WOODSTOCK DESIGN WATERFRONT HOUSE
This newly remodeled private waterfront cottage is just 3
minutes from the center of Saugerties, NY and 15 minutes
from Woodstock, NY. Enjoy the best of both towns: specialty
shops and boutiques, delectable food, farmers markets, live
music and glorious scenery.
The 2-bedroom, 1-bath cottage is a spacious, serene and
comfortably elegant retreat. It’s ingeniously tailored for a
romantic getaway, a family gathering, or for two friends
on a shopping-fishing-antiquing-hiking or whatever you-
cook-up weekend. It's roomy enough for a crowd, yet still
cozy and private enough for a revitalizing artist or writer’s
No need to sacrifice urban elegance for country charm,
because here you truly have both. The house is an authentic
1930’s cottage, now airily restyled and open, with the
sophistication of a luxed-out loft. It was the beloved
childhood family cottage of former L.A. stylist Daisy Bolle,
current owner of Hudson Valley fashion mecca DIG, and
Daisy’s smashing taste is reflected in every detail of this
beautiful remodel. The house still belongs to her parents,
Mike and Robin Kramer, longtime owners of the two hottest
clothing stores in Woodstock: Woodstock Trading Post and
Woodstock Design. Luxury and cozy comfort are in this
Each room has been thoughtfully designed and decorated
to invite the outdoors in, surrounding you with resort-
style comfort. Enormous windows and French doors to the
stunning deck provide an all-day display of the renowned
ever-changing Hudson Valley light. Keep them open to savor
evening breezes and glowing sunsets, and then light a cozy
fire in the living room fireplace, which you can also see from
This rare property includes direct access to the Esopus
Creek, famous for summer and winter sports. Take a dip
or launch a kayak from your private dock, onto the smooth
glide of the creek. Once there, let the world slip by as your
stress slides away. Take a photo safari up this Hudson Valley
Nile, capturing shots of nesting egrets, cranes and swans.
Nature provides a daily surprise in this sought-after
Hudson Valley setting, known for its mountains, woods,
and meandering rivers. Poets and painters will find enough
inspiration to last the rest of the year. You might even nab
a prime trophy bass. The gentle lapping of the creek will
serenade evening star–gazing and cocktails on the deck, or
a night of barbeque and games with the kids. Linger over
lattes and the morning papers while you plan the day’s
adventures. You may just decide relaxing on the deck is all
the adventure you need.
When it’s time for sleep, sink into sumptuous king-sized
beds in both bedrooms. One of the two couches in the
living room also folds out into a queen mattress. Linens
are provided for you, including silk-like soft Beechwood
sheets, down blankets and pillows, and fluffy bath sheet-
sized towels laundered with Seventh Generation unscented
detergent. The bath features radiant-heat floors, iridescent
artisan tiles, heated towel racks and a floating vanity.
The pantry is stocked with gourmet basics like organic
coffee, tea, honey and oatmeal, and the fridge holds choice
mustards, bbq sauce and other surprises. Whether you’re a
seasoned cook or just want to whip up some smoothies, the
kitchen — with its gleaming industrial chic appliances and
a five-burner gas stove with convection oven — will satisfy
your appetite for customized, supreme efficiency.
You’ll be cozily secluded, tucked onto a quiet lane in
Saugerties, recently named by Frommer’s as one of
America's 10 Coolest Small Towns. Saugerties — hilly and
rich with hidden treasures like upscale breakfast joints,
antique shops, places to enjoy micro brews or perfect
cappuccinos, is a funky blend of historic Catskill charm and
local artistic flair. For horse fans, HITS summer events are
fast becoming the talk of the town.

