Kerhonkson house description
The privacy and comfort of this house saves us from the rigors of city living. Bright and airy with mountain views.
There's a huge deck, equipped with a top of the line grill. There are skylights in the living room, dining room and one of the upstairs bedrooms. The kitchen is a cook's dream and completely stocked. It is a magical and amazing place that really allows you to feel at one with nature without forfeiting all the comforts we know and love. Wifi, cable television, large screen TV and indoor and outdoor stereo system.
This a great house if you have kids. One of the bedrooms has bunk beds and a pack n' play. There's a swing set and slide outside. Two bedrooms with mountain views have a queen sized bed, and a twin bed with a trundle in the fourth room. master bath has an oversized soaking tub, and the guest shower is a rain shower.
Ten to fifteen minutes drive gets you to many wonderful attractions and activities.

Beautiful house in the woods
Beautiful house in the woods
We had a splendid holiday in this house with our two kids. The house is modern, clean, with a warm atmosphere which allows for lovely dinners (the open kitchen is just great!) and family evenings watching movies in front of the real wood fireplace. Big windows and a skylight provide a relaxing view of the surrounding woods. The bedrooms are comfortable, the bathroom big and new. This a perfect house if you have kids. One of the bedrooms has bunk beds and a pack n' play. There's a swing set and slide outside. And a lot of outdoor space to run around. This is a great opportunity for a relaxing vacation in the nature, fifteen-minute drive from grocery, shops, and local attractions, not to mention the beautiful Minnewaska State Park which borders the house property.

Quiet Family Getaway in the Woods
Quiet Family Getaway in the Woods
My family (Husband, 3 kids 11,9,7) spent a week here and had such a great time! The house sits back off the beaten path and is surrounded by woods. It was a great setting for day trips to the area preserves or just a hike out the back door! There is a swingset but it is a bit dilapidated. If you feel like staying in, it is well stocked with games, games and more games! There are also MANY movies to choose from if your up for a night of veggin' on the comfy couch. It was very clean and well taken care of and has a wonderful, completely stocked kitchen. But bring your groceries, the nearest shop is about 20 minutes. (we went to New Paltz) If you don't feel like cooking, there are many good restaurants in New Paltz and the surrounding area. (Great German food at Mountain Brauhaus in Gardinier) This was definitely a home away from home for us and there was so much to do and see in the area. (Highly recommend Mohonk Mountain House trails!!) Also, the owner was just a text away if I had any questions! We had a great stay and would definitely recommend this property!

We really enjoyed the house - it is beautiful. We've been looking to buy a house in the region and have seen a lot of houses but nothing as nice as yours.

About the owner: My wife and I have two kids ages 3 and 5 and love this house and property. We use it year round and have a great time in the house, on the property and in the surrounding areas. We hope to find families and couples who will love it as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Kerhonkson:
In the immediate vicinity, you can find hiking, fishing, hunting, rock climbing, antiquing, farms, skiing, snow shoeing, archery, biking, golf, tennis, swimming, birdwatching. The house sits just an hour and forty minutes from the upper west side of Manhattan but offers the real outdoors complete with all nature has to offer. There are only four houses past us going up the mountain so the privacy and quiet is really amazing. There is an 86 ft waterfall a short hike from the house as well as a beautiful swimming hole. We have a creek that runs through the property. One of the entrances to Minnewaska state park is a 10 minute walk up the road and leads you through a giant shale pit ideal for kite flying biking, sledding, star gazing. You can also cross the creek from the property and enter the park that way.

In the immediate vicinity, you can find hiking, fishing, hunting, rock climbing, antiquing, farms, skiing, snow shoeing, archery, golf, tennis, swimming, birdwatching, biking.
