About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

Year-round country getaway privately situated on over 2 acres of woodland and open fields with a meandering stream and mature cottage garden. Perfect spot for the outdoor enthusiast, culture-seeker or those looking to get away from it all and just relax.

The great room with vaulted ceiling, wideboard pine floors and wood-burning stone fireplace has a wall of glass doors that opens to the deck with views of surrounding countryside -- this is the gathering area and the place to be if you are cooking, eating or just hanging out talking, listening to music or watching a movie. The kitchen contains everything you could possibly want for preparing gourmet meals and hardy country breakfasts. Basic spices, condiments and accoutrements provided. The dining table comfortably seats six. In the wintertime, a blazing fire is a must and we use it to toast marshmallows for smores and head out to cross-country ski on the property.

In summertime, the activity shifts outdoors to one of the two large decks, the lawn, garden and expansive woods.

Comfortably accommodates UP TO 6 people. The sun-filled master suite with queen-sized bed and country pine furniture, has its own attached full bath and glass sliding doors that open to a newly built large deck surrounded by lawn and gardens. A large second bedroom with two twin beds and a third bedroom with a twin trundle bed (twin bed expands to be a king or two separate twin beds) share a full hallway bath.

Privately situated within 30 minutes of most attractions in the Hudson Valley, the Catskills, and the Berkshires. Fifteen minutes from Rhinebeck Center. Fifteen minites from Bard College. Fifteen minutes from Lake Tagkanic State Park. 30 minutes to Poughkeepsie and Hudson.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I'm from NYC, but always loved going away to summer camp as a kid. What I've tried to re-create here is what I would call the experience of 'getting away'. An easy-care country house with lots of outdoor living space, gardens, wooded area and a babbling brook. And indoors a great room with fireplace and lots of seating for a group to relax.

Why the Owner Chose Red Hook, NY, USA:
I must have looked at over 40 properties and this house had the bones of my perfect "not so big house" and it was located in the country with plenty of privacy but close enough to town and basic amenities like great restaurants, groceries, movies/the arts.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
People tell me that it's cozy and that they love the private setting in the woods and the opportunity to walk around the babbling brook. And the proximity to every thing you could possibly want to visit.
