Beautiful, well appointed renovated school house sitting on 5 acres of land with access to a private river. Short drive to Hunter Ski Mountain.

The space

Beautiful, well appointed renovated school house sitting on 5 acres of land with access to a private river.

You can hide out on this lovely property, or drive a short distance in any direction for antiquing, hiking, skiing and exploring.

There is a queen bed, a double bed and a couch.

Swimming in the river, sun baking, and walking are all recommended in summer. The area is very quiet, and you can feel completely in the country, yet just a few miles from so much else. There are many activities on offer such as golf, tennis, mini golf, go carting, hunter zip line, and more.

Pick up your groceries before you arrive and just relax, or venture out to enjoy someone else's cooking (a number of excellent choices at reasonable prices, I made some recommendations in the airbnb guide book). Endless other things to do.

The house is centrally located, roughly 6 miles from exit 20 NYS Thruway, minutes from HITS horse riding facility. 20 mins from Woodstock; 30 mins from Hudson, 15 mins to Saugerties and Catskill towns.

There is a bus from the city Trailways to Palenville stop is the best way on public transport, then a taxi from there is possible. There is also the Amtrak train to Hudson (this is 30min drive from the house)

Wireless router in the house next door provides strong internet access. Login details in the house manual on the airbnb listing.

Verizon cell coverage is generally better than ATT in this area.

Guest access

Welcome to walk down the property to access the roughly 4 acres of mowed grass land and swim in the river which is down the hill.. follow the path.

Interaction with guests

You will be on your own, although myself or assistant should be available if you need anything.

Although the school house shares the property with the main house, you won't find any loss of privacy or quiet. I may not be around although if I am, will respect your privacy.

Other things to note

There is a new TV in the house that has an Apple TV connected to it. There is also a stereo for playing music.

There is a Nescafe Nespresso Coffee machine in the house. You will need to bring your own coffee pods for this.

The property and schoolhouse are pinterest worthy, but more importantly, it is quiet, restful location to get away from life's stressors.

What a magic woodland fairyhouse! We loved our time there and left feeling restored and regenerated. The private river/creek on the property made the weekend. Nicolas was incredibly communicative, flexible, and easy to book with. We met him on the street when we were out for a walk - super nice guy. You can tell he puts a lot of thought and intention into curating his spaces. The main house is within sightline but the Schoolhouse still felt extremely serene and quiet, which is what we were looking for. We'll be back.

We loved our stay in the one-bedroom schoolhouse house. It was beautifully done on the inside, almost magazine ready. Extremely comfortable beds. Great little deck for barbecuing and the access to the river a big bonus.

We really enjoyed the stay with our dogs at the Schoolhouse. Beautiful rural setting with lots of close opportunities to get out and enjoy nature. The check-in was easy, the place was very clean and comfortable, and Nicolas's shopping and dining recommendations were spot on!
