SPECTACULAR, LUXURIOUS HOME ON 12 ACRES W/ MOUNTAIN VIEWS, PRIVACY, SPACE

Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible beds, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

Perched on top a mountain on twelve private acres is this one of a kind, architect and designer-crafted, custom built, contemporary home. Arguably the newest and best luxury home on the rental market in Ulster County!

Made for entertaining in style, this private paradise is located off of a private road in an exclusive area of Woodstock/Hurley that abuts the Ashokan Reservoir. At least seven peaks (at the last count!) are visible from all rooms of the house, and the mountain range views are even more dramatic from the massive floating cedar deck.

The house was constructed by master craftsmen, and no expense has been spared on top of the line cabinetry and fixtures. Designer touches are visible throughout...exposed ceiling beams, Brazilian cherry wide-plank floors, Grohe fixtures, limestone tile in bathrooms, Asian inspired above counter bathroom sink bowls, designer lighting, custom staircases, exquisite glass and wood work detail. The custom designed bathroom vanities were built by a craftsman that even Robert Wilson calls upon for his impeccable woodworking!

The magnificent living area leads out onto a beautiful deck with incredible mountain views. It has stunning cherry floors, a huge wood burning fire, a serious music system with Smartphone hook up. The open concept format seamlessly integrates the kitchen, dining and living areas together.

The top floor was designed as a 'Master Suite' and features a magnificent loft with colossal ceiling-height and spectacular mountain views; a custom glass, stainless and wood loft surround. The loft houses the media area with a 55' flat screen TV, Denon sound system & DVD player.

A gallery hallway leads to the massive Master bedroom with cathedral ceilings and the beautifully appointed, Italian limestone master bath which features a custom built double walnut vanity, huge shower with rain head and separate hand held shower, plus a 6 ft soaking tub.

The four bedrooms are all generously sized and offer magnificent views. There are three full and one half baths, each custom appointed. All bathrooms include glass, limestone, and/or slate tiling, custom glass work and Grohe fixtures. Each one is uniquely designed and all beautiful.

The gourmet kitchen features high end, stainless steel appliances, a gas stove, plenty of cooking utensils, cabinets specifically imported from Italy, and a beautiful Shivakashi-granite countertop.

The garden level features another full custom finished bath, a queen bedroom, polished concrete floors, high ceilings, RADIANT floor heating, a massive wood burning fireplace and fantastic open areas for entertaining.

The surrounding area offers incredible variety and natural beauty. This is a year round destination: swimming holes abound in the summer, foliage in the fall is incredible, New York's best ski hills in the winter, and the spring is simply magical. There are world class spas and restaurants, and fun shopping in the quirky town of Woodstock, America's most famous small town and birth place of the musical revolution of 1969.

I live in New York but grew up in Canada and Bermuda, two wildly different climates! When it comes to property I tend to prefer the extremes....extreme country, or extreme city, and that's one of the things I love about Woodstock. It's less than two hours from New York City, but it's a million miles away with respect to it's ambiance, culture and attitude. Woodstock is a fabulous combination of getting away from it all while still having plenty to do.

While the eastern side of the Hudson River valley tends toward rolling topography historically suitable for farmland, thanks to the Catskill mountain range, on our side we enjoy skiing, hiking, rock climbing and delicious mountain views. The unique village of Woodstock retains the same quirkiness that attracted the likes of Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin and ultimately the infamous Woodstock music festival, garnering it the title of the 'most famous small town in America'. The pristine beauty of the surroundings inevitably grew an avid following from New York City, so a sophisticated but casual community has evolved. The Town of Woodstock proudly bears the title 'colony of the arts'. There are music concerts, theatre, art galleries, and film festivals along with farm festivals. This really is a year round destination: the summer is lush and beautiful, and people of all ages enjoy the many streams and swimming holes, there is a beautiful golf course golf in Woodstock, a tennis center in Saugerties (15 minutes away), as well as hiking and rock climbing. The fall is absolutely spectacular, the foliage can be outrageous, the air cool and refreshing. When winter hits, there's downhill and cross country skiing, snow shoeing....or just relaxing in front of the fire and taking in the beautiful snowy views isn't too bad either. The fresh air and beautiful light that spring brings is absolutely invigorating.

