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 Saugerties

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!!

Quaint, clean, spacious and tucked away

  • 5 of 5

Little touches like extra phone chargers, fresh flowers throughout, fresh apples, fire wood already set up with kindling in the fireplace were just icing on the cake at this beautiful private property. Also, Maureen is a very attentive and responsive host.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were fortunate to be able to stay for a long weekend. It was the best escape from the city we have had in a long time! The house is gorgeous, secluded, high up on a hill, (w/fabulous views) , and private. We enjoyed the fireplace, bird watching, traveling to Hudson and Saugerties for a look-see, and the general peace and quiet. We were lucky to have two blue sky days. The morning of the third day we awoke to a beautiful gentle snowfall. Couldn't ask for more. Maureen was a great and quick communicator too. Thanks Maureen! We hope to return.

Comfortable, Cozy and Private

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend getting away from the big smoke. Maureen couldn't have been more accommodating and was sure we were settled in. Highly recommend a quick trip in to the mountains to relax and recharge at the artists retreat! You won't be disappointed. We will be back.

Cozy and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th trip and it was better than ever.

We enjoy cooking in the kitchen and on the outdoor grill.

Both Nights we made a fire in the living room fireplace.

This was our first visit in the Fall. We spent the day visiting apple orchards.

We will return!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time traveling down to stay at Maureen's amazing cottage for the HITS horse show. Everything is clean and comfortable, really easy to settle right in. Maureen takes extra care in making the beds with beautiful linens, puts flowers throughout the house and fills the bathroom with luxurious whites towels. After a long day in the dust and sun, we looked forward to her tiled shower with great water pressure and plenty of hot water. There is history throughout the house, it's evident it has been well loved and cared for throughout the years. Thank you!

Lovely Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the quiet and solitude of this location. Yet, we were so close to town and all the activities we wanted to enjoy such as visiting Woodstock and the lighthouse. Thank you for a lovely weekend and mostly, thank you for allowing us to bring our dog along for the stay!
