Property description

Near H.I.T.S., Woodstock, skiing. Many original details including wide plank oaks floors in a sun-filled country kitchen. Guests can sit on the porch and overlook the property's meadow and gardens while the kids catch frogs and fireflys. The property sits on a quiet country road and has an open grassy area for play as well as meadow, marsh and wooded terrain. Huge catalpa trees provide nature's perfect jungle gym and also a branch for a tree swing. Kids can invent games in the playhouse.

Budget travel named Saugerties one of the coolest small towns in America-see link below

The FARMHOUSE: After looking at over 75 properties we fell in love with this farmhouse and after many obstacles were able to call it our home. Fixing it up has been our labor of love for over 20 years. So many of the original details remain and we have furnished it with a mix of primitives and contemporary pieces. We are a family of artists and have decorated the house with our artwork and our favorite flea market finds. The kitchen is bright with original wide pine floors and well equipped with the cookware you might need to make a big pot of soup with the garden's harvest. There are four bedrooms upstairs (with a pack and play available) as well one of the two bathrooms.

The GROUNDS: We hardly ever leave our property once we settle in. There is always something blooming in the yard or garden. Our daughter loves to play restaurant in the playhouse my husband built, or swing on the tree swing out by the barn. Playing in the stream-catching frogs and fireflies are favorite activities. There is open space to play as well as a wooded area, meadow and gardens--all easily seen from the porch where you can relax with your coffee or favorite cocktail.
Throw some seed on the feeder and wait for the neighborhood birds to gather--including a few variety of woodpeckers and finches. Be sure to keep on eye out for the turkeys passing through the yard!
Winter usually brings snow enough to sled on a tiny hill next to the house. Making a bonfire and watching sparks fly up into the clear, crisp, star-filled sky has been a New Years tradition for our extended family for many years.

The AREA: It's the Catskills! It's Woodstock! You probably know all about the area. Even still there are always new places to discover--the falls- the quaint park on the Hudson-the swimming hole with the rope swing. The area boasts 4-star restaurants, and fabulous theater as well as folk, rock and chamber music. You can launch your kayaks and paddle out to the Saugerties lighthouse for a swim and picnic or spend the day watching equestrian competitions at H.I.T.S. Woodstock has a rich musical history --Big Pink is a stones throw away-- and though Levon Helm of the Band recently passed away his daughter still hosts the MIdnight Ramble. Check out the Woodstock Film Festival, one of many festivals in the area. Everything you might want to do is close by, yet you dont need to leave the peaceful stream-side property to feel renewed.
Saugerties was also named one of the 'COOLEST' small towns in America by Budget Travel--see link below

Saugerties -Esopus River

Car: Necessary

Our 1850's farmhouse sits on a quiet country road where 2 small streams connect. The porch overlooks the yard with lilacs, forsythia and peonies. A short walk across the stream brings you to the vegetable garden with tomatoes and herbs ready to be picked. Out by the barn a tree swing and hammock with a mountain view beckon. Though the house is in a remote location we are just minutes to the center of famed Woodstock--known for its 'hippie' vibe, music and art scene--join the weekly drum circle. In the other direction is downtown Saugerties where you will find an historic river town-its many antique shops a testament to it's rich history. The beauty of this area is well documented by the Hudson River School painters--Kaaterskill Falls and Thomas Cole's house Olana are nearby. Fishing and tubing in the Esopus, hiking and skiing, boating and swimming at sandy riveredge beaches or local swimming holes as well as golf, and tennis are all close by. Garlic festival-horse shows--here!
