We bought this property at the tax auction at the end of 2015. The previous owner was a hoarder of mostly cool reusable things that we have been sorting through and making sense of for the past year. There are a few boats and campers that we are demoing to build more little cabins! The junk is mostly on 3 acres of the property and the remaining 100 acres are just magic forest and fields with springs, streams, blueberries and mushrooms galore!
We lived in this little gem all last year, while we were building our cabin, and it was magical! I spent the summer alone in it and it was life changing! This year we moved into the main cabin, just over the hill, and are offering the Winnebago cabin for rent.
I raise fiber animals and hand spin, and crochet winter garments and Carlos sells artisan products from Guatemala. I am originally from Australia and Carlos is from Spain.

The Winnebago sleeps 4 with two full sized beds. Camping is also an option ($40 per tent/two people) if you want to bring a few more friends, but needs to be discussed with us first. There is a beautiful little, mossy, field across from the spring to pitch tents.
You can drive right up to the location, but we are on a rough dirt road, so 4wd is recommended. If you cannot drive up, it is only a short distance (5min) to walk in.
Free Wifi (yup...most places up here are lucky to get data to your phone, let alone cable internet! (AT&T works great for cellphone coverage) Although we recommend unplugging :)
Electricity-lights included. There is a large fridge outside and a mini fridge inside.
There is an outdoor kitchen with stove, sink and hot, spring fed outdoor shower too!
There are 103 acres of woods and trails to roam with a beautiful stream (15 min hike)There is also a little spring fed pool (2 min walk) for quick summer cool off dips, if you don’t want to drive to the big rivers.
Summitville, NY is surrounded by forests and wetlands. Sam's Point reserve for insane hiking, views, and ice caves. The Bashakill is a beautiful place to kayak or stop at the winery. The Neversink river and Sandburg creek are nearby for swimming. 45mins to Kingston/Woodstock, 35mins to New Paltz, 35mins to Narrowsburg/Callicoon, 1.5 hrs to NYC.
There is a lovely train ride via NJTransit to Middletown or Otisville (20 min cab ride or bike ride?!?!) or the Shortline bus with different options (direct 1.5 hrs to Monticello, then 20min cab) or there is a longer bus that takes you to Wurtsboro and even Summitville (5mins away)
Wurtsboro is our main town and is small and quite quirky. There is a synagogue that was transformed into a crystal store, a new library, Danny’s Pub and restaurant, a Harley Davidson dealer and a great little Health Food store. Ellenville is 10 mins north of us with quite a few restaurants with farm to table offerings. Giovanni's does pizza Wednesday nights outside in the brick oven!
We are a homestead farm, so you can cuddle with chickens, puppies, kitties, mini pigs, rescued squirrels and of course, angora bunnies :)
