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.
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.
Please read the instruction booklet when you arrive. Please treat my home as you would your own and enjoy your time in this beautiful part of New York State. NO DIVING IN THE POOL.
