About Christine Barker
I live in New York but grew up in Canada and Bermuda, two wildly different climates! When it comes to property I tend to prefer the extremes....extreme country, or extreme city, and that's one of the things I love about Woodstock. It's less than two hours from New York City, but it's a million miles away with respect to it's ambiance, culture and attitude. Woodstock is a fabulous combination of getting away from it all while still having plenty to do. Christine Barker Sales associate Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty Woodstock N.Y.
Christine Barker purchased this House in 2012
Why Christine Barker chose West Hurley
While the eastern side of the Hudson River valley tends toward rolling topography historically suitable for farmland, thanks to the Catskill mountain range, on our side we enjoy skiing, hiking, rock climbing and delicious mountain views. The unique village of Woodstock retains the same quirkiness that attracted the likes of Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin and ultimately the infamous Woodstock music festival, garnering it the title of the 'most famous small town in America'. The pristine beauty of the surroundings inevitably grew an avid following from New York City, so a sophisticated but casual community has evolved. The Town of Woodstock proudly bears the title 'colony of the arts'. There are music concerts, theatre, art galleries, and film festivals along with farm festivals. Each season is as spectacular as the next. The summer is lush and beautiful, and people of all ages enjoy frolicking in the areas many streams and swimming holes, which obviously also afford opportunities for those who enjoy fishing. There is a beautiful golf course golf in Woodstock (and many other local courses), a tennis center in Saugerties (15 minutes away), hiking and rock climbing, as a start. The fall is absolutely spectacular, the foliage can be outrageous, the air cool and refreshing. When winter hits, there's downhill and cross country skiing, snow shoeing....or just relaxing in front of the fire and taking in the beautiful snowy views isn't too bad either. The fresh air and beautiful light that spring brings is absolutely invigorating. The famous luxury brand (no really....Gucci, Dolce Gabana etc) outlets at Harriman are on the way from New York City, and just 45 minutes from the house. If all the activities, shopping and dining activities aren't enough, there's many spas to choose from as well, ranging from world class to small and focused. Whatever season, whatever your bend, whatever the age...there is something for everyone.

Second time staying at this house and again it was just perfect! Gorgeous views, well stocked kitchen, cutest decor and fireplace, and of course ..... hot tub. We hope to visit again in the summer to try out the pool. Management is wonderful, responsive, and helpful. Thanks for a great stay!
Susanna was very helpful, the house was super nice and clean. We had a great time and we'll probably come back when summer is showing up to use the swimming pool!
Stunning property great care takers
Stunning property great care takers
I recently stayed at this house with my wife and my young son it was in a beautiful area with a beautiful view. The house itself was absolutely stunning, and the service from the caretaker was top notch. If we had any issues or even just needed to know where to order a pizza from, the caretaker provided me with anything I needed
Great house, great location, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving
Fun for all ages, well equipped kitchen, beautiful views
Blissful Mountain Getaway
Imagine the joy of a beautiful birthday celebration at Serenity Villa! I was lucky that was mine. This expansive, atmospheric, well-equipped mountain hideaway was perfect for our small group who wanted to relax and enjoy each other's company in the privacy of our own home. Some high points include the massive double-sided stone fireplace; open kitchen perfect for socializing; unobstructed mountain views from the top deck and the master suite (!); private country road for quiet nature walks; and all this under 5 minutes from the center of the universe (Woodstock). This home makes a fine choice no matter which season!
what an amazing house, we were two adults and our two dogs. This house it all, incredible decks with spectacular views to a great spa and pool. The interior of this amazing house couldn't have been any better, the kitchen was great as was the master bedroom and bath. We will definitely be back very soon.
This really is a year round destination. In the summer they are swimming holes and local lakes to explore, in the fall we have the most beautiful foliage and hikes, in the winter months we are located near to NY's best Ski Resorts, Hunter, Belleayre and Windham, and in the spring the area is so green and vibrant. Annual events include the Ulster and Dutchess County fairs; the HITS Horse show; the Woodstock Film Festival; Concerts at the Woodstock Bear Theatre; the Garlic Festival; wine tastings; shows at BARD.
