Peaceful, private and comfortable stay in the country close to local attractions. This guest cottage is in a serene setting just 5 miles north of downtown Chatham in the heart of horse country. Set on 7 acres with two ponds there is ample room to roam and relax. Apartment has a queen size bed, TV, internet, AC, mini fridge, Keurig coffee maker, and microwave. Quick access from the Taconic and I-90 make getting here easy. Short drive to Chatham or Valatie for charming stores and restaurants.

The space
This is a comfortable space for 1 to 2 people and dog friendly. It does not have a full kitchen (no cooktop or kitchen sink), but you will be able to make coffee and tea, heat something in the microwave or keep food items and beverages cold in the fridge. You are invited to enjoy the property. Relax on the porch, take a walk around the ponds or enjoy the screened in gazebo. Parking is available near the guest entrance. It is very accessible with one small step onto the porch. The guest house is at the back of the detached garage and is private with lovely views of the pond. Please let us know if you are bringing your dog so we can make preparations. We want your pup to enjoy his or her stay in the country too.

My husband Peter and I are enthusiastic converts to the Hudson Valley life. We hope our new found love for the area is contagious. We are both certified fitness trainers and enjoy the active outdoor lifestyle available year round as well as the many healthy food offerings from the local farms and restaurants in the area. We enjoy traveling, experiencing local food and culture and meeting people. But we also like being at home - it is a peaceful sanctuary that we enjoy sharing with our friends and fellow travelers.
