Plake House: Private Pond & Fireplace, Pet Friendly

Home Sweet Hudson

3 Bedrooms - 2 Bathrooms
$250  / night  •  for 7 guests

Kerhonkson, NY, United States

Be embraced by the beauty of this mountain retreat featuring an aerated pond, complete with cabana/swimming dock. Just as romantic as the setting is the warm and cozy 3 bedroom, 2 full bath home with sliding doors that open to views of the pond--fondly referred to as the "plake" (or pond-lake, an ode to the pond’s large size) by those who know it best. The Plake House, as it’s called, features an open great-room with vaulted, beamed ceilings finished with skylights and a stone fireplace with woodstove insert. Foodies--we've got you covered! This property is perfect for an intimate gathering of your favorite friends or family over a delicious meal. The kitchen includes custom open shelving and updated stainless steel appliances as well as a dining area + glass sliders to large BBQ deck overlooking the pond, or plake. The perfect set up for entertaining all year round! Don't cook? If you would prefer to let someone else do the work, we're happy to help you book a private chef to elevate your stay! The former mudroom was transformed into a cabin-style screened porch, another place to enjoy the lay of the land and sounds of nature with a side of coffee or evening cocktail. Other features include wood floors throughout, new appliances and washer/dryer, cooling ceiling fan, water filtration system, cable and an expansive deck with glorious water and mountain views. Nature lovers, rejoice! Take a happy stroll along the mossy trails between the pond and the crystal clear Mombaccus Creek, available to you as a part of this magnificent property. There’s a bench between the pond and creek, just made for enjoying a good book, mindful meditation or doing nothing at all! Being surrounded by a number of large parcels that are abutting State Land, the 1.75 acres parcel feels like a hundred, offering tranquility and privacy for a peaceful getaway. Important Note: The property includes three bedrooms, two with 1 Queen bed each and the third bedroom can be set up as a King bed or two Twin beds. Please let us know, upon booking, which set up you would prefer for the third bedroom. Pet Policy: We allow pets but require a $25 fee per pet. Please let us know if you are bringing your furry friends upon booking so that we can plan accordingly.
