There is plenty of space, allowing you to relax in style with your friends and family for the holidays or a getaway. Events and weddings are allowed with prior approval (contact the host for wedding packages and event pricing). Our home is perfect for events of all types and we welcome all people. #LGBTQ-Friendly. Private Chef available upon request.

ABOUT THE HOME

Inside our farmhouse mansion, you will enjoy old and new. The home features an intimate living room with original hand carved moldings and wide-board floors, a formal dining room with plenty of seating as well as a large entertainment room perfect for a wedding/party with an attached sunroom, and wrap-around decks. Our living room also has a BABY GRAND PIANO, which is almost as old as the house itself. Feel free to relax, and play some music.

Inside our home, you will also find three FIREPLACES including a Vermont Soap Stone WOOD BURNING STOVE and an additional PELLET STOVE in winter for ambiance and extra warmth. These are great places to sit with friends and get cozy with a bottle of wine or cup of tea.

You and your guests will enjoy serenity, peace, and privacy. Our farmhouse has FOUR BALCONIES and two covered DECKS. These are great for enjoying your early morning coffee while watching the sunrise or for an evening cup of tea while watching the sunsets. Our two covered decks still afford you to do this even in the winter time. This is one of our favorite parts of the house.

For those who like to COOK, our home is the perfect place for you to dine with all of our friends. Our home is FULLY STOCKED with cookware, utensils, linens, towels, our personal spices & condiments for your use, though you are certainly welcome to bring you own. Do you love to have BBQ's? We also have two propane GRILLS. You will enjoy BBQing at the pool, it is one of our favorite things to do in the summer. If you like to BBQ in the winter, do not fear! Our grills are portable and you can move them closer to the house.

BEDROOMS:

Our 3-story home can SLEEP up to 23 adults plus a few airbeds to accommodate extra guests.

There are seven very comfortable bedrooms with plush beds and unique sleep enhancing toppers and five full bathrooms. Our first-floor bedroom, which has a WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE bathroom, is perfect for older relatives who may not be able to climb one of our four staircases leading to the bedrooms on the second and third floors. Guests love our third-floor bedrooms. Intimate and open, the bedrooms are perfect for large get-togethers, reunions, weddings and families who treasure the rare occasions to all be together.

THE GROUNDS

Our POOL is located in the back of the house next to the pool house and is very private. Here, you will also find our YEAR ROUND HOT TUB. Next to the pool area, we have a small ORCHARD of apple, pear, cherry, and walnut trees. When in season, we invite you to feast on whatever your hearts desire. Simply walk over to the apple orchard and help yourself. At the far rear of the backyard, is our FIRE PIT. The seating was built with repurposed wood from our barn (yes, this wood is from the 1800's).

The front of the house also has a lot to offer. You will enjoy walking down the steps of the front of the house to sit at our STONE FOUNTAIN. The blue stone steps are a theme throughout the property. Who knows where they will take you.

PERKS FOR PARENTS:

Our home is perfect for a large family, family reunions, or a trip with the grandparents. Our family room opens up into a small patio area, which is also connected to the front entrance, in case anyone has a hard time with steps! The kitchen, dining room, living room and our two covered decks are also wheel-chair accessible so no one has to feel left out.

For those who love to cook, our open kitchen has space for everyone to help. Feel free to use whatever we have and make our home, yours! The kitchen is stocked with every appliance that you could ever wish for. Attached to our dining room, we can comfortably seat 16 guests so the whole family can eat in one place. However, if you would you prefer to have the kids eat elsewhere, our front deck has seating for four. The dining room is connected to this area so everyone can still see each other.

Another great feature is that our house is so large, but there is plenty of privacy for parents. Our dormitory style bedroom is the perfect room for siblings and cousins or friends. We have six other more private bedrooms for parents who would like some space from the children. Our entertainment room can be set up for arts and crafts or games, just let us know and we would be happy to accommodate you and your family no matter what your needs are.

WHY KIDS LOVE IT:

Our large property has several spaces for playing soccer, volleyball or just running around. As all of our kids are grown, one of our favorite past-times is playing flashlight tag. There are so many trees to play hide and go seek! In addition, inside the house we have plenty of toys and books for kids of all ages.

