Monroe house description

ENJOY a well-designed beautiful CONTEMPORARY Year round LAKE HOME on a secluded wooded oak forest in Monroe, NY, 35 miles outside of NYC (one hour drive). If interested, please tell us more about yourself because we are looking for the right fit to rent our home to.

Local area highlights include: Beautifully located between Storm King Art Center /DIA BEACON/ BEAR MOUNTAIN STATE PARK. Some personal favorites include the Blooming Grove organic farmers market, and the nearby villages of Warwick, Sugarloaf, Chester, and Cornwall. A bit further out you could also enjoy the towns of Cold Spring, Garrison and Hudson. Shoppers can go to the nearby Woodbury Commons.

House highlights include: private dock on property with full access to freshwater lake for swimming, kayaking and lounging; outside picnic table/chairs, fire pit, ping pong, foosball table, gas BBQ grill, two indoor wood-burning stoves, kayaks, canoe, outdoor decks, indoor dining table and chairs that seat eight, kitchen island with counter and four bar stools, ceiling fans in all rooms, linens, washer and dryer,
Wireless internet.

An Architect designed our house with the spare bedrooms as sleeper cabins that are attached to the main house by a small set of stairs off the deck of the main house.
Main house: master bedroom with master bathroom and queen bed, living room has two contemporary German design convertible couches that are queen size and a bathroom with shower.

The quest bedrooms are the two sleeper cabins: one has four bunk beds, and the other has two twin frame beds and they are attatched to the main house by a small deck and a few steps.

RENTAL RATES: $2,300 per week (peak season) rate for two people – up to $3,900 for larger groups, with a maximum of 10 individuals (including children). The rate for each overnight guest beyond the first two renters is $200 each additional guest, regardless of the length of stay during the rental period. A two night weekend is automatic three night prorated rate and a minimum of three night charge is for all rentals at $400 per night for two guest. A refundable security deposit of $1500 and a cleaning charge of $150 apply to every rental per week and

The road is plowed by the town but the personal walk way and drive way must be shoved by renter.
All payments and deposits must be made in cash before rental begins. Well-behaved, housebroken pets may be allowed (with written consent of owner) but must supply a dog bed or crate and keep the pets off the furniture
To be very clear so it is a win win- the house was designed with out a tv but we do have high speed internet
