::Ready to explore Warwick?
Nestled in the heart of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area between the Catskill Mountains and New York City, Warwick is a quaint farm and trading town dating back to the 1700s.
Located 3 miles west of Warwick at the end of the winding Iron Mountain Road directly adjacent (technically, the entrance is 300' from the driveway) to 16,000 acre Wayayanda State Park.
A fire ring (along with plenty of wood and stump seats) is located on a small granite hill in the southeast corner of the property and is available for your use. Also available is a 4 person hot tub built into the back fieldstone patio.
Relax on the Mountain - elevated 1000' - sitting atop the 3 acre property, located on a ridge running east-west (affording amazing morning and evening light). The property is a mix of mature hardwood trees and stone walls.
A wildlife trail runs along the eastern border of the property and is easily viewed from the comfort of the guesthouse. We frequently see groups of wild turkeys, families of deer, numerous song birds and woodpeckers, and even an occasional black bear (don't worry they're shy and are scared of people).
Spring time attractions include: hiking in Wawayanda State Park, 300' south of our driveway; playing with chickens and goats while enjoying lunch and a cold one and listening to live music one at Pennings nursery (5 mins); Warwick Valley Winery (10 mins); Antiquing (there's a great spot at the bottom of Iron Mtn Road).
...AND the Appalachian Trail is only a one mile hike out the front door!
::Hungry? Our favorite restaurant, The Grange, serves Michelin quality farm to table cuisine and is located 20 minute walk (1.25 miles) downhill from the property. If you're looking for more selection there are over 25 restaurants and bars in Warwick (10 minute drive).
::Want to be pampered? The full service Mineral Springs Spa is located 15 minutes west of the property. It offers massage packages, a gym, swimming pool, daycare, and restaurant.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
