The space
Welcome to your home away from home in Garrison.

Do you have a special Birthday ? Anniversary?
How about a work retreat ? or do you want a break from the concrete jungle ? With planning for the 2023 West Point graduation upcoming PLEASE inquire first as the rate shown may not be accurate.

This charming 1910 farmhouse is perfect for resting, relaxation, restoring. It is fantastic for preparing meals as a group and having a decadent dinners with close friends or colleagues. Mature guests who can appreciate the tranquility of this peaceful setting. I am sorry we can not accommodate weddings but have great alternatives. Think country, cozy, intimate, serene, quiet and restorative ....

There are three buildings on the property and you will have access to the main house plus the amenities.

There are many great homes in this area. Although our home is truly a retreat. I once wanted to own a spa and the closest I have come is adding many amenities. The grounds are beautifully landscaped allowing for a walking meditation admiring the wonders of nature.

Using our outdoor walking labyrinth calms your mind as you weave into the center and out. Adjacent is the hot tub to soak your weary bones.

The outdoor living room cabana is equipped with a gorgeous stone fireplace ( we provide the wood for your convenience use as much as you like additional fee does apply). A glass of wine and the flames of a fire are a great way to end a summers day. Lounge by the pool and or revitalize in the sauna, you choose. Keep in mind the pool and pool area are opened seasonally (at the owners discretion). The pool is heated by the warmth of mother nature in other words the SUN (no pool heater). Solar panel heater coming soon...

We have a king, full, queen and two twin mattresses on the second floor ( which sleeps 8 people). The trundle beds are great for overflow and perfect for night time use. The four season porch has two twin beds and a full size mattress ( sleeps 4). There is a full sleep sofa in the living room as well ( sleeps 2 ). Upon request only a futon can be added (accommodates 2 additional guests in office).

More simplified :

Master Bedroom - 1 king
Second bedroom - 1 full, 1 twin
Third bedroom - 1 queen, 1 twin
Porch - 2 twin, 1 full
Living room - Sleep sofa
Upon request only Futon (in office)

The only question you will be asking yourself each day is which means should I use today to relax? Perhaps take a bath in the pedestal claw foot like bath tub surrounded by candles in the master bedroom? Or indulge in a steam shower? Or lounge on the deck off the master bedroom? Or do you love to cook?

Our sunlight kitchen with Viking stove with 6 burners and griddle allows for plenty of creativity and hours of entertaining.

One charming feature of being in the Garrison area are dirt roads and driveways. We are preserving this feature and have a dirt driveway (A wet winter or spring could mean a little mud). Going shoeless inside is recommended.

Wireless internet and cable are available.

We are a two minute drive to the Metro North Poughkeepsie line train station or a 15 minute walk.

Lastly, we thrive on feedback and suggestions only in this way can we continue to enhance the beauty of this retreat space. If you rent with us know that you can contact us anytime to assist in making your stay delightful. If anything is unsatisfactory please inform us immediately so it can be addressed. Informing us after your stay does not allow for a refund.

Where you’ll be

Philipstown, New York, United States

Right across the street is a historic home with 50 acres and horses. The Garrison Cafe is within walking distance in case you need a quick cup of coffee. If you like to run there are dirt roads for a quiet country jaunt.

Peace, tranquility, and calm are important to preserve this listing. This area is residential which means there are neighbors although you can't see them they can hear you. Loud sound has to be turned down in accordance with the noise ordinance. Dinner level music by the pool ONLY. If your group needs to be loud, and wild do it inside with the windows / door closed or this may not the place for you.

I am an entrepreneur as well as a health and wellness, consultant and coach. I have authored three books called " How to Stay Sane When Life isn't Tools for the Mind, Body and Spirit." Vacationing is one tool I use to stay sane. Travel affords me the opportunity to step away from my life to step into my life. The monastic quality of voyaging fosters traveling light. Have you ever noticed that when you travel the most serendipitous things occur, well these occur everyday in our lives as well. Whether or not we stop to take note is another story. I hope you enjoy the wonders of traveling light and sharing in the gift of this retreat space. It was created with the sole purpose of having fun with friends and family.

During your stay

Interaction with guests are kept to a minimum unless of course you need assistance. Whenever possible I do a walk through of the property creating a lay of the land. Otherwise we can accomplish the same walk through over the phone. Also a white binder has the house notes which you can resort to if any questions arise. Also the notes will be sent via email to share with the group prior to your arrival.

Given some recent changes to the rental policy, Proprietor may come, go and stay in the red/ gray building. Although we are sometimes on the premises, the house, and amenities are yours.... ENJOY !
