About the Property
Open, loft-like space with a full kitchen, a wood stove, and full bath.
This unique house with beautiful views of the Catskills was built and designed as a peaceful get-away with modern comforts, using local wood & stone and an open floor plan. It's quiet and secluded while being a short distance [5 miles] from a major road. The area is known for its abundance of great restaurants, art galleries, antiquing, and hiking as well as rock climbing in the Shawangunks and many historic sites. The Belleayre and Hunter Mountain ski region is within an hour's drive.
Whether you're looking for a quiet, secluded weekend away, or a private & special base from which to venture forth, the Woods Retreat is an experience not to be missed!
Absolutely gorgeous... exactly what we were hoping for!... romantic, relaxing, secluded, private, charming, cozy, ....well done!
We had a truly memorable stay at this enchanted hideaway! Thank you for sharing this space with others — it's magical!
We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful place! ... We found everything we were looking for and even more.
Thank you so much, you know how to do it right! This was perfect.
The Woods Retreat: Take a break from your hectic work-week and escape to New York's scenic Hudson Valley. At the Woods Retreat you'll find a secluded get-away, far from the hectic demands of your work day. Nestled at the top of a forested ridge you'll have views of the Catskill Mountains surrounding the Shokan reservoir to the north-west. You'll find a peaceful, quiet retreat with all of your needs within reach.
The Hudson Valley: Only 2 hours from Manhattan, nearby Stone Ridge & High Falls are popular weekend go-to places for many urban dwellers. There's an excellent selection of restaurants within a 6 mile radius, as well as sophisticated shops and lots of galleries and antique stores. Woodstock, Kingston, [one of the top ten best cities in the country to buy real estate, as reported on NBC's Today Show], are nearby. New Paltz is just over the ridge and Rhinebeck & Hyde Park are directly across the Hudson River. Ulster County has hiking, mountains, skiing, historical sights, rivers, lakes and streams, and more artists per capita than any other New York county.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The Woods Retreat is a secluded haven, far away from the every day yet within reach of everything the Hudson Valley has to offer. If you are looking for an escape from the constant intrusions of your work day, if you would love to hear the sound of true silence, or just the wind whispering through the trees, then a weekend at the Woods Retreat is the very respite you are seeking. We now have internet and satellite TV if you need to stay connected and, while there is cell service most of our guests choose to turn their phones off and let the quiet wash over them!

About: I am an artist and graphic designer who grew up in the nearby hamlet of High Falls. I am passionate about my work and I have a deep love of the property I own with my brother Dan. I studied art and illustration at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan and as much as I loved living on the Upper West Side while I was in school, I came back upstate every weekend to work at John Novi's Depuy Canal House, staying at my Dad's newly constructed house in the woods. I had the best of both worlds!
Why Accord, NY, USA:
My brother Dan and I inherited this property from our father, who designed and built this wonderfully unique retreat. His purpose was to create a secluded, environmentally responsible, sustainable house for his retirement years, (this was in the nineties). Sadly, he was unable to live here on a full time basis, but he enjoyed the blissful seclusion and warm ambiance of his creation for many family celebrations and holiday get togethers.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I have such a close bond to this house and property... once you get to the top of the hill, after traversing the somewhat steep and rather long driveway, you'll see for yourself how truly special it is. If you're looking for peace and quiet,... seclusion without being totally isolated, you will love spending a weekend, a week or even a month at this secluded get away. We do as much as we can to make you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. The spice cabinet is fully stocked, pots and pans, knives,... you'll find a fully stocked kitchen, and our hope is to anticipate your every need. We even make sure there's cream for your morning coffee.
