About Ann Kindberg
I live in Los Angeles and work in television. I try to get back to Cragsmoor as often as I can, but that is not very often, unfortunately.
Ann Kindberg purchased this House in 2008
Why Ann Kindberg chose Cragsmoor
My father and my Grandfather grew up in Cragsmoor. I spent summers in Cragsmoor with my brothers and it is one of our favorite places in the world. A copy of a painting of my father at age 9, by Helen Turner, hangs over the fireplace. It is called 'Mountain Boy.' A copy of a painting by E.L. Henry (who lived nest door) hangs in the 100 year old Cragsmoor Free Library. It is called 'Country School' and features my Grandfather, standing at the front of the class at age 6. I bought my house after my father told me to call Sally Matz (President of the Historical Society) and ask her to recommend a house to buy. Sally grew up down the hill on Schuyler Road from where my father grew up and her grandfather was the great illustrator, Arthur I. Keller. That's why!
What makes this House unique
There is no pressure. Your stay can be thrilling and challenging if that's what you want (rock climbing, hang gliding) or serene and beautiful (walks and books and food) or both.

Cradled by nature, a beautiful hideaway. Cozy cottage, very tastefully decorated. Great place to relax and unwind.
This place is in a beautiful location. From the pictures we reviewed the impression was rustic and we are ok with that. However rustic should not mean run down. The toilet upstairs required constant plunging to assist in flushing. The floor tiles in the downstairs bathroom were loose, missing grout and the threshold broken. The condition of the floor would make it difficult to keep clean. There was other areas of the home that were also needing repair and maintenance. This place has great potential if the owner would put a little money back into the rental. We would not stay here again.
The photos don't do it justice. Just a lovely place to stay. Peace and quiet with a view of the mountains and the changing leaves. What more could we want? We thoroughly enjoyed our week here at the house in Cragsmoor.
Our stay in Cragsmoor at this superbly appointed home was delightful in all aspects. We look forward to our next visit.
Beautiful home in a beautiful neighborhood
Our family really enjoyed staying in this lovely home. It’s beautifully appointed and well supplied. The master bedroom is large and comfortable. The front room looks out over the very pretty lawn. We saw so many deer in the area. Some of the nearby homes are really stunning, too. There’s a beautiful church just down the road as well. We had a great stay and definitely would recommend the house to others.
I have been to the area for years nice to be close to all.
Place could have been a little cleaner other than that a joyful time had by all.
Cragsmoor has served as a cool mountain escape from city life since the middle of the 19th century. It was and is an artists' colony and many of its homes were designed and built by Frederick Dellenbaugh, a self taught architect and explorer with John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt. Cragsmoor is situated on the top of the Shawangunk Ridge at the Southern end of the Catskill Mountains. The views are spectacular and Rock outcroppings on the east and the west side of Cragsmoor provide hiking and rock climbing opportunities and in July and August, abundant blueberries, free for the picking. The 'Borsht Belt' resorts were actually located in the Shawangunk Mountains, and The Nevele, a sister resort of Grossinger's, is planning to reopen, with a casino.
