Hudson Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Designers own completely renovated year-round getaway cottage on a quiet country road. The sun filled one-level, 2 bedroom, 2 full bath, house is situated on over 3 acres of open fields which provide sublime vistas of the surrounding protected farmland and forest. Enjoy the amazing sunsets as you relax on the large deck overlooking a meadow and meandering creek. In the warmer months, cook dinner on the charcoal BBQ grill and dine alfresco under the wisteria-covered pergola. In the winter, sit by the fireplace in the great room and relax from a day of fun in the snow. As evening approaches, drive 8 minutes to the thriving town of Hudson, pick up your houseguests at the Amtrak station, and head out for a dinner at one of many wonderful restaurants.

The great room, with cedar walls and vaulted ceiling, has 12 large windows and a glass door that opens out to the deck. In the summer/spring with all the windows open wide, and screens in place, the room becomes an elegant screened-in porch. This room also serves as the dining area, with a large, round slate table that easily sits 6 to 8. The daybed, situated in a corner of windows, easily converts to a twin bed.

One who loves to cook created the kitchen. It contains a stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher, a Viking gas range and range-hood, stainless steel shelves and an antique butcher block island. A coffee maker, toaster, and all utensils and cookware necessary to cook a gourmet meal are provided. There is dishware and silverware service for 10. In the warmer months, four superb farm stands are within a 5-minute drive.

In the living room, there is a full size couch, a large coffee table, and two matching chairs. There is an antique Japanese tansu that holds board games and additional storage.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, bedside tables and reading lights, a full hanging closet and antique Japanese tansu for clothing storage. A glass door leads out to the back deck. The contemporary en suite master bath has limestone floors and a large soaking tub.

The guest bedroom has a twin trundle bed (which converts to either two twins or a queen), a full hanging closet for clothes, and is just around the corner from the full guest bath in the hall.

The deck has a table with four chairs, two Adirondack chairs with footrests and two wood chaises with cushions.

The house is 2 hours from NYC, 10 minutes from the Taconic Parkway.

The Amtrak train trip from New York’s Penn Station to Hudson is exactly 2 hours.

An outstanding place to stay close to Hudson NY!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cottage just south of Hudson NY was immaculately clean and very comfortable. It is surrounded by farms (and farm stands) and is a quiet and comfortable retreat as you are exploring the magnificent Hudson River Valley. We travelled as far south as The Bronx--to New York Botanical Garden and Wave Hill and as far north as Albany to visit Albany Institute of Art and Schuyler Mansion. We spent a memorable day in Hyde Park, paying our respects to FDR and Eleanor as well as the Culinary Institute of America. We visited the closest site to the house--Olana, the incredible home and studio of Frederic Edwin Church, and the home of his teacher Thomas Cole across the river at Catskill NY. Hudson NY is a most pleasant place to walk, shop and window shop, and dine and is just a ten minute drive from the cottage. The kitchen is quite impressive and is a special bonus for those who enjoy eating "at home" while on holiday. I would highly recommend it for anyone traveling to the Hudson River Valley!

Beautiful views and charming design!

  • 5 of 5

A hip, lovely getaway less than 10 mins from Hudson. The views are stunning, and we spent lots of time grilling on the back deck. Beautifully updated house that's a mixture of contemporary interior architecture, mid-century modern furniture, antiques, and a ton of eclectic artwork. Roadside farmers markets with fresh strawberries and spinach. Great books, well-stocked kitchen, and a Nest thermostat! (Note for future renters: start laundry the night before you leave as it takes a while and needs to be folded before checkout). Would love to stay here again with friends!

Beautiful, peaceful and immaculate

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2-year-old daughter and, while other reviewers have commented on how beautifully decorated, peaceful and well-situated the house is (all very true), it also has some nice features for families. The bedrooms are set far enough away from the great room that grownups can stay up and watch a movie after the kids go to bed. And the master bath means you won't wake up your kids by sneaking to the bathroom in the middle of the night! All important considerations! Plus a good supply of children's books, toys and games. Overall, a wonderful experience and we would love to come back.

Perfect Home for a Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue. I have had the joy of staying at this cottage twice in 2012, once in April and again in October. The property is in a tranquil, peaceful location and yet less than a 10 minute drive to downtown Hudson. The home is modern, airy, and well-maintained. I love to cook, and the kitchen here is well-stocked and was fun to cook in. The back deck is spacious and comfortable, and although we didn't use the grill, it would've been the perfect spot for a BBQ. Arne was a pleasure to speak with and was very helpful throughout planning. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a getaway from NYC, with the comforts of a modern home. Thanks Arne, for everything!
