WALK TO TOWN FROM THIS CHIC, PRIVATE, 4-ACRE COTTAGE W/ WOOD BURNING FIREPLACE

Woodstock Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, meditation room, woodland view, sleeps 2

Our house. A loft, but not lofty. Cute, but not kitschy. Cool, but not cold. And close to absolutely everything. Near the center of town, yet tucked away from it all, Woodstock Haven is set well-back from the road on four private acres. We're within walking distance to the NYC bus, so no car is necessary. But if you have wheels; we have off-street parking. Rustic on the outside, luxurious on the inside, it's a modern oasis replete with soaring cathedral ceilings, nine-foot tall southerly windows, reclaimed cherry floors, stainless steel appliances, a deep soaking tub for two, air conditioning, a wood burning fireplace, plus free wi-fi. Add the long outdoor deck with a view of nothing but woods and gardens, and you have a perfect, romantic couple's retreat. While the meditation room could serve as a guest room, because there is only one bathroom off the loft bedroom, the Haven is best enjoyed as a romantic couple's getaway or a retreat for a couple with young children. For couples traveling together, we are happy to recommend neighboring rentals (if you'd like to lodge separately) or larger properties that could accommodate everyone. We're an environmentally friendly home. Passive solar, radiant heat, on demand water heater, all organic cleansers and soaps, HEPA vacuum, VOC-free paint.

Interior Features: Lie in bed and gaze at the stars through three large picture windows at your feet as you luxuriate in 600 thread count organic cotton sheets. Stretch out on the chaise by the fire with a throw and a book. Watch the sun make kaleidoscope patterns on the floor as it passes through our glorious, 10-foot tall Gothic stained glass window. Or retreat to the meditation room with its softly flowing tapestries and many, many, many pillows. Enjoy a glass of wine on the deck and listen to the shushing of the trees. Perhaps you'll have a visit from one of our deer, turkeys, rabbits, red tailed hawks or fox. Take advantage of our yoga and pilates dvds; or book a private training session or massage here at the Haven. Make scones in our chef-quality convection oven. Barbecue on the grill. Find a spot in the garden and watch the bees. Snooze in the hammock. Wend your way through our woods.

Nearby Activities: Should you venture away from paradise, the town, the swimming hole, restaurants and shops are only a few steps away. Rent a bike and peddle Woodstock’s quaint village roads. On your way through town center, stop at the local farmer's market, flea market or one of two organic supermarkets and fill your baskets to the brim with fresh fruits and produce. If free-range chicken and organic beef are in your diet, stop at the Woodstock Meats, too. If yoga is your thing, try the Woodstock Yoga Center. All are within easy walking distance.

We're Environmentally Friendly: The Woodstock Haven was constructed using green building techniques. We have passive solar, radiant heat, and an on-demand water heater that never runs out. We use all organic cleansers, soaps, and low VOC paints. Visit our website below

I'm a writer who enjoys playing with color in my spare time. Gardening has become something of an obsession.

Raye, Woodstock Haven purchased this cottage in 2003

We wanted something close to town so we wouldn't need a car. At the same time, we didn't want to be sandwiched between neighbors - we already have that experience in our apartment. This property definitely fit the bill: it feels as if we're in the middle of nowhere, but we're less than 1/2 mile from everything. We loved having the swimming hole across the street and all our tall trees on the acreage in back. The property is private, but not remote.

The stained glass window is utterly mesmerizing. The soaking tub is decadently luxurious (along with so many other touches in the house - DWR, Calvin Klein, Angela Adams, Modernica furnishings, original art works by up and coming and established painters, mixed in with eclectic flea market finds). It's cozy enough for a couple - you don't feel like you're wasting a lot of space - but if friends join you, the meditation room allows everyone to have adequate privacy. The 24-foot high ceilings and the wall of windows make the house feel larger than it is and keep it flooded with sunlight. Unlike many 'in town' cottages, The Haven truly is private, set well-back from both the road and neighbors. And because it's new construction, the cottage does not have the issues older homes have (but does have all of the charm.) We love giving people the opportunity to experience what it's like to live in Woodstock, even if it's only for a little while. And they couldn't pick a better location for that experience than the Haven.

