Summer sun. Cocktails by the pool. Slow days. There’s nothing like summer in Columbia County. Especially when you stay at the Orchard, our beautiful 200-year-old farmhouse! Enjoy old-world charm with all the comforts of modern life. Not to mention short drives to Hudson and beyond!
The Orchard is picturesque and perfectly situated at just 2 hours from New York City. It’s close enough for a last-minute trip, and far enough to feel like you’re on vacation.
About the House
Wide-plank floors and exposed beams show the craftsmanship and detail of early 1800’s construction and design. (While the Nest thermostat and strong Wi-Fi show the focus on comfort and enjoyment.) The house once stood on hundreds of acres of orchard land. Towering old-growth maples, weeping willows, tasteful landscaping, and rock walls remain, transporting you back to those simpler times.
