The Perfect Get Away
I was traveling for work and needed a quite place I could get work done while I wasn't on-site for my job. This was the perfect get a way to do that! Cozy, Comfy but with all of the necessities :).
Cozy, quaint, and clean!
We really enjoyed our stay at the carriage house. The grounds were gorgeous and the view of the Hudson River was incredible. The kids loved playing in the fields, visiting the animals, and riding their scooters throughout the estate. The house itself is cozy and clean. The owners were very responsive and friendly. We have no complaints and highly recommend the carriage house!
How fun to stay on what was originally part of the estate given to the Livingston family by the British crown - not the original manor home which is just down the road, but part of the evolution of the land, and home to a splendid manor house of its own!
The little red gate house was a charming place. We were greeted with a beautiful fresh flower bouquet on the table and a sample of honey made on the property. It was a hot and sticky Labor Day weekend but the bedroom air conditioner units kept us comfortable. Wild turkeys came to visit us in the morning and we walked the grounds in the evening to watch the sun set behind the mountains across the river. It served as a beautiful home base to explore the surrounding area!
A Great Stay on a Beautiful Property
Dana was a wonderful host. We could not imagine a more beautiful setting for our wedding. The entire experience was laid back and comfortable. We had family stay on all three properties on Southwood the weekend of the wedding and they loved it! We would highly recommend staying or getting married at Southwood!
Our son had his wedding on this property and the immediate family of both bride and groom stayed directly on the property in what we called the big house - the mansion and we shared the gate house with our married son and Daughter-in-law and grandchildren. We were provided a golf cart to get back-and-forth to the mansion from the gate house that we stayed in. My granddaughters loved driving around the property in the golf cart. Gatehouse was charming and brought you back in time. We had an awesome weekend!

About Dana Perry
Our family acquired this 87-acre estate directly from descendants of the Livingston family in 1969. Situated on the the bluffs directly above the Hudson river, the property has unparalleled views of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains. The newly renovated Gate House, originally built around 1860, offers a comfortable place for family and friends to enjoy the peace and quiet of their own private retreat in the woods.
Dana Perry purchased this Cottage in 1969
Why Dana Perry chose Town of Clermont
The Hudson River Valley remains an undiscovered gem, especially for New York City residents looking for the joys of country living just 2 hours away. There are endless delights to be explored in the area - local farms and pick-your-own orchards, eclectic music, theater and dance available at Bard College, delightful towns such as Tivoli, Rhinebeck and Hudson in addition to terrific hiking, kayaking and biking.
What makes this Cottage unique
Walk the property and take in breathtaking panoramic views of the Hudson River and Catskill mountains, especially vibrant at sunset. Visit the horses, chickens and goats. There are abundant deer, wild turkeys, hawks, bald eagles, heron and a variety of other birds, as well as the occasional fox, skunk, possum or turtle sighting. Backyard is set up with grill, seating and picnic table.
