Car-Free Upstate: New Paltz Colonial, $595,000

105 huguenot street new paltz ny

Located in New Paltz’s historic Huguenot Street neighborhood, this renovated 1840 Colonial is less than a mile from the Trailways bus stop on Main Street. Also walking distance to shops, restaurants, and other village amenities. The owner hipped us to this property and explained that they had originally purchased and renovated it in order to rent it out, but New Paltz enacted a local law prohibiting short term rentals. Bummer. So they’re selling. The work they put into it shows. The interior is fresh and bright, and check out the back deck. It has windows and a door that open into the kitchen (great for entertaining) and a view of the Wallkill River. We love the Huguenot Street area with its museums, historical properties, and access to the Rail Trail.

Olivebridge Cottage w/Pool, $150/night

olivebridge rental

We were recently asked if we knew of any rentals in the Ulster County area large enough for a family, $3000-$6000/month, with a pool. Tall order! But, we found this cottage in Olivebridge for $150/night or $1,500/week, and behold: It has a pool. And it sleeps 6-8 over 3 bedrooms, which might be a little cozy if you’re planning on being a party of 8, but 6 should be okay. Love the green kitchen and the screened-in porch. We think this is a pretty good deal, and so do a lot of other people, apparently. Its availability is very limited, but if you’re looking for a few days away from it all in order to luxuriate in a pool and do some BBQing, this could be the place for you. It’s also pet-friendly with a fenced-in yard.

Woodstock Cottage, $395/night

woodstock stone cottage

Here’s a rental we found thanks to one of our readers, who also owns the property. The Woodstock stone cottage is off Wittenberg Road, just minutes from Wilson campground and is situated on more than 12 acres, so privacy seems virtually assured. Of course, the first thing to catch our eye is the floor-to-ceiling picture window in the living room. Also of note are all of the little places around the property to escape with a book and a sketch pad. Includes a stone patio for BBQing, hot tub, mountain bikes, hammock, and wifi, and the description says that a swimming lake is a 10 minute walk away. Accommodate 8 guests divided up over 4 bedrooms. Only nightly rates are available, but long-term renters are welcome, so says the Homeaway.com description. A quick glance at the availability shows a lot of weekends blocked out, but plenty of weekdays available through the summer months.

Rosendale Bali House, $6000/month

hv bali house2

We’ve been looking for an excuse to post about this house in Rosendale for months now. It’s cropped up in our searches because it was on the market until the beginning of this year, when some very smart people with good taste scooped it up and made the fabulous rental property you see before you. This slice of Zen is situate on its own stream-fed pond (perfect for swimming. Who needs a pool?), and the interior is resplendent with detailed Balinese carvings throughout. Also included: High bamboo ceilings, an outdoor shower, wrap-around patio, and a meditation sanctuary with a nearly 360 degree view of the pond outside. Yes, $6000/month is a lot, but it accommodates 8, and it’s close to Rosendale, Kingston, High Falls, Stone Ridge, and New Paltz. Or, if you’d rather keep it shorter and cheaper, you could pay $300-$350/night, two night minimum stay.
