About This Listing
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.
We keep on coming back to Sterrett for good reason! This time we chose to stay in the Garrett, which is such a great value, a lovely spacious room with amazing light, and - key for us lazy bones - a little kitchenette so no need to leave premises for breakfast. Even a rainy weekend was a relaxing getaway for my wife and I. Highly recommended!
Immaculate, accommodating, meticulous. Sterrett's place is great and she is equally good at managing the check-in/-out process. Would definitely stay there again.
The Garret is an incredible retreat--very clean with high quality amenities: a well stocked kitchenette with everything you'd need for a little get away, a luxurious king size bed, and a really nice AC/heating unit.
The Garret is situated apart from the main house on really stunning grounds, and Sterrett is super helpful and accommodating.
This place was amazing...beautiful, clean and peaceful. Top of the line sheets and towels. Perfect little touches to make one feel at home and comfortable. The host was extremely accommodating. LOVED IT!!!
We had a wonderful experience staying at the garret! The space was perfect for my husband and I and our son. It was very clean and comfortable! The grounds are very nice too and you get a great view of the mohonk house which was really cool. Would definitely recommend this space if you're looking for a great location close to hiking and getting away from it all.

About the Host, Sterrett
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.
