About Sue Nilsson
I live in the NYC area, and am a short drive away. I am an avid traveler, enjoy photography, and like to capture the emotions and play of light in the moment a picture is taken. I also write and for my day job I work as an Executive Assistant.
Sue Nilsson purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Sue Nilsson chose Monroe
This 1938 cottage captured my heart the moment I saw it. The deck and quiet setting are inspiring. It is comfortable, and welcoming. We spent three years updating the electricity, plumbing, and even added a carbon water filter to make sure water is pure. Stone and wood created a cozy rustic charm, with ample natural light

Great little cottage and stay!
Nice place to unwind!
Cute little cottage- perfect for our weekend visit to West Point.
This little red cottage was tucked away about 20 minutes from West Point and a great place for us to stay for our son’s A Day weekend. It was very clean and well stocked. Sue was so great at communication from start to finish! We will stay here again!
Wonderful place ! So cute! Updated! Unbelievable!
Everything about this property is top notch! So cute! Owner is wonderful too!
Will be back!
Good Hudson Valley Location
Overall it was a pleasant cottage to stay a week and explore the Hudson Valley. My tall niece and daughter were able to share the bed and sleep in the loft just fine which was my main concern at booking. There was plenty in the area within 30-45 minutes to entertain teens (State Parks, Drive-In Theater, Splashdown Beach Waterpark, etc.). We took a long day trip into NYC using the Cordlandt Station which ran during nonpeak hours. Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and the wax museum were all good attractions for teens. The wifi worked fine in the cottage but the girls tended to play board games, do crafts or watch dvd movies (on my daughter’s laptop) in the cottage for their downtime. The host was nice, easy to reach if necessary and provided lots of little extras.
Great Relaxing Stay
When my wife and I travel, we look for properties that are clean, quiet and comfortable. The little red cottage more than fit the bill for these qualities. I would highly recommend this property for those looking to get away for a few days and just relax!
Swedish Cottage in the Woods
Great little home in the woods. Very comfortable and modern, in a very European way. Will definitely come back.
The cottage is less than 20 minutes from shopping, wineries, hiking, biking and lakes where you can take your canoe or kayak or go swimming. It is located half way between Monroe, NY and Washingtonville, NY. It is also a 25 minute drive (about 16 miles) to West Point Military Academy.
