Just 2.5 hours' drive from NYC, total peace and quiet. Clear your head, romance your sweetheart, take a writing retreat---in our cozy and sweet, updated cottage. Early spring blooms, new grass, fresh air.

Beadboard kitchen, tiled bath, new windows, fully insulated. In cold weather, down comforters; in spring sunshine, lovely terrace facing the back meadow, front porch for morning coffee, back porch for snoozing the afternoon away. Nature preserve nearby.

Small pet okay.

We're so glad you enjoyed it, Kylie, and that the house stayed toasty warm during that terribly cold spell! And that you enjoyed the library. We love to think of winter guests making good use of the peace and quiet, snuggled up for a nice read. Hope you come again sometime.

The house is surrounded by meadows on all sides; you can just see one farmhouse if you stand in the right spot. This is real farming country. Watch deer in the …
