"Beautiful volumes, perfectly furnished, all very pretty and practical: If I had a piece of land, I could see myself wanting to build a cabin just like this--or rather, ask David to build it!"
(excerpt of a guest's review)
Escape from New York to this ultra-modern--yet cozy--two-bedroom eco cottage in the heart of the Hudson Valley in the Village of Rosendale, NY. A car isn't even necessary. From NYC the express bus is 2 stops--1hr. 45 min. from Port Authority. The bus stop is a short walk or arrange a pick-up in advance.
I'm a green builder and furniture designer and I created this state-of-the-art cottage for guests. It's outfitted with unique materials, custom-designed furniture and lighting. The spectacular location is an outdoor enthusiast's dream with all indoor comforts--coupled with a short walk to civilization. On the property there are rock cliffs and amazing nature to admire. It's a 5-minute walk to the Mohonk Preserve--a place that The Nature Conservancy calls "one of the last great places on earth." Included in your stay are 2 free day passes to the Mohonk Preserve.
This cottage was hand-made to the highest "green" standards and my hope is to inspire you to live comfortably while conserving energy. Accommodations include two bedrooms with plush, queen-sized beds. The modern kitchen includes an induction cooktop and Advantium oven. The spa-like bathroom has a deep-soak tub. Access to the cottage is with a key-code lock and there's wireless internet, Apple TV, and good cell reception.
It's a 100-yard walk to the just-renovated, 1000' long, 150' high "Walkway over the Rondout." This historic former train trestle is part of the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail (WVRT) which accesses over 85 continuous miles of hiking, trail running, cycling, and cross-country skiing. Below this trestle is the nearest swimming hole. Enjoy a lovely and scenic riverside stroll to bars, restaurants, and historic movie theater on Main Street--a 5-minute walk from your door.
Come experience what it's like to have no indoor air pollution. The cottage was hand-made and finished with virtually zero VOC's (volatile organic compounds). An allergy sufferer's dream: there's no smoke, down feathers, or pet dander of any kind. Fresh, filtered air is exchanged constantly via a heat recovery ventilator (HRV).
Rosendale is centrally located to visit international art venues in Storm King and Beacon, The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) and other Hudson Valley farm-to-table meccas, and we're sandwiched between historic Kingston and New Paltz.
Rock climbing, ice climbing, and mtn bike guiding services are available. Massage can be scheduled in-house--or arrange a super-special day-spa visit at the Mohonk Mountain House.
Local occupancy tax is included.
Lets coordinate arrival times at least 24 hrs in advance. Check-in is typically after 3pm. I appreciate a one-hour window of arrival. Please keep in touch with changes to your ETA. I also ask guests to please call or text when about an hour away. I meet all guests and provide the key-code upon arrival.
Check-out time is noon.
Sorry, absolutely no pets and no smoking of any kind--including e-cigarettes. And please, no outdoor shoes in the house. It's wonderful to have the floors free of dirt and grit for all of the guests! Indoor shoes or socks are highly recommended.
IMPORTANT: The house has a septic system, therefore only human waste and toilet paper can be flushed. All baby wipes, tampons, dental floss, q-tips, etc. must be put in trash bin.
A lot of effort has gone into crafting this hand-made cottage. Enjoy it, but please take care not to damage walls, floors, or furniture. Wheeled suitcases can be particularly damaging to the to the wide-plank pine floors in the bedrooms. Please be gentle!
No additional overnight guests. Only the number of guests listed on the itinerary are permitted to stay. There is limited parking so if you plan to have daytime visitors, please let me know in advance of booking to make arrangements.
All children count as “additional guests." The interior and exterior were not designed with kids in-mind, so we'll need to have a conversation about them before booking. The modern interior has white walls, lots of hard edges, and very delicate finishes.
Please no eating on the sofa. Dry-cleaning charges may apply for stains.
Please do not rearrange or move furniture--as you are likely to break or scratch something.
Kindly refrain from frying bacon (as delicious as it is). Not only is the grease a problem, but the odor can linger long after you depart.
There will be a slight learning curve to the appliances. This includes the induction cooktop, Advantium oven, the AC and heating system, and the wireless TV and audio. There are instructions in the cottage and I'll go over their basic functions during our walk-thru.
NOTE: Because of the rugged nature of the property, young children will need to be monitored outdoors. There are numerous areas around the property where anyone, if they are not careful, could be seriously injured or killed.
And finally: Upon booking, Airbnb will email you a "Customer Receipt." On the top of the receipt will be a button to View and Print your Itinerary. This Itinerary is also available on our Airbnb website message thread. Contained in the Itinerary under "House Manual" will be a Short Term Rental Agreement that I will ask you to sign upon check-in.

I'm a designer/builder NYC native and upstate transplant. I'm an avid outdoors person passionate about climbing and cycling. After 15 years of commuting on weekends to "the Gunks" to climb, I've finally fulfilled a dream and built a home in a rugged spot overlooking the funky and historic Village of Rosendale, NY. I designed and built a one bedroom flat and a fabulous 2 bedroom "eco" cottage so you too can enjoy this amazing place. If you come stay I'll be sure to tell you all the activities you must do while here. Bring energy!
