About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2 adults

Sky Island is the unique ecosystem of the craggy cliffs of Shawangunk Mountains famous among rock climbers. Nestled between the Rondout Creek and the D&H Canal, the cottage sits in a pastoral glade of trees, birds and deer. Kerhonkson is a Hudson River Valley town of natural beauty. It's a five minute drive to Minnewaska State Park and the Mohonk Preserve. This totally renovated 1840’s cottage is ideal for a couple, but also serves as a peaceful getaway for anyone wishing to spend some quiet time alone. It has a wood burning fireplace, cathedral ceiling with skylights and a private deck. It's an easy entry to the D&H Canal Rail Trail for walking, bicycling, cross-country skiing or bird watching. Regretfully, we cannot accommodate children or pets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is so lovely, it always feels like home when we get there. We are Dutch and have been in this cozy house many times already. The first time we felt so welcomed by Irene, the owner, and now every time we see each other the contact just is great. The character of her and her family is in and around the house!





Excellent!

Idyllic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is perfect for the couple looking for a romantic getaway. Perfectly appointed, my husband and I literally could not have asked for anything more. The decor was extremely tasteful, and we had absolutely everything we needed (and more). Rustic exposed beams, skylights, deck, and cozy fireplace made this midweek escape one of the best we've ever had. A large selection of books, DVDs, and brochures for all the local parks, restaurants, vineyards, museums, and villages ensured that we spent our time enjoyably. The bedroom was surprisingly spacious with a big comfortable bed, fine linen and bedspread, and perfectly furnished. The bathroom was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed cooking our dinner in the well-stocked kitchen with the local produce we picked up during the day, and also appreciated the wireless internet connection with helped us keep tabs on what was happening in the "real world". There was plenty of closet space for us to keep our things and even a washer and dryer. This cabin is truly perfect, and we plan on staying again.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation was wonderful and we did not lack for anything during our weekend stay. Extremely quiet and comfortable, our only regret was that it rained during our stay so we were not able to more fully explore the nearby rail trail. A very good reason to return, hopefully soon! This was among our very best experiences with VRBO.

A beautiful little piece of heaven here in earth!

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional accommodations ~ this enchanting cottage exceeded our expectations! The beauty of the area , private lovely grounds , attention to detail and small touches of thoughtfulness made our mini getaway a place we hope to return to often. The owner, Irene, makes you feel 'at home' even before you arrive. An extraordinary soul for sure. Once there, you feel as if you arrived at a special place made just for you. The attention to detail is off the charts. Love peace and kindness live here for sure!
