Come enjoy our spectacular 3 bedroom home set on a 100-acre estate with expansive views across our fields, meadows and woods to the beautiful Shawangunk Mountains and the Historic Mohonk Mountain House. The house is comfortably furnished, features two master bedroom suites and sleeps 6. There is a sofa bed in the den for possibly another two children.
VIDEO TOUR: To get the very best possible sense of the place, please visit our web site to watch a 2 minute video tour of the house and property. (In your web browser type three w's, then a period, then the word: chaits followed by another period, and then the word: com)
The large deck off the dining room is shaded by maples and pines and has sweeping views over our 1/4 acre spring fed swimming pond and the fields and mountains beyond.
The Perfect Getaway: While the setting is private, quiet and breathtaking, it is not remote. We are just a few minutes drive from a variety of services, and an 18-hole golf course that abuts our 100 acres. The house is 10 minutes from the charming towns of High Falls and Stone Ridge, and a half an hour to either Woodstock in the Catskills, or New Paltz in the Hudson Valley. We are located just 90 miles from Manhattan.
Perfectly situated to explore the Catskills and the entire Hudson Valley region. Chaits Getaway is just 20 minutes from Mohonk and Minnewaska Preserves, where you can enjoy world class climbing, swimming, biking, running, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, cross-country skiing. Additionally, there are multiple restaurants, bars, wineries, antiquing, cafes, shopping, and farmers markets nearby.
Chaits Getaway is surrounded by mature and beautiful gardens with a wide variety of trees and wildlife on our 100 acre property. It is very tranquil, quiet and serine here.... the perfect getaway.
Amenities: Chaits Getaway is a full time vacation rental property. What that means is that while you will find everything you need for a comfortable and pleasant stay, you won't find our own personal effects or clutter throughout the house or closets. The place is yours for your time there.
Chaits Getaway is an old country farm house built in 1887 which was completely and lovingly restored in 1975 by our family. This year we have completely remodeled the kitchen and upstairs master bath.
The large 21' x 16' living room features a massive stone fireplace, a cathedral ceiling, exposed barn beams and a weathered barn board wall expropriated from the old family barn.
The stone fireplace wall carries around into the new cook's kitchen, which also has a fireplace hearth right in the room. The newly remodeled fully equipped gourmet kitchen features all stainless appliances, a gas range, custom made cherry cabinets and granite counter tops. There are tremendous views from every window.
Pond: Just below the house is our 1/4 acre spring-fed swimming pond, with dock and sitting area, great for sunning, swimming, or just whiling away the afternoon. Enjoy the view from the deck of the house which looks right over the pond and the sweeping views beyond. The house is cozily furnished with everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
