Our cottages were built in the 1930's. Renovations have retained their charm and history. They are peaceful & private with a comfortable distance between each of them and our home on nine acres. Mature trees shade each cottage with meadows and mountains in every direction. Each cottage has its own kitchen, bathroom, heater, A/C, TV/VCR, DVD, CD player (sorry, no T.V. Service). WIFI onsite. Sheets, bath towels and our homemade soap are provided, as well as our homemade granola, teas, fresh ground organic coffee. On Sunday morning we deliver fresh baked scones to your cottage. You'll find the cottage clean and the beds made, ready for you to settle in and enjoy.

The cottages are in the perfect location to enjoy a holiday outdoors. The owners are friendly and the property is quiet and serene. This is a great place to go to get away and enjoy nature. I found the cottage clean, rustic, and a perfect place to relax after a day of hiking at the nearby reserves.

Quiet, clean, rustic and relaxing, Clove Cottages is the place you want to go to truly unplug and get back to nature. Michelle and Noah are genuine people who take great care of the cottages and practice sustainable living. And their llama Sugar? Such a cutie! Bring baby carrots for her (and make sure to get permission from Michelle and Noah first). My pregnant fiancee and I stayed in the white cottage while our friends (who are also a couple) stayed in the red cottage. Perfect balance for the required social distancing! We bbq'd the entire time and enjoyed an agenda-less trip. But that's not to say there isn't anything to do. Swimming, hiking, visiting various farms are just some of the activities you can do. I highly recommend this place!

Every time we turn into the private road at Clove Cottages, we feel as if we have returned once again to our home away from home. We have been enjoying respite from city life at this beautiful and restful get-away for eleven years. These charming and colorful house-keeping cottages, nestled in lush green meadows in view of the splendid Shawangunk Ridge, are completely eco-friendly, cozy, clean, and comfortable. Michelle and Noah have tastefully furnished (ours, at the Wintergreen Cottage, has a Franklyn Heater!) each cottage, without clutter or fanfare. With the BBQ grill and a fully functional kitchen, a farm/organic co-op five minutes away, apple orchards and local vegetable and fruit stands, we could whip up wonderful meals, when we weren’t inspired to drive to our favorite restaurants (The Village Tearoom in New Paltz and Aroma Thyme in Ellenville). Don’t expect cookie-cutter B& B services here (although they deliver their freshly baked to-die-for scones on Sunday morning, and each cottage supplies delicious homemade granola, freshly ground organic coffee and homemade soap). Your comfortable beds are already made before arrival with clean linen and there are ample towels in the bathroom (ours has a wonderful whirl-pool bath), reliable Wi-Fi, books on the shelves (and our cottage had a smart TV hooked to the owners’ Netflix account), but no impersonal hotel-type room service (they will change bedding and towels if you are staying more than a week). Very friendly and responsive hospitality from Michelle and Noah (and their dog, Ruby, their llamas, Sugar and Cocoa, several chickens and a multitude of birds, including swallows, hummingbirds and mourning doves) provides so much more down-home comfort than most of the commercial places we have stayed in. Of course, there are plenty of places to hike and bike, including the Mohonk Preserve and Lake Minnewaska State Park (or even up and down the sparsely travelled road next the property). Finally, the cottages are nicely spaced—so there is privacy, but not complete isolation. Needless to say, we will be back again and again to this healing, idyllic setting.

I needed a place for my boyfriend and me to stay after the Bob Dylan concert @ Hutton Brickyards. Once I found Clove Cottages, we decided to make it a weekend getaway instead of just staying overnight. The Blue cabin was wonderful. The peace, positive energy, and relaxation we found at Clove Cottages is second to none and is a clear testament to the love and care Noah & Michelle have put into it - from the recycling/composting and solar panels, to the granola and hammock. We were also intrigued by the llamas, who weren't too interested in us, though Sugar did take a minute to say hello and snort in my face. :) We will definitely be back soon to do more hiking and exploring in the area. During your stay at Clove Cottages, definitely make a trip to the High Falls Food Co-Op. They have a great selection of organic, natural, and local products and produce. Not to mention a fabulous "buy only what you need" spice and bulk foods section - we wish we had something like this closer to home!

