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!

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.

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.

The Woods Retreat is a secluded haven, far away from the every day yet within reach of everything the Hudson Valley has to offer. If you are looking for an escape from the constant intrusions of your work day, if you would love to hear the sound of true silence, or just the wind whispering through the trees, then a weekend at the Woods Retreat is the very respite you are seeking. There's no Internet and no cable tv. And, while there is cell service most of our guests choose to turn their phones off and let the quiet wash over them!
