About the property

Newly Constructed Custom Home On 5 Acres, Views Of The Gunks, Close To New Paltz

The perfect escape. 4 bedroom (2 masters), 3.5 bath custom home on 5 private acres just a 10 min drive from the heart of New Paltz. Located on a quiet road that ends at the Wallkill River, the house sits on 5 private acres. Construction just finished in December 2014 and the house is complete with an open floor plan, a gourmet fully stocked chef's kitchen, screened in porch and all the amenities. Everything is new - furniture and mattresses, tableware, linens, TVs and sound system, etc.

The kitchen is fully stocked with GE Monogram appliances (6-burner stove), pots, pans, roasters, serving dishes, bakingware, cuisinart, blender, dinnerware for 12+ and all the staples you need (spices, oils, vinegars) for cooking.

Living area has 2 large couches and wood-burning fireplace.

Entertainment includes a separate TV room off of the living room, a TV in upstairs master bedroom and a Sonos speaker system. Karaoke microphones included!

Kid friendly with toys and kids table, portable crib and bunk beds, and a big unfinished basement for kids to blow off steam when the weather's bad.

A big deck and screened in porch with charcoal grill and outdoor furniture for enjoying the surroundings, watching the deer go by or enjoying the stars.

Side entrance opens into a mud room and full laundry room.

A 10 min drive to the restaurants, shops and all New Paltz has to offer, 5 min to the county fairgrounds and pool, 15 minutes to Minnewaska State Park, and 20 minutes to Mohonk Mountain House. A great base for exploring the Hudson Valley and Catskills. 90 minute drive from the Upper West Side, 2 hours from Brooklyn, easy access on/off the highway.

About Allison Henger

We were Brooklyn-based big fans of the Hudson Valley, the Catskills and New Paltz, which we got to know through one of our best friends who grew up there. With 2 young kids, we wanted a retreat for space and peace of mind and have tried our best to create just that. We recently moved out West on a whim and so are sharing our home with you. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do!

So Satisfied

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful home for two months this past winter. We traveled there from Manhattan for weekend retreats. Allison is an amazing host and very accessible by phone and email. She responded very quickly and thoroughly to all of our questions. The location of the house is perfect. It is quiet and peaceful, yet you are never more than a 5 - 10 minute drive to a large super market, restaurants or peaceful mountains and trails. We love to cook and the kitchen was fully and thoughtfully stocked -- even the knives were of great quality and sharp. Whether you like to grill, bake or roast...Allison has everything you will need. The house is incredibly comfortable, and knowing it is an energy efficient one, is a bonus. We loved exploring New Paltz and the surrounding towns. Even in the middle of winter without much snow, there is always something to do. We have a teenage daughter and she loved it. It is a great for family and friends. Thanks so much, Allison, for a wonderful experience.

Best House Hands Down

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! I don't even know where to begin. My friends and I love to travel and rent out houses every winter in different places and so far this has been my favorite hands down! The pictures don't do it any justice. This house has EVERYTHING you would need during your stay. From the kitchen to the bedrooms, living room, laundry room, patio, children's toys/room, etc!! I was soo impressed. It is super close to so many cool activities, such as the winery, waterfalls, bars, restaurants but yet you can still go back and enjoy the quietness of the house. Allison was super amazing all throughout. She was very quick to respond to my emails and any inquiries. I definitely recommend this house and my friends and I cannot wait to go back this summer and this time for a longer stay

Home sweet home and more!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here over the Christmas holiday and we couldn't have been more pleased! The house was exactly like the photos! Top of the line everything, especially the kitchen. We had visitors for dinner at night and there was everything you needed to cook a great meal. The beds were extremely comfortable, not to worry here. And as we had a 1 year old with us, the extra children's items were a nice addition.

My son dealt with Allison and she responded to every email quickly and was very accommodating to our needs. There are no surprises here... rent this house and be assured of a great rental property... just leave time for us because we're going back

Beautiful property in New Paltz

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Allison's house as a group of 4 couples over Thanksgiving weekend and had a fantastic time. The house is beautiful, clean, spacious, and very well stocked. We had everything we needed to cook and enjoy the Thanksgiving meal. The town of New Paltz is very close and there is also great hiking nearby but the house is so cozy that we actually did not even bother to leave the house on one of the days. Allison is very responsive and the booking process was smooth. I would highly recommend this property.

Pictures Don't Do It Justice!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My group and I rented this beautiful house for the weekend of October 30th, 2015. We were a group of 4 couples (2 married with kids, 1 married without kids, and 1 long-term dating) looking to spend the weekend in the Hudson Valley and to enjoy the fall activities. After looking at several places in the area we narrowed it down to 2-3 places of which this location was one. The determining factors in choosing this location were the price and the location.

Given the relatively low price and great location we were not expecting too much and boy were we pleasantly surprised! The house is absolutely stunning! Everything is brand new and wonderfully decorated. The house sits upon 5 acres of land and is very peaceful and quiet. The house comes fully equipped with cable, internet, SONOS sound bar, fireplace (with plenty of firewood) and brand new appliances and kitchenware.

Allison was a delight to deal with. Not only was she very accommodating but was quick to replay to any questions or requests. The rules of the house were straight-forward, easy to follow and simple to comply with. Allison even leaves coffee and some snacks around for you to enjoy and, as mentioned above, supplies all the firewood for the house (a rarity in my vacation-home-rental experience). My deposit was returned promptly (another rarity) and my financial dealings with Allison could not have been easier.

My only regret is that we did not stay for longer!

Amazing Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was the perfect spot for a weekend getaway from the city. Very convenient location to get to the many cute towns and great hiking spots in the area, while also giving us a private escape on a beautiful property. Loved cooking in the brand new and spacious kitchen, curling up on the couches in front of the fireplace in the cozy living room, and looking up at the stars from the back deck. The owners were so helpful giving us recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area and the house was stocked with everything we needed. We had the best time on a romantic weekend, but the house also would be great for bringing the kids or a group of friends. Can't wait to go back!
