2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 7
New Paltz, New York
Built in 1847, this Schoolhouse was completely renovated in 2013. It sleeps up to 6 and provides guests a getaway as they look out from the edge of a gorgeous, 120-acre horse farm right near the Shawangunk Mountains (the Gunks). The private house works well for couples, families, friends' reunions, and for creative individuals seeking a quiet retreat.

Inside you'll find hardwood floors, central air-conditioning, and a simple, clean design that will leave you rested. The Master bedroom has a queen bed and views of the farm. The second bedroom has twin beds that can be pushed together to make like a king. The great room has cathedral ceilings, wood beams, skylights, windows on three sides, a pull out double couch, and a bathroom with a tiled bathtub and shower. We have towels and linens for your comfort. There is a flat screen tv,...

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.

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...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
25% due at time of Reservation. Remaining 75% due 4 weeks prior to arrival date.
No refund for leaving earlier than booked. We urge guests who have 7 or more people to consider larger houses! If you request 7, we charge an additional rate to cover the strain on the house and additional cleaning.

On many occasions, when available, our guests enjoy a very late check out (8:00pm). Ask us about this. Sunday afternoons in New Paltz and on the trail can be nice. The cost is $75 cash.

About the neighbourhood
The house sits on the edge of a 120-acre farm that has horses, goats, chickens, and donkeys. There is plenty of open space and lots of woodland. Much of the farm has gorgeous, head-on views of the Shawagunk mountains. Once you've arrived, you are welcome to walk on our carriage trails or go for a snow-shoe or cross-county ski if you are inclined. Parking is easy; the Cottage has a large, driveway and even a one-car garage. The neighborhood is tranquil.

If you are coming from New York City, it's likely that you will want to either drive -- about an hour and twenty minutes from the George Washington Bridge -- or take a direct bus from Port Authority: Adirondack Trailways. The bus ride is about an hour and forty minutes. The New Paltz Bus Station is l...
