Staatsburg Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

PLEASE NOTE! $200 is base ( single in apt ) price only. Check Notes section for other rate details.The house is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac high on a wooded hill overlooking The Hudson River and Catskill Mountains with some of the area's most breathtaking views. The sun sets right in front of the house every night and slightly to the south in winter. The two bedroom apt. is approximately 1000 square feet and located on the first floor of this modern and well maintained home. The apt is newly renovated. I installed new hardwood floors, sisal carpets, A/C and air purification system, new beds and bedding, some new furniture, fresh paint, new screens on porch and Flat screen TV. It has a well lit and private entry 50 ft.from parking. Bathroom with shower, large living room with fireplace ( firewood included ) which can accommodate more guests if necessary, Fully equipped kitchen, covered, screened in porch and large deck area with Small outdoor dining table, adirondack chairs and hammock.

I am an artist/designer living quietly upstairs. The two zones are very private and separate. The decor is tasteful, uncluttered and clean. Dogs are welcome depending on their temperament and size. Please mention ahead of time if you would like to bring your pup. They would not be permitted on furniture or beds and must be curbed on the premises and picked up after. I would love to share my idyllic setting and assist in anyway that might make your visit more comfortable.

The charming village of Rhinebeck is four miles north teeming with restaurants and shopping. i am surrounded on all sides by grand Hudson River Villas many of which are open to the public. I live in the midst of a NY State park where you will find miles of trails for hiking and biking. Norrie point is a public marina for sailing and kayaking. Southlands is an equestrian center just up the road. Further afield, Bard and Vassar Colleges have plenty to offer.. Tennis, indoor swimming, suana, art collections, music venues just to name a few. Hudson offers the best antiquing around while Millbrook has vineyards and the most bucolic country this side of 'The Pond', Downhill skiing is 45 minutes away, Catamount in the Berkshires or Windham and Hunter Mountains in The Catskills.

Keywords: Two Story Private Home, Owner lives upstairs in separate quarters.

About Hilary Huntington

I have lived in Rhinebeck since 1990, my family has lived here since 1832. My kids are happily living elsewhere and they left a big vacancy so I am wanting to fill it with polite, friendly travelers who are curious about this part of the world. I am an artist /designer who lives upstairs with my pug, who will be especially happy to see you! I love to travel myself and hope you will find everything here that you might have at home or would expect to find in a good hotel or fully equipped house. I am accommodating, quiet and unobtrusive. Please let me know if you need anything to make your stay more comfortable or if you want suggestions to explore the area.

Hilary Huntington purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Hilary Huntington chose New York

I bought this property immediately upon seeing the view. I instantly saw the potential and love living here!

What makes this apartment unique

The long distance views and sunsets will make it hard to tear yourself away! While you drive through a neighborhood to get here, once you rise up the vertiginous drive and arrive at the house, you will think you are miles from civilization. It's peaceful, quiet and occupies the highest geological point in the immediate area.

Comfortable, nicely furnished, quiet with beautiful view and mountains beyond.

  • 5 of 5

My wife, puppy and I had a great three day/night stay at this property and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Rhinebeck vicinity. We were welcomed at check in and provided great advice as to things to do and places to eat. Great hiking nearby and restful quiet in the evenings.

Lovely Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Hilary's house. The apartment is an entirely self contained unit on a beautiful property that is convenient to the many great amenities in the area. The space is elegant and comfortable with everything one could need. Hilary was a welcoming and responsive host. We would absolutely return to this home.

An extraordinary getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location and a more pristine rents space. The apartment was immaculate and well-equipped, Hilary was very responsive and the views over the Hudson were gorgeous. We came into town for a family wedding and we will definitely be back for another stay.

Great place to stay with a wonderful view.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at the highest spot in Staatsburg to find an inviting home with a view of the Hudson River a couple miles away. Comfortable lounge chairs were positioned for having the best view of trees and the river. Inside the house were 2 comfortable bedrooms, kitchen, and living room/ dining room. No bad surprises. Many basic cooking supplies and cookware. Hillary offered other supplies from her kitchen/ herb garden that we might need. Planned on cooking a couple of nights but 2 of us were attending the CIA cooking boot camp and we brought back 3 to 5 boxes of left overs from our class's efforts everyday so did no new cooking but had more great eating than we could do. This house provided a much better place to spend a week than a couple of hotel rooms. Would come back to stay if I took another class. Would recommend to anyone

Fabulous Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Enjoy a serene getaway in a pristine, uniquely and tastefully furnished apartment overlooking the Hudson and beyond. A wall of windows brings the outdoors in. Quiet central a/c keeps you pleasantly cool and comfortable in the heat of summer. The sunsets are fantastic from this hilltop retreat, but even a gray, rainy day is relaxing and restorative when spent in such a lovely location. Centrally located to many Hudson River attractions with the quaint town of Rhinebeck just a few miles up the road. Can't forget to mention the glorious beds and linens. You sink into comfort and luxury for a restful good night's sleep every night. Hilary is unobtrusive, but attentive if needed. Just a perfect place to stay when visiting the Hudson River Valley.

This property boasts the highest point in Hyde Park with geological markers to prove it. The views are sensational! If you are lovely guests :-) you are welcome to visit my deck for higher views! For pet owners, I would ask that IF you leave your pooch behind while you are out exploring, please inform me so if I am able, I can care for him/her if you gone for many hours. Please, if you are a single or a double, rate is for 1 bedroom only. If you sleep separately, your rate will increase slightly. See rate section for 2 singles in apt. Thank you.
