I am a social worker from New York City who has been coming up to New Paltz to hike, apple pick, and leaf peep for many years. I am turning 40 on November 1st and wanted to do something special. Renting a big house with a lovely deck in the middle of the village seemd like the perfect thing. My friends and I are all working professionals, which is why we will have 5 people there on Saturday night, but only 3 for Sunday and Monday nights. We are not big partiers and we aren't into blaring music and making a lot of noise, we just want a nice place to hang out, drink some wine, and use as a base to go hiking, etc. I am happy to answer any other questions you may have, so feel free to call me.
