Let’s reminisce for a minute. Think back to the days of your youth. It’s summer vacation and your biggest concern is catching the melting ice cream on your tongue before it hits the ground. We can’t promise anything but we’re pretty sure this schoolhouse cottage in Hudson will bring you back to those lazy summer days.  Something about it is just oozing with nostalgia. Maybe it’s the San Francisco World’s Fair tray in the kitchen or maybe it’s the fact that it’s an actual restored one-room schoolhouse! Hello, 1915? It’s Upstater. Can we come in? Everything about this place makes us want to go back to simpler times.

You and 3 fellow vacationers can relax in this adorable cottage. Hopefully one of you know your way around a kitchen because this one is just begging for an apple pie to be made in it. Toss your iPhones and get lost in the 5 acres that this schoolhouse sits on. Oh, did we mention that a river runs through the backyard? If you haven’t already, it’s time to make reservations at this schoolhouse cottage. The fate of your summer depends on it.
