The 3 Bedrooms include 3 queen sized beds which will accommodate 6 people. All linens are provided. there is one full bath with shower and tub on the second floor and a half bath on the first floor. One bedroom is a loft with a balcony overlooking the living room.
Cable, internet connections are included. Brand new washer, dryer. Filtered water as well. Please note that although there is a large open fireplace in the living room my guests will not be able to use it. My insurance company has deemed it to hazardous. Please honor this and be safe.
The lovely old trees provide plenty of shade and natural cooling. This is a perfect place to vacation whether you would like to stay at home and lounge in the yard or on the patio or take in the many sites and sounds of the gorgeous Hudson Valley. Winter is also a good time to visit this area, ski areas are in close proximity and rail trails are available for free cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
There is rock climbing and hiking in the beautiful Shawangunks or visiting local art galleries and historic places like FDR estate in Hyde Park. Several colleges in the area have music and theater. Woodstock is 20miles away. Plenty for children to do with public swimming and children's activities close by.

This area is rich in history and culture so there is a great deal to do. My favorite areas are Minnewaska State Park and the Mohonk Preserve where you can hike, bike, bird watch and swim. The now famous Walkway OVer the Hudson is one of the newest attractions. If you like rock climbing there is the world famous Shawangunk Ridge a few miles away.
FDR library, Vanderbilt Mansion are beautiful historic sites that are close by. Vassar, Bard, Marist and New Paltz College close by for art exhibits, theater, music. Many free outdoor concerts in town and nearby.
Year Purchased: 1967
About the owner: I am a retired school administrator who has lived in the Hudson Valley my entire life. I like to spend the summer in RI with my children and grandchildren. This year I will also spend most of the winter there. My house is so lovely that I want to share it with others. I have been renting for 5 summers while I go to RI and everyone who stays here enjoys themselves. I love to cook so the kitchen is very well equipped with nice appliances and cooking utensils. I am an avid outdoor enthusiast so the large outdoor area is great for eating or birdwatching.
Why the Owner Chose Highland, Ulster County, NY, USA:
This property is close to many major points of interest but private. Access to so many places is very easy. There are buses going into Poughkeepsie and New Paltz if you prefer not to drive. The rail trail system is a short distance away and there is easy access to the Walkway Over the Hudson. There is always something to do for adults and children. Check the local paper for activities and restaurant guide.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house has a lovely 'feel' to it and you will immediately feel at home. The rooms are large and gently decorated with hardwood floors throughout. It is easy to care for and lovely to look at. I especially like the outdoor space where it is fun to read and relax.
