Our guest space sits about 30 yards from the main house on 1.29 acres of hilly, wooded land full of deer and birds and a meandering stream. The guest space is one room with full-size bed, alcove kitchen, desk, views of woods, full bath, Wifi, large closet, and garage parking if requested. It is 240 square feet about the size of a typical NYC studio apartment. Photos are included at the end of my photo stream. Stony Point is a mix of rural, New England-pretty and typical American small town.

Indawo
Please also bear in mind this is not a remote-forest-experience (not in the least.) It's also not very posh and manicured -- more "Grey Gardens" than "Better Home and Gardens." We are situated in a town that's a mixture of rural and suburban. The house is bounded on one side by an acre (not a large area) of trees and stream, but on the other side there's a two-lane, paved road that gets plenty of traffic during the day. (Though not so much at night.) It is DARK up here after dark, so house numbers are hard to see and you'll do better with a GPS.

The guest house is small. The deed to the house says it's 240 square feet. A comfortable fit for one person -- but also for two (depending how they feel about each other...haha...or even three if that third is very small.) The optimal number of guests is one, as, in size only, it's a bit like one of those New York City studio apartments. Several single working people have spent months here, working out of the apartment and have claimed to be quite satisfied with the experience. The Wifi has recently been upgraded and people who need reliable web access should be fine.

The bed is full-size. (IKEA Malm frame.) The bath is full, with nice water pressure and ready hot water, and there is a kitchenette -- stove, refrigerator, toaster oven, coffee maker -- in an alcove.

You would be about 30 yards away from the main house where I live with my husband. The main house is of historical interest because it used to belong to the modern artist Jasper Johns. Indeed, Johns designed some of the unique features of the main house and he turned part of the house into a huge, light-flooded studio where he painted -- during what is known as his "hashmark" phase, i.e. after he did the flags and made piles of money.

Because the house is so unique I have been getting an increasing number of requests from filmmakers, videographers and fashion photographers who want to use the main house as a backdrop. Vogue Australia, for instance, recently did a big shoot here. Sometimes the booking requests come in with only two or three days of lead time. Bear in mind that a shoot may be booked at the same time as your stay. It should not affect your stay. The shoots -- even music videos! -- are quiet and will not affect your car's movements. Still, you should factor in the possibility that you may be sharing the parking area with a film's lighting and props van...

Ukungena kondwendwe
There is plenty of parking. If you would like to park in the garage that can be arranged. The guest house has a small deck but you would certainly be welcome to wander around our 1.29 acres (not a huge area but nevertheless...) There is a small brook at the bottom of the property and some people like to follow its path. Deer like to hang out in the backyard. You'll probably also see wild turkeys, hawks, turkey vultures, egrets (long-legged fishing birds that fly low over the stream), foxes, chipmunks, squirrels and many kinds of smaller birds. Owls sometimes hoot at night.

Always be aware that you may be near poison ivy. I police it pretty vigorously but to be absolutely safe I recommend wearing long pants, socks and shoes if you walk in the woods.

Ezinye izinto ekufuneka uziqaphele
As I write this it is early March but this caveat will apply until mid-May: At this point I am only accepting reservations for the summer months (June, July, and August until Labor Day) of a week or longer.

What else is note-worthy? Poison ivy hiding in the deep grass?....Also if you plan to walk around in woodland and tall grass please be aware of deer ticks. There is abundant information about deer ticks and tick bites on the internet. I recommend reading up. Tick borne diseases are a serious matter. A more minor hazard: My wood chuck lives down by the steam bank, near the big pine trees. He's dug about four holes and you don't want to catch a leg in them.

The main house has become a popular location for film and still photography shoots. I make every effort to make sure the crews know about Airbnb guests and respect their desire for quiet and mobility

If you arrive after dark please be advised that the driveway is dark. There is an illuminated street address sign but not much light around the head of the driveway, and it's a bit steep and sharply angled if you approach it from a westerly direction. There's not much I can think of to do about the lighting situation short of putting in lights that would disturb my neighbors and just generally look crass and garish. Just be prepared to turn on your brights and proceed slowly. This is a more rural area and the street as a whole could be a lot darker than you are used to if you are from a city.

But please also bear in mind this is not a remote-forest-experience (not in the least.) We are situated in a town that's a mixture of rural and suburban. The house is bounded on one side by an acre (not a large area) of trees and stream, but on the other side there's a two-lane, paved road that gets plenty of traffic during the day. (Though not so much at night.) It is DARK up here after dark, so house numbers are hard to see and you'll do better with a GPS.

Winter Is Coming (well, eventually.) Most people around here have 4-wheel drive cars. This allows us to cope with slippery roads and snow-choked and steep driveways. Our 4-wheel drive Subaru Foresters are awesome in snow -- just like little tanks. (There's a reason the Subaru Forester is the National Car of Vermont -- Just kidding, but they are ubiquitous up there.) If you have one of those flimsy little Zip Car tin thingies...um...how do I put it...life may be harder for you. The little oil-fueled heater we keep in the guest house is powerful, silent and doesn't blow that awful dry heat you get with an electric heater. If you find the air too dry, however, you will find a humidifier in the closet. For the last two years running I have been lucky to have had guests all the way through the winter months, so the little place is quite habitable, and has even been described as cozy.

Stony Point, New York, United States

Stony Point is what I call a Rubarb, somewhere between Rural and Suburban. Parts of this little town, notably Main Street where we live, look like any country road you'd see in New England. There are several churches, and many small homes, painstakingly landscaped with flowering trees. Other parts of the town look like Everytown U.S.A., i.e. not so scenic but at least amenity-rich with fast food restaurants and chain drug stores. We're big fans of Hogan's Diner in the center of town -- and apparently so is the rest of the town, as its always jammed to the gills. The food is good, they do takeout and there's a busy, bustling atmosphere. It's a family restaurant but the food is much better than at homogenized, franchise places like Denny's or Bob Evans. Waiting for a table is not bad at all. You can sit on a bench they provide and watch the local scene.

My husband and I are hard-working editor/writers (is there any other kind these days?) and former long-time residents of New York City. We miss the city a bit but love the amount of SPACE we have out here. We're both also big nature enthusiasts so we like waking up to bird song and the wind in the trees. Nature would not be complete, however, without lots of NFL and NBA TV. If you ever want to talk Knicks Stephanie is your ticket. Given up on the Knicks? Bill, a former Brooklynite, still has high hopes for the Nets.
