Our property offers an array of wildlife and natural beauty... with its sights and sounds....there is always something amazing to see on the river.

A quiet and serene birder's paradise where there are frequent sightings of bald eagles, red-tailed hawks, blue herons, snowy egrets, cormorants, mallard ducks and a variety of birds visiting our year-round feeder.

Perhaps you'll watch the historic sloop Clearwater set sail, see one of the local riverboats, private yachts, fellow kayakers or one of the many barges or tugboats that pass by. The Port of Albany and New York Harbor are the destinations of many of the vessels we see on the river, transporting quarried stone, wood pulp, cement and food products up and down the river.

For those who want to spend their time on the river, bring along your own kayak or canoe...follow the path down to the water...and you're off to experiencing this mighty Hudson River in a most intimate and unforgettable way. You'll see our local Kingston and Esopus lighthouses that are just to the north and south of us, the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge is also a nice excursion, nesting herons and cormorants are nearby and passing trains and historic estates will bring you back in time.

If you want to get outdoors for some hiking...many of the beautiful Scenic Hudson parks are nearby, some are only within a 15 minute drive. High Banks Preserve is Scenic Hudson's newest park, located just across the street from our property and offers 300 acres of marked trails. Esopus Meadows Preserve is just down the street, offering 96 acres of marked trails along the river, Black Creek Preserve with 130 acres, Poets' Walk is a beautiful stroll and it's just over the Kingston/Rhinecliff Bridge and Walkway Over The Hudson, just 15 minutes south of us. Mohonk Mountain House and Preserve and Minnewaska State Park offer great hiking, biking, rock climbing and swimming just within a 30-40 minute drive.

This is truly a one of a kind property.

Come ... relax and slow down.

Take time to notice what nature offers with each season.

Be inspired.

Start a tradition.

Organize a reunion, workshop or retreat.

This can be your destination....

or a jump off point to experience all that this area has to offer!

It's beautiful any time of the year!!!

Spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Two friends and I stayed a week here. The house is spacious and offers great views of the Hudson, and even from three bedrooms. It's also well-stocked, even with plenty of brochures for area attractions. The location was convenient for numerous historic sites and wineries. We only experienced one minor issue with a TV and Angela solved it in a very timely fashion. She was very responsive throughout the process. We didn't want to leave!

4 Stars - Comfortable home on the Hudson - Great Access to Historic Sites and Hiking

  • 4 of 5

4 friends greatly enjoyed this home for a Hudson Valley visit. Historic sites are within easy drive across the river. Home somewhat dated, but large rooms and windows on 2 floors had great views of a wooded area and waterfront. Comfortable beds, huge TV, lots of room. Across street from hiking area to Esopus Lake. Nearby good restaurants in Kingston and just across river. Recommend Rhinebeck Aerodrome biplane show, and "PorchFest" as well as Hyde Park's FDR Presidential Estate and Library/Museum and Hudson's Olana estate of Artist Frederick Church. Manager Angela was helpful and available.

Minor Issues: 2 outside decks and waterfront area needed cleaning. Waterfront area was accessible but chairs were dirty and in poor shape. Most closets and kitchen contained many owner's articles, food etc. Despite well screened doors and windows, various bugs were also guests. Angela responded to all these issues and will address them.

beautiful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved the spacious and peaceful ambience of the Riverview home. Perfect for our family reunion with our two adult children, a place to relax and renew, with lovely riverside views. Very well designed and appointed, everything was just as advertised and very comfortable.

Highly recommended!

Life on the River

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house with large windows providing dramatic views of the Hudson River, as shown in the photos. Very clean and comfortable and a porch with bird-feeder that makes for excellent bird-watching! As others have mentioned, Angela, the property manager, is extremely helpful and responsive without ever being intrusive. Wonderful options for hiking and kayaking in the area and the neighboring town of Kingston had everything we needed in terms of grocery stores, restaurants, etc. The location worked out well for a wedding we were attending in Poughkeepsie. It's a beautiful area with a lot to offer, so we'll just have to return to explore further!
