Situated well off the road in a country setting on a corner wooded and park-like setting of 5 acres, my guest cottage is spacious, (the main room is 18' x 18') fully furnished with a queen size bed, and has a fully equipped separate galley kitchen and bath. The cottage has slate counters and floors in the kitchen and bath, and a working corner wood stove. Located about 7 miles from the center of Rhinebeck or Red Hook, 4 miles from Omega Institute, about 10 - 15 minutes to Bard College, 6 miles to the Taconic Parkway. As a studio, it is really suitable for 1 or 2 guests only. Off street parking, handicap accessible, best bang for your buck in Rhinebeck. My house is also on the property but the angle between the main house and the guest house still allows for very good privacy. Please note that there is a large stand-in slate shower with great water pressure, but there is no tub. There is a beautiful pond on the property as well partially visible from the cottage. Bring your fishing pole for catch and release. The bass in the pond are very cooperative! This is a great area for walking, hiking, biking and driving around visiting the numerous historic sites in the area. Also, there are numerous excellent restaurants in Rhinebeck

About merri cook
We live on the property so are here to assist you with anything you need during your stay. Our house is situated about 75 feet from the guest cottage but because of the angle of the two building's location, there is still privacy between the house and guest house. With Homeaway since March 2015, everyone who has ever stayed in the cottage has loved it.
merri cook purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why merri cook chose Rhinebeck
privacy, serenity, quiet country park-like setting, yet close to the many historic sites in the Hudson Valley
What makes this Cottage unique
Enjoy the country quiet while still being close to all of the sights and attractions of Rhinebeck and the Hudson Valley. My property is very pretty and neighboring homes are only remotely visible only in the winter. When the trees fill in, privacy is excellent as I am on a corner wooded lot. There is a nice 5 mile loop on a side road that even has sections where the road is still dirt, not paved! That's the country for you! There are friendly neighbor dogs and cats who we do not allow in the guest house, but who are pleasant visitors.

Great cottage - perfect for my small family. We were in town for the fair, it is located about 15 mins from the fairgrounds, plenty of parking and a small pond in the back - could hear the frogs all night long, we really enjoyed our stay
Thanks Karla, hope you will stay with us again if you come back for the awesome Dutchess County Fair. So funny that you were coming to the fair from Buffalo and I was heading to your hometown in Buffalo to drop my daughter at Suny Buffalo!
The guest house was clean, well stocked, great little kitchen, and even nicer in reality than the photos showed.
The owner is most gracious and friendly, making us feel very welcomed. We will definitely stay there again when in the area.
Glad you enjoyed the guest cottage. I enjoyed having you as guests!
Perfect for an Omega retreat
This is THE PERFECT accommodation for an Omega retreat. I traveled alone for a workshop at Omega. Merri's cottage was better than I anticipated. It is incredibly cute and clean. Although I brought my own percolator, etc., she had provided everything anyone would need for an extended stay, with the exception of food, of course. Omega is, literally, a 7 minute drive away. And I drove slowly. Honestly, I loved my Omega workshop but I found it difficult to leave the cottage because it was so peaceful. I would like to return with my husband and explore the area. It's an enchanting place and this cottage is a gem. Thank you, Merri.
Thanks Kate, glad you enjoyed it and hope we'll see you back in the area again!
This was a wonderful cottage for a weekend getaway. The owner was delivering newly laundered towels when we arrived. Everything we needed was provided. The bed was very comfortable, the bath terrific, the kitchen area well appointed. Although the owner's home is located near to the guest cottage it felt private and secluded. My husband and I would definitely stay here again. I am going to recommend the cottage to friends who attend the Rhinebeck fiber festival. So much nicer than a generic hotel! Some reviews mentioned a water odor but there was none. A lovely, very well maintained property!
Thanks so much! It was a pleasure having you!
Fantastic. Easy. Quiet. Great for a couple.
Perfect for one person or a couple. Merri was super easy and accommodating.
The property was easy to find. Location was great. Only ten minute drive to the adorable town of Rhinebeck where you have everything you need for a great weekend get away. We went there for a wedding weekend but can't wait for our next trip back and stay. Comes with a full kitchen, wood burning stove, newly renovated bathroom.
A last minute getaway weekend to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary. We live in Manhattan and wanted a bit of greenery and solitude: found it here! The cabin was spotless, had a full kitchen (with all-important coffee maker), a wood-burning stove (that we really did not need, but fired up anyway), a big comfortable bed and – best of all for us City folk - an outdoor 'deck' of our very own! The photos don't do it justice. The cabin was also stocked with with things like toiletries, bottled water, dishes and glass ware. We had complete privacy and could really enjoy our all too sort stay. The location is off a side road, not much traffic, but only about 15 minutes from the center of Rhinebeck. We were also visited by a couple of local dogs and one cat. Our hostess Merri was wonderful. Among other things, she provided a list of local eateries (with her personal recommendations) and her cell number if we needed anything else. We didn't, but we are already planning our next visit!
Thanks so much, Maury! You were nice guests to have because you were so clearly happy with the serenity of the guest cottage! Glad I could contribute to a happy 32nd anniversary!
