Availability *Let us know how we can make our home work for you and your group! A SHORT INTRO ABOUT US AND OUR HOME: WELCOME TO OUR HOME! It brings us great joy to share our home with you. This is our actual home, and not a hotel or investment property. We do our best to make sure you are comfortable. We are here to answer any of your questions and provide guidance. Your happiness and enjoyment of our home is our top priority. Our home, Orchard Hill Estate is a unique 7,000 sq ft HISTORIC ESTATE built in 1859. The house has BREATHTAKING VIEWS of OPEN SKIES and sounds of nature. Set on over 5.5 ACRES, our historic farmhouse is less than an hour from Manhattan. Close enough to be convenient but far enough to gaze countless stars in the darkened night sky. It offers lots of privacy inside and out. The home sleeps up to 23 adults and has 5 bathrooms. By the way, did we mention that we are PET-FRIENDLY (pet fee does apply)? WHY BOOK? Because we truly care about making your stay special, memorable and relaxing. You're booking both a home and a host who is there for you.

A cleaning fee does apply to all bookings. This goes towards sanitizing the house but does not go towards cleaning up after you (e.g., doing dishes, cleaning up large messes etc.). This is our home, please treat it as if it were yours. **Listed price and max number of guests: The listed price includes a maximum of 20 people on the property. If your group is larger than that, please let us know and we would be happy to provide you a quote. CORPORATE RETREATS & MEETINGS: We love hosting corporate retreats. Our entertainment room can be set up to tailor your needs so please let us know what you need. The home has HI-SPEED INTERNET HUBS that extend to the grounds. The TV in the living room can be set up to accommodate presentations. Several areas in the home are great for breakout sessions. Please let us know if you are interested in personal chefs or catering services. We would be happy to provide you with recommendations. FILM AND PRODUCTION PERKS: Our home has been used for a few film shoots previously. Each area of the home offers different features. In general, our home has over 50 windows, so it is very bright and there is ample natural lighting. You will have access to the whole house and grounds. CORPORATE PARTIES & GENERAL EVENTS: Our home is perfect for all kinds of events. During the late spring through early fall, the pool area is perfect for elegant parties of backyard BBQ's. Our grounds are yours to use as well. Inside, we can accommodate 75 people (with tables and chairs) in our entertainment room. Our event space is kept with minimal furniture so that we can arrange this space tailored to your needs. The house is all yours. So if you prefer to cook, you will enjoy our open kitchen. Please use anything as if it were your home. You may hold events (e.g., corporate parties, weddings, bachelorette parties etc.) with prior approval (an additional fee may apply). Please note that holding an event at the house is subject to different pricing and rules/regulations. Weddings and large events take a toll on the home. Even small backyard events increase usage, wear and tear, and our commitment to you. Of note, we only take a small number of weddings per year. *If your event has more than 50 people, we may ask that you rent a bathroom to accommodate additional guests. Please message us about our bathroom policy and whether we would require this for your event. **Listed price and max number of guests: The listed price includes a maximum of 20 people on the property. If your group is larger than that, please let us know and we would be happy to provide you a quote. PARKING INFORMATION: We have enough parking for 25 cars. In addition to our driveway, which can fit 15 cars, we also have parking down at our barn, free of charge. Please let us know if you need the extra parking at our barn. TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION: We are less than an hour north of NYC. The easiest way is to drive here. However, you can take public transport. There is a train stop (Harriman), which is 1.8 miles from our house, or a bus (0.5 miles from our house). There are several cab companies and we have UBER. AVAILABILITY: Please message us to inquire about availability before booking.

Everyone at the Estate was so friendly and helpful. They strive to meet their guests needs at every turn and it really showed. The shoot went very smoothly and we were very happy with the results, all thanks to Abbe and her team.
