Perks for the Parents

This modern country retreat, hidden away in 5 acres of woodland, is peaceful and quiet but is minutes from great hiking trails, farm stands, orchards, breweries and shopping. It sleeps up to 7. There’s a full kitchen filled with every type of kitchen gadget imaginable and a family-sized dining area. The wraparound top deck is great for kicking back on the outside lounge or for enjoying al fresco meals together. The house comes with indoor and outdoor speakers and a portable iPod speaker for use on the bottom deck.

Why Kids Love it

This is a great place for kids to be free-range and explore the surrounding nature and woods, making up games and letting their imagination run wild. An open floor plan inside gives kids space to play. There are plenty of outdoor pursuits in the area including swimming or kayaking on the nearby Lake Minnewaska. Meanwhile, Kelder’s Farm is 10 minutes’ drive where kids can bounce on a large jumping pillow, take a hay ride and have fun at the petting zoo and corn maze in the fall. Child gates can be set up at the top and bottom of the internal staircase.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. Safety notes: there is a steep staircase inside the house and the top deck is high off the ground with wire side railings around it so young children should be carefully supervised. There is a fireplace and some sharp corners. The house is on a dirt road and the driveway is steep – you don't need 4-wheel drive in the summer but it is recommended in the winter (there is someone that plows). Please note that there are no children’s toys or books here so it’s best to pack some. There’s no grassy area as the house is in the woods. The internet and TV are both satellite, which means that in inclement weather they can both stop working and the Wi-Fi is not good for streaming or downloading. There is virtually no cell phone service. There is no air conditioning or microwave.

About the Location

This residence is located in Kerhonkson in the Hudson Valley / Catskills, NY state. The property is secluded in the woods with old logging trails you can walk and has views from the deck of the Shawangunk Ridge. There is a hiking trailhead 15 minutes away by car. Lake Minnewaska State Park is just 15 minutes away where in the summer you can hike, bike or swim and in the winter, you can hike or snow-shoe. Ski trails are less than an hour away. The house is surrounded by farms and apple picking is great fun in the fall. Get here in approximately 2 hrs, 20 mins from New York City, depending on traffic.

Accommodation Details

This residence has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on 2 floors and sleeps up to 4 in beds. The upstairs features the main living area with a loft-like open room with sliding doors on either side that fill the space with light and views of the ridge.

Style Notes

Upscale, stylish bolt-hole in the woods. This pre-fab home, designed by the architects of the original Dwell home, has been featured on Amazing Vacation Homes, Nightline on a special on pre-fab homes, in the Walker Art Museum and the cover of Pre-Fab Now. It’s characterized by clean architectural lines with a modern interior and pops of color. The upstairs main room is bathed in light from the vast doors that slide open to reveal the forest, so that it feels as if you are staying in a treehouse. There are no curtains in the bedroom – you don’t need them. We love the privacy here where you can truly escape the world, the hand-crafted steel fireplace, and the spacious deck that’s perfect for entertaining.
