About this listing

A beautiful country house with character and creature comforts, close to the cream of the Hudson Valley! Historic villages, swimming holes, hiking, biking, farmer's markets, vintage shops and flea markets. Available year round just for guests!

The space

(Prices for holiday stays are not reflected in the calendar but are available upon request. Sometimes we offer great deals and get asked if the price is that low because its for just one bedroom in the house! The price does vary depending on the date and number of people staying. You always get the entire 3 BDR house! And this beauty is rented year round, just for guests to enjoy!)

The first photo shows the private driveway leading right up to the house, not a public road. It is nicely set back from the road, with lots of lawn and a big field to romp in, sled, walk your dog, watch deer and other wild critters. This house is a Beauty with lots of character and plenty of room to spread out and get comfortable! In High Falls on 10 acres, minutes from Minnewaska State Park, the Mohonk Preserve and the Mohonk Mountain House, it is surrounded by fabulous scenery, gorgeous country roads, numerous hiking trails, carriage roads and the world famous Trapps rock climbing area. It is an easy 90 minute drive from NYC via the George Washington Bridge and 15-20 minutes from New Paltz. Owned by an artist and writer, the property is available year round just for guests! You won't find any of our clutter, just clean white cotton sheets, fluffy white towels, and curious art and comfortable furniture! And a new SONOS sound system which they say offers all the music on earth!

There are three large, airy and well lit bedrooms with two king beds and one queen. All the beds are topped with memory foam for a great night's sleep. The second floor has central AC which tends to keep the entire house including the first floor cool in summer.The old-fashioned radiators keep everything toasty in the winter. And of course there is the fireplace in the living room with plenty of firewood for you. The main bedroom has its own private, tiled bath with a large soaking tub and a marble sink. The second full bath is also tiled with Italian tile and has a great round copper mirror and a deep-soaking tub. The kitchen is outfitted with stone countertops, high-end appliances and the basic necessities including a variety of quality cookware and spices. The large, comfortable living room is centered around a wood-burning fireplace and ringed by the original, beautiful lead glass windows looking out over the lawns and meadow. The house is furnished with Moroccan, Middle Eastern and Asian rugs and furniture.The beautiful original floors are all in tact and were recently refinished with natural oils. The beautiful old plaster walls and original details such as the walnut banister, the marble mantelpieces, and the extensive wood trim inside and out give the house a feeling of real character. Modern conveniences were added such as two new bathrooms and a remodeled kitchen. The front porch has a large Moroccan mosaic table and chairs plus a gas grill just off the kitchen for outdoor meals. The back porch with rocking chairs and a wicker couch overlooks the meadow towards the Rondout Creek and Catskill Mountains. The property is expansive with great space for dogs to run, kids to sled, and people to stretch out and relax. Less than four miles from the door you will find everything you need; a privately run and fully stocked grocery store, quality wine and liquor store, health food co-op with fresh organics, post office, gas station and numerous restaurants. Live music and bars can be had on the weekends in High Falls, Rosendale and New Paltz. And let's not forget the farm stands and swimming holes and Lake Minnewaska. This is civilized country living at its best!

The Carriage House is also available and can be seen and booked on its separate listing.

This the third time we have stayed in Sterrett's homes. This house is beautiful, charming, and comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking at home. It was unseasonably warm and the central AC worked great for sleeping upstairs. Sterrett is easy to get in touch with when questions arise during your stay. I highly recommend, and will definitely be back.

Beautiful historic house with all of the modern conveniences to make it perfect escape. It was a real treat to stay here! Everything was just as it was described and Sterrett was very helpful. The house was very clean and comfortable. We hiked while we were in the area and had a lot of fun poking around the local towns. I highly recommend this place for anyone!

We loved our stay in High Falls! The house is truly magical, elegant and comfortable. Listening to birds and looking for deer while having our morning coffee on the back porch will not be soon forgotten. The house offers luxurious accommodations with large rooms (love the family room), comfortable beds, modern bathrooms and an amazing kitchen. Elegant, architecturally significant and artful in its decor, this house is much more then a place to crash. Location is great if you're visiting Minnewaska, about a 15 min drive to the park. We stayed with our two dogs and they loved the house as well! Just do it.

This was a lovely home and great weekend getaway! We were allowed to bring our dog which was really something. The beds are luxurious memory foam and the towels are ample and fluffy. There are more pillows then you could use! Everything you could need was provided (kitchen tools, coffee machine, Wi-Fi, Apple TV, some pantry staples, etc). This home would be better suited for more then two guests, but the extra room was enjoyable and gave us the great idea to come back with a group! It is close to the vineyards and about 16 minutes from New Paltz. There is a welcome e-mail that reviews all of the local attractions in the area. Sterrett is a gracious host and we would love to visit some of the other properties she owns.

The home was comfortable and inviting, and so wonderfully decorated. It made for a great place to stay and check out all of the great things that Highs Falls and the surrounding area have to offer. Sterrett was a wonderful host and the level of communication made the check in/out process very easy. I would recommend without hesitation staying in this beautiful home.

Sterrett User ProfileSterrett is a superhost.

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.
