Cragsmoor house description

Fall is the most beautiful time of year here.

Connect with friends and family while sipping coffee on the porch and watching for deer, wild turkeys or humming birds. Share some of the fruits of our garden and cook in the fully equipped kitchen or grill on the porch after hiking, touring or just hanging out in hammock. Play air hockey in the attic or games or do a puzzle. Later, warm up by the wood stove, with a glass of wine or a book, get the chill out in the hot tub or roast s'mores in the fire pit in the garden and see more stars than you ever have. There are so many choices. . .

Historic Dutch colonial home located 2 doors from the Stone Church situated on 2+ acres of lawn with native species gardens, a firepit and a hot tub that seats 6. Near wine trails, hiking trails and Sam's Point Preserve. 45 minutes to New Paltz, 10 minutes to Ellenville or Pine Bush for shopping or dining.

Ideal for relaxation, family time and visits with good friends.

Beautiful fall foliage with many hiking choices at your doorstep -- later you can retire . . .by the fire or warm up in the hot tub.
