Property description

Treat yourself to a luxurious and inspiring getaway "Above the Books", just up the stairs from Woodstock’s legendary MIRABAI BOOKSTORE. Above the Books is a newly renovated, spacious and sumptuously appointed 2-bedroom apartment conveniently located a block from the Village Green and NYC bus stop. There's absolutely no need for a car!

Walk to one of Woodstock's many diverse restaurants. Take in a concert at the Kleinert, a performance at the Woodstock Playhouse or an independent film at Tinker Street Cinema -- all just blocks away. Hike nearby nature trails in Woodstock's Comeau Park or take a dip in the Mill Stream, only a 5 min. walk. And there are always bikes for rent at nearby Overlook Bikes for those that want to explore places farther afield, such as Cooper Lake, Wilson State Park or "The Big Deep" watering hole.

Or just relax in the peace and beauty of your graciously appointed private home, featuring a spacious layout, outdoor sun deck, your own private meditation room, luxury linens, an extensive library of books devoted to personal growth, and a blissful array of CD and DVDs that will not only entertain, but inspire. And don't forget: the Hudson Valley's oldest and most complete spiritual/holistic bookstore awaits downstairs for you to browse to your hearts content -- guests enjoy a 10% discount on anything in the store. Woodstock's other fabulous shops and galleries are just steps away.

If you would rather cook in than dine out, use our extensively equipped cook's kitchen. Companions can join in around the kitchen's conversational counter while you cook! Want to eat-in and let someone else do the cooking? Just tell us and we'll let you know how to have magnificent and healthful vegetarian feasts prepared especially for you and delivered to your door. You see, at Mirabai, we've become very well acquainted with the best of the Holistic Hudson Valley and whom to recommend for these services.

We’ve even prepared an exclusive Mirabai Insider's Guide to holistic services in the area -- both in-room and off-site. You'll know exactly where to go and who to contact for the best yoga and pilates instruction, bodywork, astrological and tarot readings and any other services to awaken your mind, body or spirit.

Other amenities include a washer/dryer, 600 thread count sheets, fluffy towels and luxurious robes for you to wrap yourself in. We also provide wireless broadband Internet access, phone service with free local calls, water purification, air conditioning (seasonal) and off-street parking. We've even added pure essential oils to the paints used in the interiors to complete your sense of well-being.

So the next time you're visiting our area, we invite you to experience the tranquil space that awaits above Mirabai. Rest, relaxation and renewal. That's what Above the Books is all about.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Hi. Our names our Jeff Cuiule and Audrey Cusson. In 2000, we left our lives and careers in NYC to purchase Mirabai Books in Woodstock, NY -- a shop dedicated to Personal Growth, Eastern Philosophy, Metaphysics and Healing.

Why the Owner Chose Woodstock, NY, USA:
A few years ago we transformed the space above the shop (our initial home here) into a vacation retreat that we call "Above the Books". It's our hope that the space reflects the serenity and lush beauty that we've created in the store below. Woodstock is unique among small towns in its dedication to the arts, alternative thought, natural beauty and spiritual fulfillment.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Above the Books is a tranquil, lushly furnished property conveniently located in the heart of town. Your time here will be both relaxing and magical. There's a fully equipped kitchen, meditation space, outdoor deck and tons of books, CDs and DVDs for your enjoyment and relaxation. Woodstock's many shops, galleries and eateries are literally steps from your door. If that's not enough, come down to browse our shop's shelves and enjoy a 10% discount on any books or merchandise that you purchase. And if you're interested in holistic services, our insider's guide lists our recommended practitioners, most of whom will come right to you at the apartment.
