Our newly renovated 1873 farmhouse is spacious yet cozy and ready to be enjoyed!
We fell in love with the Hudson River Valley and everything it has to offer including the abundance of wineries, farms, orchards, hiking trails and museums. We love the artistic community in this area and often frequent Dia Beacon, Storm King Art Center, and local galleries and festivals. We have lived across the United States from California, Chicago, Florida, North Carolina, New York City and have now decided to make the Hudson Valley our home. This area provides a coziness and certain slowness that we indulge in as city transplants.
Mark&Whitney purchased this House in 2016
Why Mark&Whitney chose Town of Marlborough
When we found the farmhouse we instantly felt a connection and a duty to restore her to her former glory. The house and property were in quite disarray and we have/are slowly and methodically renovating our way through the house. The house boasts over 7,000 square feet of unique spaces and the grounds have an abundance of cypress trees, meandering grape vines, two ponds and a beautiful stream. The former pool was filled in by the previous owner but we have plans on restoring it soon!
What makes this House unique
When this house was built in 1873 as the farmhouse for a 1000 acre farm they took their time positioning it in the perfect spot, it sits on top of a little knoll, faces east for beautiful morning light and has a large back deck for watching the sunsets. We have restored many of the Italianate details and have kept the color scheme and decor to rustic farmhouse. The house is perfectly situated between Highland, Newburgh, Poughkeepsie, Beacon and Middletown and is a stones through away from some of the best and oldest wineries in the country. The Walkway Over The Hudson has some of the most stunning views of the Hudson River and hiking trails are everywhere. Kingston and Rhinebeck are only about a 45 minute drive north and have an array of farm to table concept restaurants, and the Culinary institute is just across the river.

Damage and incidentals

We had a lovely stay...so welcomed by Whitney & Mark. Very nice touches and we were well taken care of. They were always available for any questions. The property and house are both very special and we could really relax while there. And the beds are super comfortable. The kitchen has everything one needs for cooking. The property is a little gem. We will return!
Third time stay!
...and third great time! Whitney & Mark are great hosts, the house is beautiful and so comfy. The decoration was superb, with a stunning Xmas tree. The house has all the amenities you need, and it was perfect for our dog too! We look forward to stay #4! Carole
Whitney was phenomenal from start to finish. We booked for a 30th birthday weekend and it couldn’t have been better. She met us upon arrival, showed us through the property and had a personalized sign ready inside the front door. Wonderful all around! Thank-you so much for making the weekend so special.
We've had two terrific experiences at this property
We've stayed here twice while visiting West Point (it's about a 35-minute drive from post--but everything seems to be a 35-minute drive from post). We brought a different set of grandparents each time. In our combined rental histories, we've never experienced a cleaner property, especially impressive considering the interior's high level of charm and character. The house slept our seven comfortably, and provides lots of space to spread out for different activities on a rainy day. A superb ambiance in which to relax and visit.
Thanks again, Whitney and Mark, for being outstanding, flexible hosts (with great restaurant recommendations).
Perfect stay, wish it was longer
There were two of us, leaf peeking on a two week road trip. We only stayed two nights, I would suggest more. The rental is so comfortable, well maintained, clean and well stocked. We wanted for nothing. Our hosts were so kind and thoughtful. The space is very large. Bedding is soft and warm, great night's sleep. And another thoughtful touch, live potted plants everywhere!
