This lovely Romantic Zen Cabin was featured in both NY Magazine and The NY Times as the spot to go to when vacationing in Woodstock.
Secluded, romantic, Japanese-styled designer's cabin is located down a private road, surrounded by acres of beautiful woods, with a small stream running down the hill beside the cabin, the perfect venue to become acquainted with nature.
This large non-Smoking cabin is over 1,000 sq ft and features wonderful views of the woods from every window. It has beautiful Asian slate floors, a cool slate shower and marble bathroom and the romantic claw foot bathtub in the living room which faces the deck and stream. The spacious bedroom has a writing desk with an old fashioned typewriter and is the perfect place to become inspired. The living area is furnished with an extremely comfortable futon sofa which folds out into a queen bed. The multimedia area, has a flat screen TV with basic cable channels as wifi is accessible throughout the cabin.
Wildlife abounds in the area, white-tailed deer (drive carefully at dusk), wild turkey and baby black bears are up and about. Not to mention the fox, squirrels and the dozens of species of birds that makes exploring this property very rewarding.
Only 1.7 miles to the center of Woodstock's famed shops cafes and Zagat rated restaurants. Take in a concert at the Kleinert, a performance at the Woodstock Playhouse or an independent film at Tinker Street Cinema. Hike nearby nature trails on Overlook Mountain, Poets Walk Park or the Ashokan Reservoir. This really is a year round destination: swimming holes abound in the summer, foliage in the fall is incredible, New York's best ski hills are only 30 minutes away for the winter, and the spring is simply magical. There are world class spas and restaurants, and fun shopping in the quirky town of Woodstock, America's most famous small town and birth place of the musical revolution of 1969.

I've enjoyed a diversified life with careers in Environmental Science, entertainment, real estate and design. I live in New York but grew up in Canada and Bermuda, two wildly different climes! When it comes to property I tend to prefer the extremes....extreme country, or extreme city, and that's one of the things I love about Woodstock. It's less than two hours from New York City, but it's a million miles away with respect to it's ambiance, culture and attitude. Woodstock is a fabulous combination of getting away from it all while still having plenty to do.
