STILL THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5
Our 2nd stay at Rene's house was another great experience. The house was as comfortable and well-equipped as always, and days of bright clear weather meant the views off the porch were even more striking than the first time. Once again, the location was extremely convenient for everything we wanted to visit --east, west, north or south. This trip we really noticed how quickly we were able to reach our assorted destinations -- whether hiking the Escarpment Trail at North/South Lakes; catching dinner and shopping in Hudson; strolling the Poets Walk outside of Rhinebeck; exploring West Stockbridge and Chatham; taking in the spectacular views at Olana and along rural roads; or enjoying lively evenings in the heart of Great Barrington. Being so close to the Taconic Parkway and Route 23 makes it easy to catch many of the region's sites...... but still come back to relax in a quiet country setting. For my wife and me, there is no better spot to stay in Columbia County. We again highly recommend both the house and Rene's kind hospitality.

Owner's Response: You make me smile! I can not believe that you did all of those things in one visit.
I always feel blessed to live where we do and it is nice to read that someone else is able to enjoy it.
All the best to you and your wife. Rene

GREAT VALUE, LOVELY PLACE WITH A WONDERFUL OWNER

  • 5 of 5
We stayed over the Labour Day long weekend. The house is very well appointed and quiet, has zero traffic and a lovely view over farmland. It is a short drive to lots of little villages (you need a car). If you bring in supplies, there is no need to go anywhere. The owner is very friendly and helpful and we appreciated the attention to detail in the house, for example, there is an unobtrusive wheel chair accessible ramp from the drive to the front door. It wasn't a pre-requisite for us but reflects a well thought out space and the rest of the house is the same. All up a very comfortable place to stay in a very pretty location. Great value.

LOVELY HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely lovely house. Well furnished. Great kitchen. Wonderful view. Friendly neighbors (the cows in the field across the road). Close to both Great Barrington and Hudson. The only thing more lovely than the house is the owner, Rene. She helped us feel right at home.

FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
If you want a true feel of what Columbia County has to offer, this is the place to stay. The house is recently remodeled and decorated fabulously. The views that the house has right off the porch are better than the pictures are showing. It was quiet the whole time we were there with the exception of nature. Minimal traffic, maybe 2 cars the whole weekend. The beds are comfortable. This could easily be advertised as a 3 bedroom because the extra back room that has full sized laundry has a hide bed couch and is plenty big enough; just as big as the master bedroom. When we come back to this area, we will definitely try to stay here again, if it isn't booked. I suggest you get your reservations early, because once you stay here, you won't want to stay anywhere else.

WONDERFUL GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful small house for any couple looking to get "away from it all", yet an easy drive to Great Barrington or Hudson. It is extremely modern and comfortable, with great views and a quiet rural setting.

Rene is a helpful and considerate contact who is a pleasure to work with. This is a very special spot, and its location close to the Taconic Parkway and Route 23 puts guests within range of the best of Columbia, Berkshire and Dutchess Counties.

My wife and I truly enjoy visiting this area, and would highly recommend this cozy home as an excellent base for exploring the region.

In the Berkshires of Columbia County, NY, this location is a short 12 mile drive west to Hudson, NY, and the Hudson River, and 12 miles east to the Berkshires of Western MA including Great Barrington, Stockbridge and Lenox. But the best part of this location is it's privacy and bucolic setting amongst working farms, grazing alpacas, cattle and horses. Amazing views of the Catskill Mountains. The cabin is on a quiet, country road published as one of the best walking trails in Columbia County.

Antiquing, golfing, Norman Rockwell Museum, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival are between 20 minutes and an hour away.
