The space
Bedford is the perfect getaway from Manhattan to get some peace and quiet, spend time in nature and visit the cultural highlights of the area like John Jay Homestead, Caramoor, Storm King and eat at fantastic local restaurants like the Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges.

The house is great for your Christmas holiday - a dining room with large dining table, a big living room with fireplace to have a roaring fire, a study with television and another fireplace and big windows to watch the snow fall.

The pool is generally open from the end of May until the beginning of September, the opening/closing times will vary based on weather conditions.

Guest access
The entire home and grounds. The pool is private. The house in on seven acres, everything is private and secluded.

Other things to note
As a country home we have gardeners who come to mow the lawn, blow the leaves and weed. We do our utmost to schedule these services to come when guests are not at the house, but it is not always possible. Interruption will be kept to a minimum.

For stays a month or longer we will bill you for the utilities which includes: gas, electricity, verizon, cleaning, lawn cutting, grounds maintenance and pool maintenance. During winter this is approximately $800-1000, during summer it's $1800-2000.

Aside from the house being a wonderful retreat, it is also close to many great restaurants and places of interest to visit. In autumn the area is colorful with changing leaves, in winter its great for snowshoeing and reading by the fire, in spring time our garden is budding and summer time it's bursting with color.

The house is close to many hotspots of business and culture in Westchester and Fairfield counties. It is a 20 minute drive from downtown Stamford, Connecticut; a 25 minute drive from downtown Greenwich, CT; a one hour drive from New Haven, CT; a 15 minute drive from Armonk, NY; a 25 minute drive to White Plains.

Upon booking we will send you a map of all the places to visit within a 1 hour drive of the house, plus all the local hot-spots to eat, shop and more.

I work for a travel company and love helping people see the world - I love getting to know a place and then sharing my intel on the best things to see and do. When not entrenched in travel - I'm photographing (see my photos on (Hidden by Airbnb) @becauseits_there), trail running, getting outdoors and otherwise enjoying this great planet we live on. I love to hear about great finds I've never heard of - I hope you'll share any things you do/places you go that you love while you're staying at the house! Life motto: try everything, most likely twice.
