Stella Farm has great flow, which makes it ideal for entertaining and vacationing in all seasons. Winters are spent by the three fireplaces – in the kitchen, dining room and living room. The house is ideal for both cozy fireside meals in the kitchen with friends or hosting the whole family by the hearth for Thanksgiving. In the summer you can enjoy a brand new swimming pool, an abundant organic vegetable garden, a charming pond and beautiful grounds. There is a large screened in porch off the kitchen and a deck overlooking the pond. The dock, row boat and swimming tubes invite much fun in the summer months. There is also a state of the art trampoline, a volley ball net and many other fun activities. Stella farm is extremely child and family friendly. Also perfect for a romantic getaway.
The house is ideally situated – near Rhinebeck, Red Hook, Tivoli and Bard College's Fisher Center for the Performing Arts. Twenty minutes from the the Amtrak station and nearby to both the Catskills and Berkshires for skiing and cultural events. And very nearby are both Greig and Meade Farms for seasonal fruit and vegetables along with Gigi's market.

We are a New York City based family. We love our country house and are happy to share its beauty and great energy with like-minded people and families.
Carolyn Cohen purchased this farmhouse in 2010
The area is great: it has all the advantages of the country and is only and hour and forty five minutes from NYC. Beautiful hiking, biking and swimming, great restaurants, wonderful shopping and antiquing, and a lot of cultural events (especially at Bard college)
The place is magical: the brand new swimming pool is wonderfully refreshing, the pond is majestic, birds galore, grounds are wide, quiet and poetic.
The property is amazing, green and peaceful, with everything you need to lower your blood pressure and raise your pleasure quotient. The screened-in porch overlooking the pond became our home (we didn't eat a single meal inside long weekends over a whole month). On hot days, the pool and garden are like Eden. Quiet road with stunning neighboring farms make it impossible not to walk nearby. A little farther afield but still a short walk away you can explore 19th century graves, pick berries and apples, and take in spectacular sunsets over the Catskills (yes, they are real mountains). Farms in the area provide the freshest and best tasting produce one can buy anywhere. And between Rhinebeck, Red Hook, and Tivoli (with Hudson just a little further up the road), you have many restaurants, cafes, and galleries to choose from. A wonderful vacation--short or long.
Stella farms is a lovely old farmhouse that sits on one of the most beautiful plots of land in the vicinity. The house is charming and decorated authentically in tasteful and comfortabe antique style: the grounds are gorgeous, with old growth trees, beautiful gardens, and farmland across the quiet road. Pool and amenities are terrific. This is not a new build house with all the trimmings. Rather it is a delightful rustic place for those who want a true weekend in the countryside plus pool and creature comforts.
This house is perfectly charming and situated on a beautiful piece of property. It is great for entertaining with a long farmhouse table and well stocked kitchen. We spent a couple weeks over the holidays with our young daughter and a few friends. The location of this house makes it very convenient to get to all the various towns in the area like Rhinebeck, Saugerties, Hudson, etc. Carolyn is a dream to work with.
My family and I have been renting this house for several years. It is absolutely wonderful with a screened in porch overlooking a large pond, swimming pool and trampoline for the kids. The location in red hook is desirable as well with easy driving access to town, hiking paths and berry picking to name a few activities we enjoyed. I highly recommend this rental!
We love going to Stella farm. This was our third visit. It is very well located for various attractions and amenities.
The house is great for staying in and cooking with friends and family gathered around the kitchen fire place. Wonderful outdoor space for kids to play and explore.
Carolyn makes the whole process of renting as simple and effortless as possible.
My husband and I decided take a short trip upstate to celebrate Father's Day. We booked last minute with Carolyn and she made everything just so easy. The house is in great condition looks like the pictures. It has rustic charm. We really enjoyed using the pool, barbecuing out back and having dinner on the screened in porch after putting the kids to bed.
Plus, Carolyn pointed out that they were near Greig farm we went to pick fresh veggies here.
I would recommend this house for families or for a friends get together.
