Tony and I purchased Ambleside, the propertys name in 2005 and have restored it back to its full grandure. It was originally built in 1931 as a 12 acre horse farm and still has the stables with the carriage house apartment upstairs. We had to completely renovate it as it was in total despair and now we have a fantastic place where our guests can come for a wonderful getaway.
Angelo Bruno purchased this apartment in 2005
We were very lucky to acquire Ambleside and it truely was a labor of love to bring it back. Thankfully, almost all of the original details were in tact and being in the design business we new just what to do.
Relax, enjoy, tour the area, it is filled with things to do or stay in the loft, close the door and completely get away from it all!

Nice decor. Clean. Comfortable. Quite. Nice location. Had working wifi that was way to use. TV was easy to operate. Owner was helpful with local information. Beautiful yard.
My love and I went to the carriage house to celebrate his birthday away from the hustle of our city lives. Enterprise was able to pick us up so that we could rent a vehicle. After purchasing some groceries, we made this place our home for 5 days. It was so relaxing and beautifully kept that on our first full day there we did absolutely nothing. Everything we needed was readily available. The quiet does not take long to get used to; even the sound of the trains in the far distance did not disturb our peace. Angelo could not be more warm and welcoming. He provided helpful information upon our arrival and we used his suggestions to plan the rest of our stay. The walk through the neighborhood was poetic and we were greeted kindly by everyone we met. It almost felt as if we were in a southern town instead of upstate NY. By the time we left, it felt as if we were leaving a new friend. We will be back as this will become our private escape when we need to decompress.
This property was exactly as presented on your website. Actually, the place was much bigger in person that it appeared in the pictures on line. It was the perfect place for a getaway for two. We used it as our launching pad for site-seeing in the Hudson River Valley.
Nearby restaurants were really good. Angelo and Anthony couldn't have been nicer. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay.
It is hard to say how much the Kingston Carriage House Loft exceeded our expectations. It's not obvious, for example, that while carriage house is close to everything in Kingston ("five to ten minutes" is the standard) it is perched on the edge of a cuesta with mountains in the distance and fields filled with horses. Being at the end of the road means no traffic noise, and the loft itself is far enough from the main house that you enjoy a sense of privacy and cosiness. The apartment itself is a spacious long room punctuated by the entry stair and dining/kitchen area. The ceiling is loft-like but high enough to make the room feel airy, and the windows let in good light in the morning and evening. The kitchen has everything to entertain a small group, but Kingston's many good eating places make this a non-necessity. Angelo, the host, was the BEST. He gave us a good introduction and some advice for the stay. He was available but not otherwise paying attention to us. We felt easy in coming and going. This is a super value for anyone wanting to enjoy this part of the Hudson while, at the same time, enjoying an easy commute or train-ride to New York City.
What a great place! Quiet, easy, beautiful--a real find. Wish we'd known about this wonderful place during the last four years our son was in college--we'd stayed here every time!
The carriage house was a great place to spend our 5 day get away to exploring the Hudson River Valley. The apartment was a warm, spotlessly clean, well appointed space to relax and also use as a home base. We lingered in the AM and relaxed on the patio in the evening enjoying the beautiful outdoor space. Close proximity to exploring the Catskills or doing a walking tour of historic Kingston. Angelo and Tony have done a wonderful job restoring the property. Be sure to ask them for suggestions for dining...they are right on with great places to enjoy an evening meal or drinks and apps. At their suggestion we enjoyed Armadillo, Boitsons, and Tappen House. Thanks Angelo and Tony for sharing this lovely property!
