About Jolene Adams

We are artists in the field of film and theatre. After years of city living both in NYC and LA, we have finally realized our dream of buying a home in the country with a guest house for our large family and artist friends who want to retreat from their busy worlds to write, paint, rehearse new works or just enjoy the sights and rest.

Jolene Adams purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Jolene Adams chose Hudson Valley

We have been looking for the right place for five years and dreaming of the right place for many more. We knew we wanted an old stone house on enough acreage to feel away from it all but close enough to people so we wouldn't be isolated. Close enough to NYC but far away enough to be in the country. We wanted lots of old trees. And, if it wasn't too much to hope for, some water on the property too. When we saw the incredible BlueMountain House built in 1793 with it's sweet guest house, both newly renovated, it was love at first sight!

What makes this cottage unique

Both the main house and the guest house are beautifully and loving restored. The landscape design is very special, so natural and rustically sophisticated if that makes any sense! Our favorite thing is sitting outside with our morning coffee and watching the birds and the occasional chipmunk or deer forage nearby.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Small, but cozy. No musky smell and a welcoming barrage of food to greet us. The one bedroom and pull out air mattress was plenty for our four member family and a great location close to things we wanted to do.

Enchanting. The entire place was like a one big hug.

Jolene was the most wonderful host. The cottage was super clean with sweet touches of wildflowers, fresh muffins, and a basket of fruit. We really felt the love.

Wonderful cottage in the woods near Saugerities

  • 5 of 5

Updated and charming cottage in the woods. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Near a stream and very convenient jumping off point to other locations in the Hudson Valley and the Catskills. We absolutely loved this place and recommend it without reservation.

Perfect getaway weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at the guest house!! It was perfect in every way for us!! Easy access to the Newburgh airport, local shops and restaurants and the Mountain Jam Festival. The guest house is so welcoming, cozy and beautifully decorated!! The attention to detail is excellent!! Walking by the creek and enjoying the weather was such a wonderful change from where we live in Florida! I highly recommend this home away from home and hope we can return soon!

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a lovely place! It was super clean and the decor was perfect. Super homey and cozy and lovely for a weekend. We had our dog with us and he loved exploring the area and dipping into the creek.

Jolene was kind enough to leave us muffins when we got there, and the cottage has everything you need, from a spatula down to towels.

Thank you again for hosting us!! We had a great time!
