Cragsmoor house description

Relax in the Shawangunk Mountains! This house is newly renovated and ready for you to enjoy. Have coffee in the morning sun on the back patio, then take a stroll through through the gorgeous Cragsmoor Historic District to admire all the fabulous houses that make this mountaintop hamlet so unique.

With the Stone Church down the road, Sam's Point Preserve up the road and Bear Hill Preserve around the corner, there are so many destination options to choose from within walking distance. A short drive will bring you to the State forest, excellent golf courses, hang-gliding, sky-diving, rock climbing, antiquing and farmers markets where you can pick up fresh, locally grown produce for your evening meal!

Nestled in the Shawangunk Mountains, this house has been a destination spot for those escaping the fast pace of the outside world since the turn of the last century, when its first artist owners converted this mountaintop structure into a quaint retreat that we recently upgraded with modern amenities for you to enjoy today!

The house has five bedrooms. The first floor bedroom has a queen sized bed. Upstairs there are four more bedrooms, one with a full sized beds, one with bunk beds, one with a full size bed and a twin bed, and the fourth bedroom has a king size bed. There are mountain views from most of the rooms. There is a large, modern eat-in kitchen with a bay window keeping it bright and light filled as well as a sofa for relaxing while sipping coffee and wine as meals are prepared. The living room is large, well appointed and has a talavera tiled wood burning fireplace.

The kitchen is totally remodeled and includes a huge center island, euro style appliances, farmhouse sink and green stone countertops The bathroom has a deep soaking tub.

                            House was great and Jen (the owner) was extremely friendly and helpful! The house itself was clean, spacious, and easily held our 9 person group. All of the bedrooms rooms have clear glass doors on them, making privacy a little lacking with large group. The house is off the main roads a bit, and was a little hard to find at night without a GPS, but the area is scenic, rural and a great place to get away. For the price, you can't beat this house, and I would definitely rent this house again or recommend it to a friend.

                            Beautiful location in a charming mountain house. So close to hiking and outdoor activities. Had a great weekend and not to far from NYC.

                            Perfect, seamless, awesome homestay! From the open kitchen, to the surrounding sights, to the extremely last-minute hospitality (our original house fell through 2 days prior to our arrival date), it was exactly what we'd hoped for. The house slept our large group (10 adults) comfortably and could not have hoped for more. I didn't know much about Shawangunk or Cragsmoor before this weekend, but our hike at Sam Point Reserve, as well as walks on the roads near the house were stunning. Thank you for providing us with the perfect fall getaway. I hope to make a return trip sometime in the future.

                            Jen was great to deal with, not a stressful situation at all. The home is great, very accommodating for our family who was there celebrating my wife's birthday. Every one of us was comfortable and the kids enjoyed the toys and backyard. Every night for sunset, we walked to the Stone Church - just a short walk down the block - and having the family together like that was truly beautiful. A really quick ride to Sam's Point, and about 40 mins to Lake Minnewaska, was just perfect driving through all that beautiful area. We were truly sad to leave. A truly memorable weekend with family at this lovely home.

                            We celebrated our wedding here in August of 2013 and had our extended family stay with us for the weekend at the Cragsmoor Home. The property is beautiful, the land well maintained and rustic, and the house is immaculate and unique in every way inside. We felt right at home all weekend, and everyone had a wonderful and comfortable weekend. The kids had a huge yard to play in, and the kitchen was large enough for our entire group to eat in together. We loved the place so much we had our wedding right in the back yard between two beautiful pine trees. It was by and far the best rental I have ever had in my life, and we hope to return each year to the Cragsmoor Home. Thank you owners for allowing others to use your beautiful home!

                            Attentive owners/managers. Internet iffy. Great location for driving to hiking, small town hang outs, driving by farms, and in general getting away from the city. The house itself is spacious and great for large numbers of people. This is a great weekend getaway house for a group of people with a car and some incentive to make it their own for their stay.

                            Prior to my wedding at the Cragsmoor Stone Church and after a rehearsal dinner at Stony Brae Restaurant & Pub, I stayed in this beautiful home with my bridesmaids. It was spacious and comfortable and the perfect place for us to relax and rest before the big day. We woke to a beautiful sight of the sun rising over the mountain just outside of the bedroom windows and readied for the day with breakfast in the huge, naturally lit kitchen and plenty of space to prepare for the wedding. I highly recommend this home for use not just for a wonderful local accommodation for a wedding, but a great getaway in the mountains with fantastic nearby views and hiking!

                            A great home in the heart of the mountains! The owner was accommodating and friendly and the house was spacious, sunny and comfortable for our family of 5. The Stone Church down the street is charming with breathtaking views and a lawn perfect for picnics on the grass or lounging and reading a book. My younger children really enjoyed the nearby hiking and summer adventures. Our whole family enjoyed the beauty and relaxation of this mountaintop retreat and hope to be back for a visit again soon!

                            We stayed here for a wedding this past summer on the mountain. Myself, my daughter's family which included a 18 month old, another daughter and my brother and son. Plenty of space for all of us. The house was very light and airy, homey, and had everything we could possibly need. The area was great for a picturesque stroll. We were able to be a meeting spot for other family members as they arrived on the mountain for the wedding events. The house was had a very relaxing atmosphere.
