A unique opportunity to sleep and relax on the majestic Hudson River only one hour from the great cultural center of New York City. Located on a quiet street that ends at an entrance to the Palisades State Park with a 5 mile bike/hiking trail along the Hudson. Five minutes away you can take a small ferry across the river to the Hudson River train line to Grand Central Station. Very unique location with spectacular river views. You can visit the museums and theater of NYC and come home to hike and relax and listen to the sound of the river. We have a stairway down to the Hudson and provide the use of a canoe & kayak and a fire pit on the shores of the Hudson. The house is a 5 minute drive from the Village of Haverstraw with an array of Latino food and small bodegas and 15 minutes from Nyack, with its charming shops and restaurants. Bear Mountain & Harriman State Park are within a half hour drive with a myriad of amazing hiking trails.
My husband, Jim & I both grew up in the midwest- he by a lake & me on a farm but we are both artists and professors and work in Manhattan- this property made it possible for us to have it all.
Joan Harmon purchased this house in 2000
The proximity to the cultural center of NYC with a State Park trail along the Hudson and beachfront where we can swim and canoe & kayak- this is unique and very special. The addition of a ferry service to the Metro North makes country/city living a dream.
The majestic views of the Hudson and the sound of the water as you sleep at night and the chance to sit and walk by the river made me fall in love- its all about the magic of the riverand having a State Park trail along the river at the end of our block.
Thanks you for making your home our home for an extended weekend. You have no idea what an escape to a small river town means to four exhausted city girls. Being able to boat, hike, swim and cook is exactly what we'd dreamed of doing this Labor Day weekend. This is the type of artistic retreat we one day dream of owning. Thanks for your hospitality.
This cozy home away from home sits high above the Hudson river with stunning views of sailboats and the sounds of waves lapping at the shore. Both ample bedrooms have views. There are two sitting areas. One upstairs is a tv room and the other is living, dining kitchen with more spectacular views and a veranda for eating outside. There are lots of steps on this property so if you have trouble with steep steps it might not be for you. We loved going all the way down to the river with my 7 year old granddaughter where she played happily skipping rocks into the water and gathering shells. We also enjoyed the hot tub which is about half way down.
The house is furnished in a relaxed comfortable style and the kitchen had everything we needed to make family meals. Unlike impersonal hotels, this home felt like we were visiting a relative with a great book collection and personal art work. We also enjoyed the ferry to Ossining and train to NYC. If we return to this area for a future family event, we would love to stay again.
This property is a real gem. It's very clean, cozy and has everything you need in the kitchen. The owner met me at the house and showed me around, he was so kind and welcoming and told us about the local restaurants. The beds are comfortable and the living room upstairs is perfect to watch TV and relax. The hot tub was awesome and a real treat. I was a little disappointed the fireplaces were not functional and are only "decorative", but oh well. The cabana by the water is small but a fun place to watch people fish and drink wine. I really loved this property and want to come back soon!
I love this house! This was my first VRBO experience and it will be hard for any future places to top it. I stayed for a week and it was amazing. I am a hiker and there are numerous excellent hikes in the area-- a great (round trip) 10 mile one begins just at the end of the road. Plus, easy access to Bear Mountain and Rockland Lake Parks. I do not believe I have seen more beautiful sunrises. The house is a unique place and very, very cozy. I recommend this home, and the very pleasant and respectful owners, without hesitation.
My husband works a lot and I'm home with a toddler so we were looking for a low key, relaxing long weekend away and certainly found it in this quaint little home. Our visit was during some very cold weather so there wasn't much outdoor exploring but the views can't be beat from the downstairs semmingly wall of windows overlooking The Hudson. Not to mention, it doesn't get much better if you happen to roll over (in the extremely comfortable bed) during sunrise and peak open your eyes. A surprise for us was the food offerings in near by Haverstraw. It turned into quite the foodie experience! It's hard to find any let alone authentic ethnic food where we live so we found ourselves indulging in Mexican, Equadorian, Peruvian and Caribbean options, none of which disappointed. I can only imagine how beautiful this home would be in the summer with a huge new deck to enjoy off the back, hot tub and Hudson fun! We hope to make it back to find out!
Wonderful place. Joan was soo nice and welcoming. She has a lovely clean home with a marvelous view. My room was the master it was cozy, warm and the view has no words you must see it for yourself. The small accents of the house are spectacular! Especially the by the boat house. But I must say be perpared to walk up some stairs.... But the greatest thing is the art all around!
I grilled and used the kitchen it has everything you need Including a gas grill on the deck.The Hot tub was nice in the morning with the sun coming up. I brought my own bike but actually hiked the bike trail and found waterfalls, beaches and all kind of lovely treasures. We would definitely go back.
The house was a great place to stay for our family! Plenty of space to sleep 5-6 people, and the hot tub was fantastic! It was very clean, and we loved the smaller riverfront house by the water with the fire pit. Would definitely come back again!
