Property description

Treat yourself to a romantic getaway or personal retreat in your own private luxury cottage, on a quiet dead-end lane walking distance to the center of Woodstock ~ and just two hours from NYC! Enjoy the cultural attractions of this thriving and historic “colony of the arts”: theaters, clubs, galleries, boutiques, restaurants and cafes. Or stay home and luxuriate on your queen-size sultan-style sofa, basking in the sunlight streaming through the skylights 20 ft overhead! Explore the surrounding Catskill Mountains, or relax by your garden surrounded by flowers and tall grasses in the summer or next to a fire in the winter and admire the mountain view! You can prepare snacks and meals in your fully-equipped country kitchen, or treat yourself to gourmet meals at Woodstock's famed restaurants. At night, dim the rose-colored chandelier in the bedroom to a soft glow, stretch out on your queen-size bed with luxury linens, and watch the stars shine through the moon roof overhead.* The Blue Pearl truly is a hidden gem and oasis ~ what former guests have described as “a work of art' and a travel magazine recently called 'the lodging equivalent of a consciousness raising that inspires renewal of mind, body and spirit!'

Amenities include: high-speed wireless Internet access; TV/VCR/DVD player with a large screen monitor; library of books, games, CDs, videos and DVDs; two queen-size beds with luxury linens; comfortable air bed to sleep two additional people (6 max in cottage); spa robes and slippers; 20 ft. ceilings with skylights and ceiling fan; AC in the summer; gas-fueled fire stove and snowshoes in the winter; additional electric baseboard heaters with thermostat in bedroom and bathroom so you'll be nice and cozy in the cooler months; fully-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher; private parking for two cars; and a garden and outdoor sitting area with a gas grill, fire pit, Tiki torches and mountain views!
*Blackout blind for the bedroom skylight for the light sensitive sleepers!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

About: I was not born in this country. I was born in France. Paris, to be more specific. From there I moved to Rome and from Rome I moved to New York City where I lived for 25 years in the East Village. I’ve also traveled quite a bit to exotic places: Nepal, India (six times), Algeria, Switzerland, Jamaica, Mexico, Morocco, Dominican Republic, Sicily, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Panama, and South Africa. I‘ve been all around the world, but I’ve chosen to live in Woodstock. Why? The answer is simple: I was called here. For its beauty, tranquility, and community.

Why Woodstock:
The history of the Blue Pearl and the land upon which it is built is a history rich with art, music, creativity, and self-expression. The previous owners were both artists. And before them, the home was owned by the legendary Ruth Ingalls, a grand dame who turned the property into a Creative Arts camp – a dynamic place where Bob Dylan and many other locals sent their children to learn, grow, and experience. Jimi Hendrix once lived across the street. So did Jimmy Cobb, the legendary drummer who played with Miles Davis, George Bellows, the great American painter lived on the next block. And today, the tradition continues. Within a five-minute drive are the homes and studios of more than 40 artists – many of whom will be happy to show you their work (if we give them just a bit of notice).

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
From the outside, it is quite unassuming, appearing to be a modest Woodstock artist's cottage. Inside, however, the Tuscan-toned interior opens to reveal fabulous art, architectural details, and elegant furnishings with Eastern accents and romantic touches. Many who have been here liken it to a modern day sultan’s den – a secret place to renew, refresh, and rejoice. The newly-renovated cottage features 20 ft. ceilings with skylights, polished wood floors, oriental carpets, fully-equipped kitchen, and two queen-size beds with luxury linens. One bed is positioned under a rose-colored chandelier and skylight. The other serves as a canopied, sultan-style sofa in the great room – a room that also contains a dining area, library, office, and cozy sitting area in front of the fire in the gas-fueled heat stove. Located on a quiet, private lane less than a mile from the center of town, the Blue Pearl includes a sunny meadow, a lush yard with gardens, and a private sitting area that provides a breathtaking view of the mountains. Truly, the Blue Pearl is a hidden gem – what former guests have described as “a work of art' and a well-known travel magazine described as 'the lodging equivalent of a consciousness raising event that inspires renewal of mind, body and spirit.” So, whether you are coming for a romantic getaway, personal retreat, or easy access to the many Hudson Valley sports, hiking trails, or cultural events, welcome! I trust your stay will be an unforgettable one.
