Basic Info:

We have a large room with two big closets for rent in our house, 7 miles from SUNY New Paltz campus and New Paltz village. Rent is $700 and includes all utilities, wireless Internet, basic cable TV, driveway snow plowing, yard care, and garbage/recycling removal, but no phone. Long- or short-term is okay. There's no lease for you to sign, but we ask two months notice prior to moving. We're looking for someone to move in ASAP, hopefully by March 1st. Our landlords don't allow dogs, sorry!

Interested? Here's more:

Our place is an old farmhouse with character and charm, including high ceilings, hardwood floors, tall windows, and large (and effective) cast iron radiators. You'll also find a recently purchased washer and dryer, fully equipped kitchen, nice entry room, and a bright/pleasant full bathroom (with tub). You get your own pantry space and shelf in the bathroom. We have 100% dry basement storage and a large, glassed-in front porch (for bikes, gardening tools, etc). We also have a small sun porch on the back of the house.

Our enormous backyard (two acres surrounded by farms on all sides) has plenty of wild and cultivated flowers, flowering trees, a fire pit, and a large lively pond complete with adorable muskrats and ducklings in spring. Many beautiful birds and other wildlife frequent the yard. Abundant blackberries and blackcap raspberries for picking in summertime.

The household is fairly artsy, and has been home to many artists, musicians and writers, but we're open to anyone respectful, kind and considerate. We try to take care of our house and keep it clean, and hope you can do the same. Vegetarians are welcome, but this is not a vegetarian/vegan-only house. But here's a deal breaker: Renters must be non-smokers. This is not just about smoking inside the house. We are looking for people who simply don't smoke tobacco.

We are a very short walk from Wright's Farm Market. They sell delicious fresh produce and baked goods year-round. Under 20 minute drive to the beautiful Minnewaska State Park Preserve and Mohonk Preserve on the Shawangunk ridge, home to famous hiking, mountain biking and climbing. Gardiner town and Modena town are each 2 miles away, with a Hannaford and a Stewart's in Modena. A bank, bar/pizza place, 24 hour gas station/convenience store, and deli are all within walking distance.

Call Stacy for more information at 1-845-255-1920 (please leave a message and I'll get right back to you) or send us a message. We look forward to hearing from you!
