  • We had an amazing time in New Paltz at The Retreat with Toni and Kevin. Toni and Kevin are great hosts and their home has much to offer guest, including the most amazing views! A very short drive to Main St. and everything New Paltz has to offer. We'll definitely stay again.

  • Toni and Kevin left the space very neat and clean. They took the time to explain all of the needed information in a detailed email prior to our stay and setup a very comfortable queen sized airbed. Our stay was quite peaceful and comfortable. Thanks Again.

  • My friends and I had a lovely time at the Retreat at VanBuren Media Lab. The views were breathtaking, and it was the peaceful getaway we were looking for. The space is very large and well kept. We only met with the hosts once when we arrived and were left to our on devices for the remainder of our trip. The only negative feedback we had was beware of bugs! There were three very large spiders that we saw in the apartment overnight. Luckily we had one girl willing to kill them. Granted, you're in nature and should be aware that this is a possibility, but be on the lookout! Otherwise, it was a fantastic place to stay, and we've all discussed staying again for more than just one night!

  • Stayed here the weekend of a wedding in wallkill. The apartment was very cozy and extremely clean. We had our privacy which was important to us. We will come back again!

  • The Retreat at Van Buren Media Lab exceeded our expectations. Met by host Kevin, we found the apartment to be spotless and comfortable. It easily accommodated the sleeping, cooking and eating needs of our group of 4 adults and 1 child. We had plenty of extra seating room to host extended family for one afternoon's visit. The mountain views were spectacular and we enjoyed the overall peacefulness and birdsong outside. Being only a few minutes drive to the campus of SUNY New Paltz on graduation weekend was a special bonus. We definitely recommend this location and will consider staying here again.

  • The Retreat at Van Buren Media Lab is a 1 bedroom apartment in the basement of a ranch style home, that opens to a big back yard with a gorgeous view of the hudson valley. Don't let the basement part deter you - the space is immaculately clean and well furnished, with no musty order or dampness. The tile floor is cold, as someone else mentioned, but just wear socks and you'll be fine. I image it's quite nice in the heat of summer.

    My fiancé and I stayed at the Retreat after spending a day having lunch and exploring the grounds at the Mohonk Mountain House. For anyone who wants to take advantage of all the activities at Mohonk without spending a fortune on a room - the Retreat is a perfect solution.

    Everything was very comfortable (thank you for leaving a fan in the closet!), and we had no problems with hot water, even after running the dishwasher. The bathroom towels were plentiful and of great quality.

    Kevin and Toni were very responsive, friendly and accommodating of all our requests. We also thoroughly enjoyed the photography showcased in the space!

    Can't wait to come back!

  • We stayed at the VanBuren Media Lab last weekend and really enjoyed our stay. Kevin was very helpful. The place was very clean and well set up. We were 3 adults and 2 kids, and the kids loved running around the outdoor space.

    The location is right off a main road but still quiet at night. Unlike other reviewers, we had plenty of hot water. In addition to the main bedroom, there was the pull-out couch and an air mattress set up for us. We used all the beds. Blankets were warm, towels were nice and fluffy.

    The only recommendation I'd make to others is to bring your own pillows.

  • We had an absolutely amazing time at the VB retreat! The view from the apartment is georgoues, and we were just lucky to have caught the fall colors of the mountains! The apartment was well kept, clean and full of amenities. The hosts have prepared an extra bed for us and let us know how to set up the grill and use the TV. We also ha our privacy thus we could get some much needed rest. I would definitely return and I recommend the place for anyone!

  • The Van Buren Media Lab was an absolutely perfect fall getaway! My boyfriend and I came for a weekend away from NYC with another couple and the house was lovely, warm, and spacious. Just a few minutes from Main Street, the house was in a great New Paltz location. Kevin suggested some great food spots and wineries. The house is also located a few doors down from a great apple orchard - ideal for families! We absolutely suggest this spot for anyone looking for a Hudson Valley retreat.
