Overview

Saugerties Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 7 (in beds)

Near H.I.T.S., Woodstock, skiing. Many original details including wide plank oaks floors in a sun-filled country kitchen. Guests can sit on the porch and overlook the property's meadow and gardens while the kids catch frogs and fireflys. The property sits on a quiet country road and has an open grassy area for play as well as meadow, marsh and wooded terrain. Huge catalpa trees provide nature's perfect jungle gym and also a branch for a tree swing. Kids can invent games in the playhouse.

Budget travel named Saugerties one of the coolest small towns in America-see link below

http://www.budgettravel.com/bt-dyn/content/article/2009/09/04/AR2009090402162.html

The FARMHOUSE: After looking at over 75 properties we fell in love with this farmhouse and after many obstacles were able to call it our home. Fixing it up has been our labor of love for over 20 years. So many of the original details remain and we have furnished it with a mix of primitives and contemporary pieces. We are a family of artists and have decorated the house with our artwork and our favorite flea market finds. The kitchen is bright with original wide pine floors and well equipped with the cookware you might need to make a big pot of soup with the garden's harvest. There are four bedrooms upstairs (with a pack and play available) as well one of the two bathrooms.

The GROUNDS: We hardly ever leave our property once we settle in. There is always something blooming in the yard or garden. Our daughter loves to play restaurant in the playhouse my husband built, or swing on the tree swing out by the barn. Playing in the stream-catching frogs and fireflies are favorite activities. There is open space to play as well as a wooded area, meadow and gardens--all easily seen from the porch where you can relax with your coffee or favorite cocktail.

Throw some seed on the feeder and wait for the neighborhood birds to gather--including a few variety of woodpeckers and finches. Be sure to keep on eye out for the turkeys passing through the yard!

Winter usually brings snow enough to sled on a tiny hill next to the house. Making a bonfire and watching sparks fly up into the clear, crisp, star-filled sky has been a New Years tradition for our extended family for many years.

The AREA: It's the Catskills! It's Woodstock! You probably know all about the area. Even still there are always new places to discover--the falls- the quaint park on the Hudson-the swimming hole with the rope swing. The area boasts 4-star restaurants, and fabulous theater as well as folk, rock and chamber music. You can launch your kayaks and paddle out to the Saugerties lighthouse for a swim and picnic or spend the day watching equestrian competitions at H.I.T.S. Woodstock has a rich musical history --Big Pink is a stones throw away-- and though Levon Helm of the Band recently passed away his daughter still hosts the MIdnight Ramble. Check out the Woodstock Film Festival, one of many festivals in the area. Everything you might want to do is close by, yet you dont need to leave the peaceful stream-side property to feel renewed.

Saugerties was also named one of the 'COOLEST' small towns in America by Budget Travel--see link below

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazingly wonderful time at the upstate house. We all agreed that it was a total score + so perfect for a relaxing weeking upstate. I hope to be able to make use of it again. I brought along my 2 yr old daughter, + she just loved the outdoor play house!

Beautiful Farm Property Lovingly Maintained

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at the property it was Thanksgiving evening and it had just snowed. The farmhouse was picture perfect! Inside, we were immediately comfortable and surrounded by beautiful objects of vintage type, perfect to make us feel we had stepped back in time. A large fireplace kept us warm and relaxed. It was quiet and peaceful except for the lovely sound of a brook outside.
Also, the property is wonderfully located between Saugerties and Woodstock.two great towns for dinning and shopping in antique stores and The Inquiring Mind, one of the best book stores in the area.
I can imagine how beautiful this place is in the summer. Also, the host was excellent and very available to make our stay great. A wonderful place !!

