|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
A lovely stone residence, set on 37 acres of picture-perfect old oak trees and meadows, quiet and private, yet close enough to all Hudson Valley recreational and cultural attractions and historic sites. A perfect hideaway for nature lovers, hikers, artists and other folks simply seeking rest and inspiration. Elegantly appointed with 150 lavender plants it has a romantic flavor of Provence with the grapevine-wrapped pergola and local stone used as building material for garden walls, the house itself as well as the heated swimming pool. Star gazing at night, deer grazing at day, visitations by hawks and wild turkeys. Only 20 min. drive to Minnewaska State Park and to Mohonk Preserve.
We offer Wi-Fi, Cable TV, CD @ DVD player, fully equipped kitchen w/mv, dishwasher and refrigerator, and washer and dryer.
No smoking inside. All linens provided.
We spent a summer weekend here in July and couldn't have been happier. The property was terrific both inside and out, but we especially loved spending time enjoying the outdoor, beautifully landscaped spaces. The outdoor dining space was idyllic. There was a long dining table for about 10 people under a pleasant fan that kept things cool and the bugs away. The owners took care to think of details like a small stereo outside, pantry with glassware, remote control for fan, and lovely lights for enjoying the space in the evening. The grill worked great and was conveniently located. The seating area extended around the house with a nice pergola covered stone patio and bistro table. The big open lawns, beautiful trees, and meadow provided the perfect scenery especially for bird and nature lovers. The pool area and outdoor shower was similarly well maintained, clean, and offered plenty of seating and dining space. Showering under the open sky, while gazing out into the peaceful meadow, was quite rejuvenating.
The inside of the house was well appointed with an abundance of fragrant lavender. The home had an old historic feel, yet had some modern touches especially in the bathrooms. The sunroom was a very neat place to take a nap or read a book in the afternoon. The kitchen had what we needed including a large, nice cooktop. The indoor dining area off of the kitchen was on the smaller side (accommodating around 4 people) which wasn't a problem for us given the great weather outside, but could be a tighter squeeze if limited to eating inside. There are nice seating areas to enjoy watching TV or reading a book (the house has an extensive collection).
Irena and Richard were very warm, gracious hosts and made sure our stay was comfortable. We look forward to coming back!
We have been renting houses for vacation from Home Away for over 5 years now and this is one of my favorite houses so far. The owner was there upon our arrival and gave us a tour of the house and stated that we can call anytime during our stay if needed. The house was/is BEAUTIFUL! The pictures do not do it justice. The property was very clean and had many updates. We did not need anything. The pool area at night was so magical I felt like I was in a fairy tale. We spent every evening in the outside dinning area playing cards and board games. She had clean towels for us for the bathrooms and the pool. I can not say anymore great things about this property! The house was great and the town of Pine Bush was also great! As we were leaving the owner came by and asked if there was anything that she could change/update that would've made our stay even better. I've never had a property owner ask me that before. She was a pleasure to deal with and I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to find a relaxing getaway. Thank you Irena for a wonderful experience!
We had multiple families staying for a fantastic long week end. Lavender Hill Estate is a lovely house in a wonderful relaxing location. The kitchen was well stocked which was important to us as we did a lot of cooking. The kids loved the pool and the marshmallows around the fire pit and everybody felt right at home. Richard and Elena were really great hosts, even finding and returning a precious soft toy that was feared lost.
Lavender Hill is a wonderful place for a group. We had a get together there with a group of six people over a long weekend, and the house had everything we needed. The pool and grounds are lovely and the owners provided everything we required. Close to town and wondrous State parks, but completely private and secluded.
Such a great start to summer. A great luxurious weekend getaway. Super private. Lovely weather. Comfortable. Relaxing. We can hear the crickets and just sip our wine on the back porch. No question it's a great weekend away and no need to book a flight!
We could not have asked for a more perfect long weekend. The house and property were beautiful and Richard and Elena were wonderful hosts. The house had everything that we needed to feel right at home and it was instantly relaxing! We will absolutely be back for another visit!!!
