Peaceful seclusion: 4 acres in the woods but 1.8 miles from center of Woodstock
I live in Brooklyn but spend many peaceful weekends at this relaxing retreat in the woods.
David purchased this House in 2013
Why David chose Woodstock
I looked for two years for just the right place. I wanted the feel of a cabin but the space, light, and amenities of a modern home. I wanted seclusion but proximity to town. This has it all. In the summer of 2013, I converted what was an artist's studio space into a great room with cathedral ceilings, wood beams, a ping-pong table and a gas woodstove. I also built a blue stone patio in back and added a hot tub on the rise of the back hill. Sitting in the tub, you look over the house at the tall, evergreen trees and the open sky. The interior of the house needed no work -- the previous owner was a weaver and kept the home in meticulous, artistic shape. The knotty pine walls give it great warmth. The picture frame windows make you feel as though you are sitting in a nature painting. And when the mountain stream next to the house is racing, the sound of the water makes you forget entirely about the rest of the world.
What makes this House unique
The home's combination of warmth and seclusion with it's close proximity to town make it unique. You cannot see another house from the property and yet you are only 1.8 miles from the center of town.

Perfect location to Woodstock. Very private and really enjoyed the hot tub. We enjoyed our time here, so relaxing and even saw few a wild turkeys, some rabbits and a few deer.
We stayed here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. The owner has truly thought of all of the comforts of home! The house is very clean and well maintained. We loved hearing the sound of the stream throughout our stay. So peaceful!
And so close to all of the Woodstock activities! Would love to come back here again!
The cabin was everything we hoped it would be and more!
Lovely home inside a forest
A very comfortable stay with my husband and two little kids. Comfortable beds, a fantastic hot tub, cozy living rooms and a nice patio to grill and eat outside in. The house’s layout is not perfectly suited to really little kids—lots of tempting stairs and stone steps so we ended up chasing our two year old around a bit. But the kids had a blast and didn’t want to leave. A truly peaceful place on a beautiful piece of land.
David's home is an oasis of relaxation! Close to town, yet totally private. My wife and I had a wonderful time. Definitely hope to return soon!
A perfect, private getaway with relaxing, cozy spaces, and a short hop into town for added diversion. David’s recommendations for dining and activities were great. We will be back.
