Secluded, rustic oasis in the Catskills with all the modern amenities. Open air 2-story 2-bedroom with large fenced yard, 18 ft ceilings, stocked kitchen, 2 decks. Pets are welcome for an additional cleaning fee.

The space
Secluded house on a dandy acre of wooded land nestled in the protected Mohonk Preserve in the Hudson Valley, southeastern tip of the Catskills. 2 to 2.5 hrs from NYC.

Here and nearby you will find hiking, rock climbing, swimming, skiing, hammock napping, waffle making, blueberry picking, apple picking, wineries, biking, corn grilling, stars stars stars, and PEACE and QUIET.

The Wildernest is a rustic wood house with modern amenities, handmade and homespun, but also equipped with all the necessities and some added recreational accessories. There is central heat, a wood stove, and a large fenced in yard.

Nearby is the beautiful Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park, home to the famed Mohonk Mountain House, a beautiful inn and spa perched on a mountain peak. It's a great place to spend the day and spoil yourself with a massage, soak in the hot tub and nature-inspired spa services.

WHAT'S IN THE HOUSE:
Appliances, coffee maker, grill, grill tools, knives, oils and spices, some dry goods, bedding, towels, pillows, cleaning supplies, soaps, dvd player, tons of dvds, stereo w/mini input for your device, hdmi projector and projector screen. If you have an hdmi adapter you can watch movies from your laptop. The place is pretty well stocked.

WHAT'S NOT IN THE HOUSE:
INTERNET. I know, tragedy. But this is the best thing about it, especially if you are a NYCer. You WILL NOT reap the benefits of an escape outside the city unless you agree with yourself to unplug.

Grocery and supply shopping should happen on the way in, in New Paltz is best. The closest grocery store is about 30 minutes away, so you'll want to try and bring in everything you'll need.

There have been occasions, if there is a storm, that the power goes out temporarily. It happens because the house is in such a rural area and the electricity is delicate. It's not because the house's infrastructure is not up to snuff. It has happened to me in winter during or after a storm, and it has happened when guests have been staying there. One of those occasions was during Hurricane Irene, which ravaged the area and shut down power for as long as a week in some places. If anything like this were to happen, I will give you a partial to full refund, depending on the situation.

Other things to note
The Wildernest is on a very rural private road. Its seclusion is what makes us love the place, but keeping our road smooth for driving is a continuous battle with nature. It is optimal to have a car with good ground clearance and/or all-wheel-drive.
