On three wooded acres, our house is located on a quiet country road surrounded by nature and is a short drive to the culture of Hudson and the Berkshires, and around the corner from a contemporary and idyllic sculpture park (Art Omi). Hiking, swimming and skiing are all nearby. With three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an expansive deck, our house is ideal for couples and families (with kids). Play and explore all day and fall asleep to the sounds of frogs and owls.

The space

On a country road with berry bushes and flowers to pick, our house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and is on three acres. The house is 5 minutes from an idyllic outdoor sculpture park (Art Omi) that has free art and dance events, an amazing café with locally sourced food, cross-country skiing and sledding in winter and a Saturday morning drop-in art class for children. We are around the corner from Kinderhook Farm with its rolling hills, meat, poultry and eggs for sale, and many animals for kids to meet. The Kinderhook farmer's market is a 7 minute drive. Hiking, biking and running are all around and downhill skiing at Catamount (25 min) and Butternut (35 min) is nearby. We are also 15 minutes to the boutiques, galleries and restaurants in Hudson, ten minutes to Chatham and about 30 minutes to the Berkshires.
The ground floor has a master bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a full bathroom with tub, living room with cathedral ceilings and stone fireplace, and eat in kitchen. There is a sliding glass door leading from the kitchen to our spacious deck where you can grill or just sit and have a drink while enjoying the sunshine and listening to the birds. There is also a screened porch with glass doors just off the living room and that also leads out to the deck. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and glass doors leading to a small deck with views of the Catskill mountains. The second bedroom has two twin beds and a toddler bed. There is a full bath (shower, no tub) upstairs. Laundry is in the basement.

The house has a huge yard for playing frisbee, baseball or soccer and is surrounded by woods to explore, including a sledding hill in winter.

We loved the house, its surrounding and the beautiful lush landscape! what a jewel of quietness and respite from city living. We recommend Jason's house if you seek a comfy place for you and your family.

We really enjoyed our stay at Jason's house in Ghent, NY! The house was very clean and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the fireplace. The area is very quiet and pretty. The leaves were just starting to change and we enjoyed the scenic views as we drove around. The house is very close to the Omi Art Center, apple picking, and the town of Hudson is not too far. We also went on a great hike, and our boys tried fishing at nearby Lake Taghkanic which was beautiful. Overall this is a great place to unplug and unwind.
