Overview

About the property

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.

Relaxed comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were attending our son's graduation from West Point and stayed at this lovely stone cottage. It was clean and comfortable and a perfect place to relax after long days. The grill was perfect for cooking steaks for our after graduation dinner. Would absolutely stay here again!

Cozy retreat perfect for a weekend away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our dog up for a weekend and had a great time despite the weather. The house has a great layout and is very cozy and stocked with all necessities for cooking and hanging out. The bathroom is really nice and modern, and the master bedroom has a very comfy bed. Overall, we were very happy with our choice of places to stay!

Perfect cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Liz's cottage was perfect for our relaxing get-away. We felt like we were staying at a luxurious resort, while also feeling as though we were staying at a friend's house. The cottage is very comfortable. She has thought of everything, and more! I hope to stay again before she sells it!!!

Great, relaxing stay in Carmel, NY

  • 5 of 5

A group of six stayed in the house and were very comfortable. The house was clean, well stocked, and gave the full experience of the Hudson Valley. We found everything from groceries to a movie theater in the surrounding area, and of course the views were outstanding. Liz was very accommodating and easy to work with. Definitely will be staying there again.

Excelente decisión!

Pasamos toda mi familia un muy buen inicio de año en esta súper equipada casa. Los dueños siempre atentos a nuestras necesidades y con una muy buena limpieza. Aunque extrañamos la chimenea, todo lo demás fue lo prometido! Totalmente recomendada para sus vacaciones!!!
