About this property

Stay at Sparrow House: A Cozy, Waterfront Retreat in the Hudson Valley

Adults-only vacation home in Cornwall with fitness center
Wake up to stunning views of the Hudson River and the Hudson Highlands in this huge, immaculately clean, & beautifully designed historic home. Welcome to Sparrow House, our one-of-a-kind 1850s Gothic Victorian in the Hudson Valley. Only 80 minutes from NYC, 19 minutes away from the Beacon stop on the Hudson line (Metro-North), and 10 minutes from the Salisbury Mills/Cornwall stop on the Port Jervis line (NJ Transit). The house is spacious, has exquisite light, and river and mountain views from nearly every room. Sparrow House sits on 2 acres of lush property with stunning waterfront views, and is conveniently located near the Storm King Art Center, West Point, Breakneck Ridge, Bannerman's Castle, hiking trails at Black Rock Forest, and Storm King Mountain. A short drive to Beacon and the Dia Museum, orchards and wineries. Sparrow House was built by Captain Leonard P. Clark in the 1850s along with many of the surrounding cottages (and even a waterfront bowling alley!) Captain Clark was a shipbuilder who built and rented schooners for guests summering in Cornwall-on-Hudson but he lived at Sparrow House with his wife and two daughters. The house now functions as a space for creative retreat, exploration and community. We host many writers, musicians, artists, filmmakers and nature lovers; the serene landscape has been a repeated draw for many. The house is mysterious, romantic and full of character. Suitable for large groups or small. We find happiness, music, storytelling and tranquility here and we hope you will too. This listing is for the full house. It is a massive, three-story Gothic Victorian and comes complete with 4 bedrooms, 3 additional sleeping areas and 1 large bathroom with a clawfoot tub. Note that this listing can hold up to 12 people. Please contact me if your listing is above this number and we can discuss on a case-by-case basis. Please be aware that there is only one large bathroom. (We are renovating the house at the end of the year and will be adding two more). You are a quick a 19-minute Lyft/Uber ride to the Beacon Metro-North train station, and all the restaurants and museums along quaint Beacon’s Main Street. There is also parking for numerous vehicles. The house was designed as an artists' retreat; a quiet place to imagine and create. Original Victorian design and antique pieces live next to the all the modern amenities you could ask for. Each of the bedrooms is decorated to provide guests with their own unique experience. The home includes: -A cozy living room with a 50" TV. Feel free to watch any DVD from our library of films, documentaries and TV shows or enjoy Netflix, Hulu, HBOGo and other streaming services. -Full, modern kitchen outfitted for making whatever you like (yes, there's a dishwasher) with a large dining area. -Five bedrooms, two couches and two air-mattress in the library, loft and living rooms -Bathroom: 1 giant bathroom with a claw foot, soaking tub - A Screening Room complete with a full-wall movie projector for Netflix, Hulu, HBOGo, and other streaming services. -There is a washer/dryer that may be used by guests staying at least four nights. -Unbeatable river-front location, creating a quiet nature-filled retreat, close to all the best spots in the area. -Tivoli Radios in every bedroom. -Blazing fast Wi-Fi Internet. -Touchpad smartlock for keyless entry and effortless check-in and coming-and-going. The Bedrooms: Each of the bedrooms is lightly themed and decorated to provide a different experience. -"The Map Room” (Queen) -"The Woodland Room" (Full) -"The 80s Room" (Full) -“The Film Noir Room” (Queen) -“The Loft” (Queen) - "The Library" (Queen) - "The Screening Room" (Sectional Sofa) Couches and air-mattresses provide additional sleeping areas in the Screening Room, Loft and Library. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: Q: Do you accommodate shoots or events at Sparrow House NY? A: Booking Sparrow House NY on VRBO is for overnight vacation rental ONLY. Shoots and events must be booked separately through Sparrow House Shoots. Q: Do you provide towels, linens and toiletries for all guests? A: We provide these for all guests and include hotel-size toiletries. Q: How will I receive the key and how many keys will I get? A: The house features a keyless entry system with a code that lasts as long as your stay. This allows for effortless check-in and entry for your entire party. Q: Is the place professionally cleaned between guests? A: Yes, and we take pride in providing a clean home for guests. Q: Should I include children when entering the size of my party? A: Yes. And please enter infants as "children" and not "infants" if VRBO gives you the option to specify (this seems to only pop up for some users). The party size needs to be registered with our insurance company and children count as people to insurance. Also, please understand that all listed "extra person" charges are a function of the increased cost to insure larger parties, including children and infants. Q: I am looking for a last-minute stay. Can I make a same-day booking? A: If you're looking for a same-day booking and the place is free, please inquire and we'll try! It depends on whether our cleaning crew can accommodate last minute, which isn't a sure thing. For same-day bookings, check-in may also have to be later than the listed time in order to make sure the place is ready. Still, can't hurt to ask! Q: What's my total booking price? A: With fees included, VRBO only shows the guest, and not the host, the total cost. This figure should be present after you enter your dates. Note that, pricing varies on a daily basis, and VRBO uses their own algorithm to adjust it automatically, so we don't control it.
