About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

West Point Graduation 2018 not available. Reservations for 2019 will be taken as of 1/1/18.( Graduation week has a higher rate.) There is a 3 night minimum stay for New Years (Fri - Mon 1/1).

This is a three bedroom home (sleeps 8) two bath, deck, fireplace and outdoor hot tub with partial views of the Hudson River and surrounding highlands. Located within Manitoga Nature Preserve, 5 minute drive to train, 15 minute drive to West Point. 10 minutes to Cold Spring.

Here is your perfect getaway retreat. Surrounded by a private nature preserve forest , the Adirondak styled house makes a perfect four season get away. It is just an hour away by car or train from New York City (5 minutes by car to the Garrison train station). The two story cape style farm house sits overlooking a grassy meadow. Step out to the deck through the glass doors from the sun room (surrounded on three sides with floor to ceiling glass), and relax inside, or out. Cook up some steaks on the barbeque, enjoy the forest scenery from the outdoor hot tub with a glass of wine, or go for a walk on the many nature trails which connect you to the famous Appalachian trail. Lots to do in the neighborhood, antique shopping in Cold Spring, visit West Point Military Academy, explore many historical revolutionary war fortifications, spend a day on the many lakes, and of course the Hudson River (partially viewable from the deck). Cook hot dogs in the backyard fire pit overlooking the pond. Bring your laptop, excellent WIFI available, plus cable TV on two large screen tvs. This is our full time home, not an empty rental house, so you will find a well equipped kitchen and anything else you may need for a comfortable stay. Pets OK. No smoking allowed.

About The Owner

We've lived in and enjoyed this country home for many years. Every season is a delightful change here. Now we have the opportunity to travel and spend time in other places. So, we're making the home available on a limited basis.

The Owner purchased this house in 1984

Why The Owner chose Garrison

I commuted to manhattan for 20 years on the train. I've always loved the train ride up and down the Hudson River. The transition is astounding, coming from a country road through the forest to that amazing city in about an hour was incredible. We visit New York City often, its very accessible by train or car whenever we want it.

What makes this house unique

Great hiking and biking in the area. Trails lead directly from the house which is surrounded by a nature preserve. Paths connect to the nearby Appalachian trail. Antique hunting is fabulous in Cold Spring, also enjoy walks there along the Hudson River.

Great place to stay for West Point

  • 4 of 5

We were 3 couples in the area for the weekend to celebrate my husband and his buddies 25th class reunion at West Point (we didn't want to stay an hour away in NJ where the class had hotel rooms reserved). It was a quaint, cozy home and just what we needed. There were 3 bedrooms all with queen beds; no deciding which couple had to take the twin beds..which happens a lot with other vacay rentals! The views were lovely and the fall weather was perfect. There was also a neat little path that leads to a pond. We used this backdrop to take some gorgeous photos.

Our visit of New York and USMA

  • 5 of 5

Kay was a wonderful host. My son described it best when he said he wished all of the homes in our area had as much character as this old world charmer. It truly was like visiting a wealthy uncles country home. I wish we had booked a tour of the nearby Manitoga home right next door. It has wonderful access to the rail system which in just over an hour will get you to New York with an amazing scenic view of the river for most of the time. We also enjoyed it's close access to the United States military Academy where we visited my son. We also happen to hit this house right during prime season colors in October – we will carry forward many wonderful memories for years to come.

Ring Weekend 2016

  • 5 of 5

What a great way to spend the weekend. Close to West Point, it was easy to come and go to the various events we attended. We enjoyed coffee in the morning sitting in the sun room, hiking on the trails and of course a dip in the hot tub at night. Country charm it was comfortable for our family of 5. Close to activities in Cold Springs as well as Garrison.

An antidote to city life

  • 5 of 5

The date shown here is the most recent of our several stays in this cozy and comfortable retreat. Nestled *within* the 75 acres of woods, trails, and falling water that compose the Manitoga nature preserve (for ample reason a National Historic Landmark), this rustic home and its natural surroundings are my family's favorite place to embrace nature, solitude, and endless beauty. Or to party! -- with friends on the deck, beneath the starry sky in the hot tub, or while lounging about the charming two-level living-room with its abundant windows that let the outside in. With not a neighbor to be seen or heard, privacy abounds. The soothing babble of the nearby creek is an ongoing call to serenity that lingers long after leaving. The changing seasons are fully experienced here, and I cannot say which is best. Thanks again, Kay, and see you soon!
