Perks for the Parents

This painstakingly owner-restored, designed and crafted barn with an open space for gathering and hidden nooks is set on 3.5 acres 14 minutes northeast of Red Hook. The beautiful main space is one of a kind and offers the opportunity for kids and parents to do their own thing, yet always feel connected. The use of reclaimed timbers and reclaimed barn siding from the same barn give the space a unique feel even among many other outstanding rental opportunities. The loft has toys for kids and board games, as well as extra chairs and pillows. Red Hook itself offers family-friendly eateries, swimming lakes and farms to explore.

Why Kids Love it

The kids will love the hidden nooks (not all of which have been photographed), the trails circumventing the field which allow you to still see your young ones, the swing set with fort and in summer, the proximity to magnificent swimming beaches and swimming holes. A third outbuilding has additional options for older children to play in, including a basketball hoop, ping pong table, and space to play indoor soccer or tennis. Little ones love the big yard, trails and swing set while older boys and girls love the the outbuilding housing the basketball hoop and ping pong table.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights for all weekends in Summer and Fall and all other weekends which include a Holiday. Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Years will have extended minimums - please inquire! 2 night minimum for all other weekends. The upstairs bedroom is separate but not completely private from the living area as a few gaps in the barn window sash wall allow sound to flow between spaces. There are 3 sets of stairs to navigate; the 2 indoor stairs can be locked by parents of toddlers in child-proof ways. The deck stairs will need a gate, if you plan to relax on the deck with a toddler. Small children will need to be supervised around fireplaces - note there are no guards. There is a toddler-sized toilet seat and a baby bath tub available. There is no TV. Tick checks are necessary in 3 of 4 seasons. A sofa bed can be made available also. The owners live in the home adjacent to the barn.

About the Location

The residence is 14 minutes northeast of Red Hook in the rural hills of Gallatin in the Hudson River Valley. There is a unique culture developing and growing exponentially in the Hudson River Valley where you can be alone in the woods, yet access fine food, arts and culture in almost every small town. State Parks, hikes with stunning views, waterfalls, and meandering bird-watching walks all abound. The house is close to swimming lakes considered ethereal, yet fairly unknown. The residence is in the middle of it. It is easily accessed from NYC, Boston and Philadelphia. Trains can get you as close as Poughkeepsie, Wassaic, Rhinecliff or Hudson, from where car rental is recommended.

Accommodation Details

This barn includes 1 downstairs bedroom with queensize bed, gas fireplace, and private half bathroom. Upstairs is 1 full bathroom, 1 bedroom with queensize bed and 1 queensize day bed in the great room. There is an additional fold-out queensize sofa in the great room, which also includes a lounge, dining area and kitchen plus fireplace. The barn sits on a rural 3.5 acre parcel.

Style Notes

Light, airy and rustic. Full of light and divisions created by old window sashes, the space creates an open connected feeling while still creating hidden nooks for curling up with a good book in your own space. The big windows face an upward sloping meadow, a veritable bird sanctuary much of the year. The rustic and reclaimed interior is serene and warm. With the meadow and fireplace, the space encourages reflection and community. We love the white walls, access to countryside and cozy fire.

We are a family of four with an "extra" barn on our property, great for small to medium sized families like you! We work hard at multiple jobs, to make our happy country life a reality. The barn was a labor of love, and hopefully reflects our creative efforts in life. We have two daughters, ages 9 and 13, who love to see other young kids on the land, enjoying the outdoors (and swingset). We look forward to having you here! Gregg & Molly

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this special, happy place. Molly and Gregg were wonderful and remained available need be but afforded us the privacy we sought. The barn is gorgeous and comfortable. The grounds were lovely - we walked them several times including by moonlight. The porch was a great place to unwind and have dinner - even was bugfree. All in all a 10+.

We had a great stay at the barn! Gregg was a great host and very responsive and flexible. The barn was well designed and had everything you need. Very cozy. The kids liked playing in the upstairs "treehouse" and we enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen. The fireplace was a nice touch! The location is very close to many great towns, restaurants and places of interest.

What a beautiful and fun space to stay! We loved our stay in the barn. The place itself is a work of art with so many interesting nooks and materials used in the space. Our kids loved playing inside and outside. It's a beautiful setting and we made a wonderful campfire and roasted marshmallows. Greg and Molly were helpful and very nice. There is lots to do in the area.

Red Hook NY, Hudson Valley

Countryside, food and culture

This pretty Hudson Valley town, adjacent to Rhinebeck, is known for its food and cultural scene. You can be alone in the woods, splashing in swimming holes and hiking state parks in the morning then exploring the village’s foodie stores and stops in the afternoon. Pies and farm-fresh foods are the order of the day; picking strawberries, peas and asparagus at Grieg Farm is a local tradition, and its Sunday farmer’s market is worth a visit too.
