About the Property

1 bedroom, 1 full bath, sleeps two

Ninety miles from the George Washington Bridge and NYC, and on a hill above the Rondout Creek in High Falls, is a one bedroom, 850 square foot apartment complete except for a kitchen, that overlooks the Mohonk Preserve and Mountain House on the Shawangunk Ridge. Although attached by a 20 foot hallway to the main house which is the owner's residence, this rental is otherwise completely private, with two entrances. There is no kitchen, but an an under-the-counter refrigerator and microwave are available for guests and the cupboard is simply stocked with a few utensils, and there is an electric coffee pot and tea kettle. Although the owners live on site, this rental space is totally reserved for guests of the West Wing only. The outdoor areas have beautiful views of the ridge, a walking path to a secluded spot on the creek, and 3 acres under cultivation for flowers, fruits, berries, vegetables and medicinal and culinary herbs. The property is located just a couple of miles from several trailheads into the Mohonk Preserve and is close to the famous Trapps rock climbing area and Minnewaska State Park. High Falls and Stone Ridge are just 4 miles from the door where you will find all the necessities including farmers' markets, the High Falls Food Co-op, a number of restaurants, a pharmacy, a liquor store with a great selection, a full grocery store, antiques, gifts, and gas stations. Everything you need for a great country experience!

Guests enter the West Wing through the double Eastlake stained glass doors into the private hallway lined with glass windows. This opens into an expansive room with 22 foot ceilings, a large Moroccan lantern over a huge Iranian carpet on polished concrete floors with radiant heat. One wall is lined with bookcases, another with a sideboard stocked with a teakettle, coffee machine, and an under-the-counter refrigerator. A flat screen TV is available along with HBO, network channels, Netflix and ITunes movie rental. A spiral staircase leads up to an open loft with a 14 foot long and 48' wide built in window seat/bed. Seating in the living area accommodates three in an upholstered club chair from the 1940's, a leather library chairs and more seating or lounging on the teak daybed. A ceiling fan and AC keep the West Wing comfortable in summer. The red bedroom is decked out with an antique queen-size bed, Moroccan curtains and an en suite bathroom with separate shower and bath tub. Parking is available outside the front entrance. The lawns, garden and small farm areas circle the house on all sides.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am a painter and my husband is a writer and runs a graduate program in NYC. We needed space to work and found this beautiful hilltop with creek access. We put up 2 barns from the early 1800s and started establishing gardens and an edible landscape. I also have two rentals just across the creek, VRBO #379093 and #381193. I love to build, save old structures and keep my hands dirty and busy when not in the studio. High Falls is a great location for an easy commute into the metropolitan area while being worlds away in a true Hudson Valley paradise.

Why the Owner Chose High Falls, NY, USA:
This property is located in a geologically unique area adjacent to 25,000 acres of protected land that is home to the Mohonk Preserve, Mohonk Mountain House, Minnewaska State Park and many reservoirs within the watershed of NYC. The villages are historic, the food is fresh, and the countryside infectious. And it's an easy drive to so many great locations along the Hudson River, not to mention into NYC.