We were traveling from New Jersey & chose this place as it was pet friendly. I am expecting and wanted a break with 15month old son, my husband, mom & our 14 yr old labrador. We chose Yellow Cottage & Cottage 6 since they were close to each other. This is not like a warm homely bed & breakfast at all! They didn't make our father's day or anniversary special as they were cold & are not willing to go that extra mile to accommodate their guest. Our cottage was too small for the 4 of us including the dog. The gadgets given were not fully functional & going on a holiday we had to wash our dishes, clean up and were conscious about the towels they gave us. I suggest you bring your own towels & toiletries as they have none which is of any standard. The feeling you get once you enter the cottage is mismatched stuff anesthetically arranged. This was not a comfortable stay and the beds gave us back aches, the bedroom had no AC so our dog was also feeling hot. There is nothing much to do on the property and they have the smallest bathrooms with no amenities. Since they claim to be ecofriendly there are too many rules. My mom's cottage was rather mendicant much like the other we stayed at.The proximity to any decent restaurant is 5miles, though Hasbrouck House is on the pricey side, so can't be a regular feature with a dog & an infant/ child. Maybe for trekkers who want a clean bed/ overnight's sleep this might work. Handwritten notes lend an unprofessional look to the room. Our beds didn't even have nightstands or bed side table, very little storage. Sparse existence really!The bathroom was minuscule and such a small basin & a tiny bar of soap.They don't even have facilities for us to wash clothes or a line to hang our wet clothes/towels.But,since we live in a 4 bedroom house & can see fox as well as deer in our backyard for us Clove Cottages wasn't a well deserved Father's day break to celebrate our anniversary. We felt claustrophobic and didn't even get a good night's sleep. The bohemian /gypsy feel at Clove Cottages didn't appeal to us.My husband & mom were practically living on tylenol, alive & other painkillers.We didn't feel special at all on this getaway. Michele & Noah tried to be informative & helpful and they are simple people, who offered us their farm eggs, but they have a lot to learn about hospitality. I have lived across several bed & breakfast/cottages across 5 continents in the past decade,as I worked for the United Nations; before becoming a mom & getting married. We aren't coming back where we need to bring in expensive biodegradable silverware, plates, glasses, sort out the garbage. Not to mention also the compost & recycle bins were too small to hold my son's diapers or dog poops, let alone pizza boxes & beer bottles/growlers or water bottles. At the end of 3 nights & having paid $990, we wanted to run back home.Had they capitalized on the natural beauty and been close to a stream or spectacular mountain view it might have even worked.

Response from MichelleGullickson, Owner at Clove Cottages
Responded Jul 21, 2017
Dear Srey, We are sorry to see here that you did not enjoy your stay with us! We'd like to point out a few things about your review. For one, we are not a Bed & Breakfast! It is stated that we are Housekeeping Cottages on our website and on the policies to which each guest is asked to agree at the time of making their reservation. It is also explained in this policy that that means we expect our guests to clean up after themselves and place their recycling & compost in bins separate from the trash. We do Not require that you bring disposable utensils, cups and plates (biodegradable or other). We prefer you use the silverware, ceramic plates and glasses at the cottage and do provide a sponge and dish soap in the fully furnished kitchen. While we wish guests with birthdays & anniversaries, etc our warm wishes and will accommodate most any request to provide something special, no request was made. Many of our guests tell us they enjoy the best night's sleep here. Sorry you didn't like the Serta perfect Sleeper Hotel series mattress; most do like it. The bathroom has a toilet, tub & shower, a bottle of conditioning shampoo, towels, bath mat, a bar of our homemade soap, extra toilet paper, a hairdryer, mirror and storage space. We do not provide those little jars of hotel shampoo & lotions and we usually do not replace towels for guests staying less than a week, however, we happily honored your request for new towels each of your three days. We were quite hospitable to you. You treated us like servants. Perhaps it was that you had closed your dog in the bedroom (closed off from the a/c in the living room) each time your returned from your day that he barked loudly and incessantly while you were at home? We asked that you do not bring a 'barker'. We are not a corporate hotel chain. We are an original run by only ourselves. Our prices are very competitive. We do mix and match furnishings and we ask that guests let us know if anything is inoperable so we may have the opportunity to make a repair or replacement. We strive to provide clean and functional unfussy décor and a comfortable stay for self-sufficient travelers looking to be near nature preserves, historical attractions and excellent food options- whether dining in or out. We are not secretive about asking our guests to be responsible for themselves and to the environment. For the majority of our guests, that is not asking too much!
