About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Year-round country getaway privately situated on over 2 acres of woodland and open fields with a meandering stream and mature cottage garden. Perfect spot for the outdoor enthusiast, culture-seeker or those looking to get away from it all and just relax.

The great room with vaulted ceiling, wideboard pine floors and wood-burning stone fireplace has a wall of glass doors that opens to the deck with views of surrounding countryside -- this is the gathering area and the place to be if you are cooking, eating or just hanging out talking, listening to music or watching a movie. The kitchen contains everything you could possibly want for preparing gourmet meals and hardy country breakfasts. Basic spices, condiments and accoutrements provided. The dining table comfortably seats six.

In the wintertime, a blazing fire is a must and is also used to toast marshmallows for s'mores. There is plenty of firewood and kindling stored under the deck for guests to use. The snow transforms the landscape and it is a wonderful time to take a walk along the babbling brook or a jaunt around the property via cross-country skis or snow shoes. There are 2 pairs of women's x-country skis and a pr of snow shoes for guests to use.

In summertime, the activity shifts outdoors to one of the two large decks, the lawn, garden and expansive woods. There are numerous seating/napping and dining areas on the deck and property. The front deck, off of the great room, is the more shady of the two. It holds the outdoor dining table, umbrella and chairs, large charcoal grill, 4 rocking chairs and 2 chaise lounges. The back deck, off of the master bedroom is always sunny.

There are 4 chaise lounges and a big umbrella and it over looks my backyard and wildflower garden. A favorite napping place is the hammock strung between 2 trees in the shade. New this year is a firepit and chairs that overlook the babbling brook.

Comfortably accommodates UP TO 6 people. The sun-filled master suite with queen-sized bed and country pine furniture, has its own attached full bath and glass sliding doors that open to a newly built large deck surrounded by lawn and gardens. A large second bedroom with two twin beds and a third bedroom with a twin trundle bed (twin bed expands to be a king or two separate twin beds) share a full hallway bath.

Privately situated within 30 minutes of most attractions in the Hudson Valley, the Catskills, and the Berkshires. Fifteen minutes from Rhinebeck Center. Fifteen minites from Bard College. Fifteen minutes from Lake Tagkanic State Park. 30 minutes to Poughkeepsie and Hudson.

About Suzanne

I'm from NYC, but always loved going away to summer camp as a kid. What I've tried to re-create here is what I would call the experience of 'getting away'. An easy-care country house with lots of outdoor living space, gardens, wooded area and a babbling brook. And indoors a great room with fireplace and lots of seating for a group to relax.

Suzanne purchased this chateau / country house in 2000

Why Suzanne chose Red Hook

I must have looked at over 40 properties that were under a 2 hour commute from Manhattan. I was like Goldilocks.This is my perfect "not so big house" in the country.

It's located on a private, quiet country road set- ack from the street with land and plenty of privacy but close enough to town and key amenities like great restaurants, stores, groceries, movies the arts, parks. It's north of Rhinebeck, south of Hudson, east of Kingston and northwest of the Berkshires.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

People tell me that it's cozy and that they love the private setting in the woods and the opportunity to walk around the babbling brook. And the proximity to every thing you could possibly want to visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Suzanne,

just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time in NY, thanks in large part to our stay in your lovely home. It was so peaceful and relaxing to be there. I am so happy that I found your listing and that it all worked out.

A beautiful house, tastefully furnished on a large, wooded lot, this property is ideal for a comfortable vacation. The kitchen and dining areas have high-quality equipment with everything one might want. The three bedrooms have comfortable beds and the living room and deck have plenty of seating indoors and out. The excellent photos were an accurate record of the lovely property. The location is convenient to the Taconic Parkway and is only about 15 minutes from the town of Red Hook which has an excellent super market, Hannaford's, flower and fruit stands, restaurants, is close to Bard College with its superb Performing Arts Center and only an hour from Tanglewood.

lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time. The home is homey with a full functional kitchen and dinning area. Living room is cozy with a large comfy coach. We loved the out door deck and ate all our meals out side. The garden is comfortably laid out with wild flowers about and several thoughtful sitting arrangements to sit and have morning coffee. Only five miles away from swimming, boating and hiking in beautiful Lake Taghkanic state park. I diffidently would recommend this lovely home.
