IF YOU ARE PLANNING A WEDDING OR SPECIAL EVENT IN THE AREA, I AM A PROFESSIONAL EVENT PLANNER AND CAN SHARE IDEAS AND ADVICE FOR FREE! Our homes are great if hotels in the area are too expensive for family members coming in from out of town!

Feel free to call me anytime and PLEASE - NO GROUPS that are seeking a place to drink and party. This is a quiet neighborhood, great for people seeing to unwind, get away from noise, get away from the hubbub of their lives and to just be outdoors in nature, hang out by the pool or in winter, the fireplace.

This is a good place for those that have worked hard all week and now wish to float around on the lake and gaze at the sky, cast out for some fishies or float around on our row-boat or bring up some kayaks to float around on.

This is a great place for mountain climbers as we are just a mile from the well known climbing cliffs. Our land borders Mohonk Preserves and we are around the corner from Minnewaska State Park!

This is a great place for swimmers! Our pool can support a lapster all day long and we open early May and close late October!

This is a great place for your corporate retreat wherein your business executives need a quiet place to catch up and have a private meeting to plan important projects and to work hard while being in a heavenly peaceful and relaxing environment away from hustle and bustle with wifi, loads of tables and small desks and more!

This is a great place for a meditation group, or a spiritual retreat, where people can quietly meditate, relax, do art projects, write, think and catch up with their thoughts. The lake is especially great for this type of experience.

Because our home is so great for families, to encourage more family visitors we installed a fabulous playground with a swing set, climbing wall, tree house, slide and climbing ladder. Loads of fun for kids in multiple ages. We also have a small private park for our renters featuring a great space for picnics, volley ball and more.

The home is now a gallery of nature photographs that are on sale at a discount for renters, these are nature photos made by the owner of the property.

Because this is a quiet residential we seek groups that are specifically seeking a quiet place themselves so that we make a good match.

PS - the house is NOT for sale!

Regards,

Iris

Only minutes from Minnewaska or Mohonk, and 4 miles from the town of New Paltz and New Paltz College and all the stores in town.

About Iris, The Lake Illyria Estate LLC,

I am the daughter of the architect that designed and built the home. She is now 92 and the house is too big and too much for her alone. I live and work in NJ so we look to share the wonder and specialness of the home Mom designed for her and our family to live in the most wonderful conditions with a ton of romantic settings, but most of all, a quiet haven away from hustle and bustle. A place to heal, be quiet, relax and be with nature. Swim in the lake or pool. Relaxing picnics on the dock or deck and completely unwind from stress.

Please be aware that we still use the house from time to time for ourselves when not rented to vacationers so many of our own personal items are still in the home, including 6000 books in the two libraries, some clothing, all sorts of kitchen items; some you will use, some you might not use, art work, decorations and supplies. If you want a totally empty rental, please check out our other home around the corner - home number 3871453 also live on this website that is a 6 bedroom home and has no personal items in it what-soever.

When you stay at our home, you feel like you are a friend staying over. You will feel connected to our family history and legacy of music, art, literature and architecture. We welcome you into our history!

ALSO please know that I am always available during rental periods by phone and email and both my house keeper and handyman are less than 30 minutes away if you can't find something or don't know how to work an appliance!

Iris, The Lake Illyria Estate LLC, purchased this house in 2004

Why Iris, The Lake Illyria Estate LLC, chose Hudson Valley

This property is exquisite, gorgeous, modern, quiet, all white, soft, relaxing and one-of- a kind house for rent. Built only 12 years ago, most everything is pretty new in the home. Great views. Within walking distance to lake. A fully heated Salt Water Pool, A brand new hot tub and the house is newly rennovated from top to bottom. This place is great for family reunions, friends reunions, weekend retreats and holiday vacation rentals all year round.

Horseback riding lessons just around the corner and the closest restaurant is just one mile from the house. Kayaking in New Paltz on the Wallkill River only minutes away. Mohonk and Minnewaska park lands surround our property!

