Casa Minnewaska is a newly renovated modern rustic hillside home located on the border of 22,000 acres of untouched wilderness. Views of the Catskills and a long list of outdoor activities right in the backyard: climbing, fishing, hiking, swimming, skiing, snowboarding, snow shoeing, etc. And if you just want to stay at home you can relax in the hot tub, hang out on the deck or by the fireplace.
Before booking, please be aware of our additional fees for guests over 4 to cover maintenance, cleaning and upkeep on the property.
Up to 2 dogs are allowed for your stay, but we do charge a fee given additional cleaning and maintenance on the home.
Only 2 hours from NYC, Casa Minnewaska is a bright 3BR house with wraparound deck sitting on 5 acres of gorgeous green property. Our house is perfect for any weekend getaway or vacation with family and friends. Year-round, guests can soak in the outdoor hot tub, stargaze from the porch and roast marshmallows around our secluded fire-pit with mountain views of the Catskills. You can walk through our backyard straight into Minnewaska State Park, home to hundreds of trails for hiking and some of the best climbing in the northeast. Spend the summer weekends, camping, hiking and grilling outside. During winter, enjoy nearby winter hiking, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing.
We’re also a quick 20 min to the Shawangunk Mountains (or, the “Gunks”), famous among rock climbers—home to waterfalls like Verkeerderkill, Awosting, Buttermilk and VerNooykill. If fishing is your thing just walk down the driveway to the Rondout creek.
Two floors, 3 bedrooms—downstairs we have a full kitchen (and dishwasher!) and living room with Sonos speakers and a working woodstove.The bedroom downstairs has 2 full-size beds and two bedrooms upstairs—one with a queen and the other with king with ensuite bathroom and private balcony. Guests will find the home stocked with all the necessary amenities including towels, linens, and kitchen basics as well as toiletries. Forget something? Wal-Mart is 5 minutes away and you have quick access to a number of restaurants in Kerhonkson, Accord, High Falls, Stone Ridge, and Rosendale. New Paltz is just 25 minutes away.
There is excellent cell phone service throughout the entire property.
Please understand that the house is not infant-proof. There are sharp edges, corners, and many other things that could be dangerous for an infant. If bringing an infant, you agree to take full responsibility and liability should anything happen.
Guests can access the entire home.
We are just a phone call or text message away and can provide recommendations or help if needed.
Casa Minnewaska is on the border of 22,000 acres of untouched wilderness. Climbing, fishing, hiking, swimming, and skiing are all practically on the doorstep. The house is secluded on a backroad, but not far by car from New Paltz and Kingston.
Just 2 hours from New York City. A car is highly recommended. There is a bus from NYC Port Authority Pine Hill Trailways running about once an hour, $40 per person round trip to New Paltz. From there you can take a taxi, which would be about $25 each way. This is great for friends who do not have a car.
Note: All Holiday weekends require a 3-night minimum to book. Due to higher demand and costs, we are unable to accommodate the shorter stay on these dates.
