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 beautiful, spacious and sumptuously appointed 2-bedroom apartment conveniently located a block from the Village Green and NYC bus stop and walkable to Woodstock's many restaurants, shops and attractions. 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, crisp linens, an extensive library of books devoted to personal growth, and a blissful array of music 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 in the store.

Hi. Our names are Jeff Cuiule and Audrey Cusson. In 2000, we left our lives and careers in NYC to purchase legendary Mirabai Books in Woodstock, NY -- a shop dedicated to Personal Growth, Eastern Philosophy, Metaphysics and Healing, currently celebrating its 30th year in business.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Owner chose Woodstock
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.
What makes this Apartment unique
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.

Absolutely adorable, immaculate, charming, efficient, and convenient! We hope to stay here again!
Our brief stay at Jeff and Audrey’s apartment was perfect! We needed some R & R desperately so really winged this one and it was just what we wanted. They were easy to communicate with making it super easy. Marabai is such a gem of a store right in the center of town and the calm relaxing feel of it is just as present in the apartment above. I made a few purchases and Audrey who is just lovely, gave us a discount! We hope to be invited back! Loved it!
Wonderful, Spacious, Well Equipped Retreat in The Heart of Town
My fiancé and I stayed at Above the Books 3/29/18 - 4/1/18. This was our second time staying there. We love how spacious, clean, and comfortable everything is. The apartment is really private. It is located above the best books/metaphysical/gift shop (with a lovely little meditation spiritual seminar/workshop space) in Woodstock. Because the store is closed at night, there isn’t any concern of disturbing anybody below when you are enjoying your time in the apartment at night. The shop opens around 11am, so you can hear voices throughout the day - but that’s not a big deal for us since we are usually out and about all day long. We are both very private people and typically prefer a private house/cabin/cottage in the woods - but Above the Books gives us that private feeling, right in the heart of town. We can walk everywhere in town and all our other favorite spots in the surrounding area are just a short drive away. We have stayed at about a dozen different rentals in the Woodstock area and this little gem has become our favorite one! It is our preferred Woodstock vacation rental from now on. Jeff and Audrey are incredibly gracious and very attentive/responsive hosts - they will bend over backwards to make sure you are comfortable and that you have everything you need! Thank you Jeff and Audrey for another wonderful stay! We look forward to seeing you again this Autumn! Cheri & Aaron (Baltimore, MD)
Nice, no issures or concerns.
Tidy apartment, exact center of village, would stay again.
We love staying here
This is the third time that my family and I have stayed in this apartment. We love it. The apartment is spacious and has a wonderful peaceful feeling. It has everything that we need ready for us when we walk in the door. The master bedroom has a meditation nook and access to the balcony. It is a great green space in the summer and a wonderful winter view. the second bedroom has windows overlooking the balcony and great black out shades for privacy. The bathroom is large and well stocked, and I love that there is a stacked washer and dryer. The kitchen always has coffee and every items I ever look for. The other feature that we love about this place is the location! Maria's is two steps from the door and Bread alone is right across the street. When we don't feel like cooking, there is plenty of good food to feed us. Jeff and Audrey (and everyone at Mirabai) are welcoming and make everything easy. This is our go to place when staying in Woodstock.
Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
My friend and I booked this apartment a week before New Year's. We felt lucky to have discovered Audrey and Jeff's place. The warmth and kindness from the hosts was lovely, the location was ideal and the apartment itself was spacious, private, comfortable and clean . Audrey and Jeff are generous and seemed to anticipate our needs before we knew we had them! If you're looking for a place in the heart of the Woodstock town, walk-able to everything, this is the place for you. Thank you, Audrey and Jeff!
Super comfortable and convenient
If you’re going to Woodstock meditative getaway, look no further. This place even has a meditation room. 🧘�♂️ The apartment was centrally located in the heart of Woodstock and within walking distance of pretty much very thing there. The owners thought of everything to ensure our comfort: everything from an audio/video and book library to some bottled water and organic chocolate to greet us. I highly recommend this place and would stay there again.
