CHARMING WOODSTOCK CONTEMPO IN A DOG FRIENDLY, STATE PARK WONDERLAND

Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom house; sleeps 4; 1 bathroom; dog friendly

Charming, hand-made 1600 sq ft contemporary home on quiet country road adjacent to hundreds of acres of Catskill State Park land. Nestled on 4 private acres with gardens and mountain views. Passive solar house with soaring Cathedral windows. Hiking trails and waterfalls abound in the hundreds of adjacent acres of state land. Bubbling creek just beyond the trees behind the house. Spacious outdoor deck with antique iron furniture; screened in porch with dining for 6; large country table seats 12 in dining room; wood stove; hardwood floors. . Weber grill, yard, large lawn and woods. Nicely furnished, high-speed internet, all appliances and amenities. There is also an upright piano. Perfect all year round: fall foliage, ski season and summer vacation. Convenient to three SKI resorts, Woodstock Film Festival and HITS. Close to all the major hiking areas: Overlook Mountain, Platte Clove wilderness, Kaaterskill Falls, etc.

SURROUNDED BY NATURE!: The house has large hand-made windows that allow a view of the natural surroundings from every room. We have seen deer, hawks, owls, eagles, rabbits, wild turkeys and more from our windows. Besides having extensive trails behind the house on state land, we are 10 minutes from world class hiking in the area. Overlook and Guardian mountains, Kaaterskill Falls, Platte Clove wilderness, Esopus tubing, Wilson State Park, etc.

DOG FRIENDLY!: The house and the town are dog friendly. Woodstock is the dog-friendliest town we have seen. Dogs are even allowed in the library! There are many trails in town that you can walk the dog off-leash: Comeau Property in the middle of woodstock, which has a long trail adjacent to the Sawkill Creek. There's also Big Deep and Little Deep which are 5 minutes from the house. Big Deep is a swimming hole in the middle of the woods. Little Deep is a trail also adjacent to the Sawkill Creek. There's a dam with a beautiful waterfall as well. This is also a good place to walk dogs off leash.

LOTS TO DO!: Besides hiking the glorious trails, there's biking terrific country roads. We also have lots of art galleries, music festivals and clubs, and great restaurants. For rock 'n roll fans there's the Bearsville Theater; for classical buffs there's Maverick Concerts; and there's other kind of music as well in the small clubs and bars. There's the Woodstock Film Festival, the Guitar Festival, Poetry Festival and more. There's the Walkway over the Hudson and tubing the Esopus. There's fishing and biking at the Ashokan reservoir. There's historic places to visit: Byrdcliffe, Woodstock Historical Society, Saugerties Lighthouse, Kingston Rondout.

In the winter, there is skiing at 3 ski resorts: Hunter, Wyndham and Belleayre. We are 40 minutes away from each of them.

PREFECT LOCATION, BEAUTIFUL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
When we walked in to this beautiful light filled loft like house we were blown away by how much nicer it looked compared to the photos on line. Owner obviously has spent years collecting nice furnishings for this house. Location was private, but not isolated, only a 10 minute drive to Woodstock. Everything was prepared for us for instant use, for example the grill had charcoal, the fireplace was ready to be lit and a lovely olive oil soap on the bathroom sink.
The property was extremely clean and well cared for inside and out.
The owner was very accommodating was easy to communicate with.
It was important for us to be able to bring our dog with us, Megan had a blast running through the leaves and rolling in the yard and she spent many hours on the deck watching the squirrels.
I highly recommend this property.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS GEM OF A PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a long weekend and couldn’t praise the experience enough. It’s evident that the owners take great pride in this gem. It’s beautifully maintained/kept very pristine for guests. It’s like a calming oasis amongst the forest but just off a convenient main road to town.

A lot of light and open communal space creates a wonderfully comfortable atmosphere around both the house and the outdoor deck area. We had our dog with us whom we kept on a long lead around the grounds, she loved it. She's generally low-key which worked well here because the place is so nicely kept/managed. The actual town of Woodstock is only about a 5 minute drive away and the local hikes are outstanding. Highly recommend this property!

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
We really loved this house and property. The house is very stylish and has everything you could possibley want in a vacation house. There are so many movies, cds, books, games, a piano .... don't bring anything along for entertainment you won't need it! The house was cozy and warm and felt very 'homey'.

The outside of the house is so lovely, nice decks, a great big lawn and hiking trails just behind the house.

The owners provided us with a wonderful list of hiking and restaurant options. We really enjoyed the Overlook Hike and the Red Onion for dinner!

Oh and our dog had a fantastic time also.

AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
My wife, baby, dog, and I very much enjoyed our stay. The house is very unique, built and furnished/decorated with good taste and extreme care, using high quality, often reclaimed, materials. The house is set sufficiently far back from the road for privacy. You can bearly catch a glimpse of neiboring structures through the woods. There are cabins on the property but they apppered not to be in use. The deck is very nice, as is the beautifull sunroom/dining room. Everything in the house has charachter.

The main bedroom is a loft, so the house is great for a couple or a family. Sound travels very easily from the loft to the living room/kitchen. The few from upstairs is very beautifl and it's a pleasure to wake up in the loft looking at nature from the many windows. The second bedroom is very cozy, and if somebody goes to sleep earlier than the rest or plans to sleep in late they would need to stay in the downstairs bedroom that has a door. The beds are of good quality but very firm. I found them extremely comforable, my wife would prefer softer ones. There's a very nice looking "porch" area (no glass but mosquito netting) but with the light on, the bugs do get through at night in very large numbers, so we did not use it very much.

We were able to use the internet and watch a few DVDs on a small flat panel TV. We also used the stereo/radio. The house is stocked with CDs and board games as well. We had regular but poor cell phone reception at the house. The house phone is for local calls only (but ok for receiving calls)

Woodstock is about 10 minutes drive away and offers multiple good dining options as well as a supermarket in the vicinity. We went to a number of very tasty restaurants, on days we did not grill at home. We also visited Phoenicia... we were not impressed by that town.

There are some swimming holes nearby (5-10m drive). There's also a hike to a waterfall about 5-10 minutes drive away. We could not find a lake or pond for swimming in the vicinity... but I know there are some within a half hour drive.


The owners were a pleasure to deal with and responsive. The house was very clean when we arrived.

THE IDYLLIC RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
My husband, dog, & I spent a wonderful Columbus weekend at this cozy cabin. It’s located slightly out of town and off a main road enough to spoil you with brilliant views of the mountains, supply plenty of woods to walk through but is still conveniently located for a quick drive into Woodstock. The Cabin itself was beautifully built so that it exuded the eccentric Woodstock flare as well a provided the warm, cozy, and charming feel so typical with rustic cabins. That’s what I particularly loved. With plenty of books and board games we spent a lot of quality time and didn't miss not having a TV. It was so nice to warm up by the woodstove or to chill out on the back porch while the dog roamed. This cabin was appealing to both me and my husband. He loved the wood burning stove, the stone and wood walls, and especially the 4 acres for us to wander while giving our dog some much needed room to run like a lunatic. Overall the owner was a pleasure to deal with, and the character, cleanliness, size, and location of this cabin made our stay the perfect getaway.We highly recommend this as an idyllic retreat for couples and small group. We hope others will enjoy it as much as we did. We look forward to our next stay and this time we are bringing friends.

Also, we expect people to pick up after their dogs if the dogs go on the lawn or garden area. Woods are fine for the dogs to go in. Dogs must be leashed as there are neighborhood dogs. Children are welcome but the house is not baby friendly per se, as there isn't a high chair or baby bumpers on the tables. Toddlers and older children are fine.
