Beautiful, well appointed renovated school house sitting on 5 acres of land with access to a private river. Short drive to Hunter Ski Mountain.

The space
Beautiful, well appointed renovated school house sitting on 5 acres of land with access to a private river.

You can hide out on this lovely property, or drive a short distance in any direction for antiquing, hiking, skiing and exploring.

There is a queen bed, a double bed and a couch.

Swimming in the river, sun baking, and walking are all recommended in summer. The area is very quiet, and you can feel completely in the country, yet just a few miles from so much else. There are many activities on offer such as golf, tennis, mini golf, go carting, hunter zip line, and more.

Pick up your groceries before you arrive and just relax, or venture out to enjoy someone else's cooking (a number of excellent choices at reasonable prices, I made some recommendations in the airbnb guide book). Endless other things to do.

The house is centrally located, roughly 6 miles from exit 20 NYS Thruway, minutes from HITS horse riding facility. 20 mins from Woodstock; 30 mins from Hudson, 15 mins to Saugerties and Catskill towns.

There is a bus from the city Trailways to Palenville stop is the best way on public transport, then a taxi from there is possible. There is also the Amtrak train to Hudson (this is 30min drive from the house)

Wireless router in the house next door provides strong internet access. Login details in the house manual on the airbnb listing.

Verizon cell coverage is generally better than ATT in this area.

Guest access
Welcome to walk down the property to access the roughly 4 acres of mowed grass land and swim in the river which is down the hill.. follow the path.

Other things to note
There is a new TV in the house that has an Apple TV connected to it. There is also a stereo for playing music.

There is a Nescafe Nespresso Coffee machine in the house. You will need to bring your own coffee pods for this.
