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!

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.
Our friends’ getaway weekend at The Woods Retreat was tantalizingly short! We arrived on a cold, snowy night, and could immediately see that creative minds and keen eyes had selected and provided us with every possible amenity. All there was to do was thoroughly relax and indulge ourselves in warmth and comfort. The property was expansive, the views breathtaking. We will definitely book again, and we recommend it to all!

We grabbed the dogs and split from the city for a quick 3-day breath of fresh air. Over the radio, reports of the great storm of 2015, it was to be big, historic, legendary. Hell, what better place to be snowed-in, we thought. Well, the great snow-storm turned out to be a bust... but the cabin proved to be anything but. The property is secluded and romantic, the house is beautiful - you can see the love and care in the construction, warm wood, and clean stone. Well stocked kitchen, with quality cookware. There's a real feng shui going on. The property surrounding the house is remote... great for hiking around with the hounds. Oh, there are also deer up the kazoo. We will definitely return, and Donna is a very, very cool lady.
This place was absolutely beautiful! Property is completely private and clean. Owners were wonderful to work with. We will definitely be back! ~Lynn and Dave
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.
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.
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!

The Woods Retreat is a secluded haven, far away from the every day yet within reach of everything the Hudson Valley has to offer.

We now have internet and satellite TV if you need to stay connected and, while there is cell service most of our guests choose to turn their phones off and let the quiet wash over them!
