Rental of the Week: Mount Tremper Retreat, $1150/week

Imagine a place where you can sit in silence on the screened-in porch while the wind whispers through the trees, a place where you can relax by soaking in the deep claw-foot tub, or by chanting “aum” in the meditation room. Now, imagine that you could get to this place without your car.

You can do all of these things here at this 1,100-sq. ft. retreat in Mount Tremper, which popped up in our listings section. There’s a Trailways bus stop a quarter-mile away, the UCAT local bus takes you to nearby places like Kingston or Woodstock, and you can walk to Hanover Farm for groceries, just a mile away. The property is surrounded by gorgeous stream and forest views.

Property is convenient to Belleayre Mountain, Phoenicia, Catskill Preserve hiking trails, swimming in the Beaverkill Creek and more swimming at Colgate Lake, but you’ll need your car for those trips. Meditation room doubles are a guest bedroom. The rental goes for $175 per night or $1150 per week. Contact shokoshoju@gmail.com for availability, and be prepared to provide references.
