Stella Farm has great flow, which makes it ideal for entertaining and vacationing in all seasons. Winters are spent by the three fireplaces – in the kitchen, dining room and living room. The house is ideal for both cozy fireside meals in the kitchen with friends or hosting the whole family by the hearth for Thanksgiving. In the summer you can enjoy a brand new swimming pool, an abundant organic vegetable garden, a charming pond and beautiful grounds. There is a large screened in porch off the kitchen and a deck overlooking the pond. The dock, row boat and swimming tubes invite much fun in the summer months. There is also a state of the art trampoline, tether ball, a volley ball net and many other fun activities. Stella farm is extremely child and family friendly. Also perfect for a romantic getaway.
The house is ideally situated – near Rhinebeck, Red Hook, Tivoli and Bard College's Fisher Center for the Performing Arts. Twenty minutes from the the Amtrak station and nearby to both the Catskills and Berkshires for skiing and cultural events. And very nearby are both Greig and Meade Farms for seasonal fruit and vegetables along with Gigi's market.

We are a New York City based family. We love our country house and are happy to share its beauty and great energy with like-minded people and families.
Carolyn Cohen purchased this farmhouse in 2010
The area is great: it has all the advantages of the country and is only and hour and forty five minutes from NYC. Beautiful hiking, biking and swimming, great restaurants, wonderful shopping and antiquing, and a lot of cultural events (especially at Bard college)
The place is magical: the brand new swimming pool is wonderfully refreshing, the pond is majestic, birds galore, grounds are wide, quiet and poetic.
We had such a beautiful New Years weekend at Stella Farm. We had cozy meals by the fireplaces in both the kitchen and dining room, slept soundly on the comfy beds, enjoyed the beautiful grounds and loved having Rhinebeck, Kingston and Woodstock nearby. The longer we stayed the more we loved the house and would love to return in the summer to enjoy the pond, pool, screened in porch and deck. It was easy to get to and Carolyn was amazing to work with. We will always remember this very special oasis!
Carolyn's house is cozy an well equipped to spend time indoors cooking, reading and playing games; but also has a great property to explore and spend time by the creek or the pond. The fireplaces make it special and we loved getting ready to spend time in each room.
We frequently visit the area and Stella Farm was the nicest home we have stayed in. We were only there two days but we made the most of it. Had glowing fires in all 3 fireplaces, never turned on a TV, read, hit a couple of our favorite places to eat in Rhinebeck and Red Hook and enjoyed the quiet. Already thinking about going back!
Such a great retreat! This house has beautiful wide floors (for sure original!). Lovely kitchen and fantastic screened in porch with super comfy chairs.
The property is amazing, green and peaceful, with everything you need to lower your blood pressure and raise your pleasure quotient. The screened-in porch overlooking the pond became our home (we didn't eat a single meal inside long weekends over a whole month). On hot days, the pool and garden are like Eden. Quiet road with stunning neighboring farms make it impossible not to walk nearby. A little farther afield but still a short walk away you can explore 19th century graves, pick berries and apples, and take in spectacular sunsets over the Catskills (yes, they are real mountains). Farms in the area provide the freshest and best tasting produce one can buy anywhere. And between Rhinebeck, Red Hook, and Tivoli (with Hudson just a little further up the road), you have many restaurants, cafes, and galleries to choose from. A wonderful vacation--short or long.
Stella farms is a lovely old farmhouse that sits on one of the most beautiful plots of land in the vicinity. The house is charming and decorated authentically in tasteful and comfortabe antique style: the grounds are gorgeous, with old growth trees, beautiful gardens, and farmland across the quiet road. Pool and amenities are terrific. This is not a new build house with all the trimmings. Rather it is a delightful rustic place for those who want a true weekend in the countryside plus pool and creature comforts.
