RoTW: Kinderhook Saltbox, $1,550/mo

621 eichybush road kinderhook ny

Check out this wee treasure located about 3 miles from the center of Kinderhook village. The listing says it was a gut renovation, and the designers managed to nail the “old mixed with new” concept just right, combining old rough-hewn beams and supports with sleek white walls and unfussy elegance. And that’s quite a peaceful view from the deck. Lot size is an ample 3 acres. Snow removal and lawn care are included in the rent, but you’re on your own with the utilities. It comes available September 1st. The place has an interesting history, which you can read all about it here in this article in Hudson Valley Magazine. Great story, great property.

And includes a 50-foot salt water lap pool? Well okay, if you insist.

Kinderhook Colonial + Pond, $295,000

We’re leaving Kinderhook this week with a touch of kicking and screaming. We like it so much. And it was tough choosing ithe properties we chose, and although cute Colonials are fairly abundant in the village, this one caught our eye particularly because of the pond/foot bridge area on the property. So pretty and peaceful. We would hang out there a lot.

Nice interior, too: Lots of windows, wood stove in the living room, built-in book shelves. Located about 3 miles north of the village of Kinderhook on two acres off of a country road, and although there are next door neighbors, they’re fairly well secluded behind some trees and vegetation. Otherwise, it’s surrounded by a whole lotta farm land.

Upstater Destinations: Lindenwald/Martin Van Buren Historic Site

Lindenwald, Kinderhook

For those of us who love history, it’s tough to pick just one destination in the village of Kinderhook (Columbia County) to feature, since the village is rife with opportunities to explore and learn about the history of upstate New York. But since we at Upstater not only love history, but more specifically, presidential history, we look no further than Lindenwald, Martin Van Buren’s 125-acre estate in Columbia County.

Van Buren, an abolitionist and president during the turbulent period ramping up to the Civil War, lived in this house after his first and only term as president from 1837-1841. Here at Lindenwald, he ran two presidential campaigns, wherein he was first defeated by William Henry Harrison, and then by James K. Polk (who’s name we can’t even think of without getting this song stuck in our heads). Interestingly, Van Buren was the first American-born president and also the only president to which English was a second language, having been raised to speak primarily Dutch.

Lindenwald was also where Washington Irving spent time while writing The History of New York.

If you’d like a sneak peak before you take the official, Ranger-guided tour of Lindenwald, you can go on the National Park Service Martin Van Buren webpage and take a virtual tour. The estate is just lovely, a must-see for history and drool-worthy house buffs alike.

More information on hours of operation, admissions, and exhibits on the NPS website.
