Property description

Charming compound comprised of two houses in the rolling green hills of Bearsville. 2 miles from Woodstock Village Green. There is a brand new heated, saltwater, in-ground 40 x 20 foot pool and brand new hot tub, and for the cooler months a toasty fireplace. Both houses are renovated in a relaxed lodge style. Please Note the guest house only rents out with the main house in the summer months. Unless it is a last min booking. The compound consists of a one bedroom, one bath guest house ( if you have a child the couch is also usable to sleep 3) And a two bedroom, one bath Main house. Go to our facebook page for last min deals on on the whole compound and like us there for updates.

The main house has two bedrooms 1 king 1 queen, both sunny and comfortable with new skylights. The brand new kitchen is easy to use and the new bathroom is a relaxing treat at the end of a day hiking with a deep soaking tub. Woodsy open living room has a fireplace and plenty of seating. lots of little seating spots around the house for private time inside and out. There is a sun room to relax in that leads out onto a suntrap patio with a dining table. A favorite room is the dining room, like an old fashioned Captain's cabin wood-lined and super cozy for the best dinner parties, a room for passing the port and telling tall tales.

The Guest house has a sun filled, well appointed open living room with wall of windows. In the summer keep it wide open to live out doors with ceiling fan. And in the winter very cozy, central heating plus wood-stove (wood provided). Brand new kitchen, dishwasher and Microwave, all stocked with the basics. Spa-like bathroom with a lovely deep tub and a skylight, relax in while gazing at the stars. Sunny bedroom queen size bed. Spacious dining area seats 6. Flat screen TV & new DVD player & iPod dock. fan for bedroom. Mini Library filled with books DVDs and magazines. Brand-new washer & dryer. Hairdryer, Soaps, fresh new linens & towels provided.

Car: Recommended

Perfect for all four seasons. Snowy & Cozy in winter, between 3 ski resorts In autumn stunning leaf color, fresh in spring when all the apple and magnolia blossoms appear and summer is stellar by the 40x 20 pool.

The tree-ringed houses are in the peaceful hamlet of Bearsville. It is perfectly private with out being isolated, spend all day and night in the restful grounds or go into town for dinner or drinks.

No car needed if you want to come up from the city you can bike or walk to dinner and to the village - and the bus drops you in Bearsville with a short walk to the Retreat.

Comfortable, modern furnishings, art throughout the interiors. The property is set back from the road down a long driveway, next to a old-world farm. Fully fenced private property with gate great for kids and pets. Well-behaved pets considered.

The Guest house has a sun filled, well appointed open living room with wall of windows. In the summer keep it wide open to live out doors and in the winter very cozy, central heating plus wood-stove (wood provided). Brand new kitchen, dishwasher and Microwave, all stocked with the basics. Spa-like bathroom with a lovely deep tub and a skylight, relax in while gazing at the stars. Sunny double bedroom. Spacious dining area seats 6. Flat screen TV & new DVD player & IPod dock. AC window unit. Mini Library filled with books and magazines. Brand-new washer & dryer. Hairdryer, Soaps, fresh new linens & towels provided..

Also excellent vegan/veggie options,at Yum Yum or Garden Cafe, or stay home and dine alfresco on the patio under the stars. Barbecue.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: A filmmaker and writer who has long loved the Woodstock area.

Why the Owner Chose Bearsville, NY, USA:
Charm Charm Charm, Built by the neighboring farmer's family in 1930 for an emigre family from Germany. It has a woodsy feel with charming little details. When we first saw it it was the setting that grabbed us, it's not grand but super relaxed and now a little lux with the new bathrooms and kitchens and the addition of the new hot tub and heated saline pool. The Hamlet of Bearsville reminds me of where I went to school in Somerset, England, green hills and dark starry nights. You can come and rejuvenate yourself in the relaxing compound, set in landscaped grounds surrounded by flowering apple and magnolia trees.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
You are in the country with all delicious benefits,from the farm next door where you can walk over in the morning and buy your happy eggs, to swimming holes, hiking, tubing & trout fishing, yet close to everything you would need to have a relaxing time with art galleries, Zagat rated restaurants, a cute little village for a stroll and some shopping and the relaxed atmosphere of a cosmopolitan environment.
