About Janelle Bosek

We had a dream to own a house in the Hudson Valley in order to find a calm retreat to counter balance our hectic city lives in NYC. And we found more than balance in our Hurley Farm House, we found joy and abounding mother nature.

Janelle Bosek purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Why Janelle Bosek chose Hurley

We call this property "Hurley Heaven", as we've found so much joy here. Not only in the gorgeous scenery in the area but also in seeing our hard work transform this little piece of natural heaven into a nurturing getaway that we never want to leave. We feel it was serendipitous to find this place, as we came across after a marvelous hike in the Shawangunk Mountains ("The Gunks"). Once we saw the huge willow in the backyard, casting a magical shade on the ground where we stood, we knew this was the place for us. In the years since we purchased the property we have put love, work and our hard-earned money into making this place as comfortable as possible. We think we got there and hope you'll agree. Now, when we aren't using the house ourselves, we are sharing this little piece of heaven with our guests.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house is extremely comfortable, and we've chosen everything personally, from the floor tile to the pillow-top beds, from the marble and granite counter tops to the plush chesterfield leather sofa, and even the wallpaper and local wall decor was thoughtfully gathered from local shops and antique stores. We love it when our guests enjoy the personal touches. And still there's the marvelous backyard where we've augmented mother nature's beauty with 2 patios and a former workshop turned party room. But nothing compares to our willow, keeping watch over the house and the guests and bringing her magical presence to our property and all who stay here.

Perfect restful get away!!

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in Hurley (many decades ago) and it was so nice to find this wonderful house right in the heart of town. My husband and I were looking for a place to unwind and relax after a chaotic wedding week in NYC. This house fits the bill perfectly. Very comfy rooms and large kitchen with everything you could need. The place has been all updated and is located on a quiet street on two acres. The little town of Hurley has tons of history with lots of old stone houses on the main street. It is only 15 minutes from Kingston and Woodstock, although most of the time we just walked to the Hurley Mountain Inn for good bar food. The owner, Janelle, is only a text away with any questions you may have.

We would definitely come back here again on our next visit to the Hudson Valley.

Super family get together place

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful remodeled home with two bedrooms and a large gathering dining room. The kitchen is great and I was able to feed 5 people with ease. Spaces were clean and fun. We all played a game on our cellphones and TV because the young men in the family are quite techy. The property is huge with an outside fire pit on a nice stone deck with chairs and a high fence protecting from the wind and neighbors. We had a lovely stay. Beautiful old Willow tree enhances the yard. There is something interesting to look at everywhere.

The area is full opportunities for outdoor activities for all seasons. We are 15 minutes from the Mohonk Moutain Preserve and Minnewaska State Park, part of the Shawangunk Mountains, with the best rock climbing in the Northeast. The Catskills are directly adjacent to the house and offer rafting, hiking, skiing/snowboarding, rafting, fishing opportunities and much more! It's also a great area for antiquing in the Spring and Summer especially, with many local shops and roadside estate sales to stop in and go home with a unique find. And of course there's the opportunity to just stay at the house and cook / BBQ, swim in the Esopus creek (right out the back door) and sit by the camp fire.
