About Laurie Willow

I am a builder and Realtor and a grandmother. I love the Shawangunk RIdge, and often ride my horse Ruby on the miles of beautiful trails there. I like to canoe in the Wallkill River, which abuts the property.

Laurie Willow purchased this house in 2008

Why Laurie Willow chose Hudson Valley

The house is next door (with privacy and distance) from the house I live in. It is close enough to service, and far away enough to give guests privacy.

Had my wedding here and it couldn't have been more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and comfortable in every detail, the property is the definition of tranquility and the setting was ideal for a rustic outdoor wedding, there is literally a perfect level location for a tent that fits 80 guests with a built in dance floor (concrete foundation). The morning of the wedding I enjoyed my coffee in absolute peacefulness on the deck as the morning mist rose off the river and later that day my guests all raved about the beautiful setting (including the white "cranes" that happened to fly by during the ceremony), the day after the wedding we enjoyed fishing, swimming and kayaking with my flower girls and our families, when we had the house to ourselves we couldn't feel more at home. The master bedroom was a great spot for me "the bride" to get ready with my girls and on the ground floor was a cool room for the groom to settle his nerves. The location was easy to find on gps and the road that ends at the river was large enough parking for all of our guests. Hope to rent it for my 1 year anniversary! Maybe we will throw another party, the first one was so much fun!

And seriously, the owner Laurie, was the best!

Cozy and comfortable home - Wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

My family and l (3 adults) stayed with our small yorkie. The house was cozy, clean and comfortable. Laurie was a wonderful, accommodating host ensuring we had everything we needed. The fireplace was a treat to use and the animals were fun to meet, especially the adorable mini donkey.

Peaceful and fun!

  • 5 of 5

Laurie was such a welcoming, amazing host! It was such a pleasure having her and her fabulous animals next door. I stayed at the cottage with my kids and family friends. The children all loved feeding her chickens and petting and currying the donkey and horse. We all loved the fresh eggs for breakfast! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed. It was a pleasure to just sit with a good book and watch the river. My kids loved exploring the river banks and watching the birds. The location of the cottage was fantastic, close to hiking and to town. We plan to be back! Thanks so much, Laurie!

Quiet, clean, well-supplied family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Our family and guests were all comfortable and happy here. Great family spaces and private spaces inside; and wonderful outdoor atmosphere. We used the home for the week of West Point graduation and were very happy with it.

Laurie Willow is easy to work with and close by.
