Rustic romantic get away

  • 4 of 5

A lovely little winter get away on a farm. The yurt is unique and well insolated. Kitchen equipment is basic (and from the 70s) but works just fine. Beth is quite helpful the animals are friendly though unless your dog is used to farm animals I strongly recommend keeping them on leash. Also the yurt does smell a bit from the gas fireplace and oven. Overall i found the yurt to be private and romantic and we plan to come back. Oh and is snowed but the streets were well plowed.

Perfect winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

Since my wife and I aren't skiers, we found the yurt a nice compromise for getting away during the colder months but not spending a ton to stay near a mountain. Though there's admittedly less to do in the New Paltz area when it's below freezing. (We couldn't hike or sight-see much, but we did manage to get to a few bars, a vineyard and a distillery). Still, staying in at the yurt at night worked out nicely at night, as quiet as our NYC apartment is loud. I'd love to get back to Tim & Beth's in the spring, summer or fall to take full advantage of the outdoors.

The Yurt was great! Much better than I expected.

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend loves the idea of self sustained living and I wanted a place she would love to be the site I proposed to her. The Yurt was great, if you want a different place to get away from the city. It is a little hike through the farm, so if you are a weakling or plan on wearing anything but boots, get a hotel room. Tim and Beth are awesome, super helpful, friendly, and have a great farm.

Beth directed me to Mohonk Mountain to propose and it was perfect. My new fiancé and I convinced Beth and Tim to celebrate with us at the bonfire on Saturday. We will definitely return, and recommend anyone and all to stay in the Yurt. It is spacious and cozy. You could not ask for better hosts. Not sure how anyone could have a bad time here. Thank you, Tim and Beth for a very good weekend.

Simply Amazing and Truly Unique

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had an incredibly laid back and relaxing stay at this unique property. Perfectly suited for couples who cannot decide on whether to go camping or to stay at a quaint country bed and breakfast.

The listing was extremely accurate. The yurt really has everything you need for a short stay, including a fully functional kitchen (with cups, utensils, stove and oven, pots, pans, silverware, refrigerator, etc.) and bathroom (with shower/bathtub), a comfortable bed room, great little loft area for extra sleeping space, and a comfy common area/living room with a TV (DVD player), fireplace, and a huge futon.

The yurt was clean and clearly well maintained. Despite it being a cold November weekend, the yurt was perfectly warm throughout, with an adjustable thermostat for the fireplace. Although there were only two of us, I believe up to 6 (or maybe even 7) people could comfortably stay in the yurt. It truly is much larger on the inside than it appears on the outside.

The farm itself is also wonderful. Standing outside of the yurt on its deck, we could only see hills, trees, and horses. It felt totally private despite it being a short walk from the main house. My girlfriend (a true animal lover) had a great time playing with the horses, dogs, and kittens that were roaming around the property. We spent an entire day walking around the sprawling farm, taking in the scenery, and breathing the crisp fresh air. At night, we were able to sit outside on the deck and look up at the stars; the area surrounding the yurt is completely silent and dark at night (I would recommend bringing a flashlight or two).

The owner, Tim, was very helpful and friendly from the get-go, helping us bring our luggage and groceries to the yurt, introducing us to the horses, showing us how everything in the yurt works, and giving us some sightseeing tips for the area.

We are already looking forward to our next visit; hopefully we will be bringing some friends/family next time around!

Our dream getaway or home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay there so much! The yurt felt so comfortable and cozy it really felt like the perfect vacation house. I could easily stay there for a month (or a few)! The 4 of us enjoyed every moment at this magical place, the field around it with all the wild flowers and how privet it felt, the horses and the whole atmosphere was magical. It is truly a place we would come back to over and over again! It is a place to renew your self ,swim in the stream,stroll around the beautiful farm, cook delisious food, light some candles at night , watch the stars on the deck, play some guitar,drum and sing and reunite with the people you love~ Beth and Tim were the loveliest hosts, always there when we needed anything, very attending and helpful. Best trip ever! Peace and love~

started out good ... just got worse from there!

  • 1 of 5

We arrived late Sunday afternoon and were promptly greeted by Beth. We had to walk through a field and then through a fence that didn't open all the way therefore we had to climb through the fence. Once we were at the Yurt Beth informed us that there was an issue with the solar power and told us we might have to reset breakers if the power goes out. This was okay if it happened once or twice we could handle that. We ended up resetting the breakers 5-10 times per day. By Tuesday we were fed up and called Beth - She said "this is just the state of things right now" and I told her it needed to be fixed. We had stuff in the refrigerator that went bad because there was no power! She sent someone to look at it and told me she would have someone there Wednesday morning. We waited Wednesday morning and nobody showed up. I finally called Beth back at 1 pm Wednesday - she sent someone over that asked us how long we would be there and if we would be able to deal with it til we leave as it would be a major project and he didn't know much about the solar energy. WHAT? I called Beth back and told her this property was not as described (there was black tape over the ONE fan that was in the yurt so we had no fan the last week of August, tv/dvd player did not turn on, and the so called power was not there) and that we would be leaving Thursday morning. She told me at that point she would refund the two nights and a portion of the money we had paid for the week. She told me she was teaching a class and she would call me back when she got home. She never called me back so Thursday morning I called her to tell her we were checking out and she told me she would only give back the 2 nights that we would not be there. We could have rented a cabin with no electricity for $50-$100 a night - we chose this property for the amenities that were not provided as described within the description. We were really looking forward to an enjoyable vacation away from work and found ourselves "working" to keep the power to the building by resetting breakers many times a day! Beth did refund the 2 nights that we were not there - but did not hold to her word and return any portion of the money that we had spent on our time there. She informed us after we left that she was aware before our arrival that the tv/dvd player was not functioning and did not mention it to us upon our arrival. All furniture was comfy, the loft area was cool, horses around yurt was neat - kids loved that.

Owner's Response: We are really sorry that there was a problem with the electricity. The problem did start before these guest came and my husband worked on it before he left and thought he had fixed it. The Yurt is off the grid, solar powered and is much more complicated than a regular electrical system. Once the guests told me of the problem I called an electrician to take a look and he had a difficult time understanding the system and couldn't find a solution. In the end it took my husband a week to fix the problem.We really do care about our guests comfort. Things do break and we can't predict when, but our guests comfort is really important to us and I did do all I could to solve this problem, but it was a very diffucult one.The TV/VCR does not work, we leave it there because it does play cd's.I refunded these guests 2 nights stay. I had already extended to them a discounted rate for thier stay, they recieved the weekly rate and were paying significantly less per night than our nightly rate, so I did not refund them anything in addition to this. We have had the Yurt for 6 years and have had many guests come visit and love the farm, all of the horses, dogs, chickens and cats and the natural feel of the Yurt. A big part of the beauty of the Yurt is that it is in the middle of a horse pasture, so walking through a field of wild flowers and under the horse wire is a pleasure.
