A spectacular location well situated in the midst of the Hudson Valley offering an ideal base from which to explore this scenic region. The space offered is part of the lower floor of a beautiful 1883 home that sits on approximately 14 acres. The location lies adjacent to where the naturalist John Burroughs once made his home and did much of his writing. Hike the trails of Slabsides, Burroughs cabin retreat a bit down the road or enjoy locally sourced restaurants The Global Pallet and Stonehedge, both in close proximity. Otherwise one can just enjoy the natural beauty of the region gazing from the property across the river at the Vanderbilt Mansion, in Hyde Park, also home to the Culinary Institute of America, or by watching the numerous boats that float along the Hudson. The region also is known for its vibrant art scene and Kingston's popular Roundout area for galleries, antiques and great places to dine is under 15 minutes away. Beacon is about 40 minutes from the house. During winter enjoy the day cross country or downhill skiing. Mohonk Mountain House (10 miles), Hunter Mountain (1 hour) and the Catskills are in the vicinity.
Enjoy apple or pumpkin picking in the fall, skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, a summer boat tour or antiquing and gallery hopping all year round. There are a number of grand estates including the Vanderbilt Mansion which are available for public touring. There are a number of sumptuous farmers markets in summer and fall in the area.
You may access the space through the entrance at the front door of the house or via a private entrance at the back of the home. The front entrance requires that you go down a set of stairs to the space. There is also a private entrance from the back to the space. There is a beautiful garden and large property that guests will enjoy exploring!