Picture Perfect Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at the property on Thanksgiving evening, it had just snowed. The farmhouse is slightly elevated over the farmstead, so it was really beautiful when we arrived. The house is absolutely charming and we felt comfortable immediately. There is a large fireplace and since it had snowed, we used the fireplace frequently. The house is filled with art and objects of interest. Mari, the owner could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Also, the property is excellently located between Woodstock and Saugerties, so perfect for visiting two delightful towns. Also, because it is wooded and has a stream, it was so peaceful. I can imagine it being beautiful in the Spring and Summer when everything is in bloom.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5
What an awesome time we had this past weekend. It was just what we needed to end a very stressful time. I think my husband is a new man! The house is amazing, just what I would think a charming farmhouse should be. The house is very clean, bright and cheerful.the property was fantastic. Country live at its bes, we had our morning coffee sitting on the front porch listing to the babbling brook that ran through the center of the property. My husband and I loved the hammock and my daughter love the rope sing hanging from the big tree just outside the barn. We enjoyed hikinging the woods as much as walking through the charming town. The perfect place for a relaxing time out of the city. I highly recommend the wonderful farmhouse!

Owner's Response: thank you Gail! I hope you can get up in the spring and see the property when things are blooming. The view from the hammock is even better then.

Christmas in the Woods!

  • 5 of 5
I came to the farmhouse for Christmas with my family, including my parents, sisters, and a couple of kids, and it was an unforgettable time! The property is just secluded enough, and the pictures of the house don't quite do it justice--it's so charming and warm. The bedrooms are well decorated and all of the beds were comfy. Our favorite room was definitely the spacious, sun-filled kitchen--we spent a LOT of time there cooking, or just talking, and my mom completely fell in love with the chickadees and titmice that would come for bird feed by the window every morning (and the shy cardinal that would show up if we were quiet enough). She even saw a deer leap over the ridge just out the window.

At night we'd build fires in the excellent fireplace, and in the afternoon it was great to sit on the porch with a cup of coffee and a blanket, looking out to the beautiful lawn and the peaceful stream. I would recommend the beautiful and fairly easy hike i went on with my father in nearby Sloan Gorge Preserve, which is in the direction of Indian Head mountain (what a backdrop!). The playhouse is perfect for kids, and luckily very visible from the kitchen so my sister could keep an eye on them playing.

Overall it was a warm, cozy house with plenty of space for 7 people and enough to do for 3 generations! I'd love to be back in the spring or summer so i can see the flowers in full bloom :)

Owner's Response: thank you!!
Its always great to hear that folks enjoy those special things about the house that we love too. Seeing the birds come to the feeder, especially sitting with a cup of coffee and a sketch book, is my favorite thing to do. There is a great variety of birds including owls, woodpeckers,turkeys and hawks that frequent the property as well as other wildlife.
My husband built the playhouse so he is always happy when it gets some use.
We love to have fires and often use the fire pit outside to celebrate the new year or to keep warm while we watch the night sky. thank you again! --m

Charming and Relaxed

  • 5 of 5
This home is a fabulous find for any traveler who wants a relaxing Catskills experience. The farm house is welcoming (as is the owner), very comfortable, and well equipped with a stocked kitchen, two bathrooms, four bedrooms (1 King, 2 Queens, and a Single), a low slung living room (with fireplace, TV in cabinet, and Wi-Fi), and both an enclosed and open porches for sitting. Ancient trees, a bridged stream, plenty of yard, and a mountain setting make this stay a real treasure. A fun, wooded 1.5 mile hiking experience is available within walking distance of the house, just west on Stoll Road.

Saugerties -Esopus River
Car: necessary

Our 1850's farmhouse sits on a quiet country road where 2 small streams connect. The porch overlooks the yard with lilacs, forsythia and peonies. A short walk across the stream brings you to the vegetable garden with tomatoes and herbs ready to be picked. Out by the barn a tree swing and hammock with a mountain view beckon. Though the house is in a remote location we are just minutes to the center of famed Woodstock--known for its 'hippie' vibe, music and art scene--join the weekly drum circle. In the other direction is downtown Saugerties where you will find an historic river town-its many antique shops a testament to it's rich history. The beauty of this area is well documented by the Hudson River School painters--Kaaterskill Falls and Thomas Cole's house Olana are nearby. Fishing and tubing in the Esopus, hiking and skiing, boating and swimming at sandy riveredge beaches or local swimming holes as well as golf, and tennis are all close by. Garlic festival-horse shows--here!
