About the Property

2+ Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom

We have purchased an old Catskill-style bungalow colony near the village of Kerhonkson in a semi-rural area of Ulster County, NY. It consists of a main guesthouse, and three bungalows. We have decided to rent the newly refurbished back of the main guesthouse to vacationers. The front unit will be available later this summer and the other cottages are unoccupied.

Please keep in mind that this is a no-frills vacation rental -- a rustic country home, an artist's studio, writer's retreat and hiker's haven. The colony is still a work in progress, and a labor of love. If you are looking for something sleek or sophisticated, this is probably not the place for you. Still, the home is roomy, with windows everywhere that bring air, light and views of forest, meadow, the bungalows, and the pond. There is no TV reception, though we do have a TV and DVD player.

There is a large bedroom with local antiques with a view to the pond, and a smaller bedroom with a full-size bed that is airy and bright with views to the bungalows, AC window units in each bedroom. A decent sized open kitchen with vintage 1940s dining set, a living room and a front room that serves as a dining/sitting area but also has a full-size futon bed and can be closed off entirely as a bedroom. We have also added a den with a daybed where a child can sleep, or airbeds are also available. The place can sleep 7 people, though there is only one bathroom.

We have 5.5 acres of land, plus a large lawn and firepit/bbq. Our well water comes from off the mountainside, filtered through rock – it tested pure and it’s delicious.

We are located on the back slope of the Shawangunk Mountains, on the eastern edge of Roundout Valley, with the Catskills on the other side. We are a 12-minute walk to Old Minnewaska Trail, which leads right into Minnewaska State Park and all the climbing, hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, etc. you could want – no need to get in the car and drive to the park with all the masses. We are less than a 10-minute drive to Lake Minnewaska and about 15-20 minutes to Mohonk and New Paltz. The area looks like Vermont – verdant mountains and sustainable farms, plus wineries, antiques, galleries etc. It is a short drive to High Falls, Rosendale, Kingston and Woodstock. We are an easy 90 miles from NYC.
