Tony and I purchased Ambleside, the propertys name in 2005 and have restored it back to its full grandure. It was originally built in 1931 as a 12 acre horse farm and still has the stables with the carriage house apartment upstairs. We had to completely renovate it as it was in total despair and now we have a fantastic place where our guests can come for a wonderful getaway.
Angelo Bruno purchased this apartment in 2005
We were very lucky to acquire Ambleside and it truely was a labor of love to bring it back. Thankfully, almost all of the original details were in tact and being in the design business we new just what to do.
Relax, enjoy, tour the area, it is filled with things to do or stay in the loft, close the door and completely get away from it all!

What a great place! Quiet, easy, beautiful--a real find. Wish we'd known about this wonderful place during the last four years our son was in college--we'd stayed here every time!
The carriage house was a great place to spend our 5 day get away to exploring the Hudson River Valley. The apartment was a warm, spotlessly clean, well appointed space to relax and also use as a home base. We lingered in the AM and relaxed on the patio in the evening enjoying the beautiful outdoor space. Close proximity to exploring the Catskills or doing a walking tour of historic Kingston. Angelo and Tony have done a wonderful job restoring the property. Be sure to ask them for suggestions for dining...they are right on with great places to enjoy an evening meal or drinks and apps. At their suggestion we enjoyed Armadillo, Boitsons, and Tappen House. Thanks Angelo and Tony for sharing this lovely property!
My mom and I booked this beautiful carriage house for 3 nights to visit the NY Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck. We had the top floor unit, has a spacious open plan layout, with two beds (one in a bedroom area, and a single in the living room). The kitchen is large and has every modern convenience, including the incredibly necessary coffee maker and coffee. The carriage house is at the back of the property across the lawn from the owners' home, who greeted us warmly on Thursday and showed us around. We explored Kingston, took a riverboat cruise on the Hudson, took a short driver over the river to Rhinebeck for the festival, and visited the nearby Vanderbilt Mansion. There are great restaurants in the area--we took the short drive over to Woodstock for dinner one evening--and there are so many vegan options. The house was comfortable, modern, very clean, and close to interesting things to see and do. I would go back in a heartbeat.
Although we weren't traveling from very far away (NEPA), I had my hopes up for a major change of scenery for the weekend. As we were driving through the neighborhood to get to the Carriage House, I was a little disappointed, thinking, "Well, this looks just like home." Upon arrival at the house though, you are whisked away. The stunning property sits at the end of a dead-end road and is nestled among well maintained yards and beautiful old trees.
We were greeted by Angelo, who was keen to our arrival time. He is welcoming, energetic, and interesting to talk to. We stayed in the loft apartment, which is on the second floor of the Carriage House. It is bright, airy, and artfully and comfortably appointed. Full kitchen, nice dining table, big leather couch, space to spread out!
We were particularly drawn to the privacy of this rental. You are removed from the main house, and are the only guests on the property. This scenario is fairly one-of-a-kind, in my considerable experience. The only drawback for me was that the bed was hard. Rest was not particularly restful. However, we are accustomed to a soft king bed.
If you're planning a weekend away with someone, they will be impressed by your "find" of this property. We look forward to using it as our home base next time we go exploring the Hudson Valley. Thank you, Angelo!
We thought the loft was amazing! Full of charm, it was filled with light and beautifully decorated. The thoughtful use of space makes it feel much larger the photos portray, and the loft was a quiet, relaxing place to come “home” to after a day of visiting family and taking in the sights of the surrounding area. Thanks, Angelo, for the tour and for sharing this unique structure’s history with us. We would love to stay at the carriage house again on our next trip to the Hudson Valley.
The loft apartment being our first home away experience was wonderful! This quiet location is just beautiful and very calming but still very convenient. Angelo's keen insight on design and decor makes the carriage house feel very special. It is so clean and inviting that you immediately feel comfortable. The bowl of NY state apples on the table were YUMMY! Thank you so much for all you did to make our stay here feel so special. We enjoyed the Hudson Valley area, especially our bike ride over the Hudson River and hope to return again soon.
