Fifty Acres of woods and meadows
About Bruce Stalnaker
We both have crazy busy jobs in NYC and really needed a place to get away. We found this old farm house last year and have been fixing it up since then.
Bruce Stalnaker purchased this Farmhouse in 2016
Why Bruce Stalnaker chose Saugerties
Having Fifty acres really blows our mind. The land is full of old trails and woods roads to wonder. A year round stream winds it's way down off the mtn side.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Hike to the top of the mtn and drink in that view!

Property manager made things so easy!
House had everything we needed and was close to HITS.
Property manager Bruce made booking, checkin, our stay and leaving effortless. Truly a great experience!
Was such a treat having you folks two weekends in a row. Hope you did great at the HITS arena! Please do come see us again. Respectfully, B
Very clean and comfortable
Everything was great. We would stay again!
We'd love to have you back!! Respectfully, Bruce Rental Manager
Overall we really enjoyed our stay. The check in was easy, the kitchen has high end appliances and everything you need to cook. Saugerties downtown is close by and has a lot of nice restaurants and cute shops. The property manager is really responsive and accommodating. Even though there is only one bathroom, it's a spacious one. The shower was great. The bed in the second bedroom isn't very comfortable unfortunately. Also, the neighboring farm dogs barked a lot. Well into the evening (until midnight one night) and very early in the morning (at 430am one morning) which was pretty disruptive - an FYI for light sleepers.
I'm really sorry to hear about both of these issues. I'm one of those light sleepers. I'll speak to the farmer next door about the barking. He does have two outside dogs that guard the live stock there. First I've heard about the bed. Bummed. I'll try it out next trip there and see if it needs replaced. We'd love to have you back there!

Cozy, clean, private getaway
My husband, two little dogs and I came from NYC to get away from the hustle and bustle and spend Thanksgiving in the country. This house and setup was perfect. It has a big beautiful kitchen that is stocked and a pleasure to cook in. The bedrooms were comfy and cozy with great bedding and we’re decorated really nicely. There is a “TV room” with Netflix built in - and this room has a futon and was fun to veg out in with blankets and pillows,which they provide a ton of. It was freezing while we were there so we didn’t do much but hang in the house, less taking the dogs out and a few short walks, which was just fine bc the house was so comfortable. We’d like to come back when it’s warmer to do some hiking. There seemed to be some trails behind the house up the mountain that we’re intriguing, but too wet from the recent snow to really enjoy this time. There is a little family farm down the hill from the house you see out the windows of the living room and bedrooms, and they have a couple cows, a chicken house as well as two sweet dogs who watch over the animals.. I loved this feature.
A great little vaca in the Catskills. Already looking forward to another visit!
It was brutally cold while you were here. We look forward to many return trips! There are some nice trails to walk right out back. The TV is wireless and you can move it to the living room. Thanks for being so easy on the house. Respectfully, Bruce Rental Manager
Great house. Was perfect for what we needed. Would give it 5 stars but the neighbors dog did bark often.
We loved having you folks there. Sorry about the neighbors dog. Please do come see us again! Respectfully, Bruce Rental Manager
Great experience, great property!
We had such a great experience with Bruce and his awesome getaway house. He was so accommodating, checked on us multiple times through email correspondence and the House was packed with goodies and everything we needed. The estate itself was perfect. Great access to a pond, tons of land and awesome views of the mountains. Was a great spot to just chill out and relax outside of the craziness of New York City. Would return in a second!! :-)
This is a great place with privacy and room to roam. We loved having you here and hope you'll return someday soon. Thanks for your kind words! Respectfully, Bruce Rental Manager
Exit 20 on the NYS Thruway makes it easy to get here. Once you get off the big road you head out into the farm land and in minutes you're at this great escape. This farm house sits up on the knoll, over looking a neighboring farm. Kingston is just to the south and Woodstock to the west. Your only neighbors are the farm animals next door.
