Situated on a seven-acre, woodsy setting, with stream running through the property, you can spend a lovely day outdoors without having to leave the property. The four-bedroom 1940s farmhouse is located in Rifton, New York (located ten minutes from New Paltz and five minutes from Rosendale). Hiking/mountain biking trails accessible from the property. This house also features a rustic wood-burning sauna in a separate building.

Barbeque on our Spacious outdoor deck, relax on the hammock and roast marshmallows over an out door fire. This house is ideal for two families to share as it has four bedrooms and two baths. It is set up for children with portable cribs, high chair, toys, books, and wooden jungle gym... Everything you will need for an outdoorsy family vacation. All less than two hours from New York City!

Take in fabulous views, lakes, hiking, climbing, biking, and cross-country skiing located in the nearby Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park, both a 15-minute drive from the house.

                        Our family, 3couples, gathered at this house for Thanksgiving weekend. The comfortable bedrooms suited everyone, and large living/kitchen area was perfect for visiting. The updated kitchen was a dream for cooking. Cooperative and responsive owner is an added bonus. We have been renting in this area for 5 years; everyone agreed that this was the best house yet!

                        Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children.

                        This house and property are totally lovely. The house itself is spacious, and airy with a lovely floor plan. It has a generous kitchen with lots of counter space and is a very comfortable space to make meals with friends. While this house is perfect for families with children, it doesn't feel totally over run with kids' stuff. My own kids spent much of their time playing on the swingset out back. The location is perfect, a short drive to New Paltz where there are numerous food options and shops. I highly recommend this home if you're looking for a relaxing, comfortable and warm place to get away.

                        We loved this stay. Will certainly return if we can in future. Gorgeous setting, clean well kept home, excellent management. Felt right at home :) We were there for two weeks and used house as hub for family reunion after memorial concert in my mothers name in New Paltz. So we had plenty of room and everyone loved it.

                        We have been coming to the New Paltz area for several years in a row because of the great hiking, and we have finally found the perfect house. We were 4 adults and 3 kids (4,4, and 6). The house is spacious, airy, nicely furnished, and the master bedroom windows are breathtaking. Our kids loved the huge yard, the swingset, and the hammock. Walking down to the stream and catching frogs and newts was a hit! We ate and read on the spacious deck every day. Everything we wanted to do, from great hiking to horse-riding to an awesome farm visit to a bowling alley (on a rainy day) was no more than 15-20 min away. The owners were very nice and accommodating. We hope to come back to the house for many years to come.

                        We loved the house and found it to be clean, spacious, well-mantained and so comfortable. The master bedroom is newly renovated and almost like a big tree house as it sits on the 2nd floor and is surrounded by trees. The house has a large yard for kids to enjoy, with a running stream a short walk away and the deck is big and great for grilling. The owners were very helpful and answered all our questions and everything was ready for us when we arrived. There are so many outdoor activities in the area that it's hard to decide what to do. Hiking, rock climbing, rock scrambling, swimming, walkin... We can't wait to come back.

                        I would definitely recommend this house for a family getaway. We were 5 adults and two toddlers. The house was well-equipped with everything we needed ........ even had two cribs, toys, books, swings, and a large kitchen where everyone could pitch in. We ate on the patio and relaxed on the hammock, surrounded by beautiful trees and woods. Even took a nice hike through the woods at the back of the house.

                        We spent a great long weekend with our two-year olds. The living room is spacious and full of light. We cooked in the open kitchen. The dining table is right in front of a large window with a lovely view over the garden. We loved the master bedroom, with huge windows and high ceiling. The garden is on the edge of the woods, a small creek runs through it. Very quiet area with beautiful nature. We had a lovely visit in this beautiful home!

                        Numbering six adults, an infant and three pre-schoolers, our family was very satisfied with this house and its spacious outside grounds. The house is clean, with lots of windows, well-equipped, has comfortable beds, as well as a modern kitchen and a (Sub-zero) refrigerator/freezer that held everything we needed for such an age-range of diners. We enjoyed eating on the spacious deck. It's a great house for children with many indoors and outside opportunities to keep busy. Internet connection was stable. There is a large flat-screen TV (though we didn't turn it on) and our cell phones all worked at the house with no problem. We appreciated (and used) the washer/dryer AND the dishwasher! I estimate that the town of New Paltz is about a ten-minute drive (it has two good grocery stores and many restaurant opportunities), and the State Park and Mohonk Mountain House are another 20 minutes or so beyond that. (A car is essential here.) The owner, is very responsive and pleasant to work with. We'd love to return sometime and hike in those scenic mountains. **We highly recommend this fun country home!**

                        My family stayed recently at the house and had a great time. The backyard and the fire pit were huge hits for my two kids (under age 5), along with the deer that visited in the mornings during breakfast time. The area is very quiet and property provides privacy. We found the owners very responsive and interested in making sure we had everything we needed.

                        We just returned from a wonderful 4 days in this house. Everything was as it was described and the layout was just perfect for a family. We had 2 couples and 2 kids (age 4 & 5) and there was plenty of room for all of us. The open kitchen/dining/living area was a great place for everyone to hang out. The weather was perfect fall weather and the kids played in the huge yard and on the play set. The adults were fighting over time in the hammock and everyone enjoyed walking in the woods and down to the stream. We cooked a lot and the kitchen was well-stocked, which made it easy. Donna, the owner, was super-responsive and had great ideas and suggestions for us. Very close to New Paltz and conveniences, but felt very quiet and like a real escape!! Highly recommend this wonderful home! We will be back for sure.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: We started coming to this area years ago to rock climb. Now we love to get away with the whole family when we get the chance. The kids love being able to run free in the back yard and experience nature.

                      Why the Owner Chose New Paltz:
                      We love the New Paltz area! We started coming here years ago to rock climb in the gunks. Since we have had kids we have discovered, many beautiful hikes, swimming holes, farms, horseback riding, berry and apple picking. It is really great to have an escape from the city, the kids love it, we don't even have to leave our back yard to have a relaxing nature filled vacation!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our house is back from the road, and opens onto huge deck that overlooks a beautiful back yard. We have a new cedar jungle gym that entertains the kids for hours, as well as a large sand pit. Behind our yard we have acres of woods to walk, ski, snowshoe and toboggan in. We loved that our house has some country charm and does not feel at all suburban. Our property has a stream that runs along besides it, you can walk along this stream to get to a beautiful waterfall.
