Overview

About the property

Come for a tranquil visit to the Hudson Valley!

Situated well off the road in a country setting on a corner wooded and park-like setting of 5 acres, my guest cottage is spacious, (the main room is 18' x 18') fully furnished with a queen size bed, and has a fully equipped separate galley kitchen and bath. The cottage has slate counters and floors in the kitchen and bath, and a working corner wood stove. Located about 7 miles from the center of Rhinebeck or Red Hook, 4 miles from Omega Institute, about 10 - 15 minutes to Bard College, 6 miles to the Taconic Parkway. As a studio, it is really suitable for 1 or 2 guests only. Off street parking, handicap accessible, best bang for your buck in Rhinebeck. My house is also on the property but the angle between the main house and the guest house still allows for very good privacy. Please note that there is a large stand-in slate shower with great water pressure, but there is no tub. There is a beautiful pond on the property as well partially visible from the cottage. This is a great area for walking, hiking, biking and driving around visiting the numerous historic sites in the area.

About merri cook

We live on the property so are here to assist you with anything you need during your stay. Our house is situated about 75 feet from the guest cottage but because of the angle of the two building's location, there is still privacy between the house and guest house. With Homeaway since March 2015, everyone who has ever stayed in the cottage has loved it.

merri cook purchased this cottage in 1999

Why merri cook chose New York

privacy, serenity, quiet country park-like setting, yet close to the many historic sites in the Hudson Valley

What makes this cottage unique

Enjoy the country quiet while still being close to all of the sights and attractions of Rhinebeck and the Hudson Valley. My property is very pretty and neighboring homes are only remotely visible only in the winter. When the trees fill in, privacy is excellent as I am on a corner wooded lot. There is a nice 5 mile loop on a side road that even has sections where the road is still dirt, not paved! That's the country for you! There are friendly neighbor dogs and cats who we do not allow in the guest house, but who are pleasant visitors.

Good location

  • 2 of 5

The cottage is in an ideal location for visiting the area.

We did not find the cottage appealing. It felt like it was leftover furniture and decorations that did not go together.

We also had a hard time with the smell of the well water. I know it can be strong, but you can not leave the bathroom door open due to the smell. We had locked up the place and left the bathroom open for the day while we were sight seeing and we came back to an unbearable smell of sulfur and iron. I wish I had been warned to leave windows open or close the bathroom door. I read note discussing the well water, but that does not describe it.

Beautiful, Quaint and Secluded Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was beautiful, comfortable and quaint. It was decorated lovely and I felt at home as soon as I walked through the door. We enjoyed are stay in Rhinebeck enormously. I would say that the only negative thing was the sulfur water that serviced the cottage. For someone who is not used to the smell of sulfur water, it can be quite overpowering. The owner provided drinking water, but the odor of the sulfur water when you were bathing or washing your hands was a little unpleasant. If you can overlook that, the cottage is a very lovely place to stay.

Super cute little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Owner friendly and accommodating, cute little place. Bring bottled water. Water very sulfury. Otherwise cute and close to everything in town! We plan on coming back. Way better then staying in an overpriced hotel or having to stay in Kingston. Enjoyed immensely!!!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you! Glad you enjoyed the "catch and release" on the pond and that the bass were so accommodating. There is a water treatment system, maybe it didn't auto-run while you were here...

Cute and cozy, but the water had a sulfur smell.

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was clean and had many nice amenities. It had nice functioning kitchen, slate tiled bathroom, and a sitting area with a wood stove. Many historical sites with hiking near by. Unfortunately the water has a strong sulfur smell. It is safe to drink although she provides spring water.

NYC got you down?

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazingly rejuvenative. I visited solo, over a long weekend, and enjoyed every moment in the cottage and in nearby downtown Rhinebeck. The quiet is a perfect foil to Manhattan's din, and it's exactly what I needed. I recommend this place to any solo vacationer or couple.

Merri was incredibly accommodating and, although I didn't meet her in person, she was available via email and phone, and she provided me with great recommendations (e.g. hiking trails, restaurants).

The cottage itself is awesome. There's a nice backyard area, and the wood-burning stove made for a truly cozy environment. The place has everything a person could need for a relaxing weekend stay.

Thanks so much, Merri!
