About The Owner

I am an Interior Designer, originally from the Midwest and Upstate New York. My husband, Ross, grew up in the cottage, he is now a fine artist and painting professor.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1994

Why The Owner chose Saugerties

This property is my husband's childhood home. His parents rented, then purchased the cottage from a local landowner in the mushroom business. The house is filled with warm memories as well as examples of Ross's early paintings. He was and is strongly influenced by the beaurtiful Hudson Valley light!

What makes this cottage unique

The quiet setting is truly enchanting. I will never forget the first time I drove up the hill and saw the house and stone chimney surrounded by cedar trees. It is a special place!!

Lovely Cabin in Saugerties

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage over the holidays in December. The cottage is clean, well-kept, and bigger than we had expected it to be, but quite cozy with the fireplace in the living room. We had a fire going both evenings we were there - Maureen had firewood ready for us and we also stopped at Stewart's in Saugerties to pick up additional wood. The kitchen was easy to use and was well-stocked with dishes, wineglasses, utensils, pots and pans and coffeemaker, and it was enjoyable to have so much space to relax and cook. Maureen was prompt and easy to communicate with. The cottage was especially quiet, which we greatly enjoyed. We hope to come back again!

Great stay at a delightful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 nights at the cottage as we were in town for a horse show. The cottage is only about 7 mins from the showgrounds, so it was very convenient. Maureen was there to meet me, and show me around. She made me feel very welcome. The home is very well-kept and clean, and was actually a bit larger than I had expected. Maureen was also great about getting back to me quickly with any questions that I had. The only suggestion for improvement would be to get some shades or curtains for the bedrooms windows. All in all, it was a wonderful stay, and I'd definitely rent it again!

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This cottage provided the ideal location while our daughter participated in the HITS horse show. We enjoyed the tranquility and privacy of Maureen's property for two weeks and fell in love with it more each day. The listing is accurate in every way, except the cottage is actually a little larger that depicted. It is very clean and beautifully kept. It is so quiet and the ideal place to relax. Maureen was more than helpful and I would happily recommend this property. Saugerties and the surrounding towns are pretty and full of wonderful restaurants, whether more up-scale cuisine (The Red Onion, Miss Lucy's), or the smaller cafes. Woodstock, home of the (in)famous music festival is a ten-minute drive and is a step back to a unique time. I am grateful that Maureen's cottage was available during the dates we required. Five stars without hesitation!!

Great Getaway Place

  • 5 of 5

We rented this great cottage while attending a horse show at HITs. The house is much larger than expected and really close and easy to get to the show grounds (less than 10 minutes). The location is very private yet close to shops and restaurants. The owner was very helpful and great to deal with. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a peaceful tranquil place to relax and feel at home. Hope to be back soon!