What makes this house unique

We are minutes away from Minnewaska, one of the most beautiful parks in the country. We are also a few minutes away from Lake Mohonk and the Famous Mohonk Preserves, so we are surrounded by thousands and thousands of acres of land, numerous lakes, hiking, horse-back riding, kayacking in the river in town and only 4 miles from the town of New Paltz for movies, mini-malls and so much more. We are a hop skip and jump from Woodstock with concerts and art fairs.

In addition, one of the great things about our land is that we sit on water springs (that is how we got our fantastic lake!) Just a few days at our LAKE HOUSE and swimming in our natural spring lake could have wonderful health benefits for your body and well being!

Wonderful property to celebrate a special birthday with family & friends!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute BLAST during our time here! We celebrated two 30th birthdays with our closest friends and family. Most of our time was spent soaking up the sun in the huge pool and playing volleyball by the new picnic tables. Lots of great space in the house for all the sleep comfortably, along with plenty of linens and towels to use. We used the charcoal grill (the bigger one works better) for most of our meals and loved being able to walk down to the lake to enjoy the views.

Iris was a joy to work with, as she was very prompt with her responses to all of our questions. We hope we have another opportunity to rent the property again! Thank you for the great memories!!

Great time!

My friends and I stayed at the house over July 1st weekend. It was a beautiful setting with both a pool and lake to take advantage of. Great place to have a fun weekend with friends!

We had a truly fabulous time! We are definitely coming back again!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we all had. Beautiful home! Hot tub was my all time favorite place to relax! Huge deck around the pool, enough room that 24 of us could hang out at the pool all day long. Unfortunately we only got to the lake in our last hour when we were throwing out our trash... So we missed out on that, but the kids had fun in the playground and we had a picnic out there while playing volleyball and hanging out by the picnic tables. Next time, we are going to do the Kayak thing on the lake. I was a bit sad that the kids didn't have more time on the water or in the boat and we completely missed out on the fire pit.

It would have been helpful if we had a map of the land to remind us about the lake and fishing/boating/lake-swimming... we simply forgot it was there! Future renters - go to the lake when you get there, especially if you have kids or a dog!

Iris and her staff were great. The cleaning crew was just packing up when we got there - I think there were 6 people in that group! I was really impressed. Anytime I texted Iris with questions her responses came within seconds. Nice.

The house was spotless! I've been renting vacation homes for years for our family get together and this was by far, the cleanest rental I ever rented. Not a spec of anything ANYWHERE!

This house doesn't have a ton of cooking stuff, just the basics, but I was told about this ahead of time so I was prepared. The list I got ahead of time with was in the house and what I had to bring was spot-on. Very organized.

We usually don't rent the same place twice for our family get-togethers, but this one is a definite repeat. I think next time, we will try the other house, that one looked really interesting - we could see it up in the woods from our side of the lake.

By the way, there is a lot of documentation that comes with this rental. No other rental we ever were at has this! At first when I got the welcome pack I said "are you kidding!?!? when I saw about 10 attachments." But, as I opened each document I was pleasantly surprised. I had a page on how to operate hot tub, a list of things to bring, instructions on how to open and close the house plus a few more docs! A little OCD if you ask me, but turned out to be very helpful during our stay. My only suggestion to the owner is add one more document - add a MAP of the land to make sure renters find the lake! I GIVE THIS VACATION FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY!

Great weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at the house. The space was perfect for us (group of 13 guys). The location was close to the town and great hikes at the nearby parks. The house had a lot of space in the backyard for games/activities, and while it was too cold for the swimming pool, the hot tub was still working (a little dirty though don't know if that was our group or remnants from before). Iris was very easy to work with and provided good info/help.

Owner's Response: Hi Michael, I just noticed your note! So glad you had a good time. For your next trip, remember, that we put 100% fresh clean water in the hot tub in between every single rental and deliver the hot tub waters clear as crystal. We also provide a foot tub to rinse your feet off before entering the tub. When you walk into the hot tub without rinsing your feet off, the water can get murky very fast so make sure for next time that you rinse off before jumping in! HAPPY TRAILS and thanks for the compliments and kind words. Also remember, that I have a handyhman and a housekeeper on call to help with anything that is needed during your stay. Iris