This is arguably one of the nicest rentals in Ulster county. It's private, beautiful, peaceful, brand new...and the mountain views are spectacular. It's on 12 acres and at the top of a mountain, but only a five minute drive to the village of Woodstock.

The house is very spacious but also intimate. The bedrooms are large and private, the bathrooms tastefully tiled in limestone and glass with custom fixtures,and the kitchen comfortably outfitted. The house is tastefully furnished, and even with a large group there is enough space to have quiet time if you so wish.

Perfect Vacation

The Mountaintop Estate was perfect. The owner Christine was extremely accommodating, and the house was private and peaceful with amazing mountain views. We grilled out every night on the veranda and ate our dinner watching the sun go down. The house was very clean and spacious and my daughter loved the pool table and her four poster bed! We spent a very relaxing week swimming in the near by water holes, renting bikes and cycling along an old railroad track, walking in Poet's Walk Park and strolling around the beautiful Ashokan Reservoir. If you want to get away from the bustle of New York City and enjoy the beauty of the Catskills this is the place to go.

Mountaintop Estate: Resplendent Modern Woodstock Retreat

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 16, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
Although “Mountaintop Estate” could act as a touch stone for the traveler who would want to explore and enjoy the Woodstock area of the Catskills, it is a magnificent retreat for solitude and rest all on its own! This beautiful, well-appointed, architecturally sublime home was a perfect sanctuary for our tired souls, as we had the privilege to stay 3 weeks in this magnificent house. We were healed by gawking at the breathtaking views of the mountains, watching the ever-changing sky and light, enjoying the vaulted ceilings and window views, all the special artistic touches, large working fireplace, and first class accommodations. The photos are accurate, yet the retreat itself seems to transcend the pictures. It is neat, clean, beautiful floors, spacious rooms, pool table in the large basement, yet all the décor has the minimalist grace of understated grandness. We would return to rent this retreat in a shot! It was hard to leave.
Also of importance, is the care and concern of the owner. She was always responsive, helpful and flexible to our special needs. Thank you.

Wonderful vacation home

We recently had a family vacation at this property. Three families plus one baby. The house was magnificent with so much space. The bedrooms, bathrooms were all exceptionally nice. There was so much room on this 3-floor home that when people needed to be alone they could just pick a floor and disappear. The baby had just learned to walk and had so much space to explore. Perhaps the best part was the two decks, one on the main floor and one on the lower floor. We ate all of our meals out on the wooden deck with a gorgeous view of trees and mountains. The kitchen was fully stocked with appliances and everything necessary to cook and eat in. The internet access was excellent, the TV and channel were very good. The location was just 5 minutes from the town and there was much to do everyday.

It was a memorable vacate for our family and the home was a big part of the success of the week. I highly recommend this property.

HAD A FABULOUS TIME!

My group and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! JoAnn provided excellent and prompt service to any inquiry I had while planning this trip and even after we arrived. She was one of the main reasons I chose this home. I contacted several other owners regarding theirs, but she was always the first to respond to each and EVERY question I had and made us feel very confident and comfortable with our choice.

The home is just as BEAUTIFUL and modern as the photos illustrate. It was definitely enough room for 4 couples and had anything we needed at our fingertips. At night we sipped hot chocolate and watched several shooting stars on the balcony which was a beautiful experience on a crisp winter night.

I recommend this home to just anyone: couples, families, friends. You will not be disappointed!!

Luxury in Paradise

We loved the spacious rooms & the views were absolutely spectacular. Our favorite time was watching the sunsets with a glass of wine then curling up in front of the fireplace. The pictures are accurate, we have booked on the internet many times & the very few times we have been disappointed it was by deceptive photos.Not the case here.
The house was spotless and exceeded our expectations. If you like nature but enjoy all the amenities a tourist area has to offer from charming Woodstock with it's cute shops & restaurants to skiing or golfing. This is the place to stay.
