About This Listing
This second story apartment feels deep in the trees yet it's in downtown Rosendale. Relax on the large, covered deck and soak in the beauty of the creek from almost every window. Light filled and comfortable. Come put your feet up.
This spacious yet cozy Rosendale retreat is an ideal location to relax and be inspired. Located at the end of a side street off Main Street, where the road T’s into a magnificent creek, this place has the feel of being tucked deep in the country, and also the convenience of being only a few minutes walk from downtown.
The two-bedroom apartment is the whole upper half of an old, remodeled Victorian, with two large bay windows, abundant light, a large, covered, creek-side deck, a slate-tiled, fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, extensive cookware, and large picture window over-looking the adjacent Rondout Creek. One bathroom with tub. There is one queen-sized bed, and a very comfortable (real mattress) full-sized futon in the second bedroom/ office.
Less than two hours north of New York City, Rosendale is a happening and progressive town. The bus stop to/from the city is a ten-minute walk from the house, so no car needed.

Interaction with Guests
I will check you in and be on my way. I'm available by phone if you need anything.
This is a small block with a great community of folks who live on it. In general, we are respectful of each other, getting quiet outside after 10, driving slow on our little road, being mindful of picking up trash, and ask you do the same. If you bring a dog, please scoop poop. There are extra plastic bags in the bottom white bin in the mudroom nook.
Trailways bus up from NYC is a short 10 minute walk away. Same location has local buses to Kingston and New Paltz several times a day. While you can get by without a car (several restaurants, grocery store, movie theatre, wine/ liquor store within walking distance, but if you're curious about exploring the Hudson River valley, you will be able to see a lot more if you have a car.
I generally keep my kitchen stocked with spices, oils, vinegars, sugar, flour, and other basics; you are welcome to use these items.
Your parking spot is on the creek-side of the apartment. Please park on a diagonal with nose pointing toward creek, aligned with neighbor's car(s).
Winter Note: On snowy days, street front parking is not permitted, nor is parking at the end of the dead-end. (Plow runs straight back to the creek.) Cars parked there during inclement weather may get towed. There is municipal parking behind The Big Cheese just up the street if your party has more than one car during inclement winter weather.
The apartment was on a small hill, second floor, with an outdoor patio overlooking a stream. When we arrived we found a hand-written note on the door welcoming us and a bowl of fresh fruit to snack on. There’s a feeling that we’ve just arrived home, but this is nothing like our home. It’s relaxing and peaceful – none of the rush of New York or sounds of distant sirens. A first impression that neatly captured the warmth and mood of the whole stay.
Such a relaxing place to get out of the city! The town this apartment is in is adorable: it's just a short walk from cute shops and restaurants. We especially recommend the 1850 Inn for a drink in the sunshine. Tanya was incredibly responsive and left us set up for everything we needed. It was so generous to have a fully equipped kitchen to work with when we cooked dinner! The apartment was clean and comfortable, with a lovely view of the creek. It was relatively quiet (for us Brooklynites). Great for a weekend getaway!
Tanya's place was perfect: cozy, clean and the perfect upstate NY retreat for our ski weekend! We hope to come back soon!
We enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean, cozy, charming, and comfortable. As we were staying in the winter, we appreciated that the place was well wind-proofed. The place is nicely located in the town, a short walk to the center of the town, near the restaurants and theater. Thanks, Tanya, for being flexible about our check-in time and being responsive to our few questions via email.
We enjoyed staying at Tanya's place, the apartment was nice and clean, as expected. The town, as well as the views from the apartment were just beautiful. There was a small hiccup at the beginning, no iron in the apartment, but Tanya addressed the issue quickly. We wish we had more time to spend in Rosendale.
Tanya was an excellent host, accessible and helpful in all the ways that we needed her to be. We found the apartment comfortable and organized. Being able to eat, sleep, and relax on the giant porch was a huge perk, as was being able to walk into town. Rosendale is super cute and great escape from city living.

About the Host, Tanya
I am a writer, writing mentor, and yoga teacher. I love to hike and be outdoors, spend time with good friends, cook and eat delicious food.
I spent many years traveling and living in Latin America, have lived out west, and surprised myself when I returned home to the Hudson Valley and now can't imagine leaving. I'm smitten, here; fell in love with the seasons, the landscape, the art and creativity, the great people.
