About the property

Sparkling, Light-Flooded Townhouse Houses 7 Comfortably

Make this gorgeous townhouse your home base for summer festivals, Berkshire- and Hudson Valley weddings, sports, shopping, and leaf peeping. 3 bed/3 full baths have cozy bright furnishings, sun-drenched nooks, and streams of sunlight. Shop, hike, antique, host brunch, or just read in front of the fireplace. We're a 5-min walk to the Amtrak and downtown Hudson (Warren Street), a 5-min drive to theaters and hiking trails, and 10-40 minutes to Coxsackie, Catskill, Athens, Woodstock, Saugerties, the Berkshires, and other amazing landscapes and communities.

This house has real historic value (built in 1740), but all spaces are newly renovated, freshly painted, delightfully decorated, and clean clean clean!!!

The front door broadcasts ease. We've replaced the key lock with a powerful digital deadbolt. Enter softly to original 18th century heart pine flooring and sweeping staircase. To the left: the fireplace room, with two generous chaise lounge chairs, lacquered tray table, vintage lambswool throw, and (soon) reclaimed wood bookshelves and desks. Through the doorway are the kitchen, first full bath, and dining and living rooms: each bright and clean. We've got a 50' TV and incredibly comfy sofa for couch potatoes, a rustic dining table surrounded by French chairs made by Ligne Roset, shiny new appliances (programmable coffeemaker, microwave, D/W, W/D, Riedel glasses).

This summer, we'll be building a firepit out back...and perhaps a hot tub, too. Stay tuned!

Upstairs, the master bedroom faces the quiet backyard. Sink into the super-firm handmade mattress, and either shut away the sunlight (curtains are made of blackout velvet), or awaken to morning light. There's a great walk-in closet leading to the master bath, with its curved rod, handheld rain shower, and bathtub. Lay out your things on the provided luggage rack.

The middle bedroom is very special, with a bird theme and a small patio all its own. The queen bed is brand new and very good for your back. Closets are great for keeping the wrinkles out of your dresses and suits, and we provide a luggage rack for your suitcases.

The hallway features local art (Earl is a fixture around here!). Down the hall is a room for kiddies and adults alike. Two single adults can comfortably sleep on these ultra-firm handmade XL twin mattresses...or put the kids here, in front of a rocking chair ideal for story time.

Please note that this is the owner's second home, and there are a few sparse owner's items that won't impede the renters' space and enjoyment of the home. Additionally, a cat stays on the premises about 3 weekends a year, so those extremely allergic might not want to book. We thoroughly wash all bedding & floors before & after every stay.

A third full bath sits in between the two bedrooms: clean and bright, with thirsty towels and amenities provided.

Hudson is marvelous. The antique shops draw designers from all over the eastern seaboard. Vintage shops and designers abound. The shopping and restaurants rival anything I've seen in Manhattan or Brooklyn: and I am a former food and travel critic for New York Magazine, so I know what I'm talking about! The people are similarly friendly and great: you really feel like part of this town after just a day.

The Amtrak station is four blocks away: straight shot north from Penn Station: two hours one way, and a beautiful ride. I'll provide a guide to restaurants and shops, and get you quickly acclimated to the area.

This area is like a sophisticated, cultural Hamptons. You've got intelligent ruralism: a great farmer's market, eco-consciousness, smart design sensibilities. You've got a real sense of history: the area was settled in the mid-18th century. You've got nature: hiking, cycling, and boating as far as the eye can see (and we can recommend great spots for all). And then there's the urban splendor of Warren Street: world-class antiquing, vintage stores, new designers, and food so amazing that I'd pick Hudson over NYC in any restaurant showdown. The people are INCREDIBLY sweet: educated, generous, thoughtful. It's built to be an ideal weekend getaway for New Yorkers, Bostonians, New Englanders, and those from further afield!
