The Town of Bethel was brought to the world's attention in 1969 when nearly 500,000 people gathered at Max Yasgur's Farm for 'Three Days of Peace and Music'. The Woodstock festival was held here in Bethel, 5 miles from our lake house, not in the Town of Woodstock.

In 2006, Bethel Woods opened on the original Woodstock site as a state-of-the-art performing arts venue. In early 2008, a multi-media Woodstock 'interpretive' museum opened near the old Yasgur's Farm to complement the concert space, which has hosted the New York Philharmonic, Wynton Marsalis, Diane Reeves, Chris Botti, the Goo Goo Dolls, the Boston Pops Orchestra, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd/Marshall Tucker Band, Bob Dylan, Richie Havens/Arlo Guthrie, Earth, Wind & Fire, the Boston Pops Orchestra, Steely Dan, the Allman Brothers, the Jonas Brothers, Heart, Journey, Cheap Trick and Brad Paisley to name a few. The continue to add top artists each summer / fall seasons. Lawn chair rentals make it affordable for all.

If you can not make the concerts it is still a great place to visit and tour the Woodstock Museum. This museum is quite the unexpected treat. Original artifacts, music, history, movie clips and much more. Group tours given on Saturdays. Easy 1 to 2 hour tour. See the actual festival site, hills and ponds.

Beautiful Home and Lovely Lake

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay. Our goal was to relax and enjoy quality time with one another, and we did just that. This house on the lake is beautifully decorated, and so comfortable with roomy chairs and couches in the living room, with access to an large outside deck and views of the lake. And there's quiet, sunlit reading areas, and a loft retreat with a beautiful view of the backwoods.

We really used the well-stocked, pretty kitchen, and cooked wonderful meals -there was any cooking tool or utensil for the most seasoned cooks. We went to a local diner just once- it was great, but we loved the house so much that we found ourselves preferring to stay in because the surrounding were so pleasant.

We walked the lake, took out the bicycles, there's a game room downstairs, kayaks- there was even a closet with anything we might need for our dog. He also loved it, and we would all recommend this delightful house on the lake. We left relaxed and very,very happy with this getaway. The owners were wonderful to work with and we hope to come back!

The best house in Smallwood

  • 5 of 5

Over the last several years, my friends and I have stayed in Smallwood and the surrounding area for an annual summer reunion. I can therefore say, without a doubt, that Kevin owns the nicest home in all of Smallwood. This palatial house in this serene hamlet of the Catskills boasts several spacious bedrooms, complete with luxuriously comfortable beds, a full kitchen equipped for preparing a bountiful feast, and entertainment to amuse people of all ages for days on end.

Everything was as described, and Kevin made sure to attend to every single request and tend to every question we had. There was ample information provided on the town and the surrounding area which enabled us to have an excellent weekend.

We had an excellent time at Kevin’s home and I will look no further when I seek a place for us to stay next summer.

Lovely time at the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at White Lake. The house is wonderful, comfortable, and has all the amenities you could possibly need for vacation. We made use of the kayaks and fishing gear, grilled, and made fires every night. There's a bunch of stuff to do in the area too but we decided to be lazy and hang around the house only. Overall one of the best and most relaxing vacations we've had in a while. Would absolutely recommend to others. We can't wait to return!

Serenity!! Just a tranquil and beautiful house ! Kevin was an amazing host !!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were at Kevin's house for two night and three days. We enjoyed every bit of it. We had a bin fire , BBQ and walks around the lake. We had plans to do things in the area , but when we got to the house we didn't want to leave. The house was just so warm , comfortable and also relaxing. My kids had a great time enjoying the lake , my wife enjoyed the peace and quite. Ty Kevin !!

Great location. Love the morning view. Clean and lots of stuff to do even if it rains.

  • 5 of 5

Great retreat. Being able to fish at anytime is awesome. The owner aloud us to use the kayaks and my friends have never used them before. They had a blast. Catch and release lake, but I still pulled in 3 great pike, and 2 very nice bass. One night it rained so we used the outside screened in porch for poker. Didn't get wet, and no bugs. I would rent it again and again.
