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 Saugerties

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.

Incredible just like the first time! Beautiful cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in the cottage, and we loved it just as much as the first time. It's extremely cozy, private, and just beautiful. Everything in the home has been placed there to create this feeling. The owners are just as lovely as the home and made us feel so welcomed. It's super close to Hunter Mountain, as well as Saugerties village, Woodstock etc. WE can't wait to go again!!!

Great hospitality in a wonderful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were truly impressed by the warm welcome we received. Waiting were apple pastries, fruit and snacks and a refrigerator stocked with water, eggs, butter, cream and milk for coffee and yogurt. Very thoughtful. The cottage was very comfortable and had everything you would needed for an enjoyable stay. We would definitely stay at the Blue Mountain cottage again!

Lovely hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin in Saugerties is charming. Great bed, nicely appointed living room. Jolene had snacks and breakfast food waiting for us, and everything was fresh and inviting. The location is a short drive to many Hudson Valley attractions, Thomas Cole Estate, Olana, Rhinebeck, Rhinecliff, Hudson, etc. Strongly recommended for an upstate weekend getaway.
