- All cabinets that are available for guest access are labeled, "Guest Use". The other unlabeled cabinets are private food storage for us at home.
- Quiet Hours are 10pm - 8am
- Smoking outside only

- Dogs are most welcome and would appreciate cleaning up after them throughout your stay. We ask that of muddy outside their paws be wiped down when entering the home.

This location is amazing: literal steps from the Metro-North and a block away from a perfect little restaurant for breakfast, and right near the lake and really lovely hiking trails. Incredible views from the house. I came with a group of eight friends, and this house was the perfect size, with plenty of bedrooms and lots of warm, comfortable living spaces. The jacuzzi is amazing, even in winter. Two details to note from the listing description, since they might be easy to miss: the kitchen is shared with the host, and there's just one bathroom (that has some older plumbing to figure out). Those didn't create problems, but good things to know going into your stay. All in all, an awesome place to stay for a long weekend!

Christine's home is serene and beautiful. We stayed six people in the entire home and really enjoyed ourselves. Nearby trails are great for hiking and the community is wonderful and friendly. At night we sat by her fire pit and roasted marshmallows. During the day we sat outside on the balcony and watched the trains pass by across the water. A beautiful get away!

This exceeded my expectations for what I was looking for in my nature inspired bachelorette weekend with 9 friends. I was looking for a place with a fire pit and hot tub near trees and accessible by public transportation. Christine hooked us up with massages, facials, and yoga all within the budget I asked for. She was so helpful and thoughtful both in helping me plan the weekend and once we were there! Thank you for a meaningful memory!

My friends and I (total of 8) stayed at Christine's Airbnb for my birthday weekend. We had such a great time! First of all, the Airbnb is HUGE! There was so much space to move around and stretch out (3 floors). There was only one bathroom, but that wasn't a problem for us at all. The house is exactly as described. I wish I made use of the hot tub, but I'll save that for our next stay at Christine's. We also really enjoyed the outdoor fire pit where we made smores. Christine is also so friendly and helpful (and her daughter is so sweet). She was always available to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend booking a session at the pottery studio next door (Polly, the owner of the studio, is absolutely fantastic!) I highly recommend this Airbnb and hope to return soon! :) Thanks, Christine! So happy I decided to spend my birthday with you! Hehe

About Christine

Hello!

I am a massage therapist, intuitive healer and avid folk herbalist and gardener. My 5 year old daughter and I love to share the space we reside in with travelers near and far.

We live in the beautiful Hudson River Valley directly on the Hudson River. Our quaint little hamlet is a perfect respite from day to day life stuff.

I offer massage and healing treatments at our listing - The River House and Spa. We also host spa parties, retreats for up to 12 people and private yoga classes.

We look forward to having you visit our home or maybe we will visit yours!

With Gratitude,
Christine
