wonderful and tranquille getaway

  • 5 of 5

Clean facility

Sterrett made our stay comfortable and easy.

She is very informative on surrounded shops and attractions (printed info in the house), and quick reply to any questions. The house is clean and equipped with all essentials in bathroom and kitchen. (shampoo, soap, towels, dish detergent, laundry detergent) However, if you plan to cook, you will need to bring the cooking oil. I love the gas fireplace which is remote controlled.

The surrounding is so quiet and peaceful, I felt sad on the departure date. Highly recommended for any one who is seeking tranquille.

Wonderful attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

It's so fabulous when you find the perfect retreat for yourself and your family -- quiet, relaxing, bright, comfortable, and stocked with the essentials that make a place feel like home. The 1840s Carriage House offered my husband, doggy, and me all of those things. The attention to detail is especially welcome: everything from candles (for a romantic dinner in the house, prepped on the trusty Weber grill) to detergent and fabric softener (for getting laundry done -- who wants to pack dirty clothes?) to a Brita water pitcher in the undercounter fridge. A basket full of local information provided us with hiking trail maps for the two nature preserves nearby, and Sterrett's welcome email included an impressive list of local farmer's markets, shops, restaurants, even a movie theater. It's great when you find a beautiful place to stay -- which the carriage house certainly is -- but it's even better when you arrive and discover that you have everything you need; or, rather, that your needs have been anticipated and attended to with thoughtfulness and care. We had a great week in High Falls, thanks to Sterrett's grace, good cheer, sense of humor, and (yes, I'll say it again, since it bears repeating) attention to detail. You will have a great stay there, too.

Perfect and enchanting experience

  • 5 of 5

I only have good things to say about this charming little country house, renovated with exquisite taste and artistic touch. Everything is of best quality, perfectly clean and well-mantained. The bed and the sofa are very comfortable. There is everything you need in the kitchen to cook all you wish. The rooms are nice and big. Natural light is pouring everywhere into the house. As it is located on a hillside, you also have a nice view of the surroundings from the windows.

In fact I found the place even nicer than on the pictures presented on the website and we liked it so much that we did not go out much! We felt like in a cocoon!

But there are many possibilities of hikes in the parks in the area and there are villages not to far where you can find all the services. We loved the Bagel coffee in Stone Ridge!

The owner lives nearby and was very helpful and kind.

Our experience was absolutely perfect and enchanting.

A gorgeous secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful little carriage house was a perfect getaway for the two of us and our dog. The owner could not have been more gracious (to us AND our dog) and the house could not have been more welcoming in its artistic, tasteful, warm decor and thoughtful touches. Light streamed in through the windows, even on a cloudy day. There was a sense of spaciousness and openness, even though the house is small. The bathroom was luxurious and the bed super-comfortable. A truly beautiful, cozy home in a woodsy, secluded setting. Also, the owner provided helpful tips on the area. We enjoyed food from the nearby food coop, and a couple of delicious meals in one of the local restaurants, with lots of vegetarian options, which is important to us. We will return! (And so will our dog.)

Perfect Romantic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house is a clean, well kept, cozy hideaway. This rental is a great spot for a romantic getaway, artistic inspiration, or perfect for a writer. The cabin has all you need to stay comfortable up in the beautiful mountains of New York State; from a cozy fireplace, full spice cabinet for cooking, to luxury linens, and a Jacuzzi bath. There are many great places to get out in nature near the cabin and the quaint town of New Paltz is very close.

For a special treat, stop by and visit Jeanette across the road. She is a caterer and personal chef who can cook up a world class meal, even with little notice. My husband and I called the day before our visit and Jeanette was happy to accommodate us. She cooked up a five course Moroccan meal, with side dishes and a twist for dessert. I must say, her hummus was the BEST I have ever tried and the crepes for dessert were a special treat!

It was hard to come home after visiting the carriage house. Sterrett was a great host and very helpful. We loved her recommendation for the food co-op in town and brought home many organic goodies. We look forward to visiting again in the near future. Thank you for opening your home to us, Sterrett!

Elegant Rustic Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House was beautifully decorated with engaging art work and antiques.It had a wonderful open and airy feel with high ceilings. The master bed was so crisp and comfortable. The room sizes were spacious and the open kitchen was fun to cook in. The long porch was inviting to relax with a cup of tea in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. We loved the natural wood floors with the large windows all around inviting the outside in with a view of the meadow.

Sterrett was a real pleasure to talk to and was very helpful with anything we asked. The location is close to everything but tucked away in a beautiful area.
