Cheer and Charm

Optimistic and energetic, this cabin retreat in New York’s idyllic Hudson Valley was renovated with joy by its owner and her family and friends. 

Tucked away in the Catskills, the dwelling rests on a hillside overlooking wooded terrain. With glass sliding doors in both the living room and dining room, you’ll be treated to expansive views of the peaceful landscape.

Peppy, eclectic interiors with high ceilings are a bit English country house and a bit Palm Beach. We love the sun-filled dining room with its banana leaf wallpaper, Spanish tiles and pomegranate pink rug. The home also has a wood burning stove.

Outdoors, you might take a dip in the salt-water heated in-ground pool, or do some yoga on the sizable 2,000 square foot deck overlooking the forest. There is also a full-size tennis court with a basketball hoop and a large BBQ grill.

Step off the deck, and you’ll be in a wonderland for hiking, fishing and exploring (15.5 acres to be exact). 

Just two hours away from New York City, you could be sinking into an Adirondack chair around the fire-pit with friends, a forest of pines purifying your every cell. Or taking your own artist’s retreat in Hudson Valley, historically a magnet for writers, painters and craftspeople.

Description

This two-bedroom vacation rental in Hudson Valley features one full bathroom and a loft sleeping space with one full-size bed. There is a well-appointed kitchen, but please note there is no dishwasher. 

SECLUSION, NATURE AND CULINARY GEMS

Located only two hours from New York City and twenty minutes to Woodstock, the cabin is located on a quiet road, on a private driveway, within the budding town of Kerhonkson (also known as Kerhampton).

Nature enthusiasts should consider the 4.6 mile Overlook Mountain trail, one of best spots in the Catskills, or the Big Deep, a semi-secret swimming hole near the home, both near the home.

A bit farther out, there is Minnewaska State Park, a 22,275-acre preserve located on the Shawangunk Ridge, beloved for its picnicking, hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing and swimming. Other great day and nature trips are Woodstock Farm Sanctuary and Esopus Creek.

Devoted art lovers from New York City have surely made the pilgrimage to Storm King Art Center, an open-air museum located in Mountainville with a fantastic collection of contemporary outdoor sculptures. Also worth a visit is Opus 40, a large environmental sculpture in Saugerties, on over 6.5 acres of bluestone quarry.

To get a taste of the local art and farm community, visit the Woodstock flea market (every Saturday and Sunday) or the Woodstock Farm Festival (Wednesdays only).

Woodstock and Hudson Valley are also attracting exceptional culinary and hospitality talent these days. A few of the owner’s favorites are Shindig, Cucina and Phoenicia Diner. 

LOCATION 

Kerhonkson, New York. Nearest airport: LaGuardia Airport (101 miles) or JFK International (113 miles) 

BEST TIME TO VISIT: July through October for the best weather and outdoor activities. Fall foliage spotters like to come in September or October, while hiking is also great in the spring.

House Rules

ARRIVAL: Upon entrance please go through the house and report any damages within two hours of arrival. If there is no report of any damage, the tenant assumes responsibility for damages incurred during the rental period. Furniture, electronics, and artwork are not to be moved. Premises left dirtier than what is considered normal will result in additional cleaning costs. I expect guests to leave the house in the same condition it was received.

SMOKING -Please no smoking in the house. Smoking in the front of the house or deck is permitted. Please do not leave any cigarette butts on the property. A garbage pail has been provided on the outside deck for disposal of cigarette butts. Smoking inside the house results in the loss of the entire Security Deposit. There is a $50 charge for leaving cigarette butts on the property.

KEYS: We provide two sets of keys. Both keys must be returned to the lockbox at the end of your stay. Lockbox combination will be given on the day of your arrival. There is a $50 charge for lost keys.

WOOD BURNING STOVE: Open the door of the wood burning stove and create a fire-bed. Place firelighters and wood on the fire-bed. Keep the doors closed. There are long matches by the fireplace along with fire starter wood chips. Please remember to clean up after yourself! Keeping the area clean is key for your own safety. If you have any questions contact owner or property manager.

FIRE PIT: remember to put out all fires after use.

ALARM SYSTEM: Please do not unplug the alarm system. The alarm is off so do not worry about it going off. However, unplugging it puts the system out of whack.

BATHROOM
The house runs on a septic system. Please dispose of all baby wipes, paper towels sanitary products, and food scraps in the garbage instead of in the toilets. The bathroom is equipped with disposable sanitary bags.

POOL: There is a fence around the pool for child safety. Please note that all members of the guest party most sign the pool waiver. Please, please do not touch the pool equipment besides the pool heater. I understand if you have a pool or know how to operate a pool. However, I have a local maintenance person. If for any reason, the pool is not operating properly, please contact me right away.

Renters are charged propane rates for heating the pool. Please only turn on the pool heater when in use. Remember to shut off the pool heater.

How to operate pool heater: The heater is the large square box labeled: Hayward. Press the mode button until it lands on “Pool.” Please give it 15 minutes to get started. You will know it’s running once the heat comes out of the box. Remember guests are charged current propane rate to heat the pool. Please be mindful of the usage of the pool heater. When not in use, please turn the heater off. Also, keep in mind that the pool will stay heated once you reach the desired temperature. If there are any issues, please notify the owner immediately.

Cleaning Pool Skimmer Basket: the skimmer basket is located at the side of the pool (white circular object). Remove the access hatch and empty the basket. The skimmer should be cleaned daily. You will find leaves, debris and etc in there. Keeping it clean helps maintain the pool’s filter system. Easy and quick.

Deck light: there is a switch on the deck to the right of the pool equipment. Turn on for strip lights. The switch for the large deck light is inside the house by the front door.

Please note: No Children 16 and younger are allowed to use the pool unless an adult is present. No impaired individual allowed in the pool area. All pool toys must be removed from the pool area after use and return to storage. There is a basket by the living room door with towels. Please do not sit on the sofa wet ☺

If there are any issues or concerns regarding the pool, please contact the owner.

AIR CONDITIONER: The large A/C in the living cools the entire cabin. There is a light switch by the bookshelf. Please turn on and off as needed.
