SPECTACULAR SIX BEDROOM HOUSE WITH FULL SPA FACILITIES, SLEEPS 12+

Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description

25 Acre Estate with Pond, Stream, Orchard -- Walk to Town

This spectacular Woodstock estate home is the ideal spot for a family or group vacation. The 6,000+ square foot contemporary house has six bedrooms each with its own full bath; an indoor pool; a fully-equipped gym atrium with sauna, steambath, and hottub; huge gourmet kitchen and dining room with comfortable seating for twelve; and many other amenities. As you will see, this property has everything!

The house is minutes away from Woodstock, a nice walk to town. It lies at the end of a long private drive on 25 acres, including a 1/2 mile stretch of the Sawkill Stream. The landscaped area features a 1/4 acre pond, large lawn, flagstone patio and barbecue area, tire swing, fruit trees, and a berry garden.

The master bedroom suite on the main floor has a king-sized bed, stone gas-log fireplace, sitting area, cable television, and a window seat overlooking the pond. Across the hall is another large bedroom with king-sized bed and television. The upstairs level has four more large bedrooms, one with a queen bed, another with a full bed. The other two bedrooms each have a pair of twin beds and their own balconies.

The house is essentially a fully-equipped luxury spa. Off the main level is an atrium with an heated saline indoor lap pool (15'x40'), with an automatic retractable pool cover that keeps the room safe and dry. The atrium also has a full seating area, ping-pong table, and wood-burning stove.

At the rear of the house is another glass atrium with two levels. The main level holds a hot tub large enough to fit 8 adults. The upper level has a full gym, with treadmill, exercise bike, rowing machine, and weights, as well as another television. The gym also has its own full bathroom with a sauna and steam shower.

The main entertaining area includes a sunken living room with another stone gas-log fireplace; a family room with large television, massage chair, and traditional games; a dining area with a farm table that comfortably seats 12 adults; and a sun room that is our favorite room in the house.

The dining area is next to a gourmet kitchen that is perfect for large-scale entertaining. There is a Viking gas cooktop with six burners and a grill, a double electric oven, two dishwashers, and two Sub-Zero refrigerator freezers with icemakers -- as well as the three sinks, microwave oven, etc.

This being Woodstock, of course there must be music. A Sonos wireless system provides music in the living room, pool atrium, and on outdoor speakers. Three wireless routers provide high-speed internet throughout the house as well.

The house is owned, and frequently used, by a family in Westchester, NY, and is looked after by a local couple who are available to respond to any problems. As the owners have dogs and cats, we would not recommend the house to anyone with serious allergies; on the other hand, renters are welcome to bring dogs, who will have a great time.

PLEASE NOTE: NO SMOKING ALLOWED

A Note About Our Rates: We have raised our rates several times over our first six months as the house has been very popular with large parties who find it a bargain, and the maintenance costs (for pool, heating, etc.) have been correspondingly much higher than expected. We have also increased the security deposit as unfortunately one of our early renters proved irresponsible -- all of the others have been terrific in this regard. We only want responsible renters who are prepared to treat our house with respect.

(Further, please note that this is a large house with many mechanical items and it is possible that one or two amenities might not be working at any point in time -- for example, the steam shower was recently broken for two weeks while a part was on order and the built-in coffee maker is often out-of-commission (we have a regular coffee maker as well)). With the exception of the swimming pool, we do not make rent concessions for the occasional out-of-commission item.)

Amazing time - can't wait to come back

Amazing time - can't wait to come back
  • 5 of 5
First, wanted to extend my gratitude to Tracy who is the property manager for this property. She was very responsive and patient with answering all my questions. We ended up driving through a rain storm which caused us to be unexpectedly 2 1/2 hours later when we initially told her but she was still smiling and happy that we just got there safely to let us into the property. Upon arrival, everything was super clean and organized and as guests we certainly felt like she went above and beyond what you can expect for a rental house. Towels were laid where needed. The kitchen was spotless. The beds were all well made and clean.

Next, the house. The house is amazing. The property owners should be proud of such an amazing property they own. I was with a large group of friends and even though there was 15 of us and there was so much room that we had to spend some time looking for someone if they weren't around! But that's not to say there isn't enough room for all of us to hang around. Infact, there was plenty of room around the dining table for all of us to share a meal together which is hard to do with such a large group. FYI - the kitchen is well designed and has lots of room for cooking. I believe over time groups have randomly left kitchen tools and cooking things since there was a ridiculously vast selection of tools you can use (forgot tongs at home...don't worry there's at least 5 here). They even had a Thermapen in the drawers!

The yard was spectacular and spacious. We played a large game of Wiffleball out there without needing to compromise space. The pictures do not do the pool justice...we fit 10 grown adult men in there at one point and we only took up maybe 1/3 of the pool. The hot-tub/sauna/steam/exercise rooms were great additions for the weekend. There was just so variety to this house that everyone had a great time.

Rarely do I find rentals matching or come close to the description of their listing. This rental really exceeds the expectation from this listing. I just hope the owners continue to rent this place to responsible groups so that we can come back and enjoy this place again in the future.

Epic Bachelor Party Weekend

  • 5 of 5
I hosted my brother's bachelor party here this past weekend and it far exceeded our expectations. I wouldn't be surprised if this house was featured on TV at one point as it leaves quite the impression. Every door reveals something new and there are tons of things to occupy your time inside the house. Plenty of sleeping options (beds, couches, blow-up mattresses, etc.) for the 14 guys we had there over the weekend.

The front yard was big enough that we were able to do all our outdoor activities there and the speakers were outdoors as well so the party could continue. I cooked up a storm with my buddies and it was easy with all the space and appliances. Oh, and there are (3) dishwashers!

