Overview

About the property

A 3 BD/3 BA craftsman home w/wooden beams, private stream, and hot tub .

An amazing retreat in the woods, situated on 7 beautiful acres, but still only just 5 min from downtown Woodstock. Surrounded by mature trees and gently flowing stream, you will breathe deeply and relax. (GREAT for kids: in addition to the heated pool, we have ping-pong, a basketball net, a doll's house with furntiure!)

You enter this stunning house and view its contemporary, modern style surrounded by windows, high ceilings and magnificent bluestone fireplace. The home is warm, inviting and thoughtfully furnished. It has 3BR, 3 baths, a fully stocked kitchen, fireplace, in-ground heated pool and hot tub, overlooking the stream!

The home is divided into two sections to allow for maximum privacy while still being able to socialize together. The North wing has a sun-drenched 2nd floor bedroom with a brand new queen bed and luxury mattress. There is a cozy living room + den and fully stocked kitchen with large farm table to gather around with friends. Adjacent is an additional seating area, bathed in sunlight from a row of windows, with a new couch that easily unfolds into a queen size bed.

In the South wing is a stunning space with 30' high ceilings contains a second seating/gathering area + a library. There is a ping pong table and sound system for added fun.

In this wing, there is an upstairs Master Bedroom and another guest bedroom downstairs. The master bedroom has a new king bed, luxury mattress and an en suite bath with a jetted tub. The downstairs guest bedroom has two twin beds which can be combined to be a queen size. There is a full bathroom off of this room. It features a private entrance leading to the pool, hot tub and garden.

You will never want to leave!

About Bill Stokes

We are madly in love with our vacation home -- and, judging from our reviews, our guests love it too. Most of the time we live in Manhattan. After growing up in a suburb of Philly, Bill has spent his adult life in Manhattan, working in video production. Rita's story is more exotic: early childhood in India before arriving in 1970's Brooklyn in the same neighborhood through which John Travolta strides in the opening of Saturday Night Fever. Claire is a typical 13 year old girl, in middle school in the big city and obsessed with her iphone, making art and....well, if we say any more we'll embarrass her!

Bill Stokes purchased this house in 2014

Why Bill Stokes chose Catskills

We looked for a quite a while for a house in the region before finding Fern Hollow. You'll immediately see the natural unique beauty of the house when you look at the pictures. The place just had great 'bones' -- unique angles everywhere you look. After renting several houses in the area through VRBO we decided we'd like our own 'slice' of Woodstock, where we could enjoy a quiet setting that also offered tons to do, in all seasons. We hope you will come and share this fantastic area.

What makes this house unique

This is the place to come to for total relaxation: great after a day of skiing or hiking nearby. We're surrounded by woods and stream, with a hot tub, fire places and plush beds. The reclaimed wood beams and the local stones used for the floors and fireplaces were the first things that caught our eye. You can sit at the large dining table, along a row of large windows and watch your children frolic in the pool, surrounded by a lovely deck. And, incredibly, a wonderful stream runs along side the house. GREAT for kids: in addition to the heated pool, we have ping-pong, a basketball net, a doll's house with furntiure!)

Very relaxing home in a beautiful, peaceful setting, close to Woodstock but far enough to unplug.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the layout of the house, the light, the beautiful gardens, woods, stream, hammock, pool, hot tub and all the amenities. Had a very relaxed stay, would definitely recommend and hope to return!

Magical and romantic!

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking place and amazing house! The house was clean and well-equipped, my favourite place was the court with the hot tub, hammock and creek. We really enjoyed every single minute what we could spend there. I never forget the mornings with bird singing and the babble.

Location is perfect, the Catskill Park very close. Bill was very helpful and he answered my questions within few hours.

Exceeded expectation

  • 5 of 5

A group went up skiing and couldn't have chosen a finer home. The living area was cozy and comfortable. The unique lay out of the home provided a nice separation for laughs by the fire place. While the children enjoyed games and a movie in another living area. After a day of skiing, we all enjoyed the hot tub. Bill was readily available and accommodating.

Thank you Bill !!

Beautiful house, great location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two dogs greatly enjoyed staying here. It's so relaxing next to the fireplace. It's also convenient to town so you can enjoy some gourmet dinners. We will likely book here again next year sometime.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a house and we weren't dissapointed. Bill was a pleasure to deal with. The house was beautifully decorated, located in a secluded and peaceful area and had all the amenities needed for both adults and kids. We look forward to going back soon!
