Looking for the perfect getaway? Having been avid VRBO renters in the Rhinebeck area, we purchased this stylish and sustainable, new construction home in May 2014. We fell in love with the Hudson Valley coming up for weekend getaways and loved the area so much so that we decided to make our weekend stays more frequent.
Designed by award-winning local architect, David Borenstein, his latest creation fully embraces his philosophy to design and build in a way that is mindful to the environment, yet makes bold visual statements. The home has been written up in several publications including Hudson Valley Magazine. Our house is also LEED certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) which is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement.
Our private 3 bedroom, 3 full bath home offers a light-filled open floor plan with cathedral ceilings, french doors, hard wood floors throughout, cozy gas fireplace, and a chef's kitchen. The first floor master bedroom features a walk in closet, and an ensuite bath with steam shower and jacuzzi tub. The second bedroom on the first floor has a queen bed and separate closet. The guest bath on the main floor offers a bath tub and vanity. The upstairs offers a private area with bedroom, full bath, sitting area and library.
Our home is a wonderful oasis and is perfectly suited for a romantic couples weekend away or for a family looking to explore the great outdoors. A large, open dining area with communal dining table is welcoming of a wonderful family meal or having a cocktail chatting with old friends.
Just outside the home you will find a outdoor dining table, patio with an mason built Lynx grill (great for BBQ's) and a granite fire pit perfectly paired with Adirondack chairs, a great destination for enjoying morning coffee or feeling relaxed and cozy just before bedtime.
On 8 acres there is plenty of privacy for any nature lover to explore or perhaps a backyard good old fashion game is what you desire. Either way, there are options to suit both.
Our home is also child-friendly. We offer retractable child safety gates located on the stairs, high chair, Graco pack & play, Baby Bjorn sleep crib, daybed with trundle which pulls out to (2) twin beds or (1) king Size bed, and a children's activity box filled with fun materials for children's art projects for a rainy day. Lastly, there is a large selection of children's books available.
Located in Milan township, our house is 12 minutes from both the heart of Rhinebeck (Bread Alone - our favorite coffee shop) and Red Hook proper (visit Flatiron Steakhouse on your stay for a romantic dinner); and a few minutes from the Taconic making it ultra-convenient commute if you're traveling from NYC.
Below are just a few of the many activities located near our home. Located in our house manual, there is a more extensive listing of recommended restaurants and activities including a Dutchess County tourism guide. As a guest of ours, you will have access to the Mobile Hospitality Manager - an ultra convenient HomeAway app that gives you access to anything and everything you may need throughout your stay.
