______________________________________________

If you want to fall asleep to the stereo lullaby of frog croaks while watching the spectacle of fireflies competing with stars, this is the place.

Frederick Dana Marsh, father of the well known Social Realist painter Reginald Marsh, married Mabel Van Alstyne in 1930, starting a notable artistic partnership as the Van Alstyne Marsh Collection that was later acquired by the Smithsonian Institution. Their home was unique for Woodstock—'It was in the background of the Mona Lisa; a Van Gogh landscape; a train ride through Tuscany—ball shaped junipers;  a pond that bracketed the house;  expansive lawns; a gathering of birches.  But most of all, big cone shaped cedar trees.  It is a marvelous thing to look up at backlit clouds at sunset—see the intrusion of cedar peaks, pointing up like soft missles and the erratic flight of mosquito catcher bats making ninety degree turns down the channels between the trees.  A photographer friend was here last weekend and I told her, “Don’t worry about framing the picture, just point and shoot.  The landscaper framed it for you seventy years ago.” ' Here I quote Austin Metze, who knows this piece of land long before it put a spell on us.

To be there is to inhabit an idyllic painting. Start the day with breakfast under the hydrangea trees while goslings and blue heron comb the waters. Sit in the property's own Hidden Chair Waterfall or chill at the secluded sandy beach swim hole a one minute stroll away through enchanted woods, take a hike up Milk Mountain or up the trails of the neighboring nature preserve for a Sunday brunch in town and visit to the flea market. Or just hang in the birch hammock and read a good book under a cypress tree.

The house is a 1930' artist studio building with 16' ceiling height and tall artist studio windows. It is an eclectic place filled with history, but if you are looking for renovated perfection, this is not for you. There are 2 bedrooms, one overlooking the pond with floor to ceiling windows on three sides, with an additional toddler bed and a crib, as well as a guest bed. We provide linens, towels and other essentials.

The Pond House is on the same property as the Cottage House, see http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p960156. The grounds and pond surrounding the Pond House are reserved for the Pond House.

RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this property. Nin was incredibly gracious and very accomodating, even with our very last minute request to rent. The house has a real quirky charm to it, rustic yet charming and well stocked/supplied and clean. The grounds were beautiful. The house is situated just steps from the river. Plenty of flat rocks and whirl pools for our kids (ages 10 and 13) to scramble over and play in (must be AMAZING in the summer) - they loved it! We crossed the river a few times (need waterproof boots!) to take walks along the trails in the preserve on the other side. Also took hikes out and about Woodstock mountains. But mostly we stayed in, built fires in the lovely woodstove (we were here just this past week in Feb), played board games (bring your own) and cooked on the grill. It was perfectly relaxing. Thank you Nin!

ONE GREAT VACATION HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
When we went on vacation to this house we were amazed!
The house was so pretty, modern, and comfortable!
Kids will enjoy the backyard, pond, river, hammock (we couldn't use it because of the snow) and so on!
The owner family is super nice.
We hope we could come back next summer!
