Car-Free Country House: Rhinecliff Cottage, $439,000

1 vanderburg street rhinecliff ny

A bit steep for a 1 bed/1 bath? Perhaps, although this property does include two additional guest cottages, which might make the price a little more doable, particularly for someone looking for a place right next to the Amtrak station in Rhinecliff. We love the look of it. Very cozy and rustic with a sweet kitchen that includes butcher block counter tops and plenty of shelf space. We’re curious about the extra guest cottages, since the listing does not include photos of the interiors. The property is pretty: Lots of green and a shaded yard. In case you don’t know the score with Rhinecliff, there are a couple of restaurants near the train station but no place to grocery shop, unless you count Montgomery Place Orchards, which is about two miles away in Red Hook. But it’s a seasonal market, and this year, it shut down on December 8th. When will Rhinecliff get themselves a food store? Inquiring minds want to know.

Upstater Destinations: Three Memorial Day Weekend Events


Yes, please.

If we attempted to innumerate all of the Memorial Day weekend events starting on Friday, we’d be here until next Memorial Day. Instead, we decided to pick three fun happenings we think you will enjoy as you officially kick off the unofficial start of summer.


Opening Day of the Saugerties Farmers Market, May 25, Main Street next to the Kiersted House (GMAP)

The Saugerties Farmers Market is always a good time, even if you don’t buy anything (and you will, believe us). And the folks who run it sure know how to start things off with a bang every year. This time around, the Farmers Market will have live music, chef’s demos, a kids’ arts and crafts table, and free soil testing by Cornell Cooperative Extension. And we all know that nothing says summer fun like free soil testing! Check out the list of upcoming events and the full roster of vendors on the Saugerties Farmers Market website.

Hudson Berkshire Food and Wine Festival, May 25-26, Columbia County Fairgrounds (GMAP)

If the Farmers Market just isn’t enough delicious, locally grown food for you, head up to Columbia County to the Food and Wine Festival. Whether you’re hankering for a hunk of spicy cheese from Worldling’s Pleasure or a bubbly glass of Blanc de Blanc from the Hudson-Chatham Winery, you’re going to find something yummy. Tons of chef’s demos are scheduled for the day. You can take a look here on the festival website.

Rhinebeck Antiques Fair, May 25-26, Dutchess County Fairgrounds (GMAP)

Had enough to eat? Now spend what’s left of your money on cool, old stuff. With more antiquities dealers than you can shake a stick at, the Rhinebeck Antiques Fair is a popular event around these parts. Parking is free for this event, but leave your pup at home since the fairgrounds are a pet-free zone. Find out everything that’s going on those two days on the antiques fair website.

If these selections don’t quite tickle your fancy, take a gander at Chronogram’s massive Memorial Day weekend events calendar. Oh, and make sure you just ignore the weather forecast. Trust us on that one.

Rental of the Week: Rhinecliff Riverfront Studio, $1,675/month

19 grinnel street rhinecliff ny

Looking for a place to hole up for the summer so you can finish writing your book? We think this would be the perfect spot to do it, and when you need a break, you can just mosey out to enjoy the Hudson River to clear your head. It’s a small studio/loft, just 800 square feet, just a few steps away from the Rhinecliff Amtrak station, with oh-so-high ceilings, which lends an airy, open feeling. Downright inspirational, even, if you need those creative juices to flow. We know the area well. It’s quaint, quiet, and easily-accessible via train. Beats the heck out of locking yourself in a dingy room at the Hotel Earle with naught but your portable Underwood, a la Barton Fink.
