and pets are not permitted.
Staying at the Copper Hill House rolls a variety of experiences into one. Just 2 hours away from the George Washington Bridge, 15 minutes from Windham and 30 minutes from Hudson.
Enjoy a glass of wine on the front porch as you take in spectacular sunsets against the backdrop of the Catskill Mountains. Grill a feast, nap in the hammock or hang out late night around the fire in our landscaped side yard. Up the hill behind the house, you'll find 4 private acres with a pond. The area is as good for a walk as it is for a game of horse shoes or badminton (provided). Or bring a football for a brisk fall game!
Inside the house, enjoy a mix of old and new. This historic home has been recently renovated and decorated in Mid-Century style.
Downstairs - A large kitchen with new appliances and wares is great for cooking and gathering. Entertain in the dining room with seating for 12 and a Krakauer upright piano. The living room (or parlor as we call it) features a wood stove and 42' television with Wii, Netflix, Amazon instant and DVD player. You'll even find an unexpected spa-style bathroom paneled in cedar with deep soaking tub for two (also corner shower, dressing room).
Upstairs - 4 bedrooms: One master suite with King-size bed and sitting area with fold out sofa, one shared suite with two double beds and two traditional bedrooms each with a double bed. This level also holds a second bathroom with custom terrarium shower and modern finishes. There is ample closet space and fresh towels and linens provided.
Other perks include a book and board game collection, acoustic guitar and several Wii games.
If you can draw yourself away from the property, there are dozens of attractions nearby in all seasons. Swimming across the road at the Catskill Creek, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, antiquing, wineries, apple orchards - not to mention winter skiing. We have a full guide updated as we discover more. The charming town of Freehold is just .8 miles away with a general store, pub and an unmatched dining experience at Ruby's Hotel Restaurant(Zagat rated). Windham sky mountain is less than half an hour away and so is Hudson. There are 35 peaks to hike, 2 mountains for skiing and snowboarding plus Hunter mountains’s Zipline adventure. Taking a detour might land you in the highest cascading waterfalls in New York State or the music and art scene at Hudson. Antiquing, fine dinning and live music are a heard bit away from Copper Hill House.

About Patricia Bernard

Patricia Bernard purchased this House in 2011
Why Patricia Bernard chose Freehold
I started staying in the Catskills a few years ago to take a break from the city and indulge in nature and tranquility. It was magical from the first time I viewed it - totally by chance as we were visiting a friend with a home in the area. The house, though charming, was in need of major renovation and was a project I was very excited to take on. As we got to know the area, we were lucky enough to befriend the town historian and his wife. Through their extensive knowledge and photographic library, we were able to consider the the home's 100+ year history when making improvements (like hand-rebuilding the original stone wall pictured in the above photograph from the early 20th century). Also, as our escape from the city, the land itself is very important and is in a constant process of beautification. Being a fine mix of social and private, Copper Hill lends to similar people. There are friendly neighbors to chit-chat with and ways to be out and about, but ultimately we want to make sure our guests have the chance to feel as at home in as they would in their own and to recharge.
What makes this House unique
For the summer the catskill creek its steps away, for winter all the mayor mountains are less than 30 minutes away. Also 30 minutes from Hudson and its night life and 4 minutes from Ruby's Hotel Restaurant which often has life music and always has fantastic food made with organic locally grown produce.

Great winter getaway!
We had an amazing time (group of 10 people) and would definetely recommend the house. Despite cold weather we were super cozy. Everyone slept comfortably. Kitchen has everything you need to make dinner for that many people and huge plus we're the Wii games and very relaxing soak in bathtub downstairs. We will be back during summer.
Thank you Patricia!

Perfect weekend getaway
Great kitchen, perfect for making dinners for a large group. Fantastic grounds including fire pits, hammocks and a badminton court. Really the most cozy property I've ever stayed at.
Wonderful winter stay at Copper Hill House
Seven friends and I had a wonderful MLK weekend stay at Copper Hill House. We cooked, played games and loved the wonderful outdoor campfire. The kitchen was very well outfitted for cooking elaborate meals, and we certainly took advantage! The caretaker was keeping an eye out for our arrival and greeted us before we could even call her. Everything was clean and well-maintained, with the only caveat being one mattress (one of the queen size bedrooms) which one of my friends complained was very creaky and difficult to sleep in. Otherwise, everything was perfect!
We enjoyed short drives to Hudson and Kaaterskills Falls and are looking forward to coming back for a summer stay and swimming in the creek! We really loved it and I highly recommend the property.
Lovely weekend away!
2 other couples plus my husband and I went away for the weekend and had a fabulous time. The house was super cozy and we felt right at home. The kitchen has nice appliances and tons of pots, pans, utensils for all your cooking needs. We took advantage of the Wii game system and fun games she had available. The owner labeled everything around the house to make it super easy to find what you need and know what to do at checkout time. We went skiing and it was less than 25 minutes to get to WIndham. The house did have a lot of lady bugs inside which didn't really bother me, but bothered 1 of the girls staying with us. Overall a great trip and I would definitely come back again!!
