A WOODSTOCK FAMILY FAVORITE – PRIVATE, YET NEAR EVERYTHING!

Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms/3 Bath Sleeps 6/7 Spacious Yard For Chilling Out or Entertaining

“Classically American,” our family home on the edge of Woodstock sleeps six to seven people. Keywords are welcoming, comfortable, convenient, character and color, all with an international flavor! Newly furnished for cozy comfort and fully equipped it.

The name of our house—Shanti Neer—means place of peace. It is a serene and spacious 2+ acre property. It is an ideal setting for family and friends to gather. The back yard is a great place for fun and games, and the Weber grill, screened dining-deck, and picnic tables are all ready for outdoor eating and relaxing.

All hardwood floors downstairs and new bamboo floors upstairs. Bedrooms are all upstairs and include two queen bedrooms and a bedroom with two twin beds, each with special new non-allergenic, soy foam mattresses. The fourth bedroom has a new, full-size, sofa-bed plus a desk for anyone with work to do or a book to write! Master bedroom and bathroom are en-suite, and there is a second full bathroom upstairs in the hall. A third full bathroom is on the first floor.

The colorful country kitchen has everything you need to make the best cup of coffee or cook up a storm, and it is laid out so that more than one cook can enjoy it at the same time! New appliances include a gas range top, double electric ovens, microwave, etc. The 28-ft open-plan kitchen/dining room is bright and airy and includes a table that seats 6 - 10. All ready for family breakfasts, a down-home meal, a sophisticated dinner party or a special celebration!

It’s an easy few steps round the brick wall divider into to the welcoming living room, where an original stunning diptych on the wall lends a soothing, restful feel to the space, and where everyone can comfortably sink into sofas to chill-out, talk, read, snooze or savor!

And a few steps from there, an inviting East-meets-West TV room/den boasts a stunning oriental carpet, embroidered pillows and hand-woven throws strewn over the love-seat and sofa. A new Samsung 46” TV is tucked away into a handsome Chinese cinnabar-red lacquer cabinet. Books and games are stashed on shelves for you to enjoy and peruse.

SETTING: Nestled in the woods on the edge of Woodstock, you are less than 10 minutes from the center of the town of Woodstock. But you are also just about twelve minutes away from Saugerties for great antiquing and HITS! And if you have Mall withdrawal, a fifteen-minute drive will take you to Kingston for suburban shopping, or a quaint visit to the Stockade Area where the original capital of New York State was actually placed!

THINGS TO DO: Woodstock, the original Colony of the Arts, is on the threshold of the 700,000-acre Catskill State Park, where a farming community settled by the Dutch in the 17th century found a way to accommodate all those crazy artists that arrived in the early 20th century. The beauty of the Catskill Mountains inspired the Byrdcliffe Art Colony, became the summer home of the New York Art Students League, and gave rise to the Maverick Concert Hall. There is more to do here than you can imagine!

There are great restaurants and cafes boasting international cuisine as well as American, boutiques, antique stores, health-food stores, an art store, a movie house, two book stores, an exceptional shoe store, and the best hardware store in the world. And, of course, you can visit Byrdcliffe and The Woodstock Artists Association and Museum, or you can hear great chamber music in the woods at Maverick.

Nearby you will find golf, horseback riding, hiking, fishing, tennis, river walks and even river dips, bike rentals, sledding and snow-shoeing. Check out galleries, the week-end flea market, mid-week farmer's market. And as you'd expect in Woodstock -- there’s a wide selection of yoga, massage, Pilates, Reiki, and Qigong, not to mention spa services. If esoterica is what you are after, psychic, tarot and astrological readings are of course always on offer! For fun, join the Sunday afternoon open drumming sessions on 'the village green' right in the center of town. You'll also find places of worship of many denominations: Catholic; Jewish; Christian; Hindu; Buddhist—Zen and Tibetan, plus several different spiritual retreat centers.

We invite you to come see for yourself and greatly look forward to welcoming you!

PERFECT FAMILY-FRIENDLY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 4 adults and 3 kids, looking to relax and enjoy and this house did not disappoint at all. Robyn made sure we had all the info in advance and was very prompt in answering all our queries. The house was welcoming and fabulously decorated. The kids loved the spacious back yard and it was delightful to cook our meals on the outdoor grill and enjoy them in the gazebo. The decor is tasteful and the bedrooms were comfortable. It was perfect in every sense. We would love to come back.

The six of us really enjoyed this house. Robyn was very flexible and easy to work with, answering all our questions before we arrived and heating the house for our arrival. Nice touches, like the fact that bathrooms were stocked with toiletries. Kitchen is great for cooking large meals. Bedding is super comfy. Got to see shooting stars every night from the backyard. Accesible to Woodstock and local hiking. Overall, I highly recommend!

PEACEFUL WOODLAND RETREAT- ESCAPE THE CITY!

