About Beth Rinzler
Am an expat of Manhattan but grew up outside of Boston.
Beth Rinzler purchased this Cottage in 1994
Why Beth Rinzler chose Austerlitz
For years my family rented a tiny cottage in the area so as to escape the city in the summer. We began loving it more and more and making our weekends longer and longer. When we made the leap to move up full time, we chose this location because it is on border of Berkshire and Columbia Counties, near all the bright lights, yet very peaceful and tranquil. We were hoping to find a property with one distinguishing feature; we never expected to find one with so many bells and whistles.
What makes this Cottage unique
Swimming , canoeing, walking around the pond, enjoying the gardens, lazing about the property ,watching the hummingbirds skim past the flowers. Reading under a 100 year old tree. Listening to the trickle of the stream. Fresh air. sipping that first cup of coffee outside, exercising on the gazebo. Yoga. Meditation. Slowing down.
