Private, inexpensive, and in an extraordinary setting and location! Cream of the Hudson Valley, and setup especially for guests!
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 (website 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.
This is a non-smoking rental.
Pets are allowed with prior consent only, and must be truly people friendly with excellent indoor manners. No jumping on the furniture with muddy paws or territorial marking behavior please! We also ask that dogs not be allowed to run in the garden beds. Please pick up after your dog in the areas immediately around the buildings.
We ask that guests leave dishes washed and things left in a respectful order. No extra cleaning required, just relax!
Swimming in the creek, or wading is at your own risk. At certain times and in certain spots, there can be a surprisingly strong current, even in shallow depths. No other visitors are allowed on the property except those for whom the original reservation was made, without consent directly from the owner.
Please respect the retreat atmosphere of this country rental.
My second stay at the Garret was just as lovely as the first! Sterrett does such a fabulous job running this guest house - it really is seamless from start to finish. The garret itself is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean - perfect for an escape from the city. Thanks again!!
Sterrett's place is terrific! Clean; professionally run; a beautiful property in a beautiful part of New York State.
Sterrett and the Garret were so wonderful! The space was perfect and exactly as described. Sterrett was very accommodating and worked with us when we had an earlier arrival time then planned, which was very much appreciated. We were able to bring the dog which was a huge deal for us, so that is a big extra plus. The bed was comfy and the kitchenette had everything we needed. The views were incredible and the house is on such a wonderful piece of land. The place was perfect and we will definitely be coming back again!
All the 5 star reviews are 100% accurate. The Garret is amazing and better than any hotel you could find for that price. The room is absolutely beautiful and spacious, the bed is comfy and everything is sooo clean. I can't say enough wonderful things about the garret and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in this area. Thank you Sterrett for the warm welcome. We will definitely be back if we are ever in the area again!
The Garret was lovely and exactly how it was shown and described in the listing. The room was very spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. Sterrett was very accommodating to our schedule and very helpful with recommendations and suggestions for things to do and check out in the area. We hope to go back and stay at the Garrett again in the future!
Great apartment. Nice light and very comfortable bed. Close to town, but feels far away :)
Sterrett was incredibly welcoming and made us feel right at home. The Garret is beautiful. Sterrett has thought of everything a guest would need to be incredibly comfortable. We really loved it there!

I am first of all a painter but have found myself over the years building and renovating, something I truly enjoy. My husband is a writer and also director of a graduate program in NYC. We made the critical decision years ago to move to the Hudson Valley in order to have the space we needed for our large library, painting studio, and land for a vegetable garden and fruit trees.
