About Bruce Stalnaker

We both lead very hectic life styles and really needed an escape from it all. We built this beauty starting back in 2007 and continue to improve it.

Bruce Stalnaker purchased this chateau / country house in 2007

Why Bruce Stalnaker chose New York

The Hudson River view is amazing and one can see all the way to the Saugerties Light House.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Incredibly comfortable home built with a lot of thought. The three level deck on the south side offers quite the views as does the wrap around deck on the main level. Drive back the long driveway and experience heaven on earth. It will be hard to leave this home to experience the countless things this area offers!


Located in the Malden section of Saugerties, NY on a bluff over looking the Hudson River and the Saugerties Light House. Minutes to NYS Thruway, Woodstock and Hits!

A+ location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for 2 weeks as my daughter and her friend were horse showing at HITS. The location was A+ literally a minute drive to the horse show and especially when you have to be there at 6am!! It is also 5 minutes from the town of Saugerties. The house is lovely - 4 bedroom and 4 bathrooms. Bruce, the property manager, was very responsive for any issues that we had. We would definitely come back! Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Bruce is the best. Home was comfortable for Christmas!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our Christmas visit and were able to host our son for a couple of nights, as well. The home is comfortable and Bruce was attentive to details and helped us get one of the gas fireplace pilots on when something occurred that had interfered. We had trouble with going from audio CDs to TV for games on the day after Christmas and ended up watching the games without sound. Neither our son nor my hubby could get it resolved the second time it occurred, though we did it switched initially for Christmas football games. The location is lovely with deer and wild turkeys, barges on the Hudson and comfortable beds, furniture and great kitchen. Again, Bruce is a champ!

Best rental in Saugerties

  • 5 of 5

House is brand new, and feels immaculate, like you're the first one staying there. The view of the river is spectacular, the amounts of space and amenities are excellent. Bruce is great to work with, very responsive and was able to fix the one small problem we had way faster than one could have expected. House is very close to village of Saugerties, easy access to Diamond Mills and any other attractions. Everyone who stayed in the house was amazed that a property of this sort was even available and impressed by how great it was.

perfect getaway and HITS rental

  • 5 of 5

Love this house!!!! We stayed here for a long weekend with another family from our barn (9 of us total). We needed a place that was close to HITS and this was perfect--1 mile from the show!!! I couldn't believe it when we drove in, the views are spectacular, the pictures really don't do it justice. You overlook the river and it is the best way to begin and end a day. The house is immaculate but comfortable, with plenty of room for entertaining. We had a over a bunch of families from our barn over for dinner and everyone was so jealous, you can't find a better place in Saugerties! Close to town, close to the show, and great to just spend time in and enjoy the surroundings. Bruce is amazing to deal with, so quick to respond and helpful with any questions. I highly recommend the castle, you won't regret it!

Gorgeous Rental Castle!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed new years eve weekend and we can't say enough good things about this house! The home was immaculate, spacious and welcoming, with views from a wrap around deck that are without comparison. The layout of the space was so helpful for our group of 8, each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom, both master bathrooms are straight out of a luxury hotel and the owners thought of everything, even robes and a binder full of info about the area with a welcome note. We have done this each new years for 5 years and couldn't have been more blessed to find a rental home like this to ring in 2013!

great place!

  • 5 of 5

our family stayed there recently for the weekend. It's very nicely located close to saugerties. The house was clean and very comfortable. Multiple bathrooms really helped with 10 people staying there. Bruce, the manager, was very helpful and even lent us an air mattress for the kids. Overall great experience.
