Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Hyde Park - Hyde Park Home

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Full Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)

Home away from home, so many amenities and activities to enjoy year round. You will be sure to enjoy your weekend, or week vacation to the fullest. We are located across from the Vanderbilt Mansion, down the road from the world famous Culinary Institute, minutes from the FDR Presidential Library, and a five minute drive from the charming town of Rhinebeck, NY full of shops and great restaurants. Hyde Park is known for its antique shops and hiking trails, so take full advantage of both.

Home has three bedrooms (queen, full and two twins), as well as two sectional couches that could make for more sleeping arrangements. Two full bathrooms, and a full working kitchen make it an easy transition from your home to ours.

Check out our Bed and Breakfast in Saratoga Springs, New York for another great getaway option! www.TheInnAtFivePoints.com!

Why The Owner chose Hudson Valley

We loved this area for its historic activities, outdoor adventure activities, and the central location to some great towns in the Hudson Valley.

Very cozy home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with another couple were stayed in this house for the Labor Day weekend (last minute booking). Eilis was a pleasure to deal with! The description of the house was very accurate and the instructions provided were very detailed. This home is somewhat small but beautifully and lovingly decorated, and very clean (which is very important to me). We didn't plan to cook or grill but if we were, the kitchen was stocked with all the basics. There was also coffee/tea machine with variety of k-pods left for us.

We loved the area - very close to Rhinebeck (one of our favorite places), close to all sorts of shopping, many restaurants to eat in or order. It was a nice weekend in a very nice and comfortable home.

Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I checked in with three other people for what had to be one of the hottest weekends of the summer. If you turn the air conditioner on the main floor on, shut the basement door, leave the main floor bedroom doors open and sleep with them open it's totally comfortable. The people who slept in the master upstairs said the air-conditioner was sufficient if the door was kept closed upstairs. It truly was super hot out but we were fine in the house. It was a major concern of mine and it all worked out!

We booked the house as accommodation for going to an Omega workshop. It was amazing accommodation with only a 15 to 20 minute drive to Omega. Fully equipped and good water pressure in the showers.

Great decor and lovely linens.

Would highly recommend and I would stay there again for sure!

Note: access to the house was through a remote garage door opener. This becomes problematic if you are not always traveling with your group.

Also if unloading groceries and luggage, pull up to the side of the house and bring it in through the front door. Then go park the car on the lower-level garage area. Saves a lot of hassle.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we pulled up to the home, we were happy! A quiet location, beautiful decorating, and the perfect amount of space to enjoy our 2 night stay. Perfectly situated-close to all of the historic sites Hyde Park/Rhinebeck offers. Ellis (the owner) could not have been more helpful-from giving tips on favorite dining spots, to sending coupons for the fair we attended. We will absolutely be back.

Beautifully decorated! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully decorated home, lots of room for our entire family. We felt very comfortable, we even played catch in the backyard to relax in the evening.

Our son came in from NYC on Amtrack, so having space to relax was very important.

We easily traveled the Hudson Valley area and we found a few new places to eat and vist from the information binder in the home.

This was our first time using a home for our vacation rental, this worked out so well I dont think we will be using hotels again.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay! So happy that your vacation turned out exactly as you had hoped. We agree renting a home for your vacation needs is so much more then a hotel can offer. We appreciate your kind words and we look forward to having you and your son back soon for a meet up!

We rented the house for the Memorial Day weekend. We planned to hike in the region and invited two friends to join us for a BBQ. Several things made the experience in this home disappointing. First, the chairs on the outdoor deck were all defective-in fact at least two were broken and fell apart; the remaining two were also defective and wobbly. When I contacted the owner regarding the chairs and the fact that the washer and dryer wasn't working, she thanked me and suggested that if I hadn't informed her she might have charged me for the broken chairs, she also suggested we use a local laundromat for our dirty clothing. I find it difficult to believe she wasn't aware of the broken chairs-all of the outdoor chairs showed visible signs of aging and disrepair-how is it possible they were not aware?

The A/C in the bedroom was not only too small to effectively cool the upstairs bedroom, it was falling apart, noisy, and partially held together by a T-shirt that was stuffed into the side of the A/C; because it did not properly fit in the window and was held together by a T-shirt, bugs continuously entered the bedroom and landed on the bed (the A/C is above the headboard).

In terms of cleanliness, the house was visibly clean, however, and given that the washer/dryer wasn't working it is not clear to me whether the bedroom sheets were changed before our arrival. The dishwasher contained dirty dishes, and the BBQ was disgusting-we thoroughly cleaned it but it was very clear it hadn't been cleaned in a very long time.

The other oddity is the requirement that you enter the home via the garage- a key was not provided for our stay, just a garage door opener. The opener only worked for one side of the garage and low and behold, it was the side of the garage which contained tons of furniture. Before our arrival the owners sent a long email outlining their requirements for our stay, including leaving the home in the exact condition upon arrival, watering their plants, not moving furniture, picking up their mail and stripping sheets, bringing garbage to the curb and starting a load of wash (sheets/towels) before leaving.

Finally, the house was completely cluttered with the owners personal belongings, leaving no room for guests to place their personal belongings.

This house is about the convenience of the homeowners and not guests who rent the home; very little effort was made to consider the needs of guests.

Renter beware.

Owner's Response: Vrbo allows us as renters to also review our guests. We had an unfavorable experience with these renters, but chose to take the high road and not put out the faults we ran into in regards to their stay. Its always unfortunate as small business owners to have guests poorly review a property instead of speaking with the owners directly and coming to an agreement they both can be happy with. As for this review. There were many issues brought up that were never brought to our attention. I also worry that many guests do not understand how Vrbo (vacation rental by OWNER)actually works. This is our home, we have three of them. We have been in the hospitality business for years, we own a Bed and Breakfast in Saratoga Springs, Ny as well as two other homes in New York and we split our time between them, therefor they are, yes, our homes. Someone who is not interested in seeing our "things" would certainly be better suited in a hotel, which we certainly feel this couple would have been happier in. As for leaving "requests" these are things you do when you rent a home (as we have many many times all across the country). Taking out your garbage, watering flowers on a very hot day, and taking the sheets off the beds before you leave, certainly are not things we feel are any inconvenience since we provide a service like even providing you with sheets in the first place (many are bring your own). As for the washer being broken its very hard to have control over certain things like a washer machine breaking during a guest turn over and not being able to get a technician in for several days. We gave you the heads up about this a week prior and apologized for any inconvenience. Other such issues that you wrote about were certainly just exaggerations by a guest we feel is taking out her issue with a payment on us. We are very saddened by these accusations and will be contacting the dozens of guests we have had since April in regards to reviews that we know will categorize us in the light we know we deserve. Our home has been described as "perfect, comfy, relaxing, convenient" and being in the hospitality business I go above and beyond in recommendations. For this particular guest that meant hikes, dinners, and other such things while they were staying with us. We realize that in this industry pleasing everyone is not possible. We aim to provide an A+ service to each of our guests. I would recommend to this guest in the future not using VRBO for their vacation needs.
