Perks for the Parents

This family-friendly Dutchess County home dates to 1730 and includes a wood burning stove in the den, a treehouse outside in the garden and plenty of space to play, relax and enjoy a countryside break together. Located in beautiful Amenia, a rural Hudson Valley town with antique stores, several nice restaurants (including Serevan, book on Opentable) and a drive-in movie theater, it is great for families seeking a break from the city. The home is a 5-minute bike ride on a quiet road from the Hudson Valley Rail Trail, a 12-mile stretch perfect for all levels of cycling experience.

Why Kids Love it

The house is great for kids of all ages and is packed with toys, games and places to play. It includes a pack’n’play for little ones and cars, dinos, board games, books and Legos for older kids. There is a treehouse in the garden (please ensure children are supervised) and a lot of space inside and outside to play. Nearby, the delights of Amenia particularly suit families, with a drive-in movie theater, Sharon Audubon Center, swimming lake with lifeguards, diners, and a bike trail all within 15 minutes’ drive.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 days over Thanksgiving, 3 days for holiday weekends, 2 days for all other times. Note that for babies/toddlers, there is a stair gate on one of the bedroom doors but not at the top of the stairs, so please take care. Children must be supervised on the treehouse and should be kept away from the open fire and wood stove. In addition to the listed beds, there is a cot bed that could sleep an extra adult or child, and a child's air bed. Each could fit in any of the bedrooms. A caretaker will greet guests and is nearby during your stay. The house has off-street parking and car rental is strongly advised. Note that there is no TV and no high chair provided.

About the Location

Recently featured in the New York Times due to the new Silo Ridge luxury golf course that is being created on the opposite side of the small town, Amenia is the perfect place from which to explore the Hudson Valley, with all the natural beauty, food and antiquing that it has to offer. The house is a 15-minute drive to Millbrook, 10 minutes to Millerton, 40 minutes to Hudson and 40 minutes to Rhinebeck. It is in a quiet spot and is within walking distance of a grocery store. Bordering Connecticut in rural Dutchess County, Amenia is 1 hour 45 minutes from NYC by car, and a 5 minute taxi-ride from Wassaic train station (Metro North line from Grand Central). It is just under 2 hours from New York City’s airports, with Bradley International Airport in Connecticut a 1.5 hour drive away.

Accommodation Details

Set in a 2-acre garden with a treehouse, this 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home has a light-filled kitchen, living room with fireplace, dining room, den and screened back porch. The living room has a fireplace and there is a wood-burning stove in the den; there is a full kitchen and a propane gas grill on the outside patio. Bedrooms comprise 1 with kingsize bed, 1 with 2 twin beds and 1 with a twin bed. The house has an elliptical trainer and a Pilates wall; the garden includes a tree swing and a front porch with rocking chairs.

Style Notes

Historic country home. This 1730 Dutchess County home combines historic features with modern amenities. The original building dates from the 18th century and it was renovated in the past 4 years, combining traditional features such as exposed wood beams with modern comforts including a large walk-in shower and newly-built screened-porch. Decorated with a unique vintage style, high points include a cozy fireplace in living room and wood-burning stove in the den. We love the treehouse in the garden, the fabulous gardens and the light and spacious family living areas.

A New York mom who grew up in the English countryside - we have owned this family weekend home since my son was a baby and have many, many happy memories of his childhood here (and of wine on the porch!)

We had a wonderful weekend at Tory's country house. The house itself is spacious and we enjoyed the comfy sofas in the living room in front of the fire. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to cook in. We were happy to be there for a snowfall and enjoyed the area for sledding and hot chocolate. There is a lot to do nearby and I can imagine it must be beautiful in the summer too. The screened porch looks perfect for summer nights. I highly recommend this home and host.

We had the most relaxing weekend! The house is very warm and cozy and the highlight was the treehouse that my son couldn’t get enough of. Highly recommend and hope to return soon

What a beautiful and scenic home. It was just perfect for our family of 4. Plenty of space to stretch out and close enough to Beacon and many other sites in the Hudson Valley that we had a wonderful weekend exploring. Thank you for sharing your home with us Tori!
