Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

DeWitt Lodge sits on a ridge amidst 4 acres of woods just outside Hurley, NY, in the heart of the Hudson Valley. The house is newly-renovated and has a mixture of modern and antique furnishings, great colors and interesting curios, it is very comfortable and is an ideal getaway location for two people, but will sleep up to four people.

Just two hours from Manhattan, it is an ideal base to discover the beauty of the Hudson Valley and the Catskill Mountains.

The area features beautiful scenery, many outdoor activities including hiking and biking, rock climbing, sailing, swimming holes and tubing. Museums, art galleries, historic homes and great restaurants are all within easy reach by car. We are less than 10 minutes from Kingston with its vibrant restaurants and arts scene; Rosendale, High Falls and Stone Ridge are 10 minutes away; New Paltz, Mohonk, Woodstock and Rhinebeck are 20 minutes away and the Shawangunks and Hyde Park are only 25 minutes away. We are also only 25 minutes from skiing at Belleayre Mountain.

The house has one bedroom with a queen size bed and direct access to the bathroom. There is also a reading/sleeping loft with a full size bed, accessed by a steep, narrow staircase.

The master bedroom has a wood burning stove, private porch and bluestone patio. There is a large living area with a sofa, TV and DVD player, a turntable with a great selection of old vinyl, and some great speakers and room to dance. There is a dining area with a table for 4, a small and funky kitchen with its own breakfast porch, and a bathroom with a tub and shower.

There is plenty of outdoor space with a table and seating as well as a gas grill. No landscaped gardens deer eat everything I plant!

The house is set back from a country road by a 100 ft. driveway in a rural neighborhood of small houses outside the historic village of Hurley with its beautiful old stone houses. It has a very woodsy cabin feel to it and is not really overlooked by any other homes; it feels quite private, but please be aware that it is not an isolated cabin in the middle of nowhere! The 4 acres of woods are raw and inhabited by many Deer, and the occasional Bear. The Thruway is about 1/4 of a mile from the house, it cannot be seen but you will hear it in the distance at times when outside, not enough to be a problem though.

Also, this is the country - there will be spiders, it's inevitable!

A car is needed as there is no local public transportation nearby. There are local taxi services available if visitors were to arrive by bus in Kingston.

About timothy lester

I have lived in the Hudson Valley for 17 years. Originally from England and arriving here via Brooklyn and Florida, I am very happy to have ended up in this beautiful part of the world! I work as an interior designer and live in Kingston. When not working I love nothing more than travelling and meeting new people.

Great cabin in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at DeWitt Lodge. The space itself is super comfortable inside and out, and the location is great for restaurants, shopping and hiking.

Your own woods outside Kingston

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice little red house surrounded by woods. Great porch with a fire pit for hanging out at the edge of the woods. If you want to go further in, there's a path that goes about 50 yards deep. If you want to be adventurous there's plenty more. It's pretty quiet. You hear the road, but I didn't really notice it at all. You hear a lot more birds. Close to Kingston Stockade District. Also close to Hurley. Quick to 87 and the Rhinebeck Bridge as well. Inside is well equipped and comfortable. We were there with out 3 year old and she loved being there.

Absolutely great place to stay, perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled from Indiana/Ohio to attend a high school graduation. From reading the VRBO description and reviews from other guests, we had fairly high hopes this would be a good place to stay. My Aunt is a stickler for cleanliness... and even she was impressed! We loved the setting in the woods, the house was thoughtfully decorated, the beds were REALLY comfortable, and the general location was perfect! Tim left us tips on where to go in Kingston, and we must give 2 thumbs up for the Dietz Stadium Diner, and also the Deising's Bakery right across the street from the diner! The inside of the cabin is wonderful to look at and explore... from the music selection to the posters/wall art to the various items throughout. My favorite was the sitting area outside the master bedroom. We did not have time to explore the grounds... but saw what looked like a nice path leading into the woods. We will just have to do that on a future trip! I would not hesitate to stay here again, and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Magical Spot

  • 5 of 5

Dewitt Lodge is a wonderful home away from home. Tim clearly takes his role as a host seriously, and the cabin is the reflection of that. When we arrived, the lights were on, our favorite radio station was playing, and there was a nice personal note, along with a bottle of prosecco in the fridge. Also, the house was scrupulously clean. The cabin was a great base for us during weekend celebrations with friends, and truly felt like home. Despite the road noise, it feels wonderfully isolated in the woods. I will definitely be back!

Lovely cottage in the woods

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully appointed cottage in the woods. Our 4-year-old daughter and chihuahua and we had everything we needed and felt right at home, and used it as the perfect home base to go off to Rhinebeck and Storm King. Very comfortable and quiet.
