About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

PLEASE NOTE! $200 is base ( single in apt ) price only. Check Notes section for other rate details.The house is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac high on a wooded hill overlooking The Hudson River and Catskill Mountains with some of the area's most breathtaking views. The sun sets right in front of the house every night and slightly to the south in winter. The two bedroom apt. is approximately 1000 square feet and located on the first floor of this modern and well maintained home. The apt is newly renovated. I installed new hardwood floors, sisal carpets, A/C and air purification system, new beds and bedding, some new furniture, fresh paint, new screens on porch and Flat screen TV. It has a well lit and private entry 50 ft.from parking. Bathroom with shower, large living room with fireplace ( firewood included ) which can accommodate more guests if necessary, Fully equipped kitchen, covered, screened in porch and large deck area with small outdoor dining table, Adirondack chairs and hammock.

I am an artist/designer living quietly upstairs. The two zones are very private and separate. The decor is tasteful, uncluttered and clean. Dogs are welcome depending on their temperament and size. Please mention ahead of time if you would like to bring your pup. They would not be permitted on furniture or beds and must be curbed on the premises and picked up after. I would love to share my idyllic setting and assist in anyway that might make your visit more comfortable.

The charming village of Rhinebeck is four miles north teeming with restaurants and shopping. I am surrounded on all sides by grand Hudson River Villas many of which are open to the public. I live in the midst of a NY State park where you will find miles of trails for hiking and biking. Norrie point is a public marina for sailing and kayaking. Southlands is an equestrian center just up the road. Further afield, Bard and Vassar Colleges have plenty to offer.. Tennis, indoor swimming, sauna, art collections, music venues just to name a few. Hudson offers the best antiquing around while Millbrook has vineyards and the most bucolic country this side of 'The Pond', Downhill skiing is 45 minutes away, Catamount in the Berkshires or Windham and Hunter Mountains in The Catskills.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I have lived in Rhinebeck since 1990, my family has lived here since 1832. My kids are happily living elsewhere and they left a big vacancy so I am wanting to fill it with polite, friendly travelers who are curious about this part of the world. I am an artist /designer who lives upstairs with my pug, who will be especially happy to see you! I love to travel myself and hope you will find everything here that you might have at home or would expect to find in a good hotel or fully equipped house. I am accommodating, quiet and unobtrusive. Please let me know if you need anything to make your stay more comfortable or if you want suggestions to explore the area.

Why the Owner Chose Staatsburg, NY, USA:
I bought this property immediately upon seeing the view. I instantly saw the potential and love living here!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The long distance views and sunsets will make it hard to tear yourself away! While you drive through a neighborhood to get here, once you rise up the vertiginous drive and arrive at the house, you will think you are miles from civilization. It's peaceful, quiet and occupies the highest geological point in the immediate area.
