The SpaceThe house sleeps 6 comfortably, 8 in a pinch, in one each of king, queen, and full sized beds, each with their own room. The queen lives on the top floor loft, which is open to the great room on the main floor. That floor combines the living/dining/kitchen areas with vaulted, timbered ceilings, a large outside deck (with grill and patio furniture), and tiled bathroom with clawfoot tub.
The street level floor has a master bedroom (king bed) with its own full bathroom. Next door is a smaller bedroom with a double fold out bed and separate 3/4 bathroom across the hall.
The house is equipped with fast (30 down/2 up) wi-fi, a 42" digital flat screen, Blue Ray DVD player and NetFlix, central air/heat, as well as two gas fireplaces. A lovely and fully equipped kitchen, with its hand crafted copper counters, completes the experience.
Experience the bustle of a tiny, vibrant hamlet surrounded by the beautiful Hudson River Valley countryside, in the heart of Dutchess County. This circa 1850, multi-level, 2500' house was masterfully rebuilt a few years ago, using many original materials, including hand mortised timbers from the original Rhinecliff Hotel.
The house is about a block from the river, affording river and Catskills views.
It is also one block from the historic Rhinecliff Hotel and a wonderful waterfront park, a few blocks from the Amtrak Station (95 minutes to Penn Station), a walking minute to the local favorite China Rose restaurant, and five minutes driving to the village of Rhinebeck, the home of the oldest inn in America, as well as of many shopping and dining attractions, many of which were visited by the guests of Chelsea Clinton's wedding, held on nearby River Road.
Along with nearby Red Hook and Tivoli, Rhinebeck boasts some of the finest dining in the Valley, with Le Petit Bistro, The Local, Mercato, Calico, and Panzur.
