Travel fantasy: The Hudson Valley

Crikey, how rad is this rental house in the Hudson Valley? It's only 2.5 hours from New York City, and the property has three bedrooms, a claw-foot tub, heated towel racks (!), an apple orchard, and a sauna. It would be such a fun weekend escape.

Is the dog included?

Emily Amy Gallery said...

Take us with you! What a killer fireplace, I guess if it's going to be this cold outside, might as well be somewhere with snow this beautiful!

gemma said...

beautiful! definitely not your standard hudson valley cottage.

The Girlie Blog said...

Such a beautiful home! It's lovely.

Although I really want to escape from snow. We're getting too much of it here in Canada! ;-)

Looks so peaceful. Cozy up in front of the fire with a cup of tea and a great book, then I wouldn't mind the mounds of snow falling outside the windows.

Ms. Habit said...

I'd love to get a few couples together and make a fun long weekend of it. Like the Big Chill! (Minus the funeral.)

my little apartment said...

carolyn. tilly | maison said...

ahh if only the puppies were included :)

Alejandra Ramos said...

By the way, I have heated towel racks--they're called my radiators. ;)

Tee said...

It almost makes the endless winter and snowsnowsnow look appealing. And that is saying a lot.

nicole said...

I love this.

p.s. I also love that you said, "la ti da" - my dad says that about fancy-schmancy stuff. tee hee. xo.

Melisande said...

Erin said...

Oh man. I love a sauna.

Joanna Goddard said...

oh yes! the big chill, good call :)

Jovana M. said...

My boyfriend is more into uber-contemporary houses like this. I find it's a bit cold. I love that bedroom, but that's about it! He, on the other hand, would never want to leave. :)

Kyla said...

Gorgeous! When can we go?

Ylenia said...

Nothing says, "I'm not a great building designer" like a post-modern box pimple attached to a traditional house.

swoon! it would be a nice change of pace from NYC.

Melissa said...

Love love love! I'd be making s'mores in that fire place right now!

Various Projects said...

i love the white walls & the light!!! so much light. :)

- Rachel - said...

Definitely amazing, but did you see the price?! It's not so much a romantic weekend away type place as a group outing type one - definitely need to share the cost. If I'm spending $1000 on a weekend trip, it's a) going to be a longer weekend than 2 nights and b)better include airfare!

roberta said...

This house is a dream...

vosges paris said...

Great how the dog is looking outside.. I am not to fond on animals in my bedroom though... I have trained my cat not to walk on the whith floors LOL... sometimes he does go in my room and I hear him miauwing *is that a word?) as if he want to say look I am naughty ;P

I have a valentines give away running and another really exciting one next week! Come over and play ;)

Suite Henry said...

Really love it.
Very cool space. I especially love how simple all the design is!

liz said...

So calming and luxe!

{the hort couture gardener} said...

I'll keep it simple - WOW!!! As an Aussie who has just sweltered in a week long heatwave that snow scene is so appealing! Might be a bit far for a weekend escape though...shame!

Jennifer said...

Thanks so much for the outrageous plug for Ten Broeck Cottage, Joanna! Hits to our vacation rentals site, www.RedCottageInc.com , spiked so much I assumed it was an error. You're right to have chosen that property as the uber-cool stuff of city-dwellers' dreams. It's one of our most popular rentals.

Elisa said...

love the natural source of light!

Natalie said...

Wow! This place is awesome. Right now my boyrfriend and I go to college in PA. We both really want to move to New York City when we graduate (pending actually getting jobs there!) This is just another reason for us to dream. We always talk about everything the city will have to offer, but this makes weekends in the country look just as good. I could imagine him writing in an old comfy chair under one of the skylights, and me taking photos of our dogs playing in the snow. Thanks for sharing!

Architreks said...

Wow, this place looks so amazingly cozy. And the adorable dogs so aptly placed in the photos don't hurt the appeal either...

Reyna @fashionmist♥ said...

Looks amazing! xx

ag. said...

I can't believe how close that is to the city! It'd be the perfect place to vacation without venturing too far away! So cozy!

C said...

well...no clutter...

