About Owner / Property Manager

Professional artist with my gallery on the adjacent property to the house. You are welcome to view the gallery and, if you wish, make arrangements to paint with me in my studio.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this house in 2000

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Hudson Valley

Great property to relax in and get away from it all. Nice and secluded, you cannot see (or hear) the neighbors nor they you. Conversely, if you want to throw a party you will not be disturbing anyone....The best of both worlds!

Amazing house, giant pool with huge deck, quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. Donna was super as well, great to deal with and so nice and helpful.

The pool at this house is amazing, it is huge, and has a massive deck with a ton of seating. The pool is also set in a great yard with no visible neighbors and a great view. The house and pool are both off the road making it so quiet and peaceful.

Our kids loved taking baths in the master bathroom where there is a huge bath tub.

The kitchen is made for people that love to cook, it has everything.

The living room with the pinball machine is so cool as well.

We really loved this house, and would recommend it to everyone.

Simply superb

  • 5 of 5

To call this a "house" would be a great injustice. This is a "home". It's warm, welcoming, and the layout allows for everyone to be together even if they are in different rooms.

The home was absolutely immaculate and had everything we could possibly need to enjoy our stay... clean towels, plenty of dishes, mugs, glasses, and utensils, the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms/showers were spotless. The gourmet kitchen is fully stocked and is filled with all appliances you could possibly need. If you like to cook, you will LOVE this kitchen. It's inviting enough for a casual cook, and equipped enough for a professional chef.

The pool was gigantic and salt-filtered, so you don't have to worry about any chemicals like chlorine irritating your skin.

Donna was simply a pleasure to deal with when it came to renting her home. She was extremely helpful and informative about the area, and was always available to answer our questions. She even gave us a tour of her fantastic art gallery which is located down a short path from the house.

Overall, if you are visiting a town that is very eco-friendly and health conscious, you HAVE TO stay in this home. It is conveniently located (only 10 minutes to the heart of New Paltz) and has tons of room.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home.

Great property, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying at Donna's house for almost a week. It has an amazing kitchen, a great pool and is just an overall perfect place for a family vacation away from it all. Donna was extremely helpful and friendly and she went out of her way to make sure everything was fine. We would definitely recommend to others, and will definitely stay again in the future.

Fantastic Getaway Home in the country

  • 5 of 5

Great house with very friendly hosts. Ken and Donna have a house made for a getaway, with a huge kitchen, grill, deck, massive pool, comfortable bedrooms and of course the pinball machine. My wife and I and our extended family spent my birthday weekend at the house and really enjoyed all it had to offer. Don't forget to visit the gallery next door!!

A wonderful escape with lots of nearby fun!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Ken and Donna's house in New Paltz/Gardiner recently, and it was a great place to be even in -14 degree weather! The house is comfortable with a great kitchen for cooking (and enough spices to keep you cooking for weeks on end), a great living room with fire place, and grounds that allow for nice exploration for the kids. and deer. lots of deer!

Ken and Donna are incredibly friendly and are nearby at their art gallery to answer questions/fix problems, and couldn't be kinder hosts. Highly recommend this place, and hope to return when I can actually see the pool out from under all of the snow.

Car: recommended

Plenty to do here, or not, if that is your preference. Hiking, tennis, fishing, swimming, golf and bike riding. Plenty of great food in the local restaurants and no shortage of adult beverages from wineries, distilleries and local watering holes. Or just stay at the house and chill out by the pool or in front of the TV. Whichever is your preference you will return home recharged and ready for anything!
