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 to the same neighborhood through which John Travolta strides in the movie "Saturday Night Fever". Claire is a typical teenager, in high school in the big city and obsessed with her iphone and....well, if we say any more we'll embarrass her!

Bill Stokes purchased this house in 2014

Why Bill Stokes chose Woodstock

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 has 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

WE WORK HARD TO INSURE YOU HAVE A GREAT STAY. 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 place 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!)

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We went with two other couples for the weekend...the place is perfect, everyone had their own bedroom, and privacy since the three bedrooms are all on opposite sides of the house. the location is perfect to hop into town and the place itself if spectacular, plenty of room to lounge as well to cook and have dinner either outside or inside. The pool, and hot tub were a game changer!!, and the sound system in the house is fantastic. without a doubt we will definitely be back. oh! and they allow dogs - fenced in yard! and lots of places to walk the pups.

A unique property, perfect for a group of close friends or family

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place. It is a great location, close to town but it feels far away from it all.

Bill was a great host and was easy to communicate with.

Makes for a wonderful autumn stay and would be even better in the summer.

Overall, a great experience.

Cozy Woodstock Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay with our two dogs at the cabin. Fenced in backyard for the dogs to run around. Very convenient location for checking out the local area. Plenty of great shops and restaurants all within 10 minutes. Spacious stream-side plot of land in the woods tucked away at the end of a private driveway makes for a nice secluded spot. Went during November - so pool was closed - but had the fireplace going pretty much the whole time which made the place nice and cozy. There's a hot-tub ready to go too for those daring enough to brave the cold getting in and out. Will have to visit in the summer when the pool is open, would make for a fun summer getaway as well.

Peaceful, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely autumn stay here. We sat outside and listened to the birds call and the leaves fall! Deer wandered up and stared at us as we stared at them. On the cool nights the hot tub was perfect. It was close to Halloween time so we watched spooky movies at night. We took the hike up Overlook Mountain and wandered through the creepy abandoned hotel in the mist. Yes, it's a challenging hike but totally worth it, even for a 50-something with a bad hip and a millennial with a bad knee! Hope to come back to this home again...
