About The Owner

I am an Interior Designer, originally from the Midwest and Upstate New York. My husband, Ross, grew up in the cottage, he is now a fine artist and painting professor.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1994

Why The Owner chose Hudson Valley

This property is my husband's childhood home. His parents rented, then purchased the cottage from a local landowner in the mushroom business. The house is filled with warm memories as well as examples of Ross's early paintings. He was and is strongly influenced by the beaurtiful Hudson Valley light!

What makes this cottage unique

The quiet setting is truly magical. I will never forget the first time I drove up the hill and saw the house and stone chimney surrounded by cedar trees. It is a special place!!

Cozy and Charming Cottage in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and communication with the host was seamless. The space was clean, comfortable, and wonderfully decorated with a modern meets rustic feel. We used the kitchen and the outdoor grill for cooking. We loved sitting outside on the patio in the evening. The house is located in a very quiet area tucked away in the trees. The pictures on Home Away don't really do the space and the surrounding property justice. I recommend staying here without hesitation for anyone who is looking for a relaxing getaway. Four people are easily accommodated with two bedrooms handy. The living room area is quite large and is great for just laying around and relaxing. The location is also quite convenient to much of what the Catskills has to offer; most things being within a 30-45 minutes drive. We had an excellent stay and will stay here again when we visit the area in the future.

Cozy and stunning all in one!

  • 5 of 5

This adorable cottage was a great getaway. We toured the whole Hudson Valley and used this as home base. The views are spectacular and the house is oh so comfy. Fresh flowers greeted us and a brand new bathroom with products included was a bonus. I will return here for sure!

Peaceful and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place. Things that worked for us - fireplace, cozy living room, clean white sheets and towels, dining nook, streaming light, and private area outside the house. I wish the wi-fi was a bit stronger. I tried to work from there and it was a bit hard. That being said, this is a place where you want to switch off all devices and be with nature.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

A really sweet and charming place. Simple but tasteful and clean interiors. The place was actually larger and more beautiful than it looks in the pictures. The kitchen was well equipped for those who plan to cook. Nice and secluded place with magnificent trees surrounding the property. The property owner was very helpful and punctual in all our communications. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Saugerties.

Charming Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend getaway at Maureen's home. The house was prepped, heat turned on, and fireplace was all setup in anticipation of our arrival. Maureen was great with directions and recommendations and she made herself available throughout the weekend if we had any questions. The house is about a 2 hour drive from Manhattan and is far enough away from everything for privacy yet close enough to shopping and restaurants should you venture out. We definitely enjoyed a relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle of NYC.
