Property description

Welcome to Brook Cottage in Woodstock!

Your Woodstock “home away from home” is ideally located on a shared and secluded property at the end of a private lane, yet walking distance to the heart of the quaint and artsy village of Woodstock. You can walk to restaurants, cafes, galleries, boutiques, theaters and clubs ~ or just stay home and relax in front of a cozy fire in your living room gas fireplace with an exposed stone chimney, cathedral ceiling with skylights, and 2-story north-light windows with mountain views! Or you can snuggle by a fire in the cast-iron gas stove in the sunny south-facing kitchen/dining/TV room with a wall of glass overlooking a blue stone patio (with a gas grill and outdoor dining table), spacious lawn and year-round stream that flows through the back of the property and right past the cottage!

You can also enjoy views of the stream from the master bedroom in the upstairs sleeping loft (which features a sitting area, interior balcony overlooking the great room, and queen bed under a triangular-shaped window and ceiling skylights), as well as the downstairs second bedroom with a full bed and east-facing windows.

Prepare snacks and meals in your newly-remodeled and fully-equipped country kitchen with marble countertops, new appliances, and an ample pantry stocked with basic condiments.

Brook Cottage occupies the east wing of an authentic 1928 artist’s residence/studio that has been lovingly restored to include state-of-the-art systems, high-end appliances, and modern amenities, while still retaining it’s authentic character and charm. Amenities include a high-efficiency washer/dryer, dishwasher, WIFI, cable TV with DVD and streaming Netflix, AC, ceiling fans, remote controlled skylights with black-out shades, gas grill and thermostat-controlled gas fireplace and fire stove. An architect- designed and sound-proof wall separates Brook Cottage from the west wing of the building, which is occupied by Brook Cottage Too (property #4230126), a brand new and smaller vacation home.

Although Brook Cottage and Brook Cottage Too are totally separate and independent semi-detached rentals (with entrances and private patios on different sides of the building), which are each ideally suited for romantic getaways and personal retreats, they may also be rented together by groups of friends or extended family members who want to be together while still maintaining their own private spaces. Please note that a 10% discount off the rental rate for both applies when Brook Cottage and Brook Cottage Too are jointly rented by one party.

NO CAR NECESSARY: Brook Cottage is easy walking distance to everything that Woodstock has to offer: restaurants, cafes, galleries, boutiques, theaters, clubs, live music, hiking trails, swimming holes, etc. In other words, you don't need a car! In fact, you can ride the Adirondack Trailways bus from NYC or NJ and arrive at the Woodstock Village Green (just a few blocks from your Brook Cottage) in just two hours!

Car: Not Necessary

Woodstock is a historic and thriving arts community ideally located in the foothills of the Catskill Mountain Park, halfway between the spectacular high peaks to the west and the Hudson River valley to the east. You can explore the surrounding mountains by car or on foot/bike via scenic drives or an extensive network of hiking trails ~ many of which follow pristine mountain streams with waterfalls.

Discover why the natural beauty of this area inspired the 19th century romantic art movement known as the Hudson River School with it’s oversize panoramic landscape paintings, and why it has attracted such visionaries as the founders of the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony (the oldest operating arts + crafts colony in America), Maverick Concerts (the longest-running summer music festival), the Woodstock Sound-Outs of the 1960s, and of course the 1969 Woodstock Festival of Music + Art.

Woodstock continues to be a haven for artists, musicians, writers and spiritual seekers, as evidenced by the many galleries, studios, music venues, and monasteries in the region. As such, it is widely considered the cultural hub of the area.
