We had an absolute amazing experience at the Bassinova estate! We loved every minute of being there! It's the perfect place to unwind & relax! We enjoyed the beautiful pool, the fabulous jacuzzi, the breathtaking views & the well kept landscapes. Richard & Jean were so helpful with everything they are truly amazing!

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I booked Bassanova along with three other couples (and children) to celebrate the new year for a long weekend. The property was gorgeous with amazing views of the Hudson River. The house was clean and easily accommodated our entire party with plenty of room to spare.

Jean made the booking process extremely easy and we had a property manager who was available our entire stay for any questions or last minute requests.

I would highly recommend spending some time at Bassanova. .

My family and I just spent Thanksgiving weekend at the Bassinova Estate and we had a fabulous time! The home had every amenity we could have possibly wanted. The view of the Hudson River especially in the morning was completely breath taking, not to mention a Turkey Bowl on the lawn made the day just as special for all of us. It is an experience we will never forget. Jean and Richard definitely put together a wonderful home and completed it with a list of surrounding places to enhance our trip. I would highly recommend this to anyone, it was truly a great experience!

Beautiful property, amazing house!!

  • 5 of 5

I had the most amazing weekend with a group of friends. We absolutely loved the house (comfortable beds, huge kitchen with everything you would need to cook even for a group). We spent a lot of time outside at the pool and also taking walks through the neighborhood. You cannot beat this view of the Hudson either, right from the house! Unbelievable. We spent a nice day in Hudson, not a far drive, which was a blast. I cannot recommend this property enough!

Bassinova-simply magical for bride/groom & guests!

  • 5 of 5

Bassinova -on -Hudson was the PERFECT choice to have family stay and enjoy a magical wedding on site! I have to admit, the photos on line show you the estate, but they can't let you experience the view! Breathtaking, especially from the balconies! The lawn was a natural setting for a wedding ceremony and reception, and caterer friendly! The home was not only beautiful, but extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean inside and out, with a huge equipped kitchen as well as a large patio for grilling...the stereo system throughout the house, and outside, was amazing. From the lush landscaping, to the infinity pool with hot tub to the grand seven acre lawn, all were manicured to reflect our daughter and son in law's wedding photos! We were even lucky to witness gigantic barges right in front of us on the Hudson!

Jean and Richard are the proud owners of Bassinova, who we were fortunate to have met. They are very detailed oriented, making sure that their guests walk away with memorable photos and stories. We certainly did! We would love to have the opportunity someday to rent Bassinova again...
