BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN VIEW ESTATE IN WOODSTOCK

Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description

Home, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This home is in the center of a 200 acre mountainside estate property. It has been renovated to maximize the views from each room. Most rooms face southeast and look upon the back side of Overlook Mountain. You can also see to the south as far as New Paltz and beyond on a clear day. Every season and weather condition is spectacular to see from the house. Below the front lawn is a fenced in 20x40 foot heated swimming pool with it's own cabana (open seasonally). Below that is a park-like area with a screened in gazebo. The pool is for your private use. The owner/caretaker lives in a house located behind the main house. Your privacy will be respected. It is assumed that you are here to get away from it all, but someone is here if you need assistance.

The central part of the house was built in the late 1800's and comprises the living room and sun porch downstairs, with two small bedrooms, a large bedroom with non-working stone fireplace and double bed, and a full bath upstairs. At one end of this central area is the dining room, the huge eat-in kitchen, and another glassed in porch with an additional dining/sitting area and a Steinway grand piano. There is an outside dining terrace off the kitchen with the best view on the property. At the other end of the house, the entrance way hall leads to the living room. Off this hallway is another guest room with a queen bed, full bathroom, and efficiency kitchenette area. Above this is the master bedroom suite, which includes a queen bed, a private bathroom with jetted tub and separate tiled shower, a large walk in closet, elevator access, a separate outside entrance, and a small library. The house can accommodate a total of eight people.

Hi. I have lived in paradise on this Catskill mountain for 30+ years. It is time to downsize my personal living space and share the incredible beauty of this property with others. Every time I travel, I am struck anew by how much of our country is covered with developments and commercialization. Coming home to Woodstock and to this peaceful retreat is so soothing to the soul. Come and see for yourself...

The Owner purchased this house in 1978

Woodstock and the surrounding area is blessed with beauty, art, exciting positive energy, interesting people, and lots of great restaurants and nearby adventures. It is such a sanctuary for the soul. I relocated to this area from NYC in 1969 (Could it be that I was a hippy?) There has always been an influx of interesting refugees from the city. I think this is because nature is so lush and untainted here and yet cultural stimulation is within easy reach.

The most striking thing about this property (I call it Bristol Hill), is the scenery. Photos do not do it justice. Sit on the terrace and watch the reflection of the setting sun on the back of Overlook Mountain. It is as healing as a meditation retreat. The stillness is only broken by the chirping birds that abound here. You may see wild turkeys, deer with their fawns, squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, incredible cloud formations...What you mostly will not see is other people. There are trails to hike, a pool to relax in, a ramshackle tennis court with lots of excuses for missed shots, a pool table for rainy days and outside dining for sunny afternoons. If you are a pianist or a student of the piano, please come and play the Steinway O in the breakfast room. You really don't have to go anywhere, but if you do, Woodstock Center is just 10 minutes away.

Perfect Getaway

The house and surrounding grounds are stunning! We could not have had a better experience. The house is spotless, comfortable and exceptionally well maintained. The kitchen has everything you need to cook large gourmet meals. We plan to visit again and again.

We Love This Beautiful Mountain Estate!

Let me start by saying we've stayed here before. We were very happy with our previous stay, so much so, we returned. Oh yes, we've tried others. ... talk about some of the biggest mistakes of our valued already too short family time - confused landlords with mixed up dates, dirty properties, not well equipped - you will have NONE of those concerns here! My adult son says this is his favorite property, my adult daughter says of all the places we've stayed, this is her favorite and I must say, I concur. If I hit the lottery I am making an offer! The home is perfect for families. You have ample bedrooms, ample bathrooms, the kitchen is the heart of the home and a total delight. When arriving with family there are some advantages here that you will not have with other properties. The place is spotless. SPOTLESS. And that's a relief. It's also homey so you feel you are at home, not in a rental. Double ovens in the kitchen entice you to cook that family dinner and the two fridges – once you have two you’ll wonder how you ever lived without two! Perfect for a left over back up or your water, soda, wine, beer storage. Plus we appreciate that fact that they recycle - no easy feat when it's the holidays and people are being jollier than usual. This is extra work for Diane and Barb and they do it quietly and unobtrusively - you never know they've even been there till you see the empty bins! The thing that makes this place so special is Diane and Barb. Their love of this property is obvious. Their courtesy and concern for their clients is above and beyond normal expectations - from handling icy patches on the drive to expeditiously shoveling snow, even allowing a package to be shipped ahead of one's arrival. They bend over backwards to ensure your visit is comfortable and safe and a enjoyable. This year we had the pleasure of the company of a young lady that had never spent Christmas in upstate NY. Her eyes were as big as saucers over every facet of a holiday in Woodstock - from the home to trimming the tree to snow fall on Christmas eve, having a Christmas stocking to open Christmas morning ,,, the ambiance of a true family Christmas is greatly enhanced by this home and Diane and Barb. It has left our family with precious memories to last a lifetime. Without hesitation I already booked for next year and my entire family is looking forward yet again, to returning to the mountain for our family Christmas. It’s truly been a pleasure.

Relaxing Weekend with good friends

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 27, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
This was a wonderful place to relax and reconnect with dear friends. Spacious well cared for accommodations. Views that you couldn't get enough of. Well appointed kitchen facility - because this of course is where we congregated, unless we were on the patio outside the kitchen! There was no need to leave, but if you did, Woodstock, Rhinebeck, and Kingston were all close, along with excellent hiking trails within minutes drive. The owners were helpful and attentive. Highly recommended.

Perfect place for Family Gathering!

We could not have chosen a better time to book Diane's amazing house. The fall colors were out in full force and we spent hours just looking out at the view. As everyone has said, the house is great, the property is great, the hiking is great. Specifically, I'd like to say that her property is also wonderfully handicap accessible. Full wheelchair accessibility and a great fully functioning accessible bathroom. The shower is not a roll-in, but is pretty workable with only about a 3" lip. Anyone who has tried to find a wheelchair accessible vacation house will be so thankful for this place! Thanks Diane!
