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.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 1994
Why 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!!

Get away and stay in touch
A quiet retreat with all the amenities of home--well stocked kitchen (and fridge!), reliable WIFI and TV with no traffic noise, no sirens, just wind in the trees. We were attending wedding events in Hudson, so the drive was longer than optimal but not a big deal, and good to have an escape from the crowd at times.
Very peaceful and comfortable. Agree with all the other reviewers
Maureen was a wonderful host and made it very easy and stress free to adjust to the house. The house was just what I was looking for- rustic, yet with all the comforts, in a quiet and peaceful spot, with many extra touches supplied by Maureen to make the stay relaxing.
Lovely setting and equally lovely house, very close to great food and entertainment yet very private
This is a lovely spot, very beautifully situated on top of a hill and set back off the road. The setting is peaceful and inspiring. The house is also very lovely. Maureen has thought of everything. It is a perfect place to visit in any season. And should you wish to venture out, there are wonderful restaurants, great bookstores, music venues, talks, and other entertainment. All of this is quite close by. And it is only a 2 hour drive from NYC.
Well appointed, serene and calming!
This property was absolutely perfect for our family of 4! My daughter was so close to the horseshow and we enjoyed coming back to this charming, air conditioned, clean, cottage at the end of each long, hot day! It is nestled into the woods and leaves you with an impression of serenity and comfort! We enjoyed our stay here and hope to visit again!
A Saugerties Area Hideaway
We spent four nights at this cottage, which is a few miles outside downtown Saugerties in West Camp. The property is well tended and is surrounded by woods. If you want a remote place to stay that is quiet but is a relatively short drive to the neighboring towns of Woodstock and Rhinebeck, this fits the bill. The cottage has been modernized with air conditioning, which is essential during the hot summer weather when we stayed there. The kitchen and bathroom facilities are very basic but serviceable. There is a spacious living room with a small t.v. (Direct T.V.) and a fireplace for the cold weather. Finally, there is a glassed-in patio that overlooks the woods. There is also a table and chairs to sit outside, as well as a grill. The Internet access works very well, which is important to us. Guests should be forewarned that because the cottage is off the main road, the final access road before getting to the path leading to the cottage is unpaved and filled with ruts and rocks that will be hard on a medium size or small car. Go very slowly over the 100 or so feet of unpaved road.
Thanks for the feedback. I can fill the ruts in the driveway. It will still be a dirt road - but smooth. 😊�
Serene Setting in Saugerties
We recently visited this charming house from Philly for a wedding at a nearby farm and it was even better than expected! Maureen was great with communicating directions and accommodating our check in needs. The place is even better in person, decorated beautifully and really gives you that woodsy/secluded vibe we were looking for. The beds were comfy and the bathroom was renovated very nicely. The yard is great and the view is gorgeous, we will definitely be coming back in the near future!
Lovely wooded setting in the mid Hudson Valley close to Saugeries and Woodstock. Enjoy hiking, swimming, leisurely drives, fine food and quiet relaxation. Check out the Lazy Swan Golf and Country Club, 5 minutes away, for a fine meal or a round of golf with views of the Catskills. Prime location for Horses in the Sun, HITS, visitors!
