Beautifully Appointed 1876 country house with sweeping lawns and an expansive, enclosed bluestone patio that is perfect for BBQs or roasting s'mores in the fire pit.
The house itself is spacious & loaded with charm. The kitchen is well-equipped with a butler's pantry formal dining room that seats 12 and overlooks the landscaped garden. A screened-in porch overlooks the lawns in front of the house. The large living room features a dramatic wood-burning fireplace, flat screen TV and comfortable seating. The master bedroom offers wonderful views of the woods and the occasional deer behind the house where acres of private hiking trails begin. The large barn, situated by a stream, has been converted into a game room complete with pool, ping-pong, foosball, air hockey, a basketball game, darts, etc. This insures that even if the weather is bad, there is always something fun to do!
The house is situated between Phoenicia & Woodstock and a short drive from local shops & farm stands.
Hiking Trails: The carriage trails are extensive. We border state land which is approx 150 acres and misc. neighboring land of 600 acres. the use of ATV vehicles might be available.
We had an amazing time time at this wonderful house! Would definitely recommend it for families that like to swim in an awesome huge pool, soak in a hot tub and play tons of games in the game room next to the house (pool, air hockey, shuffleboard, basketball game, etc, too many to name but all of them fun!) Couldn't get my family out of the pool or hot tub, some nights in there until midnight! It was too hot and buggy to try any of the walking trails but might like to come back in the fall and try them. Drove through the nearby Town of Woodstock which looked interesting but didn't have a chance to stop. Ate at the Hickory BBQ on Route 28 which was delicious! All in all, a great time was had by all of us and I would recommend it for all ages..
This is the second time we rented and we can’t wait to go back. We are a family of five with young kids and stayed here for a long weekend with two other young families. We have rented multiple other pool properties in NY state and there is a reason we want to keep coming back to this one. With young children, this place could not be more practical and convenient. Everything is spacious and laid out in a way that cooking, grilling, dining, entertaining and watching kids in pool can be done simultaneously. When its time to switch activity there is a massive, flat, front lawn just a few steps away and suitable for every yard game you can think of. From there one can walk another few steps to the game room that can keep anyone between 4 and 100 yrs old entertained for hours. The house and outdoor area is well maintained and everything works as it is supposed to. The owner is very responsive, friendly and helpful.
Spent a long weekend at the house with my wife, baby and in-laws. Had a great time despite an unexpected 8 inch of snow. Highlights were definitely the large open fire place, game room and large dining room. Plan on going back when the weather is warmer to enjoy the pool and hot tub as well. The owner was very responsive and accommodating.
The house was perfect with everything we needed for a relaxing escape from nyc. Tons of activities to do on the property - the only problem was it was too cold to take advantage of all of them, especially the hot tub! The owner was great and really accommodating to everything we needed throughout our stay. Great place, great location and we hope to rebook in the summer!
We went with our family for thanksgiving weekend and had a great time. The house was perfect and had a cozy cute feel to it. Plenty of space for everyone and the game room was the cherry on top, all the games you can imagine, our kids loved it and the adults too. The back yard was beautiful and hot tub was a nice way to relax after some good hiking that you can do just behind the house. Jim was great and we will defenitly go again.
Jim was very pleasant, easy to reach and made every effort to ensure our comfort. We spent the week of Labor Day at the house and enjoyed the well kept property during exceptional weather. Upon driving up to the house, you'll park near the game room and walk a short distance to the main house. The main house has a beautiful stone patio with seating and views of the mountain scenery. To the left of the patio is a hammock that you can lay in and enjoy the serene landscape on the property. Just inside, the living room has a large L shaped cozy couch, fireplace and entertainment center that was a great way to wind down after an eventful day. The living room leads into a beautiful dining room, a screened in patio as well as leads into the kitchen. The screened in patio offers a way to enjoy the cool breeze without worrying about nighttime critters. In the day its another beautiful place to enjoy the mountain views. The kitchen was fully stocked and a pantry nearby was well stocked with those little things you would need so you don't have to run to the nearby store. The kitchen has a seating area that allows you to enjoy a meal and take in the scenery of the back yard, where the pool and patio are in full view. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, and two full baths. The master bedroom has stunning views of the wooded area surrounding the property. The master bath is well stocked and has a jaccuzi tub that is a great way to relax at the end of an eventful day. The shower is beautifully tiled and the skylight in the center of the bathroom rounded off the luxury bathroom experience. A private bedroom off to the side of the master bedroom with it's own set of stairs to get to the kitchen offers lots of privacy. The other bedroom has two full beds and a full bath, giving the house lots of comfortable space to rest.
The swimming pool has a heater, that if you choose to use, costs extra and that price depends on the duration of use as well as how high you try to put the pool temperature. The the pool was one of the major highlights of this house along with the hot tub. The game room made this house one of the most incredible experiences for our family. Table tennis, foosball, air hockey, pool, shuffle board, bocci ball, basketball, darts, chess and more... this was a great place to go as a family.
