Accommodations: Our contemporary abode is a perfect home away from home. Easily accommodating four to six people, the open floor plan is cozy and inviting. Families are welcome (no pets please). We have three bedrooms and two full baths, a modern chefs kitchen (and outdoor gas grill), a screened-in back porch with picnic table, and a fireplace where you can warm your bones after a long day. For your convenience, we have an easily accessible washer and dryer as well as a TV and DVD player. Our well-stocked bookcase includes a section dedicated to the historic Hudson Valley. Two adult bikes and a child’s bike are also available for your use.
Gardening: We also offer a wonderful environment to get in touch with your inner gardener. Whether you want to mulch, weed, rake, water or all of the above, you are welcome to make use of our many flower beds. We will provide the knee pads, trowels, etc. Let us know what you want to do, and we will help.
Kicking Back: If you simply want to get away from it all and enjoy the nature, the area offers excellent birdwatching, hiking, apple picking, biking, and horseback riding minutes from your front door. You can also kick back on our private landscaped three acre property and read a great book, or play a rousing game of Bocce on our full size court.

About Paul English
Hi, my name is Paul English and my family and I own this wonderful property. We live in Brooklyn and felt it was very important that we had a place to go to getaway from the city and spend time in nature. We have two little boys and we wanted them to have the opportunity to be able to play in the woods, to have a large yard to play in, to keep a garden and to observe the natural world. We love our trips to this beautiful spot in the Hudson Valley and welcome you to come and enjoy it as well.
