Why Richard J. Hausner Interests chose Germantown

The beauty of the valley speaks for itself. Located 100 miles north of NYC, Columbia County is a slowed pace country wonder with surprising upsides: tremendous historic significance, stimulating cultural events, quality restaurants, quaint shopping, serious antiquing, abundant outdoor activities and sunsets matched by no other.

What makes this chalet unique

It's all about the view! The moment you step onto the ridge you will be taken away by the mountains and the mighty Hudson River. This multi-county area is steeped in historic properties and is the heart and soul of the Hudson River School of Painting. Artists Thomas Cole and Fredric Church built their estates a stone's throw up the river. Roosevelts, Vanderbilts and Astors have long called this valley their home.

Although there are ample gently rolling trails, hiiking around the entire 23 acres can be challenging as the steep slopes of the river and abutting kill jet up to a high ridge. This was once a Native American campground overlooking these bodies of water. Arrowheads and artifacts have been found here for years. The beauty is not lost on the abundant wildlife that feeds here. Wild turkeys, deer, ducks, geese and bald eagles are common visitors. It's a wonderful place to explore.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is amazing! We spent the morning at the farmers market and then went back to the house and made a big brunch! We hiked around the property and then took a swim... Now we're going to barbeque and eat by the pool. Tomorrow were going apple picking :-) not a bad weekend!

A Little Disappointed

  • 4 of 5
Marie and I returned to the cottage after last year's wonderful experience. We loved our stay and especially enjoyed watching movies on the large drop down theater screen in the bedroom. We were crestfallen to see that it had been replaced with a small flat screen tv! Nevertheless we still enjoyed ourselves, but wish we would have known about this replacement before renting.

Wonderful weekend- exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing weekend at the cottage. The property is even more stunning in person than it is in the pictures and it's hard not to feel relaxed upon arrival. The views of the Hudson and surrounding woods are expansive and the sunsets are as pretty as advertised.

The owners clearly spared no expense in building the property- it's incredibly cozy with high-end features that provide the perks of a luxury hotel with the comforts and space that a home affords. My husband and I were continually surprised, as well, by the attention to detail. Every time we started to say "It would be great if they had a...", we found that item or amenity. This includes many items for children (we were traveling with a toddler and a newborn) like a sheet and comforter set for the pack n play, plastic utensils, a booster seat, and even a "Cottage at Sunset" robe in toddler size to match the adult robes. Everything was clearly and charmingly labeled (in handwritten chalkboard signs) and the book of suggested activities and instructions was comprehensive and easy to follow. We took advantage of many of these suggestions, including Otto Market for groceries, Hudson for the Saturday farmer's market, Griegg's Farm for produce picking, and a couple others.

Unlike rentals we've used in the past that are slightly unwelcoming with "please don't touch" signs and other messages that make it clear they don't want you to feel too at home, the owners manage to send across the opposite message, encouraging guests to explore the home decorations and furnishings, to use as much or all of the firewood and animal feed provided, to explore the property and use plastic dishware/wineglasses for picnics outside or by the pool. This goes a long way to making guests feel like they are not just borrowing a place for a short stay but instead living there for a period of time. Clearly they have a knack for hospitality- we've already booked our next stay at the cottage for the fall. The only thing we could've asked for was an additional bedroom so we could continue to use the property as the kids grow and require more space, but for now the cottage still felt more than spacious enough to accommodate two adults and two small kids.

Just as beautiful in winter!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented this home quite a few times but have never been able to stay in winter. I'm so glad that we did! We were initially worried about a snow storm but that was no issue for the wonderful caretaker. Muriel reassured us the 10+ inches of snow would be removed and it was - all by the early afternoon. We were able to get to the home with no problem. Even the balcony was shoveled so we could enjoy it and the wonderful view it offers (yes, even in the cold with a hot cocoa!). The indoor pool and hot tub surrounded by the snow was so pretty and relaxing. We watched the icebreakers on the Hudson River which was completely frozen. And we actually just relaxed with a good book by the fire or watched a good film lying in bed (imagine that!). There are plenty of good restaurants within 10 minutes or so but we stayed in and cooked a great meal as it's easy to work in a kitchen which has everything needed and everything is clean and in good working order. We have throughly enjoyed this home in other seasons, but watching the sunset over the frozen Hudson river and being there in winter (after a snowstorm!) was really something special. Thank you for sharing this wonderful spot in our beautiful Hudson Valley!

Magnificent house & stunning views

Magnificent house & stunning views
  • 5 of 5
From the second we arrived we were in awe of this amazing property. We were impressed with everything especially the small, thoughtful details.
I personally loved all of the well placed p-touch labels in the kitchen. It made it easy for a guest to find anything we needed. The surprise snack tray & complimentary bottle of wine were a great touch. We loved looking throughout the house at the photos of The Cottage in different seasons.
The house is magnificent, views are stunning and we can't wait to return for another fabulous getaway. It was awesome to watch the boats sail on The Hudson, bald eagles soar so close we could see their eyeballs and not to mention to sit and relax in the hot tub and in front of the fireplace. Heck, I even loved doing laundry in the ruby red washer and dryer!
I will definitely be making plans to return with more of my family and friends and take them to my new favorite place!

The best vacation my family has ever had.

  • 5 of 5
The Cottage At Sunset is truly an amazing getaway experience. The home can serve as an intimate getaway or in my case the perfect family vacation. The grounds are amazing and expansive with amazing trails and views of the Hudson. They have thought of everything in this home, from walking sticks and a red wagon for the kids to top of the line AV systems Viking kitchen and even cracked corn to leave outside your window to encourage deer and wild turkeys to great you in the morning. Just a short trip to Rhineback & Hudson, there is plenty to do in the area, including in the many small towns along the way. The local guide will help point you in the right direction to find farmers markets, eateries and entertainment. LAst the indoor pool & spa is the perfect way to end your day after watching the sun from your balcony. I can'y wait to return to Hudson Valley.
