About the Property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 4

This Historic Gristmill of the late 1800’s is situated on two streams, the Cooper Lake stream and the Sawkill Stream in Woodstock hamlet of Shady, NY. It is only 2 hours from NYC and only 2.5 miles to the center of town of Woodstock. The Bear Café, Bearsville Theater and Cub Market are close by.

Parking is on-site.

The intimate converted Mill, has been restored while keeping all the original wood inside. The added wooden cedar deck jets out hovering over the Sawkill and when you look down from the deck you see water rushing towards you. Every year the stream is stocked with trout so one can even fish for trout from the deck, some will be able to see the Blue Heron airborne making its way up the stream also looking for trout.

Enter the Mill House directly from the deck. Inside the floor to ceiling windows facing the stream will seem as if you are still outside in the heart of nature, but experiencing the inside. How wonderful and effective it will all seem. The interior was saved by insulating the outside so you see the exposed beamed ceiling and doors of the original Gristmill. The ambiance is well worth it. A large, brown velvet down couch is a great place to relax on in front of the gas burning iron stove that sits on a unique tile hearth. The 1200 square foot chestnut flooring has a welcoming yellow-orange glow, the lighting is unique and bright, the unique furnishing comfortable. The open and intimate space is equipped with Dock and Bluetooth stereo, DVD player, Wi-Fi and cable TV. The flow through space is open from the kitchen to living room. A see through open-stairway leads to the upstairs bedroom and private ½ bath.

The kitchen has flame cooking {there is a charcoal grill outside}. It is fully equipped with coffee maker, toaster oven, blender and of course tableware and cooking utensils. The wood block kitchen counter is great to serve from, eat on or prepare food. There is also a table with four chairs in a great spot next to a large glass panel.There you can eat, talk or play games as you look up the stream. Back in the kitchen area behind green doors with see-through hearts is a large refrigerator and a stacked washer and dryer. There is also a long work table near kitchen.

A small hallway leads to the bedroom and full bath. This peaceful quite room has a queen sized bed and is tucked into a cozy intimate room with raised ceilings. This room is next to the full bathroom.

An all-white bright roomy bathroom is designed with a wall of glass facing the stream and glass door leading to the deck. Fitting an old mill, the antique bathroom fixtures are interesting and charming.

Up the stairs is the surprise attic bedroom. It is as different, cozy and restful a place you will ever be. Original old wood on the A shaped attic ceiling is like being in a faraway retreat in the middle of nowhere. The queen size bed is situated like an altar, right under a window at the far end of the room. With the window open you will hear the stream below. A few chairs are for quiet resting or reading. There is a closet in the small but sweet half-bath and there are always plenty of linens and towels. You will love it. A known clothing designer once created a cool line of clothing for Target at this Woodstock Historic Grist Mill.

Under the deck {which has table and chairs}, there is a beautiful stone patio sitting along the streamside with steps going down to it. There is also has table and chairs where you might use the grill. Walk along the streamside private path there are other look out sites and you will come to a waterfall. In the summer you can jump in the swimming hole and or sit on the rocks and large boulders and have lunch. In the winter you can have the awesome view by the waterfall of dripping icicles coming down the steep mountain side on the other side of the stream.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

About: I grew up in Woodstock and moved to NYC to follow a music career . I became a record producer to many name artists. I then moved back to Woodstock and followed the family business and now live in the hamlet of Shady.

Why Woodstock, NY, USA:
This is the original mill built in the 1800's. The inside is the original wood and in 1990 a shell was built all around so it could be isolated . To be able to jump in the stream, hang out on the deck and just have a great vibe is what I thought was special.

The Unique Benefits at this Mill:
Water, waterfalls, fishing, Mt. views, 2 miles to the center of town, 1 mile to the Bear Cafe, deck, great vibe, I think the pictures really show what makes the Mill so unique
