Historic Farmhouse Estate - 1 hr to NYC

Starting From$495per hour
75 Max

Hosted by Orchard

We are a team of 3: mother, father, daughter. We are a family-run estate. We have owned our home for twenty years and watched our children grow up while they took advantage of the outside. Now, Shana, the eldest child, helps Abbe and Jeff to make your stay wonderful. We purchased Orchard Hill Estate, formerly known as the Gladstone Estate, in 1998. The house was built in 1859 and was kept in the family until we moved in. We hope to hold the same tradition and to have our grandchildren live here when the time comes. Abbe is hoping for grandchildren sooner rather than later, but the eldest child, Shana, says she will just have to keep waiting! Since all of the children are now grown, we get great joy in sharing our home with others.

A SHORT INTRO ABOUT US AND OUR HOME: WELCOME TO OUR HOME! It brings us great joy to share our home with you. This is our actual home, and not a hotel or investment property. We are here to answer any of your questions and provide guidance. Your happiness and enjoyment of our home is our top priority. Our home, Orchard Hill Estate is a unique 7,000 sq ft HISTORIC ESTATE built in 1859. The house has BREATHTAKING VIEWS of OPEN SKIES and sounds of nature. Set on over 5.5 ACRES, our historic farmhouse is less than an hour from Manhattan. Close enough to be convenient but far enough to gaze countless stars in the darkened night sky. It offers lots of privacy inside and out. The home sleeps up to 23 adults and has 5 bathrooms. By the way, did we mention that we are PET-FRIENDLY (pet fee does apply)? WHY BOOK? Because we truly care about making your stay special, memorable and relaxing. You're booking both a home and a host who is there for you. AMENITIES 5 high-speed Internet hubs (fast, reliable and can handle multiple connected devices) 2 fireplaces Pool (seasonal) Hot tub (open year round) Firepit Ping-Pong table Pool table (inside the pool house – seasonal) Badminton Small apple, pear, cherry and walnut orchard Stone fountain (seasonal) Wheelchair accessible WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE: Use of our space and all the amenities for the time requested. A cleaning fee does apply to all bookings. This goes towards sanitizing the house but does not go towards cleaning up after you (e.g., doing dishes, cleaning up large messes etc.). This is our home, please treat it as if it were yours. **Listed price and max number of guests: The listed price includes a maximum of 20 people on the property. If your group is larger than that, please let us know and we would be happy to provide you a quote. CORPORATE RETREATS & MEETINGS: We love hosting corporate retreats. Our entertainment room can be set up to tailor your needs so please let us know what you need. The home has HI-SPEED INTERNET HUBS that extend to the grounds. The TV in the living room can be set up to accommodate presentations. Several areas in the home are great for breakout sessions. Please let us know if you are interested in personal chefs or catering services. We would be happy to provide you with recommendations. FILM AND PRODUCTION PERKS: Our home, Orchard Hill Estate has been used for a few film shoots previously. Each area of the home offers different features. In general, our home has over 50 windows, so it is very bright and there is ample natural lighting. You will have access to the whole house and grounds. We also have a rustic barn available. See additional photos by searching for us at: OrchardHillEstate CORPORATE PARTIES & GENERAL EVENTS: Our home is perfect for all kinds of events. During the late spring through early fall, the pool area is perfect for elegant parties of backyard BBQ's. Our grounds are yours to use as well. Inside, we can accommodate 75 people (with tables and chairs) in our entertainment room. Our event space is kept with minimal furniture so that we can arrange this space tailored to your needs. The house is all yours. So if you prefer to cook, you will enjoy our open kitchen. Please use anything as if it were your home. Please note that holding an event at the house may be subject to different pricing and rules/regulations. Weddings and large events take a toll on the home. Even small backyard events increase usage, wear and tear, and our commitment to you. Of note, we only take a small number of weddings per year. *If your event has more than 50 people, we may ask that you rent a bathroom to accommodate additional guests. Please message us about our bathroom policy and whether we would require this for your event. PARKING INFORMATION: We have enough parking for 25 cars. In addition to our driveway, which can fit 15 cars, we also have parking down at our barn, free of charge. Please let us know if you need the extra parking at our barn. TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION: We are less than an hour north of NYC. The easiest way is to drive here. However, you can take public transport. There is a train stop (Harriman), which is 1.8 miles from our house, or a bus (0.5 miles from our house). There are several cab companies and we have UBER. AVAILABILITY: Please message us to inquire about availability before booking.
