Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Pine Bush - A Newer Home w/ a Natural Yard

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

Our house is 1 hour & 20 minutes from both Patterson and Warwick, NY. Only 7 minutes from Wallkill.

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 2 sofas, a wood burning stove and 55' Smart TV & Bluray player. 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 Brian

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

Brian purchased this house in 2005

Why Brian 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.

Clean, had everything we wanted/needed. Owner was easy to work with. Nice open first floor plan.

  • 5 of 5

Two families with children staying for the weekend. Enjoyed the open space - indoors and out. Multiple views of yard from most rooms allowed parents to relax and prep meals while keeping an eye on young ones outside. Large dining room, living room and kitchen area allowed easy flow and conversation and/or room to relax in evenings. Newer appliances-very clean/open kitchen. We didn't use fire pits or stove as weather was still quite warm for mid October. Easy drive to Cragsmoor and Sams Point-15 minutes. Also pretty easy drive (30minutes) to orchards in Gardner area. Couldn't figure out the cable, but DVD worked fine - better to converse with loved ones. Wifi was easy - worked well with multiple devices connected. Private, quiet, clean, relaxing.

Owner's Response: We love it when our guests have a great time with thier family. Not having cable TV has helped many families reconnect on vacation. We disconnected the cable 2 years ago because of the high price and since many guests were having a hard time navigating through the several hundred channels. Since we have wifi and a smart TV guests can still stream local news, weather and plenty of other things. Cable TV is not listed as a feature in the house, but we understand since it is so common many guests just assume we have it.

Perfect! Clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful five day stay. The house was perfect for us Our first requirement for a rental is that it be clean. The Pine Bush house is squeaky clean. The woody setting is picturesque. The dining room table is large enough for the whole family to gather around and eat together. The only drawback was that we couldn't stay longer. We highly recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Since most guests love staying even just a few extra hours in our clean home, when we can we offer a late check out option even if it not requested. Unfortunately this time our dear friends had to get back to the real world and could not take advantage of our offer. Good news is, there's always next time.

large home perfect for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had a family gathering during the Labor Day weekend in this beautiful house. The house was kept very clean which was a big positive for us. It felt like home away from home. The house was not too far from Minnewaska state park and the Mohonk preserve. We visited those places to hike with the family. We enjoyed cooking in the large kitchen. There is a large backyard where kids played and the adults sat outside to enjoy the peace. This house was a perfect place for 9 of us to spend time together.

House was a perfect set up for our group (7). Location was perfect as well. Loved the front and rear porch and were able to enjoy seeing the deer run through the trees. Very peaceful and quiet surroundings. All appliances worked and we were able to make full use of the kitchen. We were able to do laundry and use the grill. We had guest over and had plenty of room to entertain for all. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful location / property exceptionally clean

  • 5 of 5

We were VERY HAPPY with the conditions of this house. 2 full baths with a 1/2 bath (downstairs) was plenty for our 3 adults and 4 children. We found the kitchen well stocked with the basic seasonings and plenty of pot/pans and a grocery store 15 minutes away. We were very thankful to have plenty of hot water for all of us to take hot showers in a row. Our trip consisted of traveling to Patterson New York (45 minutes) Wallkill NY (12 minutes) and Manhattan 2 hrs. The Catskills are beautiful. We even saw a bear!! I would recommend this house to any family or group.

Bravo to great owners!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after a long drive to this beautiful, clean home. Everything was exactly as described on the website. We cooked several meals and had everything we need, even enough spices to make an impromptu salad dressing! The house is clean. Completely uncluttered. Any time I had to ask Bryon or Jeff a question, they responded if not immediately, within an hour or so. There were plenty of linens and the beds were so comfortable! The sheets were a high quality too! The owners have thought of every possible thing you may need to make your stay enjoyable. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the evening. We loved watching the squirrels and the rabbits. We traveled to Wallkill (right down the road) and Patterson. We drove into the city for a Met tour. Bryon was so helpful to this country girl, helping navigate the most relaxing way into the city. We went to Sam's Point and hiked to the ice caves. My husband wandered around in the woods behind the house too. It was nice there were local caretakers that never seemed inconvenienced when asked questions. All in all, it was a perfect vacation and we look forward to staying here again.

Owner's Response: Before this guest arrived they said they want any suggestions on a relaxing way to the City. The city is stressful enough they wanted to enjoy the ride, so I gave them my 2 cents worth. We have added the 2 optional scenic routes for driving in to NYC on the vrbo app. They are under the transportation icon, along with train info in to Grand Central Station. We are surprised at how many guests still drive across the country to get to NY, and we are glad our house can be the refreshing oasis at the end of thier trip. Please let us know what your plans are so we can add any helpful info to the new vrbo app, for your access and for others also. There is a folder on the kitchen wall with local suggestions if you have an open schedule.

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.
