About Property Manager/Owner

Love to cook, paint, entertain, and work--still must do it but isn't that great!

Love to garden too and have a perennial garden all around and vegetable planters!

Property Manager/Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why Property Manager/Owner chose New York

Because it's light, bright, roomy, air conditioned, new bathrooms, updated kitchen, right in the heart of the village, steps away to shopping, library, bookstore, Pilates, yoga, art classes and lots of great restaurants! Has four comfortable bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half, great big living room, dining room, family room, and modernized kitchen and outdoor spaces at front and back for sitting, vegetable garden, and close to Bard College, Vassar College, Omega, 1+ hour to the Berkshires and not far from the Catskills and skiing. Use my pots and pans and spices and cook here, watch TV, use my Wi-Fi, and relax. Close to my gym and Pilates classes, too. Have two bicycles to use. Rent for a weekend, week, month or two!

What makes this house unique

The village is a gem, maybe the best place I've lived with culture, food, kind people and so much near by, including the Berkshires 1+ hours away. And even in the deadly winter, it's still a joy to put on a coat, hat, gloves and boots and stroll out to see how pretty the town looks.

lovely home perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Four or us headed to Rhinebeck for the NY Wool and Sheep! We couldn't have asked for a better location! RIGHT in town -- blocks from shops and restaurants. It was a 15 walk to the fairgrounds which was perfect. The house is absolutely stunning and impeccable -- lovely decor and spacious for us. We had a great weekend and will most def. stay there again. You really can't beat the location!

Wonderful weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Rhinebeck for a wedding and the house was wonderful -- very comfortable and the location couldn't be better. Barbara made us feel right at home and was incredibly responsive to all our questions/needs! We will certainly book again if our travels take us back to Rhinebeck!

Great Location

Beautiful historic home with original details. Wonderful location right in the center of town - close to shops, restaurants, etc. Attentive owner who baked us cookies and provided bagels upon arrival. Very much enjoyed our stay and our time in Rhinebeck.

Excellent location and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Five friends and I had a wedding to attend in Rhinebeck, and this house was perfect for us for the weekend - plenty of space for six adults, two full bathrooms, an outdoor sitting area, and in a wonderful location, just two blocks from the (lovely) main downtown area of Rhinebeck, where there are lots of shops to browse, cafes to eat at, etc. The house is very spacious, clean, and comfortable. Barbara was also kind enough to pick us up from the train station when we arrived on Friday night, so we were truly not in need of a car at all for the weekend.

Perfect place for a weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

Four friends and I had a wonderful stay at Barbara's home in Rhinebeck on beautiful late Spring weekend. We were in town for the wedding of a good friend of ours. Everything was perfect during our stay. We had a great time in every respect. Barbara's house is gorgeous, uniquely decorated, historic and it is also a real home. That gave us all a nice feeling during our stay. The house is spacious inside and out with a nice backyard. Everyone had their own bedroom. Two and a half baths made our morning/evening routines uncomplicated and getting ready for the wedding party a breeze.

The house is located just outside the heart of Rhinebeck where there are restaurants and shops to explore. This was great because most of us came up on the train and so had independence to get into town to grab a coffee or a bite to eat or got to the good yoga studio in town. I also found an outdoor running track nearby at the public high school, which served me well to squeeze in some exercise between wedding festivities.

Barbara has been kind and easy to work with throughout. She gave us tons of information about the area that came in handy and was easily available by phone and text during our stay. I highly recommend staying here and would love to again if I visit the area in the future.
