This very special setting is perfect for those who love nature. Photographers, birdwatchers, artists and authors have used this peaceful location from which to work and study. Pond Lily is perfect for corporate groups or organizations to use as a working retreat. We now offer weddings and other special events in the barn and on the property grounds. Friends and families can gather for vacations, reunions, and celebrations of all kinds. A simple getaway weekend to recharge is one of the best uses of the house and property. Day trips abound! Saratoga for horse racing, Hudson for antiquing, Rhinebeck for shopping or the farmers market, Hyde Park to visit the FDR Library and the historic Vanderbilt Mansion & Estate. For snow/ski lovers, Catamount and Jiminy Peak are close. Catamount also offers an exciting zip-line course during the warmer seasons. If you don't want to take advantage of the full kitchen or barbecue grill, there are many Zagat-rated restaurants a short drive away.

Beautiful private NY estate located at The Farm at Pond Lily in Hudson Valley
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Gorgeous property; spacious, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this house for the weekend to celebrate a friend's birthday. We were 10 in total, and found the house to be charming, spacious and extremely comfortable.

The grounds were breathtaking and impeccably maintained. There are two lakes, a gorgeous barn, paddle boats and a lovely seating area by the dock.

The property abuts a park/forest with a large lake that provides great opportunities for hiking, boating and other outdoor activities.

The hosts were helpful throughout the weekend; making sure we had everything we needed and even delivered freshly baked bread on Sunday morning.

This place is amazing - I couldn't recommend it more highly for a wonderful, relaxing weekend away.
