We moved from the city to this gorgeous part of NY just a year ago and have been lovingly upgrading and decorating our home. We fell for the cool details, wide wood plank floors, mid-century lines and ambling layout of the house. The wooded grounds consist of rolling dells and soft lawns. Several noble old growth oak and elm tower over the cedar and hickory trees. We are a professional clown and a playwright and the detached artist workshop is a boon for private contemplation or work for us as a couple. The green sprawl is a child's natural wonderland and our daughter loves the purple treehouse (open to all!).
Kaethe purchased this House in 2016
Why Kaethe chose New Paltz
It offers space and privacy but is centrally located. It has a bountiful organic garden of its own and is minutes from any other libation or food source you might want. Excellent star gazing. The house has a truly beautiful lay out and flow.

Exquisite New Paltz Stay
Kaethe’s house was exquisite. It has a great cottage feel and is surrounded by beautiful trees and a spacious garden with a tree house. The house was clean, beautifully decorated, and comfortable. It has everything you need, including toys for kids! It was perfect for us (two couples with two kids each). There is a great wooden stove in the living room, which kept us happy and warm from this year’s bitter cold December weather. It was great place to relax and snuggle up. We also enjoyed New Paltz which is friendly small town with lots of restaurants and fun shops.
Thanks, Francisca. So happy you found the mini sled hill out front and were able to enjoyably share both New Years and a special birthday during your stay. It's always a pleasure to have guests who enjoy themselves, appreciate what's here, and leave feeling satisfied. Happy New Year!
Great house in New Paltz NY
This is a very comfortable, warm and interesting home and a great place to stay when visiting the New Paltz area. We had a family group of 6 adults and 2 children and everyone enjoyed the weekend here. We found everything we needed including a wood stove (with wood and kindling) and a grill (with charcoal). Nice kitchen with all utensils. 10 min from town and a few minutes to a 25 mi hiking trail. Owner was easy to communicate with. Only note is no TV (at least we didn't find one) if that matters to you. But there are plenty of books and good wifi. Would definitely rent again.
Beautiful Home in Beautiful Surroundings
Kaethe, the owner, couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Her family's beautiful home in the woods outside of New Paltz, NY, was just what we needed to settle in for a family visit and to enjoy the fall colors and amenities in and around New Paltz. The home was very comfortable and we even enjoyed the fire in the fireplace stove insert on a cool night. Good place to get away from everyday stress and "hang out" with family and friends. Side trips to wineries, a distillery, good restaurants, and a nearby outdoor art park (Storm King Art Center) added to the pleasure of our stay. Commuter rail out of NYC has nearby stop in Poughkeepsie which is an interesting place in its own right. I recommend Kaethe and her home.
Thank you for your kind words! It gives me great pleasure when our love for our home and town translates Into a good time had by others. We're so happy it suited you all and that you were able to relax and enjoy. And thanks for leaving the place so tidy and as you found it! Best, Kaethe
Lovely house with a great yard.
Comfortable, relaxed, very pleasant home. Kaethe was extremely helpful; thoughtful and responsive. No problems at all.
lovely stay! Amazing house and host
The house was nice and cozy, very clean. The host was informative and provided us lots of information on where to go/eat etc. They have a cute little vegetable garden, the owners were so generous and told us we can pick some veggies from the garden, they were so fresh! It was a great experience for us "city folks" since we never get to pick/grow our own veggies. We had fresh, hand picked salad every morning! We hiked at the Peter's kill state park (About a 20 min drive away) and it was a nice hike (~3 hrs). There's also bike rental in the town and cute shops/restaurants near there. Overall, it was a great experience! We loved the town and the house.
We were so happy to host this group in our home! From the first correspondence Nora Lin was thoughtfully reassuring that her large group would respect our property. She asked excellent questions which helped us include additional details in our listing. But above all the group left our place clean, fresh and as as they found it. They were excellent guests and we would welcome them back in a heartbeat!