4/21/14 BACK TO THE WATERFRONT On August 6, 2001 I wrote a story of us buying our weekend house in Saugerties. All our friends thought we were crazy to buy a vacation house 15 minutes from our house in Woodstock. It was in 1992 and Saugerties was still a town that was down on its luck. There were a lot of empty stores. Our house, only one mile from town, seemed a million miles away with the deck cantilevered over the Esopus Creek. In my story I told of happily buying antiques and chatckas from the stores in town for our house that had been built from a kit from Sears in the 30’s. Fast forward to 2014. Daisy, our stylish daughter, who had spent 15 years in LA, came home with her husband Van and five month old daughter Starla. They stayed in our cottage while they established their boutique DIG in Saugerties. After a year they bought their own house on the creek. This year Daisy and Van decided that our house needed an update. They wanted our house to be totally cool, down to the Jonathan Adler dishes that they sell in their store. With their taste and our credit card the house was totally transformed. There’s a smart TV that gets every channel plus Netflix, YouTube, Face Book and anything else you can think of. There’s a new stylish kitchen and the bathroom is ultra-luxurious with its radiant heated floor and heated towel rack. The small windows in the master bedroom were replaced with French doors to the deck. A larger window was put in the second bedroom that allows a full view up the creek. The wood floors were sanded and a high gloss finish makes them glow. continued below.....
Owner purchased this House in 1992
Why Owner chose Saugerties South
The final touch to remove any signs of the old place was painting the wood ceiling white. Since we bought the house the land across the creek became the Esopus Creek Conservancy Thanks to the marvels of the internet (which didn’t exist when we bought the house in 1992) we are able to rent it out by the week when we are not using it. Brains or luck? We were thinking of buying in Phoencia, which probably would have gotten washed away during Irene. Saugerties has become one of the ten coolest towns in the U.S. I think it was destiny. We loved the water for kayaking, swimming and hearing the water as we doze off to sleep. We always loved sitting on the deck or kayaking watching the changing fall foliage

Beautiful location! Wonderful amenities !
Great spot for a weekend getaway!
This sweet home in Saugerties, NY was the perfect spot to relax and unwind for a few days! It is beautifully decorated and VERY clean. The kitchen and bathroom were both well-stocked (liquid hand soap, lotion, fluffy towels, plenty of glassware/dishes, etc.) and the delicious treats left in the refrigerator were such a special touch! The bed was super comfortable - perfect for sleeping in late:) The view of the Esopus Creek (just steps from the back deck) was so peaceful. Though it was chilly when we visited, we bundled up and enjoyed the view and cocktails from the Adirondack chairs out back. We enjoyed a hot Nutella chocolate at the coffee shop in downtown Saugerties and had a great lunch at the Diamond Mills Tavern nearby. Steve was super accommodating and easily accessible. We truly appreciate those that are willing to open up their homes, to both people and their pets. Thank you so much for giving us a chance to see parts of NY we've never seen. We'd love to come back again!
Wonderful guests! We enjoyed having you stay at the house.
The most relaxing weekend we've ever spent! Will definitely return soon!!!
The house looks exactly like the pictures; very clean, well stocked, beautifully decorated home. The views from the deck and the peacefulness while standing there was amazing!! The house is located on a private street away from any traffic but the shopping area is within a 5 min drive which is very convenient. Highly recommend this beautiful home.
Great Home for a Weekend Get away
We spent 2 nights here, lovely home is a very picturesque location right on the water but still close to everything.The home was well stocked with everything you would need for a weekend get away. We had a GREAT time.
Hudson Valley Getaway
Great quiet, private house with all the modern amenities including a deck overlooking the water. Beautiful trees all around and a short drive to Hudson. Perfect for our needs (two couples).
Truly a perfect location!!
Situated just minutes from Saugerties, with browsing shops and many great restaurants, the home is a delight. A well-stocked kitchen and downy-soft beds are just some of the nice touches that make you feel at home. We toured the nearby Esopus Bend Nature Preserve one afternoon, circled Cooper Lake the next, and ended with climbing one of the top ten highest Catskill mountains the third. Each day ended with a trip to a nearby restaurant for excellent meals. (Miss Lucy was our favorite, with NWHC a close second.) Each late evening was spent out on the deck, just on the banks of the Esopus Creek, listening to owls and the occasional turkey call while watching a near-full moon rise about the trees across the creek.
This location is like a little piece of heaven for us and our 2 dogs. We are already planning a return trip next year.
