The space
This is a Passive house, very efficient and well insulated, with focussed attention to eliminate thermal bridging in the construction. The windows are triple paned and run over 20 feet from floor to ceiling in the living area. The ceiling is insulated to R-92, for those who might be interested in this valuable and ecological method of construction coming to us from Europe. What it comes down to is that the place is really comfortable and at a constant steady temperature no matter the weather. The air inside is replaced and refreshed completely every hour. The buildings lungs are kitted out with MERV-13 filters! There is a separate bedroom, also with huge windows and a lovely view of the Mohonk Preserve Ridge and the Mountain House. The full bath comes with a deep soaking tub and shower.
The kitchen includes all appliances with a dishwasher as well all utensils, a selection of pots and pans, coffee maker, etc. The kitchen and living room are one large and comfortable room. A TV with cable, HBO, Cinemax, Showtime and WIFI as well as a Sonos speaker are there for guests to enjoy.
But the view is what makes it! There is a gorgeous panorama of sky and ridge line with ever changing light and meandering wildlife in the meadow below. The cottage is in its own "room" of oaks and hickories, oldies, backed by gardens and a parklike lawn.

WE DO NOT GENERALLY OFFER REFUNDS FOR STORMY WEATHER, COLD WEATHER, SNOW STORMS, ETC. Please be prepared for country driving and being snowed or iced in for a number of hours during active weather. We have a wonderful plow person who keeps our driveway passable and at time will salt and sand for us. He times his passes for maximum effectiveness and does not plow continuously. It can be wonderful fun in the winter to just get cosy, or get out and enjoy the snow!

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 happy 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. We are thrilled to have found a sweet spot on top of a hill with great views that we would love to share with you!!

During your stay

WE WILL BE UNABLE TO WELCOME ANY OUT OF STATE GUESTS (from states not contiguous with NYS) NOW DURING THIS MANDATED QUARANTINE AND INTENSIVE COVID TESTING PERIOD. WE SO APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE!! WE CAN'T WAIT TO GET BACK TO A TIME WHEN WE ARE ALL SAFE TO MOVE ABOUT AGAIN! (Guests from NJ, CT, VT, PA, and MA are welcome!)

ATTENTION:
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has announced new guidelines allowing out-of-state travelers to New York to “test out” of the mandatory 14-day quarantine. Travelers from states that are contiguous with New York will continue to be exempt from the travel advisory; however covered travelers must continue to fill out the Traveler Health Form. Essential workers will continue to be exempt as well. The new protocol is effective Wednesday, November 4.

Happy to help at anytime and am easily available by text! We live on the same 30 acres and are reachable if needed. During this time of prolonged emphasis on social distancing, please reach out through the Airbnb thread or by text. Easy access to the cottage is arranged after reservations are completed.
