Cozy Cottage in New Paltz
Cozy Cottage in New Paltz
This cozy cottage nestled into the side of a hill in the Mohonk Mountain area is a wonderfully appointed vacation home located only minutes away from bustling New Paltz. Our family enjoyed this terrific vacation rental and found it to be the perfect setting for exploring many Hudson River Valley destinations (West Point, Woodstock, Kingston, Rhinebeck and of course New Paltz). Equipped with a high-end kitchen, lovely furnishings, wi-fi, flat screen tv, a private deck, and very comfortable bedding, this spot is perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy a quiet country setting but have access within minutes to restaurants, shops, hiking trails, farmers' markets and so much more. The owner is very helpful and provided us with an extremely thorough guide to the house, local attractions, restaurants and anything else we'd like to know about the area. This was extremely helpful as we explored this part of NY. I can guarantee you will love this cottage. This New Paltz home is a gem of a vacation rental!

My wife and I stayed here recently to celebrate our anniversary / baby-moon. We had been looking at several B&B's in the area, but the prices were outrageous. This home on the other hand was affordable, and offered way more living space. The location is very convenient. Just minutes from Mohonk Mountain House and the little college town of New Paltz. We took advantage of this, and spent half a day at Mohonk, my wife got a massage and I hiked the grounds. It's beautiful in the fall, and I would highly recommend going. The town has cool stores, and coffee shops. Check out Water Street Market. We absolutely fell in love with the area, and the entire way home all we talked about was how great a weekend we had staying here. The house is really updated with modern touches, but still holds that country cottage design, and it's comfortable! The owner provided detailed instructions and information on area attractions. Very easy to communicate with. I have already recommended the home to family and friends. We are already thinking of making The Charming Country Cottage in New Paltz and annual destination. I would highly recommend this home for your next New Paltz vacation.

Owner response: So happy to hear you love the property and New Paltz. I used to rent in other areas in the mid-Hudson Valley but settled on New Paltz for the beautiful mountains and the huge volume of things to do. Hope to see you next year!
The house was perfect for the 4 of us on our "girls weekend". Large livingroom for us all to hang out and relax in. Kitchen had everything we needed. 2 big bedrooms upstairs and the bathrooms were great. Everything seemed recently updated and the house was spotless. Easy to get into New Paltz which is a great little town with lots of good restaurants and shopping. And my favorite - 2 bookstores!!! Loved the location as well - it was quiet but easy to get to and we took a nice long walk down to the end of the dead end street.

Fantastic TimeGuest comment entered by owner
We had a lovely time staying at this property and got to enjoy the local restaurants and took advantage of the good weather with a hike to the Duck Pond. This was my first time renting a house for a weekend and loved the privacy it offered over B&Bs. The location of the house makes it easy to pop into town or to one of the parks.

Had a very enjoyable stay at this house. I was initially worried about the house being near to a road, but it is a no thru road so the only people passing were neighbours who lived further along the road. The house is very comfortable with two spacious bedrooms. Only one bathroom, but it has a half bath downstairs. Very clean and well maintained house. The owner sent us an information pack prior to our visit which helped us plan our weekend in advance. Would definitely book again.

Owner response: Thank you for your review. So glad you liked the info pack, we had a lot of fun putting that together.
We had a wonderful getaway at this well-appointed property in the Gunks! The owner has made this a very pleasant place with every amenity one could need during one's stay. The pictures are true to the property - is it clean, spacious and well-maintatined. And the location could not be better. Everything is a short drive, bike or hike away. We could not have asked for a better place and we will definitely be back to stay!

Owner response: Thank you for your review. Since last year we have added a deck and this spring intend to add plantings around the deck. Hopefully we will see you in 2012.
Great house, perfect location

We wanted to take our three kids up the Hudson to hike and enjoy the Fall foliage. We couldn't have picked a more perfect location! The pretty house was clean and in pristine condition. Two large bedrooms and a very spacious living area were more than enough room for the 5 of us. A fully functioning and modern kitchen with a comfortable dining area were a huge bonus and the charming side porch was perfect for our morning meals. But the best thing about this house is it's location! Under 5 minutes from New Paltz where you can find quaint shops and good dining (definitely go to the Village Tea Room -- great food and staff was very accomodating and kid friendly). Also, just down the mountain road from excellent hiking trails at the Mohunk Preserve. We will definitely be staying here again.
