Perks for the Parents

This serene mountain retreat in upstate New York is surrounded by hiking trails and woodlands, in the heart of upscale Cragsmoor. It sleeps 9 adults + 3 kids. This spacious family home is large enough to share with friends or for multi-generational families. It’s just minutes from various state parks and forests, apple and pumpkin orchards, and farm land - the perfect place for a rural retreat with easy access to ski resorts in winter, as well as parks and lakes in the summer. It’s also close enough to the city for families who want to try out the cultural hotspots or sights of NYC (around 1 hour, 45 minutes’ drive).

Why Kids Love it

This family-friendly home is perfect for kids aged 3 and up. This is a quiet rural area with almost no traffic, so it’s totally safe for kids to run around outside and they’ll have plenty of space to play. The large backyard is perfect for spontaneous football or soccer games, and the den is ideal for cozy chill-out time. Older kids will love exploring the spectacular hiking trails nearby: check out Sam’s Point lake and waterfall. Sam’s Point (10 min drive) offers free snow shoeing lessons during winter. Further afield, the kids will love a trip to the SplashDown water park on the Hudson River (just under 1 hour away).

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5-7 days. Safety notes: the house is set over 3 floors without stair gates, so toddlers should be supervised at all times. The house comes with parking for 2 or 3 cars, plus a garage, and car rental is strongly recommended. The property comes with air conditioning, dishwasher, washer/dryer, pack-and-play and children’s dinnerware for little ones, housekeeping, TV and WiFi.

About the Location

The house is located in the exclusive hamlet of Cragsmoor, just 1 hour 45 minutes’ drive from the hustle and bustle of New York City (80 miles from the George Washington Bridge). The residents of Circle Road have exclusive access to a hiking trail, and it’s easy to access lots of beautiful hiking spots nearby: Sam's Point at Minnewaska, Shawangunk trail, and Old Stone Church overlook are all within a few minutes’ drive of the house. The town of Pine Bush (15 minutes’ drive) has a farmers market, supermarkets and a choice of eateries. Legoland New York is around half an hour away, as is the Holiday Mountain Ski Resort in Monticello, which offers winter ski and snow tubing, plus go-karting and mini golf in the summer. The town of Ellenville (10 minutes' drive) has great restaurants, Kelder's farm with kids' activities and is a premier hang gliding destination in NY. The closest international airports are in NYC and this area has no public transport so a car is essential.

Accommodation Details

This residence has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, set over 3 floors. Upstairs, the main guest bedroom has a queensize bed, the children’s room has a set of bunk beds and there is a full bathroom. On the main floor is another queen bedroom, which opens out to the deck. There is also a spacious Nordic farmhouse kitchen featuring a dining table (seating 8) that leads to a large living room with a modern wood burning fireplace and a full bathroom. This area links to a large deck which spans across the house, overlooking the tranquil treeline of the backyard. On the lower level is a 3rd queensize bedroom, another full bathroom, a den/play area with a TV, and the laundry room. For other sleeping options the hosts have 1 double sofabed, 1 single sofabed, and a travel crib for babies. The large open backyard offers plenty of room for building snowmen or sledding in the winter and playing ball or frisbee in the warmer months.

Style Notes

Scandinavian Chic. This beautiful home is light and airy, with sunlight streaming in from every room. There’s a strong mid-century style here, with statement pieces and contemporary art on the walls - creating a subtle mix of designer influence and minimalist charm. The muted palette on the walls is chic and pared back, with bright pops of color adding a welcoming and relaxing touch that’s perfect for guests of all ages. We love the vibrant Eames dining chairs, the elegant marbled tiling in the bathrooms, and the traditional white cladding on the exterior.

A New York - Upper East Side native for 20 years, Prachee is a mother of 4 year old twins who enjoys the three New York Rs reading, running and restaurants. Early this year she and her family were fortunate enough to acquire a weekend home that they fell in love with. She loves the light, the large backyard for her children to run around in, the private hiking trail, the quiet respite of Cragsmoor and the amazing hiking trails in town. The family feels they have stumbled on one of the best kept secrets in the Shawangunks and would like to share them with their guests.
