I grew up in Paris France, My wife in new Hampshire and we leave in NYC for many years.
Alain Pinon purchased this farmhouse in 2010
We bought This traditional farm house that was built in 2006 with great finishes, on the top of a hill, because it is only 90 minutes from New York city. This an area with rolling hills and horse farm along with traditional farming. Many celebrities have homes in Millbrook due to the easy access and the authenticity of many villages in the region.
My wife and i fell in love with this region as well as the town of Millbrook. This house is very secluded and located on top of a hill about 950 feet. Great breeze during the summer and star gazing at night. This is a very special setting where you can feel peaceful as well as so relaxed. If you love horse back riding this area is the place to be with many stunning horse farms as well as Polo farms, where you can watch a game of polo on weekends.
We spent Thanksgiving with our two children at this beautiful house and can't say enough good things about it. We were met by the local caretaker who showed us around. The owner had also thoughtfully left a bottle of wine as well as binder with lots of suggestions on the local areas restauarants and activities.
Let's start with the setting. The house is set back at the end of a long uphill driveway which gives the house privacy and serenity. The owner has everything you'd need for outdoor living - a grill, table with ample seating, a soccer goal to entertain the kids, etc.
The house itself is updated, clean, spacious, and beautifully appointed. There is a windowed living room downstairs with lots of light and a fireplace as well as a separate den with TV (with cable and Netflix). The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked a full Thanksgiving meal there with no problems. Sonos controlled speakers and Nest thermostats throughout make it pleasing and comfortable. There are four good sized bedrooms upstairs along with two bathrooms and laundry facilities.
The owner was very responsive and was ready to help with any questions.
We loved our stay at the house and couldn't recommend it more highly.
My family and I stayed at the house for 4 nights over Thanksgiving.
The house itself is at the end of a long driveway on the top of a hill. As a result it is very private and serene. There's ample space to play outside and the owner has all of what you'd need - grill, outdoor table, goal for soccer, etc. We were greeted by a local caretaker who showed us around the house.
The inside of the house is beautiful and very tastefully decorated. It truly fees like a home. The kitchen is updated and clean but very charming at the same time. We cooked a full Thanksgiving meal there with no problems. There's enough kitchen equipment to suit a chef. The living room is surrounded by windows, gets lots of light, has a working fireplace, and is an ideal place to sit down with a book or hang out with the family. The den has a large TV with cable/Netflix and a fireplace. The entire house is equipped with speakers and a Sonos sound system. There are four well proportioned bedrooms upstairs with two bathrooms.
If you are bringing kids, they will love the large playroom in the basement. It has a drum set, cars, puzzles, a ping pong table, dart board, and all kinds of other toys to keep them busy. It was hard to get the kids out of there!
The owner was very responsive, left a nice bottle of wine for us to enjoy, and was a pleasure to deal with.
We highly recommend this property.
Our family was extremely happy with this house. We rented this over the Columbus Day weekend with our family of 4 and 2 grandparents. The house is very spacious (bigger than it looks in the pictures) well kept, extremely clean and tidy. The decor is great, kitchen well stocked, the Sonos system really easy to use and added immensely to the experience. The location and grounds couldn't be better and Alain was a responsive and accommodating host. Our children, 5 and 8 couldn't get enough of the playroom. The house is close to everything making day trips in the area a breeze. Much has been said in the other posts that I won't go on but I concur with all the other positive reviews here. We will definitely be returning.
We had a great time in Alain's house in August 2016. My family loved the location which is the most beautiful part of the Hudson Valley and easy access by train or via the Taconic. The house is very quiet and very clean. It's comfortable feel makes it feel like a welcoming home and my three old daughter loved playing in the basement / playroom as well as in the beautiful backyard. Alain was very responsive, easy to talk to and eager to help out with any questions. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could ever need, the beds are comfortable and the furnishings are beautiful. I hope we will be able to return again to Alain's house soon.
My family had a wonderful long weekend in Millbrook! We arrived on Thursday greeted by the courteous caretaker who answered all our questions! We found the home to be beautifully decorated with everything we could possibly need. We traveled to the area for a close family friends wedding and required a property that could comfortably sleep my husband, myself & our five adult children. The bedrooms were very comfortable (linens, ceiling fans etc...) I would highly recommend this property..... as a matter of fact, we were all talking about a return weekend in the near future!
