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.

Great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 10 and stayed over 4th of July weekend. The pictures are an accurate representation of the house - great back deck, good size rooms, big living room / dining area and a nice big table outside as well. While the weather was hot (mid-80s during the day) the house was generally cool and we even used the hot tub as it cooled off at night. The house is in good condition - all appliances work well, including a well maintained grill & hot tub. Diane is very responsive and flexible. Our group was a little concerned about the tenants next door being around but they were barely around and even when we did see them, totally respected privacy. So much fun sitting around the fire pit / hanging out on deck. Highly recommend.

A beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation was perfect for the 11 of us. Beautiful grounds and hot tub to relax in. Enjoyed evening entertainment around the fire pit. Homely and welcoming house interior. Little extras in the pantry came in handy, thank you. Wonderful efficient washing machine and dryer, the best of any house we stayed in. Can recommend this property for any family or large group. The younger members of our family enjoyed the air hockey in the attic. Would stay here again.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect - so wonderfully cleaned and maintained. There was some great hiking nearby, the Bear Hill Preserve was ideal for smaller kids.

We loved the kitchen and deck areas - we cooked out both nights. The outdoor fire pit was great for s'mores. Overall, a lovely trip, we will definitely be back!

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in the Spring and the house had everything we needed. There was a fireplace, hot tub and game room for the kids. The back yard had plenty of room for the kids to run around. Overall, it was a great home.

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!
