About Rima Greenberg
We are a psychotherapist in private practice and a professor at NYU. We enjoy tennis and swimming at our house, hiking on the nearby Appalachian Trail, and playing old time music on guitar and fiddle.
Rima Greenberg purchased this House in 1984
Why Rima Greenberg chose Garrison
Reading or dozing in the hammock on our screened-in porch surrounded by oak, birch, and maple trees. Music of the birds, and absence of city noises. Only an hour from the city, it feels magical.
What makes this House unique
Lake, with swimming, fishing, canoe, kayak rowboat. Clay tennis court. Nearby antiquing, superb Garrison Golf Course, Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, Town Crier Cafe, El DIA museum, and more.

A True Getaway!
Fantastic home in a fantastic location and owned by fantastic people. The home is close to amenities and yet feels remote and private. Very comfortable space for sleeping and living. The lake is a cool reprieve from the occasional hot day.
Great Location - Lovely Setting
Three of us stayed here for a week and used the house as a base while we hiked the Appalachian Trail through New York. The house is centrally located between Connecticut and New Jersey and right down the road from an AT trailhead, so it was perfectly located for our hikes.
The house itself has lovely furnishings that fulfill the promise of the pictures in its description. The kitchen is well-equipped. Unlike kitchens in many other houses we have rented, this kitchen has quality utensils and even All-Clad pans. Eating areas both inside and outside on the screened porch are most pleasant. The beds were comfortable. The woodland setting is lovely.
As others have noted, be sure to follow the owner's directions to reach the house. Our Garmin GPS did not recognize some roads in this area, with the result that its guidance was between inefficient and downright wrong.
In all, we enjoyed our stay at the house and recommend it.
Superb location with all the comforts.
Comfortable home with all the amenities. Excellent hiking in the area and lots of wilderness.
Wonderful time deep in the woods!
Perfect vacation house satisfied every expectation
we loved our stay. The house is aesthetically colorful, restful and beautifully furnished, with unique artistic taste. it is a well equipped house with every convenience to make our stay comfortable. They left us a book containing best trips to take from the house as well as restaurants which proved extremely helpful. They even left us great hiking information and information about the area.
We especially enjoyed our time eating on the screened in porch and relaxing on the hammock and gliders. Nearby was the wonderful lake, conveniently equipped with chairs and boats for our use. We very much enjoyed the people we met who were congenial and welcoming
We give it a five star review and would return any time
They were wonderful guest and would be welcome
Me back at any time
Wonderful Place for your Summer escape
I just adored staying in this magical place. Everything is as it is advertised and more. I ate every single meal out on the spacious screened in porch and my cat spent all day and night out there. During the day I was camped out at Lake Celeste bringing my picnic lunch. You can even drive down from the house and park your car there. More lounge chairs provided that you can ever want, never ever crowded, boats or all kinds for use, quiet, nobody bothers you, read or just stare into middle distance. Watch birds and water fowl, swim to your hearts content. The house has every amenity you could want. Great kitchen, dishwasher, bbq, washer/dryer, bird feeders outside the living room windows and my how they like to entertain you. Cable TV, wi fi, fireplace and sofas and club chairs to curl up in with a good book. Even a ceiling fan on the screened in porch. On the few nights we had a one of those classic summer thunderstorms I sat out on the porch and just drank in nature's pyrotechnics. I have rented summer homes in Garrison for years but this was the best place ever. There are many places to visit in the area when you are there but other than going to Cold Spring to stock up on groceries, I just couldn't tear myself away for this ideal location. I was so sad when it was time to leave. All I could think of was how can I stay here year round. House was immaculate when we checked in and there was maid service available at a reasonable price so we could leave it just the way we found it. The owners were a delight and I am still in touch with them. A lovely couple. Definitely a 5 star experience.
