Short-term (two week) vacation rental available from Friday, July 19 to Friday, August 2, for $2000 plus a $200 cleaning fee.
This 2 bed 1 bath farmhouse, between the Catskills and the Shawangunk mountains on a quiet country road, bordering a gently babbling creek, is under two hours from NYC. Set on 1.5 acres and surrounded by over 20 acres of woods and the only neighbors in sight are the horses that graze just up the road. This is the perfect destination to commune with nature and relax in peace and quiet.

The house has been a labor of love over the last few years with new hardwood floors, a large new deck, a new roof, exterior and lot of other details. It has two bedrooms with queen size beds, an eat-in kitchen (fully equipped with a new electric stove, dishwasher, microwave, blender, juicer, food processor, etc), and one bathroom with a bathtub/shower. The spacious living room has a majestic stone fire place, rustic barn wood walls. It's connected to a newly finished sitting room with a 9 foot accordion door that fully opens to merge the interior with the outdoors, with a large, two-tier deck to enjoy the secluded surroundings full of wildflowers, dozens of species of birds, deer, occasional foxes, and in the right seasons lighting bugs or the autumn leaves. Along the north side of the property runs the Good Beerkill Creek, which is stocked with trout during the spring/summer season. A path leads from the house to Adirondack chairs perched above the creek, with stone steps leading down to it.

Ellenville is just under a two hour drive from NYC, at the southern end of the Catskills and west of the Shawangunk mountains. Though situated at a 1000 ft elevation the house just a ten minute drive from downtown. Ellenville is an up-and-coming town, recently written up in the New York Times, with a lot going on, including a longstanding theater company, farmers markets and street fairs, a growing arts community, a private jazz club, restaurants (mexican, jamaican, italian, dominican, pizza, pub, etc.) as well as two good supermarkets, a Walmart and Ellenville regional hospital. It's a short drive to Minnewaska state Park, the Mohonk Preserve and many great spots for hiking, swimming, skiing, biking, or even hang gliding or flying lessons. Charming nearby towns Stone Ridge, Kerhonkson, Accord, Mountaindale and Livingston Manor (all less than 30 mins away) have a lot to offer and bigger towns like Kingston, New Paltz, Woodstock are under an hour away.
So there's plenty to do, or you can do nothing but relax on the hammock or out on the deck, in the sun or shade, listening to the sound of the birds and the babbling creek, watching deer stroll by...

Guests have access to all of the first floor living space. The basem*nt, garage and attic are off limits, but access to the laundry can be provided upon request for longer stays. The seat in the sitting room can be turned in to a single bed for one additional guest, if desired please let us know and we can provide bedding for it. Please be gentle if using the piano, and please don't allow children to bang on it, it can be tuned upon request for a fee. No smoking and no parties are allowed in the house.

The property borders a neighbor's horse ranch and we ask you to admire their beautiful but sensitive horses from a respectful distance. We also ask you to keep a respectful volume for the other neighbors as well. Smoking is not allowed on the premises. If using the backyard fire pit please have water handy to extinguish it and please check the weather beforehand for heavy winds.

Utilities included in the rental price are - electric, water, internet, garbage pick-up
please note - heating oil is not included as it can fluctuate a lot and prices have been changing a lot over the past few years. You can set up your own oil delivery, or otherwise it will automatically be delivered and the cost will be taken out of your security deposit. The thermostat must be kept at 55 minimum to keep the pipes from freezing.

No smoking is allowed inside the house. There is parking available, a long drive way that can accommodate up to six cars. Feel free to contact me about shorter stays. There is a $200 cleaning fee (for any stay) and a fully refundable security deposit of $1000 (the cleaning fee will be taken from that, and the remainder will be returned).

Please write me a short note about yourself and your interest in renting. I ask that you share a public profile with me, either facebook, linked in, instagram, airbnb profile, personal website, credit report or other links and that we have an introductory chat on zoom or facetime beforehand. Afterwards I'll send a rental agreement and deposit should be made to secure the rental.

Pets may be allowed on a case by case basis, but an additonal security deposit of $1500 will be asked to protect furniture and property from damage. An additional $150 deep cleaning fee is also required.
