This large house on 7+ acres was originally a summer hotel. Currently a residence with a business selling used books and LPs and CDs from the 4 outbuildings on weekends. For more information- check out Little Red Book Shack. Located in Livingston, we are just a few minutes south of Hudson, home to dozens of galleries and antique shops. And we are just north of Red Hook and Rhinebeck. Though we are conveniently located on a thru road---State Route 9--- we have a green country setting.

Elizabeth, thanks, you were good guests. And yes, it's a cat household- even if they are not exactly where guests stay.

The place is exactly as described; it's a full country setting in which you are surrounded by books. Very comfortable, lots of cats. Melanie was very nice and accommodating.
