Holiday Rental House
Built in 1847, this Schoolhouse was completely renovated in 2013. It sleeps up to 6 and provides guests a getaway as they look out from the edge of a gorgeous, 120-acre horse farm right near the Shawangunk Mountains (the Gunks). The private house works well for couples, families, friends' reunions, and for creative individuals seeking a quiet retreat. Inside you'll find hardwood floors, central air-conditioning, and a simple, clean design that will leave you rested. The Master bedroom has a queen bed and views of the farm. The second bedroom has twin beds that can be pushed together to make like a king.

We have towels and linens for your comfort. There is a flat screen tv, cable, high speed wifi, and Blu Ray. Enjoy the renovated kitchen which has cooking utensils and an attached dining area with a table that seats six. Outside, guests enjoy a Weber grill, an antique, iron table, and adirondack chairs. You will also love walking the carriage trails on our farm and meeting the animals. Minutes Away: The Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park have trails which are perfect for hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, and rock climbing. If you are adventurous, either skydive or watch folks skydive at The Ranch in Gardiner. Five miles away: In the Village of New Paltz, you will enjoy walking Huguenot Street, shopping, and the restaurants. There's also a wonderful rail trail. Closer, about a mile away is the Mountain Brauhaus, a fun place to step back in time for delicious German food. Two miles away is an apple orchard/pumpkin patch with a nice country store that has apples, homemade pies, veggies, etc. Bring your road bike if you want to enjoy miles and miles of low-traffic country roads - we can send you on some great routes. Or you may want to arrange a picnic and tasting at Whitecliff Vineyard, about five miles away. Please ask about English horse riding lessons - our instructors work with beginners and advanced riders. We have an indoor ring which has a heated playroom/viewing room.More

About the neighbourhood
The house sits on the edge of a 120-acre farm that has horses, goats, chickens, and donkeys. There is plenty of open space and lots of woodland. Much of the farm has gorgeous, head-on views of the Shawagunk mountains. Once you've arrived, you are welcome to walk on our carriage trails or go for a snow-shoe or cross-county ski if you are inclined. Parking is easy; the Cottage has a large, driveway and even a one-car garage. The neighborhood is tranquil. HOW DO WE GET THERE FROM NYC? If you are coming from New York City, it's likely that you will want to either drive -- about an hour and twenty minutes from the George Washington Bridge -- or take a direct bus from Port Authority: Adirondack Trailways.