Kathy said...

Yes, please. :)

Espen said...

This is such a beautiful place!

About Last Weekend said...

Stunning. I could see myself warming my hands and red wine next to that fire. (and the kids throwing balls through the opening...)

Jen said...

can't go wrong with a claw foot tub!

kira said...

Wow, it is so beautiful!

Hannah said...

This is a rental house??

I've been dreaming about this house since I saw it somewhere (don't remember) a few months ago!

crystal glamour said...

Love this fab house! Thanks for the inspiration.

mosey said...

Must go there NOW.

victoria said...

the sight of those wide plank floors make me swoon. and that bathroom is being favorited right away!

Danielle said...

Now that is what I'm talkin' about...a modern home in the country! I own a small cape-cod right outside of DC, it's furnished with vintage items found via Craigslist, consignment stores, flea markets and even the trash. I love my home very much, but I so desire a home in the country that is sparse, bare and empty. Oh wait a second those all mean the same thing. Well, you get my point! I need a place to rest my over indulged mind. A place to get away from my country home in the city. A place to breathe.

Oh and by the way, Toby is to die for cute...that smile reminds me of my son at that age. Hold him close to your heart, as the days will fly by and all of the sudden he will big, but he will always be you're little man!

ink and post said...

woah. beautiful!

Catherine Masi said...

Holy geez. How awesome.
And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one to ask if the dog comes with the place. That white bedroom drenched in sunlight is an extra treat... drool.

Kimber and Casey said...

wowsers! talk about a dream!

Amber said...

I love those wood floors! What an amazing place to vaca :)

classiq said...

I love the design. The white walls, the wooden floors, the fireplace, a wonderful escape!

Heidi said...

I love skylights! And big windows, I could totally live there too, except for all that snow! haha.

Notes from Holly St. said...

gorgeous..looks like the perfect getaway home!

Miyan said...

i've seen heated bathroom floors, but towel racks?? way cool.

you should check it out and let us know how amazing it was, so we can live vicariously through you :)

April said...

I realize this might sound... shallow... (no pun intended, teh heh), but it is seriously one of my life goals to one day have a bathroom like that. And now you've added another-- that fireplace!!

P.S.-- I lived in Sweden from this last October through December, and our apartment had a genius heated towel closet (check the 3rd and 4th posts in my blog archive if you want to know more ; )...) Anyway, about Sweden--you need to go there, girl!

Lindsay said...

beautiful!!

looks like the perfect place to escape from the world for a few days.

Johanna said...

Beautiful dream house!

Davidikus said...

I really like this square modernistish addition to the older looking building! I am not into property porn myself, but I like this architecture.

Thanks for sharing.

Lacey in the City said...

Oh it's fabulous!! I do love escaping to the Hudson Valley after a long week in the city...

Danielle said...

Hah! That dog sure enjoys sitting on the furniture!

Emily G. said...

This cottage is actually IN Hudson, not just in the Hudson Valley. I'm from Hudson! It's come so far - it used to be a desolate sad little town, but now we have a ton of antique stores, boutiques, and adorable properties like this one! Definitely go if you get the chance.

Bronwyn said...

Oh, those skylights!

Catie Voglio said...

I grew up in the Hudson Valley and I am convinced there is no place more beautiful than Warwick, NY about 1.5 hours out of NYC in the fall. Check Sugar Loaf, NY small arts and crafts village right near by. FABULOUS

Desiree Fawn said...

What a gorgeous retreat... my dream home definitely has a fire place just like that in it!

Julie said...

My goal in life --- to have a free standing tub. Love it!

Thanks for sharing these great pic with us. and really gud post.

marisol said...

it is lovely :) too bad we dont have that in Texas :(

Marvin Mills said...

@Miss Gina: LMAO! Yea, is the dog included??
This is a great house inspiration for those who are dreaming of a cozy place to just chill and relax. Reminds me of The Big Chill. It's really cool. That bathroom can be a do-it-yourself I think, since the tub is very simple. As for its living room, building a separate construction for the area is not so common today but very unique. Perhaps we can use Pantone's color of the year which is Honeysuckle.
