The space
Once a one room schoolhouse serving this rural Hudson Valley community, our historic cottage now features 1 lofted open bedroom, 1 full bath with washer/dryer, a full kitchen as well as a cozy living space.

Enjoy farmer market meals at the antique enamel table, catch-up on reading from the comforts of the fluffy couch or explore all the amazing surrounding upstate destinations. There’s also a twin daybed nook (with a real mattress) under the stairs that’s ideal to take an afternoon nap or for a third traveler to stay.

We’ve put a ton of love into updating while keeping her original charm, there’s even some initials in the antique wavy glass panes from students in the 1800s! It’s still full of historic details including some “old house” quirks (ex: the stairs are a bit steep/slanted and the antique windows do not open downstairs).

We are a rural getaway surrounded by woods and farmland. We keep the +150 year old cottage very clean but the occasional outdoor insect or spider/spider web might make an indoor appearance. You may also see wildlife in the yard like possums, deer and turkeys. If that makes you uncomfortable, this is probably not the little country spot for you.
