Property description

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 13-15 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 full 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.

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!

Smaller weddings or special events of 50 people or less will be considered.

PLEASE NOTE: We no longer allow for parties or events over 50 people in attendance so this estate is not available for large weddings or similar type events.
