This cozy cottage along with two barns was once part of a working farm. Hand-hewn original oak post and beam construction is exposed; it gives the cottage and its cathedral ceilings, a light drenched airy ambiance. Equipped with a full kitchen, one gets the country rustic atmosphere without forfeiting any modern conveniences. The reclaimed wood siding in the bedroom catches the early morning light reflections of the sunrise. Hand-crafted details abound, the cabinetry, hand-made glass, and photography add accents to the decor.
The bucolic surroundings are a great place for respite. One can relax in our perennial gardens or sit in the shade of the one hundred year old wooden barn amongst the hummingbirds and barn swallows. At night sit on our deck and enjoy a starry night or moon shadows without street-lighting to impede the night sky.
Located in Stone Ridge, we are only minutes away from the historic village center which is convenient for restaurants, groceries, and farm fresh products. At the same time, we are located on a quiet country road. Our landscape is peppered with horse farms, corn fields and even an alpaca farm!

I have been lucky to have lived in many different places. Through my training as an architect, I learned to have a great respect for the natural and built environment. When I travel, I like to understand a place through the lens of the people living there and their history. So when I saw our barns for the first time, I fell in love with them immediately. The barns and the rural landscape surrounding them are really a part of our shared iconic heritage. Unfortunately, each year many more barns disappear. We have been slowly renovating the barns on our own. Come enjoy them and relax in our bucolic surroundings!
My husband and I booked this perfect little cottage for a couple of nights and we absolutely loved it! The owners were extremely accommodating and even offered us an extra night as we had to come a day late because our son woke up with a fever the morning we had planned to go. They also offered to come out and plow the snow before we departed. They had great suggestions about food and what to do in the area.
The cabin was perfect for us. It was cozy and comfortable. There were plenty of amenities including tea and coffee. We enjoyed watching the beautiful snowfall and staying in for a couple of days. There are also a lot of very cute towns nearby for exploring and we had some yummy meals out during our visit. There was a local grocery just up the road which was very convenient.
Overall, we loved our stay and the cabin. It was nicely decorated with a very open feel. Since the space is small the decor was sparse and modern so as not to overcrowd the place. We liked it a lot. Also, it was very very clean.
We will definitely be visiting again and highly recommend this place and the owners.
The location is as picturesque as you can get in this adorable rental. The owners were amazing at communicating with us and everything was extremely clean. Would definitely stay again and recommend.
Central to hiking and great dining, we've been able to cook in the kitchen with food from nearby stores. It's simply a charming little cottage. This is the 2nd time we have stayed here, could not recommend it more.
Property was as advertised! Clean, quiet, with pleasant owners! We'd stay there again for sure!
Had an amazing time in Stone Ridge in this very cozy home
Everything went well for my partner and I at this cottage over MLK weekend. Reinhold and Lisette were easy to communicate with via text and email leading in to the weekend, but weren't overbearing at all. It was a cold weekend (it was January) but the space stayed warm. The property is on a quiet street outside of High Falls, and the cottage is on this sort of open yard next to two functioning barns. I think it would be very pretty in the summer.
The red cottage is a small, 1 bedroom space with a vaulted ceiling so does not feel cramped. You walk in to the living area and have a couch and table, and the room flows in to a kitchen area with a great standing bar. Then to the left, there is a smaller area/room where the bed, desk, and wardrobe are. Everything worked well enough - wifi was strong, had hot water. Very clean, hardwood floors, and was comfortable for 2 to hang out in and eat and watch a movie.
I think the location would be perfect if you were looking to poke around the little picturesque towns in the area like High Falls, Stone Ridge, Rosendale, etc, all 10 or less mins away. Would also be good if you had to work a bit over a weekend, as there is a table and desk to work at. We tried Nest's Egg and Lekker, both very close and both very good. About 5 minute drive to a shopping area with a grocery, pharmacy, bank and dunkin donuts. For us, it was a bit far from the hiking we wanted to do in Slide Mountain wilderness (40 mins), but that's our own fault. Also, its not remote, wooded, or nestled away on a hillside, nor is it particularly walkable; you are out in the country, of course, but its near other homes.
Its not the most luxurious of all cottages, so keep that in mind, and like I said, small - I wouldn't want to bring the kids, would feel cramped. The fridge buzzes a little bit, a normal sound for such an appliance, but generally one doesn't sleep in such proximity. Just something to know. The bathroom is quite small, as is the fridge and oven. The bed is a queen (maybe a twin?), and the place is tastefully decorated but in sort of an IKEA-chic style? Anyway, something to know if you are trying to get all snobby or indulgent about it - we found it right up our alley.
