FAIRYTALE COUNTRY HOUSE ON 40 ACRES – PERFECT HAVEN FOR HUMAN & CANINE

Woodstock Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Three-story stone house; 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths; 1 Mile from Village

I welcome you to stay in this river stone country house set on 40 private acres of woodlands, streams, and old blue stone quarries.

In less than five minutes, you can enter the Woodstock experience – boutiques, live music, cafes, bookstores, fine dining, retro & antique shops, and art galleries ... or be swimming in Big Deep, basking in the sun at Woodstock’s natural swimming hole. In less than 45 minutes, you can be skiing down some of New York's finest skiing mountains.

This three-story Arts & Crafts home easily accommodates eight adults. Four bedrooms, each with its own individual flare, allow for privacy and romance. One with a private library and writing desk; one with a screened porch; one with grand, arched ceilings; and one with a cozy, dreamy treehouse view of the private forest. Cotton bedding, down comforters, and superior pillows create a perfect ending to any day.

A newly renovated Italian and Mexican tiled bathroom fulfills the needs of those who prefer showers, while a bathroom with a claw foot tub provides a tranquil retreat amongst the treetops of maples, pines, and oaks of the woodlands.

A state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen filled with all the modern accoutrements blends old world with new: marble and butcher block countertops, stainless steel appliances, and place settings for twelve. A dining room, complete with wine, beer, champagne and martini glasses, serving ware, and cloth napkins welcomes all to a long, Arts & Crafts table placed under original, open wood beams.

With a stone fireplace, library, and separate eating area, the large living room draws you into its warmth and hominess. Large windows overlook a landscaped, fenced-in yard – a perfect romp for dogs and children – and a backyard view of a new orchard and traditional bluestone patio.

The walls are decorated with original art and reproductions reminiscent of those artists whose lives were shaped here – water, woodlands, boats, and still-lifes.

Grill steaks, chicken, brats, or veggies on the charcoal and gas grills and serve the succulent food al fresco on a blue stone slab table under towering pines. Roast marshmallows on the fire pit. Sneak a bit of mountain sun on our chaise lounges. Play a round of croquet or volleyball in the green lawns. Build snowmen in the yard. Make snow angels under a velvet mountain sky. Snowshoe through our forest preserve.

For those who must be tied, even on vacation, to the office, there is high-speed internet, a printer, WiFi, and unlimited local and long distance phone calls (U.S. and Canada). High-def television, with TiVo, premium channels, and Netflix.

I am the proud human of two dogs that love to travel with me and I welcome you to bring your well-trained canine family members too! A 2.5-acre fenced in area around the house provides Fido and Trudy ample room to run, sniff, chase squirrels, and lounge in the sun and snow!

I look forward to your stay … and think you’ll want to come back. Time and time again!

As a writer, I left Woodstock for a few years to do research in Florida. With research behind me, I now split my time between rustic, romantic Woodstock and New York City--the best of both worlds. My two dogs travel with me - and I have been blessed with opportunities to stay at homes that allow pets. I offer the same kindness to those with four-footed family members of the canine persuasion -- with 2.5 acres of a fenced in yard, they will love the home as much as you!

2091 Glasco Turnpike is an historic river stone home, designed and built in the early 1900s by a woman whose name has unfortunately disappeared from the records. She modeled it after the Arts & Crafts homes of England. It has been in our family for three generations, each leaving an indelible mark on its landscape, walls, décor, and furnishings.

The house has nourished many an artist in its day—including the famous illustrator and painter, Anton Otto Fischer (our uncle) and his wife May Fisher, illustrator and suffragette.

Whether you or someone in your party is artistically inclined, I hope that the same muse will envelop you. Be it through writing, painting, playing music, cooking a fabulous meal, or discovering the natural landscape with a new set of eyes.

The most charming, magical weekend away!

  • 5 of 5
I don't really know where to start, because our stay at Lisa's house was so wonderful and perfect in every way! When my sister and I first arrived we couldn't stop gushing over how beautiful and charming everything was, from the gardens, the lawns, to every room in the house. We had a bunch of girls come to celebrate my sister getting married, and there was enough of everything at the house. Lisa has plenty of fresh, clean towels/linens, and the kitchen was fully stocked. Lisa also has everything very organized and explained, which made our stay more relaxing. She also has a great notebook with local restaurants and other information about Woodstock, which was such a great help; yet, if we had any additional questions, she quickly responded to our text messages. We all had such an amazing time at this charming house; I wish we could spend every weekend there!

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5
This house was exactly what we were looking for when planning our getaway from the city with a group of eight (and two dogs) in March. The pictures make the house look lovely, and it's even more lovely in person. And the owners/caretakers really do everything they can to make the guests feel comfortable. We had cars, but ended up walking into town (Woodstock) because it's a pleasant walk. I would highly recommend this place.

Lovely, lovely stay

  • 5 of 5
What a charming house! Its a little like walking into a fairy tale. The pictures are nice but really don't do the place justice. Everywhere you look is something else to delight your eye: little sitting areas, dear wandering by in the afternoon, a riot of all kinds of birds, the 2nd floor screened in porch. The owners are very thoughtful about making you feel at home but pampered by their choices of linens and toiletries, etc. They are also responsive to any needs that may come up. The house is situated very conveniently to everything. My complaint: how the heck is it possible for time to speed up while you are there relaxing? The week totally flew by!! We're grateful that the owners welcome the rest of us to share their special house.

Old World Charm

  • 5 of 5
We really loved this house, it had an authentic old world charm but with enough modern updates to make it comfortable. The property is quiet, secluded and beautiful with lovely old pine trees. We saw and heard lots of different birds. We hiked some nearby mountains, climbed the fire tower on Overlook Mt., and the town is cute cute cute with lots of friendly people. I spent a rainy afternoon on the screened sleeping porch with a cup of tea and my book while the others went into Woodstock. Make sure you spend at least one evening around the game table in the living room playing a board game (there's some already there to use). Fun times, there's peacefulness and good energy there... Only wish we could have stayed longer. Maybe next year!

Notes:
The home has nurtured painters and writers throughout its hundred-year history, and within a quarter-mile, many more have worked. It is a perfect place to find solace from the daily grind of modern life. Decorated with original artwork, soft, fuzzy throws, fluffy pillows, and a mixture of modern and antique furnishings this is a perfect place to unwind, take in the beautiful landscape, and spend quality time with friends and family. Take a bath in the antique claw foot tub on the third floor and feel like you are bathing in the treetops. Enjoy the original Arts & Crafts architecture: wood beams, stone fireplaces, window seats. Escape to the third floor office, plop down on the futon or desk and write in the pine treetops. Bring your easel and paint on the grounds or in one of the numerous rooms flooded with morning and midday light. Property manager lives on neighboring property; maintenance man available for emergencies. Daily cleaning services available at a per diem rate.
