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.

Spotless, cozy and oh so comfortable. Irene is a fantastic host. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses and appliances. The fireplace worked great, and there was plenty of kindling and wood. The view out the French doors is lovely. We had a fantastic time and will definitely go back again in warmer weather when we can sit out on the deck. Just lovely!
Another wonderful visit
We've been staying at Irene's cottage for 6 years now, and we still love it so much. It really is a perfect getaway for us. Can't wait to come back again!
Beautiful, Cozy, Spare Simplicity.
We really enjoyed our 3 nights. The space is small and simple -- perfect for getting away from the business of life. The fireplace was enjoyed greatly. The setting is very private: fields around, a view of the river, the rail-trail right outside the door. Amazing hiking locations nearby with spectacular views... then returned home to books and wine by the fire!
A perfect weekend away
Irene really makes this cottage from a quaint cottage in the woods to a perfect weekend away. All of her small touches make it so much more then just a cottage. When we arrived Irene made sure the lights were on and the heat was running. It was a beautiful cottage, we really enjoyed our stay.
It was great!
This cottage was exactly as it's in the photos. Very calm and serene surroundings. Irene kept it very clean. Very private and has all you need from internet to washer dryer. Irene is very nice host. Will definitely come back!
Lovely Cottage Perfect for Two
When we arrived, there was almost 9 inches of unexpected snow on the ground. Irene had the cottage completely ready for us - wood by the door and both the heat and lights were on. This location, at the end of a very quiet street right on a canal trail, the layout (everything you need), the lovely view of fields, creek and canal, the cozy fireplace - all were amazing. We completely enjoyed our stay and would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a nice two person getaway - if you are trying to decide between places, choose this one!
