Charming, picturesque, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
We spent the week-end with our adult daughter at Mr. and Mrs. Gould's lovely country estate. The guest cottage was so charming, with interesting artifacts, beautiful paintings, and nice furnishings. The hardwood floors are spectacular, and the white walls with contrasting trim are so attractive. While the kitchen is small, everything you need is there, even a cheese grater! There is a tv room with doors to close, which I appreciated as my daughter stays up later than I do! I never heard a thing! The setting is beautiful, off a dirt road, but close to Old Chatham and many other attractions. If you like to bicycle, there are so many quiet country roads to explore with beautiful views. Melinda Gould is a joy to work with and answered my emails quickly. I hope to meet her the next time we rent this very special property. Thanks so much for a wonderful week-end!

Loved this sweet cottage in the country

  • 5 of 5
It was perfect as a weekend getaway. I'd recommend this property and the area it is in if you're looking for a taste of upscale country living. The sweet cottage was clean and neat as a pin. The decor was tasteful and relaxing. The location was quiet that we slept soundly. The beds were comfortable and plush as in a luxury hotel. The kitchen was well appointed. We took walks up the road and found several waterfalls, woods and an old graveyard. We walked trails in a nature preserve a short drive away and saw only one other hiker. We took short drives and discovered a couple of farm stands close by that had freshly picked organic produce, home-baked pastries and sweets (including gluten-free ones) and even hand-pulled beeswax candles for gifts. We also found Kinderhook Farms, where we bought frozen chicken, beef and lamb - they were the best-tasting fowl and meats I've had in a long time. Next time we'll stay at least a week for there are several nice restaurants to try out, Tanglewood is nearby and we want to explore pretty New England towns nearby. And we'll travel light for it had a nice washing machine and a dryer! The owner could not be more helpful to us when we had questions about the area.

Perfect Cottage Retreat Not Far From NYC

  • 5 of 5
My family and I loved relaxing at this charming cottage retreat not far from NYC. The cottage is cozy with tons of old world charm and modern amenities. We enjoyed meandering walks on the beautiful property to see deer, birds and other wildlife. The pond on the property provided hours of enjoyment for our two young children. The town and surrounding area are a treasure trove of fine restaurants, eateries, shops and farms. If you are a foodie who loves fresh organic foods and holistic eating, this is the place for you. We loved our visits to the alpaca farm and Old Chatham Sheepherding Co. There is a thriving arts scene that we didn't experience while we were there our first time, but do hope to explore on future visits. Overall our visit was superb--we will undoubtedly go back! In fact, we're already booked for next month. You won't regret your decision. Go and enjoy!

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5
Our party of 4 adults stayed 2 nights in mid-October and had a wonderful time. Beautiful property with a well-equipped cottage that was perfectly clean and comfortable. We cooked dinner one night and found all the equipment we needed in the kitchen and on the nearby patio, which had both charcoal and gas grills available. Downstairs living space was nicely furnished with couch, two easy chairs, large dining table and chairs; upstairs two bedrooms provided restful sleep on good beds (1Q, 1F). Also downstairs was a separate media room with couch; bathroom with stand-up shower was upstairs. Whole cottage was nicely decorated and appeared to be in excellent repair. Owner was very helpful, even finding and returning a computer cord we left behind. The cottage was our home base for exploring the area, which included visits to the homes of Edna St. Vincent Millay and Edith Wharton and also the Hancock Shaker Village, all very interesting. Had a great lunch at the diner in Hudson run by "Grazin' Angus Acres." Would definitely recommend Melinda's cheerful cottage to others visiting this lovely area.

Beautiful, quiet, comfortable and clean!

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect haven for a quiet get-away! Set in the country on a large lot complete with a pond, the location is perfect for exploring the many nearby small towns and antique shops. Close to good skiing in the winter, gorgeous country roads for leaf-peepers in the fall and lots of local history, artist studios, various arts events and interesting farms to visit year round.

The cottage was very comfortable, well-maintained and well stocked for all our needs. The queen bed was very comfy - a priority to us. We were in the area to celebrate my father's 90th birthday so we did not spend much time at the cottage but enjoyed our private haven every night and each morning. All details were appreciated... hair dryer, soft towels, filtered water, WiFi, fresh herbs and flowers upon our arrival.

The owners were easy to work and the photos are very accurate. My brother (the host of our father's 90th) lives in the area and, for the event, our family rented three homes in the area. This one was the smallest, but the nicest, most spacious and the most comfortable. We highly recommend this property.

In the area, I recommend a visit to my brother's Alpaca farm & shop, Spruce Ridge Farm. It is beautiful, fun for the family and you will find the softest sweaters, socks, coats and yarn in the shop. Search on Spruce Ridge Farm for their website and more information.

A little slice of paradise

This house is charming in every way. Soothing colors, comfortable beds, quiet and calm. Precisely the respite from the heat and noise of the city my family had been craving.
