I live in New York but grew up in Canada and Bermuda, two wildly different climates! When it comes to property I tend to prefer the extremes....extreme country, or extreme city, and that's one of the things I love about Woodstock. It's less than two hours from New York City, but it's a million miles away with respect to it's ambiance, culture and attitude. Woodstock is a fabulous combination of getting away from it all while still having plenty to do.

While the eastern side of the Hudson River valley tends toward rolling topography historically suitable for farmland, thanks to the Catskill mountain range, on our side we enjoy skiing, hiking, rock climbing and delicious mountain views.
The unique village of Woodstock retains the same quirkiness that attracted the likes of Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin and ultimately the infamous Woodstock music festival, garnering it the title of the 'most famous small town in America'. The pristine beauty of the surroundings inevitably grew an avid following from New York City, so a sophisticated but casual community has evolved. The Town of Woodstock proudly bears the title 'colony of the arts'. There are music concerts, theatre, art galleries, and film festivals along with farm festivals.
Each season is as spectacular as the next. The summer is lush and beautiful, and people of all ages enjoy frolicking in the areas many streams and swimming holes, which obviously also afford opportunities for those who enjoy fishing. There is a beautiful golf course golf in Woodstock (and many other local courses), a tennis center in Saugerties (15 minutes away), hiking and rock climbing, as a start.
The fall is absolutely spectacular, the foliage can be outrageous, the air cool and refreshing. When winter hits, there's downhill and cross country skiing, snow shoeing....or just relaxing in front of the fire and taking in the beautiful snowy views isn't too bad either. The fresh air and beautiful light that spring brings is absolutely invigorating.
The famous luxury brand (no really....Gucci, Dolce Gabana etc) outlets at Harriman are on the way from New York City, and just 45 minutes from the house.
If all the activities, shopping and dining activities aren't enough, there's many spas to choose from as well, ranging from world class to small and focused.
Whatever season, whatever your bend, whatever the age...there is something for everyone.
Salt Water Pool! No nasty chemicals. Available in season May to October. Heating fee apply.
Luxury spa hot tub can accommodate 6 adults, with lounger. Brand new in 2015.
I had never booked a rental online and choose to go upstate to celebrate my birthday with a few friends. We had the absolute best time at the Villa. The kitchen is top of the line, with any dish, utensil you could ever need. We loved making fires each night and the outdoor hotub was such a treat! Truly, this house was exactly as the pictures look, but even more cozy. We already are plotting our return to enjoy the pool this Summer!
This home was perfect in ever sense of the word. There are three spacious sized bedrooms with two separate living room quarters. The kitchen was my favorite part. It is large enough to cook a feast in and has a modern feel. The outside area is gorgeous as there is a massive deck leading into the pool area. The house is located at the top of the mountains in Woodstock so the views are breath taking. It is a quick five minute drive to down town Woodstock. The owners made themselves readily available and were easy to get a hold of. We look forward to our next escape to this villa!
This is a tastefully decorated, 3BR house nestled in the mountains of Woodstock. There is a huge deck on the lower-level which is perfect for eating, grilling, etc. There are also 3 other decks, one leading to the woods in the backyard, another facing the mountains on the upper level family room, and a small private deck in the master bedroom with the same front-facing view. There is also a salt water pool to the side of the home, neatly kept with nice furniture. Unfortuntaly, when we vistited we weren't able to use it due to the chilly weather. The home comfortably sleeps 8 (6 in the 3 BRs and 2 on sofabeds). Our favorite part of the home was the kitchen, which has a somewhat modern look and feel. Upon our arrival, the home was very clean and ready for us to use. The owners are very friendly and were a pleasure to deal with. We make annual trips up to Woodstock, typically in the late summer/fall season. The area is very laid back, has a great main street area with unique shops and restaurants (5-6 min drive away from the home). Our favorite part of Woodstock is the hike up Overlook mountain and the drive along the road splitting the Ashokan Reservoir. If you do hike Overlook mountain, once you pass the former hotel/abandoned structure and reach the top, there is a ranger office. Be sure to walk to the right of it and to the scenic overlook (about 1 minute beyond the office). By far the most gorgeous view I have ever seen.
We were a group of 8, including 3 toddlers, that enjoyed the serenity villa for a weekend in September. The house is well organized, clean, cosy and FUN. Woodstock and the surroundings make for a perfect getaway from the city. The house has everything you will need and can think of, including pool toys, a stashed pantry, towels etc etc. We had a blast with kids in the pool or walking around in the woods. The pool is great (heated) with a shallow and deep end suitable for both kids and adults. House, decks (BBQ) and pool area are all spacious, but smartly planned and well tied together. We can't wait to come back.
We so enjoyed our stay here. Beautiful, quiet, comfortable. The hosts were easy and made our stay very comfortable. The property was clean, well maintained. We had a great time. Will stay here again.
Our stay at Serenity Villa was fantastic. We loved the pool especially, which is very private and great for families. The kitchen is very well-appointed, great for making big dinners, and the rooms are big and comfortable. The surrounding area is also wonderful. The house lies up a winding mountain road from the town of Woodstock, which is really just down the hill and worth a couple visits. My old dog had trouble on the steep stairs leading to the second floor--I had to help him up and down each time he went--but a well-placed gate at the top of the stairs kept him, and my toddlers, from any danger of falling. A wonderful place, highly recommended.
This really is a year round destination. In the summer they are swimming holes and local lakes to explore, in the fall we have the most beautiful foliage and hikes, in the winter months we are located near to NY's best Ski Resorts, Hunter, Belleayre and Windham, and in the spring the area is so green and vibrant. Annual events include the Ulster and Dutchess County fairs; the HITS Horse show; the Woodstock Film Festival; Concerts at the Woodstock Bear Theatre; the Garlic Festival; wine tastings; shows at BARD.
