Cragsmoor house description
This mountain house has views from just about every window and french door. Most mornings it is possible to view local deer and their young without stepping further than to the window or walking through the front door. Wild turkeys visit as well and lots of other small creatures. It's quiet in the mountains but our Sirius Radio fills the house with wonderful music any way you prefer to hear it. There is a lovely very private walking path on the property, or more serious hiking at Sam's Point, which includes a possible visit to the ice caves less than 10 minutes from the house. If the afternoon is warm jump off our dock into your own swim pond and hang out in the screened in gazebo. This is a place to leave all tension behind and regroup. The kitchen would please any chef. But if you prefer there are several good local restaurants we can recommend. This vacation home, away from home, lends itself to a romantic hideaway and/or a great vacation spot for the entire family. The master bedroom has its own bath. There are 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The sunsets are unbelievably beautiful. You can watch them with your evening choice of drink from the back terrace.
Keywords: charming stone and wood home with lots of glass less than 2 hours from NYC. Lovely walking trails, or hike to ice caves. Great library wall for browsing and cool piano. Swim pond and screened gazebo

This wonderful property which is technically located in Ellenville, NY consisted of a spacious well decorated home and attractive surrounding land. The pictures to not do justice to the inside of the home or the property. I humbly recommend a photograph be taken from the inside of the gazebo out to the property. This will show the pond and the house. It should also be stated that they have an impressive baby grand piano in the living room. The kitchen is as advertised, a chef's dream. Only minor drawbacks are that only 1 of the 3 bedrooms have a fan so the bed rooms could get hot during the day, and warm in the evening. Also, the bugs at this time of year were fierce unless the winds were blowing, but that's nature. Lastly, it was hard to get to at first because Google maps assumed that a road (Barbara lane) was open when it was not. Follow the owners directions. We hope to go back in the fall.

About the owner: We are native New Yorkers who love the out of doors, good music and a good book. When we are in the mountain house our days are always full. We hike or bike most days. We always swim in the late afternoon. And if it rains we enjoy watching the weather from inside the house and settle in with a fire in the fireplace, some great music and a good book. Our home was recently renovated and the kitchen is wonderful. Each season we plant an organic garden and we love cooking both outdoors and in. We eat most of our meals outside. We choose the stone patio in the front for breakfasts but eat most dinners on the back deck where the sun sets.
Why the Owner Chose Cragsmoor:
We love the fresh mountain air. The nights are always wonderfully cool, even in the hottest weather. Our home was once the site of a mountain hotel where people used to come to restore their good health in the fresh mountain air. The walking is great here.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's really quiet. We find living with nature all around us is relaxing and restores us. For us it's always an amazing contrast to city life.
