A Christmas to remember!

  • 5 of 5

This house and property is special! My family stayed for a week over the Christmas Holiday and it was truly magical. The history along with the warmth and beautiful antiques, balanced with the amount of property the house sits on, made us feel like we were in our own special sanctuary. Leigh Ann (Owner) was tremendous providing us with a tour of the home upon arrival, and she had a beautiful Xmas tree decorated that helped us make an easy transition into the holiday spirit.

Classic elegance, beautiful grounds, wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

My group needed to make some last minute plans as there were no more hotel rooms within a 50 mile radius for the event that we were attending. This home is a historic landmark being built by FDR's cousin. Just the fact that FDR and Winston Churchill drank whiskey on the patio was enough for me. A lot of room in the house with 6 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Kitchen had everything that we needed and the evenings outside watching wildlife was spectacular. Very close to everything in Rhinebeck, we were at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, nice restaurants and shopping. They had a grill on site, which was nice, because after we left the event, all of us just wanted to hang out at the house on the patio. Host was wonderful and very considerate. We will return next year to this site. Thanks for a memorable experience.
