My “constant companion and best friend in old age” and I love where we live, and I have written about the little hamlet, the views, the river, the birds, the train, and how wonderful it is to come home to when away. With that in mind, we have renovated the cottage next door into a Guest House, and are happy to announce our opening of “The Make Your Own Damn Bed & Breakfast”. We will provide you with the all fixings for your breakfast, and thus offer you privacy and flexibility.
We consider it the perfect Sanctuary for One or a Love Nest for Two, but the cottage can easily accommodate four with the futon in the common space.
It is two floors & open concept. Take a look at the pictures — they speak for themselves. It has lots of closet space and is ideal for a two person long term stay.
You will have a view of the Hudson River and the Catskills . You will be a mere football field away from riverside Cheviot Park where you can launch your kayak, canoe or fishing rig, or fish from the pier. From the small porch you can have coffee and watch the sun come up and the water birds and eagles hunt for fish. In the sunroom you can enjoy an evening cocktail and the pinks and greys of the sunset through the clouds. You can see the ice float up and down river depending upon the tides. You can wave to the New York politicians taking Amtrak from the city to Albany. You can paint, take photos, walk, sleep, read.
Or you can leave the your nest to dine on fun or fine food, drink locally brewed beer and whisky, cook your own meal in a spotless new kitchen using local products purchased at nearby farmers’ markets in season. You can walk Warren Street in Hudson and marvel at how the prices of antiques rival if not top the prices of similar wares in the city. You can visit your son at Bard, just 8+ miles away. You can stroll in Rhinebeck, take in a movie, shop the many boutiques. You can soak yourself in history, music, architecture, dance, art, and take scenic walks and challenging hikes. All this and more — Gaskins, Tousey Winery, Upstate Films, Olana, Jazz in GTown —
And like us, you will find out how wonderful it is come home to our little neighborhood with its view, tranquility and charm.
