About the property

7 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Converge for a family or college-roommate reunion, or gather the kids, grandkids and dogs for a month in the country in our 4500+-square foot, 6/7-bedroom, 5-bath 1840 farmhouse on the banks of the Kripplebush Creek.

The spacious, rambling old house features a rocking-chair front porch, screen porch, music room (keyboard, piano, harpsichord), giant eat-in kitchen (with couch!), dining room seating 10, and living room with 1860 hearth. There is even an adorable extra kitchen! It's set on 3 grassy acres punctuated by the Kripplebush Creek, two patios, seasonal trampoline, grill, firepit, and a tire swing.

We adore our rambling, eccentric, heimische home next to the creek, where the wild turkeys gather in the grey dawn, and where we once found a crayfish in the clear, cold water. So many touches charmed us during that first walk-through with our realtor: the tire-swing in a backyard tree, the wooden slat bridge leading across the creek into the woods, the couch that made the spacious kitchen seem so cozy, the bedroom with an artisanal (and working!) pottery sink, the attic proportioned like a yoga studio, the virgin-forest 18-inch pine floorboards in the master suite, and the wood-clad 'Cabin in the Sky' that eventually became our music room, concert hall, and songwriting studio.

The house contains beds for 9, but comfortably sleeps up to 16 guests, including a Baby Bjorn travel crib for a child 0-3. And if you don't think you're looking for such a large place for your small family's vacation, know that our family of three regularly enjoy ourselves here without feeling as if we are knocking around in a deserted castle; this is a homey, warm house, which easily accommodates groups of any size without anyone feeling either isolated or crowded.

We are located two hours north of NYC, and accessible by car, Trailways bus (to nearby Rosendale), and both Amtrak and Metro-North rail lines to Poughkeepsie. We are 15 minutes from Kingston, 20 minutes from New Paltz, and 30 minutes from Woodstock.

The Hudson Valley is an all-seasons destination, with downhill and cross-country skiing, hiking, river tubing, sledding, fruit-picking, leaf-peeping, shopping, farm-to-table and fine dining, a vibrant folk, rock, and classical music tradition, art galleries and open studios, antiquing, scenic walks, historic sites, unique small museums, farmers' markets, and beautifully-preserved Colonial-era architecture. The area is defined as much by the Hudson River as it is by its twin mountain ranges (Shawungunks to the east, Catskills to the west). Or just hang out near home: hike into the woods to find ruined stone walls, pack a picnic and walk the creek to the local Schoolhouse Museum or beyond, play the piano, cook a fabulous meal in our welcoming kitchen and enjoy it with 10 of your closest friends around our dining table made from a reclaimed bowling alley, or sip a glass of wine on the screen porch while night falls and the crickets sing a duet with the creek.

The historic and beautiful Hudson Valley is a collection of lovely old towns ringed by mountains and bisected by the lordly Hudson River. Farms, orchards, fine dining hiking, rock climbing, cross-country skiing, scenic walks, antiquing, shopping, folk music, and local fairs and markets are among the attractions. Equally great is just to hang out with friends or family in a beautiful old farmhouse, cook, toast marshmallows, dabble your feet in the Kripplebush Creek, and relax. Urban New Yorkers have made the Hudson Valley their second home for more than two hundred years, and its small-town sophistication reflects that urban-rural interconnectedness. Foodies and eco-foodies in particular will relish the many farm-to-table restaurants and the opportunity to get to the actual source of those local foods they prize. There are endless hikes for lovers of the outdoors, from the flat rail trail system that runs for miles through the area, to serious mountaineering. Historic homes (FDR, the Vanderbilts) and sites, small museums (the D&H Canal Museum in High Falls, the Samuel Dorsky Art Museum in New Paltz), and remnants of Colonial-era settlement (such as New Paltz's Huguenot Street, the Old Hurley Burying Ground, and Kingston's Stockade District) provide historic interest. Music of all types, from classical (The Maverick Concerts) to folk (check local listings) to classic rock at the Bearsvile Theatre, art galleries and open studios abound for culture-lovers.
