CHARMING CRAFTSMAN MOUNTAIN COTTAGE

Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7-8), seasonal mountain views

Secluded on 7 fresh pine acres next to forever-wild protected land, this homey but updated 1920s Cottage includes everything you need for relaxation and fun. Simply furnished with folk art and rustic antiques, but updated with new dishwasher and Jenn Air stove/convection oven, we do everything possible to make your stay memorably effortless. High speed internet is included.

Many of our guests never leave the property, preferring evenings on the patio for mellow star-gazing or parties -- or daytime hikes just outside the doors to moss forest, streams, waterfalls and rock quarry where porcupine make their homes.

Others use the Cottage as home base to enjoy the area's many attractions -- sports, hiking, five-star dining, antiquing, art, theater, and world-class music. Woodstock is just 3 minutes away by car.

Whatever your preference, inhale the pine-scented cool mountain air, and enjoy your stay.

Pete, Jack and I love all that our country house has to offer - great hikes, fresh air, seasonal changes, and lots of great culture in nearby Woodstock and the surrounding area. Pete's an artist and Marietta's a writer and we find endless inspiration just outside the door. Some of our favorite moments have been taking the short hike around our property, kicking around streams, climbing the rock quarry, sitting in the moss forest, collecting nature's treasures.

Marietta purchased this house in 1994

We were NYC people looking to move to the country and saw our Woodstock house as the ideal happy medium -- gorgeous setting, charming house with architectural history (Peter has a passion for old buildings), nearby culture and like-minded people, and only 2.5 hours from NYC. We're continually moved by the seasonal moments.

Quiet, serenity of nature with little else disturbing us. The sheer beauty of the surrounding pine forest with its grandeur and nuance. The proximity of world-class art, music, and dining just minutes to Woodstock, Saugerties, and Rhinebeck. The opportunity to entertain our friends and family in a beautiful, welcoming place. We always have a great time!

EAGER RETURNING VISITORS

  • 5 of 5
We love this place!
This is our third visit to this sweet, quaint, secluded cabin in the woods. We stayed there previously in the winter - so it was great being there in warm weather this time - the cliff, trees, and the moss covered creek bed are amazingly beautiful. The outdoor fire adds to the dreamy experience, as does the natural beauty of the property. The stone fireplace and original wood floors, windows, staircase, etc make this place a true value. Marietta is kind, gentle, and accommodating - thank you Marietta!
We will definitely be back!

SISTERS GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This property was exactly as advertised. Very quiet and private. The owner was very helpful and accessible. Woodstock is a short 6 minute drive. Unfortunately, I didn't realize this until the last day when I went exploring. We had been taking the long way back to Rte 212 and into town. There's a little vegan restaurant in the center of town, Garden Cafe on the Green, which was very good.
The mosquitos were brutal which was unfortunate. So, we did not enjoy the picnic table and patio as we would have liked. There's no a/c but with all the fans provided and the cooling weather at night, sleeping was comfortable. Opus 40 is a must see in Saugerties. We also enjoyed the theater at Maverick. The owners collection of books is fun to browse. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: We are SO happy when people enjoy our house - especially for meaningful events like a birthday or reunion. I wish there were something we could do about the mosquitos this year, but maybe next week's dry, cooler weather will help. As far as directions to and from town, we will definitely include them in our brochure - thank you for the tip!

FANTASTIC HOUSE AND LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
This was a fantastic experience. Marietta, the owner, was great through the whole process. She responded right away to any questions I had and sent a great info packet of information for things to do in the Woodstock area.

I booked this house for my wife and 5 of her friends for my wife's weekend birthday party. Everyone one of them loved the house and the location. No issues with anything and if we are ever in the Woodstock area we will definitely see if this incredible house is available to rent again!

Thank you again Marietta! This was probably one of my wife's favorite birthdays of all time!

GREAT FAMILY GET TOGETHER

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, our three adult children and our dog spent Labor Day weekend at this great house. The setting is gorgeous house and the house has so much charm. But more importantly, the downstairs set-up was perfect for a weekend of togetherness. The kitchen island was huge and allowed all of us to cook and talk at the same time. The dining table was spacious and comfortable. The living room was also spacious and the perfect setting for game playing and talking, which we did all three nights. But the best was working with the owners, who supplied so much information on running the house and things to do in the area, like biking, hiking, dining, swimming. We had an awesome weekend and would definitely return.

GREAT FAMILY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
My husband, three grown children, dog, and I spent Labor Day Weekend at this terrific home. The setting was just beautiful, with trees, ravines, stone walls, and a lovely outdoor seating area. The house too has so much charm: wide plank floors, slate windowsills, etc. We were there for a family get together, and the downstairs was perfect for that. The kitchen has a huge island for the whole family to gather around and group cook with a large dining table just off to the side. The living room was spacious and every night we played one of the board or card games that were piled on the bookshelves. The owners were wonderful to work with with perfect directions and great suggestions for what to do, everything from biking to hiking to galleries and water holes. We had a perfect time and would definitely return.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to have you stay, Ellen and family. It seems like you really "get" the unique quirkiness of our house - and it "gets" you! Many thanks for being one of our favorite repeat guests!

PERFECTION ... WHEN YOU NEED A WEEKEND GETAWAY FROM NEW YORK CITY.

  • 5 of 5
The house was exactly as advertised and everything we were looking for ... a perfect, secluded mountain getaway. The house had an exquisite country charm to it, setting the stage for a quiet and relaxing weekend. The surrounding areas offer plenty of sites to see and activities if you wanted to explore, or if you are looking for more of a hideaway (as we did), this is the house for you. The neighboring house is in view but we never saw them. The house was well kept and all amenities worked without a glitch. Our favorite time of the day was obviously spent at night after dinner around the fire place.

Prior to our arrival, the owners provided a detailed document outlining everything about the property with recommendations on local sight-seeing, food and activities. We spent most of our time at the house but had dinner at Cucina (restaurant on the main street of Woodstock) one night, highly recommended ... simple/classic/chi decor and the food was above average. We also took a drive to neighboring Saugerties which has a number of really great antique shops to explore.

When we plan another trip around here, we will absolutely stay again at this property.
