About Jody Windland
I am 57 yrs old, married for over 27 years and have three beautiful daughters. I grew up in Brooklyn NY, went to John Dewey High School and Florida Institute of Technology for training in aviation and air commerce. I am CEO of United Software Developers and my wife works with SNAP running a program that finds volunteers to help and spend time with Senior Citizens. People ask why do I rent the house out. With the kids grown, going to college, we just do not use the home as much anymore. I now love to have other families enjoy our home as much as we do. It also helps with the 2 current college tuitions......
Jody Windland purchased this House in 2002
Why Jody Windland chose Coxsackie
I have a lot of family that lives in the Tri-State area and with homes right on top of each other, I wanted a home where our very large extended family can spend many family gatherings together with room to spare. I was very fortunate to find this perfect house that is only 2 hours away from NYC. The many years of family get togethers and watching my nieces, nephews, cousins grow so close to each other is just priceless !!
What makes this House unique
I immediately fell in love with this home when I saw the 3.5 acres of flat open land was in the backyard with a private sandy beach on the Hudson River where you can swim in fresh water. It did not take long before the fire pits were built for the countless outdoor barn fires, smores and spooky stories. With so much open space there was no reason NOT to add the batting cage, volleyball, play ground, game room, karaoke stage, surround sound systems. To be able to hang out with my adult friends and family and all the kids NOT wanting to leave because they are bored has made everything we did so worth it. I just love it when I hear the kids begging their parents to stay longer.

Excellent space for large groups to relax and hang out
The game room is beyond anything you can imagine. Had a group of college friends together for the weekend and we loved the space. It is nearly impossible to find a space for a large group that compares with this one. Owner was very easy to deal with and responsive to any requests or questions that I had. A pleasure.
Amazing New Years
I just returned from an amazing family get together to celebrate the New year. I really do not know where to begin. First, the owner (Jody) was hands down the best. He is super accommodating, knowledgeable and responsive. He gave us many recommendations. I truly felt as if I knew him for years (that’s how great he was to deal with). The house exceeded our expectations, pictures do not do it justice. We were a group of 16 (four families of 4), the house was huge, we did not hear the kids the whole time we were there when not together. To our surprise there were so many sitting rooms that the pictures didn’t quite depict, my favorite was the one with radiant heat flooring (considering temperatures barely hit 10 degrees on two days). As I mention the weather, our greatest regret is not really utilizing all of the amazing outdoor space (trampoline, batting cages, basketball hoop). Even with the cold we did manage to enjoy an evening warming up by the fire pit, my husband wasn’t going home without starting one of his famous bonfires. In any other home all that Indoor time with that many kids could be a recipe for disaster but this house has a game room to keep even the most bored children/teens/ big kids (us adults) entertained for hours. Where do I start there was a poker table, darts, ping pong, foosball, air hockey, pool table, multiple reclining seats and by far the crowd favorite...karaoke. I don’t just mean a small karaoke machine I’m talking the real deal with strobe lights and stage included. We really enjoyed this, by far one of our favorites. The beds in the bedrooms were very comfortable, the house was clean. The kitchen was well stocked, everything you could think of and then some. They even have a rice cooker. The owners truly pay so much attention to detail and you can tell they take pride and care in their property. I have rented many properties and never have we been supplied with paper towels and bath tissue to last the whole trip. Every bathroom had name brand shampoos, conditioners and soap (again typical of a hotel not a house rental). I truly can go on and on about how wonderful this home is and what an amazing owner to deal with. Only negative thing to say is Mother Nature was not on our side but I think that calls for a repeat trip so we can fully experience both the indoor and outdoor entertainment and fun. Thank you Jody And family for sharing your beautiful home with us. Great family experience will definitely be returning.
Great for all!
I went to this beautiful house with 10 of my co-workers. The house has plenty of space for all of us with areas to get away too! The upgrades to the bathrooms are perfect! The game room and bar is amazing and the back deck and yard gives you so many possibilities. You can relax and roast marshmallows while over looking the river, play a game of volley ball, football or just practice in the bating cages. Some of us ventured out on the kayaks for a relaxing tour of the river. Great overall experience!
Beautiful property with lots to do!
We loved being on the river! This property offers all kinds of games and activities to keep the whole crowd happy! The owners were easy to work with and the place was very clean and nice! Great stay!
Our 50th Anniversay Celebration
My husband and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren at Hudson Hideaway. With so many of us ages 4-71, I was a little concerned that someone might not have fun. Boy, was I wrong! There was plenty of room and so much to do. The kids (big and small) loved the batting cage, indoor and outdoor basketball, trampoline, etc. But the biggest hit was the karaoke stage. Everyone
joined in, even our 4 and 6 year old grandsons sang a sweet rendition of
"Let It Go".
After our anniversary party on Saturday night we went down to the dock to view the fireworks display that the town put on for their festival. Jody told us that we would feel like it was our own special show and he was right.
Our teenage grandchildren asked when our next family milestone is so we can return to Hudson Hideaway to celebrate. It was the perfect time for us at an amazing home. Jody certainly knows how to make his guests happy. We do look forward to a return visit.
It's more than you expect!
Upon arrival to this quiet neighborhood nestled on the river, we open the door to a great room and quickly moved the crowd to the patio which was an epic view. As we went through the house room after room, bed after bed as if there was no end. We finally make it to the game room which kept us occupied for hours. Jody quickly welcomed us with a walk through via phone and made himself available throughout the weekend. My party was 22 men, there was not a dull moment and we all maintained occupied with the amenities this house is equipped with. All I could suggest is a second fridge, swimming pool and more time to enjoy. The pictures only give you a glimpse of what this house truly is, a great getaway of fun. We will definitely be back.
Our house is on a quiet street right on the Hudson River. Albany is a 25 minute drive with huge shopping malls, dining, movie theatres and more. Like Skiing? We are a 35 minute drive to Hunter Mountain and other ski slopes and this is the perfect house for large ski groups. Hudson is a 20 minute drive with all the quaint shops and great restaurants. Just minutes from the house is plenty of shopping, drive-in theatre, Pizza, Chinese, Ice-cream, seafood and more.
