Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bathrooms with Hudson River views

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Joan,

Thanks you for making your home our home for an extended weekend. You have no idea what an escape to a small river town means to four exhausted city girls. Being able to boat, hike, swim and cook is exactly what we'd dreamed of doing this Labor Day weekend. This is the type of artistic retreat we one day dream of owning. Thanks for your hospitality.

Beautiful, peaceful, wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay! We reserved the Riverhouse during a visit to see our son at West Point. Our blood pressures immediately decreased upon walking onto the spacious balcony that overlooks the river.

Our hosts were terrific, the kitchen was the best equipped in all of our VRBO travels, the beds were comfortable, WiFi was great, the living room (tv area) was inviting, everything was fantastic.

We will surely book again!

Relaxing with a view!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great home, great location and great place for us to relax at after a long week in the Big City. Homeowners have created a wonderful environment in the home (+ beach house bungalow) and the backdrop of the Hudson River is a spectacular view anytime of day. Conveniently located to explore the outdoors and the small towns throughout the valley.

Absolutely gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views, in the morning you can see the sunrise from the bedroom windows as well as from the deck. The hot tub is fantastic and we absolutely loved the fire place by the water! A perfect spot to relax and recharge. We didnt even go out much because the house itself was so beautiful. I wish I would have booked a couple more days. I am definitely planning to go back again :)

Cozy, incredible view, different spaces to enjoy. Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I stayed several nights to work on a project,but the house can easily sleep more. The view is spectacular and the hoouse takes full advanatge of the view. The homeowner is a visual artist and her artistry is present in every room. Great hot tub. Great boat house.

Five minutes away you can take a small ferry across the river to the Hudson River train line to Grand Central Station. River access with use of Canoe & kyack. The Village of Haverstraw is 5 minutes away and has many interesting Latin Restaurants and small bodegas. The Village of Nyack is 15 minutes away and is a charming, more artsy river town with many lovely shops and restaurants. Bear Mountain & Harriman State Park are within a half hour drive and offer magnificent hikes.
