Saugerties house description

The Woodstock experience and convenient--no owner present on or near the cottage! Yes, it's yours. Decks, open floor plan, gourmet kitchen, stocked pantry, (use what ever you want).
Walk in to the huge open area, with walls of windows, and just relax. Don't worry about your first meal; a bottle of wine, or breakfast- it's all there!
Open-concept, vaulted ceilings, solid wood floors, light filled, three walls of windows, with wrap around decks, to dine or relax on. How about a wonderful dinner?
The gourmet kitchen with s/s appliances and granite has all the right tools! Yes, cupboards are stocked with great cutlery, plates, glasses, pots and pans, and bar equipment. Spices, pantry and fridge basics and a bottle of wine waiting.
Two bedrooms: one queen, one full. The full is a futon, yet comfortable. The queen has glass doors leading to the deck. A small crib could be placed in each bedroom. We have air conditioning, a must in the heat of the summer.

The house is perched, offering a view of the Catskills and winding country roads. There is a sitting area in the rear with a fire pit, and a trail leading up the mountains.

The fish creek is famous for it's winding water, falls, trails, and secret paths, galleries, home to many artists, writers and musicians. We will leave you easy directions to our 'hidden spots,' minutes away. Some great for a swim, a picnic, or just relaxing with nature. This area offers skiing, hiking, great food, and continuous entertainment- and of course, it's inspiring!

Drive or bike to the Woodstock town center or to Saugerties. Coming with a group? Many of our guests rent multiple cottages rather than one enormous place. Let us know if you are coming with a group. Our cottage is best suited for four adults - and/or children but contact me if you are a party of six.

A bottle of our wine awaits you!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: This is my favorite spot! In the back of the cottage, sitting in a chair, facing the fire. A few minutes walk, though a pass in the trees and you are in another world. We take a basket lunch, a bottle of wine, and lay on the mossy ground, taking it all in. This inspired us to buy the property from a friend. Us- David, my architect husband and me-Dawn, a professor, psychologist, director of a charity, and an Italian. Oh how I missed the connection we have as Italians; the ambiance of the table, food, wine, companionship, and most of all an environment that lets us RELAX. Woodstock and Saugarties were it! For years we divided our time. Now, we live in Italy, with my family, part of the year, and have another home outside of Albany. My family owns the Castello Ducale Winery in Castel Campagnano Italy and we do have a Facebook page. As life goes, we seldom come to our retreat. We began renting when our trips kept us away, and friends had friends that needed a place. Yes, there are lots of cottages, homes, and apartments. It depends what you are looking for . . . Perhaps, because of my roots, we are more conscious of a nurturing and relaxing space. Hence, if you want, I would love to leave a container of my sauce, a fresh bread (which I make), and a bottle of wine. Yes, you can use our freezer, pantry and food supplies. If we are abroad, we make sure one of our 6 grown children stocks you with enough essentials for a good meal and breakfast.

                  Why the Owner Chose Saugerties:
                  Woodstock attracted us some 20 years back. It's the place where I could go to the market, an organic market, in my PJ's and no one would care. We all live such hurried lives, so filled with 'stuff' and being married to an architect who designs those mega homes that are filled with that stuff, well, we grew tired of the rat-race. The Woodstock mantra is 'Live and Let Live,' and has attracted this kind of ambiance for a hundred+ years. You feel it in your bones, your soul, and in your everyday experiences. It's open, caring, and spiritual. You'll 'get it,' I'm sure. Last year we rented to a couple and this year they are looking for their own retreat.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love our cottage! It's open, vaulted and windows wrap around the front and sides, filling it with light. I'm spoiled now! Each window looks out to something worth seeing. We are perched just high enough to feel private. At night the rooms glow. We are hoping to replicate the open-concept and build a LAST house, nearby, for our retirement. With 6 grown children and 8 grandchildren we have outgrown our cottage! Not the kitchen, open to the dining area and living room, but the bedrooms! We need to sleep a crowd! We never expected them to want to come so often! But they caught the Woodstock mantra too. I love to cook. Yes, I'm Italian. In my 1200 sq ft. cottage, I feel less cramped than in my 40 ft kitchen in my OTHER house! We've fed over 30 people in our cottage! The wrap around decks and wrap around windows, filled with light and nature makes it the prefect perch! We hope you agree.
