We are sorry to all our long term customers but we are going to be renting full time beginning July 1. We've loved having you all stay but the rental model no longer works for us due to rising costs and to the hands on time required to run a vacation rental. We are very sorry. If you wish to rent year-round, the house comes fully furnished at a monthly price is $2100. You are responsible for electric, heating oil, cable internet, TV and phone. We take care of snowplowing, shoveling the walkway, lawn mowing, chimney and boiler cleaning care and of course all repairs and replacements. We clean the deck annually and paint one portion of the house each year as well as oil the deck every two to three years.
This enchanting Shawangunk Mountain house -- a ''home sweet home'' -- sits on a forested mountain top in the cliff-side bohemian community of Cragsmoor, NY. and a half mile walk to Sams Point Preserve, entrance to the south end of the Gunks.
Losee Cottage was renovated in 2007. It's a two-story stone-and-cedar-shingle house. The 2700-square-foot home has 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths (one on each floor). The four bedrooms sleep 8: 1 queen master bedroom; 1 full bedroom; 2 twin bedrooms (2 twin beds per room). Wraparound windows bring the outside inside with a generous deck, 900 square foot living/dining room (extendable dining table seats up to 10 and includes 10 straight-back chairs),with both radiant floor and baseboard heat, a glassed-in summer porch with dining table for 10 (not heated though guests are free to use the wood stove if they want) and front porch sitting area.
The galley kitchen is well-equipped and has an ample prep area. A gas grill and a charcoal grill are provided for cooking en plein air. With the large outdoor deck and summer dining porch, the house is a great place to entertain outside in warm weather. In the colder months, enjoy cooking and chatting while standing on a warm, radiant heated floor or entertain family in friends in the main dining/living room.
The house is a complete retreat for relaxation, enjoying the outdoors even if you never leave the deck, for get-togethers with friends and family and for spending time focusing on your art, music, or whatever work you do. It's a 2-hour drive from New York City, 45 minutes from New Paltz, 50 minutes from West Point.
The Middletown, NY, train station (for NJ Transit) is 40 minutes away; scheduled bus service in Ellenville is 15 minutes away by taxi.
The house is just minutes from great hiking and the best hang-gliding on the east coast. Just a bit further are amazing rock-climbing, mountain-lake swimming, farmer's markets, summer theater, music festivals and golf.
We regret that the house is not equipped for wheelchair accessibility.
