Overview

New Paltz Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Alpine hideaway on the mountain- great home base for climbing, hiking, relaxing

Red Gate Cottage is situated on a little over an acre on Mountain Rest Road, the former carriage road to the famed Mohonk Mountain House. You'll feel far from the madding crowd in your little alpine hideaway, yet welcome the short drive to town (New Paltz (2.2 mi.) and High Falls (8.0) and Rosendale (7.0) for a quick run to Rock and Snow for gear or a bite of authentic Japanese at Hokkaido.

The cottage's convenient location makes it a perfect home base for taking in all the Hudson Valley has to offer. The area's most important sites are all within a short drive: hike the Rail Trail, swim and picnic on the lake at Minnewaska State Park or hire a guide and rock climb the Gunks. Mohonk and New Paltz are also big with cyclists, kayakers and hikers.

Complimentary passes for two to the historic Mohonk Preserve, come with the house and provide you access to their magnificent trails. Venture a little further and enjoy Woodstock, take in the Zen Mountain Monastery, see a concert in Esopus or venture across the river to Bard, Frederic Church's Olana or the wonderful city of Hudson. Of course, antiquing and restaurants are abundant as are local produce and livestock.

Red Gate Cottage is tastefully decorated in a contemporary, rustic style. This cottage-style house has two bedrooms, one full bath, an open and inviting kitchen/living room and dining space made especially cozy with its centrally located wood stove and vaulted ceilings. Cook up a great meal with the locally grown organic produce or meats you procured at the Farmers Market in town or melt away the afternoon in the adjoining sun-room with lovely french doors to the deck and garden.

For late spring, summer and fall guests, our membership at the nearby Phillies Bridge Farm CSA is yours during your stay. A trip to Phillies Bridge Farm comes with magnificent views of the Gunks. Their almost weekly schedule of projects, informal concerts and festivities provide ways to engage with and even work on the farm.

Both bedrooms in Red Gate Cottage boast brand new extra comfy beds and fresh cotton linens. The utility room is equipped with washer and dryer. Finally, you're all set for work or streaming movies with the super-high broadband wireless internet available throughout the house.

The charm and the mountainside location of Red Gate Cottage provides for a cozy retreat for couples, a small family or anyone passionate about nature. If you're lucky, you may even hear or see our long-taloned neighbor, the Great Horned Owl, when he's on the hunt.

About Ginny

I am a recent Brooklyn native and have fallen in love with Mohonk mountain. Easy to do if you're a nature-lover. I look forward to all seasons for hiking, fishing, gardening and being part of the wonderful New Paltz community.

Ginny purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Ginny chose New Paltz

My cottage offers a little taste of mountain living. A great place for your 'arrival of the wild country of the soul.' Deer, rabbits, fox, birds and our owl, share space with us. I've also fallen in love with the stone on the mountain and recommend a little pre-read on the geology and glacial activity that occurred on the mountain, the reason for the massive boulders in the fields and around the yard.

What makes this cottage unique

Red Gate Cottage is a labor of love. A constant garden. I'm just getting started with transforming it to a unique alpine home. Look for updates on our progress!

So close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this property! We arrived in the evening of the first day, and found that everything was ready and as described by the owner, who was very responsive to any questions we had leading up to our trip. As the title suggests, this house is centrally located to the main attractions in New Paltz -- you're within a 10-minute drive of the Mohonk Preserve, the main town (where you can go to restaurants and do some grocery shopping), and farms. While we were there, we were also able to use the owner's membership in the local CSA (seasonal), which was a real treat!

Great time at the cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful summer vacation staying here. The house is charming, exactly as pictured. Ginny was extremely responsive and helpful. We enjoyed the easy access to hiking and biking. The New Paltz area has a lot to do and we highly recommend it.

Fantastic rental!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful and Cozy Home!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful. Even though we were near a road, it was very quiet and private. The home itself is extremely cozy and lovely. I will carry warm memories of sitting out on the deck under the stars, catching up with relatives on family news, sipping wine and listening to the cicadads.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place last minute and the owner was very accomadating to work with our last minute arrival. The place is much bigger than you might think from the photos and great for a base of operations around New Paltz. We're rock climbers and were happy to be closer to the crag than the camp sites. There were even some toys that our boys loved digging into!
