About The Owner

We are university professors who love to travel (and often end up staying in houses that we find on VRBO owners!).

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Putnam Valley

Hudson Valley, with its many lakes and points of access to the Hudson River, is an amazingly beautiful region. A place of our own in this area, with its summer arts and away from the city quiet, but just an hour away from our apartment - who could resist!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Shakespeare at Boscobel, dining at Cold Spring or at Blue Hill, lazing at the pool, playing ball with the kids, pulling the boat out to the center of the pond with a book, hiking at Fahnestock, so much to do!

Our Family

This place is perfect for any family or friends wishing to spend some quality time together. The house is very comfortable. The surrounding property is gorgeous. The owners are very helpful and made sure everything was just as described. We liked it so much, we booked a second stay. Restaurants and supermarkets are 20 to 35 minutes away. Many places to visit, but we spent most of our time enjoying the relaxation and immediate surroundings. If you book this place, you won't be disappointed.

Family Fun

We had a great time staying at this house. Although it was a cold rainy week, my family played games in the 3 season porch, we had a fire in the fireplace and the one nice day, we had a fire in the outdoor pit and made smores. What a relaxing, wonderful week. Thank you for opening your home to our family.
