Sue Nilsson purchased this cottage in 2011
This 1938 cottage captured my heart the moment I saw it.
The deck and quiet setting are inspiring.
It is comfortable, and welcoming.
We spent three years updating the electricity, plumbing, and even added a carbon water filter to make sure water is pure.
Stone and wood created a cozy rustic charm, with ample natural light
This cottage provides easy access to anything any traveler might wish to do. And when all you want is a retreat from the hectic city life, it offers the serenity only a forest can provide.
Our family enjoyed our stay at the Lil Red Cottage. It had everything needed for our family with a stove, refrigerator, large shower and comfortable beds for sleeping. The cottage is small but very nicely decorated with a large deck for cooking out. It is also a short distance to Travel to West Point which is helpful. The host is very nice and accommodated our needs. I wouldn't hesitate to rent it again!
Was in town for Army/Air Force weekend and the property was very will suited for the three of us.
There is a European feel to the place. A fair alternative to a hotel price for the 2 nights. The owner was
very good with communication and has spent significant resources in updating the place.
This cozy cottage had everything I needed to feel at home. The owner was accommodating and easy to reach. You can tell by the extra special touches that she loves her home. I hope I can revisit this place and the magic I felt there.
I stayed at the cottage over a fall weekend with my boyfriend and sister. It was a great place for 3 adults - the loft was very spacious! We loved the entire cottage, but especially the back porch and kitchen! The cottage was stocked with all the things we needed to cook great meals and the games provided were great for our rainy Sunday morning.
I would highly recommend staying at the cottage! It was a great way to spend a weekend or long week away. We are from NYC and the drive to the cottage was very convenient. There is plenty to do nearby - we went to an Octoberfest at Bear Mountain on Saturday. It's also nice just to spend time at the cottage and enjoying the nature!
The listing description was accurate and the property was clean and well maintained.
The cottage is charming with the touches of Sweden and German. The bath and kitchen have been recently redone and are lovely and complete. It seems every need has been looked after, particularly in the kitchen. The owner was very helpful, providing prompt and complete information on the cottage, getting their, local attractions, etc., etc. We came for Storm King Sculpture Park and hiking in Harriman State Park. These were great; we realized we only scratched the surface in terms of attractions.
I would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone.
We stayed at the cottage during our wedding weekend at the nearby farm Blooming Hill Farm and had a great time. The cottage is so cute and was simply perfect for our stay! Sue was a great host and provided all the information needed to have a great time in her cottage. We would highly recommend staying at the cottage to anyone headed upstate for a getaway.
The cottage is less than 20 minutes from shopping, wineries, hiking, biking and lakes where you can take your canoe or kayak or go swimming. It is located half way between Monroe, NY and Washingtonville, NY. It is also a 25 minute drive (about 16 miles) to West Point Military Academy.
