Farmhouse with Pool on Quiet Country Road near Hudson, NY

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Charming renovated farmhouse on a rural dead end road. The property is bordered on three sides by open pastures. The totally private 18x40 inground pool with shaded arbor overlooks a lovely hillside where cows graze.

The Catskill Mountains are visible in the distance and the poolside sunsets are spectacular. From the covered porch you can gaze at more pastoral views and our magnificent weeping willow tree. This is a wonderful place to relax.

The house interior is full of charming details: antique pine and maple furnishings, original wide board pine floors, woodburning stove, window seats, Italian tile floors in the kitchen and master bath, spacious bathrooms fitted with granite countertops and ceramic tile, etc. There are lovely views from every room.

The nearby towns of Hudson, Rhinebeck and Tivoli have wonderful restaurants, antique stores, and boutiques. Films, concerts and theatre are available year round at numerous venues such as the Frank Gehry designed concert hall at Bard College and Upstate Films in Rhinebeck. The Dutchess and Columbia County Fairgrounds have antiques fairs, crafts fairs and county fairs scheduled all summer. Orchards for fruit picking are all around us. The beautiful Hudson River Estates of Olana, Clermont and Montgomery Place are within easy driving distance.

Farmhouse with Pool on Quiet Country Road near Hudson, NY
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Wished I owned a country house as nice as this one!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented this house for 2 consecutive summers. Terrific location for seeing what the Hudson Valley has to offer. Unfortunately it's hard to leave the property. Hypnotic views, comfortable interiors and a pool that is totally private except for the cows that might come by to say hello.

Wonderful house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great relaxing time at this house. It is everything the description says it is, but the pictures can't capture the setting: rolling hills and farmland from every angle, peace and quiet. The pool is gorgeous. Would go back in a heartbeat. The owners are responsive and keep their house pristine.

Unbelievably Lovely

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this property - the house is cozy, comfortable and family-friendly and the setting is amazing! There's a big lawn with a few old trees, glorious sunsets over the rear fields, and a fantastic pool ( we enjoyed some late day visits from a wandering herd of near-silent and un-smelly cows in the neighboring field). Being just one of a few houses on a dead end road kept things quiet and great for young ones learning to ride bikes. While we felt like we were in the middle of nowhere when we were at the picture-perfect farmhouse, in reality, the center of Hudson and Red Hook were just a few minutes' drive away. Farm stands and great u-pick places are even closer. Just dreamy.
