Lovely place and perfect for a weekend wedding stay. Very clean, cute, plenty of room to lounge about and Hilary was great. Thank you!
This is a sweet space in the Hudson River Valley with views, comfort and relaxation. This home, nestled in the hillside of Rhinebeck has everything a weary traveler could want. I appreciated Hilary's diligence helping me to make arrangements so that I could stay at her house.
Hillary's apartment is clean and lovely. The apartment is the bottom floor of her house and she lives upstairs, but it still feels reasonably private. Bed was super comfy. View is, as advertised, excellent. Bathroom is very nice. Kitchen facility is quite decent, although not great for major cooking. Hillary was very accommodating and responsive to make sure we were comfortable without being intrusive.
Hilary was great. Fun to talk with, very knowledgeable about the area and gracious; so certainly check in with her when you're planning your day. She is also very quiet and unobtrusive when you're spending time in the lovely apartment she rents. It's a two bedroom suite on her bottom floor with beautiful views of the Hudson. The location is perfect for trips north to Rhinebeck and Hudson, as well as south to Hyde Park (5 minutes away). Definitely an excellent, relaxing base for exploration of the area.
About the Host, Hilary
i am a recent empty nester and wanted to share the big comfy space left behind with anyone interested in visiting The beautiful Hudson River Valley. I fully renovated this house in 2005 so you will not be thrown by old plumbing or drafty, antiquated interiors. I live quietly upstairs and know you will not be disappointed in your decision to lodge here. I am an artist, a traveler myself and appreciate clean, uncluttered and artful design. My family has been in this valley since 1832 so I know how to show you around. I want you to be fully satisfied and as comfortable as you would be at home so please do not hesitate to ask for anything that might help achieve your total bliss factor! From my view you can see 11 different peaks on a clear day, i promise you the views and the sunsets will not disappoint nor will the area's multi cultural, venue packed adventures inside and outdoors! Come for the food, the wine, the arts, the movies, the skiing, the kayaking, the hiking, the sleeping, the quiet ( except when the distant train whistle blows and the icebreakers on the hudson clear a path for the tugs and barges ) I live on the highest point in town so the wind might whistle, the hawks will soar and you will see weather coming from miles away. I am so blessed to live here. Come see for yourself!
