Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 2 Full BA, Comfortably Sleeps 8, Dining Room Seats 8-10

Bordered by running streams and surrounded by 25+ acres of DEP-protected Catskill Mountains forest lands, this 1.65 acre hideaway offers a serenely quiet retreat. Nestled among the mountains, within 15 minutes of Woodstock and 5 minutes of Emerson Spa, this fully-equipped home is especially well-suited for families with young children (adjustable basketball hoop in driveway, sledding hill just outside living room windows, Grant Avery Public Park/IGA supermarket/pharmacy within 5 minutes, full size Weber propane BBQ grill, 2 backyard fire pits ideal for s’mores) or for couples seeking a perfect spot for a romantic getaway (wood stove inset to stone fireplace in living room with vaulted ceiling, dimmer switches throughout the house provide ambient lighting, liquor store within 5 minutes).

Only 2 hours drive to New York City!!!

Guest Book #1: Dear Ben and Erica: Thank you for sharing your magnificent mountain getaway with us, six young professionals on holiday from the hustle bustle of NYC. Upon our arrival, we built a roaring fire which warmed our bodies and our spirits. We spent two lovely days exploring the lovely Catskills. On day one, some of us enjoyed the powder of Hunter Mountain. Day two brought our group to the four-star Emerson Spa where we relaxed with sensual massages and soaks in the outdoor hot tub. You have a warm home, and we would recommend it to anyone needing to get away. Thank you! From, Ben, Elizabeth, Jen, Nathan, Sarah, Shannon

Guest Book #2: What a comfortable house in such beautiful surroundings. We especially delighted in the surrounding brook and fire pit. It's rare to find a cabin with so many little luxuries combined with rustic simplicity. We took a pretty walk on the reservoir path and had a tasty pizza at a restaurant down the road (Merlina's?). We saw hummingbirds last night in the backyard! Thanks for a lovely time!! -- L & N Families

Guest Book #3: Dear Ben & Erica: Thank you so much! We wanted a getaway to a quiet place with snow to celebrate New Year in a peaceful home. This is more than we could imagine. Everything was perfect! This was the first time my son saw snow, he loved it! We even saw a bunch of footprints in the backyard! It was so cozy here! The simple, yet treasured, smell of firewood in the wood stove, made everything seem like a dream come true. Thank you for making this New Year one of the best we had! -- The L Family

About Benjamin Cox

As a couple who lives day-to-day in NYC, we love to use this house ourselves and so we've taken great care to ensure it has everything that we want when we're there. We like using real, non-rental dishes with high-end pots and pans. We like using wireless internet connections that actually work, wireless iTunes connections to the stereo plus an iPod port, the ability to fax when necessary, the ability to turn on an alarm system, using a wine fridge, playing basketball out front, watching fire in the pits out back or in the fireplace inside, using a massive Weber BBQ grill and dimmer switches everywhere. We're also insane about keeping things CLEAN. :-) With all that we just decompress. Watch the deer or the hawks or the hummingbirds. Or just read a book while listening to the streams babbling by on either side of the property. Regardless, just love our place as much as we do and don't hesitate to call with questions while you're there.

Benjamin Cox purchased this house in 2005

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
Me and six friends rented this house for a weekend in the winter, and everyone loved it! Went sledding, built fires in the outdoor pit and indoor stove (which everyone catnapped by, it was so relaxing; we ended up being jealous of those staying on the pullout couch because they got to sleep in the living near the toasty embers!). Reasonably-priced x-country skiing on nice ungroomed tracks was super close (25 min drive), as well as yummy restaurants, convenient grocery shopping, etc.

Ben was also very quick to answer all the questions we had (by phone, email, text), so we were never out to sea! The general consensus was we DID NOT want go back to NYC. Highly recommended. Worked very well for a group of 20-somethings.

Lovely place, great time, can't wait to return

Lovely place, great time, can't wait to return
  • 5 of 5
We loved this place and can't wait to get back to it!

We (couple + 5 year old) stayed in the winter and took advantage of the snowy sledding hill, the wood burning stove and got lots of rest and relaxation. We especially enjoyed grilling a lovely dinner as the snow gently fell around us. Ben was friendly and very helpful.

Booking another trip to the same house for this year!

Great for Groups

  • 5 of 5
All the general impressions of loveliness that other reviewers have shared are accurate. Here are a few additional, more specific perks. First, the arrangement of rooms lends itself well to big groups. The kitchen, living room, and fireplace all occupy the same area of the house. People cooking, people stoking fires, people changing the music, people making snarky comments on the couches are all within in 15 ft of each other. It's great. The house is essentially a rectangle. The kitchen/living/dining occupy one end of the house and the bedrooms occupy the other end, sort of in a line. This proved helpful because those who had to get up earliest slept in the farthest room, relatively isolated from any revelry that continued late. The house is well stocked with games, blankets, firewood, spices, etc. We didn't spend much time exploring the property behind the house, but did romp about in nearby forests, rivers, etc. Fishing and hiking were both only half an hour a way (and I believe there were even closer options).

I'll write again here what I wrote in the guest book: "Came up here with a close crew of friends; because of this house we're even closer."

Stellar home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Six friends and I stayed at this Catskills oasis and had the most amazing time. The house is so cool (loved the secret closet and awesome decor) , the surrounding area stunning and is pretty much the ideal place to take advantage of the area. The owner, Ben, was so generous with his time and very responsive to the many questions we had, which was invaluable. We didn't want our weekend to end and are already planning our return in the spring!
