Bella Vista in Saugerties / Malden

House - Entire home/apt · Bigelow Road, Malden, NY 12477, United States

The Space

Charming private duplex space within my home, consisting of 2 Bedrooms (each with queen bed), 1 1/2 bath, living room (with fireplace and queen sofa bed - so can sleep total of 6), and kitchen. Private entrance, wide-board floors, fully furnished. (ground level has living room, kitchen, 1/2 bath and one bedroom; first floor has one bedroom and a full bathroom). The bedrooms have air conditioning.
Communal space includes pool, decks, and garden area overlooking the Hudson River. Wifi and cable TV. Seasonal views of the Hudson River.

Malden-on-Hudson is a peaceful, sweet hamlet 100 miles north of NYC, along the Hudson River. There is a public dock and boat launch within walking distance of the house.(Bring your kayaks!) The morning sun on the river and the moon glow at night is quite special. The nearest village is Saugerties (1.3 miles), a typical Hudson Valley village with good restaurants, shops, book stores, a farmers market, movie theatre, etc. We are near the Saugerties lighthouse - it's an easy hike out to the lighthouse - a perfect spot for a picnic on a hot summer day. Sailing - I advise booking in advance of your stay ((website hidden)).

Woodstock (9 miles), Rhinebeck, Hudson, Tivoli, Bard College Fischer Center/Summerscape, and Olana are all within easy driving distance. Also close to many areas of natural beauty including Kaaterskill Falls, Hunter Mountain, Mohonk Mountain House, and an abundance of hiking trails.

Just minutes to HITS on the Hudson - an olympic level horse jumping venue which runs 6 weeks in the summer.

**** The pool is closed for the season - Sept 2013.

A cleaning fee and deposit will be added for weekly or longer rentals. Sorry, no pets. Please note that there is a cat in the main part of the house but she does not go into the separate duplex space.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our stay in Gilda's home in Malden was fantastic. The house was beautiful, very homey and full of great antiques. The river view was lovely and the area was wonderfully peaceful. We had fun exploring Saugerties and Woodstock and would love to come back for some hiking one day. Gilda was a gracious and helpful hostess. I would unreservedly recommend staying here for a relaxing getaway.

  • Our stay at Bella Vista was wonderful! If you look at the photos and think the property and surrounding area must be too good to be true, I will attest that it is, in fact, that good. The house is absolutely charming with a cozy fireplace in the living room and bedroom (one in bedroom isn't functioning but is still very charming). The Hudson is literally across the street and the sunset/sunrises on the water are gorgeous. Gilda could not have been more nice and accommodating. We definitely would love to stay agin!

  • Wonderful home! Gilda was a great hostess and made sure we had everything we needed. The sitting room with fireplace was perfect. We will definitely return.

    February 2014
  • It was a pleasure to meet Gilda. She was a great host and we felt completely comfortable in her her lovely home.
    We arrived late on a Friday night and she was very accommodating and her instructions were great. The house was very cozy and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the fireplace and the record player! The house was only a few minutes away from downtown Saugherties and its coffee shops, restaurants, bars, hiking trails, etc. We didn't go to Hunter mountain but we met several ppl in the neighborhood who did so as it's a short drive. And Gilda has such an amazing background, we loved chatting with her about her travels and experiences. Ad of course, we can't forget the scones she made for our last day! All in all, a great weekend in a great home with a great host. We will be going back!!

  • She was very accommodating with our last minute booking and we were so glad it worked out! The house is just lovely and the fall leaves were fabulous. Also, the little town of Saugerties is a really wonderful place to spend a weekend. We hope to come back again!

  • We had such a great stay here- Gilda was a very nice and gracious host, always asking if we needed anything and making sure everything was ok. The house was very nice, clean, and cozy- and the pool and view of the river made it that much better! Could not say enough good things about this house and the host!
