Cozy Modern Artists Upstate Getaway

House - Entire home/apt · State Highway, Hillsdale, NY 12529, United States

The Space

A beautiful, modest, and well-appointed getaway in New York's Columbia County, adjacent to the Berkshires and the Hudson Valley.

The house is a small "eyebrow colonial" (the earliest parts built in 1807), with 800 square feet over two floors. There is a comfortable, brand-new pull-out sofa, and a lofted bedroom. The bathroom has been recently remodeled and the sit-down shower is a dream. It has a full kitchen, and a separate small 3 season dining room. It has all of the accommodations of a house, but with the feel of a cozy country cabin.

Perfect for people who like nature with many state parks within 5-10 miles, and outdoor activities, but also for those who might like to catch a movie at the local triplex, or enjoy a nice meal at one of the well-regarded upstate/Berkshire restaurants...or both. The house is right on a main road, which makes it easy for trips to nature or culture.

The house is centrally located, and easy to find. Very close to the center of town, with the new Crossroads restaurant, grocery store, etc. Also in Hillsdale is our personal favorite, Rodger's Book Barn, which, for self-respecting bibliophiles and casual readers alike, is simply not to be missed.

Hawthorne Valley Farm and Farm Store are about 15 minutes north of the house, with other farms and farm stands all around. The quaint and welcoming town of Great Barrington is also just down the road a piece.

5 minutes to Catamount Ski Area
15 minutes to Great Barrington, MA
20 minutes to Millerton, NY
35 minutes to Hudson, NY
45 minutes to Rhinebeck, NY

Close to many swimming holes, trails, state parks, etc. including Bash Bish Falls

Day trips to MassMOCA and other Berkshire destinations

35-40 minutes to MTA/MetroNorth Wassaic train for guests (car recommended), 25-30 minutes to Hudson Amtrak

The house is not appropriate for small children (see pictures of sleeping loft), but would work for an infant. If you have pets or kids, we recommend our lovely neighbor, 7 Willows B&B

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Sara and Kyle were well-organized and respectful of our time in setting up the visit. They also communicated very well throughout our stay. Their cozy home is a fantastic place for a getaway, especially for a couple. It is located in a quaint town with a few good shops and cafes, and is just a few miles from GB and skiing. The home is very clean and a perfect spot for a getaway!

  • We had a great time up at Sara & Kyle's place and will definitely be returning! It was just what we needed - a weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of NYC. Their home is cozy, well appointed, and truly perfect for a retreat. We felt the stress melt away within minutes of stepping through the door. Has everything you could need - we cooked and stayed in all weekend, read, listened to their awesome record collection, watched movies... The bedroom is up in a cozy but spacious loft; renovated bathroom with great shower; kitchen has all you need. Hillsdale, the village center, is just up the road with a market, wine shop, general store and a restaurant. Kyle was incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating. Highly recommend!!

  • Fabulously cozy cabin with all the modern amenities. Our family could not have been more comfortable throughout! And we will definitely be back soon.

    Sara was phenomenally accommodating, and even drove up from Brooklyn to make sure that everything was OK. She went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that everything was perfect. And even bought us coffee!

    Many thanks again for everything,

    The Adamsons
