About Cristina Enriquez-Bocobo

Cristina runs a design enterprise and Michael has a bespoke innovative tech company in NYC. We have a young son Henri, who spends his time outdoors in the streams, ponds, sand beach, and playset area on the property. He also has a huge play room with a 60' TV, play table, in the main house where he spends his indoor time.

The farm is also used as an artist-in-residence site and offered to artists who have been affiliated with our various art boards. We would like to expand this program to include workshops by the artists for the community and for the local schools. By renting the farm we can realize some of these goals and can continue to explore other creative community-based projects.

Cristina Enriquez-Bocobo purchased this estate in 2007

Why Cristina Enriquez-Bocobo chose Shokan

Originally settled by the Reverend Samuels in 1825 as a large farm, it is ideally situated on a flat ridge of the mountain with plenty of sunshine and several mountain streams which originate on the property and feed the Ashokan reservoir. It borders over 100 acres of protected watershed land and will forever remain pristine.


Please check listed rates and updated calendar before contacting us and for accurate rental information.

What makes this estate unique

Fantastic location. Only 90 miles from NYC from I87, the estate is at the epicenter of the Catskills and all the fun and adventure that the area has to offer. Terrific for families to gather for hiking, fishing, skiing, art viewing, and world class music festivals. It is surrounded by state parks that offer hundreds of acres of outdoor sports both on land and water.

Close enough to NYC that we can enjoy relaxing here and commute to the city for work during vacation weeks.

Our extended family spent a delightful week at Cocofarm this Fall. This visit, as with our two previous stays, was perfect in all respects. The house and barn are spacious and welcoming. The kitchen is expertly equipped and a joy to work in. And the peaceful setting, deep in the woods, is a rare treat. The owner is responsive at all steps of the rental process and accurate in all information exchanges. The needed stores, services, restaurants, and coffee shops are within convenient driving distances. And at the end of each stay, we look forward to the next year's visit.

Beautiful place to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

First, the location is excellent and close to Woodstock where there is an excellent butcher shop. Second, the house is amazing, spacious, and comfortable. We were 5 adults and 4 children, and we never felt crowded. In fact, we were all able to enjoy time together in the great room after dinner, but we were also able to have the children do movie night in one room while we watched our movie in another. Lastly, the property is just beautiful. We spent almost every evening dining outside. The children had a lot of space to run around. This was perfect for what we wanted out of the weekend.

Perfect place to spend few days of relax and fun with family or friends

  • 5 of 5

I took my family, that was visiting from abroad. I thought that it would be good idea to spend few days all together out of the city and I could not find a better place. At the farm both kids and adults had such a good time. Kids were entertained all the time either playing or swimming out side or doing any of the activities or games to play inside. At the same time adults where reading a book at the living room, drinking a glass of wine at the deck, doing sports or all cooking together at the spacious kitchen with view to the garden.

The house has a very useful manual with all the indications you may need. Anyway Cristina is very responsive to answer any question about the house or about the area in general.

I would definitely recommend this property for a big group.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. Recent guests found the same experience. "Peaceful, quiet, green, beautiful – we had a great Memorial Weekend at CocoFarm! The house was very spacious for our group of 8. The 4 bedrooms, warm and comfortable; the 3 bathrooms, modern and charming; and the living spaces, plentiful, yet cozy. We used the deck and fire pit, and even played lawn games outside. We could have spent all our time on this beautiful property! Trips to Woodstock town and the Kaaterskill Falls were icing on the cake. Cristina was a great host - very helpful and accommodating. We would highly recommend CocoFarm. Marisha"

Beautiful house in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific weekend at Cocofarm. It was the perfect house for a few families- plenty of space for everyone to be, a huge living room and fire place where we could all gather to play games and hang out and room for the kids to play. The property is great and the kids all had fun fishing in the pond and playing on the swingset. The best part was that it is completely equipped for renters but totally feels like home- having rented other houses I think this is hard to do but Cristina has done it. It's so comfortable and well stocked - it felt like a home away from away as soon as we arrived.

Cristina is very responsive and helpful. We enjoyed Woodstock and a trip to the Emerson Spa, everything was close by and most of the adults in our group are runners and we were able to put together some great (hilly!) running loops.