  • 5 of 5
We recently celebrated my mother's 60th birthday here -- 7 adults in total -- and we had a weekend we'll never forget! The road and property where this house is located is beautifully wooded and charming - we saw so many deer! All you can hear is nature. Each morning, whomever got up first would put the coffee on, and get the bacon sizzling. As soon as we'd trod downstairs, we'd all grab our mugs, and watch the deer out the window who would stop by for breakfast in the yard. We felt like we were in a movie! The four bedrooms inside suited us well (the master is quite spacious), and it was nice to have 3 full bathrooms in the house, though the shower downstairs is a bit small. The house is cozily appointed, and very comfortable! The wood-burning stove in the kitchen was our favorite (though it seems not to fully close/latch properly) as it would fill the house with the most glorious scent. We actually canceled all of our dinners out (next time!) in favor of cooking in the spacious kitchen, and using the nice grill outside -- we enjoyed being there so much! My boyfriend enjoyed watching the baseball games that were on each night in the comfy den with cable tv, while my parents enjoyed walking around the pond, and pointing out the fish and frogs each morning. It was really easy for us to get online using the wi-fi in the house too. The helpful guidebook our host left for us mentioned there was an Oktoberfest taking place that weekend at Hunter Mountain, so we decided to go -- and it was FANTASTIC! Free admission, delicious food, sweeping views of the Catskills on the chairlift ride, fun competitions, and a glorious upstate day. We were in heaven. On Sunday, us kids went hiking on the (easy, but rewarding) Overlook Mountain trail and my parents explored Woodstock and nearby attractions. My mom cried when we left, sad that our idyllic weekend in the woods had come to an end, and hoped that we could all return together soon. The owner was ready to help anytime we needed her and the whole process was so easy and wonderful. I'd do this again in a heartbeat.

WONDERFUL!

Fantastic weekend in Woodstock. House is secluded and quiet yet still within an easy drive to both Woodstock and Kingston, where we ate really well. The place is very tastefully decorated and you feel immediately at home. Beds are super comfortable and we slept great. Highly recommended.

WONDERFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a month in this beautiful and immaculate house. Items were thoughtfully placed and fully provided for. There were 6 of us – 2 kids, parents and grandparents – and a lot of room in the house. We took many day trips – to the Hudson Skyway, FDR home, Montgomery Place, swimming holes in Woodstock and Kingston. A fun and relaxing time! The Maclay Family

A PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough nice things abou the house, it's location and the nicest house manager we've yet to meet. Jude is a wonderful person and welcomed us to her home with lovely cheeses and groceries that were just what we needed when we arrived. The house sits on a beautiful piece of property where our two boys were able to run and play. Although we had a rainy weekend we still had a wonderful family vacation. There is plenty of room for families with two sitting areas and a lovely fireplace for the cold nights. We were a quick 10 minute ride into the town of Woodstock where there are great restaurants and a wonderful vibe around town - even on a rainy day. We will definitely be back!!! The Ky e Family

Located in the Hudson Valley, our house is 100 miles north of Manhattan via the NY Thruway. Amtrak trains to Rhinecliff across the river are easy access from NYC. Trailways buses from the City stop in the center of the village. You’ll find we are both away from it all, and in the center of a lot! Lots of to see, lots of outdoor sport and action, music, arts and culture.

'Woodstock' -- legendary symbol of the Sixties, headlined Hendrix, The Who, The Band, Grateful Dead and it's still known for great live music -- chamber to classical to folk to jazz to classic rock to world music. While you're here, check out Radio Woodstock WDST 100.1fm -- it's good!

Always lots to do! Boutique & antique shopping; wine & distillery tours; scenic train-rides; fruit-picking & farm stores; farm-animal sanctuaries; outdoor Shakespeare theater; fiddle & dance camps; educational environmental camps; river tubing and kayaking; psychic & tarot readings! Film Festival in the Fall, Writers Workshops in Spring. In winter -- ski, snowboard, moguls, cross-country, nursery, downhill and racing, 25 minutes away. For art lovers, let the inspiration for the Hudson River School painters be yours too! Set up an easel outdoors or sign in to Woodstock Art School and visit many excellent museums and galleries. The Zen Mountain Monastery is not far, and ‘KTD’ the Karma Triyana Dharmachakra Tibetan Buddhist Monastery up the hill from the center of Woodstock. Both are open to visitors and have monastery stores.

The neighboring village of Saugerties -- 8 miles away -- is 'home to the richest weekend in show jumping'. May to September top US horse shows take place here, courtesy of HITS (Horse Shows in the Sun). Having access to spectacular international show-jumping and dressage competitions right on our doorstep is a must for horse-lovers. Children under 12 are free, as is parking.

History buff? This region helped shape this country! In 1609 Henry Hudson sailed this way instead of the Northwest Passage. Close by Kingston, New York’s old capital, was burned by the British in 1777! And down river Fortress West Point began in 1778.

Over the Kingston/Rhinecliff Bridge takes you to historic Rhinebeck’s fairs -- antiques, crafts, food & wine, sheep & wool, old cars, and the jam-packed County Show. Bard College's Frank Gehry Fisher Center is home to the American Philharmonic. Rt 9 takes you south to Hyde Park, FDR Museum, Eleanor Roosevelt's Val-Kill, the Vanderbilt Mansion and the CIA --Culinary Institute of America so stop by for a quick cafe break, or book a table at one of their classy restaurants. If contemporary art and sculpture is your thing, don't miss DIA Beacon and Storm King.

There’s so much more not listed here, but one last thought. When on your travels, keep an eye out for the awesome Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. She's “America’s Environmental Flagship” -- as conceived by the one and only Pete Seeger -- and if you're lucky you may spot her under full sail gracing the spirit of the river and this very special corner of the world. We look forward to seeing you here!
