Address: 125 Stone Rd, Hurley
Description: The Hudson Valley is home to so many cozy lodges, inns, and B&Bs that offer a scenic escape from everyday life. Sweeping panoramic views with vistas full of mountain peaks and fall foliage are sought after by travelers far and wide. Make every day a vacation inside this Ulster County cabin.
This quiet country home in Hurley has a history as a vacation spot. For many years, it operated as a VRBO bed and breakfast for locals and out-of-town visitors alike. Day-trippers and families on weekend getaways came primarily for its proximity to the majestic Ashokan Reservoir, which sits just one mile away. One step onto the deck reveals a spectrum of sights to see. The wrap-around deck allows for sunrises, sunsets, and everything in-between to be captured in full glory. Summer cocktail parties, morning yoga exercise, tons of grilling, and much more await on this rustic terrace.
Inside, the log cabin’s full charm reveals itself. Three immaculate levels show off the home’s unique structure. Spacious vaulted ceilings, wide board flooring, and a gorgeous wooden staircase greet visitors with an immensely warm welcome. The 1,049 sq ft of space is just enough for small families to settle into this vacation home. A massive two-story fireplace completes the atmosphere and keeps the house warm and toasty throughout cold Hudson Valley winters.
Large Anderson 400 Series windows and doors bathe the entire space in natural light. As the seasons change, every phase of vibrant colors are on full display from the dining room table. The petite kitchen is equipped with ample pantry space, granite countertops, a dishwasher, and an oven with a stovetop. When the weather is warm, residents can prepare meals and enjoy them outside for at-home, al fresco dining.
Upstairs, the loft has an extremely comfortable bedroom. Wake up every morning with dawn’s early light pouring through the windows. One look is all it takes to confirm the popularity of this home as a B&B. The natural look of wood panels and log supports is rustic and charming in this cabin.
There is also a main-floor bedroom with even more character. It would be nearly impossible to bundle up in one of these snug and comfortable rooms and not drift off into peaceful sleep. See a dramatic contrast between light and dark wood materials for an absolutely beautiful bedroom.
The full bathroom has its fair share of light alongside a stunning walk-in shower. Down the stairs sits a partially finished walkout basement with a half bath that works great as a guest room, exercise room, or even a third bedroom.
Adding to the space is an oversized barn/out-building on the property. Down the road, this structure has the potential to be an incredible studio, office, or other workspace. There is also Airbnb potential with either parts of the property or the entire home. That was its purpose in a former life, after all.
Asking price: $599,000
