Room in a vintage stone cottage from 1940 with a swimming pool located a few miles west of Harriman State Park in the beautiful lakes region of the Hudson Valley. Spend a few days exploring Bear Mountain, Harriman, Storm King, DIA: Beacon, the wineries or Woodbury Commons. Owner on premises. POOL NOW OPEN!
Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck and watch the animals come through the yard! Great for nature lovers. This 3br 2 ba vintage stone cottage is surrounded by park land and there are only neighbors visible on one side. Lovers of craftsmanship will appreciate the stone fireplace and half timber beams. Many period details and cottage furnishings give it an old world charm.
The bedroom can house 1-2 people on a queen bed and there is a full (shared) bath with great water pressure on the main floor. New high thread count sheets, pillows and towels. The bedrooms are next door to each other. Please be aware of this and make sure it is in line with your privacy needs.
Cable and wifi available for your use. Many phones do not work because of the valley, but there is a house phone and most phones now have a wifi calling setting that will allow them to work.
The world’s least independent cat lives here and will be thrilled that you have come to visit her.
Light breakfast items provided. No additional cleaning fee. I look forward to meeting you!

Light kitchen use permitted for light food prep only. No meal preparation. Small amount of fridge space for your use- please ask if you need to bring a lot. Restaurant list provided so you can make dinner plans while you unpack. Light breakfast provisions provided (toast, jam, yogurt, fruit, coffee and tea, cream, butter and sugar) or you can bring your own. Most kitchen appliances in place for breakfast prep including: coffee maker, espresso maker, kettle, toaster oven, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, blender, dishwasher. Many kitchen staples are already in place as it is a full time home and not a vacation home, such as salt, pepper, butter, cream, oil & vinegar, etc.
The living room with large stone fireplace is a cozy place to relax after a day of hiking or sightseeing. Use of fireplace is allowed and there is cable TV in living room. Chatting by the fire with a glass of wine (feel free to bring your own beverages) or tea is optional but I have very much enjoyed getting to know some of my guests from all over the world.
In the summer, the deck is also an awesome place to hang out. The pool is open and available for use and there are chairs around the pool. There is a grill but please ask about grill use in advance.
There is also a separate living area in the four-season porch to offer us privacy as our hours may be different.

I will be home to show you around and orient you towards the amenities you might need and will probably be interested in knowing something about you but do not require interaction-it's your getaway!
I have very much enjoyed meeting the wide array of travelers who have stayed here and some of my favorite evenings have been spent chatting with guests.

It's an older home. It's not all perfect. There are some quirks.
We take our shoes off in the house to help keep floors clean so slippers are recommended.
As a stone house it's also much cooler than many homes, which is great in the summer so we don't need AC. In fall, winter, spring, I'd recommend an extra sweater. There is a space heater if the room feels chilly.
MOST cell phones do not work here as we are in a valley but I have a house phone and wifi so you can keep in touch.
House has a well/septic system. Please do not flush anything except toilet paper and waste.
Cat on site so not recommended for those with cat allergies.
Please review the check in/check out times before booking. I can be somewhat flexible with times, so please ask. No smoking inside house but OK on porch/deck. Light kitchen use only. If you use the kitchen, please clean up after yourself. As it is a well and septic system, no flushing anything but paper and waste. We take our shoes off in the house, so slippers are recommended. I would hope guests would treat my space as they would treat their own homes. As an air bnb customer, it's what I have done. Deposit required.

Film/TV professional. Very respectful and tidy. Friendly and loves to meet people. A little bit country and a little bit rock and roll!
I frequently work in and around NYC and my schedule can be volatile so I'm not always available to host. Please do not take it personally if I cannot accept your request. Same week bookings are great!
