Have you been wanting to hike the Appalachian Trail, but don't know where to start? Here you go! This is a cozy 3 bedroom, 1 bath, with full basement, and 3 acres of land, RIGHT ON THE TRAIL. Hop on a train from Penn Station in NYC, and head to the Appalachian Trail stop (Harlem Line - check times online), where you can then walk to the house. Enjoy mother nature at it's finest with a short hike up historic Quaker Hill section of the Appalachian Trail. Start from the steps out the back door! Pets and kids welcome! If you don't want to bushwack, make a left out of the driveway, walk a hundred feet, and the trail can be accessed from the road there.
This home is a cozy 3 bedroom bungalow style, with a newly remodeled bathroom, and kitchen. There is a washer and dryer in the basement. All bedding/linens/mattresses are new. Towels are provided. The yard itself is set on 3 acres, and has a very comfortable outdoor space, plus sunroom. The trees around the house are filled with tree frogs, and there is plenty of room in the yard to stretch out and play some games. The Appalachian Trail goes right by the back of this yard, and winds up Quaker Hill, and connects with a few other trails. Bring a map, as there are many turns, and getting lost is easy.
For those that enjoy biking, the new Harlem Valley Rail Trail is fantastic! It passes through the center of the "Great Swamp", where wildlife abounds. Bring your bikes, and your binoculars. It is possible to bike to New Paltz from the Harlem Valley Rail Trail.
