Property description

Our historic 4 bedroom French Huguenot style farmhouse was built in 1796 and is bordered by 6,400 acres of the forests, streams and lakes of the Mohonk Preserve designated by the Nature Conservancy as one of the "Earth's Last Great Places". You can literally step out of the house onto over 80 miles of hiking and biking trails.

The entire home was completely remodeled in 2013 and has all new appliances and furnishings. There is a chef’s kitchen with island and adjacent dining area with large country dining table for family meals. The living room has a massive stone fireplace for evenings by the fire.

All the bedrooms are designed for comfort with pillow top mattresses. Three bedrooms have king sized beds, one king that can be separated into twin beds and one bedroom has a queen sized bed. The master bedroom has its own private bath.

The house has air conditioning and all bedrooms have ceiling fans. There is WiFi.

The stone back deck is a great place to observe wildlife including squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, deer, cardinals, great blue heron, and Canada geese. The back deck is also equipped with a BBQ, chaise lounges, and dining table for outdoor living.

The house is located between the Hamlet of High Falls and the town of New Paltz and is minutes away from the renowned Mohonk Mountain House with its spa ranked #1 in the country by Conde Nast. Monhonk Mountain House also has a fabulous restaurant, tennis courts, and golf course.

Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the nearby hiking and biking paths, rock climbing, swimming and cross country skiing. The area is also known for fantastic antiquing and great restaurants, given its proximity to the Culinary Institute of America located just across the Hudson River.

Rental is available year-round on a flexible basis for guests and families looking for a quiet, relaxing rural retreat or active family vacation.

Check-in is after 4pm and check-out is by 11 am unless otherwise arranged directly with the manager.

Year Purchased: 2012

Why High Falls, NY, USA:
We fell in love with the High Falls area when our daughter chose it for her wedding in 2008. Having a stone farm house surrounded by the natural beauty of this area of the Hudson River Valley is a dream come true for us and is a homecoming of sorts for Susan who grew up in Poughkeepsie. We are only the fifth family to own the home and are honored to be part of its incredible 217 year history. Our primary residence is in Sonoma County, California where we grow wine grapes and produce wine under our own label.
