About This Listing
The house sleeps 6 comfortably, 8 in a pinch, in one each of king, queen, and full sized beds, each with their own room. The queen lives on the top floor loft, which is open to the great room on the main floor. That floor combines the living/dining/kitchen areas with vaulted, timbered ceilings, a large outside deck (with grill and patio furniture), and tiled bathroom with clawfoot tub.
The street level floor has a master bedroom (king bed) with its own full bathroom. Next door is a smaller bedroom with a double fold out bed and separate 3/4 bathroom across the hall.
The house is equipped with fast (30 down/2 up) wi-fi, a 42" digital flat screen, Blue Ray DVD player and NetFlix, central air/heat, as well as two gas fireplaces. A lovely and fully equipped kitchen, with its hand crafted copper counters, completes the experience.
Experience the bustle of a tiny, vibrant hamlet surrounded by the beautiful Hudson River Valley countryside, in the heart of Dutchess County. This circa 1850, multi-level, 2500' house was masterfully rebuilt a few years ago, using many original materials, including hand mortised timbers from the original Rhinecliff Hotel.
The house is about a block from the river, affording river and Catskills views.
It is also one block from the historic Rhinecliff Hotel and a wonderful waterfront park, a few blocks from the Amtrak Station (95 minutes to Penn Station), a walking minute to the local favorite China Rose restaurant, and five minutes driving to the village of Rhinebeck, the home of the oldest inn in America, as well as of many shopping and dining attractions, many of which were visited by the guests of Chelsea Clinton's wedding, held on nearby River Road.
Along with nearby Red Hook and Tivoli, Rhinebeck boasts some of the finest dining in the Valley, with Le Petit Bistro, The Local, Mercato, Calico, and Panzur.
Weekday price: $295/night

We will keep the maintenance of the house up. Occasionally things break and malfunction without notice. We will take all reasonable steps to fix them as soon as we learn of them. This may include having to have someone service something during your visit if that is the only time it can be corrected. We will work with you as closely as possible to minimize any inconvenience in the unforeseen chance this occurs.
This house was exactly what we needed for a wedding weekend in Rhinebeck. Delyse was excellent, made getting in to the house very easy, and made sure we had everything we needed. Just a few minute drive to the middle of Rhinebeck, so very convenient location. Only downside was that the mattresses were relatively hard, so be prepared for that if you are used to softer mattresses like myself.
All in all, this is a great place to spend the weekend. Had several friends that had rented other houses in the area for the same weekend, and all were jealous of ours.
We had a great stay at the house. The deck was great for the spring weather we had. Everything was clean, neat, and tidy. Wasn't cable so we missed so pretty big sporting events but that's just a small detail.
The home was just as described. It was beautiful, clean, bright and cheery! We had an absolutely lovely time on our girls weekend and felt right at home. The host (Delyse) was very responsive and the house was stocked with all of the necessities (paper towels, toilet paper, soap, sheets, towels, etc..).
The house has 3 beds, so it really only sleeps 6 people comfortably. There are couches, but I would recommend bringing an air mattress if you have more than 6 people.
The house is about a 2-3 minute walk from the Amtrak station which is extremely convenient if you are coming by train! Rhinecliff is about 2 miles from downtown Rhinebeck, so you need to drive to downtown (cabs are pretty easy to get). We ate dinner at Market Street restaurant and it was delicious.
My only complaint about the house was that the mattresses are not very comfortable, but other than that we had a lovely experience. We would definitely go back to visit!
Four of us had a weekend escape from New York, staying in this beautiful cottage in Rhinebeck. The home is well appointed, and is just as lovely as the photos suggest. It is in a beautiful part of Rhinebeck and is the perfect place to make home for a few days to relax and enjoy the countryside. As other reviewers have mentioned you can hear the slight whistle of the train as it goes past, however we found this to be a lovely noise - and not in anyway intrusive.
I can definitely recommend this cottage as a great getaway and would have no hesitation in booking it again, should I venture up to Rhinebeck in future.
This house is lovely and the location was perfect for our group. However, it really only sleeps 5 comfortably despite the listing claiming "8 in a pinch." I was glad that we had an air mattress for our extra person -- though no additional blankets could be found anywhere. Also, no paper towels, napkins or hand or body soap were provided in any of the bathrooms, which I wish we would have known in advance because we would have brought supplies with us. Overall, we were generally pleased with our stay.
The house delivered exactly as promised. We enjoyed the proximity to the train (you can hear the whistle from the house, not terribly loudly and it didn't wake us but if you're a light sleeper you might notice it). Parking was a little tricky at times, and the bedrooms (lower level) abut the municipal lot so sometimes the headlights shine into the bedrooms.
The kitchen was well-equipped with cooking and baking supplies. A few necessities (paper towels, tin foil) were missing but there is a Stop & Shop in close driving distance so we just replaced. We couldn't figure out how to work the indoor stove, so like another reviewer, a manual for that appliance would be really helpful. The house was warm on chilly fall evenings, and we had a great time.

About the Host, Delyse
I always had a love for homes and hosting ever since I was a child. Being the daughter of an interior designer and a stay at home mom has led me to the perfect combination of managing beautiful homes and giving the guests a great vacation.
After moving here from Brooklyn in 2011, I found myself captivated by the beauty and charm that Rhinebeck has to offer and love that I can help others experience this unforgettable little town.