The owners are more than generous with the use of their house, tools, and supplies. When the fire alarm went off (cooking without the vent on...) the caretaker called us immediately and guided me through to shut it off and what to tell the fire marshal. The fun facts in the booklet in the kitchen were a hit too (there used to be a helipad on the grounds!).

Now the brief negatives: the house isn't brand spanking new, but it has a lot of character. It's someone else's house, not a hotel, so be sure to respect that. For the price, you'd think you are in a hotel, but I'd rather take the freedom and color of a place like this. Some exterior panels have broken off, but it's purely aesthetic and some of the doors are a tad questionable. It's a lot of house, which takes a long time to tidy up and clear out. You need an owners manual for the lighting since there are SO MANY switches. The ping pong paddles are ancient, but whatever...

Overall disappointed especially for the price. Many repairs needed.

  • 2 of 5
We rented this house to gather over christmas. The house was sorely in need of a handyman but after I mentioned problems on the first and second day to the caretaker with nothing done I stopped making her aware of the problems and chose to give her a list of all the issues we had while there. Here are some of our email exchanges.

From us: Though the house and property are beautiful there are definitely some problems that should not be an issue in a house for this price. Some are actually dangerous particularly the stool, fire extinguisher and unadjusted subzero. Here is a list of the problems we have found over our 2 days.
Built in coffee maker broken
Handle from sun room comes out of door
Glass in tv cabinet falls out
Area of the hottub where water goes into filter is not attached
Bar stool broken and dangerous
Wooden vent grate broken
One of the upstairs shower control is broken and impossible to adjust temperature
Left downstairs bedroom bathroom smells like sewage
Multiple toilets rock
Beer cans around the property
Subzeros should really be adjusted so they don't move and are easier to open.
Amped wireless didn't work at all
Sonos only worked in the living room
Steam room wouldn't work.
Power on bike in gym doesn't work
DVD player remote is missing and hard to get to play anything.
Fire extinguisher is kitchen is empty and says recharge.
Multiple light bulbs are out or missing.
I assume the owners would rather we mention this directly than in a review of the property. For the high cost our experience should have been better.
Response:I as well as the owners understand your issues. We both apologize for that. Some of the issues are just things that come with renting and some just happen for reasons out of our control. The issues that you have mentioned have never been an issue before. If you would have called me I would have come over to fix. We have rectified your issues and hope you will be back in the future.
I emailed back mentioning that I had contacted the her with no one coming over to fix anything and that some of the issue were a safety hazard (broken chairs, empty fire extinguisher and moving fridges) and that we should get a discount since we had so many problems.

Ultimately they gave me $100 off per night and returned $200 that we paid for higher pool heat. I said they should do better, response was

"The owners won't budge.. They said they will live with one bad review ..."

Owner's Response: It is difficult not to become emotional in defending our second home, which is very dear to us and, from all the feedback received during this first year renting, well appreciated by most of our guests. This review prompts several reactions.

First, most of these criticisms are either petty, silly, or outright wrong. For example, the expensive and complex built-in Miele coffee maker was in fact working (to be fair, we may have incorrectly said it was out of order) as was, more importantly, the less expensive Mr. Coffee machine on the adjacent counter. The filter cover on the hot tub isn't supposed to be fixed in place, it is designed to float up and down as a skimmer. Yes, when snow melted immediately before the rental one or two beer cans left outside by a prior renter were revealed; sorry you had to see that. In a house with at least 150 light fixtures (which we are in the process of converting to LED), perhaps 3 or 4 bulbs were out. The exercise bike power worked fine, but the bike was not plugged in. And so on. It is true that the backs of the bar stools were wobbly, which is not good; we had tightened them repeatedly but the screws kept coming out, so after this renter we gave up and removed them entirely.

Such issues are inevitable in a house of this size which is rented almost every week. Rather than enjoying themselves as others clearly have, these renters regrettably spent their time cataloguing nits in an apparent attempt to reduce the agreed-upon rate. As the e-mail correspondence makes clear, this was an attempt at "review extortion" to which we refused to succomb ("I assume the owners would rather we mention this directly than in a review of the property.")

Our house is very large, very luxurious, and very expensive to maintain. We are entirely comfortable with our rates, as have been the vast majority of our guests. If you are believe the rates are too high, we do not want you to rent the house.

Jaw Dropping Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5
Our daughter, Emily, was married Saturday 10/5, at the local Byrdcliffe Barn and we rented this beautiful home to accommodate family members coming in from all over the country for the weekend wedding. When you enter the house, the size is so surprisingly large and jaw-dropping gorgeous that you'll know it will be a huge hit with everyone coming in for the visit. (better than the shots!) We cooked for 18 people on Friday night and we all sat at the huge table in the dining area. We had no trouble recruiting help for cooking and cleaning up since it was a pleasure to work in that dream kitchen. "I want this sink" was a common comment. My brothers and two of my daughter's friends took full advantage of the amenities on more than one evening! Swimming in the pool, soaking in the hot tub, enjoying the sauna and steam room...some even exercised! Mornings were spent sitting in the sun room with our feet up with a cup of coffee enjoying the large family of deer who walked right up to the patio area...we had 7 deer at one time. There is also a resident great blue heron at the pond along with lots of turtles and fish to observe. The beds are very comfortable and the down pillows,comforters,and lovely linens added to our pleasure. The only thing that baffled us was figuring out how to use the numerous light switches and which one worked which light....got it by Friday, though. All in all, this house was wonderful...it really added to the pleasure of us all getting together again after years apart. We couldn't have provided any nicer stay for our extended family for this momentous occasion than this house. Everyone was thrilled. Thank you so much for the use of your wonderful home. We hope to return in the future. Highly recommended!
