The space

So its a garret, and its above the garage and you have to walk by the gardening tools and up a flight of stairs, but...Its minutes to the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park...Four miles to High Falls and Stone Ridge, the High Falls Food Co-op, restaurants (The Egg's Nest, The Kitchenette, or vegetarian @ The Rosendale Cafe), little shops (check out vintage country furniture and other wares @ "Downtown" in Accord from 12-5 on weekends), antique stores, three fabulous family-run farm stands, and a three season flea market (in High Falls on Sundays from April thru October)...Three minute stroll down to private Rondout Creek access...Two minutes to scrumptious views of the ridge from the lawn...AND its cheap, beautiful, very friendly and private at the same time... Has a mini kitchenette, bath with shower (no tub), and most things you might need! The Garret is about 500 square feet of open living space with WIFI, a king size bed, Moroccan carpet, pickled pine floors, lofted ceiling, AC, warm in winter, big comfy velvet covered couch, just a few pots and pans and utensils, two burner stove (no oven), under the counter fridge, and big wall of windows with view of Minnewaska in winter. All this on 30 acres minutes from hiking/climbing/biking in the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park.
We are located just 90 miles from the George Washington Bridge in NYC. Off exit 18/New Paltz on the New York State thruway, it is a twenty minute scenic drive over the Shawangunk Ridge, just past the famous Mohonk Mountain House and trailheads for the Mohonk Preserve.
Although we do definitely offer one night stays, it is for last minute availability or mid-week stays mostly (Sunday through Thursday). Generally we like a two night minimum stay on the weekend and for some holidays, three nights. Contact us and we would be happy to see what will work!
We have three other rentals which might interest you! On this property but in another building is The West Wing, an 850 square foot apartment for two, no kitchen, but lots of comfort and style. Located just .6 miles down the road, (as seen on the map below as Catherine Harnden House) and across the creek, we rent out two houses, the 1840 Carriage House and the 1840 Greek Revival, both on the same 10 acres.

My boyfriend and I travel often and have stayed at many airbnb's globally, and Sterrett's place definitely makes it in our top 5!!!! Between the beautiful grounds, excellent communication and accommodation details, this should be your next place to stay! What we loved most: The room at the Garrett- About 600 sq ft of beautifully ornate living space, offering a high ceiling, lots of light, beautiful views of the pond, the most comfortable bed you have ever slept on, Sterrett's gorgeous paintings and the warming charm of a country setting where you hear nothing but birds and crickets. The pictured of the room don't give the room any justice until you have seen it in person. Location- 10 minute drive too Lake Minnewaska and other hiking trails around Minnewaska State Park. 15-20 minutes from New Paltz and 30 minutes from Kingston Private Chef Jeannette- Sterrett's neighbor down the road and across from the Greek Revival House. Highly recommend having her cook you one of her 4 course dinners. My boyfriend and I were up from Manhattan for our anniversary and we wouldn't have chosen anything else more romantic, delicious and for a reasonable price! She offers a lot of Moroccan inspired cooking and still thinking about theme of the best lamb I have ever had! It was extremely tender, savory and had plenty leftover that she packed for us to take home!

Sterrett's space is beautiful, more spacious than pictured, quiet and peace-filled. The views from the property are magnificent. The host, Sterrett could not be more welcoming and helpful. We can't wait to return.

Great stay! Came up for a friend's wedding and this location was the perfect distance from the venue. Very nice, homey space. Loved the lavender toiletries and the bed was very comfortable. Communication was clear and easy. Happily recommend staying here.

I am first of all a painter but have found myself over the years building and renovating, something I truly enjoy. My husband is a writer and also director of a graduate program in NYC. We made the critical decision years ago to move to the Hudson Valley in order to have the space we needed for our large library, painting studio, and land for a vegetable garden and fruit trees.
