Welcome to the HeartsEase Mansion, a Hudson Valley National Registry Historic estate. As a guest to our Hudson Valley home, you join a long tradition of people who have made their way to this spectacular region known for its natural beauty, art, and cultural innovation.

Some background in that Moti & Ronit Peleg found the historic Heartsease mansion several years ago and immediately fell in love with it as it fit their Ego2Heart foundation perfectly. They spent several years restoring everything about it and hand picking all of it's amazing furniture and decorations themselves. Every detail was focused on, from the stunning bed and bath rooms to their amazing kitchen. The gorgeous decks / patios overlook the Hudson River and complete with a hot tub and gazebo on them. It was a true labor of love and a truly special place that they now want you to share and enjoy with them!

If you have been with us before, welcome back! If this will be your first time at HeartsEase, thank you for joining us.

HeartsEase is a 10,000 square foot Historic Luxury Mansion on the west side of Hudson River and directly across from the Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park. We sleeps 13-17 people in 5-7 gorgeous bedrooms and all with beautiful private bathrooms. Come enjoy for the weekend or holidays and make lasting memories together!

For less than five basic hotel rooms in crowded and noisy Manhattan, you can bring your friends or family just 90 minutes upstate and make lasting memories. We have 5 amazing bedrooms and each with a king sized bed and a beautiful private bathroom. Our sixth guest room has a king sized pull out couch and a single twin bed. Children can be accommodated and we do consider pets.

Check in is at 4pm and check out is at 11am and our property manager can pre-approve other time arrangements in advance. The mansion also offers spa style facilities including a hot tub on our deck which overlooks the Hudson River, a sauna and a small gym to workout in.

* Note that our 4th level master suite has a kind bed, living room and huge bathroom with a jacuzzi and dual sinks and can be rented out for an additonal charge of $250 per night as it the owners personal space.

The estate overlooks the Hudson River and is located less than 45 minutes from downhill skiing and hiking in the Catskill Mountains. We are 50 minutes from the elevated Walkway Over The Hudson and Hudson Valley rail trail, with its 22 miles of paved trails connecting Hopewell Junction to New Paltz. Other nearby hiking, cross-country skiing and paddling opportunities are the Black Creek Forest Preserve, Shaupeneak Ridge, John Burrough's Slabsides, Mohonk Preserve, Minnewaska State Park, the Wallkill and Rondout Creeks and of course, the stunning Hudson River. We are also very close to the Culinary Institute of America, Vassar College, Marist College, Bard College, SUNY New Paltz and about 45 minutes from the US Military Academy at West Point. Other local attractions are the Vanderbilt Mansion, Mills Mansion, FDR Home, Valkill (Eleanor Roosevelts home, yes she slept here), The Shawagunks, New Paltz, Woodstock, Millbrook, Kingston and much more!

PLEASE NOTE: We do not allow for large parties, weddings or events. The intent of the mansion is for the comfort of the 13-17 people who will be staying there...

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how wonderful this place was for us to have a great extended family reunion to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday celebration. From the minute we walked in and met Rudy Younger on Friday to the time we left on Sunday afternoon, we really enjoyed all the activities which we had planned for the weekend. Even the two youngest members of the family, my granddaughters, 4 and 2 had a fun time running around the house and enjoying the beauty of the landscape in the back of the property.

Rudy was most friendly and gave us a very warm welcome and a detailed tour of the house to explain all the facilities and amenities. The weather could not have been nicer and everyone enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor activities.

The house is truly historic one and has very good vibrations of a peaceful atmosphere. This peace was felt during a religious singing program which we conducted in the first floor Counselling Room on Sunday. We also had a great time when we went for the “Walk on the Hudson”. The family enjoyed the breakfasts at the Eveready Diner in Highland Park and dinner at the Great Palate.

It is truly a nice place for a weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city life.

Heartsease Mansion

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful & updated with all amenities needed. It has a fantastic view & is close to a variety of activities in the area. We were there for a girls getaway weekend, but it would also be wonderful for any type of large group including families. We had a fabulous time. Everyone in the house was comfortable as there was ample space, bedrooms, & bathrooms. The house is clean & well maintained. Rudy, the property manager, was excellent. He was helpful from the beginning of booking right through & after the weekend. I would definitely come back to this house again and/or recommend it to a friend.

The house was extremely well equipped, well laid out and a really great venue for large groups. We were 15 in total and had plenty of room for everyone.

The house was clean and well maintained!

The only downside about the house is that is did not have a decent sound system or tv, but beyond that we had no complaints at all!!

Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband planned a surprise getaway for my 40th with a bunch of our friends. This was a really beautiful location and house. Everything was in beautiful condition and clean. Most importantly the common spaces were gracious and abundant.

If I had to ask for any improvements I would say that the house could use a whole system water filter as the dishes, glasses and utensils always looked unclean even though they were not and we found the tap water too slaty to drink.

Otherwise a big big success. I would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind and appreciative review as Ben and his family were simply great to meet and have in this beautiful home. They were the perfect guests and we hope to have them back again soon. As for the kitchen water issue, the home has a well and with hard water which does leave stains on the utensils and cook ware but it is harmless and the water safe to drink. Overall, this was a great experience for everyone and a pleasure to be a part of - Rudy (Heartsease property manager)....
