Private and cute as a button, this peaceful cottage packs a big punch while offering the ease of owning a compact, low-maintenance home. With a beautiful shared pond, a wrap-around deck, and Sundown Wild Forest – and Vernooy Falls – practically in your backyard, you have a front row seat to the incredible beauty this area has to offer.
Sunlight streams into the living and dining area, which the wood-burning stove will keep extra warm and cozy on those cool nights ahead. This space makes for a great landing spot after a fun day exploring the area!
The efficient galley kitchen is tucked away and offers plenty of storage. Large windows above the farmhouse sink perfectly frame the woods outside for that immersed-in-nature feeling even while cooking dinner.
The primary bedroom is at the back of the house and easily fits a queen-sized bed, and has a closet. A bonus room – currently used as a second sleeping space – has its own deck access and would also make a great home office!
Recent improvements include two new mini-split wall units (condenser is powerful enough to add a third unit for the main living space), painted and stained exterior and deck, new porch steps, new gutters, new leach field, and recent re-graveling of driveway. This home also has an 8x10 shed with a little porch perfect for wood storage, and could easily be transformed into a little writing or mediation space.
The cottage is super private and tucked away, but only 20 minutes from all the fun stuff right in Kerhonkson and Accord with so many choices for dining and shopping – think Mill & Main, Arrowood, Westwind Orchard, and Inness! In addition to Sundown Wild Forest, Minnewaska State Park, Mohonk Preserve, and the Ashokan Reservoir offer even more ways to enjoy nature with some of the best hiking, climbing, and swimming in the area. It’s a convenient 40 minutes to New Paltz, Kingston, and Woodstock, and a breezy 2 hours to the George Washington Bridge in NYC!
