About The Owner

I am an Interior Designer, originally from the Midwest and Upstate New York. My husband, Ross, grew up in the cottage, he is now a fine artist and painting professor.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1994

Why The Owner chose Saugerties

This property is my husband's childhood home. His parents rented, then purchased the cottage from a local landowner in the mushroom business. The house is filled with warm memories as well as examples of Ross's early paintings. He was and is strongly influenced by the beaurtiful Hudson Valley light!

What makes this cottage unique

The quiet setting is truly magical. I will never forget the first time I drove up the hill and saw the house and stone chimney surrounded by cedar trees. It is a special place!!

Cozy and Charming Cottage in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and communication with the host was seamless. The space was clean, comfortable, and wonderfully decorated with a modern meets rustic feel. We used the kitchen and the outdoor grill for cooking. We loved sitting outside on the patio in the evening. The house is located in a very quiet area tucked away in the trees. The pictures on Home Away don't really do the space and the surrounding property justice. I recommend staying here without hesitation for anyone who is looking for a relaxing getaway. Four people are easily accommodated with two bedrooms handy. The living room area is quite large and is great for just laying around and relaxing. The location is also quite convenient to much of what the Catskills has to offer; most things being within a 30-45 minutes drive. We had an excellent stay and will stay here again when we visit the area in the future.

Cozy and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th trip and it was better than ever.

We enjoy cooking in the kitchen and on the outdoor grill.

Both Nights we made a fire in the living room fireplace.

This was our first visit in the Fall. We spent the day visiting apple orchards.

We will return!

This was our second time traveling down to stay at Maureen's amazing cottage for the HITS horse show. Everything is clean and comfortable, really easy to settle right in. Maureen takes extra care in making the beds with beautiful linens, puts flowers throughout the house and fills the bathroom with luxurious whites towels. After a long day in the dust and sun, we looked forward to her tiled shower with great water pressure and plenty of hot water. There is history throughout the house, it's evident it has been well loved and cared for throughout the years. Thank you!

Lovely Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the quiet and solitude of this location. Yet, we were so close to town and all the activities we wanted to enjoy such as visiting Woodstock and the lighthouse. Thank you for a lovely weekend and mostly, thank you for allowing us to bring our dog along for the stay!

Cozy and stunning all in one!

  • 5 of 5

This adorable cottage was a great getaway. We toured the whole Hudson Valley and used this as home base. The views are spectacular and the house is oh so comfy. Fresh flowers greeted us and a brand new bathroom with products included was a bonus. I will return here for sure!
