About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms-sleeps 8-10

Our beautiful Shady Home is now available to discriminating renters-A recently remodeled 2 story country home on 1.25 acres, located 5 miles from Woodstock on a dead end road. Very private, yet minutes to town. In ground swimming pool (open Memorial Day thru Labor Day). This home has been in the family for over 45 years and has been carefully and lovingly furnished and equipped for children and grandchildren. Some of the owner's antique family furniture, art works and library are displayed and used, yet it is very comfortable. In the last 5 years, the owners have built a new kitchen and dining addition, renovated the 2nd floor to 3 new bedrooms and a new bathroom, with tub/shower. All new appliances, In 2009, an all-year round sun porch was built adjoining the living room. Check availability calendar.

Our Shady Home: Until a few years ago, our home was located in the hamlet of Shady- Unfortunately, Shady merged with Bearsville and now our postal address is Bearsville, But since our family had always called it 'Our Shady Home', we will continue to do so- Hence the name.

Sit Back & Relax, & the Great Outdoors

  • 5 of 5

Each year I chose a location where close friends and I spend our New Year's vacation. This was our fifth year (I believe). We are mostly New York City folk so we try to keep the destination relatively accessible for the majority of the group, while also being far enough away so that we can leave our day to day stresses behind. This lovely house definitely met those criteria.

Here, one can escape the tumult of the city's traffic, trucks, and trains. On a clear night, you can spot an infinite number of stars in the sky, since there are no tall buildings blocking the horizon, nor overpowering streetlights dimming them to the naked eye.

The rooms are cozy and decorated by the owning family. The house is not an uninspiring hotel room; a family had thrived under this roof and they left their markings and character throughout the household.

It is easy to sit back and take a breather in this home. I quickly forgot about the stresses and worries which I happily left at home. I can see that the same is true for the friends that I had spent this holiday with.

Further, this home is a great destination for those who love the great outdoors. Hunter Mountain is less than a half hour away, and Windham is just a little further. There are hiking trails only ten minutes away, and there are countless number of places to hike within the region. For those who love mountains, or winter sports this destination if fantastic.

The owners were always gracious and responsive. Definitely one of the best experiences I have had with homeowners who use homeaway.com

WONDERFUL HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is magnificent. It was an absolute pleasure to be staying here. It is beautifully updated, pristene, and meticulous: the cleanest house we have ever rented! We, (my husband, teenage daughter, and very small dog) all felt so welcomed. The grounds are so beautiful, which gives a feeling of such serenity. We saw three deer while having our morning coffee. We recommend this house to all!!

Very Homy Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for 5 couples to get away for a long weekend in Feb and it had everything we needed! Accommodations to sleep 10, fully stocked everything, clean, modern finish with a warm and country feel, fireplace to sit in front of, located near skiing, hiking, and minutes from Woodstock. This house really felt homey and we really enjoyed staying in your shady home.

Wonderful Woodstock Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Shady Home. It has all the facilities/amenities of one's home. It is beautifully located in the woods with 100% privacy and has a wonderful pool. The house is immaculate, it is very well maintained and is very modern. The owner and manager provide outstanding customer service. I highly recommend this place to ALL! I know we will be coming back here again very soon! Thank you for sharing your home with us.
