Red Gate Cottage is situated on a little over an acre on Mountain Rest Road, the former carriage road to the famed Mohonk Mountain House. You'll feel far from the madding crowd in your little alpine hideaway, yet welcome the short drive to town (New Paltz (2.2 mi.) and High Falls (8.0) and Rosendale (7.0) for a quick run to Rock and Snow for gear or a bite of authentic Japanese at Hokkaido.
The cottage's convenient location makes it a perfect home base for taking in all the Hudson Valley has to offer. The area's most important sites are all within a short drive: hike the Rail Trail, swim and picnic on the lake at Minnewaska State Park or hire a guide and rock climb the Gunks. Mohonk and New Paltz are also big with cyclists, kayakers and hikers.
Complimentary passes for two to the historic Mohonk Preserve, come with the house and provide you access to their magnificent trails. Venture a little further and enjoy Woodstock, take in the Zen Mountain Monastery, see a concert in Esopus or venture across the river to Bard, Frederic Church's Olana or the wonderful city of Hudson. Of course, antiquing and restaurants are abundant as are local produce and livestock.
Red Gate Cottage is tastefully decorated in a contemporary, rustic style. This cottage-style house has two bedrooms, one full bath, an open and inviting kitchen/living room and dining space made especially cozy with its centrally located wood stove and vaulted ceilings. Cook up a great meal with the locally grown organic produce or meats you procured at the Farmers Market in town or melt away the afternoon in the adjoining sun-room with lovely french doors to the deck and garden.
For late spring, summer and fall guests, our membership at the nearby Phillies Bridge Farm CSA is yours during your stay. A trip to Phillies Bridge Farm comes with magnificent views of the Gunks. Their almost weekly schedule of projects, informal concerts and festivities provide ways to engage with and even work on the farm.
Both bedrooms in Red Gate Cottage boast brand new extra comfy beds and fresh cotton linens. The utility room is equipped with washer and dryer. Finally, you're all set for work or streaming movies with the super-high broadband wireless internet available throughout the house.
The charm and the mountainside location of Red Gate Cottage provides for a cozy retreat for couples, a small family or anyone passionate about nature. If you're lucky, you may even hear or see our long-taloned neighbor, the Great Horned Owl, when he's on the hunt.

About the owner: I am a recent Brooklyn native and have fallen in love with Mohonk mountain. Easy to do if you're a nature-lover. I look forward to all seasons for hiking, fishing, gardening and being part of the wonderful New Paltz community.
Why the Owner Chose New Paltz: My cottage offers a little taste of mountain living. A great place for your 'arrival of the wild country of the soul.' Deer, rabbits, fox, birds and our owl, share space with us. I've also fallen in love with the stone on the mountain and recommend a little pre-read on the geology and glacial activity that occurred on the mountain, the reason for the massive boulders in the fields and around the yard.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Red Gate Cottage is a labor of love. A constant garden. I'm just getting started with transforming it to a unique alpine home. Look for updates on our progress!
