About the property

Quiet and forested 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house

You're considering renting a modern saltbox house, perched on a hilly wooded property, overlooking pristine Columbia County Conservancy land. Meals cooked on the Viking stove or on the Weber taste better. On summer nights you may be lulled to sleep by the sound of frogs in the nearby creek.

- 2 hours from NYC

- From the house: if you're inclined toward outdoor sports, there is no shortage of great routes for running, road and off-road cycling, and of course long walks.

- Nearby destinations: swimming in Guilder Pond, Catamount, Hudson Valley Rail Trail, Lake Taghkanic State Park, kayaking in Copake Lake, swimming and fitness center at Taconic Hills School

- Short drive to Hudson (NY): antique shopping, restaurants, music at Helsinki, movie theaters, Time Space Limited, Amtrak, many chain stores

- Short drive to Great Barrington (MA): restaurants, Guido's Fresh Market, Big Y, shopping, movies

- Easy drives to Berkshire destinations: Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Mass MOCA, the Norman Rockwell Museum, The Clark, Shakespeare and Co., the outlets in Lee

2 bedrooms with full-size beds and connected bath

1 bedroom with queen-size bed and adjacent bath

1 bedroom with 2 twin beds

Except for the basement, guests have access to the whole house. Long term guests pay for services such as electricity, gas, cleaning, yardwork, telephone and internet.

About Jeff Singleton

Likes running, cycling, grilling, reading by the woodburning stove, listening to music and mowing my own lawn.

Jeff Singleton purchased this chateau / country house in 1999

Why Jeff Singleton chose Hillsdale

Fell in love with this property because of its easy access to many loops of practically traffic-free running on dirt roads, miles of well-paved road cycling routes, and the quiet seclusion.
