About Bill Sullivan

Transplanted downstater who has been vacationing and 2nd homing in the area since 1976. An engineer/ builder by profession, we have tried to convert this c 1845 house to a special place both architecturally and mechanically. My wife and I truly enjoy our guests and love to share suggestions on what the area has to offer.

Bill Sullivan purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Bill Sullivan chose Hudson Valley

Fully LED and with high efficiency heat pumps, a super insulated structure makes the apartment very comfortable in both winter and summer - new wall construction makes this property very quiet and peaceful in a great in-town location. Walk to restaurants and shopping or day-trip to the great offerings of the Berkshires. Come for a weekend or a month stay you will never be bored.

We loved our stay in Bill and Lynne’s beautiful apartment in Hillsdale, a cute little town that’s convenient to the Berkshires as well as to Hudson, NY. The fully renovated unit is bright and attractively furnished, and offers every amenity, including a washer, dryer, and dishwasher. The marble bathroom is luxurious and fully modern, yet the apartment retains some of its historical charms with its wood floors and doors. With the cathedral ceilings and the open living area design, there is a sense of spaciousness, and its second floor location adds to the privacy of the unit. An added bonus was Lynne’s great consignment shop downstairs, which has an interesting selection of well-priced items—we left with several of them! Both Bill and Lynne are charming hosts, and helped us by giving directions to the Wassaic train station and recommendations to several good restaurants. We were totally comfortable in this lovely apartment, and look forward to staying there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words - we try to be the best for those that stay with us. Guests such as you and your partner deserve to be treated with respect and consideration whenever they travel - it seems that get-aways never happen often enough so the experience should always be special. Thanks for staying with us and we hope you enjoyed the music and the Berkshires.
