3 bdrm, 2 bath historic farmhouse w/ classic front porch,swimming pool 3 acres
Why Owner chose New Paltz
The owners had long been drawn to the beauty of the Hudson Valley with its lush landscapes, apple orchards and working farms. Once they saw the historical beams and planks in this 130 year old farmhouse, they knew this would be the perfect peaceful home on which to place their personal design stamp while honoring the home's farming history. Those elements combined with the area's friendly and warm people have made this the perfect Hudson Valley getaway!
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Country living with easy access to NYC. The best of both worlds!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We had a wonderful stay at this property--it's a beautiful setting, conveniently located and very relaxing (with a marvelous pool!)
A charming country retreat!
Haywood Farmhouse is the perfect setting for a long weekend in the Hudson Valley! While it is in a quiet and peaceful location, this charming house was convenient to restaurants and attractions of the area.
Beautifully renovated and restored with lovely gardens, this house is ready for the likes of the glossy magazines. However, this home evokes a warm
and easy going style. We loved the manner in which antique elements were used in unique and creative ways, particularly the use of unusual old doors.
Haywood House was comfortable throughout - sun porch during the day, cosy living room, with a snug gas fireplace, in the evening! We look forward to return trips to Haywood Farmhouse!
Janet, so glad you and your family had a lovely fall weekend and that you enjoyed the farmhouse! We look forward to welcoming you back!
Great stay at a beautiful house
We had the best weekend here! The house was clean and decorated so beautifully. It had everything you could need.
We had coffee every morning on the porch and hung out every afternoon in the sprawling yard.
We will be back.
Great vacation and host!
This place is beautiful! We had so much fun exploring the area and playing by the pool and in the lovely gardens. Sean is great host-- giving us all sorts of day trip tips and making sure everything was set for our arrival. Don't miss going to Brooklyn Cider house for weekend wood fire pizza in an amazing setting. What a fantastic house and setting!
So glad you and your family had a great time and thank you for being such great guests! The farmhouse has many great orchards and farmstands nearby. Glad you were able to get out and enjoy some. It's one of our favorite things to do in the area. Please come back for a return visit soon!
A beautiful property. Well appointed. Great communication. The owner was flexible, thoughtful and easy to work with. We had two families with kids sharing the house for a few days over the July 4th weekend. We spent most of the days splashing around in their beautiful in-ground pool, which was a must for our group due to the heat and the kiddos love of swimming. It was great that we could put the kids to bed upstairs and then have the adults hang out downstairs laughing and making noise without disturbing their sleep. The Master bedroom is really lovely. I slept like a rock. If you care about design and details, then you will appreciate this property. This rental delivered exactly what we were looking for: comfort, privacy, charm and a "good hang." We barely left the house so I'm not sure about the surrounding area. I will probably rent this place again in the future. Thanks a million.
Greg, we were so happy to welcome you and your family and friends and delighted you enjoyed your stay at the farmhouse! We think it's a special place too! Hope you can come back and visit us again. (There's so many wonderful sights to visit in the Hudson Valley within a 30 minute radius of the farmhouse!)
Fab Country Home, Fab Vacation!
The Haywood Farmhouse is a meticulously renovated and decorated older country home located in a bucolic setting close to NYC in the Hudson Valley. The restoration undertaken here is an obvious labor of love, and the owners have quite successfully maintained the intimate and authentic feel of the original century plus old house while adding up to date modern amenities such as the new master bath and bedroom expansion. The decoration also pays homage to the period feel of the house, with great attention to detail paid to the furnishings which are a mix of modern and antique and are exceptionally complimentary to the overall ambience. All of this adds up to a supremely inviting and aesthetically pleasing home which is perfect for relaxing and decompressing from the stresses of city life. Equally engaging are the beautifully landscaped grounds and pool which allow for an easy connection to nature as well as the option for recreational play and exercise. My family and I spent nine days and nights here and had an absolutely terrific time, venturing out occasionally to the farm stands and scenic drives near by, but mostly lying low and relaxing in the sun room and the deck or swimming in the solar heated pool (which, by the way, saved us hundreds of dollars in the heating fuel costs we've incurred at pools without solar heating in other houses we've rented). In addition, the owner was extremely communicative and responsive to our questions and concerns, and added welcoming touches such as fresh flowers and bottled water next to the beds.
If you are choosing to rent a classic country home for your Hudson Valley getaway, the Haywood Farmhouse should be at the top of your list. I can give it my highest recommendation!
Rereading your review from last year 2016! Thanks so much and so glad you were able to join us again for summer 2017!
With our beautiful swimming pool and our central location in the Hudson Valley, there's more than enough to do for a week's vacation! Haywood Farmhouse offers you one of the best locations in the Hudson Valley just off the 87 Thruway. New Paltz is just 7 minutes away where you will find restaurants, grocery stores and services in a cute bohemian village setting that serves as a gateway to apple orchards and farmers markets.
The nearby villages of Rosendale, High Falls and Stoneridge are definitely worth a visit for their charms, restaurants and shops. You will love the drive dotted with stone houses.
For nature lovers, the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail offers more than 12 miles of linear park connecting Gardiner and Rosendale and the to the Walkway Over the Hudson, the world's tallest and longest pedestrian walkway, connecting the Hudson Valley Rail Trail on the west side of the Hudson to the Dutchess County Rail Trail on the east side.
The beautiful Shawangunk Ridge offers a host of trail options for hikers and bicyclists with some of the best views in the Hudson Valley. Bonticou Crag in the Mohonk Preserve, Skytop on the grounds of the world-renowned, 140-year-old Mohonk Mountain House resort, Awosting Falls in the Minnewaska State Park Preserve and the Ice Caves in Sam’s Point Preserve are just a taste of what the Shawangunk Ridge has to offer. For rock climbers, ‘The Gunks’ are the single busiest climbing destination in North America.
New Paltz and the surrounding region is a terrific jumping off point for the Catskills as well! In winter, ski enthusiasts can explore Hunter Mountain, Belleayre Mountain and Windham.
And just over the Hudson River north of Poughkeepsie you can visit Franklin D. Roosevelt's Springwood estate and Presidential Library, Eleanor Roosevelt's Val-kill Cottage and the Vanderbilt mansion, all in Hyde Park. Just further north of Hyde Park is the elegant village of Rhinebeck. And just south of Hyde Park is Samuel Morses's beautiful Locust Grove estate in Poughkeepsie.
