Gorgeous house, Beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House had everything we needed and was beautifully decorated. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the views, relaxing on the porch reading or drinking coffee or wine. The host provided lots of information about restaurants, farmers markets, grocery stores and things to do in the area. We took a day trip to Hyde Park to the FDR home and library and the Culinary Institute of America which were interesting and delicious respectively. We wished we had more time to do area hikes and antiquing. It was a lovely section of the country to visit. We would happily return to the Carriage House for another vacation.

peaceful Hudson Valley getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sterrett Smith was absolutely one of the best homeowners I've dealt with: her home was clean and inviting, warmed by eclectic accessories. The rooms are spacious, bed comfortable, and kitchen stocked with all the appliances one might need. The healthfood coop nearby has a good selection of food, along with numerous excellent restaurants in the area. The only helpful advice I might give is to bring your own teabags or decaf or flavored coffee as there was only one brand / type available. I would definitely like to return :)

Relaxing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stood at the Carriage House and had an amazing time! This is not my first time renting a property off homeaway. The best thing about this rental is that it's just as seen in the pictures and/or even better. It is such a cozy place! We didn't really use the kitchen but it is well equipped. The property is centrally located; we went hiking, visited some of the wineries and event went into New Paltz. Very short drive to everything. My favorite part was enjoying Jeannette's delicious meal! This is a must do while staying in any of Sterrett's properties. I also must say Sterrett has a special eye for decor! Everything looks so perfect in her home! She responded quickly to all of my emails! We hope to visit again soon. I gave the house 5 stars!

Simply Great!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully decorated - elegant yet rustic. It is centrally located and near all restaurants, wine stores, grocery stores, historic places to visit. Kitchen is fully stocked with pots/pan/utensils. Lots of running space for the dogs. The entire house is SUPER clean and very comfy/cozy. Someone even shoveled the driveway after it snowed one of the days we were there. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a romantic, relaxing place to stay.

The carriage house was spacious/beautiful many amenities and a great setting close to activities.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying three nights in the carriage house. It was spacious, beautiful and comfortable with amenities, including a gas-powered "wood" stove, in close proximity to many places of interest and activities including the Mohonk Preserve and New Paltz. Quiet is also a good descriptor of this location and especially important to us and our active little dog Tica. It was extremely clean, furnished well with antiques, with a nicely equipped kitchen and a spacious bathroom providing excellent hot water on demand. Although there are other houses on this property they are spaced well apart with a large open field with scattered woods adjacent to the long driveway which was excellent for bird watching. The owner was attentive and helpful with arrangements and directions for getting there, using appliances and for general house procedures. A lot of information was provided in the form of brochures and maps on local destinations and events. We thought the pricing was excellent and we would highly recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to this beautiful and rural location.
