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!!

Perfect city escape
Absolutely perfect, charming home in a beautiful setting. Maureen goes above and beyond to make sure her guests feel comfortable. You'll appreciate the little things like the home's unique decor, fresh flowers, and plenty of firewood for the weekend. It was also very clean. We hope to return soon!
Great! The hammock will be up soon!!
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!
A hideaway paradise
Loved it so much we are going back again.
My wife and I were fortunate to be able to stay for a long weekend. It was the best escape from the city we have had in a long time! The house is gorgeous, secluded, high up on a hill, (w/fabulous views) , and private. We enjoyed the fireplace, bird watching, traveling to Hudson and Saugerties for a look-see, and the general peace and quiet. We were lucky to have two blue sky days. The morning of the third day we awoke to a beautiful gentle snowfall. Couldn't ask for more. Maureen was a great and quick communicator too. Thanks Maureen! We hope to return.
Comfortable, Cozy and Private
We had a great weekend getting away from the big smoke. Maureen couldn't have been more accommodating and was sure we were settled in. Highly recommend a quick trip in to the mountains to relax and recharge at the artists retreat! You won't be disappointed. We will be back.
Quaint, clean, spacious and tucked away
Little touches like extra phone chargers, fresh flowers throughout, fresh apples, fire wood already set up with kindling in the fireplace were just icing on the cake at this beautiful private property. Also, Maureen is a very attentive and responsive host.
So happy you enjoyed it!
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!
