About Beau or John Kuhn

We are a family of 5 and use this property as a weekend and vacation home.

Beau or John Kuhn purchased this chateau / country house in 2002

Why Beau or John Kuhn chose New York

Our families started visiting this area in 1980 and we have enjoyed its beauty, activities and culture through the years. After spending a summer renting in nearby Hillsdale with another family, we loved the area so much that we decided to look for a place to buy. When we saw the views from this property, we knew we had found the perfect location. Since then our family has grown and the house has expanded. We spend every weekend and every school day off at the property enjoying all the nearby activities and always inviting others to join in our adventures. We have decided to offer our house for rent so others can enjoy this wonderful place.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This is the perfect place to experience a country spring, summer or fall. The house is designed to easily accommodate 2 or more families with a the pool (seasonal) and lot's of outdoor and cultural activities near by.

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This immaculate house is laid out in such a way to make it excellent for multiple families traveling together. Every little detail is considered from a perfectly heated pool, to hooks to hang items easily, to pool toys and games for kids. It proved to be the perfect location for a small family reunion. The property is lovely and gives the feeling of being secluded despite being close to everything you need. Would highly recommend a stay here!!

This property was everything expected and more. Pool was beautiful, house had every amenity.

  • 5 of 5

This was the nicest house we have stayed in using homeaway. Everything was better than pictured and the pool was amazing. The owners we attentive and reached out prior to stay to alert is to road closures that would affect our drive. Would definitely stay at this wonderful home again

Better than expected and perfect for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Before we even arrived, our vacation experience had exceeded our expectations. Due to an error on my part, our arrival date was incorrect and the owners bent over backwards to make up for my mistake. We met a property caretaker upon arrival who gave us a tour and property instructions and answered any questions. They even left us some arrival goodies as gifts! The pictures don't do justice to the lovely house and property. We had three adult couples and each had a master bedroom on a separate floor. The views were fantastic with welcome privacy. The pool was fabulous and when combined with its privacy allowed all of us to act like kids and have a blast. Since tourist season had not begun, the nearby town and attractions were blissfully quiet. We walked to the falls, biked the Rail Trail, and ate in town. The home, pool, and grounds were all meticulously cared for making the whole experience wonderful.

Beautiful home, helpful owners, fantastic time!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the weekend here for my father's 70th birthday. We chose it as the most central location between NYC, Boston, and central New York. All ages from 2 - 79 were in attendance, and everyone was perfectly accommodated. The house is impeccable - clean, cozy, fully stocked with everything we needed. The view from the main living area and porch was outstanding, from the morning sunrise to a midnight lightning show. The furniture and beds were all very comfortable (for 12 of us!) and spaced enough to allow my aunt and uncle privacy downstairs while my 2 year old niece could laugh (and scream) upstairs without disturbing them. Very close by to great restaurants and charming boutiques, but we spent most of our time enjoying the property.

We didn't meet the owners, but we didn't need to. They were available and responsive to all questions we had.

I only wish we had more time there.

Country living at its best

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a relaxing July in this beautiful house with my family of four (including two teenagers) and dog. The owners couldn't have been nicer and responded promptly to questions and problems making for a stress-free stay. Modern and well-maintained property, great sense of style yet family friendly, lovely pool and grounds. It is set off a private country road with just a couple of other houses nearby - but not visible - so we enjoyed a wonderful sense of seclusion and calm without feeling isolated. Its location up in the hills ensured cool nights, even on the hottest days. Views from the deck were spectacular, different sunsets and cloud formations every evening. Close to Great Barrington and Hillsdale so lots to do in the area - although we spent much of our time relaxing by the pool, enjoying dinners in the screened-in porch, and wishing that we owned this house!
