We’re excited to offer Kin House, a secluded and convenient, spacious 2,600 sq ft getaway for groups of friends and families - all are welcome to enjoy our beautiful property. It's the perfect retreat to disconnect and recharge. Enjoy the fully stocked kitchen, coffee bar, serene yard and porch, hot tub, and thoughtful amenities, and the best outdoor attractions, towns, farms, & restaurants all mins away.

Check GetawayUpstate on IG for more photos and local recommendations.

The space
The 2 acres of property is close to hiking and restaurants and less than 2 hours from NYC. An indoor wood-burning fireplace, hot tub, large porch, BBQ, and outdoor fire pit are just some of the amenities that await you.

The best hiking and biking in Hudson Valley, Minnewaska, Mohonk, The Gunks, and Rail Trail Kerhonkson are minutes away.

Kin House is the perfect peaceful home base from which to easily visit the best Hudson Valley towns - New Paltz and Stone Ridge (15-20 mins) and Saugerties, Kingston, and Woodstock (45 mins). There are so many places to visit that are a gorgeous and short 5-20 min drive.

Kin House sits in the middle of a dead-end - so you'll enjoy peace and privacy, with a very limited number of cars passing by.

Looking to do lots of home cooking? Kin House provides all the basics (oil, salt & pepper, etc) and cooking tools (great knives, pots, and pans) you might need. Plus there are tons of local markets with fresh, local, and organic produce, meat, and dairy products.

Looking for a work-cation? Our house has desks in 3 of the bedrooms plus a dedicated "zoom room" and fast wifi. Send emails from the porch while you BBQ lunch or take conference calls from the balcony while you drink your morning coffee.

Love a hot tub? Our outdoor hot tub fits 6 people and even has built-in cup holders. It's conveniently located steps from the back porch.

Into fitness? We have a dedicated ~200 sq ft gym room complete with gym flooring, yoga and workout mats, free weights from 3-30 lbs, and more.

Going skiing? Kin House is nearby both Holiday Mountain (~30 mins) and Hunter Mountain (~50) and is the perfect post-ski day retreat for groups.

Gone green? We have a NEMA 1450 electric vehicle charger, a super-fast EV charger serving up 35 miles an hour, and have made other thoughtful choices to make Kin House a sustainable short-term rental.

Have kids or teens? We have games and fun activities for a range of kids (and adults!). Kin House is the perfect family retreat.

Have pets / dogs you want to bring? We provide: a crate, 3 ceramic bowls, a couch cover for each couch, pet specific towels, and a fence for the deck. We allow up to 4 pets. It is $50 per pet per night up to $150 per pet max (for example, if you have one pet and stay 5 nights it will only be $150).

Worried you might forget things? Less than 10 minutes away is a Stewart’s grocery store and a Wal-Mart Super Center open daily 6am-11pm. Enjoy being surrounded by nature, along with everything you might need just a short distance away.

— Sleeping Arrangements —
There are 4 bedrooms, 3 kings and 1 queen.

There is also a full sized futon in “The Zoom Room”/library on the 3rd floor, to which there are doors you can close.

In the green room there is a chair that unfolds into a small bed that’s good for a kid / teen.

We provide full sheets that can be used for the futon, green room chair, or they can be used to sleep on the couch in the den, which is quite large.

Where you’ll be

Kerhonkson, New York, United States

Kin House is located in a quiet area where the neighbors are spread out, and it's essentially a dead-end road with very few cars passing through. It's not so secluded that it's horror movie scary though - the perfect balance!

I grew up in New York and am an entrepreneur and adjunct professor. I enjoy hiking, my cats, & indoor gardening. I love exploring my neighborhood of 10+ years, Astoria (where I started as an Airbnb host) and the Hudson Valley/Catskills, my second home.

My first AirBnB stay was in a treehouse in Santa Cruz.
