Photos and Description of the Red Hook vacation apartment rental

Large New Studio, Sleeps 2, French Doors to Private Patio, On 275' Lake Frontage

Come spend the fall in the Hudson Valley. Enjoy the sights & sounds of the country, see it's beautiful foliage, and with all the comforts of home. Fresh flowers and home baked cookies await your arrival. The Fox Den was designed with couples or a single in mind. Sorry, we cannot accommodate children or pets.

How about spending a romantic and cozy weekend in front of a warm fireplace, or perhaps to get lost in a good book on your private patio, overlooking the lake. You have found your perfect, private retreat, a place to relax and enjoy the quiet. We are on 20 acres of unspoiled woodlands, walking trails, pretty cottage gardens, as well as 275' of lake frontage.

We are on a private lake, motor boats are not permitted, allowing you to enjoy kayaking, paddle boating, fishing, or just floating around to your hearts content. (Boating season is May 1st - September 30th.) We have lounges by the lake, and a roomy hammock for two for swaying in the country air.

We have a pair of swans that visit every summer. Mallards, beavers, painted turtles, trout & small mouth bass, call this lake home. There are red fox, & deer (twin fawns are not that unusual). There are red tailed hawks & owls, beautiful north eastern birds and if you're lucky, you'll see an American bald eagle.

The Fox Den is decorated with our guests in mind, comfortable, with plenty of natural sunlight. A fully equipped kitchen with a full size oven & refrigerator. We also provide coffee & tea. A luxurious queen size bed with a lake view, and a private bath (towels are provided for both bath and lake). A stone patio, all to yourselves, with a gas grill, overlooking your private path to the lake. Your privacy is paramount to us (we respect that you are here for some peace & quiet).

If you want to drive about and see the countryside, there are many interesting destinations to discover, and most are close by. Antiquing, wineries, glorious estates, beautiful gardens, horseback riding, & delicious restaurants of all kinds. (The Culinary Institute is located in the heart of the Hudson Valley.) Bard college, the Richard B. Fisher Performing Arts Ctr., The Omega Institute, Opus 40, charming towns (such as Red Hook, Rhinebeck, Hudson, Tivoli, & Woodstock), farmers markets, seasonal orchards for picking your own fruit, & much more await you!

We are located on the same private road as the Painted Turtle Cottage. If you like to get away with friends & family, its the perfect place to vacation together & still have your privacy.

We love it here, and know you will too.

Boating season is May 1st - September 30th.

The Fox Den is in the perfect location. We are 10 minutes (or less), to our town of Red Hook, which is a wonderful small town with some great restaurants and shops. Our favorite place to hunt for old, country antiques and treasures is Hoffman's Barn. It's in Red Hook, behind the movie theatre. Another is Living Eden, one of my favorites.

Only 20 minutes from us is Rhinebeck, which is an artsy, interesting town. Everyone flocks to Rhinebeck! It's a wonderful town, with it's history, restaurants and shops. Home to the Beekman Arms Inn, the oldest continuous running inn in America. The food is excellent. The pub (located in the back) is a step back in time, warm and cozy. The greenhouse is located in the front of the restaurant, where you can view the lovely town. Also, Terrapin restaurant and Gigi's Trattoria are delicious places to dine and have seating both inside and out.

The Hudson Valley is home to the CIA (Culinary Institute of America), which is why our chefs are outstanding!

The Dutchess County Fairgrounds are also in Rhinebeck. Please check out their website. They host plenty of fairs throughout the summer into the fall.

We have lots to do in the Hudson Valley and plenty of towns to visit, Hudson, Tivoli, Hyde Park, Red Hook and Rhinebeck; and across the river are Woodstock, New Paltz, & Saugherties, just to name a few

Come and visit us!
