Come relax and unwind in this classic 1970's Hudson Valley A-Frame located practically inside of Minnewaska State Park. The house is on the mountainside and is very privately situated at the end of a quiet country road. Hike right off the property into the park or just wander on the 4 wooded acres and pond area right on the property. The beautiful Mohonk Nature Preserve and the stunning sky top lakes, Lake Mohonk, Lake Minnewaska and Lake Awosting are a very short drive (or a long hike) away. There is also mountain climbing, cross country skiing, mountain biking, hunting (in-season only and license required!) and swimming. There are some great nearby swimming holes where you can cool off in refreshing mountain waters. The views throughout the area are extraordinary! It's perfect for everything from a scenic drive to an adrenalin pumping day of outdoor fun. This lovely classic A-Frame has been thoroughly and lovely restored with a country-modern flair and features 3 bedroom and 1 and a half bathrooms. The fully equipped kitchen has all you'll need and the dining room overlooks the pond. The Loft bedroom, currently used as the Master Suite, has a queen-sized bed and en suite 1/2 bathroom. The loft area also contains a home office area with a printer set-up and overlooks the living and dining room area. Downstairs, there is a beautifully appointed double bedroom with a full-sized bed and another single bedroom that’s perfect as a child’s room. The house comfortably sleeps 5. The main living area of the A-Fame has a soaring peaked ceiling giving it a great country-loft feeling with the living room kitchen and dining room sharing this generous space. The house is decorated with modern designer furnishings as well as country antiques and artwork throughout. The house comes fully supplied with linens and towels.

You can hike up the mountainside to Old Minnewaska Trail which leads right into the State Park. The property itself spans 4 acres. You can take a nice little hike on the property itself too. Start outside the house and stroll across the lawn and gravel parking area, then go down a few steps and you’ll come to the stone patio and pergola area where you’ll find an outdoor dining area and gas barbeque.

About the owner: My partner and I are 2 New York City professionals whose busy lives are made so much more manageable by escaping to the beauty of the Hudson Valley. We have enjoyed exploring the mountains and sharing the house with friends and family over the years. We look forward to sharing it with you and your family!
Why the Owner Chose Kerhonkson: Our A-frame in the Park is so special to us because it has truly been a labor of love. We have taken this quaint and charming 1970's A-frame and transformed it into our own version of country-modern A-frame living.
