Built in 1869 and restored in 2001, this 2 story carriage house is set on an acre of land in the village of Cherry Valley, nestled between the Catskill and Adirondack Mountains. Surrounded by gorgeous gardens, tall trees, stunning fall foliage, you have the sense of total privacy along with the convenience of walking around the corner to enjoy the local restaurants. The house includes 2 bedrooms with a 3rd sleeping area, 2 baths, a large kitchen and a beautiful working fire place in a sunken living room, with a downstairs sun room, an upstairs vine covered deck and a large family room. Plenty of space for a large family, and a washer and dryer are on site.
For you history buffs, Cherry Valley was an important link between the Mohawk and the other Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy. In 1738, the village, originally known as The Lindesay Patent, which was land in the Mohawk Valley under King George, later became known as Cherry Valley, the site of the Cherry Valley Massacre, one of the most notorious events of the Revolutionary War on November 11, 1778. And yes, George Washington slept here! Cherry Valley was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988 and you can visit the Cherry Valley Museum for more about the village’s place in history.
Cherry Valley is rich with artistic endeavors. CV Artworks hosts a series of concerts, openings and events such as the international kite festival and the sculpture trail, right in the center of town. Check the web site to see what is going on while you are in town. (www.cvartworks.org)
