Comfy, cottage in upstate NY with cozy sleeping loft, full kitchen, private bath, and fold out couch for two. Sunny "wrap around" terrace; 1 hr train ride from NYC. 2 miles to train/ shopping/restaurants. Romantic wknd getaway or convenient, NYC sightseeing. Relax in the country, a stones throw from apple picking/biking/hiking/and fall foliage! Beautiful grounds, and awesome patio with natural furniture to soak up sun or have a glass of wine. Full use of main house wrap around porch.

The space

The cottage is situated above our garage, which is separate from the main house. It has its own private entrance, and "wrap around" patio with chairs and table for relaxing outside. A spiral staircase leads to the sleeping loft which overlooks the living room below. The cozy double bed makes for great snuggling, and the fantastic tub provides enough room to relax after a busy day of sightseeing in Manhattan, or apple picking in one of the orchards only 20-45 minutes away. The refrigerator has coffee for your use and the kitchen is equipped with serving for 4. There are some pots and pans as well if you decide to cook, as well as other cooking utensils, wine glasses and a cork screw!

Guest access

The main house has a wrap around porch which you can utilize at your leisure. Also, please visit the flower garden on the front side lawn. At the top of the hill is another patio with natural, handmade furniture which is great for lounging during the summer and fall.

I stayed at Ellen's place for 3 months and I've found more than I expected: super lovely house (full of everything), fantastic nature and lovely houseowners. You can cook, watch HD TV, play ukulele, listen the sound of nature and barely need the help of Ellen/Angel because they made everything ready for you. They also arranged the cleaning lady once in a week who also did my laundry which was not even mentioned in Airbnb. You can understand that their primary concern is making you comfortable, therefore I definitely reccomend everyone who is seeking a nice quiet place in nature. Thanks for everything Ellen, I hope I'll be back again soon :)

Ellen was welcoming, kind and very accessible. We later met the rest of the family. All were just a pleasure. The cottage was lovely, clean, and just what we were looking for. Beautiful and peaceful, even better than the pictures.

Ellen & Angel are a very nice, well traveled and very social couple! They have a lovely property, with beautiful grounds, well tended gardens and a charming cottage. They were welcoming and very helpful. The Cottage was exactly as described, quite comfortable and great for a romantic getaway weekend or for a short business trip. It's quiet and private and contained most amenities one would expect. I would not hesitate to stay there again, when in the area, and would highly recommend this property!

The cottage was great. Super cozy and cute with access to a big garden for the dogs to play. It was a perfect stop after a long flight. Ellen and Angel are very friendly and made sure the cottage was well stocked. The location is very convenient for getting to Mt Kisco town as well as on and off the highway. Despite the accessibility, its also very quiet and feels like a little retreat.

I am from NY and an advertising professional. My husband is from the Canary Islands of Spain (Tenerife) and he is a contractor who has built every inch of our home, inside and out! We have three amazing kids who are either in college or living on their own. Angel and I love being outside, gardening, walking, traveling, cooking and entertaining. Our home has always been the sight of some amazing get-togethers, as our wrap around porch and backyard are perfect for relaxing. We speak Spanish and English and love to travel. In fact, we believe the absolute best education is traveling and meeting all different types of people. Are home is a mixture of cultures, and religions... and we are richer for it!
