The Area

Willow Vale House is on the outskirts of Pine Plains, NY, a quaint town in the Hudson Valley where Dutchess and Columbia Counties meet. The house is a short 5 minutes away from several town amenities including a grocery store, a bank, post office, and the historic Stissing House restaurant. Pine Plains is also home to Stissing lake beach, just a short 15 minutes from the house by bicycle and 5 minutes by car.

The Hudson Valley is also home to an endless list of incredible small towns in every direction, each with great restaurants, boutiques, antique shops, farm stores and markets, and so much more. The drive from NYC can be as short as one hour and forty-five minutes, but typically it’s just over two hours.

The Metro-North and Amtrak trains also run between Grand Central and Poughkeepsie or Wassaic, NY, where you can take a car service or rent a vehicle.
