Everything about the Woodstock location is great. There is a progressive spirit and a rich array of cultural activities -- art galleries and crafts shops, music venues, film and poetry festivals, outdoor concerts and plays, and much, much more. The restaurants are great, as are the farm stands and food shops. The world-class Emerson spa is less than 10 minutes away.
But it's just as easy to skip all that for a nature experience. Hiking trails begin in the back yard, which abuts public lands. The Catskills are rich with hiking, swimming, and biking opportunities. Star-gazing and sunsets can be extraordinary. Set back in the woods, the house is utterly tranquil, yet it is a short drive to civilization at its best
A loop walk through the neighborhood, up a mountain road to a great vista... a drive to Woodstock for the film festival or an outdoor summer concert.... Swim in the private, spring-fed pond, armed with cooler chest and towels, emerge refreshed and silken. Return home for a sauna, a campfire, a cocktail... Read a novel, watch a movie in still beauty... Breathe deeply... Feel calm.
Hike and snowshoe out the backyard -- thousands of acres of public land. Swim pond with picnic tables and park-like grounds and yoga classes available in neighborhood. Galleries, fine restaurants, entertainment in nearby Woodstock. Hudson River 30 minutes away for kayaking, sailing and other boating. Easy access to all outdoor recreational activities in the Catskills.
