Quietly nestled on the Shawangunk Mountain ridge facing the Catskill Mountain Park, this rustic, cabin-like studio is minutes from the Minnewaska State Park and Mohonk Preserve hikes and surrounding villages. The rental is situated in the Hudson Valley near New Paltz and Rosendale (which offer a variety of mountain shopping, restaurants, and recreation) and the Rondout Valley farm communities of Stone Ridge and High Falls (each with fabulous restaurants, antique shops, farm stands, and outdoor opportunities).
The large sunny studio sits on a wooded lot on a quiet road. A variety of wildlife can be viewed through the long windows, enticing renters to trek further into the nature. Sit outside in a chair and enjoy the quiet solitude and clear starry nights.
Combined with the open floor plan the wood stove creates a lovely heat that warms the soul (the cabin has propane heat as well). Brand new kitchen and renovated stone and raw beam constructed bathroom. There is an additional double size bed that can be set up for parties of more than two.
Close to ski mountains. Hike or Bike down old carriage trails. Swim in the rushing Rondout Creek or jump off rock cliffs into pools of water. Enjoy fall foliage sightseeing, or hiking through autumn colored rail trails. Some of the best rock climbing in the world. An hour and a half long train ride from nearby Poughkeepsie will take you into New York City for day trips.
Owners home is also on the property.

I met my husband Chris while studying communication at Rochester Institute of Technology. We have both worked for nonprofit organizations for over a decade and have published a variety of magazines. I am currently the Executive Director of Children's Media Project, a nonprofit arts agency in Poughkeepsie, NY. And Chris is a Master Gardener who takes care of local properties, from gardening to carpentry, with his new business Country Wisdom Caretakers.
We moved to the Hudson Valley after traveling around the US and Canada because we love the natural beauty and the great little towns with wonderful restaurants. We now spend as much time as possible in the surrounding mountain trails and swimming holes, with our two young children. We really enjoy all of the farm stands and focus on local shopping. Each season in the Hudson Valley is more beautiful than the next.
This cabin is clean, spacious and well-equipped. Out every window are trees. It's a beautiful structure and offers a wonderful space for solace. There is an antique writing desk and very comfortable furniture. Not to mention friendly people and a HUGE array of things to do in nearby towns!
