The Stanley is a 1840's barn conversion set on a back country lane in central Columbia county, just 15 minutes from Hudson or the Berkshires. The 4 bedroom, 4 bath residence features a gathering room with a woodstove, a huge sunny, cooks kitchen with lots of room for dining, a bedroom and 2 , 3/4 baths on the first floor.
On the second floor there is 1 bedroom with a queen-size, fourposter bed and private bath, plus 2 more bedrooms with a shared full bath. Both bathrooms feature claw-foot tubs. The Stanley will comfortably accommodate parties of up to 8 people.
This is a country retreat with no cable TV or Internet, but we do offer satellite WIFI, games and a great location to relax and enjoy friends, family and the beautiful Columbia county countryside and all has to offer. Furnishings may vary.
Stanley Bate bought this farm, in 1939, as a weekend home and a place to have a painting studio. In the 1950's, Stanley converted the barn into his painting studio and gallery and he lived here until 1972. Stanley was part of the thriving, post-war artist community in Columbia county. Columbia county continues to draw artists from around the world and weekenders from New York City with it's great, natural beauty, year-round outdoor activities and thriving communities, only 2 hours north of the City by train or car.
Consider this a chance to unplug and reconnect with nature. Cell phones and hot spots, depending on your provider, will work here, but take some time to do something other than staring at a 5x3 screen. There is a multitude of options-hiking, biking, a beautiful golf course, great food-or just relax and spend a quiet, or not-so-quiet!- weekend with family and friends.
The house is beautiful, very spacious and perfect for a group and provides a roomy feel while giving guests a sense of privacy. The kitchen and the bedrooms, especially those on the second floor are very large. The full bathrooms on the first floor provide options for those who may not be able to navigate the claw foot tubs in the second floor bathrooms. AC in the second floor bedrooms was a real plus during our August stay. The property is beautiful and provides a nice space for gathering and relaxing. Overall, this is a very nice property and I would recommend it to others.
the house was great everything went fine except only a little incident.
We brought extra guests and the owner of the house charged us we think unfairly too much and the worst thing we didn't get a receipt.
My sister in law wanted to surprise us and showed up for the 4th of July weekend and did't know that we had booked a vacation,so instead of cancelling (which was easy for us as we had purchased a cancellation policy)we decided to bring her and her daughter with us.
We had an air mattress and that was fine.The kids were having a great time when he shows up(while we were out only my niece was there) and told her we should all leave or pay double for the extra people.
That was OK with us we had to pay or leave ,but the way he delivered to us was really rude.
Anyway we paid and continued to enjoy the rest but I felt really hurt and my guests wanted to leave.
We had rented before and had extra people but nothing had happened.I rented the house ,what if I showed up less?would he return the money to us?
The day we left he was happy the way we left the house clean and everything in order.
I wanted to warn you about other guests because he mentioned that it had happened to him before ,so we think he was used to over charge for the house and make some extra money(altogether almost 22 hundred dollars).
All in all we had a great time and will book again but we have to be careful and read reviews carefully.
Wonderful cozy building and beautiful backyard. Owner very helpful. Our 3 families had more than enough room and really enjoyed the unique space and its beautiful surroundings.
