Great Stay in the Gunks!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our weekend stay! Two adults and two children slept comfortably with room to spare. The house is clean, meticulously maintained, and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, and the deck with barbecue was terrific.

The location of the house is great! We hiked and biked out the front door. The owners were friendly, helpful, and extremely accommodating. We look forward to returning to the area and hopefully this house soon!

the perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5
after years of coming up to the Gunks we have finally found the most ideal place to stay.

the house is simply perfect. situated in a private road not far from route 44/55 it is easy to find but quiet and very peaceful. Just a 10-15 minute drive from New Paltz, Minnewaska and Mohonk.

the owners have a stylish yet warm aesthetic giving the interior a well designed comfortable ambiance. there is a good amount of space for sleeping and eating with a few well-sized bathrooms.

I love to cook and found the kitchen very well appointed. there is a huge deck in the beautiful garden with a BBQ and dining bench for alfresco meals.

acres of grounds for the kids to explore.

there is even a lake a short walk from the house where you can boat or swim.

for winter or summer we totally recommend the house. but please don't book it when we want to go! we loved it:)

Lovely house, beautiful location, extensive grounds.

  • 4 of 5
Charming, beautifully renovated home.Set well back from the quiet road. Great deck with extensive grounds and a walk up into the woods behind. Well supplied (we did have to purchase our own paper towels and, oddly, clothes washer detergent..why?). All else is in place and quite pretty. Quite expensive but has a lot to offer, especially the excellent local lake for quick dips before venturing off to the Gunks, and quality appliances, etc. tho no microwave. Problem: one of the beds is absolutely unsleepable (the one surrounded by the wood frame). The mattress is really not meant for anything that we could tell, being inferior foam, and our son had to switch to the floor. That should be corrected. The sleeping arrangements in the fireplace room are best left to dogs, as there are two giant dog beds but not much else that's good for humans. Two massive dogs patrol the premises. Our pup was nervous ! Owners require hefty security deposit. Pleasant, enthusiastict owners live right next door.Views of the Gunks are seasonal, when there are no leaves! On the whole, we recommend.

Owner's Response: we have added a micro wave to the kitchen. Usually we have washing detergent above the washer and in this case it would have been easiest to ask us for some and also for paper towels when it runs out.
Since we are a dog friendly property we left two dog beds in the fire place room which also features 2 lounge chairs and a sofa.
The mattress is a king size memory foam mattress which has been liked by many guests. It is a personal preference and not all preferences can be pleased. We do not stock different kind of mattresses in the basement and it would be impossible to do so.
We charge a security deposit of $1000 due to high quality appliances and custom designed furniture throughout the house.
We do have two large dogs but we coordinate them going into the yard with out guests.....

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5
The house is located in a very quiet area, at the end of a private lane. We were there in mild winter weather and it was nice and cosy inside (but do turn down the heat at night, or it'll be too hot in the bedrooms). The deck and garden must be wonderful in warmer weather. The kitchen has lots of quality utensils. There's a living-room with a nice woodburning fireplace and a beautiful dining-room. The whole house was very clean. Great stay, we hope to be back soon!

Great Getaway!

Everything about this experience was great- from ease of organization to great amenities, comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen, and more. An easy trip from NYC and close to New Paltz. Simone was gracious and professional. We would definitely return.

What a great weekend! The house was spotless and all the amenities are available to make your weekend run smooth. I was up early and walked the path each morning to the top of the hill. Great romping around room for my big dog. There was even a dog bed by the fireplace....great touch! New Paltz was just a short drive away. The owners were welcoming and friendly. I will be back!
