Lovingly updated country house located on the Hudson River in the heart of Athens. Formerly one of the ice houses that lined the river. Close to area attractions combined with the serenity of being on the river. We love it, and hope you will, too!

Der Wohnraum

We are excited to share our home with you! Conveniently located between the Hudson River and one of the main streets in Athens, our place provides a nice riverside respite from busy lives, while still providing walkable access to the rest of downtown Athens.

Directly on the Hudson River - expansive backyard with a deck, a smoker, a grill and a picnic table for use. The property is located on about 1 acre, with a good amount of yard. Although we are right on the Hudson, unless you would like to scramble through brush, you would have to walk to the access point in Athens to dip in the water.

There are 3 bedrooms plus a pullout couch. Two of the bedrooms have queen-sized beds; the third bedroom contains a daybed with two twin-sized mattresses; the couch has a full-sized mattress.

Downstairs features an open floor plan, with a big farmhouse kitchen table for family meals.

Athens' village contains a local brewery (Crossroads) with seasonal craft beers and local foods, a French restaurant, a great breakfast spot, and a high-end B&B / restaurant with a waterfront bar (Stewart House).

Fifteen minutes from Athens is Hudson, NY. Big town center with antiquing, restaurants, grocers, design shops and a burgeoning art scene. Great farmers' market on Saturday morning. Ten minutes away is the town of Catskill, with a great up-and-coming gallery scene, kayak/paddleboard rentals, and all the commerce you could want (Wal-Mart, etc.).

Other local attractions (within 30 minutes) are the towns of Woodstock and Saugerties, as well as many pick your own farms, etc. Lots of area hiking and skiing in the winter (e.g. Hunter Mtn is ~40 min away). A little farther (approximately 1 hour) is the Saratoga race track.

Of note: We have been fixing up the house and there are a few minor things that are works in progress (still needs some paint here and there, etc.). But as can be seen by the photos, it is a very comfortable place to stay. Please also note that we do not have A/C. We have not needed it given the mild climate and are comfortable with open windows and fans, but we realize that may not suit everyone.

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely home! We were there for a weekend get-together with my sisters and my mom, and this house was perfect for our needs. Nicely decorated, clean, and fairly well-appointed, we really enjoyed eating out on the deck and looking at the scenery by the river. It was a great place to relax, hang out, & play games, as well as provide a good location for walking around town. Beautiful views of the river at the Athens Riverwalk. Sylvia was responsive to our needs and kept in contact as needed. Keep in mind that it is an historic home; the stairs are narrow and steep. (My mom is a little older, and had a little difficulty going up and down the steps.) Not a deal breaker, by any stretch, but just good to know. There is a downstairs bathroom, and the pullout sofa bed is pretty comfortable if someone in your party has difficulty with steps. All in all, we had a very enjoyable weekend!

We had a great long weekend at Sylvia's place. The house was well appointed, great view of the river, with easy access to Athens and great recommendations for local places to check out. Would absolutely stay again, thanks Sylvia!

My 5 friends and I had a great stay at Sylvia's house -- the house is warm and spacious and the view from the back porch of the river is amazing. It's about a half hour drive to Hudson, and we enjoyed going out there for dinner one night. The kitchen is large and great to cook in and the dining place is a great place to gather. The large beds were also quite comfortable. Be aware there is no A/C in the home, so it got quite hot while we were staying there in August, but the fans in the upstairs bedroom definitely helped.

Situated on the banks of the Hudson, Sylvia and Josh's house is a combination of Manhattan style and rural peace. It's walking distance to good restaurants in Athens and minutes away from hip Hudson or other river towns like Catskill and Coxsackie.

Sylvia's house is a good getaway for a small group of friends or family. The place matches the description. It gets a little warm as there is no AC, so maybe bring extra fans from home. We were bummed that there's no actual place to swim around the area, but there are kayak and boat launches nearby. Overall, solid weekend getaway.

We stayed for 3-nights in June 2017. The interior photos reflect the property quite accurately, however we felt that the biggest selling point of this property (i.e. the waterfront deck/garden) was unusable throughout our stay. It seemed as though the house had not been visited for some time prior to our arrival. The grass in both the front and rear gardens was overgrown and foliage was encroaching on pathways and the deck itself. There was also uncollected animal poop on the deck. Inside, there were ants in the cupboards, and spiders and insects on the windowsills. There listing showed no pictures of the sunroom, which connects the deck to the dining/living room. This room was cluttered with renovation materials and in pretty poor condition with a collapsing roof and broken panes of glass. We would not have chosen to stay at this house had we seen even a single photo of this room, which also had a very bad smell emanating from it throughout our stay. I contacted Sylvia upon arrival to discuss our issues with the property. She was apologetic and did send a gardener to mow the lawn. We also appreciated that she allowed us to check in to the property early. The home did not have a toaster, so bring your own if required. It was very hot without A/C in all three upstairs bedrooms this time of year, but the fans did help. We were excited to stay based on the reviews, but felt that this property didn’t live up to expectations.

Talya, As discussed, we are so sorry that you were unhappy with our home. As we mentioned, our normal gardener had knee surgery so we were in the midst of finding a new person and got someone to the property ASAP. We were just at our home this weekend and everything is in great shape (and in line with our other guests' feedback). Nicely trimmed greens, no bugs, etc. Best, Sylvia
