Stunning Hudson River views from this beautiful 5 bedroom home and guesthouse with pool in Garrison, NY. Situated on 13 secluded acres with abundant outdoor and entertaining spaces. Only 1 hour from Manhattan and minutes from the Metro North railroad stop.
Perfect getaway for family gatherings, weddings and events. Convenient to popular Hudson River towns Cold Spring and Beacon with great shopping, boating, hiking, antiques, excellent restaurants, and farmers markets.
I stayed at this gem of a home with a group of 10, spanning three generations and four families. It is beautifully decorated, situated in an idyllic setting, and close to a wide array of landmarks, parks and amenities. We spent most of our time in the kitchen, which has everything needed to cook for and serve large groups. The living room has ample space to read, watch TV, or just talk. We never used the basement, but there's additional group-space there, too. The bedrooms adequately covered our needs, that included four couples and two teenagers. We also used an air mattress for our teenage son. The owners are extremely responsive via the HomeAway app. We had a minor issue with the microwave and they guided us to a simple fix within minutes. The house is within minutes from multiple state parks (e.g. Bear Mountain), the U.S. Military Academy, and shopping in Cold Spring. Finally, it offers ample hill training for runners! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend it to anyone looking for a home that will provide respite to a group of almost any size while visiting the southern end of the Hudson River Valley.
Ted and Sazelle were the perfect hosts. Their property is incredibly convenient from NYC and absolutely amazing. Situated quietly off in the woods, the house is remote enough for privacy yet accessible. We were fortunate to have chosen their place for friends weekend because it rained nearly the entire time but their house was large, open, and conducive of group interaction. The house was clean, Ted was a very prompt and thorough communicator, and their kitchen was well-stocked with anything you could need for prepping & cooking. Our overall experience greatly exceeded our (already high) expectations and I can't recommend their place enough. We will certainly be back.
We enjoyed a weeklong stay at this beautiful home for our sons Acceptance Day at USMA. The owners were very responsive, generous and accommodating. They even worked with us to stay an extra night. The house is lovely and very roomy - lots of spaces to enjoy. The pool is beautiful and refreshing. The guest house is roomy and very comfortable. I highly recommend!
We absolutely loved the property. House was beautiful and spacious. We had adult kids and their boyfriends (and, to our surprise) their friends and grandma, and our two dogs and the house and extensive grounds were perfect. Badminton and frisbees on the lawn, swimming and sunning in the pool (we didn't even know it was heated--a pleasant surprise), grilling on the upper patio, swinging near the pond, pool and ping pong in the game room.
5 min drive to the train station was wonderful with so many surprise guests and Cold Spring had everything we needed--In hindsight, I wish I'd brought more food/wine from home--Prices are high in that tiny town.
Owner was very responsive, despite my dumb questions. Everything very clean, instructions avail for everything.
Visited West Point and was impressed as always by the cadets, and the setting.
Biggest regret--not spending enough time on the upper balcony watching the fun and the river.
Downsides--none we can think of. We normally never return to a place for a second vacation, but in this case I don't know how we could improve.
Biggest headache--my wife wants to move to the Hudson Valley.
I rented this house for a week to celebrate my small, 30-person wedding. It couldn't have been more perfect. The property is absolutely breathtaking! The pool was definitely my favorite part:), but the entire house is the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. There is plenty of room for at least five different activities going on at once. I was amazed at how many small things the house had that I was able to use for my wedding. It was stocked with everything! Coolers, serving trays, games galore, and the archway for the ceremony! The best thing about waking up in the Master Suite was opening my eyes to an awakening view of the Hudson River. It took me seconds to pop out of bed for that view! The kitchen has everything you need to cook a gourmet meal, plus access to the pantry, which I thought was super thoughtful. The deck off the kitchen is so peaceful, and I saw lots of hummingbirds! I searched through a lot of houses on VRBO, and the reason I picked this one was because it's large enough to accommodate a small/medium sized event, but also seems lived in and loved. The rooms, although large, still maintain a cozy feeling. I wasn't afraid to touch anything, and was able to relax completely. It was great! The owners were not around(gave us our privacy), but available if I needed anything. The apartment above the garage was perfect for my husband's siblings. They said they felt like they were the ones on vacation. I can't say enough good things about this property! Hopefully, I'll be able to rent it again someday for an anniversary or two! :)
Our family enjoyed every moment of our one week stay at this beautiful home. The main house along with the garage apartment offered wonderful space and accommodations for our family and friends celebrating USMA Class of 2016 graduation activities. The owners were incredibly gracious with their home and responsive to any inquiries that we had in terms of catering and other needs for the graduation celebrations. I would highly recommend this home for any vacation or gathering, small or large. From the beautiful, large yard to the wonderful home we could not have asked for a better experience. If our travels ever take us back to the Hudson Valley area, we will surely seek the opportunity to enjoy this home and overall property again.
Garrison is 20 minutes away from West Point, 5 minutes from the nearest train station. Easy drive 1 hour up the Taconic or Pallisades from NYC. Near beautiful town of Cold Spring, Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, lots of activities and great restaurants
