I stayed here with my two kids, wife and in-laws. Everyone had enough space to spread out. The place is very welcoming and feels like a home away from home. The lighting was perfect. Outdoor lights and indoor lights are on a timer, so you never walk into a dark home. The place is setup very well for traveling with a family. Our kids had fun playing in the basement. I will most definitely stay here again when visiting Monticello.
I wanted to give a 5 star rating for this lovely home, however I felt I couldn't because the sofa bed was broken so my daughter and son in law had to sleep on an air mattress, since my daughter has back problems this was a hardship for her. Once that sofa bed is replaced the house will be perfect. It is a lovely house on a beautiful spot. The house was very clean and stocked with all you need. Kevin was very attentive to our needs, he was very easy to reach with any questions I had. My family had a very nice time while enjoying the house and it's surroundings.
The house is very comfortable and stocked for summer activities, rain or shine. That includes just sitting and enjoying the view, eating outside or in or kayaking and fishing at the lake. We swam in the nearby state park and enjoyed visiting the Bethel Museum, too. Just right.
The house location and amenities were fantastic. We hope to be able to return soon.
The folks at Smallwoods were neighborly and friendly.
The game room was fun when it rained and taking the kayaks out was the highlight of our stay.
I have said more than once, "I want to go back to the Lake House!" What a wonderful tine we had! We totally lucked out with the weather and were able to enjoy walks around the lake and kayaking. The house is extremely well appointed. Not only that, it is cozy and inviting. The one thing that would be helpful is putting labels on the light switches to indicate which light they control. :)
Sitting on the deck was peaceful and serene. It was great to be able to get away to a peaceful spot that was less than 3hrs away! Kevin was extremely prompt and helpful with any questions concerning the house and attractions/restaurants and events going on in the area for the time we were there.
I look forward to my next time!
House was extremely clean and well equipped with everything we needed. Beautiful view of the lake we got lucky and were able to enjoy some time walking around it. Kevin was very easy to get in contact with and answered all my questions very promptly. Would defiantly return here for another trip.
The Town of Bethel was brought to the world's attention in 1969 when nearly 500,000 people gathered at Max Yasgur's Farm for 'Three Days of Peace and Music'. The Woodstock festival was held here in Bethel, 5 miles from our lake house, not in the Town of Woodstock.
In 2006, Bethel Woods opened on the original Woodstock site as a state-of-the-art performing arts venue. In early 2008, a multi-media Woodstock 'interpretive' museum opened near the old Yasgur's Farm to complement the concert space, which has hosted the New York Philharmonic, Wynton Marsalis, Diane Reeves, Chris Botti, the Goo Goo Dolls, the Boston Pops Orchestra, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd/Marshall Tucker Band, Bob Dylan, Richie Havens/Arlo Guthrie, Earth, Wind & Fire, the Boston Pops Orchestra, Steely Dan, the Allman Brothers, the Jonas Brothers, Heart, Journey, Cheap Trick and Brad Paisley to name a few. The continue to add top artists each summer / fall seasons. Lawn chair rentals make it affordable for all.
If you can not make the concerts it is still a great place to visit and tour the Woodstock Museum. This museum is quite the unexpected treat. Original artifacts, music, history, movie clips and much more. Group tours given on Saturdays. Easy 1 to 2 hour tour. See the actual festival site, hills and ponds.
