The Herb Cottage was absolutely the perfect getaway. My boyfriend and I stayed for 4 blissful nights. We were greeted by Judy who was warm and welcoming who provided us with history of the cottage recommendations for hikes, restaurants, grocery stores and, other neighboring towns to visit. The cottage is located minutes from the main street of Woodstock that has plenty to offer. The cottage was very quaint, cozy and clean. It's on a very quiet road with gorgeous trees surrounding the cottage. It was so lovely to have crickets sing you to sleep in the king sized bed. They provide plenty of towels and cozy socks to wear around the cottage. We loved the dvd collection that was alphabetized. The kitchen has everything you need and we especially enjoyed using the grill in the backyard. As for activities we hiked Overlook Mountain which is a 5 min drive from cottage. This is a must do! The view is spectacular. We drove about 20 min to hike the Kaaterskill Falls which are also something to experience. What we also loved about the Catskill mountains was that we were able to find random watering holes and take a dip. We also visited the town of Phonecia to get breakfast at Sweet Sue's. All we have to say is PANCAKES! The Herb Cottage is extremely central to all of these magical places and we were so happy with our decision to make it our first Homeaway stay. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a relaxing vacation where you can reconnect with yourself in nature and all its glory.
