a vacation.”a perfect family getaway”
We found our calling for a getaway purely by accident wanting to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city with our dogs. A few clicks on the website that Craig Newmark founded, we found us a nice cottage on the Esopus creek where we spent the day catching up on conversations and swimming with the dogs in between our wine therapy. At one point, we looked at each other and our happy pooches and said to each other “We should do this every weekend'.
And so we did….and found “Chez Rive Gauche' a simple, warm and very inviting waterfront getaway a short 90 minute drive from NYC.
So if you dream about escaping from a busy work week to relax by the water; canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, watching breathtaking sunsets and beautiful starry nights, Chez Rive G...

Location was beautiful. Close to everything you need without necessarily being in the middle of town. The house was beautifully decorated with a well equipped kitchen and comes with the use of kayak and canoe! There's hardly a need to leave the house when you're there! Hosts were so easy to communicate with. They were helpful - Tish was so...

My husband and I had the pleasure of visiting this cottage over the weekend. The house was so inviting and beautifully decorated. We spent the days on the water kayaking and fishing. If we were not in the water, we were enjoying the gorgeous views on the patio with a glass of wine. This was probably one of the most...

Great quiet spot to get away and relax. Closed in back yard for pets who can hang out by the water and watch the ducks and boats go by. Full kitchen which eliminates eating out daily. Plenty of stores nearby. A+ rating.

About the neighbourhood
The location of the cottage is on the creek. This part of the creek is accessible only to the homes on the creek, which means there is no public access, but that also means we have neighbors. People on the creek refer themselves to 'cricksters' . The cricketers, some of whom have grown up on this part of the creek welcome newcomers and their guests. We love to swim, boat, kayak, and wave out to everyone. At the front of the house, across the street is a train track. A goods train passes by on occasion, sometimes once a day, some times once every hour. The train so far has not been a disturbance to either us or our guests. Moving freight by rail is a carbon saver and reduces highway congestion. Some say the sound of the train is calming, some say it reminds them of their childhoo... more
