Why Nicole Carroll chose Saugerties

I fell in love with Fishcreek Cottage the moment I first peeked into the windows.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the best things about the cottage is its setting, it's on one of those quintessential country roads. A lot of artists make Saugerties home, and our neighbors (many of whom are artists, writers or musicians) are really good people. ;)

Charming spot in Hudson valley

  • 5 of 5

I had a great experience staying here. The home is updated and well taken care of. It had everything we may have needed such as a comfy bed, ac, great shower in a renovated bathroom and kitchen essentials. A screened in porch, Roku, and nice backyard were bonuses. Highly recommend!

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Nicole's property is well kept and has a lot of charm. We spent our 1 year old daughter's birthday weekend and it was perfect. The house is on a beautiful quiet road but only a short 10 min drive to beautiful downtown where there are loads of stores and restaurants (plenty of organic / farm to table type of options). The house itself is charming, we enjoyed having a cup of tea on the porch, facing wilderness. Kitchen is well stocked with all necessities, bathroom toiletries are of good quality - trader Joe type of stuff. We would definitely come back here.

Our charming little cottage is located in the heart of the mid-Hudson Valley, exactly 2 hours north of NYC with easy access to everything you came for; nature trails, the Hudson River, Ski Resorts, great shopping and delicious locally grown food.

Ever wonder where NYC gets its water from, up here of course! Head west on RT 28 to experience the majestic Ashokan Reservoir. You will get a breathtaking view of the Catskill Mountains. Plan on walking, roller-blading or biking the flat 5-mile path. Ask a local photographer to point out the bald eagles nest and to give you a peek at their incredible photos.

The cottage is a stone’s throw from Opus 40 sculpture-park, and HITS (Horses in the Sun). I hate to swim in chlorinated water, do you? Stroll up the road about 7 minutes, and dip into a clear, crisp natural swimming hole - aww.

Are you channeling a hippie experience? Head over to Woodstock for a famed Midnight Ramble at Levon Helm's Studios, the legacy lives on. Want to see incredible photographs of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and others in their hay-day? Check out the lobby of the Bearsville Theater, and stay to hear some great acts.

The Woodstock Playhouse offers delightful plays. Don't forget to take in a concert at Maverick (it isn’t just for chamber music). We just saw our friend master bamboo flautist and saxophone player Steve Gorn - fantastic!

Indulge in a zillion films at the Woodstock Film Festival, or pop over the bridge to the other side of the Hudson for the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool festival where you might just see Johnny Depp shopping for sheep - I did, really!

In 1777, Kingston, NY (15 min away) was the first capital of NY. You can still walk around some of the beautiful old stone buildings in the Historic Stockade District, which is full of hipsters with a vibrant music scene. Check out Duo Bistro on John Street, or try one of the many new eateries springing up, Yum-Yum noodle bar won’t disappoint. Speaking of music, Pete Seeger folk music and social change, tour the Maritime Museum, home of the famed Hudson River Sloop, Clearwater. Get a bite to eat at Dolce for breakfast or lunch while you're down on the strand in Kingston. All this site seeing in Kingston is making me thirsty, I'm headed to Keegan Ales - our local brew.

Are you afraid of vampires? We aren't. Come to the Saugerties Garlic Festival – need I say more?

By the way did you know that the Hudson River is not just a river, it is a tidal estuary, an arm of the sea where salty seawater meets fresh water running off the land. Make sure to time the tide right for a dry hike out to the Saugerties lighthouse. Bring a picnic for the deck, and say hello to our friends Patrick, Anna and baby Cricket - the littlest lighthouse keeper in NY State.

Are you exhausted yet? I am! Let’s head back to the cottage to kick back, take a spa-shower, pour a glass of something, and watch the neighbor’s goats graze before we figure out whether we want to cook-in, or eat-out before melting into those divine artisan made beds.
