Property description

Completely secluded cabin in the woods on 5 acres of land surrounded by a nature preserve. Walk out the door to hiking trails, waterfall, cross-country skiing (weather permitting).

A nature-lovers paradise in every season. Deer are spotted regularly and occasionally one may hear of a bear sighting. Plus there is a Fox den just around the bend.

Down the road from Museum of the Hudson Highlands and Jones Farm.

Art lovers are minutes from Storm King Art Center and a short drive from DIA Beacon.

A vacation paradise in every season.

Commutable to NYC by train to Hoboken or Express bus to Port Authority.


Owner Profile: This is our third year renting out our cabin. We've enjoyed it tremendously over the past 20 years but our schedules are making it difficult to make it up every weekend as we use to.

We hope you get as much enjoyment out of this special place as we have over the years.

I chose this location because of the outstanding beauty and seclusion of the property. The close proximity to NYC was a fabulous addition to this charming getaway.

You will not believe that a house so situated close to NYC can possibly be this secluded and beautiful.

The mile long dirt road bordering a nature preserve makes you feel like you are vacationing miles from civilization.

The beauty of this property is that you feel cut off but you are not. If you so desire there are restaurants, movie theaters, transportation to the city and the Hudson River all within a 15 minute drive.

The Storm King Art Center is just down the road.

Hiking just out the front door and cross country skiing during the snowy winter months.

A stroll down the wooded dirt road is a perfect way to start and/or end your day.

Enjoy.
