About Franky and Jenny Pérez
The New Paltz area is filled with all the beauty we were looking for. We are originally from NYC and love the proximity our town is to the city. We enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle. We love to hike, mountain bike, kayak, snow shoe, and cross country ski. In every season of the year we find activities to enjoy the outdoors. We also love to eat organically from our land, enjoy the beauty that surrounds us, and living a peaceful and serene life. Jen may be spotted knitting on our front porch while the sun sets.
Franky and Jenny Pérez purchased this Studio in 1997
Why Franky and Jenny Pérez chose New Paltz
Our property sits facing west at the majestic Shawangunk Ridge. The sunrises and the sunsets are breathtaking. In the morning, you will see a red hue shimmering on the rocks as the sun rises from the east. In the evening, an amazing bright orange glow as the set falls behind the ridge in the west.
What makes this Studio unique
Falling in love with this property was easy once we saw the huge rock pile we had for a view. Sitting on the foothills of these mountains, only four miles from the town of New Paltz, we new we had the best location for our home. We are minutes away from everything exciting this town has to offer. The New Paltz area has the finest restaurants, wineries, outdoor festivals and events the Hudson valley has to offer. Don't miss the Taste of New Paltz, Crafts Fairs, or Rib festival our town hosts every year. There are also many smaller events hosted at wineries throughout the year. The outdoor activities that are possible in over 24,000 acres of trails, ponds, rock cliffs for climbing, ice climbing, and swimming holes are endless. After you return from your activities, lounge on the 24' deck or in our hammock area in the shade as you enjoy the beautiful gardens. We have carefully selected and planted all the perennials, shrubs, grasses, and trees to reflect a gorgeous landscape in color and form. The Chamber of Commerce selected our property to be on the annual garden tour. Over 200 guests visited our gardens and were inspired by this experience. Our property has a natural creek running though it which allows for wildlife such as heron, frogs, toads, deer, and fox to visit us for a drink. Our pool is private and will cool you off after a day of hiking in the woods. Our bon fire area is perfect for star gazing on brisk evenings while sip on hot chocolate. You are welcome to stroll the gardens, pick flowers, or collect eggs from our chicken coop. The ladies would be happy to share their delicious eggs with you. We want our guests to feel at home when they stay with us. Come visit and see for yourself!

I almost don't want to give away the secret of this sweet hideaway. It's a clean, efficient upstairs unit with a kitchen, comfy bed and other seating, nice TV (Netflix, etc.), and deck with chairs and BBQ. The owners provided us with fresh eggs (so delicious), milk, granola, yogurt, and fresh tomatoes from the garden. We met the chickens in the back yard, rode bikes on the quiet street, saw deer. It's close to the town and to hiking, plus Jennifer gave us info on where to hike, eat, and raincoats for when it rained. There's a pool and a wonderful outdoor shower. Our hosts couldn't be nicer. We'll be back.
We enjoyed your visit and welcome you back anytime. Thanks again for choosing to stay with us.
Lovely Place in a Great Location
We really enjoyed our stay at this little gem in New Paltz. The location is great for visiting New Paltz and the surrounding area. We view this cottage as an excellent alternative to staying in a hotel and with very fair pricing. The house was very clean and Franky was incredibly responsive and welcoming. We'd recommend this place to anyone desiring to visit New Paltz.
Great space with welcoming owners.
My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay here. Jenny was friendly and welcoming and offered us much needed expertise about hiking in the area. The studio is comfortable and has all of the amenities you need. The availability of fresh eggs and tomatoes is an added bonus! Add in the beautiful scenery and hiking trails, as well as the lovely Robibero Winery and I can’t say enough good things about our experience!
Perfect weekend stay!!
It was the perfect spot for a weekend getaway. Franky and jenny were beyond hospitable!
Fantastic time with friendly owners
My girlfriend and I had an excellent time staying at this cozy suite for a long weekend. Franky and Jenny were great, and the fresh eggs and vegetables they gave us are some of the best I've ever had. They also provided us both with passes to the Mohonk Preserve which we used for hikes along the Gunks. As a property manager that has been running a vacation rental for 3 years, I am truly impressed with the level of hospitality and attention to detail that Franky and Jenny provide their guests. My only regret is I couldnt have stayed longer.
Exceptional Mountainside Retreat
This lovely studio with an expansive outdoor deck provides a perfect mountainside retreat, whether you are hiker, climber or couch potato. It is located on an idyllic property that sits in the shadow of the cliffs known as the Gunks. The studio is charmingly decorated and includes many lovely touches, as well as offering a supply of personal items, such as toiletries. that you may have neglected to bring with you. The owners, Jenny and Frankie, were extremely warm and inviting and are knowledgeable guides of the surrounding environs. The daily supply of fresh eggs from the free range chickens on the property, as well as Jenny's delicious baked goods, added an additional highlight to a very memorable stay.
