I like to provide you with general information and make sure you have everything you need when you settle in. After that its up to you to come and enjoy all the amazing Hudson River valley

Poughkeepsie, and the greater Hudson Valley area is a perfect place to getaway for a long weekend. 'The Valley' is known for spectacular views, beautiful apple orchards, and the Shawangunk mountain range. Our studio is centrally located between Marist and Vassar Colleges, walking distance to Vassar Hospital, and a few minute drive to The Walkway Over the Hudson. The Walkway which is the tallest, and longest pedestrian bridge in the country, towers over the scenic Hudson River and Mid-Hudson Bridge. This combination creates a breathtaking backdrop that changes with every season.
We have also been hard at work finishing the Hudson Valley Rail Trail, a 26 mile paved path that connects to the Walkway on both sides. The Rail Trail winds through the wooded Hudson Valley and can take you from Hopewell to New Paltz.
Of great! The Culinary Institute of America, nestled on a beautiful campus just 10 minutes from the apartment, ensures good eats every night of the week! Due to the location many of the restaurants in Poughkeepsie feature a kitchen full of culinary grads. (We have a couple recommendations to point you in the right direction).
Other historic attractions in the area include Locust Groove (Samuel B. Morris's Home), The Children's Museum, and (within 15 min car ride) the Franklin D. Roosevelt Estate, Vanderbilt Mansion, Mills Mansion, and Eleanor Roosevelt's hide away, Val-kill.
Not into history? Check out The Millhouse or Blue Collar Breweries for a localy brewed cold one, Tuttletown Distillery, Dutchess County Fairgrounds, and MANY vineyards that are home to some of New York's best wines! Come check it out, its truly a great place to stay!

It is easiest to get around town by car. Cabs are only a phone call away, and if your out late call safe ride. (a free cab ride home from the bars).

Queen city bistro on Main Street.
Crave Restaurant on Washington Ave.
Artist Palate on Main Street.

Really enjoyed Luis' place, 15 minute walk or 5 minute uber in to the historic part of town and its bars and restaurants.

My partner and I were in town for reunion weekend at Vassar. Luis’s place was perfect for us - about a 7 minute drive from campus, and a great place to rest and recharge! Luis was very accommodating in checking in early, as we had flown in on a red-eye. We both appreciated our st…

Luis' apartment was very clean and stylish and he was very responsive via text during our stay. All of his tips about local spots to check out were very useful. Unfortunately picking up and dropping off the keys was mildly annoying since we had to uber to his friend's house which…

Response from Luis J:
Thanks for your review. 90% of the time I am there to do the key exchange, and so far the other times I was able to mail the key one week in advance, however this time was not possible as I am abroad. But I will look into the lock box and see if doable Although some blocks might seem a bit rundown it is something I can’t change from the listing. I assume people coming to Poughkeepsie know is an up and coming (very slow) area as it was hot hard with the cuts of IBM in the past 15 years. However if you see a way it could be describe as a guest feel free to shoot me a line or two. Thanks once again for your stay and your feedback, I always want to make sure my guest feel at home

Luis was responsive to our request on short notice and accommodating. His flat made our trip to Poughkeepsie very comfortable. The bed and pillows were super comfortable. It is within easy walking distance from Vasser Brothers Medical Center with a Rite Aid on the way.

Luis’s place was certainly filled with light! It is a well-kept flat in a beautiful old building. It is just a short walk from the downtown Poughkeepsie and is very quiet. We will definitely look him up next time we head there! He is a great host who responded quickly and was ver…
