“Perfect Christmas Getaway”
Reviewed December 24, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

My husband and I chose Schoolhouse Cottage for a Christmas week getaway, so our son, who lives in New York City could commute by train to spend the weekend and Christmas out of the city. It was exactly what we were looking for. The cottage is warm, inviting and well-equipped. It was like staying in a friend's home. Tom and Julie were wonderful hosts. We were welcomed with gits of wine and coffee, and Tom came by to meet us and see if we needed anything. He made recommendations for dinner (don't miss A Tavola in New Paltz), and sightseeing. The setting is beautiful - we had snow the first 2 days. The location is very convenient to several Hudson Valley villages and towns, to bridges across the Hudson and by train into NYC. We plan to come back in different seasons. We highly recommend.

What perfect guests to enjoy the first Christmas at the Schoolhouse Cottage; we all appreciated the light snowfall that came on Christmas Eve. Jane and family comfortably celebrated, shared presents, and enjoyed a family holiday. It was nice to see how easily their son managed the NYC to Schoolhouse commute using the Beacon train. Thanks for visiting New Paltz! Hope that you'll return.

This is such a kind review and we were so pleased to have this family enjoy Thanksgiving at the Cottage and on the farm. They jumped -- or rather ran - right in by participating in our town's annual Turkey Trot which benefits "Family of New Paltz." Great cause and a wonderful way to see what all of us love about the New Paltz vibe and village. Please visit us again : ) TOM

It was great having this guest at the Cottage; she quietly studied for a big exam and then took a few well-timed and well-earned breaks walking the farm. M is always welcome here : ) TOM

We loved having this family at the Schoolhouse...it's always nice to imagine what the farm looks like through the eyes of a 5 year-old. Most kids get here and love to run as soon as their legs hit the ground. Over time, though, they begin to observe nature a little more closely. This family relocated to New Paltz and used the Schoolhouse as a transitional base to explore our area and find their perfect house.
