The space was very clean and had a wonderful mix of modern and antique elements. The land is gorgeous and we really enjoyed the fire pit and kitchen space. A great place to spend time in nature.

This is our second stay at the Black Walnut Farm, which we rebooked given how much we enjoyed our first stay. All of the positives we had in our first stay remained the same - the outdoor space is immaculate and the house itself is large yet cozy and perfect for family gatherings. A few additional observations that we noticed more this year: 1. The bathrooms are all very modern and extremely nice, but I hadn’t taken advantage of the shower off the main bedroom (by the T.V. Room) last year with the oversized space and the 5 separate shower heads. For those looking for a genuinely decadent shower experience, that bathroom has it! 2. We spend a lot more time this year going on nearby hikes and the access to Minnewaska State Park was fantastic - definitely recommend Gertrude’s Nose and Sam’s Point for excellent day-long hikes nearby. 3. The hosts upped their welcome basket game this year and we had a very nice package waiting for us when we arrived. Check-in was a bit easier as well with the electric key lock on the front door. 4. For added convenience, we also noticed a lot more restaurants delivering to the property from New Paltz/Poughkeepsie compared with last year. Overall, this remains a great space for a family trip, especially with the outdoor space and the proximity to hiking/Poughkeepsie/New Paltz and other interesting venues. We did notice a few more indoor critters than last year - this is to be expected with any country home although they seemed a bit more plentiful this time around. However, it was a small inconvenience and we would have no hesitation booking this place again next year.

What a delightful home! The layout was so perfect for a large group. There was always somewhere to lounge, somewhere to play games, somewhere to sit and chat. Our stay was in April so it wasn't quite warm enough to sit outside or enjoy the swimming pond but it was perfect for walks in the woods. Oh, and the kitchen is amazing!

What a wonderful home base for our family weekend!! The house is so beautiful, stylish and comfortable. It was spotlessly clean and provided everything we could have needed. And the grounds are gorgeous. We couldn’t have asked for a better spot.

This is a great house.
It has a lot of character and tons of space, plus the property it's on is beautiful. I was only there for two nights with my group but we all loved it. I'd love to come back in the summer when I can use the pond!

The Black Walnut Farmhouse was lovely. There was a slight mixup with the housekeeping schedule when we arrived but Home Sweet Hudson resolved the issue quickly and efficiently. The property itself was wonderful and in the morning when it snowed 6 in, they came to plow it out. Great stay.

We had a fantastic time at this beautiful house. It is decorated so thoughtfully and romantically. Great bathrooms. Spacious yet cosy. Incredibly well stocked. Fantastic fireplace. Very user-friendly. The management company were always quick to respond and very helpful. Our only minor disappointments were the extreme check-in and check-out times (you basically lose an entire day of your trip) and that there was no provision for recycling.

My friends and I came to Black Walnut Tree Farm for a cozy weekend away from the city. From the moment we pulled up to the house and walked in the door, I knew it was the PERFECT place. It has the exact right amount of rustic charm and character, combined with amenities and updates where you want them - a gorgeous kitchen with fantastic appliances, and beautiful tiled bathrooms. The surrounding land in really lovely and some of us enjoyed taking some hikes around the property. Management was responsive and helpful.

We had a lovely stay at Jo’s home! The house is so spacious and there was plenty of room for our party to spread out (two couples and three kids). The property is beautiful. Kitchen and baths were well-appointed and you could see the thought and care that went into creating the home. I appreciated the thoughtfulness around dark curtains on the windows (helpful for getting kids to sleep) and bathrooms with ample storage and towel bars. The large front porch with both a bench swing and a small swing was a huge hit. The house is an easy drive to many local attractions. We had fun at the nearby Wilklow Orchards where we picked apples, ate yummy food, sampled ciders, and listened to live music. We also visited Walkway Over the Hudson and could easily drive to New Paltz (the Grazery is our favorite spot) and hiked around Lake Minnewaska. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Unfortunately, five us had a bad stay. We learned that this Airbnb, thought supposedly run by “Jo” is actually a company that has many properties. That wouldn’t be a problem if it were well run and problems were addressed . We had no internet, which was unfortunate because our son from Vassar was going to stay with us for the weekend and do his homework. Without internet, he couldn’t watch a lecture and we couldn’t do enjoy a movie. The ice maker also wasn’t working. We sent a message and we were told to make sure it was on (we did) and it still didn’t work. Not a big deal, but annoying. They wouldn’t come address it the 3 days we were there but told me afterwards that “the cleaning crew said it was fine.” Ok. We thought a few things were funny. One was to please leave your shoes at the door. The house has peeling paint on every door, dust on the floors, mattresses from the last century and kitchen chairs that are so rickety, we went out to eat. If we hadn’t paid $1500 for 2 nights (note the standard $400 cleaning fee) and been treated so dismissively by the “hosts,” I’d have chalked it up to a quirky Airbnb experience but this is a company, and a poorly run one at that. As an aside; the “swimming pond” is pure mud.

Relaxing, meditative, and quiet! If you have a student at cia culinary it’s about a 20 minute ride away. I highly recommend the outdoor shower! I loved that the inside and outside was not overdone. Just simple and inviting.

There’s always a feeling when booking a house online that maybe it will be different in real life or not live up to the expectation of the photos. I can assure you it is not the case for this house. This home is absolutely beautiful. Everything about it was wonderful. The kitchen, the decor and furniture, the layout and spaciousness for everyone. And then to have the grounds to explore and a private pond on top of it all make it truly exceptional. It made my birthday an experience I will never forget. Would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for an amazing home to book :)

This is an incredible, enormous secluded old, modernized NY farmhouse, close to lots of stuff and far from it all. We sat in the front porch, reading, talking, the breeze cooling us off. The pond is great fun, though a true pond with critters and such. An outdoor shower to rinse off. Great for cooling off, they have some inflatables but bring an extra or two so all can float. Huge amazing kitchen. Enormous back yard. Deer, goldfinch, turtles, frogs, groundhog, bees, butterflies and flowers everywhere. Modern bathrooms, super showers. AC worked great even when it was 95. Books books books for kids and adults alike The electric is a bit old farmhouse-y, but works fine. Incredibly relaxing. If it looks like your kind of place, it definitely is. If not, it still probably is!
