Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Cleaning Fee $75
  • Refundable Damage Deposit $1,000
  • Tax Rate 8%

Notes:

For just one night, there is an additional surcharge of $75 since it requires the same care to get my house ready, plus the $75 cleaning fee etc. No pets allowed under any condition; children depend on the ages; usually two nights during spring, season, fall and holidays but I can remain flexible but for only one night there will be a surcharge of between $50 and $100 depending on the weekend and season. I will lower the rate come winter, except for Xmas and New Year's...

Location

View Guide powered by:

Car: Recommended

Located in the great town of Rhinebeck, near train stations, FDR's home, the CIA, Omega, near Hunter Mountain for skiing, 1+ hour to the Berkshires and its museums and great plays, shops, and more; a great location with great activities in town including an independent bookstore, super movie theater, shops, restaurants, Pilates, yoga, library, outdoor public tennis and swimming pool, good bike riding, golf courses not far, and almost anything you can imagine!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Love to cook, paint, entertain, and work--still must do it but isn't that great! Love to garden too and have a perennial garden all around and vegetable planters!

Why the Owner Chose Rhinebeck Village Business District, Rhinebeck, NY, USA:
Because it's light, bright, roomy, air conditioned, new bathrooms, updated kitchen, right in the heart of the village, steps away to shopping, library, bookstore, Pilates, yoga, art classes and lots of great restaurants! Has four comfortable bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half, great big living room, dining room, family room, and modernized kitchen and outdoor spaces at front and back for sitting, vegetable garden, and close to Bard College, Vassar College, Omega, 1+ hour to the Berkshires and not far from the Catskills and skiing. Use my pots and pans and spices and cook here, watch TV, use my Wi-Fi, and relax. Close to my gym and Pilates classes, too. Have two bicycles to use.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The village is a gem, maybe the best place I've lived with culture, food, kind people and so much near by, including the Berkshires 1+ hours away. And even in the deadly winter, it's still a joy to put on a coat, hat, gloves and boots and stroll out to see how pretty the town looks.
