Modern one-bedroom guest house on secluded 30+ acre hillside in beautiful Hudson Valley/Berkshire region. Great spot for a relaxing break from the City. Close to hiking, skiing, antiquing, family farms, etc. or just relax by the soapstone wood oven with a book. Sleeps four (best with 2 or 2+ kids) with a queen in the bedroom and pull-out queen in the living room. Simple kitchen (note no oven) with all that you would need for a nice long weekend. Close to Taconic Parkway, 2.5 hours to NYC/Boston.

Interaction with guests

We are often at the main house on the property, which is farther up the hill and can help with any needs you may have. If we are not there, available by text to help. Generally we won't see each other unless it's helpful for you!

Other things to note

A few important points to make sure you have a great stay:
-We have a simple kitchen with 2 countertop burners and no oven. There is a gas grill outside that is good for cooking as well.
-Especially in late Summer/Fall we have noticed a sulfur-like smell from the hot water. We have bottled water available at the house in case you prefer drinking that.
-The internet is a hotspot over a cell phone with limited bandwidth and speed so we ask you to plan for no major usage/downloads/streaming but it works fine for basic use.
-We have a TV and DVD player, but no cable TV.
-Pack n Play and inflatable mattress available upon request.

We have a shared driveway with a neighbor on the other side of the hill so we ask that you only go as far as the guest house so they are not disturbed. Our guest house is mostly used by our family and friends so we hope you'll treat it as they would. Please make yourself at home and let us know anything we can do to help you enjoy your time here.

The house is beautifully nestled up the hill, off the road, which made for fabulous star gazing on their front porch at night. I would definitely stay again.

Beautiful home in an ideal location. The kitchen amenities were much better than led on which was a huge plus! My only complaint was that the walls are not floor to ceiling (more of a lofted finish in the House) so it made it difficult to stay up without disturbing our daughter with noise/ lights on in the living room, while she went to sleep earlier in the bedroom. Otherwise great stay!

We loved staying at Mackinnon's place. It is very very quiet and private, with great morning views out the windows of bedroom and living room. We took full advantage of the wood burning stove, even though it was warm during the daytime, but such a comforting feel and smell with a fire burning. The house is spotless and very well decorated. We'd love to come back and spend a little more time relaxing in the country side.

Brooklyn + Hudson Valley based, but love to see the world. Mom of two little boys. One of the lucky few to be born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin, so I bring a little midwest and a smile wherever I go. Higher than average cheese consumption and have a habit of planning travel around the meals we want to enjoy.
