Stay in my fully renovated 1860 Saltbox house in the heart of Dutchess County. It is located approximately 2 miles off the Sylvan Lake/Hopewell Junction/Beekman Road exit off the Taconic State Parkway, directly on Beekman Road in the hamlet of Beekmanville, with its 7 historic houses and an old stagecoach stop nestled close to the road from the days when horses and buggies were all the transportation people used. It is located approximately 12 minutes from the Pawling Metro-North Station, and you could take a taxi here, but you would need a car to get around. There is an Enterprise car rental facility in Pawling that will pick you up if you arrange it in advance. It is also VERY easy to get here by car from NYC: 1.5 hours north on the Taconic. I am less than 3 miles from the exit, on the same road the exit is on.
Available for short- or longer-term rental. PLEASE NOTE: ONLY LONGER-TERM RENTALS CONSIDERED FOR SUMMER 2017 -- 3 week minimum, 10 week maximum, beginning July 1, 2017.
There are three bedrooms in total: one downstairs with a full-sized bed, and two upstairs, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds. Comfortably sleeps up to 8 people , if one person stays on the couch, and another on my twin air mattress. There is one bathroom with both a standing shower and a separate tub. The kitchen is fully equipped with All-Clad pans, sharp knives, and spices galore. The large patio, accessible through the sliding French-style doors in the dining room, has both a gas BBQ and a fire pit. The living room also has a wood-burning stove, which is very cozy in the winter. The house sits on almost 5.5 acres, and the Fishkill Creek bisects the backyard.
The house has WiFi and two televisions with Roku boxes — already set up with Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Youtube, and more. There is no cable television. There is a Verizon cell phone signal booster inside the house. Sprint has service here without it.
You will have full use of the house including kitchen amenities such as spices, oils, butter, etc., as well as keyless entry with a coded door lock, access to two bicycles, and plenty of local information and help. I have lived in the area for over 30 years. I am also available for hire as a private guide/chauffer. Please email for details.
Children and small, well-behaved pets and are allowed.
