An amazing place!
I had a wonderful weekend, in a wonderful place and with amazing people! The place is really magic, and what makes it so special is the people that run it! Thank you!

Wonderful!
This was one of the most unusual places we've ever stayed- a renovated old church, at the same time classic, modern, absolutely spotless, warm, bright, cozy and if you appreciate the arts you are in for a treat as both Julie and Peter are accomplished artists (Julie is a painter and Peter a musician).

About the neighbourhood
Just a block up the hill from us is the Secret Vegan Cafe and down the hill you walk to several wonderful restaurants and bars, a fabulous wine store, gourmet grocery, galleries, as well as more touristy waterfront dining. Kayak rentals and sailing trips are available from our Rondout River seaport access to the Hudson as well as rail trails linking to the Empire State Trail for hiking and bike riding or The Hutton Brickyard for a spa retreat treatment on the Hudson.
Getting around
While you can be perfectly happy schmoozing the local shops and restaurants, hiking the Kingston Greenline and walking on the Empire State Trail or kayaking or sailing on the river close by it is also fun to visit the neighboring towns of Woodstock, Rosendale, Saugerties and the catskill mountains and lakes or cross the river to Rhinebeck or Bard College. For those type of outings a car is recommended although some guests have done the entire stay via Amtrak, Uber and Lyft ;-)
Access
Car advised
How to get there
by train the AMTRAK Rhinecliff station is only 3 miles (as the crow flies) away however you'll need to cross the Hudson 5 miles north of us to get here by cab or Lyft or Uber. The nearest airport is Stewart out of Newburgh or Albany Airport. Kingston does have a tiny airport about 3 miles away from us if you have your own plane ;-)
