Great for a Group

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, even for a large group... plenty of bedrooms, foutons and couches to accomodate everyone, as well as two tables for eating. The center of town is only a five minutes drive away but the house is not itself located in a busy tourist area...very quiet! There are lots of small shops and little restaurants to enjoy in the town.

Wonderful Farm house close to town and full of charm!

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end this was a very easy process with the owner.

The home is very close to town and suited my groups needs very well.

Most evenings we all sat in the living room chatting around the fireplace.

Cozy and comfortable without stress.

I will for sure rent this house again next year - and some of my friends already inquired about how to rent through the year.

Walking distance to the Bear Cafe.

Quiet, cozy, affordable.

Thanks again!

A wonderful house for large groups/families

  • 4 of 5

This house was ideal for our large group that included three families with small children ranging in ages from 2 months to 7 years plus a few couples. There was plenty of space for everyone, and the house was very comfortable for all. There was plenty of space for everyone at the table for meals, and we especially enjoyed the fireplace in the evening. The owner was very easy to work with, and the caretaker was wonderful as well. All in all it was a perfect weekend - thank you so much! We hope to return.

Great house, plenty of room for large groups.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for 5 days while our kids were showing at HITS. It was a great find!! Plenty of space for everyone, clean and very easy to get to. The owner was very fast and easy to work with and we loved the little town of Woodstock. We will be booking this house for future horse shows.

Excellent location and very nice accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This house was ideally located for our family and friends coming from New Jersey 1.75 hours, Philadelphia 3 hours, Capital District of NY 1.5 hours. It is an easy and direct 10 miles off of the NYS Thruway coming from the North.

The house was very adequate for our group of 12-14 adults with total privacy for four bedrooms and semi-private for 2 others. 2 bathrooms served us well. The house was very clean and ready for our weekend stay.

We prepared all of our meals on-site and with the exception of needing large cooking pots and a good knife (we brought them from home) the kitchen was well stocked with all that was necessary for a full meal prep and sit-down dinner for 14.

Great hiking trails, streams for trout fishing and the Village of Woodstock close by kept us busy. Porch sitting was our main event as we watched deer cross the road and a lone bald eagle entertain us as he hovered overhead.

We will definitely return if the opportunity presents itself.

Charming and wonderful home for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Our group absolutely loved this house! There were 13 of us and the moment we walked in everyone was commenting on how much they like the decor, style, and old-fashioness of this spacious rental. We spent most of our time in the living room playing board games, watching movies (blu-ray player was available), and cooking in the kitchen (modernized). The house was already warm when we walked in! There were also new large load laundry machines. We forgot to use the fireplace but wish we had! We were very very comfortable and highly recommend this place to any group.
