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 Glenford
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.

Beautiful Weekend in the Woods
Spent a relaxing weekend here with a group of friends. The place is beautiful and idyllic with amazing views from the top deck. We had perfect weather as well so the pool and hot tub were great hang out spots. We also went into Woodstock a couple of times, which is only a 10 min drive away. Cool town with some really great food spots. Would book again.
Beautiful home in a beautiful setting
Easy and officiant coordination with a manager and owner.
We spent an amazing weekend with friends at this house. Everyone loved it. The pool and hot tub are some of the highlights. The best part was how secluded we felt while looking out from the living room past the 360 degree fire.
The house is beautiful and well equipped. My family and I enjoyed ourselves I would only recommend that there be more outdoor seating available , the view is breathtaking.
Our family enjoyed our time in Serenity Villa. It is a lovely place- very warm, cozy & rustic, and in a beautiful setting. We all felt right at home. Susanna & Nikki were very responsive to any questions or issues that arose. The Villa is very close to town yet it’s nestled in the mountains where it was quiet & peaceful. I would definitely recommend this lovely place to others.
Fantastic times - great communication by owner!
We came here with a group of 8 people for three nights in the winter. The place itself is VERY charming and has a homely feel. Our group is big on cooking, and the kitchen was fantastically stocked. The decks are fun to roam around on, and the hot tub is modern and large.
The owner was amazing about communication in regards to arrival / departure times, and any small questions we had here and there.
Long story short, would highly recommend to anyone, and looking forward to visit again in the summer when we can use that nice-looking pool!
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.
