Elegant, spacious, farm house, with beautiful views of the Berkshire mountains! Perfect getaway for a memorable hiking, fine dining, shopping, or just RELAXING vacation, with friends and/or family. Accommodates 10

The space
Situated on 260 hillside acres, you will feel miles from civilization, but when the mood strikes, find yourself just 20 minutes to high-end restaurants and shopping in either Hudson, NY or Great Barrington, MA..not to mention the charming little hamlet of Hillsdale itself, with a few choice stores and restaurants of its own!

Tastefully decorated, this newly renovated Colonial sits apart, on what was once New England's most renowned Arabian horse farms, now a restoration project, but lacking nothing in the natural beauty of it's majestic landscape! Horses still roam the lush green pastures, adding to the charm of this country destination. Replete with all the necessary amenities, perfect for a family or a small group of discerning adults, we are excited to welcome you to The Orchard House - our home-away-from-home, in a remarkably beautiful location, sure to create wonderful memories!

Please Note: Our base rate is for 4 guests only, additional guests are charged per night, so different size groups all pay an appropriate rate. Check quote for specifics, thanks!

Guest access
Guests have access to the whole house, and the front and back lawn. The rest of the property is available for walks, but the barn buildings, and horse occupied pastures, are off limits. We look forward to welcoming you on arrival, to answer questions, and provide you with a house key.

Other things to note
Weather is always unpredictable, bring layers of clothing and sensible shoes. The fourth floor has two trundle beds (sleeps 4) but is accessed via a stair case, leading up from the 3rd floor media room. There is no bathroom on the 4th floor. The media room has a pull out couch that can double as an extra bedroom, but the folks on the 4th floor have to pass through this room, so it's not private. The house is equipped with A/C in all the bedrooms and the living room! There is Wi-fi throughout the house.

I'm an upbeat mother of 3, married to Martin, a hard working, wonderful guy! Together we own and operate Markristo Farm, a certified organic vegetable and flower farm, also in Hillsdale, NY. I love growing and designing flowers, and always have a bouquet in my house! We all love horses, and our two girls ride and teach. We love this area of the Hudson Valley/Berkshire Foothills, esp for the great restaurants, amazing theater, and live music...and skiing! We look forward to sharing this beautiful house and great area with everyone who comes to stay at our Farm House!
