Overview

About the property

5 BR, 2.5 bath, AC, Wifi, cable, Gas grill

Sharing a border with HITS, this is the best place to stay if you are attending one of the shows. This 5 bedroom 2.5 bath home is the perfect location to walk, bike, or ride a golf cart to the shows. High speed wifi and AC throughout the home provide ultimate comfort to relax after a long day.

Read some of our recent reviews from people at the horse show:

This house is perfect and super cozy to come home to after a long day of horse showing at HITS! The house was well maintained and our best rental so far! It offered so much space, and easily accommodated our large group - plus who could beat such a gorgeous view! This house was so convenient for us as it is situated right next door to HITS Saugerties and just minutes away from town - we can't wait to stay again! Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

The house was exactly what we needed for our week at HITS. It was within walking (or golf cart) distance to HITS and had all of the amenities we could want. If you are there for HITS the reality is that you may not be in the house for a lot of waking hours but it is a great place to be for that time.

Stayed at this house for the M & S Finals at Hits. Boy was it convenient! We literally walked over to the show every day! The house is new with new appliances and amenities. Great layout and plenty of room. Everything was clean and comfortable. Jenn is super easy to work with and responds quickly. Highly recommend!

We stayed here with our family while attending the HITS horse show. The house is lovely with a variety of bedrooms and beds. It is a newer house and kept very clean and neat. The owner is great to work with and accommodating. The house is within walking distance to the show grounds which is very helpful. We will be staying here again.

The main floor has an open concept living area with a full kitchen, island with four bar stools, large dining table, and living room with large screen TV and DVD player.

The bedroom setup is as follows:

Bedroom 1: King (television) - upstairs

Bedroom 2: Queen and single (television) - upstairs

Bedroom 3: 2 singles - upstairs

Bedroom 4: bunk bed - upstairs

Bedroom 5: trundle bed (2 singles)- main floor

The bathroom setup is as follows:

Bathroom 1: Jack and Jill between bedrooms 1 and 2.

Bathroom 2: Upstairs, close to bedrooms 3 and 4

Bathroom 3: main floor, half bath

Check out our other HITS rentals at #579240 (4 BR, Pool) and #1141222 (2 BR walkout basement apartment).

Just 1 mile away from the village of Saugerties - Price Chopper, excellent restaurants, and the thruway exit are all less than 5 minutes away.

Centrally located between the Lazy Swan, Diamond Mills, Oz Farms, and the Saugerties Steamboat Company, if you are attending an event with family or friends this is the place to stay.

More great places in the local area:

The Hudson River is just .5 miles from the house. Kayak and stand up paddleboard rentals as well as larger boat rentals are available at two locations 1-2 miles from the house.

The village of Saugerties, just a mile away, has delicious restaurants, amazing boutiques, treasured antique stores, a movie theater, an eclectic book store, and more. Named one of the coolest small towns in the United States by budget travel, this is a town you don't want to miss.

Lazy Swan Golf and Country Club - Known as "Hamptons in the Hudson Valley"

Opus 40 - This is one of the most amazing earthwork sculptures in the world. It is an international destination right in our own backyard.

Puttin Plus - This kid fun center includes minigolf, go-karts, batting cages, arcade, laser tag, and more fun, just .5 miles from the house.

Kiwanis Ice Arena - figure skating, public skate, and hockey, just .5 miles from the house.

Saugerties Light House – just 1 mile away, take the short scenic trail to the Saugerties lighthouse. Bring a picnic lunch or a book to read, and relax on the large deck overlooking the Hudson River.

Cantine Memorial Complex - Softball fields, basketball courts, three playgrounds, soccer fields, and more. A great location for family fun.

Diamond Mills - This restaurant overlooks beautiful waterfalls and is a popular wedding venue.

New York Zipline Canopy Tours – come enjoy the biggest, fastest, longest ziplines in North America. There is also a smaller section for those who do not want to zipline from one mountaintop to another.

Bailiwick Animal Park, Horseback Riding, and Paintball - This is a small zoo where the kids can buy feed or carrots to give to most of the animals. It is very interactive, and my young children have more fun here than a big zoo because they can get up close to many of the animals. The zoo has some of the bigger, more exotic animals as well - tigers, bears, gorillas, etc. (You do not feed these animals). After going to the zoo, there is horseback riding for older kids and pony rides for the little ones.

The village of Woodstock is just 15 minutes away. Enjoy the eclectic shops, restaurants, and architecture. If you are in the area, this is a must see.

Catskill Animal Sanctuary – Visit a place where every animal has a name and a story. This is a place where animals are treated humanely, and you can be a part of their care.

Zoom Flume Water Park - This is a great waterpark for all ages, just 30 minutes from the house. Three kids play areas, a wave pool, and 10 types of slides, this is a must stop location in the summer. There is fun music playing which makes it a great atmosphere throughout the day. There is also a zipline across the park.

We have lived in Saugerties for our entire lives, so we can answer any questions about the local area including the best restaurants, shopping areas, and activities. We have been doing short term rentals for the past 10 years, so we hope you will benefit from our experience in this area.

About Jennifer Sauer

We, Clifford and Jennifer Sauer, are both teachers in the local area. We became involved in short term rentals when we bought our first home next to the HITS horse shows at the young age of 24. We decided to rent part of the home during the summer to equestrian riders, and we are still doing so today. This home is our second rental which we built in the spring of 2016. We used our experience with the first rental to create a great place for people attending the horse shows or exploring the local area.

Jennifer Sauer purchased this house in 2016

Why Jennifer Sauer chose Saugerties

This property is a comfortable, affordable option for groups of up to 11 people. We love the Saugerties area, and we are looking forward to making this a great place for you to learn more about what makes it so memorable.

Beautiful house and Jenn was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and new. We had twelve people in our group and half of them are kids.

Kids were able to play and stay downstairs and adults had their own space upstairs.

Everyone enjoyed the stay and will be back. Jenn was very hospitable and easy to talk to.

Exactly what was needed

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we needed for our week at HITS. It was within walking (or golf cart) distance to HITS and had all of the amenities we could want. If you are there for HITS the reality is that you may not be in the house for a lot of waking hours but it is a great place to be for that time. For the adults, it is set up nicely if you don't want to hang around the stables all day like the kids do. And even though HITS is off the beaten path a bit the house is no more than 10-15 minutes from any store or restaurant you may need.

Jennifer was great to work with both before and during the week and was available for any questions we may have had.

Lovely house for lots of people

  • 5 of 5

Really loved our stay at this large house. Plenty of room for family and friends who were all in the Catskills for my son's wedding. And she bent over backwards to accommodate a few special requests we had. There were a few stink bugs flying around, which is unavoidable at this time of year, and the AC filters could use a good cleaning, but it didn't detract from this being a perfect sanctuary in an otherwise very hectic weekend. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We were so glad that the house was a convenient place for your group to stay and enjoy a post wedding brunch for extended family and friends. It was an unusually warm September, so a few of the bugs did make it in through the air conditioners that are typically out of the windows by this time of year. Thank you for the kind review.
