About Dale Goday

Born in New York City, and attended New York University. After graduating, I worked in the film business for many years internationally, on both sides of the camera. Eventually, that career segued into a career developing spas for a hotel chain based in Madrid., I wound up living in the Caribbean and South America for a number of years, before returning to New York due to family obligations. During this time, I opened a store in Chelsea to import containers of furniture from Asia. It was about that time, when I purchased the house in Saugerties as an investment, but upon completing the renovation I knew that it was so special, that I couldn't sell it!

Dale Goday purchased this house in 2010

Why Dale Goday chose Saugerties

After living all over the world, when I came to this property I knew it was special, and had a special vibe to it. It allows me to be at one with nature, and at the same time offers many options on things to do in the area.

What makes this house unique

The beauty and the privacy of the property, as well as the convenience, made this property a perfect fit for me. There is so much going on in the area, and all so accessible which also meant a lot, being as I was used to living in a big city for so much of my life. Art, music, events, fairs, restaurants, horse shows, etc. Then, after a busy day to come home to the big open kitchen (or the barbeque on the patio) and have a delightful meal with everything fresh and healthy......Or dine in one of the many fine, interesting restaurants in the area. Heaven!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect country retreat! A gorgeous home situated on three private acres with a pool and plenty of room for children to play. An added bonus: the home has a piano and an electric keyboard, which was the source of great entertainment for my three-year-old grandson.

The owner, Dale, could not have been kinder or more accommodating.

great, roomy, comfortable and private

  • 5 of 5

We loved the space and the privacy. There are plenty of seating areas both outside and in, if you want to just hang out and relax. It was completely clean without feeling uncomfortably pristine. It is really quick and easy to get from the house to Woodstock, Saugerties village, and Kingston. We were happy with the cable TV, Netflix, Wi-Fi, and AC.

Beautiful home in Saugerties.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in Saugerties. Spacious and open layout. Three bedrooms and three beautiful full bathrooms. We stayed for three nights. One day we spent skiing in the Catskills. Used another day to walk around in Woodstock. Lots of interesting shops and restaurants nearby. The owner was friendly and got back to us quickly with any questions that we had. Will definitely look to stay again in the future.

Peaceful, elegant, secluded and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, single-floor home in the woods was just what we were looking for.

The home occupies a single floor, perfect for anyone who doesn't appreciate stairs. The layout was very reminiscent of a Manhattan loft, with broad, sweeping spaces, furnished and decorated with excellent taste.

The kitchen was first-rate, with almost restaurant-grade equipment and lots of counter space. We never felt crowded or rushed during out stay. The deck was great, and the property is set back from the road. Weather was a bit too cool to use the pool, but it looked okay.

The owners are lovely people. We found them to be very accommodating. All-in-all, a very relaxing and satisfying stay. We plan to return next year.

Relaxing Country Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home tucked into the woods. I spent most of my time lounging and reading on the lovely terrace, cooking in the spacious kitchen and eating in dining room. This was an incredible summer escape from New York city, complete with waking up to the sound of birds and cool breezes blowing through the windows. I enjoyed many walks in the neighborhood surrounded by woods, and even found a farm to purchase fresh eggs from down the street! Saugerties was a fun day trip, and Woodstock provided great live music at night. This was an ideal summer vacation.

Private, beautiful location on a tranquil country road.

Modern open floorpan with a great kitchen and luxurious bathrooms.

Terraced outdoor sitting area.

Short drive to Woodstock with it's charming shops and nice restaurants.

Relax to the sounds of chirping birds instead of traffic!

A great place to bring your family.
