  • Relaxing get away!

    "Arrived by bus on memorial weekend into the center of Woodstock. The cottage is around a 15 minute walk from the drop off point- The majority of the walk is via a path but there is a short section on an unpaved road (we took a detour via the golf course which shortened the walk on the road). Billy's wife Jane met us and gave us the keys from the cottage, which is located near their main house. We didn't see or hear too much from them throughout our whole trip. The cottage was clean and backs onto a running stream. The cottage has double glazing, so its your choice whether you listen to the running water or not from the bedroom, as the double glazed windows shut off any noise from outside. Had pizza on the day we arrived from the local pizza shop and ate the remainder for lunch the following day as the portions were pretty big (one small pizza for two is fine). We took advantage of the nice weather and grilled both evening, buying the meat and veg from the organic store in Woodstock. (just south of the pizza shop- not the one that backs onto rite aid or CVS). We finally met Billy as we were leaving and he kindly offered to drop us both off at the bus stop in Woodstock. We would definitely recommend streamside cottage!"

  • Spacious house with open design and breathtaking views

    "Our experience with this house, from the time of booking to our departure, was outstanding. The house is just as seen in the photos, with quality furnishings, simple and clean décor, and lots of open space. You get a great view of the mountains from practically every room in the house (and there are plenty of windows)! It was very easy to settle in and feel right at home quickly. the fact that the house was so clean was a huge plus! We were two adults and two young kids, so obviously didn't utilize all the space/rooms, but were still able to enjoy all aspects of the house, including the pool table on the ground floor. There is a flat front lawn, which was great for the kids to play on, but the wooded and sloped back yard was also fun for the kids to explore. Given the house is situated higher up in the mountain, it is nicely secluded and peaceful. Much like other guests who have stayed here, we are very much looking forward to returning one day."

  • Serene and luxurious getaway! Perfect for a big group

    "We were very impressed with everything about this listing! The barn is absolutely beautiful and extremely functional for our large group. The weather wasn't the best and we still had a ton to do in the area (wine tours, ahem) and had fun inside; the big barn doors were really nice to have open while it rained. The beds were extremely comfortable and everyone slept really well. The extra blankets and linens around the house were a really great touch as well. Jon was extremely available and helpful during the entirety of our stay and we can't thank him enough. Highly recommended!"

  • Wendy is fantastic and has thought of everything! Great house for groups!

    "Every summer I rent a house for a long weekend with a group of family and friends. Wendy's house has been our best experience yet! The house has everything you can think of, even things that I hadn't thought about before the trip, like a cooler and board games. There are pleasant surprises everywhere - the garage had a ping pong table that we didn't know about! The kitchen / living room area is great for assembling a group, as is the beautiful porch area. The bedrooms are comfortable, and the master bedroom/bath especially is wonderful. The shower is great! The backyard is probably the highlight of the property. It's large and has a gas grill that Wendy provides a tank for, a firepit, and a hot tub. There was one disappointment, which I quickly got over - In the photos, the house looked to me like nobody had ever stepped foot in it before, but it's actually more lived in than that. That doesn't mean that the house is run down - it's in very good shape - but there are a couple areas where, for example, paint has chipped off the walls. It didn't interfere with our trip at all. I doubt the house would have been so well-stocked if it hadn't been enjoyed by Wendy's family Wendy is the best! She responds within minutes to all questions and was consistently reasonable and flexible. For example, we were able to check in early and stay late. She also gives you complete privacy - she isn't in town but provides a phone number for a handyman whom I assume can help you out if you have any issue with the house, which we didn't The location is great too. Under 2 hours driving to NYC. Several people took the Amtrak to Rhinebeck, which is about a 25 minute drive from the house. The surrounding area is beautiful and peaceful Some tips for future travelers -There's wifi and a landline at the house but cell service is very spotty in the area. If you're going to go driving in e.g. to pick someone up from the train station, plug it into Google maps before you leave the house, while you still have wifi -As Wendy will note to you, the hot tub truly does take a long time to heat up. Turn it up at least a couple hours early -Cover the hot tub when it's not in use. Wendy will also tell you to do this, and we did our best, but we still ended up gathering a fair amount of leaves and outdoor debris in the tub, which made it somewhat less appetizing after the first night 10/10! Everyone in the group commented on how great the house was. We'd love to go back"
