Space 2,400 sq ft
Property type chalet
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-7

Private post and beam style chalet tucked way back in the woods with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Minutes from stores and attractions yet so wooded and quiet. Endless amount of things to do in the area all four seasons. Drive back the long gravel drive to this wooded oasis. The many decks and porches will beckon you to sit and relax but the saline pool will beg you to dive in. Inside you'll think you just stepped into a log cabin. So much beautiful wood work and soaring ceilings. The floor to ceiling fireplace will call out for a blaze but the chefs kitchen will distract you and get the taste buds working over time. The down stairs bedrooms are sizable and very comfy and there are two full baths on this level. Travel up the spiral stair case and check out the third bedroom which is a master. Once you slip into that two person jetted tub the cares of the world will slip away.

About Bruce Stalnaker

My husband and I purchased this property so many years ago. He's gone now and I don't use it as much as we did. Think it's time to let others enjoy it!

Why Bruce Stalnaker chose Saugerties

We needed an escape from our hectic city lives and jobs. This place has helped to keep us sane over the years.

What makes this chalet unique

Plenty of privacy, very comfortable layout, killer kitchen, nice pool. Plenty to do nearby. Fireplace.

great secluded, country retreat in the Catskills

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained, including the refreshing pool. Cable TV and internet were a huge bonus that you sometimes don't find in such a secluded property. The property manager was extremely attentive and helpful, but we didn't have any issues with our stay. It IS a few minutes from any main stores; about 15min off the NY Thruway. A great, peaceful retreat for "getting away" for a while. It served our needs perfectly. We would definitely consider this property again if/when we come back to the Saugerties/Woodstock area.

Exactly what we needed for our family getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in the house. The house has a great welcoming vibe! The deck and the pool made for a perfect long-weekend-getaway! There was a bit of miscommunication that was handled incredibly well and quickly by Bruce. We are so happy we found this place we will definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: It was such a joy to have you folks here and we hope to see you again someday soon! We had forgotten to tell you that the owner charges for propane to heat the pool and we thank you for being understanding when you learned that after the fact. We paid more than 1/2 of the bill to be fair and we're very sorry for the surprise!! Respectfully, Bruce Rental Manager

This was our second stay and we are looking forward to our third! Peaceful and relaxing. A heaven in the woods. The management couldn’t have been more attentive.

Absolutley spectacular week, great house and pool and really attentive manager

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week away from NYC. Easy to get to, a great location and very quiet. The house was exactly as described, wood inside and out. Not a show house, but clearly a loved and lived in place, with everything we needed. The pool is great, deep enough to jump in at one end and shallow at the other and heated! Bedrooms are all a good size, and we had 3 couples staying in comfort (one couple per room), each with their own bathrooms. Everything worked, really well, fast wifi (I'd guess 50MB download, 5MB upload), central A/C worked great, and we had 90 degree days. Kitchen had every kind of pots and utensils we needed, and more than enough plates and mugs. Dishwasher, washer/dryer/ gas BBQ, cable TV, all great. The manager was incredibly attentive, checking in via email every day, and preempting everything we needed. Our little 9lb dog loved the week as well. We had a great time with absolutely nothing to complain about. We're planning on coming back.

Perfect week in the country

Thank you for the wonderful vacation. The house was perfect for us and our dogs. The grand-kids loved the pool. And the peace and quiet was good for the soul.

Owner's Response: We're so happy that you folks had a great time here. The pool is wonderful as is all the decking around it. Home sits back in the woods by itself. Very peaceful spot. I do hope that we're lucky enough to host you again someday soon! Respectfully, Bruce Rental Manager

Lovely Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in July and were very pleased with the property. It is a lovely chalet type house with a large swimming pool surrounded by a deck. The house was well appointed and comfortable, and was pet friendly. It is nicely secluded in the woods and the house was spotless. We would highly recommend this house but not for the last week in July, because we want to come back next year!
