Why Richard J. Hausner Interests chose Germantown

The beauty of the valley speaks for itself. Located 100 miles north of NYC, Columbia County is a slowed pace country wonder with surprising upsides: tremendous historic significance, stimulating cultural events, quality restaurants, quaint shopping, serious antiquing, abundant outdoor activities and sunsets matched by no other.

What makes this chalet unique

It's all about the view! The moment you step onto the ridge you will be taken away by the mountains and the mighty Hudson River. This multi-county area is steeped in historic properties and is the heart and soul of the Hudson River School of Painting. Artists Thomas Cole and Fredric Church built their estates a stone's throw up the river. Roosevelts, Vanderbilts and Astors have long called this valley their home.

Although there are ample gently rolling trails, hiiking around the entire 23 acres can be challenging as the steep slopes of the river and abutting kill jet up to a high ridge. This was once a Native American campground overlooking these bodies of water. Arrowheads and artifacts have been found here for years. The beauty is not lost on the abundant wildlife that feeds here. Wild turkeys, deer, ducks, geese and bald eagles are common visitors. It's a wonderful place to explore.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is amazing! We spent the morning at the farmers market and then went back to the house and made a big brunch! We hiked around the property and then took a swim... Now we're going to barbeque and eat by the pool. Tomorrow were going apple picking :-) not a bad weekend!

Paradise in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

This property is awesome, it has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing getaway. The pool is fabulous, the views breathtaking. The only possible thing that would make it better would be a king size bed, but even with just a queen my husband and I are trying to figure out when we can come back

We absolutely adored our stay at The Cottage. The house and grounds are gorgeous and we had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend. The pool/hot tub and grill are perfect touches and we loved all of the thoughtful details in the house. Thank you for a wonderful visit and we're hoping to return again soon!
