Property description

Guest reviews:

"Oozes with natural beauty. Being here has been comforting, fulfilling and cleansing."

"I never felt so instantly at home at a vacation rental. You can tell attention has been paid to all the little things that make it so much more comfortable for guests."

"The house is beautifully designed, maintained and was fully stocked."

"What a fantastic find."

"The house is beautiful with very tasteful furnishings and decor. We loved the sauna."

"Sparkling clean and everything we needed to feel relaxed and comfortable. Throughout the home were large glass window panes and wall-length windows, giving an amazing view of the surrounding mountains and woods."

Restore yourself at this lovely vacation home while you explore Woodstock, Phoenicia, the Hudson Valley and the Catskills. House features sauna (dry or wet), plus steam shower, for spa-like pleasures. Short walk to swim pond shared with neighbors -- sun, float and picnic.

Secluded and quiet, surrounded by woods, mountains and hundreds of acres of public land, and visited often by deer and turkeys -- yet just 10 minutes from both Woodstock and Phoenicia, lively, artistic, and progressive communities with great restaurants, galleries, shops, music, and street life.

All modern comforts, tons of outdoor decks and a screened porch. Mostly new construction with architectural character. Lots of windows and skylights. Large modern kitchen/dining area flows into separate, large living room with wood stove. First-floor bedroom carefully designed for privacy with direct access to full bath. Separate small office with window seat. Spiral staircase to airy loft-like bedroom with 1/2 bath and private deck overlooking hillside. Wi-Fi throughout. Cable TV, including Netflix and other Internet-based channels. Refreshing summer breezes, A/C or ceiling fans throughout. Warm and well-insulated in cooler weather.

Located on cul-de-sac between Woodstock and Phoenicia. Yoga and Pilates studios nearby. Hiking trails everywhere, world-class fishing in the Esopus. Bike trails, skiing and charming towns nearby.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: A health writer and a poet, we relish going from city to country and back again, and work hard to make the rental experience a terrific one for our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Woodstock, NY, USA:
Everything about the Woodstock location is great. There is a progressive spirit and a rich array of cultural activities -- art galleries and crafts shops, music venues, film and poetry festivals, outdoor concerts and plays, and much, much more. The restaurants are great, as are the farm stands and food shops. The world-class Emerson spa is less than 10 minutes away. But it's just as easy to skip all that for a nature experience. Hiking trails begin in the back yard, which abuts public lands. The Catskills are rich with hiking, swimming, and biking opportunities. Star-gazing and sunsets can be extraordinary. Set back in the woods, the house is utterly tranquil, yet it is a short drive to civilization at its best

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A loop walk through the neighborhood, up a mountain road to a great vista... a drive to Woodstock for the film festival or an outdoor summer concert.... Swim in the private, spring-fed pond, armed with cooler chest and towels, emerge refreshed and silken. Return home for a sauna, a campfire, a cocktail... Read a novel, watch a movie in still beauty... Breathe deeply... Feel calm.
