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!
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, electric tea kettle, and a coffee machine. 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!
We ask that guests ask before bringing their pets 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.
This spot is magical in so many ways. Very relaxing, private and gorgeous mountain views. And Sterrett is a wonderful & attentive host!! I absolutely love it here.
I have stayed at two other rentals with friends and my husband offered by Sterrett. She has a pure knack for creating special spaces that for me are like a home a way from home. This space is very comfortable and beautifully appointed. The wall of windows with the view of the yard and mountains was magical. We had everything we needed for a lovely Valentine's weekend away.
We will definitely be back :)
Sterrett is a woman of great taste, I know that as I am one too!
Her properties are always immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and relaxing. She is the GO TO person for a fantastic place to stay. That is why I intend to keep staying at her properties.
Sterrett is an excellent host with a lovely home. I'm a terrible planner but she provided a comprehensive email with a plethora of local attractions that helped a lot when it came to planning activities. The entire wing was spotless and it's obvious that she put a lot of effort into the design. She was very flexible with our check out time and was welcoming to our dog as well. My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay very much and had a lovely weekend.
Sterrett was the consummate host and her beautiful space was the perfect weekend retreat. It was filled with so many thoughtful touches and Sterrett has impeccable taste. The light in the space is amazing and radiant heat was a huge plus (we are hooked!) It was also clean and clean could be. We've stayed at a lot of air bnb spots and this was by far our best experience. She was personable and communicative from the get go - her response time to emails was remarkably fast and she provided a thorough and detailed guide to the area. Missing it already - we will definitely be back!
Perfect stay! So much went into the design of this beautiful private wing of Sterrett's tranquil home. She has amazing energy, we were so happy to stay here instead of Mohonk this visit to New Paltz. Such a more private and relaxing experience! Her home is immaculate, bed and pillows super comfortable. Being home and garden enthusiasts ourselves, we especially enjoyed all her incredible books on the shelves! All her recommendations were also superb. We look forward to returning, highly recommended.

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.
