We can’t say enough about Jeanne, Jim and the great cabin they’ve created. Fox Den was perfect for our anniversary weekend in the Hudson Valley. Although it’s attached to their house, the owners offer complete privacy unless you request help (and then they are more than happy to assist). We enjoyed a gorgeous view of the lake and woods on our secluded patio, sharing it only with the adorable chipmunks running around. The chimenea makes it cozy on cool nights. There are 2 kayaks, a rowboat and a paddleboat available to explore the lake. The inside is cozy too, with a gas fireplace facing the sofa and a very comfortable bed. The bed nook and kitchen both have great views through the sliding doors. The patio pergola has a clear cover, so we were able to leave a door open and listen to the rain during the one wet night. Jim and Jean have thoughtfully attended to every detail. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking, and some spices and food items are provided. (The Crackerjacks were much appreciated). They have designed the cabin to be easy to use, whether you are grilling, cooking in the kitchen or just having a glass of wine with a book. The location is also convenient. Once you’ve mastered the country road, it’s an easy drive to Red Hook or Rhinebeck for restaurants and shopping. Milea Estate Vineyard was nearby and a great excursion too. Fox Den is a perfect retreat – Thank you Jeanne & Jim!
