Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Carmel - Retreat Home in Hudson Valley

Quiet and serene, with activities and fun all close by.

Peaceful. Restorative. Healing.

Quiet, comfortable, and full of light and love, our stone cottage is the perfect place to escape NYC and renew your body, mind and soul.

Nestled in the woods just 1 hour from Manhattan in the hidden gem of Kent Lakes, NY, the cottage is the perfect country escape for a single, couple, or small family. The cottage is a great option for people who want a convenient country getaway without the hassle of owning a second home. Easy access to all major highways, parkways, and Metro-North make trips down to NYC a breeze.

Well-behaved pets are welcome, and the shaded, fenced-in run gives you peace of mind that your entire family – including the four-leggers – will be happy.

All around you, the grandeur and charm of the Hudson Valley awaits. Mountains, lakes, rivers…hiking, biking, swimming…antiques, farms, world-class gardens…snowmen, sledding, cross-country skiing – season after season, it’s all just minutes away. Cold Spring, Beacon, Hudson, and a host of other charming Hudson Valley towns are all just a short, scenic drive away. You’re close to everything while still being quiet and secluded.

The house is thoughtfully decorated without ever feeling fussy. It’s all designed to help you relax, let go, and breathe easy…like being in an old friend’s home. All of the amenities are included, there’s an office space where you can get work done, and there are numerous spots to curl up with a good book or just take in the views of the surrounding forest.

Unwind. Let go. Sleep in. Breathe easy. Take in the charm of the area, or enjoy the peace and quiet of doing nothing at all. Either way, you’ll feel relaxed and renewed.

Little Slice of Heaven in the Hudson Valley

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two of our kids gathered here for a Thanksgiving weekend. The house was so cozy and functional. The area is beautiful, and there are many hiking, running and biking options. The house is far enough from Carmel center to let you feel secluded yet close enough so grocery runs are easy. We will definitely be going back.

Hudson Valley Cottage with Great Access to Area Attractions

  • 5 of 5

My wife, mother, and our two Chihuahuas enjoyed a great three night stay and four day visit to the Hudson Valley area. The stone cottage is located in a great area. We spent our first day visiting Peekskill. On day two we went to West Point. Our third day was spent antiquing in Rhinesbeck and we finished our trip by going to Hyde Park to visit FDR's residence, presidential library and museum. All of these attractions were within 45 minutes of the stone cottage. The home was very comfortable, clean, well appointed, and simply charming. We had a great stay!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

It was paradise to spend a week in Carmel, NY at foliage time. So beautiful.

This home was very comfortable, clean, well equipped, and lovely furniture to fit the style of the house (so charming). The owner is wonderful and everything went smoothly: She even had a dog bed ready and toys for my pooches. We had a great stay. The outdoor area is great with a trail in woods behind house. There is a relaxing outdoor area with table, chairs and another area with tree stump furniture near the outdoor grill. Couldn't be better. We hope to be back!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a better location. The cottage was just a few miles from my relatives' house, and close to town. The home was bright, cozy, tidy, beautifully furnished, and so welcoming to pets. There were food/water bowls in the kitchen and a dog bed in the living room. The kitchen was very well equipped with modern appliances and plenty of cooking utensils. We had such a lovely stay and we look forward to coming back!
