About Adam or Rich

We own and rent other properties....from this mountaintop retreat to a small cape cod waterfront condo. We love creating beautiful environments and experiences for our guests.

Adam or Rich purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Adam or Rich chose Hudson Valley

This property is meticulously maintained and offers something for everyone. It is totally private and an incredible treat for all. Certainly a place to relax and have a good time but not a "wild party house" please.

What makes this lodge unique

Very large home is perfect for corporate retreats, family reunions and other gatherings, etc.

Horse stalls and corrals on the property allow you to bring your own horse if you like. Ask us about boarding your horse during your stay or if you would like to arrange a carriage ride. Come stay with us and enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“One of the most beautiful homes and properties I have ever visited. The views are really indescribable. The serenity and seclusion are second to none. Every room was well appointed, every feature was beautifully done and the house is very well thought out. Especially the common areas. Great place.”

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend in the winter and had a wonderful time at the house. We had five couples all with little kids and there was more than enough space for all of us. Bedrooms are all big enough to accommodate pack-n-plays. Plenty of bathrooms. Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook (food delivery options are limited). Great sledding hill and the kiddos loved to see the horses. Absolutely amazing views. Would highly recommend for groups. Thanks to Rich and Adam for hosting us. We would love to come again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves and our winter wonderland in Old Chatham. We would love to have you and your families return any time. We agree it is a great place to spread out and enjoy yet feel very cozy at the same time. Let us know about your food desires for next time and we can arrange food delivery or better yet a chef to cook in or deliver prepared food for you and your family. Remember each season holds its own special treats at our place. Lots of winter options as well as summer and autumn activities. Thanks again for your visit and please be sure to come see us again. Best to you. Rich and Adam

Wonderful stay for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here last weekend and had a great time. The house was well equipped to sleep all of us 11 adults and 1 toddler with a group of 6 adults who came to visit during the day time. We had plenty of space. There is an outdoor enclosed patio that would have been ideal for dinner for all of us if it weren't for the single digit weather and 20mph gusts of wind. Patio is unheated. The one thing to note is that patio is off a bedroom. Also, there isn't enough flatware, plates, and bowls for a big group. We had to pick up some to fill in the gaps. So just a heads up to future visitors. The town of Chatham is really close. Brewery, cheese shop, grocery store, nearby hiking. We'd love to go back!

Owner's Response: Hi Ted, We are thrilled that you and your family had a great time. We would love to have you all come back in the future. The fall is also absolutely beautiful up there (late September through mid November). The summers get booked up early. We are also happy to pass along a discount to returning guests. Best, Rich

Stunning! The house, the property, & the views are all amazing! Great country experience: 10/10

  • 5 of 5

We had a family group of 20 adults/kids for Thanksgiving week. From the moment we arrived everyone was amazed by the house itself and the views from the top of the hill where the log home sits. Everything was very clean, which is very important to us. The 3 levels and 7 bedrooms is a great amount space and we never felt cramped. Incredible country experience. Adam the owner could not be more helpful. He was very responsive when needed. This was our second time staying here and it won't be our last! Highly recommend it.

A fantastic house, an excellent time

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house, modern, comfortable, and warm. The descriptions of the view really don't do it justice. We were blown away the first night by the sunset on the deck. Owner and caretakers were friendly and very responsive. The location was excellent. One minor quibble: kitchen could use some more serving pieces. We managed to mix margaritas for above mentioned sunset, but would have been nice to have a pitcher. This is the fourth year in a row we have used VRBO, and all agreed this was the best house yet

Extraordinary property

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house sitting atop an elevation with magnificent views. It is very comfortable in every way. The bedrooms are spread out for maximum privacy. The bed linens and towels are extremely comfortable. The deck with grill, as well as the living and dining areas, offer gorgeous westerly views with spectacular sunsets. What truly distinguishes this home are the owners and the caretakers, who really responded to our every need, and went above and beyond to offer assistance as needed.
