About John Ryan

We rebuilt the house from top to bottom over the last 10 year using local natural resources. We have enjoyed these past 10 years of weekend, summer and winter breaks from the city. They have been some of the best times of our lives.

John Ryan purchased this chateau / country house in 2000

Why John Ryan chose Clinton Corners

This location was only 90 minutes from New York City and 1 mile off the Taconic Parkway. The country setting was totally relaxing but there is endless things to do and places to go all within a short distance driving that you could never find in the city.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Sitting back and watching the renowned Dutchess County Sunset on a summers evening. Or walking around the neighborhood as a family with our dog, meeting our neighbors along the way. Getting to know not only our neighbors but the regulars in the local village that have lived there for years but are still welcoming to newcomers. It is always the best place to have a family party, and not only do we enjoy it but our family and friends look forward to their chance to drive up and spend the weekend there, either relaxing or celebrating.

Owner's Response: Thank you , our pool company comes once a ,week to clean and balance the Pool. Our cleaning staff comes after each guest leaves to wash the sheets and towels ,there is always an extra set of bedware in the laundry room. when travelling always bring your own pool towels. the air conditioning has had its mid summer service, sometimes it can get chilly at night please gradually move the dial and reset before you leave. please put away the kitchen ware before you leave, Most of all enjoy your stay at our home.

A perfect getaway in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house of a girls weekend away from husbands and kids and it suited us perfectly. The pool was awesome and that's where we spent most of our time. We cooked a few meals and found the kitchen to be in typical rental order (nothing fancy but enough tools to get the job done). The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space for my group of 6 and the couch was so comfortable, we tried to figure out where it came from. There are neighboring houses but we never actually saw or heard anyone else. We couldn't figure out the Wifi but we also didn't try very hard or reach out to the owners. The surrounding towns are very cute with good restaurants.

Cute cottage, that was lacking.

  • 2 of 5

Pros: Cute cottage. Great location for our needs. Owner is easy to contact.

Cons: Bathrooms all had issues, from having to put towels down to catch the water, to confined space, to sharing the shower with way too many spiders.

Little to no set up of the house prior to our arrival. Information packet buried under takeout menus, did not find right away. Kitchen very lacking in basics, soap, foil, wrap, etc.

If someone was hired to prepare the house for incoming guest, they should be fired. Huge hornets nest overhead on the deck. Pretty sure it was dead as their was at least a dozen dead hornets on the deck. 3 rolls of toilet paper upon arrival. The whole house just needed a good wipe down.

Owner's Response: This is our home and we are very comfortable in it, it is not a 5 star hotel or convention center. After speaking with the guests many times over the duration of their stay , I am amazed , not once did they make a request or complaint regarding any issues in my home other than setting up WiFi .

Absolutely Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have to say - the photos did not do this home justice. My husband and I rented the house for 6 days at the end of July. Unfortunately the weather was cold and rainy, but that did not stop us from using the heated pool. We took advantage of the poor weather and relaxed in the living room area for some TV, and I spent a lot of time in slate floor'd porch reading and relaxing. Our 2 city cats LOVED being outside on the 2 decks, and we immensely enjoyed cooking all of our meals on the grill.

The home was well appointed with every amenity we needed, and the decor of the home was beautiful with the pine floors, and adorable details throughout.

During our stay my parents joined for 2 nights, and friends of ours joined for another 2 nights. Sharing the home was simple, and with 6 people there, everyone had PLENTY of room to relax and enjoy their space, but also be together when we wanted.

We very much look forward to renting this home again!!!

Oasis in wood!

  • 5 of 5

At the moment we arrive, we were under the charm of this property locate in a quiet area.

Just enough big for us (7 adults), home is cozy, get everything you need to enjoy your stay...and what about the heated pool. After a long motorcycle ride, it was an oasis in wood!

As nearest food market or gas station is located around 10-15 minutes from house by car, you need to thing in advance of your needs. Otherwise, if you’re looking for a peaceful stay…choose this property with closed eye.

We will certainly reserve again if we passed by...
