Great house for weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mike is wonderful to work with. Check-in and check-out is simple and painless. The house is wonderful. The furniture and overall decor are a nice mix of contemporary, mid-century, and industrial chic.

There is a "No Shoe" policy, which is a big plus for us. It means that the interior hadn't been trampled by dirty shoes from the area's many wonderful hiking trail, and as such, we felt comfortable laying down on the lush living room carpet, which is a rarity for a couple of us who have OCD tendencies.

One thing to note, especially for city-slickers like those in our group, is that there are two water sources coming into the house; the one coming in via the kitchen sink is potable, the other coming in to all other fixtures is not (well water containing sulfur?). The latter has a very strong smell and feels slimy, especially when using soap. It took some getting used to but in spite of our initial reaction, we felt refreshed and clean just the same after a shower. Perhaps the sulfuric water has health benefits for the skin. This is not a knock against the house, as it was noted in the description, the welcome binder and labeled in the kitchen. Rather, it's more a FYI to urbanites who have only known of water that is piped in from treated reservoirs. Judging from many wells that we saw on our morning jogs in the area, this is probably pretty prevalent in all the houses in the area.

To sum up, everyone in our group had a lovely time in a lovely house on a really nice summer weekend in Hudson Valley. Thanks Mike!

Owner's Response: When we purchased this place 15 years ago, coming up from NYC, we had no idea about how surrounding people dealt with water. I thought just turning a water faucet on would solve all water supply. Our mountain valley area has pockets of different contents in the underground water supply; such as sulfur & clay. As you experienced, water is very silky & soft (good for skins) -unlike NYC's hard water. Sulfur is an important ingredient to hot spring spa! So it was like having a mini spa! Water contents vary slightly from season to season. And we have an extensive water treatment system in place for a common use (shower, toilet); once finished, additional system for drinking water is used. Thanks for staying at our place & helpful input! Mike

Lovely log cabin, made our weekend special

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay - plenty of room, extra sheets/blankets, clean, modern, tastefully decorated, and cozy. My two children even loved the box of legos to play with! We’d love to stay there again!

This is a great property for a bigger family or group. The location was perfect too!

  • 4 of 5

The house itself is spacious and comfortable. We had no concerns or issues with the water, not even a sulfur odor. The owner was very wonderful, and accommodating. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

My family/friends stayed here four years ago and decided to make another weekend trip this past month.


Spacious, clean and close to attractions


Mike is very responsive


The same group stayed at the home with us 4 years ago and while we recall the sulfur water feel, the smell was much stronger this time around, especially after a warm shower the smell was unbearable unfortunately.

There seems to be a construction site off the side yard, a local restaurant told us they are building out a 14-unit retail/hotel type property which is unfortunate give that it cuts the view of the yard but it did not impact our stay. I imagine future guests may see more traffic on that street but it could potentially be a plus in terms of access to stores depending on what they build.

A beautiful and spacious house!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, spacious, modern, and perfect for large groups or families. My family rented the house for my wedding at Audrey's Farmhouse (across the street) and the close proximity was easy and super convenient. The pictures really don't do the house justice, it's got very high ceilings, tons of natural, a really cool decorative aesthetic, and not to mention a beautiful view. The location of the house is ideal as it's close to the Mohonk Preserve, on a quiet country road, and central to both Newburgh and New Paltz.

I would highly recommend this house for any and all occasions, my family loved staying here and we had a great time with no complaints.
