Wonderful Fall Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful time in this spacious home. The house is extremely clean, comfortable and inviting. There is a very large deck out back with beautiful views. Particularly during fall foliage. Very close to local wineries, the Clermont Mansion and antiquing in Red Hook and Hudson. The house provided our group with a very relaxing fall weekend get away, which is exactly what we wanted. The owner is a lovely woman who is wonderful to deal with and very accommodating. We look forward to doing this again! Thanks!!

Awesome weekend in a Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

A group of us (12 total) stayed in this cozy yet enormous home for the weekend and had a wonderful time. The interior of the house is much larger than the photos represent. Even for 12 people, the house provided ample space with three different living rooms and seven bedrooms. In addition, the view from the back porch was incredible. The property was very clean and all possible amenities were provided. We thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and have many new memories. I would recommend this house to any group of individuals looking for a place to relax in the Hudson Valley area. We look forward to coming back.
