Perks for the Parents

This renovated farmhouse set on 100 wooded acres with a creek, hiking trails, pond and heated pool, includes a fully contained guest house, ideal for 2 families traveling together or a traveling nanny or grandparents. The main house sleeps up to 8 plus a toddler and the guest house sleeps up to 7. Close to a family-friendly town and completely surrounded by nature, it provides plenty of family entertainment, from mountain adventures to local bike routes and summer theater. There are 2 built-in barbecues. Relax poolside, escape to the master suite, or gather in the gourmet kitchen for a refreshing take on Hudson Valley.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will love the vast outdoor space with creek, hiking, heated pool and jungle gym, as well as the nearby farms, museums and theaters. There is a ski area a short drive away. Children's bikes are available to use. A TV, game console, Apple TV with Netflix are provided for the family’s indoor entertainment, and plenty of toys for all ages. Sports equipment includes soccer nets, tennis rackets (adults and little kids) and balls for the local public courts. There is also a jungle gym with sand box and slide. Meet the neighborhood farm animals, go on nature walks right on the property, and visit the annual county fair for local flavor.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 1 week. Outside of summer months, the guesthouse can be rented separately for $300 per night. A stair gate can be installed at the bottom of the stairs, but not at the top, on request only. Housekeeping, gardening, and pool maintenance is included once per week. The pool is surrounded by a fence but the pool house is within that fence (there are alarms on those doors). It’s the wooden fence you see in the first photo. A high chair and 2 travel cribs are available to use. Washer/dryer, dishwasher, WiFi and air conditioning included. The grocery store is 3 miles from the house, and there is the option of a food co op that sources local and organic foods

Style Notes

Sunny and relaxed. This restored farmhouse showcases bright, natural light, stunning views from the many windows and white shiplap throughout. An incredible cook’s kitchen is the center of the home with a large butcher block island, farmhouse sink, and open shelving with Weck jars. The landscaped back yard includes heated pool, lounge chairs, outdoor dining, built in BBQ and 100 acres of land with marked hiking trails. We love the exposed wooden beams, vintage pendant lights, cozy window seats and incredible setting.

Lisa was friendly and helpful and accommodating. The house was beautiful but not so precious that it wasn’t kid friendly. Great lawn for games, great pool. Hosts allowed us to have a caterered dinner at the house as our house renovation was not complete & not ready for guests! This could have been complicated but they accommodated us with ease and little fuss. Convenient to the Taconic & Chatham. Would recommend house to anyone wanting a lovely Hudson River Valley experience. Thanks Lisa & family (& sorry for delay in reviewing! :)

We had an absolutely fantastic week with the family ranging from ages 2 months to 70 years. The house was perfect for two families and so family and cooking friendly. Lisa gave us lists of things to do and could not have been more gracious with her introduction to the property and special treats. We loved the house, the property and the area. We hope to visit again!

Culture and countryside adventures

In the beautiful setting of Columbia County, Chatham is a pretty town with plenty to keep a family occupied for a week or more. Take to the trees at Catamount Ski Area for aerial adventures - or skiing in season; visit local farms and meet the animals; hike or cycle local routes or take in some culture in the many and varied performance spaces and theaters of the town. There’s an annual county fair too, plenty of distilleries, wineries and breweries to visit, and state parks to explore a short drive away.
