About Bobbie Burnette

Built in the 1740's, the house has enchanted us and our friends. When digging the vegetable patch, I found Native American skin scrapers and arrow heads. There have been people living on this hill overlooking the river and flood plain for thousands of years. We have felt blessed to be here. The farm is named for the praying mantis that live here, along with the owls, coyotes, ground hogs, opossum, deer and raccoons.

Bobbie Burnette purchased this house in 2001

Why Bobbie Burnette chose Hudson

Within an easy drive of New York City and yet surrounded by true bucolic beauty - this area first drew our attention. As we spent more time here, Columbia county has unfolded with more and more wonderful connections. The lovely, unusual friends and neighbors. The towns of Hudson and Rhinebeck and all they have to offer. Art, unique stores, antiques, a high standard of restaurant foods and a few great wine stores. Then there's the outdoor living that is spectacular ... kayaking on the Hudson, horse back riding, cycling, fishing and of course swimming.

What makes this house unique

The house lends it's self to the season so perfectly. A roaring fireplace in the living room to sit by for screening nights. 'Formal-ish' dining room for the dinner parties. A large claw foot tub to soak in, before friends arrive. A library/den for games or peaceful reading. There is a large outdoor porch for dinners and parties. You will enjoy the great swimming spots on the creek (the Taconic) that runs through the property, and the woods and fields to explore on the 70 acres.

Lovely weekend

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful setting and comfortable house! The gardens are beautiful and the daily gardener adds to the sense that you're being well cared for. There's wilder land to explore as well--we found the creek (which is a bit of a challenge) but didn't take advantage of it for a swim. The house is comfortable and the kitchen is great--excellent porch to enjoy. We took a trip to Olana which was about as much additional activity as we needed--it's definitely worth the effort.

Beautiful and Easeful
We rented this beautiful house with its charming grounds for 5 days in March. We had a wonderful time exploring the large property in the afternoon sun - fields, forest and creek. The house is very inviting, pleasant and spacious. The kitchen is well appointed, fun to cook in and lovely to be in. It was wonderful to watch the sun come up through the big kitchen window while sipping coffee. The fenced in area around the house was a safe and perfect paradise for our dog. Clearly the house and the property are well loved by the owner, who was kind and welcoming. This is a gem of a place.

Wonderful, Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with several other couples for the weekend and had a wonderful time. The house is exactly as described, very warm and inviting. The owner is very friendly, helpful and responded quickly to emails. The kitchen was well stocked and included everything we could have asked for. The bedrooms were all comfortable and each room has great light and great views. There is plenty of space for a large group to stretch out without feeling crowded. We also loved how dog friendly the house is! Our pup enjoyed wandering around outside in the large fenced-in grounds and we very much enjoyed the peace of mind in knowing she was safe.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
The house was very comfortable, clean and pretty with great views and privacy. The owner renovated this old farm house and it's surrounding property in a rather elegant way. The kitchen is large and well stocked -- we enjoyed cooking meals together there from ingredients bought at a local farm. The house was conveniently located just a few minutes off the main highway. The owner was very nice and helpful. The Hudson river is a short drive away. The large porch on the back of the house is a lovely sunny place to spend an afternoon reading or an evening eating dinner.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5
My fiancé and I rented this house for a week earlier this fall. What an amazing place!! The setting is really beautiful and relaxing and the house offers some great old world charm. The grounds are gorgeous; combined with the outdoor porch area that overlooks the back yard and fountain, the property is uniquely suited for entertaining. The property owner was great and really made us feel comfortable and welcome. A fantastic experience; we can’t wait to go back.

along with some of family members rented this house for a week. The setting is really beautiful, the house
