Overview

Hudson Valley House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom, large rooms, 2,000 sq ft, no pets, no smoking

This is a very clean 2 story colonial set back off the street for lots of privacy. We do have neighbors on both sides, but not close enough to look in the windows.

One reason that it is so clean is we do not wear shoes in the house or allow pets in the house or on the property. We request you wear house shoes or slippers in the home and smoking is not alowed on the property, NOT EVEN IN YOUR PARKED CAR! This way others with alergies or chemicial sensitivities will be comfortable in our home.

When you walk in our door you will come in to a large entry with a 1/2 bath, in front of you is the huge kitchen, on your left there is the oversized dining room with 5 windows and comfortable living room with a wood burning stove and 55' Smart TV. Upstairs you will find a small bedroom with a double bed on the right side of the hall. On the left side of the hall there is a large bedeoom with 3 twin beds and 3 windows to let in the morning sun and warmth. The washer and dryer are also off the upstairs hall, so there is no need to carry your dirty cloths downstairs. Across from the laundry is the linen closet with a iron and a small ironing board. At the end of the spacious hall is the square master bedroom with a cathedral ceiling, queen bed, 4 windows and 2 large dressers. The master bathroom has a vaulted ceiling, skylight, shower, 2 person jetted tub, 2 sinks, walk in closet and a toilet in it's own little room for added privacy.

There are a total of 5 beds that can accommodate 7 people and we can provide air mattresses for the other 5 guests if they are needed.

Outside there are lots of trees, wildlife and 2 in ground fire pits, a small round one & a large oval pit that has been used for luau style cooking. On the back deck there are 2 chairs and a large 4 burner grill. Natural landscaping means the native anmials feel right at home in our yard.

About The Owner

Our family has loved this home for about 5 years and we are sure you will fall in love with it also.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Hudson Valley

This house is 9 minutes from Wallkill Bethel, Watchtower Farm. 20 minutes from the Sams Point Ice Caves. 30 Minutes from Mohonk Preserve. 35 minutes from Lake Miniwaska. About 1.25 hours from Warwick & Patterson, NY. About 2hrs from New York City.

What makes this house unique

Quiet setting in the middle of nowhere but 15 min from the center of Pine Bush, NY. Each room is large and spacious. The driveway sloped down to the road so it is almost impossible to get snowed in. Our unique entry system makes it impossible to get locked out or for any previous Guest from getting back in.

Beautiful House but Communication Needs Improvement

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful and my family and I had a very nice stay. I would have liked air conditioning in the living room and dining room as the only downstairs air conditioner was in the kitchen and I didn't feel it was sufficient to cool off the whole downstairs. The only real problem we had was with communication. The owner neglected to tell us that the code for entering the house was in the VRBO app which I didn't download because I don't use VRBO very often. When we got there we couldn't get in and couldn't reach anyone for help. We finally got in with the help of VRBO. The owner was very apologetic and even offered us an extra day to stay. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay very much.

Owner's Response: I have made sure that what has happened to this guest will not happen again. This is the first time a guest has had a problem with getting in to the house. In trying to utilize technology VRBO is on the way to making things easier, however like this guest, not everyone likes to use apps. In addition VRBO informs me when a guest gets thier welcome letter. I now see that VRBO has no way of knowing if the guest actually opened the letter. The letter provides the information to unlock the door. So we are now doing what we did prior to this wonderful app, that is sending each guest the access information about 2 weeks before thier arrival. The app is still the best way to access all the features of your trip, but at least no one will be waiting for help to open the door when they arrive for the first time. About the air conditioning, this year has been incredibly hot. There are some safety issues that prevent us from having a window AC unit in the living room. If next year starts off as hot as this year we will concider a way to cool down the living room and dining room.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We once again had a great time at this property. Nice big rooms, fully stocked kitchen, large dining room and living room with TV. We also used the barbecue grill outside. Everything you would need to get away. Will come back again!

Comfortable living!

  • 5 of 5

This is a really nice home. We enjoyed our stay here and the quickness of response. The bed was AMAZING! Easy access to Wallkill and Pine Bush kingdom hall. Wi-fi provided along with blu-ray player and games for children. Everything was provided for a comfortable stay.

Owner's Response: We find that most of our guests like our clutter free home. We have just what is needed for a comfortable stay. We know kids can be restless in a new environment so we have a few toys/ games in the cabinet in the dining room. We try not to have too many that way cleaning up after the little ones is not a huge task.

Nice, clean home in the country

  • 5 of 5

This house became our home away from home for 10 days as we visited the three Bethel locations and surrounding areas. We love to travel with friends and there was room for all of us. Due to food allergies in my family, I spend plenty of time in the kitchen... there was lots of room for me to keep our food prep seperate, and it was really nice to have a meal ready in the slow cooker after a long day out & about. We also found a gluten free restaurant, Aroma Thyme, that was outstanding. The yard was huge with room for kids to run and play, we saw such a variety of wildlife too. There was a lot of fun local stuff to do, Mohonk Preserve was a highlight. Also near the quirky college town of New Paltz, where we even found a gluten-free bakery. We hope we can come back and stay in this house again!

Big, clean, nice place

  • 4 of 5

As advertised, the house is large and clean. The master bath is grand, with a walkin closet.

Bring hangers. Comfy beds. Creaky floor. Great location and yard. Owner gave good customer service.

Owner's Response: When guests leave we check things like if they accidentally packed our hangers, if so we try to replace them before the next guest comes. At times however this small detail is overlooked. And yes, ever since the house was built the upstairs sub floor has been creaky. It dose not seam to bother most guests, perhaps with the changing temperature since spring is coming it is affecting the floors.

Pefect for families visiting Watchtower Farms

  • 5 of 5

We shopped local hotels and other house rentals. This was the way to go. Very reasonable trouble free house to rent. It was so nice to come "home" to a quiet house after a busy day and make a home cooked meal. We have adult children and we all had our own rooms and space we needed. It was nice because we were able to have a cookout one night.You can't do that at a hotel. To the owners: Your rental made seeing my brother an easy and memorable experience! Thank you! We would recommend your place to others!! Brad and India Young + Family

Ice Caves are about 20 min down the road and they happen to be one of the most exciting and accessible hiking destinations in New York known as the Ice Caves in Sam’s Point Preserve, which are, thankfully, meticulously guarded by the Nature Conservancy. Containing ice caves in the depths of its crevasses, this is the greatest open fault in the United States (known geologically as the Ellenville Fault.) The strange environment consisting of globally-rare, ridge-top dwarf pines, huckleberry and blueberry fields, beautiful flowers, deep crevasses and phenomenal views seems to transport the hiker to places more arid than lush New York… perhaps the craggy, dry southwest. The 5,400 acre preserve is located atop the world-class rock climbing Shawangunk (the “Gunks”) range, which is close to the wonderful college town of New Paltz, where you can find lots of good restaurants, shopping and lodging.
