Property description

The Barn in Tivoli is a super cozy & unique home for your country pleasure.

It's an easy 5-minute walk to the charming Hudson Valley hamlet of Tivoli where you can start the day with fresh baked brioches, have brunch at Murray's and get an Ayurvedic treatment in the afternoon. In the evening, after a nutritious farm-to-table dinner, catch a theater performance at Tangent, dance at Kaatsbaan or opera at The Fisher Center for the Performing Arts (a stunning Frank Gehry building). End the night at Traghaven, the whiskey pub, and if you are lucky, it'll be Karaoke Night!

If staying in is what you need, the Barn is a relaxing retreat with wood burning stove, old piano, a soaking tub, a curious library, back deck, grill, fire pit and a rustic kitchen equipped for your cooking pleasure. Take a walk to the stream or have a picnic by the pond.

For the adventurous guests, Tivoli Bays is a great setting for kayaking, paddle boarding, bike riding or just a hike on your own two feet. Our area also features beautiful roads for bike riding.


PLEASE NOTE:

-Inquire about bringing your babies and kids before you book. No pets.
-The Barn is to be enjoyed by the number of booked guests. No visitors.
-It is heated by a wood burning stove. We provide all the wood & it will be warm if you are arriving anytime in Oct-April

BARN DESCRIPTION

Unique, 4-season rustic barn, with open, loft-like floor plan. Lovingly renovated with the work of numerous local artisans, surrounded by gardens and green, a 4-acre oasis with pond, stream, small yoga deck, 3 fire pits and picnic table by the pond. The Barn is a fun, charming, rustic shelter and provides a totally unique experience for friends and family. It's a communal space that brings people closer together. 'It was like a big sleepover' says one of our illustrious guests.

In the cold months, it heats with a highly efficient wood burning stove. We provide all the wood. The Barn will be fully heated once you arrive!

In the Summer the Barn cools down with 2 window ACs and you cool down at the spacious, private outdoor shower while gazing at the trees and sky.


SLEEPING LAYOUT

The Barn sleeps 6 guests in 5 beds; 1 king, 2 queens and 2 twins. The 5 beds are distributed in 3 different levels; ground, second floor and loft.

**IMPORTANT** The Barn is a loft and bedrooms are not separated by doors. They do have privacy curtains and their own cozy nooks.


GROUND FLOOR // Nook by the piano: thick queen futon mattress on wooden frame. This bed can be used as a day bed or as a bedroom.

SECOND FLOOR //

King Nook // Brand new plush king coil mattress on wooden bed frame. Organic sheets.

Twin Trundle Nook // Metal trundle bed with coil mattresses. Great for kids or couples as one of the beds can either be left low or raised to match the regular height. Organic sheets.

LOFT // Two queen futon mattresses stacked on the floor for extra comfort. Organic sheets. View of the creek.


KITCHEN
Rustic kitchen nicely equipped for your cooking pleasure. Plates, cups, mugs, utensils & pans included. Sub-Zero fridge with freezer, convection oven, cooktop, large sink. No dishwasher.

We also have a large grill on the deck. Guests have also used the fire pit to cook corn, bake potatoes, roast meats and marshmallows.

UPSTAIRS FULL BATHROOM
Rustic bathroom with claw foot tub & organic toiletries. Bath towels provided. Bring your creek/outdoor towels.

DOWNSTAIRS FULL BATHROOM
Beautiful tiled shower with rubbed oil bronze fixtures, a rain shower head & organic toiletries.

DRESSING ROOM
I created this room thinking of guests who come to the Barn to attend weddings in the area. Includes a vintage dresser, hangers and mirror enclosed by linen curtains.

LIBRARY
All sorts of books - I am sure you will find something curious. Enjoy it on the hammock in the summer or by the wood burning stove in the Winter.

BACK DECK
Brand new, fun & colorful seating and dinning for cookouts from spring to fall. Large gas grill and fire pit are your outdoor cooking options.

OUTDOOR SHOWER
Open May to October
Wonderful, spacious, private shower on the deck! In the summer you might find yourself taking multiple showers throughout the day.

