Perks for the Parents

The Great Outdoors meets the Great Indoors in this gorgeous historic stone home in the heart of the Accord, New York. It sleeps 6 + 1. The picturesque retreat was built in the 1730’s and the current owners are only the 4th family to own it since then. It has original architectural features yet modern amenities such as a Wolf range in the kitchen, natural exposed stone interior, completely fenced lush gardens and woods surround the home. Explore the area's organic farms, restaurants, local shops and classic architecture and end the day on the terrace for alfresco dinners with local produce. It promises an idyllic family break from the city.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will love running around the large fenced yard, and exploring the local bike paths, swimming holes and surrounding nature. There are several bike rental stores in the area that cater to families. There are plenty of toys and books available. Nearby activities include the Mohonk Mountains Preserve, world class climbing in the “Gunks", jaw dropping hikes, bike paths for all levels, family friendly skiing, roller skating, and bowling,

Things to Know

Minimum stay of 5 nights preferred (please inquire about shorter stays). The house accommodates 6 guests comfortably. There no smoking permitted in the house. Guests have the whole house to themselves with the property manager, who lives down the street, available for any questions. There is a flight of stairs to the 2nd floor bedrooms that is not gated, though baby gates can be available for door ways. Kitchen and wall sockets are not child proofed. The garden is fully enclosed with a fence surrounding the 3 acres around the house, but children should be supervised since this is a rural area with local wildlife and possible poison ivy.

About the Location

This residence is in Accord, an in-demand area with countless activities including local farms and farm stands, cideries, breweries & distilleries, and a variety of locally-sourced restaurants and antique stores nearby. It is just 10 minutes from other lovely towns such as Stone Ridge and High Falls and 35 minutes from Woodstock. It is approximately 2 hours’ drive from New York City and a car is highly recommended to explore the area. There is also a bus from NYC to Rosendale, a 15 minute drive away. There is a grocery store and pharmacy 10 minutes’ drive away in Stone Ridge. Most convenient international airports include Stewart Airport (SWF) and Newark (EWR), but JFK or La Guardia are not much farther.

Accommodation Details

The house has 3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor: a large master suite has a queen bed and ensuite bathroom with a vintage clawfoot bathtub. A guest bedroom has a queensize bed and a kids bedroom has 2 twinsize beds and share a marble and exposed stone bathroom. The ground floor includes the living room with a pillowy couch near a large wood-burning stove that heats up the house in the winter. The cooks kitchen opens out onto the patio and large backyard, which is perfect for entertaining. A more formal dining room is inside and the kitchen also has a dining table. There is WIFI throughout and a Sonos system for streaming music in the living room, kitchen and patio.

Style Notes

Quintessentially rustic and chic, this upstate New York home is full of charm, style and comfort. We love the romantic bedrooms, the claw foot tub, cozy living room with a fireplace and the sun-drenched kitchen with dining area and chalkboard wall. Sweeping lawns and mature forests round out the classic but intimate feel of this woodsy getaway.

Hi! My name is Maria. I'm a mom to 2 amazing kids. Whenever we can, we love spending time at our home in Accord. It's such a special house and truly is our happy place. We're big into traveling, cooking, music, books and spending lots of quality time with friends and family. And we are huge fans of Kid & Coe!

Cider donuts, pumpkin picking, and rolling meadows

Two hours north of New York City, this quiet area of historic farms, pick-your-own pumpkins and traditional small towns makes for a relaxing break. Join the kids and go wild in the country, climbing trees, eating cider donuts, watching bald eagles soar, playing in meadows and hiking nature trails.

The most magical place I have been in a long time. Peaceful, beautiful, comfortable, and just perfect for our family. I would stay forever if I could! Maria is the bomb! She was completely receptive and available any time I had a question and the house has everything you could ever need.

This was a beautiful and serene home, we loved our stay. We particularly loved the gorgeous master bath, our toddler loved 'swimming' in the big tub. The huge yard and trampoline was also a bit hit. We enjoyed walking to the neighbors for fresh eggs and spying on the chickens and ducks. Overall this was a great stay and we wouldn't hesitate to book again.

We had a really wonderful stay at Maria's home. The house itself is beautiful and the interior is very tastefully decorated. All rooms are spacious which was ideal for 2 couples, one toddler and a baby. The bathrooms are fantastic and I particularly loved soaking in the roll top bath in the master bathroom! The kitchen is incredibly well stocked for budding chefs and was perfect to crate our Thanksgiving feast! My toddler loved running around the garden and the trampoline was a nice surprise for him! All communication ahead of and during the stay was excellent. Thank you Maria and Ben for a great stay, we will be back! The Prince Family.

Maria's house was lovely! It was the perfect escape from NYC and our girls enjoyed running through the sprinklers in her fenced in yard for hours each day. The house was beautifully decorated and conveniently located to so many family-friendly activities. Already planning our return trip! Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We absolutely loved staying at this house! Our family of four (kids ages 2-5) find this upstate home just PERFECT - the front and backyards are huge & enclosed, the kitchen is outfitted for a gourmet chef with the variety of cookware, pots, equipment that you'd never find in other vacation homes, the kids' room have plenty of toys & books, there's audio equipped in all of the main rooms so you can enjoy music while you are cooking in the kitchen, grilling out back, or lounging in the living room. The decor is beautifully done, the beds are super-comfortable to sleep in, and the house is just incredibly charming all throughout. I would highly recommend this place for a family looking for a low-key, very well-equipped, upstate retreat.

We have stayed at many vacation rentals, and as I'm sure you can imagine they can be hit or miss. The house was not only beautiful but perfectly equipped to meet our needs. Our sons loved the toys and backyard. We would look forward to renting your home again in the future. Thank you for the welcome bottle of wine and for purchasing the crib rails for our toddler!
