About Daniel Trimbach

I am a designer and live in New York City. I am also an active triathlete and travel to races most weekends during the summer.

Daniel Trimbach purchased this house in 2008

Why Daniel Trimbach chose Kerhonkson

The area is full of outdoor adventures, hiking trails, secret swimming falls, farmers markets, and antique shops. I love it because the locals are very friendly and helpful. Also the road and mountain biking opportunities are endless.

If you feel like being pampered, the house is 20 minutes from the famous Mohonk Mountain House. They have a brand new world class spa and indoor pool.

What makes this house unique

When I first saw this house, I recognized it right away. It looks like it is floating in air. During the summer, the breezes gently pass through and mother nature is always putting on a show. During the non winter months, the roof deck at night offers an unobstructed view of the stars. It is at the end of a private road and abuts a New York State land preserve.

An amazing weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was incredible and such a great escape from the city. We spent the weekend cooking and sitting by the fire in what could not have been a more perfect setting.

Close to Woodstock and only a little over 2 hours drive from New York.

Daniel could not have been a better host! We will definitely be back!

Amazing house and location

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful and modern house for a weekend getaway! It's like having a fully-equipped and completely comfy cabin in the woods with the most amazing forrest view! We enjoyed every minute. The host is extremely responsive and the house is clean, warm, and equipped with tons of cooking supplies -- which I love.

Interesting architecture in great setting

  • 5 of 5

It was a real pleasure to stay in this house for a Fall weekend. The impressive architectural structure looks great in such a rural and peaceful setting. As you would expect, the design provides great views while being comfortable and spcasious. We really enjoyed being close to some fantastic hiking country. Although the State Park car parks were full, we drove down the quiet roads, parked the car and enjoyed the spectacular autumn colours! Dan was a great host, responding quickly to our last minute request and offering to get us some breakfast as we were arriving in the middle of the night. Leaving a pass for the State Park for visitors is a lovely touch. And the instructions and local suggestions were very welcome. We had a great meal at Friends and Family II and Saunderskill Farm had temptingly delicious fruit and foods to suit everyone. We also had a a relaxing and enjoyable night out, at the local Rough Cut Brewery. All in all, a wonderfully relaxing weekend in a unique and comfortable house.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I was just here a month ago and had to come back.

I loved the view. Saw many birds and several deer on the property- was gorgeous.

As before, the owner was super nice and helpful.

Plan on staying here again.

I would highly recommend it, especially if you love nature and hiking.

Modern Hideaway In The Woods

  • 5 of 5

Marie and I spent a week in this lovely retreat in the woods and loved it. Modern conveniences in a classic architectural style. Huge windows give you the feeling that you are actually outside in the forest! Comfortable beds and beautiful and unique bathrooms along with a kitchen with all the conveniences of home. We did some shopping at Peters Market (recommended) for some food items. We also found some lovely restaurants to dine at including Friends and Family(warm, charming and friendly) in Accord, and Mountain Brauhaus in Gardiner. This place is perfect for a couple(or 2 couples) and you will enjoy the serenity. Also the sundeck on the roof is a perfect lounging spot-one recommendation I would have for the owner is to put up a shade umbrella, possibly over the picnic table as there is no shade during the day.Overall this is a great summer place and we plan to return.
