This is a big old farmhouse in a beautiful and convenient location - close to town, the Gunks, and exit 18, with neighboring homes blocked by trees, the sound of a creek across the street, and lots of birds everywhere.
Our home has 3 floors of comfortable, spacious rooms, including a huge fully equipped kitchen, cozy den, wrap around porch, 5 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. We have a fire pit in the yard next to the house, plus tons more outdoor space, a garden, and acres of woods.
On the first floor is an entry mud room, a large, fully-equiped kitchen, a cozy den, a music room/office, and a full bath with laundry closet (washer + dryer). The wrap around porch is perfect for morning coffee and relaxing at the end of the day. There's a grill and table and chairs for outdoor dining. The second floor has a half bath, another porch, and 3 bedrooms -- one enormous bedroom ("the master bedroom"), a "suite" with 2 rooms, and a third bedroom ("the art room"). The third floor has 2 more bedrooms, the "yellow room" and the "green room".
Though we love animals we would always need to discuss first, and allow pets on a case by case basis. Please respect our request and ask us!
You will have the entire house to yourself! Plenty of space to cook, relax, and spread out. The kitchen has coffee pot and french press, toaster oven and microwave, blender and nutribullet, and more. The den has a flat screen, vhs and dvd player (no cable but lots of movies and you can connect your computer to watch anything online). Wifi works throughout the house and is easy to access.
We also have a massage table, weights and exercise ball in the den, and other items we are happy to share.
In the music room, we have many instruments, including keyboard and drum kit. We would feel more comfortable discussing use of the instruments first in order to protect their longevity. Please inquire if using instruments interests you.
We will be available via airbnb messaging and phone to answer questions and help however we can.
One weird quirk of the property is there is a warehouse and parking lot behind our house. We find it does not affect our lives, but want you to be aware. In the warehouse is one apartment (our wonderful neighbor), a music recording studio, an artist space, a guy who makes pedal boards, and a business that makes counters. We rarely see them, but when we do they are friendly and it is safe. On the plus side, there is plenty of overflow parking if necessary.
1. No cigarette smoking indoors. We have a wonderful porch and plenty of outdoor space perfect for smoking. Please put butts in ashtrays and empty into outdoor garbage.
2. Leave muddy shoes in the mudroom.
3. Please help us recycle and compost.
4. If you are here on Wed night/Thurs morning and we are not, please take the garbage and recycling to the street.
5. If you would like to use our music equipment and instruments, please ask!
6. Pets and parties/events by special permission only. Please inquire.
Hi! We both LOVE to travel, explore new places and cultures, and practice other languages. We love swimming, riding our bikes, doing yoga, making & enjoying music, dancing, gardening, camping, paddling, cooking, cross country skiing ...
Pete's a music therapist/rock star/astrologer/master smoothie maker, and Halle's a teacher/math ed consultant/artist.
We live and work part-time in NYC and part-time upstate in the beautiful Hudson Valley, which means our Brooklyn apartment is often available, ready for interesting people to fill it with good energy.
We LOVE our apartment and our neighborhood, and are thrilled to share it with others.
