Want to travel the world without having to look at your awful passport photo and stress about whether or not to buy one of those under-your-clothes tourist wallets? Well look no further than… the Hudson Valley? That’s right, this 4,000 square foot mission home in Hopewell Junction gives you a taste of overseas travel with design influences from all over the world — all the way from France to Sri Lanka.

Don’t let the price scare you. The home is enormous and could accommodate a crowd. Get 8 friends together for a retreat weekend and split the price. We’re not mathematicians but we’re pretty sure that works out to $100 a night. Not so out of reach when you think about it like that.

Here’s a little scenario we see playing out. You wake up at sunrise and pull down the down comforter on the soft-as-clouds french provincial bed. As you open the french doors in the bedroom, you take a deep breath of the crisp morning air and begin to bend into downward facing dog beside the buddhist inspired, lily pad covered, meditation pond. We might be getting a little carried away but you see what we’re getting at. You don’t have to be a yogi to appreciate this stately Hudson Valley retreat. We’re pretty sure anyone could fall in love with it’s grandeur.

This one books quick so reserve it now!
