“Perfect for a quiet weekend”
Reviewed 28 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Very cozy and quaint. Everything we needed for the weekend. Even a bottle of wine! There were even some toys for the kids to play with and kid friendly movies. They thought of everything.

“Wonderful escape to peace and nature!”
Reviewed 11 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This is a perfect location and house for a weekend away with plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors! For the sports enthusiasts, there is great road cycling (right out the door), nearby mountain biking for all levels of abilities (Lake Minnewaska, Mohonk, Lippman park), swimming (Lake Minnewaska or the Ulster County Pool), miles of trail running, rock climbing, and kayaking all < 15 minutes from the house. For those who prefer a more relaxing escape there is a great fire pit next to the house as well as a grill for relaxing evenings outdoors, the Ulster Country Fairgrounds and a local fruit market are both 5 minutes away, and you can stroll around New Paltz or cross the Hudson River by foot. We never did any horseback riding but love going to look at (and pet) the horses and donkeys. I know there are plenty of winter activities in this area as well. The house was extremely comfortable with plenty of space for 4 adults and had all amenities (and more) than we would need. Cell service is spotty in this area in general (mountains), however, the wifi in the house always gave us a strong signal.

We were delighted to have Christine and family at the Cottage and look forward to their return visit. It's fun to visit Year-round. Their review captures so well what makes New Paltz fun! Hiking, swimming, bicycling and a fun,small College town and Main StreRegarding cell service, we do better with Verizon & Credo than we used to with AT&T.

“Wonderful Getaway To Relax And Explore”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed at the Schoolhouse Cottage over a weekend while some of us were participating in the Rock The Ridge 50-Mile Endurance Challenge taking place in the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park. We could not have picked a better place to prepare for and recover from the race. The lovingly renovated cottage is perfectly situated, only a short car ride into New Paltz as well as to Mohonk and Minnewaska. The house offered everything we needed and is a cozy retreat we will be sure to visit again. Booking and communication with Tom, the owner, were a breeze and a true pleasure. While we could only have a brief look at the farm, horses, and donkeys this time around, we will make sure to get better acquainted next time around. Thank you, Tom and Julie, for making us feel so welcome.

How often do you meet people who run 50 miles in one day -- for the Mohonk Preserve's environmental fundraiser, no less?! We loved having Nadine, Michael and friends at the Schoolhouse Cottage at La Luna Farm. Looking forward to their return visits! Tom and Julie

“Beautiful getaway near New Paltz and other attractions in the area.”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I recently stayed at the School House with two friends. It is a very comfortable cottage with ample room to cook, rest, relax. We were greeted by a bottle of wine from the region (which didn't last long) and a very comfortable, homey atmosphere.

It was a bit hot while we were there so we didn't sit out in the yard much but in cooler weather we would have take advantage of that.

Tom, the proprietor was very gracious and helpful. He encouraged us to walk down the lane towards the farm. On the way we passed a field where there were 3 horses. They were as curious about us as we were about them.

We were delighted to have Judy and friends here - and glad that they found their way to see Valkill, Eleanor Roosevelt's house and that they made a trip to the Culinary Institute, too! Tom & Julie
