Property description

**featured as freshgrub unique property:
http://freshgrub.net/post/23610641400/gourmet-getaway-in-woodstock


If you want to fall asleep to the stereo lullaby of frog croaks while watching the spectacle of fireflies competing with stars, this is the place.

The property is within 10 minute walking distance through the neighboring Comeau Property, a nature preserve with hiking trails to town. The Cottage House faces the stream, waterfall, pond and great lawn on one side and the woods and field on the other. The house is a freshly architect-renovated 800sft two bedroom, one bath, sleeping 5. We provide linens, towels and other necessities.

Frederick Dana Marsh, father of the well known Social Realist painter Reginald Marsh, married Mabel Van Alstyne in 1930, starting a notable artistic partnership as the Van Alstyne Marsh Collection that was later acquired by the Smithsonian Institution. Their home was unique for Woodstock—'It was in the background of the Mona Lisa; a Van Gogh landscape; a train ride through Tuscany—ball shaped junipers; a pond that bracketed the house; expansive lawns; a gathering of birches. But most of all, big cone shaped cedar trees. It is a marvelous thing to look up at backlit clouds at sunset—see the intrusion of cedar peaks, pointing up like soft missles and the erratic flight of mosquito catcher bats making ninety degree turns down the channels between the trees. A photographer friend was here last weekend and I told her, “Don’t worry about framing the picture, just point and shoot. The landscaper framed it for you seventy years ago.” ' Here I quote Austin Metze, who knows this piece of land long before it put a spell on us.

To be there is to inhabit an idyllic painting. Sit in the property's own Hidden Chair Waterfall or chill at the secluded sandy beach swim hole a one minute stroll away through enchanted woods, take a hike up Milk Mountain or up the trails of the neighboring nature preserve for a Sunday brunch in town and visit to the flea market. Or just read a good book under a cypress tree.

The Cottage House is on the same property as the Pond House, listed on VRBO vrbo #373377. Both houses are very private. There are three houses next to each other, the Cottage House, the old Farm House that is permanently rented to our dear Lainey and Austin, and the Pond House. The Cottage House faces the stream and the great lawn on one side and the woods and field on the other.

Check in is 2pm, check out 10am, which is flexible unless booked the same day. High Season rates apply to all holidays, at a three night minimum stay.
