WOODSTOCK DESIGN WATERFRONT HOUSE

This newly remodeled private waterfront cottage is just 3

minutes from the center of Saugerties, NY and 15 minutes

from Woodstock, NY. Enjoy the best of both towns: specialty

shops and boutiques, delectable food, farmers markets, live

music and glorious scenery.

The 2-bedroom, 1-bath cottage is a spacious, serene and

comfortably elegant retreat. It’s ingeniously tailored for a

romantic getaway, a family gathering, or for two friends

on a shopping-fishing-antiquing-hiking or whatever you-

cook-up weekend. It's roomy enough for a crowd, yet still

cozy and private enough for a revitalizing artist or writer’s

retreat.

No need to sacrifice urban elegance for country charm,

because here you truly have both. The house is an authentic

1930’s cottage, now airily restyled and open, with the

sophistication of a luxed-out loft. It was the beloved

childhood family cottage of former L.A. stylist Daisy Bolle,

current owner of Hudson Valley fashion mecca DIG, and

Daisy’s smashing taste is reflected in every detail of this

beautiful remodel. The house still belongs to her parents,

Mike and Robin Kramer, longtime owners of the two hottest

clothing stores in Woodstock: Woodstock Trading Post and

Woodstock Design. Luxury and cozy comfort are in this

family’s DNA.

Each room has been thoughtfully designed and decorated

to invite the outdoors in, surrounding you with resort-

style comfort. Enormous windows and French doors to the

stunning deck provide an all-day display of the renowned

ever-changing Hudson Valley light. Keep them open to savor

evening breezes and glowing sunsets, and then light a cozy

fire in the living room fireplace, which you can also see from

the bedroom.

This rare property includes direct access to the Esopus

Creek, famous for summer and winter sports. Take a dip

or launch a kayak from your private dock, onto the smooth

glide of the creek. Once there, let the world slip by as your

stress slides away. Take a photo safari up this Hudson Valley

Nile, capturing shots of nesting egrets, cranes and swans.

Nature provides a daily surprise in this sought-after

Hudson Valley setting, known for its mountains, woods,

and meandering rivers. Poets and painters will find enough

inspiration to last the rest of the year. You might even nab

a prime trophy bass. The gentle lapping of the creek will

serenade evening star–gazing and cocktails on the deck, or

a night of barbeque and games with the kids. Linger over

lattes and the morning papers while you plan the day’s

adventures. You may just decide relaxing on the deck is all

the adventure you need.

When it’s time for sleep, sink into sumptuous king-sized

beds in both bedrooms. One of the two couches in the

living room also folds out into a queen mattress. Linens

are provided for you, including silk-like soft Beechwood

sheets, down blankets and pillows, and fluffy bath sheet-

sized towels laundered with Seventh Generation unscented

detergent. The bath features radiant-heat floors, iridescent

artisan tiles, heated towel racks and a floating vanity.

The pantry is stocked with gourmet basics like organic

coffee, tea, honey and oatmeal, and the fridge holds choice

mustards, bbq sauce and other surprises. Whether you’re a

seasoned cook or just want to whip up some smoothies, the

kitchen — with its gleaming industrial chic appliances and

a five-burner gas stove with convection oven — will satisfy

your appetite for customized, supreme efficiency.

You’ll be cozily secluded, tucked onto a quiet lane in

Saugerties, recently named by Frommer’s as one of

America's 10 Coolest Small Towns. Saugerties — hilly and

rich with hidden treasures like upscale breakfast joints,

antique shops, places to enjoy micro brews or perfect

cappuccinos, is a funky blend of historic Catskill charm and

local artistic flair. For horse fans, HITS summer events are

fast becoming the talk of the town.

Woodstock is a scenic 12-minute drive, offering miles of

mountain trails, a Tibetan Buddhist monastery, day trips

for picnics, secluded swimming holes, hiking and biking, a

rich rock ‘n roll history and unique restaurants and shops,

including a huge weekend flea market.

Additional features include:

Full HD 120 Channel Cable Package with premium channels, including

HBO, Showtime, Starz, Cinemax, EPIX, On Demand, and Netflix!

Living Room has 40” Samsung smart TV with Netflix & whole-house DVR

DVD player.

Bedrooms both have flat screen TVs, full cable. DVR in master bedroom.

