House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
4/21/14 BACK TO THE WATERFRONT On August 6, 2001 I wrote a story of us buying our weekend house in Saugerties. All our friends thought we were crazy to buy a vacation house 15 minutes from our house in Woodstock. It was in 1992 and Saugerties was still a town that was down on its luck. There were a lot of empty stores. Our house, only one mile from town, seemed a million miles away with the deck cantilevered over the Esopus Creek. In my story I told of happily buying antiques and chatckas from the stores in town for our house that had been built from a kit from Sears in the 30’s. Fast forward to 2014. Daisy, our stylish daughter, who had spent 15 years in LA, came home with her husband Van and five month old daughter Starla. They stayed in our cottage while they established their boutique DIG in Saugerties. After a year they bought their own house on the creek. This year Daisy and Van decided that our house needed an update. They wanted our house to be totally cool, down to the Jonathan Adler dishes that they sell in their store. With their taste and our credit card the house was totally transformed. There’s a smart TV that gets every channel plus Netflix, YouTube, Face Book and anything else you can think of. There’s a new stylish kitchen and the bathroom is ultra-luxurious with its radiant heated floor and heated towel rack. The small windows in the master bedroom were replaced with French doors to the deck. A larger window was put in the second bedroom that allows a full view up the creek. The wood floors were sanded and a high gloss finish makes them glow. continued below.....
Owner purchased this House in 1992
Why Owner chose Saugerties
The final touch to remove any signs of the old place was painting the wood ceiling white. Since we bought the house the land across the creek became the Esopus Creek Conservancy Thanks to the marvels of the internet (which didn’t exist when we bought the house in 1992) we are able to rent it out by the week when we are not using it. Brains or luck? We were thinking of buying in Phoencia, which probably would have gotten washed away during Irene. Saugerties has become one of the ten coolest towns in the U.S. I think it was destiny. We loved the water for kayaking, swimming and hearing the water as we doze off to sleep. We always loved sitting on the deck or kayaking watching the changing fall foliage
What makes this House unique

This property is located right on the water and close to town. It’s really peaceful to sit on the deck and read or eat a meal. The house itself is cozy, and well stocked in the kitchen and bathrooms. The beds are big and comfortable! Check-in is a breeze. All around a great place for a relaxing getaway.
good views, clean and modern. town is great as well
It is a nice house, well equipped, clean and comfortable.
Unfortunately we could not use the outside space, because it was raining a lot during our stay.
Perfect Location & Setting
Stayed here post Sheep & Wool to explore more of the Catskills and HRV areas. We loved the location on the creek, and it was a perfect home base. The cottage was modern, clean, and very cozy. Lots of attention to a guest's needs and comfort. We appreciated the groceries and wine, radiant heat flooring, heated towel rack, and the luxurious beds and bedding! Steve was a pleasure to work with, and fast to answer questions. Thank you!
Our stay at the home was unforgettable. The design, layout and furnishings were all beautifully done. The view was spectacular. One of the nicest experiences was our contact with the owner and his niece who did everything they could to make our stay special. First class operation, we look forward to our next trip there.
