Overview

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.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Woodstock

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at Bristol Hill. What a pleasure, as always! The house is always spotless and has everything you need, and the views and the surrounding property are amazing. Diane is very easy to reach, should one need anything more. We will definitely come back again!

Our Christmas Home Away from home

  • 5 of 5

It is such a luxury to return each year to Bristol Hill for our family Christmas gathering. We are an adult family of five, whose overwhelming consensus has been to return - so that should tell you something! I was born and raised in Woodstock and am familiar with the area and most rental homes and this is my #1 choice for our Christmas accommodation. A property of this size requires constant vigilance and upkeep and not once in my return visits have I ever seen a drop in standards. The home is spotless and as numerous others have pointed out the kitchen is well equipped to actually use to prepare a true family dinner, just not make due with a few scant items for a weekend getaway. We cook for the holidays and I arrive at the property knowing that my holiday dinner won't be delayed for lack of cooking implements. The beds are comfortable, the duvets delightful and the bathrooms have that 50's tile and charm that I grew up with - we feel very at home here = thank you so much Diane and Barb for sharing!! While all of this is well, fine and good, the real heart of the property is Diane and Barb. It is their unobtrusive care and concern, their attention to detail and ensuring the drive is prepared for your arrival should you be coming in winter weather, that a shovel is left at the door for you even though they will be out with the plow and shoveling your walk anyway, to invisibly managing the trash in the alcove - all so you can enjoy your vacation and or holiday and not be hampered by inconvenience or the mundane. Expeditiously responding to emails, allowing a holiday package to be sent prearrival and returning your deposit; they get the business side as well as the hospitality side of owning a VRBO. Add the idyllic mountain setting and your vacation hideaway will be the envy of your friends. I know it was the envy of mine. See you next year!

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful respite here in late June. Our family of 4 (including two kids ages 5 and 7 who were convinced they had arrived in paradise) and 4 friends. Plenty of room to spread out, gorgeous views, pristine and extremely clean property. The pool was wonderful and there are even floats and toys for renters use. The kitchen is also to-die-for, very well equipped - imagine our delight when we found a whole cupboard full of spices! Not to mention all the basics such as flour, sugar, ketchup, mustard, etc. As a group of musicians and singers, we especially loved the piano and made ample use of it. There's even a pool table and plenty of puzzles for rainy days! We were there for 5 days, and while the town of Woodstock itself is charming, we didn't really feel the need to leave the property and explore! Diane and Barb are treasures and so very helpful, yet not at all intrusive. We can't wait to go back!

Catskill getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home with all the needed accessories. Three nicely appointed rooms for couples and two smaller rooms for singles. Grat kitchen with all the appliancies, spices and other items one needs for a short stay but does not want to go and buy. Lovely grounds with a good sized pool for relaxing. Owner lives in house behind but out od sight unless needed. Highly recommend.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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.
