About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Library, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Artisan home well-situated in the woods of Bearsville, 5 miles to Woodstock. 3 bedrooms, 2 bath. Quiet, clean, beautiful, fully-furnished, newly updated. Lots of gorgeous land to explore, large deck overlooks private stream. Thirty-foot cathedral ceiling in living room. Fully equipped kitchen and linens provided. Two fireplaces. The house has many windows looking out on the stream, mountains and sky. A place for sitting by the fire, stargazing, rock skipping, writing, entertaining, recuperating. We've had many happy repeat renters over the years. This is a unique and unforgettable home. The Woodstock experience.

Surrounded by five acres of natural forest and wetlands. Walk to Yankee Town Pond. Hikes and organic farms nearby.

Three bedrooms with queen and full beds. Though the house seems well suited for large gatherings, we do not rent it out for events. Please respect the cap of six people only.

We reward great tenants with discounts and special offers. Leave the house how you found it and enjoy an extra bonus on your next visit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1973

About the owner: We are brother and sister owners of this property.

Why the Owner Chose Woodstock, NY, USA:
The house was built in the early 70s by our father and is unique in every way. We spent every summer here as the house was constructed around us. We've kept the feel of the original house but have made important useful updates. Many people say that the house is one of the most truly 'Woodstocky' houses around.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
People love entertaining in this home. It's secluded but not too much so. At night you go to sleep to the sound of the private stream. It's a real getaway. Please be aware that most mobile phones do not receive coverage at the house. Many people see this as a good thing. Our library of book is also a nice feature.
