ROMANTIC + HISTORIC ARTIST’S COTTAGE WITH STONE FIREPLACE IN PRIVATE WOODS!

Woodstock Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4

Treat yourself to a romantic getaway, personal retreat or creative sabbatical in your own private storybook cottage nestled in a 5-acre forest in Woodstock, the famous “colony of the arts” and cultural hub of the Catskills! This historic Woodstock hand-built house was the home of the legendary film director, Preston Sturges ~ as well as many other well-known artists and musicians. It features a spacious great room with a cathedral ceiling, 2-story north-light windows, a massive stone fireplace, and 2 sets of French doors that open onto a blue stone patio overlooking a fern glade and deep pine forest. Stretch out on the queen bed with a pillow-top mattress and luxury linens in the quaint bedroom with cottage-style casement windows. Fall asleep to the sound of crickets, and wake up to birdsong! Climb an open stairway to a private writer’s office, as well as a loft space with a foldout futon couch and balcony overlooking the great room. There’s a second writer’s office on the first floor, with an arched Palladian window and forest views. Prepare snacks and meals in your well-equipped country kitchen, and serve them at the farm table next to a wall of glass, or on the patio surrounded by gardens. Cozy up to a fire in the stone fireplace in the winter, and watch the snow settle on the branches outside and transform the woods into a magical wonderland. This charming cottage in an idyllic setting is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or creative retreat. Make the Sturges’ cottage your home for a weekend, week, month or season, and let it inspire and uplift you throughout the year!

Awesome cottage in the woods of Woodstock.

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful cottage set back in the woods of West Hurley, just minutes from the village of Woodstock. Clean, fresh, simple yet rustic interior design. Cozy bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, great fireplace. So nice to watch the sun come up through the trees in front of one of the many windows. Great back patio. We just love this place.

Best place to stay in Woodstock

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is rich is history and Woodstock lore, and just perfect in every way. I'm a winter person and often visit in the deep of winter. Looking out the many large windows, it is a snowy and sparkling landscape: a romantic scene from Dr. Zhivago. Inside, you are toasty and warm. It's a tight house with no drafts at all. I have never had to set the thermostat above 63 degrees. Remarkable.

I was there again for a 2013 New Year's holiday. After an awesome hike along the reservoir and while considering our other options, my husband and I agreed: "let's go home, light a fire, and enjoy the space". We looked at each other and did a double take. Yes. It feels like home to us and we treat it as such.

It's a privilege to be able to access such a magical location.

Lovely setting, lovely cottage, as advertised

  • 5 of 5
We found our six-night stay extremely pleasant and relaxing, despite the fact that one of us, very unfortunately, had to work on a couple of days. For that reason, the high-speed internet access turned out to be a godsend.

It's a beautiful home, which the photos quite accurately represent. Very clean and well-kept, with all the described amenities. I would call the kitchen 'well-equipped'--though, since I cooked a few times, I found it maybe just a little shy of 'fully-equipped.' But we found the couple of small kitchen items we needed at the supermarket a few minutes away by car.

The location is pretty ideal. It's far enough from the neighbors and road to feel private, yet it's a short drive to Woodstock, which has great restaurants, charming shops, farmers' markets, etc.

The bed in the master bedroom is quite firm, which was just what we wanted, but maybe not to everyone's taste.

Payment and welcome was handle with warm efficiency by the property manager, Judy. We arrived to find a bottle of wine waiting for us--a very nice touch that made us feel right at home.

Art and nature brought together

  • 5 of 5
If you want a rest, far from the city and in the middle of nature, this is definitely the place to come to. The cottage is wonderfully equipped, very well decorated. The children just loved it and played in the surroundings as much as they could. This is the perfect place to come with friends or kids. Judy was a very kind and thoughtful host and contributed to make our stay a great one. I have highly recommended this place to friends.
