About Andy & Jess

Andy & Jess are NYC residents with a second home in Saugerties, purchased in 2011. Andy is originally from the south of England who has lived in NYC for 15 years now. Jessica is a born and bred New Yorker who grew up in Brooklyn, NY & the Upper East Side.

Andy & Jess purchased this house in 2011

Why Andy & Jess chose Saugerties

We fell in love with the property at first site, despite it not being finished. It was converted with lots of our love, hard work and attention, and we always look forward to our tranquil stays in such a special space. We love the village and town with all the great local businesses: great restaurants, pubs, old and indie movie theaters, juice bars and vegan ice cream :)

What makes this house unique

The house is a unique property and very much speaks for itself. It has the privacy and secluded feeling with being just minutes away from so many great restaurants and activities. It serves as the perfect home base for people looking to get away from the city's bustle. We always look forward to sharing our place with guests and hope to have people fall in love with the house and village just as we have.

Beautiful property, fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

The barn was better than I had expected (and I had high expectations!). The layout is fantastic for groups, the kitchen was beautiful and fully equipped, the property itself was picturesque. Waking up every morning to great sunlight, the sound of the forest, going downstairs and throwing open those big barn doors, it was amazing.

The information provided by the owners was very helpful.

I would stay here again. I will stay here again. My friends that joined me have all said they want to plan another event here. It was perfect. I couldn't be more satisfied.

The Ideal Winter Chalet

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house with a group of friends to get out of the city and relax. The Bellwood Barn is an exquisite home that catered to all our needs. It's the perfect place to stay in, play games, cook feasts, and listen to some vinyl. The owners are welcoming and lovely, we are already planning when we can come again.

Best house I've ever rented

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved the Bellmont Barn. From the moment my friends & I stepped foot inside, we were blown away. The space is massive, giving way to plenty of space to cook, read, relax, play games, play darts, and anything else. The interior was stellar- all the bedrooms are large and comfortable and are beautifully decorated. Jess and Andy were extremely accessible and ensured that all information you'd need for a great weekend was at your fingertips. Would highly recommend!

Loved our stay. Very cool space.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of three couples looking to get away for a few nights over the new years holiday. We loved our time at Bellwood Barn. The space is incredible...huge, open, catwalks, reclaimed wood beams, concrete floors, industrial kitchen. It's an old barn on the outside, but the inside is new, warm, and clean. The design is sort of minimalist but still very warm. We loved the heated floors, the wood stove, and the huge lounging area by the fire. There is a selection of vinyl and a sound system that provided a great soundtrack for our stay.

Jess was very easy to work with and responsive to all inquiries.
