Car: Necessary

Shakespeare on the Hudson and the estate's secluded mansions are a destination for tranquility and enjoyable gathering. The beautiful landscape and comfortable spacious acomodations makes this Hudson Valley property an ideal venue for gatherings and festivities of all sizes and configurations.

Located on the Hudson River. With a long private driveway. Very Private and wonderfully secluded.

Imagine..your own pebble beach on the Hudson River....

The River House offers eleven comfortable bedrooms, and 7 1/2 bathrooms - a sprawling masterpiece (loft style) that is a mere 200 feet from the Hudson River. Including three spacious master suites, and a brand new Sun Cal spa tub.

Minutes from Hudson, New York (recently named one of the 10 coolest cities in the US.)

Other Activities: Go to Olana, where Frederick Church put his hat.

Visit Hudson, NY by ferry from the village of Athens.

For restaurants (from the ultra-chic to the down and dirty), art events, or just hanging.

Antiquing is the passion for many who come here. Saugerties, Hudson, Woodstock, Coxsackie and Athens are some treasure-hunting locations of interest.

Striped Bass come swarming up the river in late April- June.

It is not unusual to pull a 25 pound fish out of the river; this is one of the best places to fish the Hudson River. You can fish from shore and catch your own herring from the Corlear (Shakespeare) Creek- which runs through the property.

This property is only one hour from major attractions, such as:

Saratoga / Saratoga Race Track and Casino

Six Flags Theme Park

2 Water Parks

Health and Wellnes Spa's

Golf

Bald eagles are abundant in the sky above; so are blue herons, hawks, and owls of fantastic variety. Deer are your neighbors.

Golf: Windham Country Club

Windham Country Club is an 18-hole public golf course located in the scenic Northern Catskills of New York State. Designed in 1928 by Len Raynor.

Also just minutes away:

SunnyView Golf

Rainbow Golf

Catskill Country Club

Ski: 20 minutes from Windham ski area, which is has recently made significant improvements to their wonderful mountain.

Hunter Mountain is 25 minutes away- just as exciting.

2 hours by Amtrak from NYC, 20 minutes from Albany.
