Perks for the Parents

This historic stone cottage on 16 acres near Accord in the Hudson Valley is a relaxing rural retreat, surrounded by quiet woods, mountain views, and a private pond with canoe. High ceilings and a bright, carefully-designed interior is tasteful, warm and inviting, featuring a charming sunny kitchen and clawfoot tub. Ride bikes on a nice, smooth bike path, only 15 minutes to Ashokan Reservoir. The house is 15 minutes from hiking at Mohonk or Minnewaska State Park.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will love running around the large yard, catching frogs by the pond, and exploring the local swimming hole and surrounding nature. They can play on the backyard swings, hammock and climbing rope, circle the pond on the property’s canoe, or use the bicycles (2 for small children, 2 for adults) for a family bike ride. There are plenty of toys and books available and a video projector and screen for theater-style movie nights.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. The property is in a very rural area and is unfenced and close to both the road and the pond - children must be supervised. Two children's life vests provided for the canoe. The library features some animal skulls and taxidermy. There is a local swimming hole and a pilates studio just down the street. The backyard is equipped with gas grill and dining table. Bicycles (2 children, 2 adult) and canoe provided. Interior stairs do not have safety gates. No TV but there is a screen and video projector for movies. WiFi and washer/dryer included; there are 2 small window air conditioning units in the upstairs guests rooms, but the house, being stone, is quite cool most of the time.

About the Location

The residence is around 10 minutes north of Accord in a rural part of the Hudson Valley. It is 1 hour 45 minutes from Manhattan and about 45 minutes from Stewart International Airport in Newburgh. Buses leave port authority almost every hour and drop you in Rosendale, a 15-minute drive from the house; a car is essential. Nearby activities include the Mohonk Mountains and ski area, local farms and farm stands, small, traditional towns, and a variety of locally-sourced restaurants. There is a grocery store and pharmacy a 20-minute drive away in Stone Ridge.

Accommodation Details

The property is set on 16 acres and includes a private pond with canoe. Set over 2 floors, the downstairs includes a great room with fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, a living room with farm table seating 8, and a library and toy room. The downstairs bathroom has a rain shower. All bedrooms are located upstairs: a master bedroom with queensize bed, child's bedroom with twin beds, and guest bedroom with a queensize bed. The upstairs bathroom has clawfoot tub.

Style Notes

Historic, bright and airy. This stone cottage has unusually high ceilings and many windows revealing the breathtaking backdrop. The interior is tastefully classic, featuring a charming kitchen with open shelves and farmhouse table, luxurious clawfoot tub, working fireplace, and exposed beams on the sloped master ceiling. We love the antique train station bench, museum-like mahogany library, and the many outdoor adventures to explore nearby.

The house is beautiful, very tastefully decorated with a cozy cabin feel. Rina was a wonderful host and easy to reach when we had a question. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, we hope we get the chance to visit again in the future!

We were two families with two children each and I must say, this was truly one of the most authentic and fun vacations ever! Starting with the house itself - the interior design was tastefully done - an old charm feel with modern amenities such as the bathrooms and kitchen. The kids loved the toys and the parents loved the espresso machine (with the hosts' exacting details on how to use it :)) We would love to visit again in the coming years!

We stayed a weekend at the Boodle Residence with another family - 4 adults and 3 kids in all - and had a wonderful time! The house was clean, well stocked, beautifully decorated and homey! We took full advantage of the grill, huge backyard (the swings were especially popular) and nearby farms. We hope to visit the Boodle residence again soon!

We had a wonderful time at the Boodle residence! We grilled every evening from local farmers markets and Rina was available to answer any questions or concerns we had. The house was well designed and comfortable for a family. We look forward to visiting again!

We had such a lovely stay at the Boodle Residence. The house was charming and perfectly styled, yet comfortable. We enjoyed the Fall weekend with both the outdoor fire pit and indoor wood-burning fireplace and found all that we needed in the kitchen to cook hearty meals. Not set up for a baby per se, but I had a one-year-old and it worked out perfectly with a travel crib in the kids room. Rina was available to answer all of my questions and checked up upon our arrival. I would highly recommend!

We had an amazing fall weekend at the Boodle residence - we were four adults and four kids aged 2-5, and everybody had the best time. The house is beautiful and with very stylish interior - yet still super practical and convenient with lots of toys for the kids, a perfectly equipped kitchen and lovely surroundings (my daughter would not leave the swings and the hammocks!). It's a great starting point for a day trip to the Minnewaska State Park, a local farm or winery etc. and then come back to BBQ and s'mores by the fire pitafterwards. Rina, our host, was super nice and really helpful with all of our questions, so highly recommend this house!
