CATSKILLS, HITS, WOODSTOCK, SAUGERTIES, SECLUDED YET CLOSE TO ALL

Woodstock Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

One Of A Kind! 4 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths, Radiant Heat, Endless Views

As you leave the oh so hip village of Woodstock and you start up the side of Overlook Mountain, you're on your way to a rare treat. Hanging on the side of this mountain, drenched in the sun, is one very incredible dwell style home that you'll be lucky to call home. The mountain side road is a bit of a challenge but once you arrive Wow is all you'll be able to utter. This place is one of a kind and the owner has spared no expense building this beauty. This home was built with a nice southern exposure so that all the rooms face a breath taking view of Ulster County and far, far beyond the Ashokan Reservoir and the Hudson River. The entry way to this beauty is high lighted with an exterior stairway and bridge over the driveway. This gives you the first taste of that oh so awesome view and brings you into a two story atrium space. Ascend that stairway and you'll arrive in a large glass great-room that will make you feel like you're on top of the world. This design is known as a Neo-Modern style and was designed by a well known local architect named Les Walker. The materials used here are varied and soothing. On the lower level you'll find a comfy TV room with granite floors, fireplace, big 3-D flat screen TV, Playstation 3 that will play 3D, Blue Ray movies. The Bose system will also play movies, DVDs and all with surround sound and Sirius stations. There's a half bath on this floor and a nice fourth bedroom. Head on upstairs and check out those Cherry hard wood floors and the chefs kitchen with gorgeous Ceaserstone counters, breakfast nook and stainless appliances. Next to it is a nice laundry room. The living room is wide open and has it's own fire place. From there you can walk out onto the big deck and try out that 6 person hot tub!! Also on this floor is a childs bedroom with two race car beds and a guest bedroom with a queen sized bed. You'll also find a killer bath room with gorgeous marble tile work and a huge sky lite. The stair case in the great room takes you to the master suite on the next level. There you'll find a king sized bed and the best view around. The master bath is to drool for. Huge glass shower with steam and a big jetted soaking tub. The owner has built a beauty here. Check out the custom Maple cabinets built in throughout the home. Slip off your shoes and experience the radiant heated floors. Nothing has been over looked here. Even the grill on the deck is tied into the propane tank. If you ever leave the mountain side to explore Mohonk or Minnewaska or to hike some of the famous Catskill Mountain trails or to carve some trails on the local ski slopes, you'll know something incredible is waiting for your return home.

About Bruce Stalnaker

We lead very busy lives in the city and always try to escape when possible. We fell in love with this area and decided to build a weekend home here. This place is incredible and has really given us the ultimate escape. We can't use it every weekend and are willing to share it with those that really appreciate what we've created here.

Bruce Stalnaker purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

Why Bruce Stalnaker chose Woodstock

We wanted an awesome view year round and to be close to I-87 and Woodstock. We selected this 4 plus acre mtn side lot and carefully built into the side of the mtn.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We get such incredible light here and that view changes with the clouds. All four seasons are special here. Night time is dark up here for maximum star gazing. The hot tub is inviting in any season. You won't want to leave.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5
Very impressed with my weekend here. The views are expansive and my group joked that we were looking down on Middle Earth. Deck, hottub, and grill are the true gems of the place. In-home surround sound system really enhanced the experience. Deceivingly close to downtown Woodstock yet a world-away.

Bruce was great to work with: friendly, very accessible, and easily facilitated the whole process. Will not disappoint!

Perfect getaway house with amazing view

  • 5 of 5
As nice as the house looks on the internet, they dont do them justice. The place is nesteld up on the side of the mountain, so you can see for miles. Big windows in the main room give you this view from inside as well. The hottub is a huge plus, out in front of the house so it overlooks those same views. The open floor plan makes the main room seem like it stretches forever. The downstairs has some of the most confortable recliners ive sat in, and watching march madness in there was a treat. Bedrooms/bathrooms are all really nice, and the sound system plays music throughout the house. Bruce the property manager was very responsive and a pleasure to deal with, he even left us some wine when we showed up. Hes a good communicator and made it all easy from booking to getting the deposit back. Would definitely go back.

this house is spectacular. the photos dont nearly do it justice. i'm almost hesitant to leave a positive review because i dont want the house to be booked when i return but this house is too amazing to not share with others. its huge. we barely used a fraction of it but everything is new and clean and it has all the ammenities you can ask for. the view from the hot tub is breathtaking, the fire pit is perfect for late nights, the master bathroom has a large bathtub and a beautiful shower and there's a nice sound system built into all the rooms in the house. its secluded yet a short 10 minute drive to town. i didnt want to leave but i will for sure return again.

My fav after two years of HomeAway and Woodstock

  • 5 of 5
As we were the first renters of this property, we got to know the owner a bit during our time there. He built this house from the ground up, a labor of love, and it is truly an amazing mountain top gem.

It's a HUGE space, and took me some time to realize it was "only" a three bedroom, because of how much space there is.

There is a fire pit, a jacuzzi, a deck with sweeping views of the valley, a playground on property, a bunch of toys (if you have kids, this matters), a super tv, awesome in-ceiling speaker controllable from a single location to blast if need be... and all from a 10 minute drive to town.

Both Bruce (the manager) and Michael (the owner) were exceptionally helpful and supportive, making sure our stay there was solid and super

Highly recommended!

This area is full of things to do. You're in the famous Catskill Mountains here. There are miles of trails to hike and several mountains to ski. We've got incredible parks to explore like Mohonk and Minnewaska with countless miles of old carriage roads to bike and pristine lakes to swim. Local hikes to places like the Overlook Fire Tower will test your metal but reward you with views to droll over. Eclectic local villages like Woodstock, Saugerties and Phoenicia are great to explore. Kingston has one of everything as far as stores go. Fine restaurants can be found in all of them. Time will slip by you here and this house is just soooo amazing you won't want to leave!! Sit out on the deck or in that huge hot tub and just drink in the view and serenity.
