Classic Four Square home facing historic Downing Park Newburgh NY. A charming home for all to call home for a few days including film lovers, and even film makers like myself. Your residing host Keith is an artist and local film maker/set decorator. What I am offering is your own private floor with one or two bedrooms and private bath.You have the use of a beautiful dinning room, private patio and off street parking.I celebrate everything about classic film. The home circa 1912 is lovingly filled with user friendly antiques and film memorabilia. Most of it's original details remain. Newburgh is a Hudson River city just an hour and 5 minutes out of Grand Central station.We are the second largest historic district in the state! It is a rising city with a wealth of historic detail and exciting new venues. Beautiful river views and buildings that take you thru 4 centuries. The locals celebrate culture and a love of diversity. Among many firsts Newburgh created the "silver screen" as we know it today! SOMETHING wonderful is happening... more homes have sold in the past 11 months than in the past 11 years! Wonderful diverse home buyers make this a way friendly city to visit or call home. Nothing more beautiful than a full moon on the Hudson magic! Please keep in mind a two night minimum stay is required during the weekends of September and October when our leaves are at their most beautiful colors! We keep a tidy home but please keep in mind for those who are allergic we have a friendly cat named CJ.

About Keith Nieto
Set decorator, film maker and window dresser. I celebrate and love all the arts especially classic film. My design background started at Hunter College NYC and expanded working several years with Bloomingdale's NY.Living in both NYC and Boston I chose to move to the beautiful Hudson Valley to be near my beloved parents who shared their love of film with me. After studying film many years ago film has come to my doorstep in the last three years via a city film office and full sound stages just blocks from my home. How could I resist not getting involved with film making again?
Keith Nieto purchased this House in 1999
Why Keith Nieto chose Newburgh
This handsome property looks over beautiful historic Downing Park and pond. The park now has a wonderful cafe/coffee house just a short walk from my front door.I wanted a home with it's original detail still intact in a city/country like setting. Just minutes away from the majestic Hudson River and it's breathtaking views. AND a hop and a skip to NYC! Coffee and tea are always available and starting now Keith would like to invite guests to a cocktail hour in the dinning room or wonderful patio depending on the weather. I make a good vintage drink.

Visiting Keith’s home is like walking into a time gone by. For those who love old homes and vintage furnishings, you will enjoy your visit. Downfall was the off street parking — make sure your vehicle has a good suspension system! Make sure you take the short walk to the Shelter House Cafe in Downing Park for breakfast or lunch! It is a gem with great food.
Charming and relaxing
Charming and comfortable period property in convenient location for Newburgh centre and also nearby scenic parks. Visited when Newburgh Illuminated festival took place, free event, great street entertainment and vendors. As a good host Keith provided an insight and information for the area which helped us a lot. Thank you.
Great set up and nicely decorated!
The owner is super nice and it is all done just right
Todd was a pleasure to host you and your family...I especially enjoyed my talks with your sons. Please feel free to think about staying with us again and enjoying the beautiful Hudson Valley in all its wonderful seasons. Thanks for the kind review! Cheers, Keith
Warm, Welcoming, Wonderful
I couldn't speak more highly of our stay with Keith at his Classic Film Retreat. For anyone using Homeaway seeking that extra-personal experience you can't get from a hotel, this home and its owner deliver in spades. He welcomed us and gave us the tour through this one of a kind house decked with photos from a bygone era and vintage decor. It started on the second floor with our bathroom and bedroom (in which he had put on a faux fire for us), and concluded in the lovely dining room on the first floor, where he joined us for coffee the next morning (as per our request). Keith was an excellent host, available but also allowing us our space and privacy. His knowledge and pride of Newburgh was evident as he provided historical anecdotes and much appreciated recommendations to local bars and restaurants. If we ever stay in Newburgh again, it will certainly be at Keith's Classic Film Retreat.
What a delightful young couple...I was very happy to hear they had a wonderful visit. We talked upon their arrival and had coffee the following morning. Their good energy and positive outlook on the world would be welcome in any home...and certainly mine again! I hope we have an opportunity to meet again...
The perfect host and beautiful house
We stayed here for one night. The house is beautiful and well maintained.
The host made sure that we had everything we needed. He was very respectful of our privacy as well.
I will definitely stay here again when we are back in the area.
It was a pleasure hosting you. Guests like yourself inspire hosts like myself to make stays memorable. Would love to have you visit again...anytime. Enjoy the rest of the Summer! Your host, Keith
I must admitted I was a bit skeptic when I first realized that the owner lived in the house but Keith Nieto was a great host. He allowed us the access to entire second floor along with the refrigerator, coffee maker and dining room. We sat around chatting about ourselves like three friends. He recommended a Peruvian Restaurant, within walking distance, where the food was to die for.
The house is across the street from a lovely park, so the bedroom view was spectacular. Although the exterior of the home needs some TLC and renovations, the interior was cozy, warm and entertaining. The home deco comes straight from the movie classics. So if you're an oldie movie buff, this is a place for you.
I highly recommend this home and hope to stay again if I return to Newbury.
Located in the city of Newburgh home to the 2nd largest historic district in the state. Walk thru 4 centuries of diverse architecture nesting along the beautiful Hudson river just 50 miles north of NYC.
