Consider the title of the post said tongue-in-cheek, based on an earlier post about Rosendale ranking as the third most liberal city in the U.S.
But we here in the Hudson Valley/Catskills understand that it takes all kinds to make this area interesting, whether you lean toward blue, red, purple, or every shade in between. One thing that binds us all here at Upstater, regardless of political leanings, is that we know a cool house when we see one…or two.
So, without further ado, here are two houses renting for less than $2000/month near that melting pot known as the town of Rosendale, just in case you’re looking to give it a go without purchasing:
You can get a lot for $1500/month in Ulster County, and in this case, it will score this 3 bed/2 bath Victorian with a Craftsman interior. Sits down the road less than 2 miles from the center of Rosendale in the wee hamlet of Tillson and includes washer/dryer and a third-floor room + half bath suited for guests or a studio/home office.

Looking for something a little more out in the country? This 3 bedroom farmhouse on an acre of land is all yours situated south of Tillson hamlet and 10 minutes from New Paltz village. Depicted above is the back of the farmhouse (with outdoor patio), but we thought it was worth pointing out the front of the house, which we grabbed from Streetview:
How much do you love that stone front porch? The house is 1500 sq. ft. with 3 beds/2 baths, pets TBD, and is available on a 6 month lease (possibly longer according to the listing) starting January 1, 2016. Looks like a nice way to start the New Year.
