About the Property
Taconic Mountain views! 2 Bedrooms, 1 & 1/2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
Right in the heart of the Hudson Valley/Berkshire corridor, Boston Corners Brookside is within a 30 minute scenic drive (or less) to the many private schools in the area. It is perfect for weekend visits or campus tours.
Tanglewood Music Center is a beautiful 40 minute drive up North Route 22, and just over the Massachusetts border. (We'll share some of our lawn tickets in July)
The Wassaic station of the Metro North Railroad is about 25 minutes away, and Amtrak has a station in nearby Hudson , 40 minutes away. Ask us about local rental car companies.
The history buff will appreciate being near the Roosevelt, Vanderbilt and Martin Van Buren National Historic Sites, and a unique aerodrome.
Art lovers will enjoy local galleries and arts walks as well as Olana and the Thomas Cole home and museum. The Berkshires are minutes away. A very close-by auction house has a monthly sale of antiques, art and Americana.
Staying true to the pre-war period when the house was built, there is plenty of woodwork, and an old fashioned 3 season sun porch. The house is decorated with a nod towards this era, but extremely fast WiFi and Roku streaming television and movies bring modern convenience to your getaway. Utilities, kitchenware and linens are ready in this cottage for a perfect sanctuary for 1 or 2, but will sleep up to 4. The master suite has a queen sized memory foam bed, features skylights for stargazing from your pillows, (with a shade if you want to sleep in) a luxurious extra long, deep soaking tub, and a walk in closet. The downstairs bedroom has a full sized memory foam bed, and the great room has a queen sized sleeper sofa. The large kitchen, comfortable great room and stone patio make this cheerful, cozy home a terrific Northern Dutchess/Columbia County NY destination. Delightful and warm for long weekends and ski season.
Close to NYS Route 22, I-90 and the Taconic State Parkway as well as both the Metro North and Amtrak train lines.

- A quiet, cozy spot for nature lovers. Close to outdoor sports, Hudson Valley history, shopping, dining and the arts community, but far enough away for relaxation. The three season sun-porch in the front of the house has enough light for an artist's studio, as does the master bedroom. Plenty of room to fish, bird-watch or enjoy the gardens. Bring your bicycles or rent them nearby! Hiking trail heads for the Taconic State Park around the corner on the next road over. Music lovers will enjoy a scenic 40 minute drive to Tanglewood Music Center. ...moreless

Very close to Catamount Ski Area in Hillsdale, NY and around the corner from Berkshire activities. Located in the Hudson Valley, this is a great spot to visit the FDR presidential library, Val Kill, and the Martin Van Buren National Historic Site. The Thomas Cole National Historic Site is close by as is Olana, Omi Arts Center and the Edna St. Vincent Millay home and Arts Colony Steepletop.
Year Purchased: 1998
Why the Owner Chose Millerton, NY, USA:
It's on one of the prettiest roads in the Northeast. Private, and close to many Hudson Valley points of interest. Located in the tri-state corner of NY, MA & CT, so you can get a lot in during a short drive!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This house is renovated to modern standards, yet holds it's 1930's/40's character. The wood work is beautiful!
