Property description

In the southern tip of the Hudson Valley’s Columbia County, nestled in the Taconic Mountains, is the tri-state corner of New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut. Boston Corners Brookside in NY is a restored 1932 Cape Cod on 2 acres bordered by a Class A trout stream. This fully furnished, weekend/short term house rental is your opportunity to enjoy the bucolic scenery and activities of the Hudson Valley’s natural beauty. Enjoy Copake, Millerton and Hillsdale NY’s farm stands and Saturday farmers market in the summer and fall, (including milk in glass bottles and ice cream made at the local dairy) dining, four season arts, sports and entertainment venues. Catamount ski area, Brace Mountain trail head and the Taconic Rail Trail are close by, as are golf, horseback riding and a paragliding club! Organized bicycle rides tour the farm and mountain roads our area offers.

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.

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.

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.