We want to live here!

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I visited the Woodstock Haven for three nights in December 2013 after having just gotten engaged whilst visiting NYC. Firstly, I have never wanted to live somewhere so much in all my life. The owners Raye and Ken have thought of everything right down to the last detail including Le Creuset cookware which we were especially excited about! The bathroom was a sanctuary, the garden was magic, the kitchen unbelievable, the bedroom perfect, the lounge area fabulous and the artwork beautiful and inspiring. The lady that greeted us was not Raye, it was her property manager who was also wonderful and gave us a great tour of the cottage. Raye kept in touch over email during our stay to make sure that everything was going well, she was so lovely. We were snowed in overnight which was fine with us as we didn’t need to go anywhere however, a local kindly ploughed his way up the drive and set our car free. The cottage is spectacular and both of us would live there if we could! The centre of town was easily accessible on foot and has everything you need including great cafes and shops. We hope to be back one day in the future and we happily recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing escape away.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5
the home is adorable with lots of little perks including spinning chairs, chaise lounges, fireplace that warms the heart, a fully stocked kitchen...
loved cooking with friends, chatting by the fire, balcony stargazing... even during off season it's a beautiful view!
Owner is very nice and extremely accommodating. Would go back in a heartbeat - looking forward to seeing it in other seasons.

Wonderful, relaxing birthday trip

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Woodstock Haven in December 2013 for my birthday and it was simply amazing. So cozy and relaxing. The decor was beautifully put together, I especially loved the kitchen! Everything you could possibly need and very thorough instructions for everything in the house. Also, Raye the owner was wonderful, she's super friendly and gave us all the details of the area, where to eat, hike, etc. Oh and the fireplace was great. We will definitely be back in the spring to check out the gardens.

Beautiful, updated house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived we knew we were going to have a comfortable, relaxing vacation. Raye was a perfect host showing us everything we needed to know before promptly showing herself out. (However, Raye was immediately available when we had questions and even checked in on the first night to make sure there wasn't anything else we needed.) The house is gorgeous with updated appliances, a beautiful kitchen, impeccable furnishings and decor that still maintains a cozy, comfortable vibe. Sometimes I am skeptical of pet friendly accomodations but it's as if a dog has never stepped into the house! The house was tidy and clean and Raye even put out fresh flowers before we arrived. The yard is spacious and I can only imagine it in the spring (unfortunately we had some rain during our visit but that just meant we were able to spend more time relaxing in front of the fire and watching movies through Netflix on the Roku.) The location of the house is also great since it's just a short walk into town for shopping, lunch or a liquor store. I highly recommend this house to a couple with a dog or small child. It was absolutely perfect and we hope to stay again soon!

Owner's Response: Yay! Glad you guys had a great time! Please come back soon! I always check-in by text or email after the first night to make sure guests aren't having difficulties getting the fire going, working the TV, finding the WiFi password - that kind of thing. If they are, we're happy to give online tutorials (or even drive over to help, if need be.) And thank you for the compliments about our tidy little home! It makes us very happy to hear that all our efforts and attention to detail show. The bulk of our renters don't have pets. For that reason, we're extremely particular about what we expect from our pet guests - We want the cottage to be spotless for the next people, too. Thank you for being so conscientious about all the doggie-rules. Hurry back!

Close to Nature and Close to Town

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about Woodstock Haven! It's a fabulous place to stay in so many ways. So private and with so much nature all around, yet town is an easy walk away. The views of the garden are gorgeous in every part of the house. The whole place is absolutely beautiful, great artwork everywhere... The details of the decor are amazing. Every room is all anyone could want with lots of extras, music, movies and more. The stargazing from the upper deck is just fantastic. And Raye is about the best hostess one could hope for!
