Pretty, 3 bedroom raised ranch on one tree-filled acre at the northern foot of the Catskills. Koi pond. Modern kitchen. Fireplace. Wide oak floors. Loft-like main area. 13 miles to Hudson, 15 to Windham ski area. Country setting, near shopping.

The space

This sunny home is an updated mid-century modern raised ranch, with a large porch off the main living area. It has lovely touches like barn-side panelling on the upper and lower level, brick fire-place and a loft-like open floor plan, renovated baths, one with jacuzzi tub, and it has a fully equipped kitchen. During heating season, there is baseboard heating with 3 zoned thermostats. There are plenty of books and games. Downstairs there's a piano. In the yard, small b-ball court and a bubbling koi pond to delight you. There are security cameras at the front door and focused on porch, pond and driveway, for your safety.

You'll have access to the entire house, except for the owner's office.

The house is used by the owner year round, but when you are our guests you will have the house to yourself.

We're at the northern foot of the Catskill mountains just 2 hours from New York City and just 10 minutes from the I87 Thruway. 14 miles to Hudson for great antiquing and 20 miles to Windham for skiing and family fun. There are neighbors on our road, but it is rural nonetheless.

You'll need a car to get around and enjoy the many activities in the Hudson Valley/Catskill region. The Amtrak train goes to Hudson and there is a bus in nearby Cairo to and from NYC twice a day. Kingston is only 25 miles south as is Woodstock.

We prefer children to be over 6. If you do have kids or dogs, please contact me so that I can get a better understanding of your situation and needs.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire house, except the owner's office & garage. Only enter if you need to reset the wi-fi, or in summer to circulate the cool air when AC is in windows. There is a tree-filled one acre yard to play in. Checkin-in is 4pm, and we appreciate you arriving before 10pm as it is a quiet neighborhood.

Interaction with guests

The owner or owner's representative will be there if possible to greet the guests but not stay in the house during the guests' stay.

Other things to note

We prefer adults and children over 6. No parties. If you have kids or dogs, please contact me so that I can get a better understanding of your situation and needs.

Judy’s country house has everything you could desire: located into the woods but just few miles from big grocery stores and local attractions, it’s the perfect place to stay for activities or relaxing. Our plan was to explore around the area but because of some work to do, we had to stay inside more than expected. Was a pleasure working in front of the fireplace, having the sound of nature around us. We relaxed being in a very comfortable environment, with plenty of space in the living area and kitchen. The tavern with a piano and a big tv made it complete. All the amenities you can imagine are there for you: a nice and well furnished kitchen, tons of books and dvds, a fast internet connection, speakers for your iPhone/iPod, one acre of garden with trees and sitting areas. Judy was just amazing since the first contact and, even if she wasn’t able to welcome us at the beginning of our staying, everything was so incredibly organized that we didn’t need any extra information: all we needed to know was sent me via email (how to get in, how to operate the heater, lights, kitchen, fireplace etc etc) and the rest was just so intuitive that I haven’t even think it was my first time there! I will definitely come back again, now that I know that there’s a place like Judy’s where you can work, relax, decompress from the city, it’s impossible not to plan another trip soon!

Really enjoyed our stay. The place was just as described, and Judy was super helpful and communicative. We even left a cellphone behind accidentally and she was super prompt about making sure we got it back. It was much appreciated.

Judy's charming house was the perfect AirBnB experience - the house was perfectly organized, clean and everything was thoughtfully set up with guests in mind. The property itself is beautiful, quiet and surrounded by gorgeous trees. I was impressed with how clear her instructions were, and would definitely recommend the house for anyone interested in a Hudson Valley/Catskills area weekend. You definitely need a car to get around, but there is a huge amount to do within a 30 minute or less drive, including the Catskills park, which was stunning this weekend.

Everything about the house, the location and the scenery was fantastic. Judy left tons of helpful notes, reviews and books that got us familiar with the area. The house itself is charming as all hell, super homey vibe with plenty to of ways to keep yourself occupied. My wife and I enjoyed every moment of it and would gladly stay again.

A New Yorker through and through. Graduated from NYU, I work in TV and theatre as a writer and teaching artist. This is my "Asylum", my upstate studio retreat, where I write, pow-wow and plant seeds. I like sharing this special location, nestled on one acre at the northern foot of the Catskill Mountains, with quiet, respectful people from all walks of life and from all over the world. I am a fairly flexible host, but I do like people to regard my Airbnb as the private home/retreat that it is. I love nature, exercise, good food, plays, literature and jazz.
