About Margaret Gonzalez-Long

We are a family of six who's main residence is in NYC. My husband is a resident manager for a property company and I am a high school English teacher. The house was built over 100 years ago as a two-story barn and was converted into a home in the 60's. My husband, who hails from Ireland, is very handy and spent two years fixing it up. He put in a fireplace, new floors, new walls, updated the plumbing and put on a new roof. We have four children who love the place very much and thus we hope that those who rent it will have as much fun there as we do!

Margaret Gonzalez-Long purchased this house in 2006

Why Margaret Gonzalez-Long chose Hudson Valley

Screens and electronics tend to be forgotten as there is so much to do! Soccer, baseball, wading in the creek, using the community pool - have all replaced that and at night a trip into the village for ice-cream or the mall for a walk about or a game of Life at home have helped us to reconnect as a family. For couples, eating outside under the stars, sitting in front of the fire, taking a long walk, antiquing locally, are all great escapes from everyday life - and so close to the city! The house itself is extremely cozy - wooden floors, exposed brick, beamed ceilings - you enjoy the inside as much as the outside!

What makes this house unique

There are inlaid lights in the walls in the livingroom - we fell in love with this feature. The island in the kitchen is custom made and tiled. The spiral staircase is unusual and creates more floor space in the open plan.

A perfect romantic hideaway place

  • 4 of 5

A perfect romantic hideaway place, we stayed only for one night because of previous plans. Turns out staying only one night was a mistake. Everyone enjoyed the staying. The owner was very friendly and responded in timely manner.

Weekend away with the kids

We just wanted a quiet place to get away for the weekend with the kids, this place was great! Cute cozy house, quiet area, very scenic. The cottage was as advertised and we had a great time.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! The descriptions were accurate, and if anything this home was even better than we imagined. The home is absolutely beautiful and the yard is amazing -- we wish we had more time to hang out and enjoy the outdoors. The owners were very quick to respond and easy to work with. They thoughtfully left coffee, wine and other gooddies for us to use. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you so much

Wonderful Weekend Getaway for a Family!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four lovely days at this house with our two kids (ages 3 and 4). It was perfect for us - kids loved running around the expansive property (complete with playground equipment, lots of grass/yard, a babbling stream, trees to climb, fire pit for s'mores), and we loved waking up to the sounds of birds and fresh country air in the large, bright master bedroom. The house is charming - quaint and cozy but not small. The open layout is great for a family with kids (not to mention the house is well stocked with toys and games!!). And we loved cooking/BBQ'ing and dining al fresco in the yard. The property is a great jumping off point for all kinds of Catskill adventures. We loved hiking, swimming and gazing at the waterfalls in Minnewaska State Park (just 20 mins away). Its a gem. All in all we had a perfect family vacation at this house and look forward to returning.
