Tuckahoe is a friendly historic village of 6,000 residents on the edge of the Bronx River. Our quiet, winding street is conveniently located just minutes by foot from all amenities: train station, bus stops, parks, grocery store, shoppes, restaurants, pharmacy, and library. It is also within quick access of major parkways for easy travels to Manhattan, New Jersey (beaches...), Long Island (The Hamptons...), Upstate New York and New England (Boston...). Our home truly offers the best of both world: alternate your visits between the bustling city and the verdant countryside. There are so many amazing activities to do close to our home such as the Bronx zoo, Botanical Gardens, Bronx River Park, Playland amusement park, Rye beach, Bear Mountain, and numerous hiking, cycling and horseback riding opportunities. Legoland NY is opening in Spring 2020 in Goshen NY, approximately 1hr from our home. We highly recommend visiting these cultural and artistic landmarks: Donald M.

Member description
We are a family in transition at the moment. Our oldest daughter is heading to university in Montreal in Sept 2019 and our other two children are busy with high school and sports, so family vacations are becoming more challenging to organize. We usually find out about our summer family vacation dates later in March or April. At other times of the year, Vincent and Julie can make plans to travel alone while the children are in school, but since this is our only home, those exchanges need to be non-simultaneous. We can host 2 people in hospitality for short stays while we are home.
