About this listing
The loft is located in the cozy artsy hamlet of Chichester. We are less than 2 miles from Sweet Sues, above Chichester Yoga and 15 minutes from both Hunter Mountain and Belleayre. The loft is used by weekenders and retreaters alike.
Take over the loft and go snow boarding or hiking or simply gather with your friends for a weekend of cooking and relaxing. It's sunny, has a new kitchen and bath and has a very homey and warm feeling. All the bedrooms are spacious and private. The smallest bedroom overlooks a water fall which makes up for the size. Across the street are thousands of acres to hike and snow shoe. 15 minutes in either direction you can be at Hunter or Bellayere Mountain. You are also just 18 miles to Woodstock.
This is a loft, not a house. The yard and waterfront are for your exclusive use and no other retreats happen during your stay. You are not sharing the loft with any other guests. There are yoga classes in the studio on the first floor. Please see Chichester Yoga's site for details.
You can eat out of the organic creekside garden in season. The creek is crystal clear in the summer and great for cooling off. In the winter it's a favorite of kids as they explore the ice formations. The creek front is private on both sides and stunning all year. The swimming hole is for your exclusive use.
On the first floor are the best yoga classes around. Megan opened Chichester Yoga in 2006 after traveling around the world teaching and loves being based here.
On Saturdays, the post office is open for 4 hours. It is also on the first floor. (Think country post office, not 42nd street.) But none the less, it's good to know that the building is mixed use. No one however, shares the loft, the entrance or the land.
Chichester is an artists hamlet that is charming and beautiful. If you want to go out locally, Tavern 214 is less than a mile away for dinner or drinks. Peekamoose Tap Room is less than 10 minutes and Sweet Sues, just 2 minutes.
Chichester Yoga, the area's most sought after studio, is on the first floor. You will love not having to get in the car/subway to take class or get a massage.
For those of you without a car, transportation from the bus stop in Phoenicia can be arranged.
Massage for guests staying at the loft is discounted to 90/75 minutes and can be done in your room or in the studio. We are proud to have Hudson Valley's most sought after healers on staff and available for your stay on request.

Interaction with Guests
Only at check in and check out.
The neighborhood is an artists hamlet. It's a great place to unwind from the city, get rest and still have access to great restaurants in Woodstock. Or the local favorite, Peekamoose.
The bus runs from Grand Central to Phoenicia but a car is recommended for those of you not on retreat.
Other Things to Note
If you are looking for a large space that feels great, this is a terrific option. You never have to get in the car for hiking, yoga, swimming or massage. We cater to groups of up to 15 but recommend 10 max if you want a relaxed feel. We tend to rent to people who are active and like the outdoors. And while the place is in great shape and spotless, with new a new (IKEA) kitchen and bathroom, this is not the The Four Seasons. (which we love too!) Let us know how we can help set up your time here so that you get the best the area has to offer.
In the spring and summer trash must be left in the basement in the can. Nothing outside.
32 degrees and below, leave either the kitchen sink or the bathroom sink on at all times.
Put all perishable leftovers in the trash when you leave.
Leave the sheets on the beds and load/run the dishwasher at checkout.
Turn heat down to 65 when you are leaving for the day and to 60 when you check out.
Leave me a note if anything gets broken.
Have a great time!
