About Penelope Pi-Sunyer
We have owned this home since 1985 and have enjoyed many cozy winters and hot summers with our friends, daughters and grandchildren. We have been renting the house for part of the summer -- we use it for the rest of the time -- for the past 11 years and would be pleased for you to enjoy it, too!
Penelope Pi-Sunyer purchased this House in 1985
Why Penelope Pi-Sunyer chose Philipstown
We bought this house for the beauty of the house itself, its proximity to NYC and its truly picturesque setting. We can escape the heat of the City in just over one hour and take a dive into the refreshing pool. Our children and grandchildren love to visit. When we can tear ourselves away from the house, we love to visit the many wonderful sites and activities nearby.
What makes this House unique
We are very secluded in this house. After driving up the driveway and down the hill, the house sits perched on a hillside and the view of the valley is spectacular. The house's simplicity and beauty is a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the city. But the amenities of Cold Spring village are nearby.

Great house, lovely owners
The house, the grounds and that extraordinary view were perfect for us and our 19yo twins. We were able to use it as a base to explore the Hudson Valley and, because of the ease of the nearby Metro North stop, to have many friends up from NYC to visit. The flexibility of the sleeping arrangements meant we could accommodate family and friends overnight easily, and having coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening on that deck was a daily joy. The owners were generous, communicative and great hosts from a distance. Everything in the description of the house is absolutely accurate -- not something we've found at every place we've rented. Thank you!
Our family (parents and three adult children) had a wonderful time at
this house last year. We liked it so much, we are returning this
The wrap-around deck, overlooking a long, forest valley is fabulous.
You can spend all day there. The deck has a big picnic table, a chaise
lounge and plenty of comfortable chairs and little tables, a gas
grill, and a charcoal grill. Inside, the first floor has an open
layout with the kitchen, dining area and living room flowing into each
other, facing a wall of windows overlooking the forest, with views of
the hills beyond, and the sky. The pool is refreshing and close
enough to the house to have a chat with folks on the deck while
lounging in the pool. This place is very comfortable and relaxing and
totally "away from it all" - yet easy travel to NYC by train or car.
Cold Spring offers restaurants, and a park by the Hudson. Dia Beacon
and Storm King are short drives away. Highly recommended!!
Extraordinary Home Away From Home
Our family enjoyed almost two months from mid-July - Labor Day 2013 at this beautifully maintained house in a breathtaking setting. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating and generous with their home, and were enthusiastic for us to make it our home for the summer with our children. The house itself is warm and inviting, filled with light, a fantastic kitchen, every bed and bath item you can think of, down to the bug spray, and a fabulous deck to lounge on and view the unbelievable hummingbirds and flowers every morning. The hammock was a favorite spot, as was the beautiful pool. We enjoyed the adorable town, and the ease of location to get to places like Dia Beacon, or hiking, though we were most happy staying home and enjoying the peace and beauty of the house and its property. Any difficulties or questions were easily and quickly remedied by the lovely owners. I cannot recommend this rental property more highly. We are looking forward to returning to this wonderful place that felt like home, and was difficult to leave!
Great spot for singles, couples or families; very private pool, deck and grounds; variety of restaurants; superb outdoor Shakespeare, parks, many historical homes and Dia Museum north on the Hudson; easy and tough mountain hiking and climbing; natural and recreational activities and a water park nearby. All with an easy commute by hourly trains or car to and from NYC.
