About the property

Welcome to Woodstock and our family oasis! Located on a private road, at the base of Overlook Mountain, on more than 5 secluded, wooded, acres. Conveniently situated less than five miles from the artsy and fun Town of Woodstock (and five miles in the other direction, you'll find the great Village of Saugerties) - near all restaurants, bars, hiking/trails, swimming, horseback riding, skiing/tubing, etc.

Pulling up our blacktop driveway (perfect for bikes, scooters and skateboards), you'll see our classic log home, surrounded by trees and plenty of yard to play in. You'll find great hiking trails (summer or winter) directly from our backyard (you can make it to the top of Overlook, or stay closer to home and hike to 'secret' waterfalls.) Nature is quite literally at your doorstep.

The private heated, saltwater pool, deck and screened in porch allow you to enjoy our warm months to their fullest. An outdoor fire pit is great in any season - as is the charcoal grill.

Our home is newly renovated, with a modern yet welcoming interior and an open floor plan. The bedrooms are ideally situated for guests and kids. Brand new eat-in kitchen (with a huge peninsula for eating and cooking) opens to a large great room, featuring soaring ceilings and beams, enormous picture windows, a brand new wood burning fireplace with beautiful ceramic tile and dining table. From the dining/kitchen, the patio doors open to a deck and the private and secluded swimming pool. From the deck, you can access the screened in porch, perfect for summer lunches and evening cocktails.

A large master bedroom, with large picture windows, features a king sized bed (a Tempurpedic mattress) and a big, brand new bathroom, with heated floors, and a walk-in shower with a bench. On this side of the house, you'll find the playroom, complete with toys, books, a TV/DVD player (and a lot of kids DVDs), arts and crafts, a play kitchen and more. The playroom also has a comfortable sofa that pulls out into an equally comfortable queen-sized sofa bed.

On the opposite side of the house (and 'closeable' via pocket doors once the kids are asleep!), you'll find a brand new hall bathroom, also with heated floors, and a large bathtub/shower. The guest room has a queen sized bed with a Tempurpedic mattress. Across the hall is the kids room, featuring low-loft twin sized bunk beds (with a removable ladder) and a twin sized trundle bed - easily sleeping 3 children. The kids beds all have organic mattresses.

Ideal for families - the floor plan is conducive to running around in the cold winter months, and open to backyard and summer living in the warmer. In addition to the kids room and playroom, there are plenty of toddler friendly utensils/bowls/plates. A high chair, booster seat, pack n' play, bouncer and baby swing are all available upon request.

Close to HITS, Hunter Mountain and all other Catskill and Hudson Valley activities, our house is a perfectly situated home base for whatever you're looking for (or, of course, doing nothing except relaxing!) The garage (and its side entrance) is perfect to keep your wet skis or your muddy boots dry and warm.

Maximum number of adults permitted is 6 - three to four children are acceptable (some exceptions permitted based on age.) We don't rent to anyone under 27 - but the house is also ideal for couples without children, or just the two of you looking to get away for a romantic and quiet week. No parties, except for yourselves! House and crate trained dogs permitted on a case by case basis, with an additional rental fee.

The house is stunning and beautifully renovated and meticulously maintained, with a great location at the base of Overlook Mountain, accessible to hiking trails and short drive into the town of Woodstock and all the shops and restaurants it has to offer. Our two toddlers were in heaven with the fully stocked playroom, pool and outdoor playground. We had some wonderful nights sitting out by the outdoor fire pit telling stories and roasting s’mores. Maggie is a friendly and gracious host who takes care of all the little details that allow you to just start enjoying your getaway the moment you arrive at the house. We would love to return!

Wonderful, fully stocked home in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Maggie's place for a weekend in Woodstock and had a great time! The heated pool was delightful, our 1yr old son had a blast with all the kid toys / kitchen set, the living room / kitchen is stunning, and you are a short drive to lots of hikes, restaurants, and other activities. We'd definitely stay again and it was the perfect escape from the city!

The house is super chic and cozy at the same time. It is perfect for families (we have a 2 and 4 year old) -- they loved the bunk beds, swimming in the pool, playing in the kids tv room and being outdoors and seeing deer! The house was clean, well-maintained and everything we were looking for. Highly recommend!

Beautiful, serene property and home

  • 5 of 5

The home is completely renovated, cozy, clean and well-suited for a family. The kitchen is well-stocked with whatever you need to cook and there is a great open layout. We also loved that the home is close to town!

Beautiful, kid (and adult) friendly rental surrounded by nature

  • 5 of 5

This property surpassed our expectations. We were two families (4 adults and 3 kids under 4) and could not have asked for a better rental. The property looks exactly like the pictures. You can tell that the owners use this property themselves because everything is functional and the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms are fully stocked. There is a nice balance between living in nature and being close to a lot of fun activities. That being said, the heated pool, trampoline, kids play area and hike behind the back of the house made it so that we didn't need to leave the property if we didn't want to. The only (small) thing missing was a propane BBQ but we made due with the charcoal BBQ. Would definitely come back to this rental again next year!
