Five stars are not enough to express what a great stay we had at the Herb Cottage. The house was immaculate and exactly as pictured/described, and an ideal place to spend our first visit to the beautiful little town of Woodstock. We lucked into nearly perfect weather for our five-day vacation, but still spent a lot of our time indoors because the cottage is just that comfortable! We are especially grateful that we could bring our furry companion, Dexter, who seldom gets to travel and really enjoyed his time away from home.
For first-time visitors to the area, there is such a wealth of things to see and do, though we can't recommend many restaurants because we did most of our own cooking (and nearby Sunflower Market has everything you'll need if you love to cook like we do). Catskill Mountain Pizza Company is awesome if you want to order in, and we had an excellent outdoor lunch at Yum Yum Noodle Bar.
We also drove to several of the neighboring towns, like Saugerties and Kingston, and hiked in some parks, including Minnewaska and the Walkway over the Hudson (both are a bit of a drive from Woodstock, and very popular, but if you're new to the area like we were they are a must).
We looked at a lot of properties in the region, and the Herb Cottage seemed almost too good to be true, but there's simply no way we could have found a better place to stay. We loved the wood stove, even when it wasn't really cold enough to use it! The cottage has all the comforts of home, while still maintaining just enough "rustic" charm. It was the best vacation we've ever had together, and we will definitely be back!!!
