There you'll find some of the best scenery in the state and a diverse eco system like none in the world. Our Shawangunk Ridge will impress you with it's white rock face and climbers come from all over the world the tackle it. The parks are full of trails to hike and bike and pristine lakes to swim in. This beautiful old house has everything you'll need while here. Perfect layout.

The perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the House on Honeysuckle Hill during our wedding weekend and had the most wonderful time! The house was immaculate and beautifully decorated. The property was gorgeous and we enjoyed sitting on the deck taking in the fresh air each night. I would absolutely reccomend a stay here to anyone who is looking for a charming getaway from the busy hustle and bustle of city life, or for anyone who is getting married at the nearby Crested Hen Farms! You won't regret it!

We had a great weekend. Sat by the fireplace at night. Had breakfast on the porch in the beautiful sunshine the next morning. Close to cute shops and restaurants. If you’re looking in the area, I recommend staying here.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here over the July 4th weekend and couldn't have asked for a better experience. We were two families with young kids and it was a perfect place to escape from the city. The kids enjoyed playing outdoors while the adults enjoyed the wraparound deck. The home was nicely decorated, very comfortable and fully stocked. We enjoyed the fire pit, making s'mores and just relaxing. The surrounding area is full of activities - we went strawberry picking, swam in the sky lakes of Minnewaska and hiked in the Mohonk Preserve. Not to mention close to downtown New Paltz. Bruce was extremely accommodating and helpful with what to do in the area. We highly recommend a stay in this home! We will definitely be back!!

High Falls
Car: necessary

The quaint village of High Falls will delight you. A 10 minute drive from the heart of New Paltz yet a world away from it all. Such a cool mix of forested land and open farm fields. Clean streams to fish and swim in. Parks with thousands of protected acres like the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park are a bike ride away from here. There you'll find the Shawangunk Ridge and all of the beauty it holds. Views from this ridge west to the Catskill Mtns will impress you. The countless miles of old carriage trails will wear you out. You'll find many excellent restaurants in the village of High Falls and in New Paltz which is exit 18 on NYS I-87. We're only 1 1/2 hours from the heart of NYC. Come play!
