Woodstock cottage description

Sophistication and country charm describes A StreamSide Cottage, a cozy vacation rental cottage nestled in the foothills of the Catskills and offering 1000’ of stream frontage. The perfect destination for that weekend getaway, writing retreat or romantic holiday, A Stream Side Cottage is Ideally located with easy access to Woodstock, Saugerties, Hunter Mountain and H.I.T..S. (for seasonal equestrian events) and a mere two hour drive from the George Washington Bridge.

Arrive at the cedar cottage and open the door to stunning views and walls of glass. Completely renovated, the cottage boasts a fully equipped chefs kitchen, Roche Bobois dining table and chairs, and original art and antiques as well as delightful objects from “ThinkBig!” creator, Bob Malkin.

Your well-mannered dog is welcome at A Stream Side Cottage.

Our upstairs loft with its sloped ceiling is a magical kingdom for children. The trundle bed sleeps two, and there are cozy corners for reading and a desk overlooking the creek where your kids may find inspiration to sit down and write that essay on “Where I spent my summer vacation.” It’s bound to get an “A.”

                        The property was clean and well maintained except we had to shovel the snow off the back deck. Owners are very helpful with info.The open floor plan was great for the doggies to run around. View off the back deck was spectacular. Probably amazing in the spring. Great area for hikers. Bed was too soft and couch was fashionable but not cozy. Would most likely stay again! Alot of good restaurants, Bear Cafe a must.

                        Owner response: We appreciate your feedback and have already arranged for additional snow removal on the deck, although most of our guests don't use the outdoor deck in winter. You are, indeed, a hearty soul, and we applaud you for that. For most guests, the view from indoors on a snowy day with the warmth of the fireplace makes for a cozy, romantic setting. Our queen-size mattress is new, and labelled "firm". We hope you will visit again, and we will be happy to provide you with a less plush mattress pad.

                        We really enjoyed our time at the Stream-side Cottage. Everything was so clean and well decorated. There was a great welcoming basket full of great advice and goodies. I took three kids with me ages 4, 9 and 17. The lofted bedroom was perfect for the older two girls who had a blast in their own space. Barbara and Bob were always available if I needed them and we would love to return again soon.

                        We rent cottages, houses & cabins frequently. Babs & Bob really have this place well thought out, from the heart! They have all the right/good quality kitchen tools and really help you to know the area/neighborhood (Great scenery & view from the house as well). I very much enjoyed doing my morning yoga by the large windows :-), "taking in" the stream. And, important to us: their place was very clean! We really enjoyed our stay, so much, that we stayed an extra day :-). I highly recommend this place! Oh, and! They even had a nice little set up for our dog :-). He enjoyed his stay too!

                        This home is simply beautiful. We arrived in the evening, on a snowy night. When we opened the door, we were amazed at the massive glass sliding doors, overlooking a well lit snow covered stream, it was just breathtaking. Serene, beautiful, and so warm and inviting. The home was stocked with everything you can think of. The bathroom with the claw tub overlooking the water is just beautiful. The beds great, the house was immaculate. We brought along our fur friend, and she had a ball, dog bowls, even dog biscuits awaiting our arrival. The owners left us a welcome basket, which included a bottle of wine, a gift certificate to a great local breakfast place, and a bag of kennel corn, along with a book of local eatery's, Locally there is so much to do, we skied one day, and just enjoyed the house, and the beautiful view the other. What a great house, completely set up, with such attention to detail. A gem of a rental for sure..

                        We cannot recommend this cottage highly enough! The photos do not even begin to do it justice. We spent the most peaceful 4 days here and really did not want to leave. It's a place where you can truly get away form everything and wake up every morning to exclusive views of the running stream. The bath tub is fantastic with a stream view and the decor throughout the cottage is to an extremely high standard. The owners are super friendly and made us feel extremely welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. We loved the welcome goodie basket on our arrival. We will come back here for sure! Thank you so much Bob and Babs x

                        If you are looking for a peaceful, serene vacation with all the comforts of home but with the most beautiful views and close to nature, this is the place for you. The owners have taken meticulous care of the cottage and spared nothing in making it a wonderful retreat! We stayed for over one week and really hated to leave. The wall of glass overlooking the stream, the soothing sound of the water, the soaking tub overlooking the stream, and the beautiful artwork in the cottage makes for a lovely stay. We can't wait to come back next year! Thank you, Babs, for all the wonderful treats you left to make our stay even more special. And Bucky, our dog, enjoyed it as well! :-)

                        What an amazing vacation home! This updated 2 bedroom, 1 bath home had everything we needed to be comfortable for our week away from reality. Our four year old loved swimming in the stream every evening, hiking to the waterfalls just down the way, and roasting marshmellows every night. I must say that my favorite thing about the house was the view from the bath tub. Hello! Talk about relaxation. The deck offers a great place to sip coffee in the morning and read magazines for a lazy day. If you are in to antiques, visit nearby Hudson. It's about a 30 minute drive. Shopping, dining, and massages can be found in this cute town. We look forward to returning to this Streamside Cottage.

What a warm welcome for us, with a wonderful basket of goodies that you offer your guests. You really take the time to make our stay enjoyable, and such detail and information that you've laid out for your guests. You far exceed more than the other homes we have rented with previous owners. Thank you so very much again and I would surely recommend this place to everyone!

                        If you are looking for a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of the City, the stream side cottage is the place to be. Excellent property, very modern and clean, private deck and backyard with trails to the waterfall. Loved it here, the owners were super nice. Highly recommend it.

                      Notes:

                      We give preference to rentals of one week or longer. Ask about seasonal rates. We are close to H.I.T.S. for equestrian events! Off season is great for skiers.

                      We require half the total amount at the time of booking with the balance due thirty days or more before your arrival.

                      Preference given to longer rentals.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: What happens when an arts entrepreneur and creator of 'ThinkBig!' gets together with an Emmy award winning film editor? She reads his personal ad (“FUN, 52, RECENT NYC transplant, sexy, successful, attractive arts entrepreneur, child like, sensitive, open, honest and well therapied...”), They meet, marry and move from Santa Monica, CA. to the West Village...until 9/11. Bob was 'ground zero.' It was time to leave. We fell in love with the Catskill region and ended up buying a home! We've been here full time since 2005.

                      Why the Owner Chose Woodstock:
                      Bob is obsessed with water. We are the owners of The Waterfall House, our first vacation rental home set on Niobe Falls. When the cottage down the road became available, we couldn't say no. After a full year of top to bottom renovation, A Stream Side Cottage, L.L.C., is brand new and ready for you!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Palenville is an unspoiled gem offering the magic of the Catskill Mountains with proximity to Woodstock, Saugerties, Hunter Mountain and the town of Hudson, a destination for art and antique collectors.
