Overview

Marbletown House Rental Photos and Description

Open, loft-like space with a full kitchen, a wood stove, and full bath.

Just 2 hours from the GWB, Woods Retreat is located in the heart of Ulster County, and the foothills of the Catskill mountains in the High Falls/Stone Ridge area. Close to New Paltz, Kingston, Woodstock, Mohonk Mountain, and the Ashokan reservoir, the Woods Retreat is right across the river from Rhinebeck, Hyde Park, and Poughkeepsie.

This unique house with beautiful views of the Catskills was built and designed as a peaceful get-away with modern comforts, using local wood & stone and an open floor plan. It's quiet and secluded while being a short distance [5 miles] from a major road. The area is known for its abundance of great restaurants, art galleries, antiquing, and hiking as well as rock climbing in the Shawangunks and many historic sites. The Belleayre and Hunter Mountain ski region is within an hour's drive.

Whether you're looking for a quiet, secluded weekend away, or a private & special base from which to venture forth, the Woods Retreat is an experience not to be missed!

Here's what some of our guests have written in our guest book:

Absolutely gorgeous... exactly what we were hoping for!... romantic, relaxing, secluded, private, charming, cozy, ....well done!

We had a truly memorable stay at this enchanted hideaway! Thank you for sharing this space with others — it's magical!

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful place! ... We found everything we were looking for and even more.

Thank you so much, you know how to do it right! This was perfect.

The Woods Retreat: Take a break from your hectic work-week and escape to New York's scenic Hudson Valley. At the Woods Retreat you'll find a secluded get-away, far from the hectic demands of your work day. Nestled at the top of a forested ridge you'll have views of the Catskill Mountains surrounding the Shokan reservoir to the north-west. You'll find a peaceful, quiet retreat with all of your needs within reach.

The Hudson Valley: Only 2 hours from Manhattan, nearby Stone Ridge & High Falls are popular weekend go-to places for many urban dwellers. There's an excellent selection of restaurants within a 6 mile radius, as well as sophisticated shops and lots of galleries and antique stores. Woodstock, Kingston, [one of the top ten best cities in the country to buy real estate, as reported on NBC's Today Show], are nearby. New Paltz is just over the ridge and Rhinebeck & Hyde Park are directly across the Hudson River. Ulster County has hiking, mountains, skiing, historical sights, rivers, lakes and streams, and more artists per capita than any other New York county.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were very pleased upon our arrival to find Donna waiting and the cabin in very good condition. I would say the pix don't do it justice. The cabin is surrounded by woods. The sounds of the woods at night make for a very relaxing sleep. All the appliances work very well. Soaps and shower things are exquisitely upscale. Highly recommended. The cabin is located in a nice farming area of Ulster county. You are within 30 minutes of some great hiking, pick-ur-own farms and vineyards in Gardiner.

I can't say enough wonderful things about this cabin and the hosts, Donna & Dan! My boyfriend and I spent the weekend there and had a wonderful time. The area is beautiful with lots to do and see and tons of activities. But even better is the cabin -- it's beautiful, secluded, well-maintained and has so much attention to detail. It has a warmth and we felt like spending most of our time there - cooking dinner and spending time roaming the property. If you're looking for an escape from the city, a return to nature and a beautiful, comfortable setting to do so, then this is your place! Can't wait to go back.

Romantic, warm, cozy, relaxing, secluded Cabin.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I (along with our two Boston Terriers Dogs) were seeking a last minute getaway after learning that my Mother was diagnose with Breast Cancer. We were in need of some time away from our busy lives and we were searching for Secluded Location in hopes of gathering our thoughts, strength, relaxation and focus on my Mother's Health once we return back home. Well we certainly achieved our Goal!! We were greeted upon our arrival by Donna, whom welcome us and gave us a walk threw of the entire Cabin. The "Woods Cabin" was the perfect getaway. It is full of windows which allows the warm sun to fill up the cabin with light and warmth during the day. The view from all angles are of everlasting trees and mountains. The stove fireplace at night provides the cozy feeling of relaxation and romance. The beautiful stone wall and high ceilings make the cabin an fabulous open space. The bathroom has huge window which provides great view while laying in the jacuzzi surrounded with candles for relaxation. The loft is a open area with a comfortable Queen size bed with majestic views. No need for curtains nor shades on windows there is noone in sight only deers and nature. The Cabin is well equipped with TV, Cable, Wireless Internet, Fully Stocked Kitchen, Washer, Dryer and very clean. We truly Loved It and can not wait to return back. Once again Thank You, Donna we appreciate you sharing your Cabin in "The Woods" with us. God Bless. Juanita & Carlos, Bronx, New York.

AWESOME Sunsets and Starlit nights

My husband and I and our 2 dogs felt extremely at home at this serene resort in the Woods. We had everything we needed for a Home away from Home. We loved the place so much, we did most of our cooking there, as everything needed for cooking was available, along with a variety of spices and local coffee beans! The woodburner was perfect for some chilly fall nights. We did have time for drives around the area and a little hiking as well. Our 'boys' were very comfortable there as well. We highly recommend this Retreat!

Lovely weekend in the Woods

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I absolutely loved this cabin. One of the owners was there to greet us and show us around. The place is stocked with all the little things you might need but wouldn't think to bring, lending a homey safe warmth to an already inviting atmosphere. Everything is super clean and the upstairs bathoom in particular was gorgeous. The place is deep in the woods and the wildlife is quite abundant- look out for the tiny frogs, they were our favourite. We would definitely stay here again.

excellent-

  • 5 of 5
the house is absolutely beautiful- the area serene. I had the place for three months and brought a piano in to do some writing and playing outside of new york city where i live (the acoustics are pretty good if you're curious).
The owners were great, only presence came when there was an internet glitch which was quickly fixed. There is a useful list of restaurants and grocery stores, the appliances all worked like new...

good all around- was well worth it.
