Our guest house sits about 30 yards from our house on 1.29 acres of hilly, wooded land full of deer and birds. The guest house is one room with a full bath (bath and shower) and an alcove kitchenette. Single bed, desk, views of woods, Wifi, large closet, garage parking. An additional single bed can be added. I also have a 20' by 30' photo studio in the main house that can be rented for an additional fee. Photos are included at the end of my photo stream.

House Rules

* No smoking inside please...
* You accept that the apartment is furnished with a single bed (good mattress, not futon) UNLESS you inform us that you would like the additional cot (portable frame, good mattress) moved in. We can put the cot next to the single bed (or not), which is almost like a double bed!
* If you bring a dog please clean up after him and have him sleep on something other than the coverlet (on sheets is ok). Dog hair sticks to those coverlets like crazy, even after they've been washed.
* You can check in after 4pm; check out time is noon.
* You agree to be kind to my septic system. A septic system means I have underground pipes emptying into a septic tank on my property. Since it's on my property, I have to maintain it and replace it if it breaks down. It's very old and I want it to last many more years. Please do not put anything other than paper in it (except for the obvious.) That means no paper towels, wipes, tampax, and droppings from a cat litter box as they will probably contain some gravel.
* Please talk to me if you have a problem. Solutions CAN be found...

If you're looking for a different type of lodging, Stephanie 's place is for you. Though small (ideal for one person, but can fit two), her guest cottage provides comfortable facilities in a woodsy setting, with trees all around you. Cooking is a little tight--there's a two burner stove, with a small refrigerator, and sink. There is one bed, but Stephanie brought in a second one, both of which were very comfortable. The location is very convenient, less than half a mile from Route 9W with stores and restaurants. It is five minutes from the Palisades Interstate Parkway, with easy access to New York City, any many other destinations. Definitely worth your time.

Stephanie's place was the perfect spot for a quiet weekend away from the hectic work life of the city. Her bookshelf rivals the best collections out there. The maple trees in the woods provide a sonic escape, especially as the rain falls and the winds rustle the leaves. The birds sing and the air is sweet. It's a lovely, modest spot of you need solitude. Car required.

This is the perfect spot to get away and be in the woods and still be near things. Perfect for a writing retreat and close to amazing parks and hiking. The place has everything you might need: small fridge, 2 burner stove, fast internet. Stephanie was a terrific host and check in and out was a breeze. I loved snuggling into this place and would definitely stay here again.

I needed a place to get away from the chaos of the City to clear my head for a few days and this place did the trick. A quaint 1 bedroom studio style space with a little kitchenette to cook a simple meal (veggie burgers, some oatmeal and scrambled eggs), a coffee maker for my caffeine fix and a little fridge to keep my water cold. The walk down to the little creek/stream on the property was a steep decline but manageable. I didn't go because it was very humid and I didn't want to bear with the heat to sit by the water. Working and reading at the desk was great because you're surrounded by windows and greenery. The only downside is there isn't an A/C and I knew this going into my stay but unfortunately it was one of the hottest summers of the year. Not the hosts fault but a small A/C would be nice for the summer months. I would stay here again! PS - Stephanie is great at communication and was very responsive to my questions. Thanks Stephanie!

Thanks for the very nice review, Stephen. Yes, I have considered adding AC but a window AC would block the light and view which is one of my assets. If summers continue to be so miserable I may go in the freestanding AC direction. You still have to block some light but a lot less than with a window AC

I was in Stony Point for a retreat at the Stony Point Center and wanted a private space for myself. This was perfect - quiet and lovely, and very close. It had everything I needed.

This is a Great place if your looking for peace and quiet and country living at it's best. Yet, close enough to all the conveniences of a big town. I highly reccomend staying there.

My husband and I are hard-working editor/writers (is there any other kind these days?) and former long-time residents of New York City. We miss the city a bit but love the amount of SPACE we have out here. We're both also big nature enthusiasts so we like waking up to bird song and the wind in the trees. Nature would not be complete, however, without lots of NFL and NBA TV. If you ever want to talk Knicks Stephanie is your ticket. Given up on the Knicks? Bill, a former Brooklynite, still has high hopes for the Nets.
