Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Joan,

Thanks you for making your home our home for an extended weekend. You have no idea what an escape to a small river town means to four exhausted city girls. Being able to boat, hike, swim and cook is exactly what we'd dreamed of doing this Labor Day weekend. This is the type of artistic retreat we one day dream of owning. Thanks for your hospitality.

My husband & I both grew up in the midwest- he by a lake & me on a farm but we are both artists and professors and work in Manhattan- this property made it possible for us to have it all.

Joan Harmon purchased this house in 2000

The proximity to the cultural center of NYC with a State Park trail along the Hudson and beachfront where we can swim and canoe & kayak- this is unique and very special. The addition of a ferry service to the Metro North makes country/city living a dream.

The majestic views of the Hudson and the sound of the water as you sleep at night and the chance to sit and walk by the river made me fall in love- its all about the magic of the river.

REFUGEE AND RELAXATION PLUS BUSY METROPOLITAN LIFE

  • 4 of 5
Tiny & cute little house for a real family vacation. In the morning you wake up with sunshine on your face and a waterside view. Breakfast on your own terrace and, if you want to, a short walk downstairs to your private small "beach" at the Hudson River. It was a relaxed, intimate and cosy stay at your house... AND an absolute opposite side to our visits in NYC - such a great city, burning life, attractions and an uncountable mass of impressions. After a day in NYC it was the best "coming-down-moment", arriving in your home again. We want to thank you for your warm welcome and support (and we don't forget the little "garden" across the streets, where we could get tomatoes, spinach, herbs etc. for free. Our children (10 and 15) loved the jacuzzi and rowing the boat and the swimming in the Hudson River.

We hope to get the chance coming back again

Greetings from Germany (Düsseldorf) and
ENJOY LIFE AS IT WOULD BE THE ONLY ONE

Roger, Petra, Luca-Manuel & Alina

ECLECTIC BOHEMIA ON THE MAGNIFICENT HUDSON

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Joan and Jims beautiful river house. Having driven down from Montreal it was great to have the personal touch of Joan greeting us and showing us around. A couple with a 17 month year old toddler, we chose to base ourselves here to explore Manhattan as we thought hotels and rental apartments in the city wouldnt suit our needs, and our decision was a good one. The journey into Grand Centre by ferry and train was straight forward and felt like an adventure, and on days off the house was perfect for relaxing in. We loved the deck with its superlative views of the Hudson, the trails down the Garden to the shore and beach house, and the hot tub, which soothed our city-weary limbs and spirits! There is also a lovely trail at the end of the street for walks. The house is comfort able and beautifully furnished with a 4 poster bed in the main bedroom. We loved the art works around the house and the rich and varied book collection. The street is also quite quirky and interesting. All in all we loved this place and have already recommended it to friends and family.

AMAZING CITY RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I spent a long weekend at this house to celebrate our anniversary. We could not have asked for a better location and house! The house was spacious, clean, and functional with many great surprises including a hot tub, fabulous views, a small river shack, and a state park within walking distance. We even found great local restaurants only a couple minutes away! We only wish the weather was warmer so that we could have fully enjoyed the outside activities. We cannot wait to return during the summer months. Thank you Joan for sharing your wonderful house with us!

VERY RELAXING, LOVELY VIEW

  • 4 of 5
It was dark when we arrived so we didn't fully appreciate the lovely view until the next morning. There are steps leading down to the water's edge where we enjoyed hot chocolate around a fire one evening. The hot tub was so relaxing and there's a great selection of books for perusing. We enjoyed the shops and restaurants in the nearby Nyack area and an Old World Market where we picked up groceries and yummy desserts. Great bicycle trail nearby; one caveat however. Although there are bicycles available for guest use, they have skinny tires and are suitable for road use only. Don't take them on the trail, bring your own. Hyde Park-on-Hudson not far away made a wonderful day trip. Would definitely stay again if we were in the area.

NICE VIEW WITH SURPRISES

  • 2 of 5
We will begin with the positive, the vies of the Hudson, from the upstairs bedrooms in particular, are wonderful. There were a few surprises however that we felt we should share with others considering a peaceful getaway.

The home on a residential street with houses very close to one another. While the view of the hudson was lovely from the back deck, we did not really enjoy sitting out there due to the noise coming from the surrounding active families who own the homes in very close proximity. The other decks were close enough to hear quiet speaking voices no less boisterous children. There was also a fair amount of debris in the adjoining yards that detracted from the ambiance of the deck view.

The other surprise was that we had not rented the entire house. We were told upon arrival that we should leave the outside front door unlocked to allow access to a "caretaker" that lived in the front portion of the house. This became an issue at 1AM both nights we were there when the other tenant came home and played loud music with the bass reverberating throughout the house resulting in waking all of us up.

We took awhile to write this review as we have never given a mixed review before, but really love HomeAway and depend heavily on reviews of others.Our disappointment was in that we expected to be the only occupants of the home and we hoped the home was situated in a more tranquil setting. If these surprises wouldn't be a bother, the view of the Hudson from inside the house was in fact outstanding and the beds were clean and very comfortable. We just want people to get the full picture before spending precious vacation time in a place that does not fulfill their needs.

Owner's Response: The main attractions of our property which I hope are represented well on our site are the beachfront patio with river access which is right by the water and very private, the hot tub overlooking the Hudson, the beautiful State Park trail at the end of our quiet street and the close proximity to New York City. We are located in a tiny village and we do have neighbors quite close but there is always a place that is quiet and private on the property- it might just take a walk down to the beach to find it. Our caretaker is a very quiet person whom we have never heard at night (and we stay here often) nor has anyone else who has stayed here reported any noise at night.

MAGICAL RIVER HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing place! My husband and I came here for a weekend get-away from the city’s hustle and bustle and left two days later feeling like we’d been gone a week. Stock up on groceries and wine and never leave! Go hiking on the amazing trails. Take in the views. Lie in bed and enjoy the breeze coming through the windows while you imagine you are a big ship sailing down the Hudson. Then go down the hill to the cabana, go for a swim, and relax by the river. This house is located in a tiny artists’ community that feels like a secret place. You drive through the quarry, and just as you start to wonder if this can be right, a road of houses magically appears and you’re home. Can’t recommend this place enough! Thanks, for sharing your house with us.
