Kerhonkson house description

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. Just bring your clothes and you’ll be all set!
The house is privately sited at the end of a country road situated right on the mountainside. 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. Continue your journey down the mountainside by going down another few steps and follow the downward sloping path to the fire pit area where you can have your campfire. From there, descend the graceful slope to the pond area or hike right into the wooded area on the property. At the base of the slope you’ll find the pond area located just below the house.
The choice is yours whether you want to just enjoy the outdoors relaxing on the rocking chair porch, barbeque and dine in the outdoor pergola area, stroll around the pond or hike into the woods on this beautiful 4 acre property. For the more adventurous, hike right into Minnewaska State Park and enjoy one of the many great outdoor activities that are available there to you.
In the evening retire to the house, cozy up by the warmth of a fire and watch a great movie or just channel surf. For dinner, barbeque and dine under the stars or visit one of the many charming country eateries in the area for everything from a simple country meal to an elegant dining experience. The Hudson Valley offers a variety of dining experiences and activities. There are also plenty of antique shops to visit, country fairs and festivals to enjoy and farmers’ markets where you can shop for your dinner.... locally grown. Check the listings of the many events going on and all the shops and places to visit in the area at Visit Vortex, a great visitors’ guide to the Hudson Valley. You’ll find Visit Vortex at http://www.visitvortex.com .
The house includes Wifi, a basic package of Time-Warner cable channels, a DVD player accompanied by a library of the very latest movies and some classic movies too, a washer/dryer combo, 2 bicycles are provided for your use and plenty of wood pellets for the pellet stove too.
The house is in the town of Kerhonkson very centrally located in the Hudson Valley to nearby High Falls, Stone Ridge, Ellenville, New Paltz and Rosendale and only about 30 to 40 minutes from Woodstock and Saugerties.
The house is available for long weekends or the full week. Monthly and seasonal rentals are also available. Please email me directly at aframeinthepark@gmail.com to discuss rental arrangement.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  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.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The truly unique aspect of this house is it's proximity to glorious Minnewaska State Park and the Mohonk Nature Preserve. Given the uniques location of the house, all the spectacular parkland can be easily enjoyed in its unspoiled beauty, with breath-taking vistas at every turn and truly something for everyone no matter what your preferred activity level.
