Lovely retreat from the city

  • 5 of 5

A short drive from beautiful walks, lakes and the great outdoors. Deric was responsive and helpful throughout. The property is exactly as shown and a short drive from markets, golf, and other activities. We had a wonderful weekend!

Gorgeous views

  • 3 of 5

The outside of the house is gorgeous and the the front porch and views out the back are phenomenal! My 3.5 year old twins had a blast running around the front yard while we sat on the porch. The inside of the house is well decorated and pretty comfortable although it does feel as if it is in the beginning stages of being rented (there was no info sheet about the house and it seemed to be often in use so it didn't feel like there was as much space cleared out for renters) and a few projects in the house which the owner is aware of. All in all it is a good spot to enjoy the outdoors and the surrounding area, including the Maritime and Trolley Museums in Kingston (favorites with the toddler set) as well as the nearby playground in Accord, Rail Trail directly down the hill from the house, and the Belleayre Beach up past Phoenicia.

A magical place

  • 5 of 5

We had a memorable stay at this beautiful house set up on a hill overlooking the Shawangunk mountains. As nice as the photos are they don't really do justice to the remarkable location and the feeling of peace and serenity. The house itself is lovely and spacious, comfortable, and decorated beautifully. I can see it being the perfect retreat for every season as there are two fireplaces, and windows on all sides let the outside in. Besides what you see in the photos there is a cook's kitchen as well as a formal dining room, living room, laundry and powder room. The porch wraps around 2 sides of the house and will be the place you won't want to leave. Upstairs are the bedrooms and 2 full baths. We stayed for 10 days and had a few issues, which you usually have with rural properties upstate. Derick was an amazing host and responded right away, making sure that everything was right. We hope to visit again next year for an even longer stay.

Wonderful weekend get-away. Very Spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I stayed there for a weekend in May and it was more than I expected. The house is set on top of a bluff which makes for great views of the catskills. We loved walking the driveway, and the property lends itself to really feeling like you are completely away from everyone else. The shaded Maple trees kept us cooler on the front rap around deck while we sipped ICE TEA! The house is fairly so the amenities are very nice. The location is nicely set so we went walking on a trail next to a creek. Great way to enjoy the spring time.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

This is a pleasant, well-appointed home with a lovely view of the mountains. Located in Kerhonkson, a town about 15 to 20 minutes drive from the entrance to Minnewaska State Park. From the house you can drive to any number of trailheads in the state park or the Mohonk Preserve. There are really great hiking/biking/running trails in the area, and rock climbing too.
