I am originally from Toronto Canada , but have lived in the States since '99.
My job had me living out of a suitcase for many years before I could finally call Manhattan my home, where after many years of living in the crazy city, I found myself some green space!
Shawn Pressley purchased this house in 2000
I happened to have been invited up to New Paltz for the weekend and it became love at first sight. The area has so much to offer, from hiking , to kayaking, horse back riding , sky diving , culinary delights with many quality restaurants opening up around town, Mohonk Mountain House & Spa, or simply, the easy drive out of the city for some peace, fresh air and tranquility.
The area itself captured my heart with the Catskill mountains as a backdrop, and the every changing Wallkill river at it's base.
I loved living here, I loved having my horses in the back yard and the dogs running around the property.
thanks. things have been just perfect. we took some walks and did some other things. It was a good chance for my wife to be with her two boys and their families. the house was perfect and everything was first class. we used a lot of firewood and enjoyed it. I was up here a lot many years ago but only on day trips to hike or x-country ski, never just to relax. thanks again for everything and happy new year to you.
Lovely house with lots of room, well equipped kitchen and lots of outdoor acreage. Much what we expected!
The house was light and well-equipped. It was near town and hikes. All our questions were answered almost immediately. I highly recommend this property.
I rented the house for a girls only weekend, and couldn't have picked a better place. We were looking for a relaxed, low key weekend and that is exactly what we got. The house was as pictured and absolutely amazing. Clean, spacious, super comfortable beds, and lots of character. It was also in close proximity to everything we wanted to do (New Paltz, hiking, wineries, etc). We spent the weekend kayaking, playing board games, and grilling outside. We also hiked at Sam's Point, picnicked at a few local wineries, and ate a LOT of delicious food. Shawn made everything super easy, especially me as the designated trip planner. We are already planning another reunion this fall because we had such a great time. Thank you for an amazing stay!
This was our third stay at Shawn's home. We have now stayed there in the Fall, Winter and this time Spring. Each season brings its own unique display of beauty at this home and the property. We love walking down to the river's edge and watching the sunrise and sunsets. We got lucky with the weather and we were able to sit outside on the deck and relax. The house is beautiful and immaculate. Shawn is quick to respond if you have a question and we know we will be back again. We highly recommend this beautiful home in a fantastic area of Ulster County. It is close enough to everything....hiking, dining, shopping. And yet when you are at the house you feel you are alone in your private world. The house has a lot of land and privacy. Thanks again Shawn for providing this wonderful place to escape to.
We had a great family time in this house and we highly recommend it.
The owner welcomed us with a very good bottle of wine, that we enjoyed while sitting around the fireplace, watching snowflakes falling down.
The cleanliness of the house was impeccable.
Being a 7-people family, we used the kitchen a lot, and we all really appreciated how functional it was.
The location was great, between New Paltz and Gardiner, at the heart of the Shawangunk Vineyard Trail.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with our family during our stay. The house has great sun light and had accommodations for 8 adults with 3 king beds and 1 double bed. We enjoyed the home and the surrounding area. We enjoyed our stay enough to consider a stay in the summer to enjoy the river and hiking. We did complete the hike around the lake and it was spectacular. The location is great for hiking and historical tours. The town of Paltz has numerous has a wide variety of foods available.
