Overview

About the property

17 private acres, 5 + Bedrooms , 4 baths (sleeps 8-10 comfortably)

"It just FEELS AMAZING here!" is the most common sentiment expressed the minute someone walks into our home.

Our main house is set on a very secluded ridge overlooking a 17 acre field, beautiful pond, and the Catskill Mountains. The sunsets each evening are spectacular. There are 4-bedrooms, 3-full/1-half bathrooms in the main house. A large sunny living room is perfect for catching up on your reading or chatting with family and friends. A large, open dining area with center island kitchen lets you prep dinner while socializing too. A TV/movie room offers a 55 in. Samsung Flatscreen Smart TV, surround-sound stereo, DVD player, game table, fireplace, and expansive views of the pond and mountains. There's an upstairs library area with desk (in case that one last email needs to get sent). Wireless extends throughout the house to the pool area.

Upstairs you'll find an expansive and luxurious master bedroom with sitting area, private balcony, and an incredible view to wake up to - also a large en-suite master bath, with jacuzzi tub and a two person shower. There is another queen sized bedroom upstairs with it's own bathroom. A "second master" bedroom is located on the main floor, with a comfortable king bed, sliding glass doors to the outside, and it's own en-suite bathroom with shower and tub.

Finally there's a loft/futon bedroom on a third level for the adventurous! (Easily accessible by a short ladder)

Just outside the main house you'll find a trellis-covered patio, with grill and two picnic tables, a swing...the perfect setting for a summer grill out. Around the corner, past the herb garden, is another private patio area overlooking the pond with Adirondack chairs--ideal for enjoying your morning coffee, or a sip of wine at the end of the day.

The pool house includes a painter's studio, a cedar sauna, a work-out area with cardio equipment, weights and a half- bathroom. Upstairs, a fully accommodated apartment, with complete kitchen, full bath, cozy bedroom and a child bed and couch in the living area--perfect for a small family or couple to set up shop. The apartment's balcony looks out over the pool and offers a spectacular view of the Catskill mountains. PLEASE NOTE: THE POOL HOUSE APARTMENT IS NOT AVAILABLE IN WINTER MONTHS.

There's also a large yard out front, big enough for a game of touch football, Frisbee or working on the short game.

In the pool area you'll find an elegant, deep blue gunite pool surrounded by bluestone tiles authentic to the region, Smith & Hawken lounge chairs, and a dining table and chairs that easily seats 10.

Why Megan Kent chose New York

The location (10 minutes from Rhinebeck, yet totally secluded), the setting, the seasons, the river, the sunsets.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Extremely private, luxurious estate that allows you to feel completely away from it all - yet still get to town within 10 minutes for some of the best dining in the country.

Easy access from NYC by train or car.

Perfect country get away for a young family!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and my two boys, who are 3 year and 9 months spent 3 glorious days here.

Even though it was still Winter, it was such a beautiful property with totally chill out relaxing vibes. I loved the swinging chair on the front of the house watching the sunset every evening. Megan the owner is fast and responsive, she was kind enough to let us have a late check out as my son was ill and needed to sleep in. I will definitely be back to visit in summer to use that amazing pool!!!

Beautiful property, great owner

  • 5 of 5

We (3 adults plus 2 young kids) had a great stay in this beautiful house. The house is very comfortable and had everything we needed. Master bedroom is amazing, and it's great to have a second master bedroom downstairs -- not to mention an entirely separate apartment (with kitchen and sitting room) in the pool house! Megan (the owner) was *so* responsive and flexible (allowing us to check out several hours late, for example). Would love to go back in the summer when the pool is usable. Also a great location, just 90 mins away from the city and 15-20 mins away from Rhinebeck, Kingston, etc. Highly recommended!

Great holiday stay over New Year's

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our family of 6 at the house. It was warm and cozy and spacious. We loved the space and the location and would definitely want to rent it again.

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home for our stay in Rhinebeck while teaching at the Omega Institute! The home was wonderful and SO CLOSE to where we needed to be each day, making commuting back and forth for meals and breaks so convenient!

The home is amazing and so comfortable...fully stocked with everything that we needed to cook, relax, and sleep. We were only a couple of people so we had more than enough room to really spread out with all the beds, a living room, a family room (with a fireplace!), several bathrooms, and the additional pool house!

Patrick and Megan were more than accommodating and so helpful with everything. Also, available anytime if we had a question. Completely stress free!

I would highly recommend this home to anyone...and will be back myself for sure!

Perfect holiday retreat for extended family

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing, cozy home for an extended family! Our group of 8 adults and 4 small kiddos (ages 1-7) had plenty of space to relax, play, and enjoy each other in the week following Christmas.

The main room was full of windows and comfy couches and chairs. A great room for playing with new toys!

The TV room was a great puzzle and game room, and the fireplace was glorious.

The outdoor fire pit was perfect for smores, and the outdoor swing was enjoyed by many. The kids enjoyed the short walk down the hill to the half-frozen pond, where they hunted for fish and frogs.

The kitchen and pantry area had the basic things we needed for baking and cooking meals, and we all sat comfortably at the long farmhouse-style dining room table.

Each bedroom had its own character and, importantly, its own bathroom, two with wonderful tubs. All rooms were comfortable, large enough for a crib/pack n' play, and the mattresses were great!

The guesthouse was enjoyed by the grandparents - a perfect place to get away from the chaos.

All in all a perfect holiday retreat with plenty of space for a large family. Thank you to the homeowners for such a great rental option. Looking forward to returning for another family reunion!

Pure Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my goodness, what an amazing property. Rented for our large family as a home base during a hectic week of graduation events. Wish we had had no other commitments because we would have NEVER LEFT here! Incredible views, warm character and decor and fantastic pool. Plenty of beds for all, comfy couches to snuggle on, hills to roll down and bull frogs to listen to at night. Owners were attentive and personable. Above and beyond. Tip for future guests - bring your own shampoo, conditioner etc. Not a single complaint about this gorgeous home. We will be back, soon!

The Hudson River Valley. The beauty that inspired the Hudson River School of painting. Rolling hills, winding two-lane country roads, sunsets on the river, farms feeding local restaurants and farmers markets, horse country, beautiful Hudson River river estates of the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, and Livingstons, The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park fueling/elevating the quality of every local restaurant. All of it just minutes away, or maybe we'll just stay home today and sit by the pool.
