Listing amenities: Parking. Parked in the empty space right next to the house, was rudely woken up in the morning by a very nasty man banging on the livingroom window with a stick. Insisting i move my car...that it was his property..."people do it all the time". He said he had talked to the owner numerous times. How about listing ON STREET PARKING. It would have avoided a very unsettling experience. Survellence cameras discovered. (I understand the need for security) This should also be disclosed in the property listing. I do not like to be spied upon. If it's not disclosed it makes me very uncomfortable. Front door key pad did not work, had to finally open the locked box that had a key. Arrived in evening, house was 84 degrees. No air conditioners had been turned on for our arrival. Very disappointed.
My family and I, including 2 small kids, stayed at this beautiful house for a weekend in July and thought it was great for a nature getaway from the city, but still close to "life." The design is very unique and the highlight is the giant living room windows! We watched deer graze right outside the windows and our kids enjoyed the swings, the rocks, and the tree houses in the backyard. The master bedroom is huge and had a skylight, but my husband and I stayed in the loft room. We were worried that we'd wake up at the crack of dawn due to the large windows but the trees provide sufficient cover that it was actually quite shady in the morning. The stairs to the loft don't have a rail on one side, so we had to watch our kids a bit, but it wasn't a problem otherwise. We loved the location being 5 mins from downtown New Paltz and 15 mins away from Minnewaska State Park - can't really beat that! Check in was easy and Sascha was very accessible. Would definitely recommend to those looking for a unique setting in the Hudson Valley.
