About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Connect with friends and family while sipping coffee on the porch and watching for deer, wild turkeys or humming birds. Share some of the fruits of our garden and cook in the fully equipped kitchen or grill on the porch after hiking, touring or just hanging out in hammock. Play air hockey in the attic or games or do a puzzle. Later, warm up by the wood stove, with a glass of wine or a book, get the chill out in the hot tub or roast s'mores in the fire pit in the garden and see more stars than you ever have. There are so many choices. . .

Historic Dutch colonial home located 2 doors from the Stone Church situated on 2+ acres of lawn with native species gardens, a firepit and a hot tub that seats 6. Near wine trails, hiking trails and Sam's Point Preserve. 45 minutes to New Paltz, 10 minutes to Ellenville or Pine Bush for shopping or dining.

Ideal for relaxation, family time and visits with good friends.

Beautiful fall foliage with many hiking choices at your doorstep -- later you can retire . . .by the fire or warm up in the hot tub.

Wonderful Christmas Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

What a lovely place for our family from MA and DC to meet. The house was so comfortable and fit the 10 of us great. The location is beautiful atop a mountain with a gorgeous view from the hot tub and the deck. The host was very kind and accommodating and very flexible with our last minute scheduling and arrangements. Thank you, what a nice way to keep our 60 year tradition of Christmas together going strong!

Amazing stay in beautiful house with lots of charm!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a winter weekend with a group of 6 friends (all 30). We had an absolutely wonderful time. Diane was responsive, sweet, and very accommodating. The house did take a few hours to heat up, but with a fire going in the fireplace, we were nice and toasty. We walked over to the Stone Church one day, and hiked Sam's point another. There was a ton to do in the area and it took us less than 2 hours to get there from NYC. The location was really fantastic and convenient. In terms of the house: the hot tub is divine, the property is gorgeous, and the house is charming and very well-kept. I would definitely recommend to any and all of my friends!

Absolutely perfect place for a vacation! Beautiful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a pleasure so stay in this house for the weekend. The house if clean and very well kept. You could tell that a lot of thought and time was put into making every guest's stay enjoyable. From the moment we walked in, it felt like home and we had no problem figuring out any part of the house from your clear directions. Hot tub and firepit were easy to use. The deck was large and had a great view. I can't wait to stay here again!

Beautiful house with amazing deck and garden!

  • 5 of 5

The house was pleasant and clean. The high points are their beautiful deck and gardening. Although, we didn't got a chance to use the hot tube, I did peek inside and it's one of the cleanest I had ever seem in compare to other places I had rented.

Will definitely recommend this place and come back in the future!

Beautiful home and grounds

  • 5 of 5

My friends rented this property for a man trip this August. We were pleasantly surprised by the living space and sleeping accommodations. The house was clean and provided many of the necessary items for a weekend trip. What sold us on the property were the grounds and outdoor amenities. The front yard was large and provided more than enough room for lawn games. The back deck was an excellent spot for cards, games, and the hot tub was clean and in working order. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would book this location again in a heart beat.

Owner's Response: This group was one of the neatest and most considerate groups that we have ever had and we would love to have them back. We ranked them lower on house rules and communication because we had a report of noise and we could not reach them. However, it turned out that they were only talking animately which does carry on the mountain, but that was not a cause for concern.
