The House & Grounds
Originally built in the 1860s by Cornelius Vanderbilt as a railroad hotel, this Victorian-Era house has been reimagined with a blend of vintage & organic design elements.
The historic 6000 square foot house sits prominently along Main Street in the Hudson Valley Village of Philmont. Tucked behind the house & hidden from passersby is an expansive, private backyard with mature maples, evergreens, wildflowers and over 500 feet of lake frontage. Eight en suite bedrooms are located above the ground floor common areas, which include
The Parlor, The Bar Room, The Game Room, Kitchen, and access to the backyard and lake.
