The space

Charming private duplex space within my home, consisting of 2 Bedrooms (each with queen bed), 1 1/2 bath, living room and kitchen. Private entrance, wide-board floors, fully furnished. Entry level has living room (please note the fireplace is not available to guests due to liability), kitchen, 1/2 bath and one bedroom; second floor has one bedroom and a full bathroom). The bedrooms have air conditioning.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE NIGHTLY RATE is for the use of one bedroom in the duplex space (generally two people in one bedroom) and of course the rest of the duplex space. If the second bedroom is to be used, there is an extra per person rate of $30 per night added to the nightly rate. (If you have any questions about this don't hesitate to ask.)
Communal space includes pool, decks, and garden area overlooking the Hudson River. Wifi and cable TV. Seasonal views of the Hudson River.

Malden-on-Hudson is a peaceful, sweet hamlet 100 miles north of NYC, along the Hudson River. There is a public dock and boat launch within walking distance of the house.(Bring your kayaks!) The morning sun on the river and the moon glow at night is quite special. The nearest village is Saugerties (1.3 miles), a typical Hudson Valley village with good restaurants, shops, book stores, a farmers market, movie theatre, etc. We are near the Saugerties lighthouse - it's an easy hike out to the lighthouse - a perfect spot for a picnic on a hot summer day. Sailing - I advise booking in advance of your stay (Tivoli Sailing is in Saugerties; Hudson Sailing and Ophira Sailing are out of Kingston).
Woodstock (9 miles), Rhinebeck, Hudson, Tivoli, Bard College Fischer Center/Summerscape, and Olana are all within easy driving distance. Also close to many areas of natural beauty including Kaaterskill Falls, Hunter Mountain, Mohonk Mountain House, and an abundance of hiking trails.

Just minutes to HITS on the Hudson - an olympic level horse jumping venue which runs 6 weeks in the summer.

**** The pool is generally open by Memorial Day however it is not a heated pool so swimming is weather-dependent and out of my control.

A cleaning fee and deposit will be added for weekly or longer rentals. Sorry, no pets and no small children - there are simply too many steps in and around the property. Please note that there is a cat in the main part of the house but she does not go into the separate duplex space.

Guest access

Guests have access to the common space in the back garden, the pool, the decks, the outside table under the pergola for al fresco dining, and the lounge chairs and hammock in the back garden overlooking the Hudson River. This area is on the upper level of the property and guests reach it via outside steps.

Interaction with guests

I love meeting our guests and enjoy interacting and assisting them. If it is privacy they desire, however, that's fine too.

Great old home nestled in a quiet spot with great view of the Hudson river. Very easy drive to downtown Saugerties. Awesome place to spend a long weekend with the family and recharge our batteries!

We had the absolute best time at Gilda's place over 4th of July weekend. The view from the pool of the Hudson is truly stunning and Gilda was super accommodating of all of our needs and very easy to communicate with. This was a wonderful way to spend a long weekend--would definitely go back!

Gilda was the best. She was so welcoming and her place is amazing. Great pool and stunning view of the water. The bed upstairs was so comfortable. This should be at the top of your list of places to stay in the area!

Gilda's place was very lovely and as described. The rooms were very nice and cozy. The house is filled with great books. The home is situated right next to the Hudson and you can hear the river as soon as you step out into the yard. It's a great area and would definitely stay there again! I never met Gilda in person but she was easy to communicate with and seemed very nice.

Gilda was a wonderful and communicative (very responsive) host. We loved the listing, as a quiet rustic place where we could make dinner and play board games, and Gilda's place absolutely delivered. The listing is basically half of a house (two stories), with views of the Hudson River from the bedroom (a lovely sight to wake up to). Would highly recommend.

I am an attorney and mother of two fantastic young men. We have traveled world-wide, and lived overseas, but now call the beautiful Hudson Valley our home.
