Just east of the Northern Catskills, find Bargebottom, a 100-year-old home colloquially named after a nearby landmark where wooden barges harvested ice in the 1900s. Fully renovated in 2011, this Saugerties property combines its classic charm and nautical vibes to create an escape along the river. Bargebottom has more than 100 feet of river frontage, along with a dock, personal beach, and a multi-tiered deck perfect for get-togethers. Inside, it’s fitted with a chef’s kitchen, including stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and an undermount sink; the kitchen is close to the patio and deck entrances for outdoor eating. On the first floor, enjoy sweeping, seasonal views of the Hudson River and natural lighting with its four-season room. Use the second-story loft as a workspace — also offering inspiring river views. Other amenities include a first-floor master bedroom, a claw-foot tub, and three gas fireplaces. Outside, explore its many natural perks, like a fire pit, hot tub, and bluestone patio. For any interested boaters, there’s even a furnished boathouse with landscaped steps to a wood and stone pier.

Outside, there’s a climate-controlled greenhouse prepped for seasonal planting, a koi pond, a gunite pool, a hot tub, an outdoor fireplace, and a pizza oven. There’s even an arched brick gate that leads you to Nyack’s Old Erie Path (a rail trail) and the Raymond G. Esposito Trail.
