About Brigitte Gfeller

I love to create, especially beautiful, comfortable living spaces. My life has been enriched by many cultures, moving to different countries, while raising three amazing kids mostly by myself.

My motto is: you can always reinvent yourself while staying true to your core....I have done it many times, and hope this is what my kids learned most from me aside from being kind, honest, compassionate, loving and seeking always the best in everyone and everything.

Brigitte Gfeller purchased this apartment in 2014

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

This property was well beyond our expectations. The property was eclectic, very well appointed and extremely well kept. The outdoor garden area was a very special surprise. It was located one block away from the Hudson downtown so it was close to everything while removed from the downtown hustle and bustle. Brigitte was a gracious host and quick to help with whatever we needed during our stay.

A very special place!

  • 5 of 5

Brigitte has created a beautiful home and garden for a holiday in the Hudson Valley! Everything you might think of to make your stay wonderful has already been thought of by Brigitte. The beds are comfortable, the sitting area is relaxing, the bathroom is stunning , the dining room, spacious and the kitchen is a dream. The woodland garden is a lovely place to read or watch the birds, have breakfast or plan your next day's adventure.

I return to the Hudson Valley very often and Brigitte has created a welcoming and marvelous guest house that you will long remember! It was simply... just perfect!

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I shared a lovely, long weekend in this rental. It was beautifully designed and decorated, convenient to town and had all the amenities one could ask for. We could walk to all shopping and dining or enjoy a comfortable evening in the apartment cooking on our own from the well equipped kitchen. We could not have asked for a better stay or more comfortable beds. We absolutely would stay again!