Whole-house DVR playback box in second bedroom 2.

Oh, and we’re POOCH-friendly!

cards accepted and welcome.

About Steve Kramer

4/21/14 BACK TO THE WATERFRONT

On August 6, 2001 I wrote a story of us buying our weekend house in Saugerties. All our friends thought we were crazy to buy a vacation house 15 minutes from our house in Woodstock.

It was in 1992 and Saugerties was still a town that was down on its luck. There were a lot of empty stores. Our house, only one mile from town,

seemed a million miles away with the deck cantilevered over the Esopus Creek.

In my story I told of happily buying antiques and chatckas from the stores in town for our house that had been built from a kit from Sears in the 30’s.

Fast forward to 2014. Daisy, our stylish daughter, who had spent 15 years in LA, came home with her husband Van and five month old daughter Starla. They stayed in our cottage while they established their boutique DIG in Saugerties. After a year they bought their own house on the creek.

This year Daisy and Van decided that our house needed an update. They wanted our house to be totally cool, down to the Jonathan Adler dishes that they sell in their store. With their taste and our credit card the house was totally transformed. There’s a smart TV that gets every channel plus Netflix, YouTube, Face Book and anything else you can think of.

There’s a new stylish kitchen and the bathroom is ultra-luxurious with its radiant heated floor and heated towel rack. The small windows in the master bedroom were replaced with French doors to the deck. A larger window was put in the second bedroom that allows a full view up the creek. The wood floors were sanded and a high gloss finish makes them glow.

continued below.....

Steve Kramer purchased this house in 1992

Why Steve Kramer chose Catskills

The final touch to remove any signs of the old place was painting the wood ceiling white.

Since we bought the house the land across the creek became the Esopus Creek Conservancy

Thanks to the marvels of the internet (which didn’t exist when we bought the house in 1992) we are able to rent it out by the week when we are not using it.

Brains or luck? We were thinking of buying in Phoencia, which probably would have gotten washed away during Irene. Saugerties has become one of the ten coolest towns in the U.S.

I think it was destiny.

We loved the water for kayaking, swimming and hearing the water as we doze off to sleep. We always loved sitting on the deck or kayaking watching the changing fall foliage

What makes this house unique

Huge private dock that is right on the water (perfect for swimming or kayaking)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for letting us stay in your home. It was really so perfect. Lots of great touch and style. We can't wait to come back some day..

Peaceful escape on the creek

  • 5 of 5

EVERYTHING was perfect from start to finish. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed during our stay. The living room and bedroom has doors to the deck overlooking the creek. This was so peaceful to be that close to the water. We truly enjoyed just sitting on the deck with our morning coffee and soaking in the beauty. The house is up-to-date and well maintained. It is very close to main street in Saugerties where there are local shops and eateries. We cannot wait to go back.

Beautiful waterside retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time - the house is perfect for 4 people. Wonderful dock on the water and great heater fireplace, and owner is very nice and responsive. Clean and nice design esthetic, and super comfy beds. Saugerties is adorable with cute stores, great bars, coffee shops and restaurants, and hiking trails nearby. So sweet to leave breakfast staples in the fridge. Would definitely revisit!

Lovely experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay at Steve's home. The house is very comfortable and it's lovely how the hosts stock it with eggs and local toasts. Steve was very responsive to any questions or issues we had. Very nearby to great hiking and Woodstock, not to mention the river in the backyard! Thanks so much for being so accommodating Steve!

Hidden Gem on Esopus Creek

  • 5 of 5

This little house is in a magical location - it is 5 minutes from the center of Saugerties, but feels far away from everything - it is down a little dead end road and right on the Esopus Creek. The house has been beautifully renovated inside, with excellent modern appliances, comfortable king size beds, heated floors and even a heated towel rack in the bathroom! Light pours in from the large windows on the creek side, and the deck overlooking the creek is amazing. We visited for the weekend after Thanksgiving (me, my husband and our small dog), so it was too cold to kayak, but we want to come back in warmer weather! The town of Saugerties has several interesting, excellent restaurants - Miss Lucy's and Love Bites were our favorites - and several unusual shops. I recommend the bookstore on the corner of Main and Partition and the women's clothing store DIGS. A perfect location and perfect setting for a relaxing long weekend away from New York City.
