  • Description


    Nichols Field is a bucolic horse farm on 72 acres located 90 minutes from NYC in the beautiful Hudson Valley. Just minutes from world class mountain climbing, beautiful state parks and ski areas. I live on the farm with my delightful 12 year old daughter, 8 horses, 2 house cats, dog and a hamster. Ours is a spacious breezy farmhouse with good vibes, lovely grounds, plenty of walking trails, vegetable garden, and a swimming pool.
