Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms (3 Queen, 1 Twin) 3 full baths, pull-out sofa bed

Spacious, elegant, Woodstock Classic called a 'Jewel in Paradise' by one of our valued guests. (see reviews.) We pride ourselves on offering a home which is a beautifully furnished, 'one of a kind' Woodstock Classic combining old and new to create a striking contemporary feel. We can proudly say that all who have stayed here have been greatly pleased with the beauty and comfort of the house and the landscaped lawns and gardens, especially enjoyed by children. GREAT HOUSE FOR FAMILY REUNIONS AND/OR COUPLES TO SHARE with 4th twin bedroom and full sofa bed for extra guests. PLUS there is a GUEST COTTAGE with KING size bedroom providing additional space for larger groups. (See HomeAway listing 940329 http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p940329)

Quiet and private setting on 4 acres feels a world away from

civilization, yet a short walk (1/2 mile) into the vibrant center of Woodstock & even shorter 1/4 mile walk to the popular summer swimming stream with great swimming holes enjoyed by locals and visitors over the years.

Bluestone fireplace highlights Great Room. Floors are a pleasing mixture of wood, tile, slate, bluestone & carpeting. Open, spacious floor plan provides gathering areas as well as privacy for up to 3 couples or large family & extra beds for additional guests.

Large windows & skylights provide bright interior with views from every room onto lush gardens, rolling lawns & surrounding woods. Several decks and patios provide comfortable outdoor enjoyment.

Other amenities include DSL wireless Internet, cable TV, air conditioning, ceiling fans, fully equipped cook's eat-in kitchen plus a formal dining room that can seat up to 8.

Location of Property: This property is ideally located providing both quiet seclusion yet convenient access to Woodstock, which is one minute away by car or a comfortable 6-7 minute walk. The four acres are bordered by a wooded forest of native trees, including many white birch. hemlock & pine. Within the center of this border is the house, surrounded by landscaped gardens, stone walls and paths, and a sweeping lawn for badmitton, tossing a frisbee or just lolling about. The decks surround the house on two sides, creating a large gathering area as well as little private retreats. It is ideally situated for convenience AND a feeling of rural retreat. The property is reached by a non-thru country road where peace and quiet prevail, yet all the conveniences of Woodstock (shopping, restaurants, farmer's market, health food store) are but a short walk away. Car not required, especially for weekly stays as Trailways bus from NYC comes into Village & we fetch you & deliver you back to bus at end of lease.

Additional Rooms: There are several desks throughout the house, providing an ideal places to set up computers for those times when a little work is required. There is wireless internet and many comfortable spots to lounge about with laptops as well. The office provides a quiet get away when quiet and privacy is essential, and can provide extra bedroom space for one. Landline phone service is provided for local calls.. Cell phones DO work at this property location. (Many areas in Woodstock, there is spotty or no cell service.)

FOR LARGER GROUPS UP TO 10, Studio Guest Cottage may be available.

FAVORITE WITH HITS FAMILIES: This location offers maximum convenience to Woodstock Village (6 minute walk to village green) but is located on the east side of Woodstock, eliminating the need to go through Woodstock especially nice on busy weekends. This makes travel to Saugerties a breeze. When back at the property, the home, decks & grounds offer ample space to spread out and relax when returning after a busy day at the horse shows! The chraming village of Woodstock offers fine dining, great shopping and numerous galleries and entertainment at various venues. This property offers a rural retreat, convenience to Woodstock village, and easy drive to Saugerties horse shows giving you the best of the area in comfort, location and convenience!

This property is located within 1-45 miles of some great golf courses. We have a complete listing in our brochure.

Comfortable Quaint Family Home

  • 5 of 5
What a cute, comfortable, roomy family home! We enjoyed our stay so much and plan to come back again. The thing that is truly unique about this home is that the property is so large and wooded, that you feel like you are in the middle of the woods, but then you have a less than 5 minute walk to town. Janice, the host, is extremely helpful and provides lots of information about the house, grounds and town and also makes some excellent suggestions. We ordered the pot pies at Cub Market per her suggestion and trust me, they were amazing. We will be back again soon!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Six of us stayed in the house for Labor Day weekend and it was perfect. The house is huge, plenty of space to gather together for meals and games, and also plenty of spaces in the house for everyone to have their privacy and alone time. It's a short walk to town and to the swimming hole, and a short drive to a big grocery store - but we rarely felt any need to leave the house and the yard. I highly recommend it.

Serenity now!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot wait to be back in Woodstock and this lovely, enchanting home for some much needed R&R. Rain or shine, I always find what I'm looking for here.

One time while I was staying here, I broke my foot while walking through the village. The owners of this house brought me food and made sure I was comfortable! Can you believe it?

Love to you both, Janice and Tim.

What a beautiful home this is!! summer 2011

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed every bit of our week at Old Wagon. The place is airy well lit and very accomodating to my mom, sister, myself and the three little children we had with us. The grounds are beautiful and we loved being within walking distance to town and the creek yet we were out in the woods, what a great location. We witnessed passing deer and even a little fawn kept coming around to say hello. The parking area is spacious, the AC was perfect, washer dryer, the beds are comfortable, a beautiful piano in the quiet sitting area, the deck out back with the bar b que is so peaceful overlooking the trees and woods and made a perfect refuge paired with glass of wine after the kids went to bed. I would definately recommend this home!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about the property. I am so happy that you and family had such a great time. Your comments say better than I what I believe to be the qualities of Old Wagon - a place for family and friends to share good times building on relationships in a beautiful, relaxing environment that I have tried to create. Bonnie, I do hope you and your family will come back again and again - you were wonderful guests! It will be fun to watch the kids grow up - thanks so much for the photographs of you all enjoying your time on the property and in Woodstock!

ANOTHER AWESOME STAY!!

  • 5 of 5
I had the most wonderful time in Woodstock...again. The house was as magical as ever. It was hot so utilized the swimming whole quite a bit. Enjoyed some shopping and, of course, one of my favorite restaurants there, The Red Onion. Thank you, Janice.

We stayed here summer 2010 and fell in love with the place. So good we even tried to stay another week but it was already taken. House is very well appointed with great lounging spaces both inside & out. Short walk to town. An oasis of peace & calm and like us you won’t want to leave.

Owner's Response: Tony, we're hoping you will make a return visit especially since we were not able to accomodate your desire to stay on for that extra week last summer. You were wonderful guests and there's still so much to see and do in this area! We would love to have you come again. Thank you for your kind remarks and I do look forward to meeting you one day. Ann still speaks so fondly of you both!

Car: not necessary

This home was one of the artist cottages in the early 1900’s and has been lovingly expanded and renovated while maintaining the original core integrity. The addition of large windows and spacious living areas seamlessly opening onto one another creates great flow and beautiful light giving an open contemporary feeling.

The bedrooms are private retreats, each with bath, one with jacuzzi.. There is a pleasant sun room and office for your convenience. You are but a short walk to town, yet nestled on a 4 acre retreat which is a stone’s throw to local swimming stream.

The property captures the sun all day, and some have called it “the healing place where the sun always shines' even on cloudy days because the light in the house is so beautiful and is uplifting.

Woodstock offers natural beauty and versatility, fine dining, great walks, mountain climbing, fabulous shopping and much more. Come and enjoy our home. We love it and know you will too!
