About this listing
On a park-like ridge just up from the creek, looking back at Mohonk Mountain House and Preserve with wild gardens all around, is a large wing you can have all to yourself! There is no kitchen, but a few essentials such as under-the-counter fridge, microwave, tea kettle, coffee maker, and a few utensils and dishes are there for guest use.
In High Falls, with views of the Shawangunk Ridge and the Mohonk Preserve is a 850 square foot private apartment we like to call the West Wing. It has an expansive, lofted living area and one beautiful red bedroom with a private bath. It is on 30 acres with private creek access and just a 90 minute drive from the George Washington Bridge and NYC. A couple of miles up the road are a number of trailheads into the Mohonk Preserve. The historic and charming villages of High Falls and Stone Ridge are just 4 miles away and New Paltz is 11 miles, with every amenity that you might need for a great country stay!
The West Wing is attached to the main house by a private 20 foot long hallway with floor to ceiling glass and views out over the lawns and gardens to the ridge beyond. The large living area includes a spiral staircase to a separate loft for guest use with a 14 foot long by 4 foot wide built-in which is great for lounging or sleeping. There is comfortable seating in the living area underneath the large hanging Moroccan lantern, in three club chairs and on the teak day bed. A flat screen TV is included with HBO, network, Netflix and Apple TV. The dining area has a glass and metal table that seats four, an under the counter refrigerator, microwave, electric tea kettle, and a coffee maker. There is no kitchen on site for guests' use. The bathroom is off the bedroom and has a separate shower and separate tub. The floors are polished concrete with radiant heat. There is AC in the living area and a ceiling fan in the bedroom. The AC does a fantastic job of keeping the whole space comfortable in summer. A large beautiful antique carpet in the living area brings the whole space together!
Although we do offer one night stays, we prefer a two night minimum stay on the weekend and for some holidays three nights. But please contact us and we will be happy to see what might work!
Please ask us first if you would like to bring your dog along. Cats are not invited to stay, sorry! All dogs are asked to stay out of the cultivated garden areas of the property. There is a lot of open area for them to run and play! Check-in is after 4 pm and check-out is by 12 noon unless otherwise arranged. There is no smoking indoors. Any dishes can be left on the provided tray in the private hall, and will be returned clean for your use! No other visitors are allowed on site except those for whom the reservation was made, without direct consent from the owner.
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.
