A unique opportunity to sleep and relax on the majestic Hudson River only one hour from the great cultural center of New York City. Located on a quiet street that ends at an entrance to the Palisades State Park with a 5 mile bike/hiking trail along the Hudson. Five minutes away you can take a small ferry across the river to the Hudson River train line to Grand Central Station. Very unique location with spectacular river views. You can visit the museums and theater of NYC and come home to hike and relax and listen to the sound of the river. We have a stairway down to the Hudson and provide the use of a canoe & kayak and a fire pit on the shores of the Hudson. The house is a 5 minute drive from the Village of Haverstraw with an array of Latino food and small bodegas and 15 minutes from Nyack, with its charming shops and restaurants. Bear Mountain & Harriman State Park are within a half hour drive with a myriad of amazing hiking trails.

About Joan Harmon
My husband, Jim & I both grew up in the midwest- he by a lake & me on a farm but we are both artists and professors and work in Manhattan- this property made it possible for us to have it all.
Joan Harmon purchased this House in 2000
Why Joan Harmon chose Haverstraw
The proximity to the cultural center of NYC with a State Park trail along the Hudson and beachfront where we can swim and canoe & kayak- this is unique and very special. The addition of a ferry service to the Metro North makes country/city living a dream.
What makes this House unique
The majestic views of the Hudson and the sound of the water as you sleep at night and the chance to sit and walk by the river made me fall in love- its all about the magic of the riverand having a State Park trail along the river at the end of our block.

Peaceful and wonderful house on the water!
Joan was friendly and easy going. The house was cozy and perfect. The hot tub a huge treat!
We really enjoyed having Shayna & Ben stay at our home- such lovely guests make home sharing a true joy.
Great weekend getaway!
Beautiful views, and the house had everything you could need! Great, peaceful location on the river, loved the trailhead being so close by. The only downfall is that we couldnt use the indoor fireplaces, but otherwise terrific & would rent again! thank you!
Breathtaking view, lovely house!
We loved our stay at the River House - the house is very nicely decorated, comfortable and I enjoyed Joan's art very much. The landlady Joan is super helpful and gave us many tips. The view is absolutely wonderful and one can go for long walks in beautiful nature. We hope to be back!
We loved having you and look forward to your return!
Such a beautiful home in the perfect area!
The house was absolutely beautiful and surrounded by such incredible views. From the comfy beds and living space, to the completely perfect kitchen AND the grill and hot tub, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Thank you Joan for a wonderful vacation
Sarah and her family were perfect guests- its such a pleasure to have guests who enjoy our home as we do!
Location, Location, Location - Spectacular Views - Quiet Setting
My wife and I are in our mid-60's. We live in the middle of a forest in Northwest Wisconsin on a lake on 4 acres surrounded by thousands of acres of pine forest with no neighbors. We wanted to visit our daughter who lives in Brooklyn and works in Manhattan. We have visited the area before, and I had attended school at Yale in New Haven Conn, but had never ventured away from the East Coast Metro Area.
We were amazed an excited to find this gem only 45 miles from New York, overlooking the Hudson, and providing us with privacy and a quiet, peaceful setting.
Sitting in the hot tub and watching the ships and boats sail up and down the Hudson River was phenomenal!
The Appalachian Trail at Bear Mountain only a short beautiful drive away was another unexpected treat, as my family loves hiking and exploring nature away from the intensity of the city life.
If you are like us, and apprciate this kind of vacation then don't wait - book now as the leaves are changing and more beauty awaits for those that want this kind of experience.
The accomodations were quaint, clean, and cozy with all the amenities that anyone could want.
We hope to be back in the very near future to spend more quality time with our family.
Thank you Joan for a very memorable vacation.
Patrick, Kristy and Annissa Kreidler
Having guests like Patrick and his family make home sharing a true pleasure- we hope to see them again soon!
Great weekend place.
Great deck overlooking the Hudson. Nice hot tub, access to the river, with canoes. Fully stocked kitchen in regards to pots, pans, etc. would definitely stay here again!
