Guest Review: We couldn't believe our eyes and our senses when we stayed at 'The Gift'. Our home away from home is a casually elegant farmhouse appointed with early American antiques and every modern comfort. The attention to detail made us feel very comfortable. The cozy fireplace is framed by sun drenched windows on either side. The modern kitchen is a cook's delight. Out of the two bedrooms we chose to sleep in the large upstairs loft with a surround sound entertainment system. We didn't even get to use the system downstairs. Ahh, the steam room for two is a must-use. Because of the cold weather we didn't get to use the wrap around screened in porch, but will do so on our next visit. The village of Woodstock is a just a 7 minute ride which rounded out our get-away weekend. We certainly could have stayed longer.' Roberta/Terry Ossining, NY

Guest Review: We are from NYC and wanted to escape the city and spend my 40th birthday in a secluded house in the woods. We spent so much time looking for the perfect getaway place. We found 'The Gift' and it seemed too good to be true. Judy, the owner, was

wonderful. The house is amazing! The pictures on the website do not do it justice. We ended up spending evenings at home, cooking in the gourmet kitchen, soaking in the hot tub, playing games and laughing so much. Thanks Judy! This weekend was

really special and we will certainly be back. Marty, NYC

In a word, romance. we had the thrill of staying in this luxurious cottage this past weekend. Not only is it in a fabulous location perfect for visiting food markets and shops, but it also gives you the perfect base to experience the country in a manner that the average tourist never really does. The cottage is a godsend for two couples or friends. The ahhhhhhh feeling was great. We will definitely be back.

Guest Reviews: Your house feels like a home!! It is hard for us to leave. It is truly a 'gift'! We'll definitely be back. The beautiful property

is worth driving 5 hours from Montreal! Miguel & Edith

Words and pictures cannot describe the beauty of this cottage. It is truly a gift!. My boyfriend and I spent five days in this relaxing, sanctuary. I was astonished by the loving detail put throughout the cottage. The kitchen is absolutely beautiful and inspired us both to find our inner chefs. After a strenuous day of hiking we soaked our tired muscles in the outdoor hot tub. The tree lights added to the soothing atmosphere. One of my favorite parts of the cottage was the wrap around porch it was a great spot to get lost in a novel. Judy made us feel at home and was very helpful and before and during our stay. The cottage is located in an ideal spot, 5 minutes from the center of Woodstock. Before we left we started planning our next visit! We can’t wait to come back! Renee, N.J.

About Judy

We are so happy to share our amazing estate with you. Although less than a mile from the village of Woodstock, we are away from it all, off a dead end road and on a Private Road. We share our 8 acres of paradise city with our adorable, friendly Boxer Pups. Meet Jackson and Toby. While they stay in their own fenced in portion, they provide a sense of security and comfort to us and our guests.

Judy purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Judy chose Catskills

The Gift is our guest house and is situated across our driveway but sits on its own 2 1/2 acres, facing its own stream, woods. You may see deer, turkey, owls and turtles.

What makes this cottage unique

Sawkill Family Ski Center

Great for families only 10 min from the house.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This picture perfect cabin exceeded our expectations, and then some. The attention to detail throughout the home in terms of design features & amenities was impressive. Add in a warm host (armed with great local recommendations), and private hot tub overlooking a lush forest, and you've got yourself a second to none retreat in Woodstock.

Beautiful Country Cottage best of the best!

  • 5 of 5

I travel all over the United States and i am in Hotels, B&B's Cottages and condos almost every weekend in the summer so i have seen the best and the worst. I can truly say that this was one of the most pleasant stays i have had in almost 7 years of travel. The Cottage is off a private gravel road which adds to its charm, the kitchen is a chef's dream, the beds are VERY comfortable, The screened in porch has a stellar view of the woods and the small creek. There is a great double lounge chair on the deck that was my home for most of the trip... cooking great food with good friends, enjoying the hot tub, grilling, sitting by the fireplace at night and sleeping in complete comfort... if you don't like these things then stay away! ****** that's six stars! Really amazing, enjoy and just minutes into Woodstock proper... Judy and her husband are invisible unless you need anything then they are super attentive which made our stay even nicer....

Could not have been better. Charming, well equiped, esthetic, luxurious cottage in lovely surroundings. Wondrous kitchen! Hot tub AND steam shower AND fireplace equal total relaxation. We are looking forward to a return visit any weather, any season. Truly.

Wonderful Weekend out of the City

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent a weekend at "The Gift," and I couldn't recommend it more highly. My boyfriend and I were looking for somewhere we could drive up for the weekend to get away from New York City, and came across this cabin.

It was perfectly sized for two people - many of the rentals we came across provided much more space than we needed. The house is incredibly well appointed and homey; we spent lots of time cooking in the kitchen, building fires, and enjoying the high quality entertainment system. The cabin was close to the main house, which was nice so we didn't feel completely secluded, but was very private. The steam shower was also amazing - probably my favorite part of the property.

The house was a quick drive to both downtown Woodstock and restaurants in Saugerties.

Lovely, but not very private

  • 4 of 5

Loses a star for the all-caps "PRIVATE" description. The cottage was lovely, and remote, but not private. The owner's house is right across the drive looking down into half the windows of the cottage. There were dog walkers in and out, dogs barking when we stepped outside, cars on the road within site of the hot tub. Nothing egregious, and maybe no one else cares, but coming from NYC we were hoping for more privacy and seclusion.

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Judy was a great caretaker and the house was a gen! Hot tub was a perfect reprise after hiking Slide Mountain in the winter!

Kitchen was spacious and contemporary. Perfect for two couples.

I would definitely rent from Judy again!

Such a treat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at 'The Gift". The cottage is gorgeous and the kitchen was so well stocked with tools and equipment that we were able to really cook up a storm! Whether it was sitting by the fire, soaking in the hot tub or exploring the surrounds, this is the perfect location for a getaway.
