Redgate Cottage was absolutely lovely! It was the perfect location for my family to celebrate our anniversary getaway. Ginny, the owner, was timely and responded to my initial inquiry and follow-up quickly making it an easy to decison to book here. The cottage was beautiful and decorated in a warm an inviting way. We've been to the New Paltz area several times and it was nice to stay so close to the action this time. The location was great - just about 3 miles to downtown New Paltz, super close to the Mohonk Preserve and very close to Minnewaska State Park. There is such great hiking / biking / outdoor activities and dinig in the entire area. We had our 21 month old with us so kept things low-key activity and dining-wise, but the Main Street Bistro is always a favorite of ours for a quick and yummy breakfast. We also ate at Bridgecreek Cafe in the Water Street Market and the Moonlight Cafe. We swam and hiked at Lake Minnewaska, hiked in the Mohonk Preserve, wandered around town, and even hit a fun children's musuem in Poughkeepsie on a rainy day. The cottage was so cozy and was just as described in the listing. I would stay here again and recommend it to friends. Enjoy your stay!
