Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description
1 Bedroom plus queen sleeper couch sleeps 4, 1 bath.
Charming converted 1870's post and beam barn was a Montessori schoolhouse in the 1950's and 1960's. Since then it has been recently renovated and refurnished, preserving charm of the origianl post and beam construction and antique hardwood floors. Located on a Woodstock estate that was once owned by artist Judson Smith. It's a 6 minute walk [1/2 mile] to the village of Woodstock - shorter if you 'go over the river and through the woods.' The property has a 2 1/2 acre lawn going down to the Millstream, and borders the 77 acre town forest preserve (The 'Comeau Property,' which you can see on the map)
Update October 2014: Now there is a fireplace by the stream for the use of guests of the Schoolhouse and Teahouse Cottages. Next to it is a maul [splitting ax] and a chopping block. On the upstream edge of the estate is a supply of firewood, some of which will need splitting. We include a 'Campfire Primer' in our attachments in case you don't have experience with them.

About andrew peck
We are Chloe Dresser and Andrew Peck. Our resumes are at http://www.teranrealty.com/real/wildsweet.htm
This is our 'dream property' which we found in 2002. We weren't looking for a home, but my wife Chloe happened to see the estate the first day it was on the market and called me from the property to come see it. We immediately put in a full price offer, only to be told later that there was another higher offer. We then raised our offer by $80,000. but they sold it to the other buyer anyway for $50K less than our offer. We called the buyer's lawyer and told him to tell the buyer we would pay his price if he were willing to sell. A few months later he called us and offered it for $115,000. more than he'd paid. We were ecstatic. With four post and beam barns circa 1870 three of which had been converted to residences in the 1940s by a local artist of some repute [Judson Smith], fruit trees, a trout stream running though, adjacent to a 77 acre park, and walking distance from the village of Woodstock, there is no other property in the world we can imagine more desirable to us. There was lots of work to do. Now  nearly a decade of work and $250K in renovations later, we have it ship shape.
