About the property

Come have a relaxing getaway with family or friends at our little house on a hill -just an hour from the city, or an easy train ride to the Cold Spring or Beacon train stops. Explore our 11 acres of woodland (wear boots, its a hike) and then kick back in our shaded sitting areas, or in the comfortable living room. Throw some food on the grill and enjoy a meal on the patio. Or whip up something special in the newly renovated kitchen with high end appliances and fully stocked ware. Sleeping in any of the four contemporary bedrooms shouldn't be a problem on this property; its nice and quiet, and dark -you'll actually see stars! And of course no relaxing, or activity, is complete without freshening up; the house has two bathrooms, one with a spacious shower and one in the finished basement with a Jacuzzi tub.

Take the exploring off the property to an area full of diverse activities. Hiking, biking, birding, and swimming at the lake beach in beautiful Fahnestock State Park -just minutes away. Go antiquing, or just spend the day on historic Main Street, in Cold Spring. Get inspired by fabulous art at Dia:Beacon and Stormking, both a quick drive. Pick your own fruit and vegitables, apples the obvious fall favorite, from one of the many farms (Fishkill Farms's apples cider doughnuts can't be beat). And this is only a taste of all that the Hudson Valley has to offer, much more hiking and biking, kayaking, golf, restaurants, and theater there to be discovered.

The house has free WiFi so you'll have every opportunity to plan a perfect getaway. And stream a movie when its time to put the feet up.

Wonderful escape for small groups

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six really enjoyed our stay here. The open layout lended well to a couple of great evenings cooking together with the fully stocked kitchen. Everything was cozy and comfortable, including the beds. It's a little ways outside of town, but we were looking for nature and the house is surrounded by it with large windows in case of bad weather. I wouldn't hesitate recommending to other guests looking to get out of the city for a weekend.

Enjoyable stay with 3 families

  • 5 of 5

This review is geared to families with young children (our profile), but the place is wonderful even for those without kids for different reasons (drinking wine at night on the patio and seeing stars etc.)!

Three families (each with one or two kids under the age of 4), stayed at this beautiful home over a weekend in July. The house has a very nice large living area and outdoor space so the kids could run around and it felt very safe/childproofed (only one set of stairs to worry about for the youngest in the group). The kitchen is large for communal cooking and we did barbeque one afternoon also (the grill was easy to use). Although the bedrooms are relatively small, there was enough space for two adults plus a small crib in each room and because they were uncluttered (simple decor) they felt spacious enough. The family with two kids took the two slightly smaller rooms (one for parents and one for kids), and those with one kid each, the two slightly larger rooms.

Liz was available to answer questions (on the temperature since there is central air for example - to note the downstairs floor was a bit cold) and the location is great for families. We went to two farms 15-20mins away (Fishkill Farms - to pick vegetables and fruit and Sprout Creek farm - to see the animals) and went swimming in the lake 5mins away, so even though we had intended to go to Beacon and the DIA, there was plenty to do close by so we could minimize the time in the car.

A group of 8 stayed MDW at the house, and we had a wonderful time. The property is beautiful, very secluded. Nice hiking nearby as well as Canope lake. We enjoyed large meals together indoor and out, the kitchen and grill are perfect for that. We played yard games and watched movies in the evening in the comfortable living room. Bedrooms were comfortable, two on the main level don't have AC, sleep with doors open and fans on to get some circulation. Nice bathrooms, and washer/dryer. Couldn't have felt more at home.

Thank you!

Great property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for Mother's Day weekend. My husband and I and our 3 adult children, ages mid 20's and 31. The house and property is fantastic. Very roomy, and comfy. Awesome short walk to the old Appalachian Trail. Downtown Cold Spring is not to be missed. I would also go to New Paltz. I would definitely stay in this house again.

Fantastic house, everything described and picture was accurate. We brought our 3 young adult kids for Mother's Day weekend. Lots of room for us, great location. We hiked the old Appalacian Trail which you can walk to from the house, so convenient. Great house, kitchen was perfect for family cooking. Beds were super comfy, house is newly renovated. I highly recommend this place.
