Old world elegance meets new world charm in this classic manor house in the picturesque Hudson River Valley. Step into history at Windrift Hall, a tastefully restored 1790s Federal Style Manor house with a private pond.
Nature is all around you on 14 acres of meadows, gardens and a creek. Your room comes with a delicious French breakfast with home made preserves.
CHECK-IN AND OUT TIME:
Check in and out time is usually noon, but we’re flexible. Please let us know in advance what works best for you.
Well behaved dogs are permitted. Pet owners are responsible for cleaning up any/all pet refuse.
This is a non smoking house: So please smoke outside.
WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS:
You have wireless internet access throughout the house and within a certain range outside. Please log into our free account at FRENK.
WATER AND SEPTIC:
The septic system is very effective; however, it will clog up if improper material is flushed. DO NOT FLUSH anything other than toilet paper. No feminine products should be flushed at anytime. If it is found that any improper material has been flushed and clogs the septic system, you could be charged for the plumbing services needed. We have a new instantaneous hot water system, which takes about 20 seconds to heat up. Just turn the faucet on and wait a bit.
HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING:
In winter the house is heated and pre-programmed for your entire stay. No need to change the thermostat.
In summer the thick walls together with a clever design of natural air conditioning create a cooling effect in the entire house. Just leave the door of the basement open, so cold air can circulate from the cellar into the attic and provide pleasant temperatures throughout the house. In addition we have a few external electric fans for your convenience. Usually temperatures are 10 degrees cooler upstate than in the City, so overall it's quite a difference.
You’ll find fresh sheets, duvet covers and towels in every room.
Enjoy the pond for swimming. It’s a fresh water pond with perfect temperatures on hot summer days. In winter you can ice skate at your own risk, just make sure there were freezing temperatures for at least 2 weeks before you step on the ice.
There are deckchairs and chaise lounges throughout the property.
