Come explore a true country experience at our 19th century farm cottage. Located on a country road with Overlook Mountain as its backdrop, the cottage is part of our 100 acre tree farm, perfect for the artist or writer who wants to get away from it all yet a short drive to Woodstock or Saugerties. Out the front door of the cottage and across a small open field, enter the woods and follow trails that run throughout the property on which you can walk, mountain bike, and in winter snowshoe and cross country ski, as snow cover permits. You will find the newly renovated cottage to have full amenities, even as it retains its quaint country charm. Located between Woodstock (4 miles) and Saugerties (5 miles) the cottage is ideally situated to take advantage of the many activities the area provides. The cottage location just 5 miles from exit 20 at mile 101 on the New York State Thruway ensures easy access year-round.
Enter the four room cottage through a 28 foot long screen porch. A table on the porch allows for outdoor dining while porch furniture provides comfortable seating. The kitchen and living room both have oak floors and exposed wood ceilings. The beams in the living room show marks of the hand hewing that produced them more than a century ago, while an old hearth in the kitchen and low ceilings throughout evoke a warmer and simpler time. The kitchen is newly equipped with a gas range and oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, and ample cooking and dining supplies. A center butcher block island provides plentiful space for food preparation and gathering round. A dining table comfortably seats four. Also downstairs off the kitchen is a bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower.
A stairway off a landing between the living room and kitchen leads upstairs to two bedrooms, both with queen size beds with memory foam mattresses. The bedrooms are separated by a hallway and a half bath. Carpeting throughout the upstairs makes it especially cozy and welcoming.
The cottage is suitable for children. Our granddaughter lives across the road from the cottage and is available for child sitting, as schedules permit. A Pack ’n Play, Crib/toddler bed and high chair are available upon request.
We came to the area in the late 60”s (yes we were at the original Woodstock Festival), raised our children here and still love waking up every morning to the sounds of birds chirping, the sight of wildlife, snow falling across the fields and all the beauty that nature provides. Jeffrey retired from business is an avid hiker and can help you locate just the right hiking trail for your abilities and interests. Colleen not ready to retire enjoys her job teaching Anthropology, Women's Studies and Latin American Studies. Both Colleen and Jeffrey are experienced skiers and former ski instructors with the inside track on the areas ski facilities.
We lived in Woodstock for ten years before purchasing this property. The minute we saw it we knew it was one of a kind. Come visit the Cottage at Pine Grove Farm and you will know immediately why we moved here and have stayed for over thirty years!
Take advantage of our hundred acres with its trails and wildlife while enjoying the privacy of your own woods and open field. The colors of the fall foliage are other-worldly, the spring peepers will lull you to sleep, summer evenings seem to go on forever, winter is cozy with lots of outdoor activities. All year around, the night sky is simply spectacular.
