About Daniel Trimbach

I am a designer and live in New York City. I am also a very active triathlete and travel to races most weekends during the summer.

Daniel Trimbach purchased this house in 2008

Why Daniel Trimbach chose Hudson Valley

The area is full of outdoor adventures, hiking trails, secret swimming falls, farmers markets, and antique shops. I love it because the locals are very friendly and helpful. Also the road and mountain biking opportunities are endless.

If you feel like being pampered, the house is 20 minutes from the famous Mohonk Mountain House. They have a brand new world class spa and indoor pool.

What makes this house unique

When I first saw this house, I recognized it right away. It looks like it is floating in air. During the summer, the breezes gently pass through and mother nature is always putting on a show. During the non winter months, the roof deck at night offers an unobstructed view of the stars. It is at the end of a private road and abuts a New York State land preserve.

A very special home !

  • 5 of 5

We are just departing Dan's wonderful home after staying here for a week.

What can we say ! We think we could run out of superlatives.

Everything here in this most extraordinary home is just as Dan has described it on the website.

It is hidden in a private forest , down a small track and you are surrounded by nature and wildlife. Whilst here, we have seen deer, owls, rabbits, chipmunks and of course numerous birds. There is no background noise at all as the nearest house is a long way away.

The house is warm and clean and comfortable and every almost room has a large floor to ceiling window that you can look out of and admire the view.

Also, the village of Kerhonkson is an ideal spot in which to tour Ulster County. In our week here we have visited Hyde Park, Val-Kil, West Point and the Vanderbilt Mansion.

We have dined out well too. There are fancy restaurants nearby and some simpler places and all have served good food.

Finally , may we just add a few words about Dan the owner. Being from England, we had to ask Dan many things, before we arrived and also whilst we were here. He answered our queries with patience and kindness and he was a joy to deal with.

We are writing this review on our final morning here and have much sadness that we are departing. We will miss this special place but we do intend to return in the future.

Wonderful place in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Great house -- private, quiet, architecturally interesting, lots of beautiful state parks nearby. The owner is very helpful and responsive. I've stayed here before and it's been wonderful each time.

We're repeat visitors, so that tells you what we think of this wonderful place! There's local antiquing, but that's not my thing so I can't say anything about it. But the area is ideal for hikers; the nearby parks (the area is filled with parks) are gorgeous -- good for a couple of hours of relaxed walking or a full day of hiking with great views.

The owner, Dan, is very responsive which makes for an easy experience. I look forward to our next visit!

Great Getaway Designer House

  • 5 of 5

What an experience! This designer house is in a great remote location but not too far away from restaurants and the main road. Really makes you feel like you are one with nature. All the detailed work is exceptional! The rooftop deck and outdoor shower are unique. Really made for an enjoyable two nights in the Catskills.

Fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to describe this place as it's so wonderfully different from an ordinary house. It's the best place I've ever stayed and I've stayed at many nice places. The outdoor shower on the roof is a must! Activities in the area: great hiking, rock climbing, swimming in lakes. If you're not a die-hard hiker, no problem -- there's a wide range of trails to take, with plenty of small lakes to cool off in. Dan, by the way, is extremely helpful and responsive. He and his house get an A+!

Remote romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Daniel's place is a fantastic retreat. We love the modern design with huge windows and great views, plus the great tech he added like the Sonos system. The rooftop is fantastic and we spent so much time there just listening to the wildlife. A great escape from Manhattan.

We met Daniel there and he gave us a tour, plus he got us some groceries to get us started. Great meals around the area, too. His place was spotless with everything we needed for a great weekend.

We could not have had a better stay and look forward to coming back in the fall!
