About Dana Perry

Our family acquired this 86-acre estate directly from descendants of the Livingston family in 1969. Situated on the the bluffs directly above the Hudson river, the property has unparalleled views of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains. The newly renovated Gate House, originally built around 1860, offers a comfortable place for family and friends to enjoy the peace and quiet of their own private retreat in the woods.

Dana Perry purchased this cottage in 1969

Why Dana Perry chose Hudson Valley

The Hudson River Valley remains an undiscovered gem, especially for New York City residents looking for the joys of country living just 2 hours away. There are endless delights to be explored in the area - local farms and pick-your-own orchards, eclectic music, theater and dance available at Bard College, delightful towns such as Tivoli, Rhinebeck and Hudson in addition to terrific hiking, kayaking and biking.

What makes this cottage unique

Walk the property and take in breathtaking panoramic views of the Hudson River and Catskill mountains, especially vibrant at sunset. Visit the horses, sheep and goats.

There are abundant deer, wild turkeys, hawks, heron and a variety of other birds, as well as the occasional fox and eagle sighting. Bose radio has a sound dock for playing your iPod.

Comfortable and cozy home on stunning property

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I stayed in the gate house over Labor Day weekend. It was charming, comfortable and private. The property was gorgeous: the views of the river were absolutely spectacular. If you visit in warm weather, the pool is incredible. I would definitely return to this magical place.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this lovely gatehouse was heaven on earth. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful as well as the river's edge view of the Hudson and Catskill mountains which are breathtaking. To wake up to the birdsong and goats and sheep talking to each other was truly a highlight of our morning walks. The owners were welcoming and kind and it was a pleasure to see them from time to time throughout our stay. We will definitely be back!

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful cottage! My twins and I loved the experience. It's a gorgeous property in a bucolic setting. The pool (which was the big hit with the kids) was fantastic, as well as nearby hikes and farmer's markets. We are eager to return in the fall. I would highly recommend.
