About Dina Kushnir

I fell in love with the land and bought it knowing it needs a lot of work. a year later I am happy to share it with others. I call it 'Olive Oasis' it is an Oasis of Peace from the outside world. I am a movement artist and use Olive Oasis to teach meditation, yoga and personal growth workshops. I see this place also as a retreat space for artists, writers and nature lovers together with family that enjoy indoor outdoor magic.

Dina Kushnir purchased this chalet in 2011

Why Dina Kushnir chose Shokan

I was looking into the Woodstock area for two main reason, one it being close to New York City where I live just two hours away and I am in a different land. The other reason is the beauty of the mountains and the woods with skiing , hiking, swimming and enjoying nature in so many more ways, all available and close by. The peace and quiet drew me and my meditation practice enriched by the land.

What makes this chalet unique

I love the peace and quiet and the view from the back deck, just to sit there read, watch the trees, the deers, and the sun set over the mountain, I also enjoy the fine restaurants and shops of Woodstock area. I hike and walk along the Ashokan Reservoir and cross country ski on the road by my house. Mostly I enjoy the quiet and the changing beauty in every season.

Great Location, Great Accommodation, Everything Worked and just a lovely weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Booking - response was fast, payment was simple and the instructions were detailed and clear.

The Basics - the accommodation was as advertised and everything worked, kitchen well stocked, comfortable beds, pleasantly decorated, spacious & relaxing interior, open, comfortable and well lit living space with plenty of natural light.

The Location - nestled in the woods, plenty of privacy and truly a little slice of "back to nature". A short drive to get groceries plus a small selection of restaurants and diners. The Chocolate store in Shokun is worth a visit too...

The hot tub is worth a mention, lovely to bask in the warm water with a great view with snow all around. There is also a great outside decked area with plenty of seating for warmer months with a small fire pit for chilly evenings.

Overall - would definitely recommend this for a short or longer stay if you want to chill out in comfort, a lovely cozy and friendly environment with everything you need to enjoy staying in or exploring the area.

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a place to get away after the holidays and just chill. This was the PERFECT place to do just that. The house is extremely well equipt and spotlessly clean. There was nothing we were in need for. The house was so welcoming and the vibe just felt good. Yoga mats, yoga/meditation loft, really nice bathroom, comfortable beds, washer and dryer, Gas fireplace- so nice! The outside space was amazing. We did a lot of dreaming of renting this house in the nicer weather with friends. That being said, winter at Olive Oasis is divine. We used the hot tub a ton - really really great. The fire pit got put to good use as well. We sat by the fire with glasses of scotch for an entire day. It was heaven. We were looking for a secluded property. When we pulled up to the house we were initially concerned because there is a house right next door. That concern was quickly put to rest as we realized that the house and the out door space is situated perfectly, so you really don't notice at all the neighboring house at all. The hot tub in on the opposite side of the house, so you have complete privacy. Even at the fire pit, you don't see the neighboring property. I did however think about the warmer months, if a group of friends were hanging out around the fire at night (music, laughter, talking, etc...), if that would be a problem or not? This place is magical. You can't go wrong renting here. We will absolutely be back. Thank you Dina for creating this amazing space and sharing it!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Jessica for your warm words. In the summer it is as magical and more, the land is lush the garden is full of flowers and you can sit out around the fire pit and sing, laugh, eat and drink with friends and family. looking forward to host you again. Dina

Awesome rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great space and we will definitely be coming back. We have rented several other places in the area for getaway weekends and this was by far our favorite. Two bedrooms downstairs and a loft upstairs. Kitchen with a ton of space and a nice island. The backyard was our favorite part though... Hot tub, nice sized grill, stone patio, fire pit. It was nice to kick back and relax in such a great place. The rental process was a breeze and the owner outlines everything you need to know about the house. I would recommend this in a heartbeat. We'll definitely be back!

Awesome place to stay in the catskills!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (early 30's) and another couple (late 20's) wanted to get away to the mountains to enjoy the winter and the snow. When we arrived, we were all pleasantly surprised (it's actually even nicer in person than the photos depict). It was super clean, decorated nicely and was bigger than we expected. There was everything you needed to just relax and enjoy the mountains. It was a very snowy weekend and the house was all plowed and shoveled for us so we didn't have to worry about anything. The yard in the back of the house is so peaceful with all the snow on the trees-now we all want to go back in warmer weather to enjoy the deck/grill/firepit/hottub and green scenery. The drive to the town of Woodstock was very easy and close (about 10 minutes) where there was plenty of restaurants and shops. We were able to get to a popular hiking trail within 15-20minutes drive. I highly recommend this rental for anyone looking into going to the Catskills/Woodstock area.
