Nestled on 4 acres, our 2400 square footage house offers a nice open main floor with kitchen/dining areas filled with sun light thanks to three floor to ceiling windows overlooking the yard (with magnificent butterfly bushes) with Southern exposure. Sliding doors open from the dining room to the deck - very convenient to entertain in summer time with outdoor furniture and BBQ.
The living room is a cozy seating area with sofas facing a burning stove which heats up nicely the room in the winter.
Adjacent to the living room, our TV/family room enables you to relax in a comfy sofa or for the kids to be creative at a desk to do some art work or homework depending on their mood... that room is also filled with sun with a Southern and Western exposure with a bow window facing the pond. A nice place to observe wild life sometimes...
On that same floor, there is another section with a bathroom (shower), the laundry room and a guest bedroom with a queen bed.
Upstairs, you will find the master bedroom with a queen bed, very bright (three exposures and bow windows), facing the yard and a balcony looking over the stream and the pond. Across from it there is a room with a single bed and a toddler bed and the last room is set up with two single beds. There is another bathroom upstairs with bath tub/shower (combined).
We fell in love with Woodstock and vicinity couple years ago coming up from the city to 'check it out'.
We grew up in France, in the South, in the vineyards where the sun and outdoor experiences were daily - we wanted our kids to grow up with significant experiences with nature and thought this could be a very cool place for them. We love summers' outings and skiing in the winter, so the Catskills is the great combination of all we needed!!!
Right away the laid back atmosphere of the area, the wonderful Catskills region with so many outdoors possibilities all year round and the open mind of this specific 70's movement suited us.
Fanny Bruguier purchased this house in 2007
Finding this house was not easy... We knew we wanted open floor plan, a lot of light but at the same time to feel cozy inside on winter days.
We found it and would be more than happy to share it with our guests!
We wanted our girls to be able to run, bike, go in the woods and our property is set on 4 acres on pretty flat ground which makes it easy for them to go have fun and for us to watch them, relaxing from the deck or from our Adirondack chairs/hammock in the yard. The house is contemporary with a country farm style, filled with sun light and very convenient to live in. We like to have friends over and the open floor plan is great to do so; have dinners in the living room as well as entertain on the deck with outdoor furniture and BBQ.
We all had a tremendous time Fanny - the house and grounds are really beautiful and easy to reach from NYC.
We shall be back (and will never ever switch anything off again without asking ;-)
We had a lovely New Year in Woodstock, NY. Great place for 2 families. We skied at Windham for a day and then visited the surrounding area.
Loved the fire and the house. Property clean and warm with everything we needed.
Everything about this house worked out great and was just what we were looking for. It was very clean, convenient, comfortable and exactly as described in the listing. Thank-you for a great stay.
we stayed with our two daughters for four nights in august 2014 in this well equipped and beautiful family home, in a secluded woodland setting a few miles from both Woodstock and Saugerties. there is enough space both to relax and also to occupy the family at the house, and also nearby. we wished we could stay for longer as we still had plenty to do. mind you, we'd have been very happy to just chill for longer and look out for deer in the woods right beside us - and keep reminding the girls of the possibility of bears
WOW! They've done such an incredible job with this property. We spent a fabulous Memorial Day Weekend here with family (including a 2-year old!) and everyone was right at home. Close to Saugerties and Woodstock (including a fantastic hike), the house also boasts modern finishes/amenities, huge porch, and leafy environs. All in all, it was a great house that was hard to leave. Thanks for a wonderful, long weekeend Fanny!
Our family of 6 stayed here for a couple days in the spring. The house was in fantastic shape and very clean. Our older boys had a blast running around in the woods, jumping over the creek (and in it sometimes!), and swinging on the rope swing. And our younger girls had fun playing in the huge yard and spreading out their dolls in the large sun room.
The house was large with plenty of room to spread out and relax. We had a wonderful time. Fanny was very attentive in making sure we arrived okay and that the house was in good order (which it was).
We loved this house and we hope to stay here again.
We spent two marvelous days at this property which exceeded all of our expectations.
Everything in the house was designed for comfort. We immediately felt there at home and pretty much did not leave the house!!
For families with young kids - this is the place for you. Very kids friendly home with a sunny play room right off the living room.
We couldn't ask for more and can't wait to visit again when it's warmer... :)
Charming Country Farm Style house located on a very cute back road, halfway between Saugerties and Woodstock (10 min drive) and only 15 min from HITS grounds.
Right in the location of the Hippies' area from the 70's, Woodstock and Saugerties have a lot to offer: restaurants wise, great artistic lives (Byrdcliff Colony of Art, the Waam...Saugerties Art Studios Tour...), Woodstock Playhouse for fantastic Broadway performances, Bear Theater for some music concerts, Maverick concerts festival (music in the woods), the mythic Levon Helm's Studio with the Midnight Rambles....the movie festival in the fall...fabulous horse shows at HITS ... Saugerties garlic festival...
Great outdoor experiences for all ages, from horse back riding, golfing to playing tennis... You will never be bored!!!
In the mood to stretch up your body and get some positive energy? Yoga Studios are numerous and fabulous...Shakti Yoga, Euphoria, WoodstockYogaCenter... to name a few!
Feel like enjoying the Catskills Mountains? Overlook Mountain is fun to hike - from the Fire Tower the view on the Hudson Valley is gorgeous on a bright sunny day.
Boating, canoeing or even tubing, water skiing? a quick drive to Saugerties' marina and you will enjoy the beauty of the Hudson River; feel the peaceful atmosphere at Saugerties' lighthouse...and enjoy the summer's sunset (with a glass of wine... it's awesome).
In the winter, there are plenty activities with ski areas near by (Hunter, Windham, Belleyare), the Kawanis Ice rink in Saugerties or simply sledding in the yard!
Very kid friendly, the property is set on 4 acres, the ground is pretty flat (easy to play on, bike on etc...) with a stream passing thru, a cute little pond with 'Manhattan Island' where kids love to catch frogs, salamanders... There's a swing for little ones or even grown up to have fun with, different outdoors games and adirondacks chairs to relax as kids are playing in the yard.
The Southern exposure of the house and floor to ceiling windows offer a great sunlight all day long - even in winter time!
A big red barn/garage is also part of the property - we use it as tools, toys storage but our kids use it as a 'art studio' sometimes...
