When you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, this New Lebanon home is the perfect choice. You’ll not only leave the hectic city behind – stepping through the doors feels a little like stepping back in time. This home is 150 years old, and was a Shaker workshop. It’s on the National Registry of Historic Places and has been beautifully renovated to emphasise its history. You’ll find Shaker details like wide board pine floors, and the paint colours used are all accurate to the era. The history of a former Shaker settlement is evident at every turn, but modern convenience has also been considered. Everything you might wish for has been taken care of, so your stay will be comfortable as can be. The home is stunning. Elegance and historic charm come together in every stylistic detail. There’s plenty of room for everyone to gather together, whether it’s for elaborate meals prepared in the attractive kitchen, or around the fire pit for marshmallows and spooky stories. You can look forward to mesmerising views of the Lebanon Valley, and can explore the area on foot. There’s a forest and meadow that are ideal for hiking, as well as a nearby pond and waterfall to visit. The remoteness makes this a wonderful base for a relaxing stay. Though when you feel adventure calling, you can easily answer by driving to Berkshire and the Hudson Valley, where you’ll find plenty of restaurants, shops, and theatres.

About Claverack

While Upstate New York is used to being overshadowed by the city, a trip up the Hudson brings you to some charming towns and beautiful scenery. The slower pace of life here is an excellent antidote to the frenetic energy of Manhattan and Brooklyn. The lush, ever-changing landscape is an attraction in itself, but the towns of the Hudson Valley offer a healthy dose of culture and history. This area...
