Our 19th century Dutch Colonial has charm in this historic town 15 miles north of NYC. Enjoy scenic Hudson Valleys quaint river villages or hop a coach to Times Square, then back to our comfy beds, lounges, fireplaces, garden and nature trails.
Arrive up our private road to a park setting in the spring, summer and fall, with outdoor seating areas, hammock, dining area and a canopy swing for two. Fruit trees, flower and vegetable gardens flourish (in season). Our house, built in the 1850's has woodwork from gifted architects and craftsmen. From built in china cabinets to parquet floors (they just don't build them like this anymore). Come in and enjoy some refreshment, look around and see where you would like to relax later, the sunroom, living room or library. Up one flight and pass a second fireplace and lounge area. Head up the stairs and choose from one King bedroom or one Queen bedroom on a private floor with a full bath. Plenty of room to enjoy a winter stay with fireplaces, board games, books and movies.
A motor coach passes often (hourly at times) and will stop at the end of our road and whisk you off to New York City in less than an hour.

Laurie is a customer service professional who truly has a heart for all animals and wildlife. She is a Master Gardener and a nature photographer. We like to travel to take photos and one of her favorite places was the Galapagos Islands, she'll be checking out Iceland this year.
I made my living from my love for food, as a gourmet Chef for high-end establishments in New York City and Los Angeles. I've consulted, launched and led teams as an Executive Chef.
I currently freelance cater and execute large events in Manhattan, Greenwich Conneticut and the Hamptons for several high-end caterers in the area. In between events I write for film, novels and work on producing a variety of positive project ventures that I aspire will help nurture both families and community.
We were both born and raised up the street from one another yet didn't meet until after we both lived and traveled extensively through some states.
I believe "where you are is where its at, because you are there, so just enjoy the"Present".
I've learned that;
"It's not always greener on the other side, only where you water it!"
