About ray schilke
I design sound for the theatre. I also own and operate a sound company called Ins & Outs and we do a lot of theatre and musical events in NYC. Locally our work is more charitable within the non-profit sector. I've lived in New Paltz for 20 years and I drive a lot.
ray schilke purchased this Farmhouse in 2000
Why ray schilke chose New Paltz
The farmhouse was built in 1911 and has a lot of character. We recently renovated it and included some really nice details . The back deck overlooks the pond and there are seasonal views of the Shawangunk Mountains. There are trails that wind through the woods and there is a wonderful bird, reptile and wildlife population.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
If you've never had an egg that was laid just hours before you cooked it, you're in for a real treat. The girls here are free-range and enjoy a pretty nice diet of natural grains and fruits and vegetables. They're quite healthy and friendly and fun to watch ! And if you have a garden at home, we would be glad to give you a bag of their poop for fertilizer, perfect for growing herbs !

A true hassle free, relaxing stay!
We truly enjoyed our visit at Ray's chicken farm. We just wanted a place to hang out, read and relax and that is exactly what we got. The property was well equipped for this type of activity in that we were able to lounge around on the porch, by and around the pond. Ray was a wonderful and accommodating host and easily accessible whenever we needed him. We were car free and used the local taxies around town and to the downtown area. These were very reliable and affordable. I would go back again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend this lovely place!
cool place to mellow out
Awesome place to go to chill from the big city
and absorb the 44 acres of beauty!
The old farmhouse was very clean, and so quaint. Plenty of room, and the back porch was perfect to relax, complete with a grill. Very close to everything! Ray was there for anything you needed, farm fresh eggs hatched everyday by his hens, it was so relaxing to sit and look into the woods, I didn't even turn the TV on the whole weekend!!!! 5 star get-a-way, will be coming back:)
Come back in the fall :)
It's really great.
Great New Paltz rental
Bright, comfortable, clean house in a very convenient location - we definitely hope to stay here again!
The farm house was perfect for our family's weekend getaway and Ray was a great host. It's a short drive to the town of New Paltz and other nearby areas. Clean, spacious and inviting, we hope to stay here again soon. Our 2 year old daughter has begun lovingly describing it as the "chicken house."
It is a rather homey farm house with convenient location and quite romantic surroundings
We loved our stay. The house has everything we needed. The only discomfort I experienced was a futon bed.
Fun girls weekend!
We had a great time at the house for our annual girls weekend. The house had all the amenities that we needed to have a pleasant stay. We enjoyed the farm fresh eggs in the morning. Only had small middle of the night mishap with the smoke detector.
