Hillsdale House - Prime Berkshires rental near Hudson

Follow a winding, secluded drive up to this charming post and beam cabin on the hillside crest - this is Hillsdale House. What you've found is an upstate country house in a quiet, wooded location. Hillsdale House is great for families, situated on nine acres with loads of room to run around, a swing set in the back lawn and plenty of board games. The wood burning fireplace and pine interiors make this a cozy, year-round retreat, while the lounge chairs on the sun-drenched slate patio also make the house ideal during the warmer months.

Enjoy a modern cook's kitchen with a Bertazzoni gas stove. The open plan kitchen and dining area feature updated appliances and space for several chefs plus the family and friends who will inevitably be drawn to the kitchen while you cook a family dinner.

The ground floor also features a great room with a fireplace and comfy sofas as well as a brand new bathroom with a slate shower. The privacy of the master suite boasts a king size bed with an en suite bathroom, while the two lofted bedrooms include two twin beds each.

The house is conveniently located only 8 minutes from Catamount -- an amazing adventure park in the summer and great for skiing in the winter. Mountain Cats is an excellent kids ski program. Other skiing nearby include Butternut, Bosquet and Jiminy Peak. And, of course, proximity to the town of Hudson offers year-round activities and quality dining.

Outdoor activities include hiking, lakes, biking and swimming. The Hudson Valley Rail Trail runs from Copake Falls to Wassaic. There is swimming in many lakes and pools including Lake Taghkanic and Taconic State Park. Bash Bish Falls is a great hike and a great swim.
