The space

So its a garret, and its above the garage and you have to walk by the gardening tools and up a flight of stairs, but...Its minutes to the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park...Four miles to High Falls and Stone Ridge, the High Falls Food Co-op, restaurants (The Egg's Nest, The Kitchenette, or vegetarian @ The Rosendale Cafe), little shops (check out vintage country furniture and other wares @ "Downtown" in Accord from 12-5 on weekends), antique stores, three fabulous family-run farm stands, and a three season flea market (in High Falls on Sundays from April thru October)...Three minute stroll down to private Rondout Creek access...Two minutes to scrumptious views of the ridge from the lawn...AND its cheap, beautiful, very friendly and private at the same time... Has a mini kitchenette, bath with shower (no tub), and most things you might need! The Garret is about 500 square feet of open living space with WIFI, a king size bed, Moroccan carpet, pickled pine floors, lofted ceiling, AC, warm in winter, big comfy velvet covered couch, just a few pots and pans and utensils, two burner stove (no oven), under the counter fridge, and big wall of windows with view of Minnewaska in winter. All this on 30 acres minutes from hiking/climbing/biking in the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park.
We are located just 90 miles from the George Washington Bridge in NYC. Off exit 18/New Paltz on the New York State thruway, it is a twenty minute scenic drive over the Shawangunk Ridge, just past the famous Mohonk Mountain House and trailheads for the Mohonk Preserve.
Although we do definitely offer one night stays, it is for last minute availability or mid-week stays mostly (Sunday through Thursday). Generally we like a two night minimum stay on the weekend and for some holidays, three nights. Contact us and we would be happy to see what will work!
We have three other rentals which might interest you! On this property but in another building is The West Wing, an 850 square foot apartment for two, no kitchen, but lots of comfort and style. Located just .6 miles down the road, (as seen on the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) map below as Catherine Harnden House) and across the creek, we rent out two houses, the 1840 Carriage House and the 1840 Greek Revival, both on the same 10 acres.

The Garrett is beautiful and stylish. Quiet and clean. A great location far enough from town but not to far removed from food , shops and farms. You can't go wrong.

This is a wonderful spacious loft-like studio with very large windows, high ceilings and a small but well equipped kitchen and a king sized bed. Sterrett was very helpful and prompt in all communications. It's a wonderful location and we especially liked that we could bring our dog. It is definitely one of the best Airbnb's we've stayed in. Actually, my husband says it's the best Airbnb he's stayed in. (I once stayed in a glorious Airbnb in Venice with a gorgeous walled garden that would be nearly impossible to top.) Because of the high ceilings there is a flight of stairs to the studio which was not a problem for us but could be if you've got bad knees. The bed is a king size futon topped with memory foam which my husband found very comfortable but which my back didn't do well with---though definitely not something that would stop me from coming back! This is a wonderful place to stay in Ulster county.

A peaceful and rejuvenating retreat from the city 10/10. Will return to work at least five percent happier.

Everything was just lovely. Beautiful, immaculate, charming space for our short visit to the area and the welcome email with local restaurant suggestions was much appreciated. I hope to have the chance to stay here again one day!

Enormous, beautifully decorated, sparkling clean. More than just a place to sleep, you will want to make time just to enjoy this beautiful room and property. Ideally located for exploring the beautiful Catskills area. Vegetarians, try The Spy in High Falls for their famous tofu wings – half price on Wednesdays!
