My dream home…found!

I cannot say enough good things about this little slice of heaven just miles outside of New York City. We went there for a long weekend with three other couples and had the most magical “fall” weekend I could have ever imagined….I should start by saying I’ve been seeking a ‘Vermont-esque’ place to go during the Fall time for years close to New York City but have yet to find somewhere that does the trick…until now.
Not only is the house beautifully decorated (think mahogany, plaid, fireplaces, large chandeliers, handsome pieces of antique furniture) but it is large enough that each couple felt like they were on their own mini-vacation! We were able to gather in one of the many common areas but also spend time in our own areas without feeling that anyone else was even on the same property.
We spent the weekend antiquing in Hudson, cooking HUGE meals in the gourmet kitchen (and I found the kitchen to be perfectly stocked with appliances, utensils, etc), walking the grounds, sitting by one of the many fireplaces, and enjoying cards or boardgames from the game room.
It was a perfect escape…I was frankly thrilled to not have WiFi access and would have been disappointed to spend the weekend connected when I was surrounded by such beautiful nature!
We are planning to come back this winter for a more romantic getaway but I also think this would be a perfect place to come during the summer season…tennis courts, a pool, pond… a great place all around!
I would highly recommend this house to anyone seeking an escape from the chaos of the city and wanting to disconnect, relax, and enjoy nature. Our weekend was certainly full of laughter, love and memories.
