About Shannon Williams

Our family has enjoyed this vacation home for many years. It has been the perfect place to find time to unwind from our busy and hectic lives in NYC. With three young children we did not want anything too remote so felt the close proximity to Hudson with shops and great dining provided the perfect balance for us.

Shannon Williams purchased this house in 1996

Why Shannon Williams chose Hudson Valley

Living in NYC we wanted a property that felt secluded yet not too remote. The moment we walked inside and saw how open and airy it was with the high ceilings and skylights we new we loved it. The in ground pool and pond sealed the deal.

What makes this house unique

Only 2 hours from NYC yet a world away in relaxation. Sitting by the pool watching the deer drink from the pond as the sun sets over the mountains is a favorite family pastime.

A Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to relax and possibly ski for about 4 or 5 days during the holidays. When we found this perfect house on line we were very excited. When the time came for me, my husband, daughter and our dog Sophie to pile into the car and take the trip up from Manhattan we were anticipating the best. We were not disappointed! The house turned out to have a real warmth to it. It was invitingly bright, clean and comfortable. The property was heaven for our Retriever and we even got some snow by the tail end of our stay! We enjoyed cozying up to the fireplace, preparing meals in the wonderful kitchen and visiting Hudson and the other nearby towns. The owners, have been so accommodating from the start and helped make this trip so pleasant. All in all it was a great escape! We will definitely keep it in mind for another vacation in the future- probably for the summer when there's even more to do.

Thank you Shannon & Robert!

Perfect weekend getaway !!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband ,myself & our 2 dogs spent 3 nights in October for his birthday. The house was wonderful, warm, cozy & very clean.There was a fireplace & beautiful kitchen so we ended up staying in at night to cook & sit by the fire. The town of Hudson was about a 10 minute drive. We got to enjoy some shopping & treats from one of the local farms. The weather was so beautiful our last day ,we had a little picnic by the pool before we headed back to the city.Unfortunately we didn't have a chance to meet Robert but he was readily available whenever we had a question, & was extremely nice & accommodating.Our dogs had a fun time too running around the beautiful grounds.We got to pick apples & pears from their trees which was a bonus.We highly recommend this home & look forward to returning in the near future.

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 and my brothers family of 4 had a wonderful 2 night stay here! I would highly recommend it! This Hudson home is very comfortable and has a wonderful feel with lots of light and so many areas to relax, from the cool swimming pool to the morning sun decks and the indoor porch. The kitchen is awesome and it was just a perfect place to stay. The bathrooms are awesome too! It was so nice to meet Robert who was very friendly, accommodating and helpful showing us around. The grounds are very private. It was a wonderful weekend stay! Loved it! Sarah N.

A relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband, our son and our city dog spent 4 nights and found it relaxing. There is so much lawn and trees around the surrounding property that this really felt like a countryside retreat. The kitchen and bathrooms were modern and clean. The living spaces and bedrooms had a bright rustic feel. There was also an abundance of clean towels in each bathroom and by the pool. We met one of the owners Robert and he was really nice and made sure we were all set. When we had questions about the house, he responded pretty quickly.

Our son loved the toddler swing and slide and helping us pick apples from the many apple trees, which as advertised, were delicious! There were plenty of toys and books for him as well, a few if which I ended up ordering off Amazon when we got home.

There were a couple of 90+ degree days so not having AC in most of the house took some getting use to, but there were ceiling fans and a central air system, which circulated the air in every room.

We would definitely stay here again. I can see it being a great place for sledding when it snows, there are nice hilly areas.

Week near Hudson, NY

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had a wonderful week in this beautiful home! The owners were very gracious in making sure we were settled and making sure we didn't have any issues. Grounds are beautiful and the house has plenty of space for everyone. The pool was a real plus on a hot summer week and is actually larger than the pictures show. Very convenient location to nearby towns and activities. Definitely would recommend this house - we will be back in the future.

Nice House / Great Owners

  • 4 of 5

Great house very close to town of Hudson. Very clean and cozy. We enjoyed the pool and grounds, plenty of room to spread out and fun to see deer stopping by. The owners were terrific, very welcoming and responsive to inquiries. Only downside is that the house is filled with light, great during cooler days but we stayed during a few hot summer days and the house heated up quickly making it difficult to cool down via AC and sleeping in wasn't much of an option when the sun rises at 6am (Bring a sleep mask!). Also wished they had wifi since we couldn't get a consistent signal.
