Close to the scenic and popular towns of Rhinebeck, Millbrook and Hudson, NY, "Cow Cabin" is a glorious romantic retreat in any season, idyllically set on a hill overlooking 6 cows (Jun-Nov) grazing in shimmering fields by scenic pond and distant blue mountains. Perfect romantic hideaway for pastoral weekends - especially for nature lovers, couples and small families!
Guests enjoy breath-taking views from 3 light-drenched rooms (~ 20' x 50') on the upper floor of the cabin (lower floor is private storage). Our loft-like living area features a new wood-burning stove, original wooden beams across a cathedral ceiling, plush sofas and ottomans, a thick new rug and dining room table.
Indulge in total peace and tranquility in a cottage with easy access to Hudson Valley highlights, including historic towns, farmers' markets, fairs, restaurants and activities (cross-country skiing, hiking, biking, kayaking, sight seeing, etc).
Our cabin is just 20 minutes drive from historic Hudson Valley towns of Poughkeepsie (Walk Across the Hudson Bridge, Bardavon Opera House, Vassar and Marist Colleges, Culinary Institute of America); Hyde Park (FDR Library and Mansion, Vanderbilt Mansion); Staatsburg (Mills Mansion); Rhinebeck (Upstate Film Theatre for best indies, Omega Institute in summer, Dutchess County Fair in August, Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome, Farmers' Market Sunday mornings, Antiques Fairs); Bard College's Richard Fisher Center in Annandale on Hudson for world-reknowned music and theatre ; Millbrook for Innisfree Gardens, Farmers' Market and much more. Towns are charming and offer great shopping and restaurants.