FIRE PIT
The fire pit located in the Barn's backyard is for your exclusive use.

PROPERTY
*shared with house*
The property features over four acres of forest bordered by Stony Creek. In the center, there's an open meadow with a pond. We placed a beautiful, custom, cedar picnic table there, right next to a second fire pit. It's a wonderful place to watch nature and enjoy beautiful days.

If you walk along the creek you will get to two different spots where you can access the water. One spot has a pebble beach with a semi deep spot where you can dip in. The other entrance features a third fire pit. We have placed a small wooden platform by the creek, ideal for meditating, practicing yoga or just watching and listening to the water.

Our house neighbors the Barn. Occasionally, when we travel, we rent it out to 1 or 2 couples. Both structures are private and sit around 75 feet away from each other and 100 feet away from Broadway.

THE VILLAGE

Tivoli is one of the hidden gems of the Hudson Valley and an easy 5 minute walk from the Barn.

It serves a big portion of the Bard University population - students & professors are often seen walking around the village at the coffee shop and bakery. Tivoli is also home many young families who moved up from NYC + BK and old residents including world famous artists.

Tivoli is a tiny village, friendly & quaint. It's centrally located between Rhinebeck and Hudson with Germantown and Red Hook along the way. It's an awesome spot to explore the Mid-Hudson Valley - from farms to old mansions, from antiquing to watching cabaret at the Spiegeltent or high-end performances at The Fischer Center for the Performing Arts. Visit the beautiful Olana sitting atop a hill with majestic views of the Hudson, catch experimental music and art at the Basilica and shows at Helsinki. Not to mention all the superb dining options in Tivoli and all the way from Rhinebeck to Hudson.

GETTING AROUND

The closest public transportation is the Amtrak to the the quaint Rhinecliff train station. It's a convenient, beautiful and quick ride (1:30 to 1:45) up the Hudson River. Tivoli has a local cab service which will bring you to the Barn for around $25.

In the Summer, Captain Jerome will sail you from the Rhinecliff station to the dock in Tivoli. Yeah, it's amazing and special!

The closest supermarket and farm stands are about a 10 minute car ride or closer. If you do not want to bring your car you can always catch a ride with the Tivoli Car Service.

You will receive detailed info about the area upon booking.

Location

Car: Recommended

The Barn is located between the lovely Rhinebeck shops & restaurants and Hudson's antique stores and surrounded by wineries and farms where you can pick your own fresh strawberries, your vegetables or buy them off the many farm stands close to us and choose your bottle of wine.

Germantown & Red Hook are 10 minutes away and we are also 30 minutes away from Omega Institute.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My husband, our 6 year old and I live across the driveway. It is our pleasure to share the Barn & land with our guests! I am a photo and video editor who came to NYC from Brazil in 1998. My husband is a designer & builder of all things sustainable at Ecosystems Brand. Fourteen years and a child later we felt the urge to return to the best things of our childhood; space, trees, clean air, birds & bees and farm fresh wonderfulness! So we moved up to the magical Huddon Valley.

Why the Owner Chose Tivoli, NY, USA:
At the very beginning of our relationship, my husband and I, rented the Barn together with four other close friends. We fell in love with the place as we fell for each other. He then came to spend a winter at the Barn going through his old sketchbooks and looking into the future. We got married and had a child. Brooklyn was lacking what we were dreaming of and with perfect timing we received an email about the property's sale. We looked at each other and agreed, let's buy it, and we did in April 2012.

The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
Rustic charm, comfort, warmth and relaxation. The Barn is located in the heart of Dutchess County with Rhinebeck 18 min south and Hudson 18 min north. Bard is a 5 minute drive, the Village of Tivoli is a 5 minute walk. Omega Institute is 30 minutes away. The Hudson River with views of the Catskills is a 10 min bike ride. The creek with the private swimming hole and yoga deck make our spot truly magnificent! Read a book by the pond under the shade of the catalpa tree, watch and hear the birds and take in the summer sun energy. Life is good at the Barn.
