Inspiration abounds for creative people, or those simply seeking a country retreat with room for family and guests. Have all the space you’ve ever dreamed of within 15 minutes of everything while feeling a world away. Only 2 hours from New York City.

Wonderful and cozy spaces abound in the main house. Nap or read by the fire, cook to your heart’s content, relax on the three-season enclosed porch, or get some work done in the loft space above the living room. Fish or paddle around in the pond – and if you prefer to swim in a pool, you’ve got it! Steps away from the house an inviting in-ground gunnite pool with bluestone surround awaits. There’s also a stone fire pit for chilly autumn days, or stargazing on those endless summer nights. All mechanical systems in the main house have been updated. Additionally, at basement level there’s a 20’x14′ gym/workout space, laundry/utility room, and meditation space.
From the main house, meander down a path and over a footbridge to an amazing 64’x26′ barn with soaring ceilings. Inside, there are 2 bedrooms and a bath downstairs, plus a bunk room upstairs. The extra space is perfect for parties, Airbnb, or even a studio space for music, dance, yoga or art. There are mountain views from the barn, and woodland and pond views from the main house.
The area boasts tons to do, and is just 2 hours from NYC. Just minutes to the charming village of Saugerties, with eateries, galleries and shops. Don’t miss the Saugerties Lighthouse! It’s also central to skiing, hiking, kayaking and just about all outdoor activities that the Catskills and Hudson Valley have to offer. Woodstock is just 10 minutes away, one of the most famous and picturesque small towns in the country, and is home to many artists, writers, musicians and actors with great restaurants, community events, hiking trails, a beautiful Tibetan Monastery. Come see great musicians and performances at Levon Helm’s studio, Colony or The Woodstock Playhouse. (Check out the Escape Brooklyn guide to Woodstock for more ideas!)
