About the property

1,000 sq ft cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 bath, sleeps 2-4

This lovely Romantic Zen Cabin was featured in both NY Magazine and The NY Times as the spot to go to when vacationing in Woodstock.

Secluded, romantic, Japanese-styled designer's cabin is located down a private road, surrounded by acres of beautiful woods, with a small stream running down the hill beside the cabin, the perfect venue to become acquainted with nature.

This large non-Smoking cabin is over 1,000 sq ft and features wonderful views of the woods from every window. It has beautiful Asian slate floors, a cool slate shower and marble bathroom and the romantic claw foot bathtub in the living room which faces the deck and stream. The spacious bedroom has a writing desk with an old fashioned typewriter and is the perfect place to become inspired. The living area is furnished with an extremely comfortable futon sofa which folds out into a queen bed. The multimedia area, has a flat screen TV with basic cable channels as wifi is accessible throughout the cabin.

Wildlife abounds in the area, white-tailed deer (drive carefully at dusk), wild turkey and baby black bears are up and about. Not to mention the fox, squirrels and the dozens of species of birds that makes exploring this property very rewarding.

Only 1.7 miles to the center of Woodstock's famed shops cafes and Zagat rated restaurants. Take in a concert at the Kleinert, a performance at the Woodstock Playhouse or an independent film at Tinker Street Cinema. Hike nearby nature trails on Overlook Mountain, Poets Walk Park or the Ashokan Reservoir. This really is a year round destination: swimming holes abound in the summer, foliage in the fall is incredible, New York's best ski hills are only 30 minutes away for the winter, and the spring is simply magical. There are world class spas and restaurants, and fun shopping in the quirky town of Woodstock, America's most famous small town and birth place of the musical revolution of 1969.

About Christine Barker

I've enjoyed a diversified life with careers in Environmental Science, entertainment, real estate and design. I live in New York but grew up in Canada and Bermuda, two wildly different climes! When it comes to property I tend to prefer the extremes....extreme country, or extreme city, and that's one of the things I love about Woodstock. It's less than two hours from New York City, but it's a million miles away with respect to it's ambiance, culture and attitude. Woodstock is a fabulous combination of getting away from it all while still having plenty to do.

Christine Barker purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Christine Barker chose Woodstock

Serenity and Privacy. Secluded yet not isolated. Just perfect! It has so many unique features, which include a claw foot tub located in front of the gas burning stove. Take a soak whilst enjoying beautiful wooded scenery. A spacious bedroom with writing desk (and even a typewriter if you want to feel inspired). An outdoor desk with grill and plenty of room to just relax.

What makes this cabin unique

Hike the amazing Overlook Mountain just up the road! Visit or hike up to the world-renowned largest traditional Tibetan Monastery in the US built into the mountainside.

Take a bike ride along the winding creeks and back roads, or explore the colorful local farmers and flea market in the center of town.

Find the numerous swimming holes around the area. This really is a year round escape, enjoy the wonderful fall foliage and enjoy skiing in the winter months.

Cozy, quiet, relaxing and stress free atmosphere.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed ourself in this beautiful cabin.

It is very close to town, we got to enjoy cafes and restaurants.

The location is secluded enough and very quiet, which was needed for a retreat away from NYC, were we come from.

We recommend this cabins to others.

Peaceful, comfortable getaway in Woodstock

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Zen Cabin! It's not always easy to find a place that's the right size for a couple, without paying for more space than you need. The Zen Cabin was the perfect size, with a comfortable, sunny bedroom that looked out into the woods, and a spacious living/dining room area. We loved sitting out on the little deck and watching birds, chipmunks, red squirrels, and the occasional deer forage in the trees and shrubs surrounding the cabin. The cabin is surrounded by trees, so it feels nicely secluded. And yet it's only a couple miles to Woodstock, just a 5-minute drive to great restaurants like Oriole 9, the Bear Cafe, and many others. It's also very close close to some great hiking, including the Comeau property and Overlook mountain. The Cabin was simply but comfortably furnished. Definitely a great vacation spot for a couple or small family. We can't wait to go back!

Great Location, Peaceful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin location was great. Somewhat away from main roads, surrounded by woods which meant our dog could roam freely and explore (apologies to the house up the road who's party it "crashed") without us worrying.

The cabin itself was very nice inside. It was clean, well appointed and well presented. The only thing it lacked is an oven as my wife likes to cook.

The overall location is great... very close to Woodstock and in easy reach of a load of great hikes.

We would recommend staying there. A perfect weekend getaway from the city for a couple of nights

Exactly what was needed

  • 5 of 5

Zen Cabin was exactly as I expected. It was very clean, cozy, with great entertainment equipment. The porch was perfect for sitting out and enjoying the birds and passing deer. My dog and I loved the peace and quiet, and walking up and down the local road feeling like we were the only ones around. I totally recommend this cabin for an easy, quiet escape.
