Our idyllic house is in the heart of the Hudson Valley. Located a short distance from skiing, rivers and the Shawagunk mountains and Minnewaska State Park with hiking, biking, trail walking and wine tasting all in the area. Less than 90 minutes from NYC or Albany, across the Hudson river from Rhinebeck and Poughkeepsie and a short ride to New Paltz, Kingston and Woodstock.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We live in NYC and enjoy weekends and holidays at our lovely country house, nicknamed The Fortress of Solitude. As our children get older, we can't be there as often as we like. We designed the house for cooking, relaxing and entertaining friends who come to visit and never want to leave.

Why the Owner Chose Rosendale, NY, USA:
Our house is perfect for families that want to be together to cook, relax and explore the area - or just stay in. There is much to do nearby, but enjoying time in the house is equally as satisfying. From nearby golf courses, State parks with hiking trails and Hudson Valley farmer's markets, the area is full of things to do and explore.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Whether in front of the fireplace making s'mores and roasting chestnuts in winter or having drinks by the pool while the grill is warming up for a summertime barbecue, we love the house all year round. It's quiet, with only a few deer, wild turkey and red tailed hawks to keep you company, but just 15 minutes from the towns of Stone Ridge and New Paltz. We are about 1 hour 30 minutes from NYC.
