Ten Minutes from Mohonk House

  • 5 of 5

Want to go to Mohonk House but don't want to pay an arm and a leg? Then book a couple of days at this High Falls 1840s Carriage House. This clean, open floor plan home is just ten minutes from Mohonk's gate house. We made a reservation at Mohonk House for breakfast, ate a delicious meal and had access to Mohonk's hiking trails and other amenities for the rest of the day- even afternoon tea and cookies. Sterrett was responsive before, during, and our after our stay.

Airy and Bright

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is private, airy, bright and open. Perfect for writers and artists looking for tranquility! I appreciated the soaking tub and washer/dryer! There is another, larger, house on the property, but it was still very quiet except when the other guests insisted on driving up and down the drive next to the Carriage House out of line with the rental policy; I'm sure any other guests would abide by the policy to use the other house drive and leave the Carriage House drive quiet! Sterrett was friendly, promptly responsive with one unexpected issue that arose during my stay. I highly recommended!

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about it. The house is larger than the pictures make it appear, and decorated very nicely. Another nice surprise was how comfortable the bed was. We spent mornings and evenings on the porch, a great place to listen to silence, occasionally broken by birds. It was a great location, pretty much everything we wanted to do was within 15 minutes of the house.

Overall it was a great stay!

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!
