About Roxana Dorneanu
I am a real estate broker in New York City where I live during the week but cherish my weekends and holidays in the Hudson Valley. I discovered the area in the summer of 2004 when I rented a guest house for 3 months but come the fall I missed it so much I decided I needed to have something more permanent up there. I'm always sad leaving but I return to the city re-energized and serene.
Roxana Dorneanu purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2004
Why Roxana Dorneanu chose Red Hook
I had seen about 50 houses before I found this one. Being in the business I am very selective. I had driven up from the city that morning and had arrived early, before the listing broker had gotten there. I was so enchanted by the sound of the river and also the layout of the house. I LOVED the large kitchen as I love to cook; the double oven (had 14 people over for Thanksgiving that year) and the fact that it can accommodate a couch. I love having a couch in the kitchen.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Lounging on the deck listening to the river is incredibly soothing. Sleeping with the windows open in the summer is magical. I also like being close to the Taconic as I use the house year round and when the snow is heavy, it's nice to get home fairly quickly.

Beautiful “back yard”
Roxanne was quick to respond to questions.
We couldn’t use the deck because of rain, but it would be awesome on a good day.
3 comfortable bedrooms. The trundle in study not so comfortable for two people, maybe okay for one. Heat in bedrooms is individually controlled which is nice. It’s obvious that this is primarily a personal vacation home, with a lot of personal items, not a full time rental.
The entry to front door is up a slope that is tricky in rain, dark, with suitcases.
Amazing little getaway
We had a really nice weekend at the house! So beautifully maintained, clean, close to all the spots we liked to visit, couldn’t have been happier!
Thank you so much Renate and Brad! More improvements in the pipeline! I hope you got some nice apples at Rose Hill and treats from the farms in the area. Happy Fall!
Peaceful cozy home.
We were in the area for parents weekend at Bard so we were kind of busy all weekend, but it felt great to come back to a lovely home each evening. The new back deck overlooking the steam was beautiful.
Our host left great recommendations for sites to see and places to eat. Our daughter was already a fan of Taste Budd's cafe! Thanks for everything!
Great Month in Red Hook
We had a great time. The location was perfect. We were able to enjoy the area in all directions. Our guests enjoyed breakfast each morning on the deck. Roxana quickly responded to our needs with pleasure. We will return.
Larry and Pam,
Thank you for taking such good care of "our" special place. I just got back from spending 5 days at the house (right after you) and I was overwhelmed by how great everything looked. Thank you for caring for the lemon tree! I will send you 1/2 the harvest (2 lemons) when they ripen. That should be about 8 months from now. The photos of the mini-poodle guests is now affixed to the cookie jar. Thank you again and should you return and since you know the house intimately, I'd welcome your suggestions on how to make it a better and more comfortable experience. Roxana
Review of the Twin Falls Colonial in Red Hook
We stayed at Roxanna's lovely, secluded vacation home while attending our daughter's graduation from Bard. Roxanna was most attentive to our every need and extremely accommodating. The home offers everything one could want and we returned home rested and restored. We would definitely love to stay here again if we are in the vicinity!
Mi casa e su casa. Next time the lemons might be ripe for lemonade or perhaps the peaches would be ready to harvest.
My sisters and I stay for the Country Living Fair. We had a great time. The place was clean and organize. Very comfortable. The owner has a folder that states where everything is. She was also very accommodating. We will recommend this place again.
Thank you Josephine. You and your sisters are welcome back anytime. I'm happy you enjoyed the house and area as much as I do. All the best, Roxana
