My partner and I came up for a four-day weekend with our dog and had a wonderful time. We have stayed at numerous places in the Woodstock/Phoenicia/Saugerties area over the years both remote and close to town, and this is our favorite.
The cottage is exactly as presented in the photos--clean and quiet with plenty of room to spread out. The owners have thought of everything people would need to make their stay pleasant and relaxing--there are fluffy towels, an extremely comfortable mattress with plenty of bedding for chilly mountain nights, a fan for the occasional warm summer night, husbands to prop yourself up while reading, an old-fashioned tub for a soak, swivel chairs so you can face or not face the television depending on your mood and activity of choice, numerous table and floor lamps for nigh time reading, and plenty of dishes if you choose to cook or grill during your stay. We also enjoyed the video and DVD library as well as the collection of board games.
The book of instructions regarding how to access the WiFi, operate the wood stove and the gas grill, use the various cable and TV remotes, and dispose of recyclables and garbage was both comprehensive and crystal clear. All of our needs and questions were anticipated and addressed.
The house is half a mile from Main Street in Woodstock, so you can either walk or drive. The agent met us at the house upon our arrival and gave us excellent tips regarding where to eat out and where to get groceries.
We will definitely go back!
