About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 4-6 (over 4 guests is an extra $50 per person per night)

*Please note: the new service fee is imposed by Homeaway/VRBO and does not go to the owner*

Perfect writer's retreat; romantic getaway; or small family gathering spot!

Drive by horse farms, wineries and sheep meadows, and feel your blood pressure drop as you approach your home away from home in bucolic Clinton Corners.

Pull into the drive and you will immediately see that this handcrafted, wood beauty set on just under 2 acres is no ordinary vacation rental.

You are welcomed by the front porch with Adirondack chairs and table surrounded by columns carefully hewn from trees. Enter into the vaulted and beamed living area which includes a wood stove for those cool nights and plenty of room to lounge and read, chat, play board games... or even watch TV. Up a few steps and you'll find a chef's dream kitchen: Viking gas stove (yes, gas stove!), Jenn Air Oven; Kitchen Aid fridge and dishwasher - loads of cookbooks or create your own masterpieces if you aren't going to use the outdoor charcoal grill!

Dine al fresco on one of 3 large outdoor decks – the 50 foot long, west-facing deck off the back with built in bench the whole length for glorious sunsets and starry nights; the covered porch off the side of the kitchen; or a casual snack or drink on the covered front porch. And if the temperature or weather doesn’t permit – dine in the dining room with sliding door onto the back deck.

When your day of exploring this glorious part of the Hudson Valley has ended retreat to a delicious night’s sleep serenaded by frogs and crickets in one of the 2 bedrooms:

Master bedroom: upstairs is the huge, open and vaulted Master Bedroom with a handmade, king-sized bed crafted by the previous owner and even sliding doors leading to a small, west-facing balcony – a full bathroom with clawfoot tub and shower are also on the upper floor.

Guest bedroom: a peaceful night’s sleep awaits in the queen sized second bedroom – another full bathroom with tub and shower is just a few steps from the door

Take full advantage of the boundless and beautiful outdoor spaces by getting some sun on the deck, have a cocktail while playing bocce or croquet as the sun is setting …or take a long, lazy afternoon nap in one of the 2 hammocks.

For those times when you stay in: read one of the many, many books on the shelves throughout the house; use the super fast wifi internet that is available; watch HD TV; play board games…the world is your oyster.

We don't have enough space here to enter all of the great local activities and sites, but here are a few!:

-Dutchess County Wine Trail (we are on it!)

WINTER: Downhill and Cross-Country Skiing nearby

-Highly regarded golf courses in vicinity

-the renowned OMEGA Institute to swim and relax and be one with nature

-Culinary Institute of America

-Dutchess County Fair (August)

-Pick your own fruit and flowers

-Orchards

-farms

-Horsefarms with riding schools

-fishing streams

-terrific towns nearby: Rhinebeck, Millbrook, Red Hook, Hudson

-hiking

-great roads for cycling

-Historic sites: FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt's house; Vanderbilt Mansion

-possibly the greatest supermarket ever: Adams Fairacre Farms @ 25 minutes away by car

*SORRY NO EVENTS ALLOWED AT HOUSE: weddings, large parties, photo shoots etc*

About Michelle & Tom

We live in Brooklyn and work in NYC.

Michelle & Tom purchased this house in 2014

Why Michelle & Tom chose Hudson Valley

We both fell in love with it the moment we saw it. The previous owner was a master wood worker and built it from the ground up. It reminded us both so very much of my family's house in Sweden. It's just paradise!

What makes this house unique

No need to take blood pressure medication while you are here. Fall asleep to the sound of frogs and crickets and wake to the whinnying of the horses across the way...

Unique cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend in this cozy home. High ceilings made it feel roomy and open. Loved the wood stove!! Also all provisions were there in the kitchen- so we ended up cooking more than anticipated. Centrally located to many activities - CIA, hikes, cute Millbrook... will definitely try to reserve again.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful experience. The interaction with Michelle and Tom made us feel very welcome. The house was beautiful and had the warm, cozy atmosphere we were looking for. We had family over for dinner one night, the well-equipped kitchen made preparation easy and the wood burning stove made the living room the perfect place to gather after the meal. We look forward to our next visit.

Beautiful property, charming house

  • 5 of 5

Had a really lovely time staying at this house. Well-kept home with a gorgeous kitchen for those wanting to cook for themselves. The view out of the back of the house is incredibly picturesque. And the log-cabin feel of the home was perfectly cozy.

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! The house/property was gorgeous. Beautiful garden that they allowed us to take tomatoes from. The most spectacular kitchen with everything needed. We went apple picking and wine tasting. The location was great for everywhere surrounding. Michelle & Tom were great hosts, they even left us a bottle of prosecco to enjoy. Up to the trip, Michelle messaged me small details about the house and was very easy to get in contact if needed. I highly reccommend this home and would definitely go back!
