The Teahouse Cottage is on an estate that was the home of Woodstock artist Judson Smith, who used it for one of his studios in the 1940's and 1950's. Later, his daughters converted it to a guest cottage. The drops of paint on the floor from Smith's work more than half a century ago are preserved in the carefully restored and refinished hardwood floor.

The cottage overlooks a lovely trout stream and faces the river and a 75 acre park with 2 mile walking trail just on the other side of the river that goes upstream and loops back through the forest to the edge of the property. If the river is high, you can access the trail head by going into town, behind the outdoor Shakespeare stage next to the Woodstock town offices.
The Trailways bus from New York City stops in the village of Woodstock, a half mile from the cottage.
Originally built in the 1870's as a small barn on the estate. This 1870's vintage antique post and beam barn has been fully renovated, while preserving it's original charm - new bath, new kitchen, refinished antique hardwood floors, queen size pillow top mattress in the sleeping loft. The sleeping loft is accessed by a ladder. Recently we added an additional queen size Murphy bed that most guests seem to prefer.
Broadband internet and a TV with cable and a built in DVD player is included. ?The internet connection an ethernet cable by the desk. No password needed.

This is our 'dream property' which we found in 2002. We weren't looking for a home, but my wife Chloe happened to see the estate the first day it was on the market and called me from the property to come see it. We immediately put in a full price offer, only to be told later that there was another higher offer. We then raised our offer by $80,000. but they sold it to the other buyer anyway for $50K less than our offer. We called the buyer's lawyer and told him to tell the buyer we would pay his price if he were willing to sell. A few months later he called us and offered it for $115,000. more than he'd paid. We were ecstatic. With four post and beam barns circa 1870 three of which had been converted to residences in the 1940's by a local artist of some repute [Judson Smith], fruit trees, a trout stream running though, adjacent to a 77 acre park, and walking distance from the village of Woodstock, there is no other property in the world we can imagine more desirable to us. There was lots of work to do. Now with a decade of work and $250K in renovations, we have it ship shape.
The Teahouse Cottage is on an artist's estate walking distance to the center of Woodstock Village. It overlooks a trout stream and on the other side is a 77 acre park with miles of walking trails. In the Catskills there is hiking, fishing, swimming, skiing, antiquing, and many other activities. Woodstock has several excellent restaurants.
