Property description

I welcome you to stay in this river stone country house set on 40 private acres of woodlands, streams, and old blue stone quarries.

In less than five minutes, you can enter the Woodstock experience – boutiques, live music, cafes, bookstores, fine dining, retro & antique shops, and art galleries ... or be swimming in Big Deep, basking in the sun at Woodstock’s natural swimming hole. In less than 45 minutes, you can be skiing down some of New York's finest skiing mountains.

This three-story Arts & Crafts home easily accommodates eight adults. Four bedrooms, each with its own individual flare, allow for privacy and romance. One with a private library and writing desk; one with a screened porch; one with grand, arched ceilings; and one with a cozy, dreamy treehouse view of the private forest. Cotton bedding, down comforters, and superior pillows create a perfect ending to any day.

A newly renovated Italian and Mexican tiled bathroom fulfills the needs of those who prefer showers, while a bathroom with a claw foot tub provides a tranquil retreat amongst the treetops of maples, pines, and oaks of the woodlands.

A state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen filled with all the modern accoutrements blends old world with new: marble and butcher block countertops, stainless steel appliances, and place settings for twelve. A dining room, complete with wine, beer, champagne and martini glasses, serving ware, and cloth napkins welcomes all to a long, Arts & Crafts table placed under original, open wood beams.

With a stone fireplace, library, and separate eating area, the large living room draws you into its warmth and hominess. Large windows overlook a landscaped, fenced-in yard – a perfect romp for dogs and children – and a backyard view of a new orchard and traditional bluestone patio.

The walls are decorated with original art and reproductions reminiscent of those artists whose lives were shaped here – water, woodlands, boats, and still-lifes.

Grill steaks, chicken, brats, or veggies on the charcoal and gas grills and serve the succulent food al fresco on a blue stone slab table under towering pines. Roast marshmallows on the fire pit. Sneak a bit of mountain sun on our chaise lounges. Play a round of croquet or volleyball in the green lawns. Build snowmen in the yard. Make snow angels under a velvet mountain sky. Snowshoe through our forest preserve.

For those who must be tied, even on vacation, to the office, there is high-speed internet, a printer, WiFi, and unlimited local and long distance phone calls (U.S. and Canada). High-def television, with TiVo, premium channels, and Netflix.

I am the proud human of two dogs that love to travel with me and I welcome you to bring your well-trained canine family members too! A 2.5-acre fenced in area around the house provides Fido and Trudy ample room to run, sniff, chase squirrels, and lounge in the sun and snow!

I look forward to your stay … and think you’ll want to come back. Time and time again!

Owner info

About the owner: As a writer, I left Woodstock for a few years to do research in Florida. With research behind me, I now split my time between rustic, romantic Woodstock and New York City--the best of both worlds. My two dogs travel with me - and I have been blessed with opportunities to stay at homes that allow pets. I offer the same kindness to those with four-footed family members of the canine persuasion -- with 2.5 acres of a fenced in yard, they will love the home as much as you!

Why the Owner Chose Woodstock:
2091 Glasco Turnpike is an historic river stone home, designed and built in the early 1900s by a woman whose name has unfortunately disappeared from the records. She modeled it after the Arts & Crafts homes of England. It has been in our family for three generations, each leaving an indelible mark on its landscape, walls, décor, and furnishings. The house has nourished many an artist in its day—including the famous illustrator and painter, Anton Otto Fischer (our uncle) and his wife May Fisher, illustrator and suffragette.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Whether you or someone in your party is artistically inclined, I hope that the same muse will envelop you. Be it through writing, painting, playing music, cooking a fabulous meal, or discovering the natural landscape with a new set of eyes.
