About Brian Oestrike

I maximize fun and adventure, from major mountaineering (glacier guiding, and then some) to running >100-mile marathons around Mt. Fuji. I have lived all over the world, from Seoul, South Korea to Brooklyn. Yet I've made my home right at the edge of Mohonk Preserve in New Paltz, NY, where adventures are out my back door every day.

I live here, because I love it—my home, my backyard, and its connection to miles and miles of fantastic climbing, running, hiking, forests, and wildlife. I'm gone a lot and love for others to share this amazing space when I'm not around!

Brian Oestrike purchased this house in 2014

Hudson Valley retreat

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was accurate. The location, layout and amenities on target. The property was well maintained and clean. The owner was great Brian was a tremendous addition to the experience. He handled any issues we had in a timely manner. We were happy with our stay.

There are many thing sot so in the area, You have Mount Mohonk. Local wineries and a wonderful distillery. Sony New paltz offers some culture but probably more during the fall session. Great restaurants in town and the surrounding area. A Tavola. CIA. Roosevelt Library. Kingston's stockade area. Rosedale's quaint cafes and farmers market.

Great time
