About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Our home is a recently renovated 3 bed room log home located on 3 acres attached to our organic farm and our home .Property has 5 mile Rail Trail access out the back door. We have a camp fire pit and a reflection pond. We also have a wildflower garden in season. There are several state parks and preserves in the area great for hiking, biking and world class rock climbing. There are several ski mountains about an hours drive.There was an old stone home on this property and was an apple orchard circa late 1600s. My wife and I have returned 30 fruit trees to the property. Hence the name, there will not be fruit until the trees mature. We have included the cleaning fee and occupancy tax in the rate.

Veronica and I love gardening and the out doors. I'm a long time rock and Ice climber in the area . Veronica is a photographer and spends her time off taking photographs throughout all seasons.The parks in this area are beautiful and is what attracted us to build our home here.

Wonderful way to get out of the city!

  • 5 of 5

Veronica and Dan were wonderful hosts! They made sure everything was ready for us and had a really helpful binder full of things to do in the area! The outdoor area is beautiful and the grill was a blast. I would love to come back and stay again!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Ed and Veronica were just wonderful and told us about many local spots to visit.

The house was clean and had a well stocked kitchen and a lovely deck where we could watch the hummingbirds come to our feeder. There was even a small herb garden for us to use and they even gave us fresh eggs from their chickens. :)

Super nice!

Perfect (Wedding) Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented the Orchard House for a wedding in Wallkill. Ed & Veronica were the perfect hosts - Highly communicative, flexible (we were a tad late arriving) and incredibly welcoming. They had great recommendations for local attractions and the house had all the amenities you could want and need. Both the house and property were beautiful, and I'd absolutely book the Orchard House for another upstate trip!

A class log cabin. Absolutely everything was immaculate.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the orchard house to be close to a wedding venue in Stone Ridge. Ed met us when we arrived. He explained everything about this house. When we went inside I was amazed at how nice it really was. Everything was provided including a dozen eggs from his hens. My wife’s favorite. It was a great four nights. The kitchen was well appointed and furnished. There is even a walking trail access at the back of the property. Go either left or right on the trail. It doesn’t matter. Both directions were beautiful. So in summary—if I were ever in this neck of the woods again, I’d absolutely stay again. Thanks Ed and Veronica for your great hospitality.