During the summer time, the kids will love splashing in the pool. Feel free to use any of our pool floats or toys or if you are feeling adventurous, have a water gun or water balloon fight!

There are also plenty of kid-friendly attractions in the surrounding area. Make sure to ask us what’s in the nearby areas.

Although children of all ages are welcome, parents should know that we are not infant proof. Therefore, care should be taken with children of such a young age. However, if there is anything we can do to make your stay more memorable, please do not hesitate to ask us.

PERKS FOR RETREATS:

We love hosting corporate other retreats. Our entertainment room can be set up to tailor your needs so please let us know what you need. The home has HI-SPEED INTERNET HUBS that extend to the grounds. The TV in the living room can be set up to accommodate presentations. Several areas in the home are great for breakout sessions. Please let us know if you are interested in personal chefs or catering services. We would be happy to provide you with recommendations.

Why Abbe chose Hudson Valley

Our unique house has much to offer. In the summer, you will love taking advantage of our grounds, which include 5.5 acres, a pool, hot tub and 2 grills. There is plenty of space to play in the yard, whether you want to set up volleyball or eat outside. Explore Harriman State Park- enjoy leaf peeping (we feel our area is the most beautiful and scenic for watching the fall colors).

Great Old Farn House - Character and Space

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 7 friends stayed for the weekend. We found the house and the service to be exceptional. The house has numerous bedrooms and can easily sleep more than 20. We met in the dining room and it was great for a meeting space. The house has so much space it could be used for virtually any circumstance. The pool and hot tub were great additions and we got to watch lots of wildlife - including deer around the yard. Highly recommended, we will be back

Owner's Response: Hi Tim, You were a pleasure to host and we are glad that you had a great time and want to come back. We do have lots of wildlife,,,... and because we have the small orchard of apple, pear and cherry trees, the deer love to come to our property. As you probably experienced, they were very friendly and did not run away when they saw you. Don't know if you were able to pick any of the apples and pears while you were at our home but if so, people love the fruit and one can make the best apple pie or apple sauce. Thank you for leaving our home immaculate. Looking forward to hosting you again.

amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

got everything we expected, plus. Jeff Abie and Shanna are and were truly great hosts with attention to detail. Always tying to accommodate our every need, anything we asked for was taken care of right away. By the end of our stay we felt like family with Jeff & Abie, would definitely come back again, very nice location near Harriman State Park plenty to do for all ages. The house was extremely neat and clean and well taken care of making it a pleasure for all. Thank you very much Jeff Abie and Shanna hope to see you guys again soon.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days here for an executive retreat and had a great experience. The house was beautiful and had the perfect amenities (big meeting room, large indoor dining table, outdoor seating, pool, fire pit, etc.). The owners were great hosts - very helpful & communicative. We'd definitely stay here again!

Nice big house with a beautiful lawn

The house is great for a large group and the outside grounds and pool are really nice for a party. I hosted a 40th birthday party weekend here and we had a great time.

Absolutely perfect!! 5 Stars!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our Mother's 75th Birthday celebration! There was plenty of room for the 16 adults that stayed here for 5 days/4nights. We especially loved the extra large table in the dining room that we all fit comfortably around for meals and to play games and also the very large family room. The owners could not have been nicer and made sure that we had everything we needed to make our time there perfect! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone and would love to stay there again sometime!

Great house for a big group of friends/family

  • 5 of 5

This house was better than advertised and Abbe, Shana and Jade were amazing hosts. Only an hour ride from NYC, the trip out was very easy. Our group of almost twenty adults slept very comfortably in the large house. All the separate bedrooms provided amble privacy and the shared 3rd floor room was like being back at camp! The property is beautiful with so many different areas to explore (decks, firepits, activity room). The pool, hot tub and pool house were the perfect retreat on our hot summer days. House is very well stocked with everything you could need in the kitchen, towels, blankets, pillows, etc.

Abbe and team made staying here a breeze. From the first minute that I sent an inquiry to Abbe, she was immediately responsive. This responsiveness continued throughout the entire trip (through email and text) and the team helped us arrange transportation and even got us discounts at local stores. Jade was there for a thorough walk-through at the start and a smooth check-out at the end of our trip.

I couldn't recommend this house more highly and will definitely be back for another occassion.
