Charming 'Woodstockian' home in the Lake Hill section of Woodstock, NY, secluded amidst the glory of the Catskills, yet close to all the pleasures of the Hudson Valley.
There are 3 bedrooms with 3 queen size beds so it sleeps 6. However with some ingenuity an on premise queen size air mattress will accommodate more adults/children for sleeping.
Three baths - the home is a perfect setting for friends and family celebrations yet provides areas of privacy when needed, and cozy enough for a romantic couple getaway.
Surrounded by acres of nature, five minutes to Woodstock center, 'Town Green' and minutes to Phoenicia and Hunter Mountain, the home is clean and bright and will not disappoint you on any level, comfort, beauty, cleanliness, amenities or vibe. With three outdoor decks, this vacation, business, or small event home is beautiful in every season and available for all four seasonal rentals.
It boasts a living room fireplace, a wood stove in the artist’s studio, a TV and AC in every room—and in the living room for the film enthusiast a Samsung 58' LED TV entertainment center with soundbar, instant streaming Hulu Plus, Netflix, DVD, and two Bose stereos for the music lover.
The kitchen is small but gourmet—Wolfe Range, Viking, etc and has everything for all culinary needs.
The dining room is set for 6, but seats 10 - 12 with the table leaves. Nearby attractions are all that Woodstock offers: wonderful restaurants for takeout or delivery; music, theater, art; skiing, nature hikes near Overlook Mountain, the Ashokan Reservoir, and Cooper Lake Reservoir hike is one mile down the road.
Very convenient location if you are visiting for the Maverick Concerts, The Bearsville Theater, Woodstock Animal Sanctuary, The Woodstock Film Festival, The Levon Helm Rambles, The Woodstock Playhouse, any Woodstock Film Festival venue, The Bard Theater Festivals, The Saugerties H.I.T.S., The Saugerties Garlic Festival or any of the many local annual county fairs.
The NYC bus stops near the end of the driveway on Route 212, but a car makes getting around easier. This very comfortable home is secure, clean, cozy, faces south so you can view both sunrise and sunset.
There is an automatic whole-house generator which will come in handy as Woodstock is known for power outages - so not a concern for you as the power will always be 'on'
A handyman is available if needed and the home is extremely well maintained.
Well behaved, Frontline treated dogs considered (we love living creatures), smoking only outside on the lovely decks which overlook a Koi pond where you might spot a Bald Eagle.
Owner has extensive service/hotel experience, event planning and is eager to work with renters in order to build up a returning clientele base providing a satisfying, rewarding experience for guests responding specifically to unique needs as requested by all guests.
This rental has the cleanliness and amenities of a pricey hotel yet the cozy comfortable feeling of 'home.' Perfect location for celebrating spring's arrival, summer swimming hole activities, autumn leaf peeping and winter snow skiing.
We currently reside in the home (yup! we actually live here) and work in the art studio but travel a lot and feel that a house becomes a home only when always lived in. I am an artist so there is available for use a large pond side art studio for someone who might be looking for a painting holiday. Friends who come and stay love the peace and quiet that is offered. The house faces south so a sunrise is enjoyed every morning and a sunset every evening.
Woodstock is the perfect place to not only visit but to live. It offers easy access to NYC, Rhinebeck, Kingston, ski areas - Hunter, Phoenecia, Saugerties, local lively music activities, theater, Hudson Valley Art scene, a Ramble at Levon Helm's Barn, so much to do and see. Yet one is surrounded by the glorious views that inspired the Hudson Valley Painters like Thomas Cole, and Frederick Church. Woodstock is the heart of these artistic, creative, and historic traditions. Woodstock continues to embrace a vibrant contemporary artistic scene that is prevalent and always offering something for everyone. A nice friendly blend of city and country. This property is near all these activities however it is a quiet shangri la oasis, peacefully surrounded by nature. You might even spot a Bald Eagle gliding above the Koi pond. House is perfect for get 'togethers', and the property very conveniently located with easy road access to all of the local Hudson Valley. The grounds are lovely and it's 7 acreage lot is located next to hundreds of acres of undeveloped meadowlands and mountains. It's awesome! Just come - you will not be disappointed. If you have a special event or need some extra help with planning your stay I have event planning experience and will assist you with all to make your visit/vacation/celebration/romantic/friends/family get together getaway special. You will love it!
Winter offers a Dr. Zhivago snowy wonderland, Spring the lilacs, and tree frogs in Woodstock are unlike anywhere else, and the Iris garden will amaze, Summer, the pond offers mystical wonderment as one relaxes on the deck and listens to the bull frogs, and in fall the foliage is extraordinary. Truly beautiful year round. The hammock is on the deck for anyone adventurous enough to sleep out in summer, especially fun in August when the shooting stars are putting on a grand show. For long distance travelers (or anyone) owner will as a courtesy stock the fridge and cabinets with any specialized foods/beverages upon requests with an ordered via email shopping list (reimbursement via the refundable fee). The owner has stocked the home with toiletries that a guests may have forgotten to bring so anything one needs is truly available for use. This rental offers the cleanliness and thoughtfulness of a pricey hotel but yet all the cozy comforts that make it feel more like 'home'.
The home is near all Ashokan Reservoir activities and directly centered in between the Tibetan KTD and the Phoenecian Zen monasteries. The property is unique as it is centrally located with easy driveway access to Route 212, and yet hidden on many acres of total and secure privacy. It is near Wilson State Park in Mt. Tremper with easy access to biking, and hiking. It is also on the NYC bus route with an official stop within feet of my driveway entrance. The house is very private as it is situated unseen from any roads providing a retreat quality yet 3-5 miles in any direction to all that the Hudson Valley Catskill area offers, theater, great music, museums, antique centers, etc. The Woodstock Animal Sanctuary is within walking distance. There is much to do to entertain yourself with all the activities offered in any season in Woodstock or you could easily stay home to do nothing but lie in the hammock in warm weather, or cozy up to the fireplace in fall and winter. There are a multitude of festivals year round in the Hudson Valley area from The Maverick Concerts to The Bard College Theater Festivals to the Saugerties Garlic Festival, The Levon Helm barn Rambles, The Woodstock Film Festival and a number of many local county festive fairs. In autumn the fall foliage is a must see spectacle and nearby skiing resorts are minutes away for winter activities.
