The Hudson Hideaway is an inviting 5 Bedroom home with its own private beach in a quiet residential neighborhood. Sun yourself on our private dock or take a dip in the Hudson River to cool off. Relax at night on the back patio overlooking the river while a cozy fire blazes in the new outdoor brick fireplace and watch the millions of stars light up the night.. Cook outside on the large Weber Grill or use the indoor kitchen with newly installed GE double oven and stove top. The game room offers darts, air hockey, ping pong, pool table, poker table, and even a karaoke stage! Outdoors we have volleyball, a large trampoline, a children's play structure and a professional batting cage with ball feeder and pitching machine (No Money Required !!!) Enjoy DIREC-TV on several 42 - 56' LCD televisions with surround sound for a movie night,. This is a great home for a family reunion, a corporate retreat,or a relaxing get-a-way with friends. (ABSOLUTEY NO after prom parties will be considered, even with adult supervision). We have many amenities to make this the vacation of a lifetime, however this is not the place to consider if you are looking to have wild weekend getaways as this will not be tolerated by the town nor the homeowners.
Our home is located a short distance from many ski resorts, hiking trails and golf courses as well as many local farms and orchards where you can pick your own produce or take a hay ride. If its shopping malls you want, the Albany Crossgates Mall is just a 25 minute drive away. Want to visit the great WOODSTOCK area for the day, take a scenic 45 minute drive.

I am 52 yrs old, married for over 20 years and have three beautiful daughters. I grew up in Brooklyn NY, went to John Dewey High School and Florida Institute of Technology for training in aviation and air commerce. I am CEO of United Software Developers and my wife works with SNAP running a program that finds volunteers to help and spend time with Senior Citizens.
People ask why do I rent the house out. With the kids grown, going to college, we just do not use the home as much anymore. I now love to have other families enjoy our home as much as we do. It also helps with the 2 current college tuitions......
I have a lot of family that lives in the Tri-State area and with homes right on top of each other, I wanted a home where our very large extended family can spend many family gatherings together with room to spare. I was very fortunate to find this perfect house that is only 2 hours away from NYC. The many years of family get togethers and watching my nieces, nephews, cousins grow so close to each other is just priceless !!
I immediately fell in love with this home when I saw the 3.5 acres of flat open land was in the backyard with a private sandy beach on the Hudson River where you can swim in fresh water. It did not take long before the fire pits were built for the countless outdoor barn fires, smores and spooky stories. With so much open space there was no reason NOT to add the batting cage, volleyball, play ground, game room, karaoke stage, surround sound systems. To be able to hang out with my adult friends and family and all the kids NOT wanting to leave because they are bored has made everything we did so worth it.
I just love it when I hear the kids begging their parents to stay longer.
