Property description

Step into the comfort and tranquility of our Japanese-inspired guesthouse. Set in the woods of the Shawangunk Ridge just 90 miles north of Manhattan, Treehouse of the August Moon is the perfect weekend getaway for two, especially if you’re a pianist.

We’re off a dead-end, gravel road, down a thousand-foot driveway, with access to the Rondout Creek, Mohonk Preserve, and the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail. A short ramble through our property leads to a private swimming hole on the Rondout. Fishing for small mouth bass and bluegills is excellent.

Treehouse is perched over a 19th century stone foundation in the middle of 20 wooded acres, surrounded by a deck and small patio. Dappled light floods in through floor-to-ceiling glass doors, with custom-made, sliding shoji screens. Wake to the sounds of birdsong in the trees and the river 40 yards down the hill. Wild turkey, white tailed deer, red fox, bald eagles and red tailed hawks are common sights.

Quality furnishings include many vintage and designer pieces. Soothing colors, original artwork, comfortable seating and bedding, and good lighting add to the overall harmony. An eclectic reading library and CD collection are provided. There is a small, separate kitchenette with basic amenities. The bath has a standard tub/shower.

In the main room, there is a beautiful, 5’8” Mason and Hamlin grand piano, with a large collection of sheet music. It is well-maintained by a respected local piano restorer and tuner who works with the Bard, Vassar, and PianoSummer at SUNY New Paltz music departments.

The quaint village of Rosendale is only one mile away and boasts several casual restaurants and cafes, two renowned live entertainment venues, a first rate bakery, independent movie theatre, artists’ galleries and antique shops, a bike shop for rentals, and a Trailways bus station with express service to Manhattan. More restaurants, galleries, shops and entertainment are a 10-minute drive away in historic High Falls and picturesque Stone Ridge. The bustling college town of New Paltz is fifteen minutes by car, or a half hour’s bike ride or hour’s walk on the Rail Trail. Kingston and Woodstock are about a half hour’s drive.
