Less than two hours north of New York City, Rosendale is a progressive town with activities almost every week including the Rosendale Street festival, Woodstock movie festival and the International Pickle Festival.

Within a 15 minute walk there is the library, post office, liquor store, two pizza places, Matsu Sushi, the Rail Trail (hiking, and biking) with trestle, boutique retail, and the Rondout creek. Table Rock tours is nearby for bicycle rentals. Talk to me for secret swimming holes nearby.

Just so you know, our objective is to provide an affordable, fun place to stay in Rosendale and to meet new people. Please use AirBNB as the primary way to contact us. Our phone is a land line, please call if an emergency but DO NOT text. Keep in mind cell service is spotty in the area so plan accordingly. We enjoy giving guidance and tips for seeing the area so please don't hesitate. We frequent happy hour at the Red Brick Tavern and can chat there, just let us know when you are going. We are experts on the local history and our family members started the Century House Historical Society at the AJ Snyder estate a short ride up the street, a nice place to visit to tour the old cement mine and to learn about local history.
Please smoke outside as we do and have a great time that's a rule. Check-in time is 3 PM, check out is at noon. Please communicate via AirBnB unless it is an emergency.
I manage this rental with Althea Werner, my life partner. I travel worldwide, have almost 2 million air miles and have stayed in all variety of accommodations from tents, hostels, BnBs, to 5 star hotels. My favorites in the US are San Francisco, Boston and Arizona. Internationally, I love Germany, Tokyo (lived there for 6 months after the earthquake), and Belize. All of this experience allows me to understand what travelers enjoy.
