About the Property

Quiet and serene, with activities and fun all close by.


Peaceful. Restorative. Healing.

Quiet, comfortable, and full of light and love, our stone cottage is the perfect place to escape NYC and renew your body, mind and soul.

Nestled in the woods just 1 hour from Manhattan in the hidden gem of Kent Lakes, NY, the cottage is the perfect country escape for a single, couple, or small family. The cottage is a great option for people who want a convenient country getaway without the hassle of owning a second home. Easy access to all major highways, parkways, and Metro-North make trips down to NYC a breeze.

Well-behaved pets are welcome, and the shaded, fenced-in run gives you peace of mind that your entire family – including the four-leggers – will be happy.

All around you, the grandeur and charm of the Hudson Valley awaits. Mountains, lakes, rivers…hiking, biking, swimming…antiques, farms, world-class gardens…snowmen, sledding, cross-country skiing – season after season, it’s all just minutes away. Cold Spring, Beacon, Hudson, and a host of other charming Hudson Valley towns are all just a short, scenic drive away. You’re close to everything while still being quiet and secluded.


The house is thoughtfully decorated without ever feeling fussy. It’s all designed to help you relax, let go, and breathe easy…like being in an old friend’s home. All of the amenities are included, there’s an office space where you can get work done, and there are numerous spots to curl up with a good book or just take in the views of the surrounding forest.

Unwind. Let go. Sleep in. Breathe easy. Take in the charm of the area, or enjoy the peace and quiet of doing nothing at all. Either way, you’ll feel relaxed and renewed.
