Property description

Cragsmoor, a tiny mountain-top hamlet on the Shawangunk Ridge 1800 feet up in the the Shawangugk Mountains is a magical place. Now listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the hamlet is an oasis of calm and natural wonder less than two hours from New York City.

Many of the buildings in the district date to Cragsmoor’s founding as an art colony in the late 19th century, when Hudson River School Painters.


Our pristine home, The Crows Nest, is one of these original stone and cedar homes, restored with care not to lose the original “Cragsmoor feel”. The centerpieces of the house are the massive stone fireplace, the Orchard porch and stone patio which wrap around the house and the fully renovated kitchen with sliding glass doors which open to the apple trees outside. The Bear Hill cliffs and nature preserve are a 5 minute walk from the house.

Our 2300 square foot home sleeps 6. There is a master queen bedroom with views, a full guest room with views of the orchard and 2 twin beds in a room with views . The great room upstairs also has a pull out couch. One bathroom has a shower. Another bathroom is conveniently located downstairs off the kitchen.

The fireplace comes with a full supply of seasoned hardwood. The kitchen features Vermont slate floors, a Thermador double oven and cook top, a Rancillo espresso machine, a large kitchen table, dishwasher and full complement of All Clad cookware.

Breakfast lunch or dinner on the porch is hard to beat. Overlooking our tiered orchard of apple and cherry trees, it is the perfect place to swing on the hammock or enjoy pancakes full of blueberries picked on the Ridge the day before.

For music lovers we have a Baltimore Knabe grand piano situated by a picture window with a view of the meadow below. The large Tree Room upstairs has cathedral ceilings, a foosball table and windows on all sides that literally put you “in the woods” when you relax there.

Cragsmoor is a place of special natural beauty. It is home to pristine and protected hiking and cross-country ski trails, the premier hang-gliding launch on the East Coast, streams with waterfalls and quiet paths through apple orchards.

Cragsmoor is a 2-hour drive from New York City, and 45 minutes from New Paltz.

About: We have raised our family at this house on weekends year-round. We drive up from NYC on the weekends to relax with family and friends. Our children spent most of their weekends here growing up and enjoying the outdoors with other families. We have many many memories of times in Cragsmoor and look forward to many more.

Why Cragsmoor:
Create memories with family and friends. We wanted a place to relax that was close to NYC and had a small community feel. Cragsmoor is a tiny hamlet of artists, musicians, nature lovers and outdoors types that provides a sense of community. Our house is a renovated original historic Dellenbaugh house. Beautiful wood floors and views from every room.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
We have entertained many guests here over the years who have come to love our house and look forward to returning year after year. You can walk to the Bear Hill cliff area in 5 minutes. You can get on a bike or a pair of skis and leave the property for the day returning to cook a big meal and relax on the porch, by the fireplace. The kitchen is great for cooking and the piano provides a nice touch for people who play.
