ROMANTIC HIDDEN GEM W/ MT. VIEWS, WALK TO TOWN

Woodstock Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Treat yourself to a romantic getaway or personal retreat in your own private luxury cottage, on a quiet dead-end lane walking distance to the center of Woodstock ~ and just two hours from NYC! Enjoy the cultural attractions of this thriving and historic “colony of the arts”: theaters, clubs, galleries, boutiques, restaurants and cafes. Or stay home and luxuriate on your queen-size sultan-style sofa, basking in the sunlight streaming through the skylights 20 ft overhead! Explore the surrounding Catskill Mountains, or relax by your garden surrounded by flowers and tall grasses in the summer or next to a fire in the winter and admire the mountain view! You can prepare snacks and meals in your fully-equipped country kitchen, or treat yourself to gourmet meals at Woodstock's famed restaurants. At night, dim the rose-colored chandelier in the bedroom to a soft glow, stretch out on your queen-size bed with luxury linens, and watch the stars shine through the moon roof overhead.* The Blue Pearl truly is a hidden gem and oasis ~ what former guests have described as “a work of art' and a travel magazine recently called 'the lodging equivalent of a consciousness raising that inspires renewal of mind, body and spirit!'

Amenities include: high-speed wireless Internet access; TV/VCR/DVD player with a large screen monitor; library of books, games, CDs, videos and DVDs; two queen-size beds with luxury linens; comfortable air bed to sleep two additional people (6 max in cottage); spa robes and slippers; 20 ft. ceilings with skylights and ceiling fan; AC in the summer; gas-fueled fire stove and snowshoes in the winter; fully-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher; private parking for two cars; and a garden and outdoor sitting area with a gas grill, fire pit, Tiki torches and mountain views!

*Blackout blind for the bedroom skylight for the light sensitive sleepers!

I was not born in this country. I was born in France. Paris, to be more specific. From there I moved to Rome and from Rome I moved to New York City where I lived for 25 years in the East Village. I’ve also traveled quite a bit to exotic places: Nepal, India (six times), Algeria, Switzerland, Jamaica, Mexico, Morocco, Dominican Republic, Sicily, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Panama, and South Africa.

I‘ve been all around the world, but I’ve chosen to live in Woodstock. Why? The answer is simple: I was called here. For its beauty, tranquility, and community.

Melissa Eppard purchased this cottage in 1994

The history of the Blue Pearl and the land upon which it is built is a history rich with art, music, creativity, and self-expression. The previous owners were both artists. And before them, the home was owned by the legendary Ruth Ingalls, a grand dame who turned the property into a Creative Arts camp – a dynamic place where Bob Dylan and many other locals sent their children to learn, grow, and experience.

Jimi Hendrix once lived across the street. So did Jimmy Cobb, the legendary drummer who played with Miles Davis, George Bellows, the great American painter lived on the next block. And today, the tradition continues. Within a five-minute drive are the homes and studios of more than 40 artists – many of whom will be happy to show you their work (if we give them just a bit of notice).

From the outside, it is quite unassuming, appearing to be a modest Woodstock artist's cottage. Inside, however, the Tuscan-toned interior opens to reveal fabulous art, architectural details, and elegant furnishings with Eastern accents and romantic touches. Many who have been here liken it to a modern day sultan’s den – a secret place to renew, refresh, and rejoice.

The newly-renovated cottage features 20 ft. ceilings with skylights, polished wood floors, oriental carpets, fully-equipped kitchen, and two queen-size beds with luxury linens. One bed is positioned under a rose-colored chandelier and skylight. The other serves as a canopied, sultan-style sofa in the great room – a room that also contains a dining area, library, office, and cozy sitting area in front of the fire in the gas-fueled heat stove. Located on a quiet, private lane less than a mile from the center of town, the Blue Pearl includes a sunny meadow, a lush yard with gardens, and a private sitting area that provides a breathtaking view of the mountains.

Truly, the Blue Pearl is a hidden gem – what former guests have described as “a work of art' and a well-known travel magazine described as 'the lodging equivalent of a consciousness raising event that inspires renewal of mind, body and spirit.”

So, whether you are coming for a romantic getaway, personal retreat, or easy access to the many Hudson Valley sports, hiking trails, or cultural events, welcome! I trust your stay will be an unforgettable one.

My boyfriend and I had a marvelous stay at the Blue Pearl. The Blue Pearl truly lives up to its name "The Hidden Gem". It is located in a quiet, peaceful area surrounded by nature and its beautiful amenities. The interior is magnificent and shines all over. I would strongly recommend this rental to anyone who is interested in a unique and one of a kind experience. Thank you!!!

Like a museum

It's 3:00 in the afternoon. We planned to visit the monastery, Roosevelt's library, and take a walk through the charming town, but we're still here at the Blue Pearl! There was no place else we would rather be. The elegance of the decor was museum quality, indeed, with Evelyne's art work throughout the cottage,, it was a museum. And not just the paintings and photographs - as she explained when we arrived, this cottage was her 3 dimensional canvas. Comfort, elegance, beauty await you at the Blue Pearl. If this sounds like an advertisement, that's the kind of spell this place casts on you. It's been a week since our visit and we are still glowing.

Otherworldly

This place is otherworldly. From the colors of the fabrics to the soft lighting of the windows, this is the perfect Woodstock gem. The kitchen was of great help to us to be able to not have to leave, as you will never want to! But if you do, it is close enough for a hearty walk into town. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. And the bed is very comfortable and the decorations, esp. the artwork and the chandelier are quite beautiful. Overall a wonderful stay!
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your comments. We hope you choose the Blue Pearl as your getaway the next time you return to Woodstock!

Best Wishes,
Melissa

Girlfriend Getaway

Six of us stayed here for a girlfriend getaway in February 2014. We had an absolute blast. The space is warm and inviting, clean, and eclectic in style (much like the town of Woodstock!) We used the kitchen, which although small, is amply stocked w/dishes, silverware, pots and pans, coffee maker, etc. There is also a portable gas fireplace that adds ambiance and gives off additional heat for those extra chilly winter nights. The place is totally charming and perfect for a romantic getaway or fun w/e with friends. It is conveniently located close to the center of town, and a true gem.
