Treat yourself to a romantic getaway, personal retreat or creative sabbatical in your own private storybook cottage nestled in a 5-acre forest in Woodstock, the famous “colony of the arts” and cultural hub of the Catskills!
This historic Woodstock hand-built house was the home of the legendary film director, Preston Sturges ~ as well as many other well-known artists and musicians.
It features a spacious great room with a cathedral ceiling, 2-story north-light windows, a massive stone fireplace (open during the winter only), and 2 sets of French doors that open onto a blue stone patio overlooking a fern glade and deep pine forest.
Stretch out on the queen bed with a pillow-top mattress and luxury linens in the quaint bedroom with cottage-style casement windows. Fall asleep to the sound of crickets, and wake up to birdsong!
Climb an open stairway to a private writer’s office, as well as a loft space with a foldout futon couch and balcony overlooking the great room. There’s a second writer’s office on the first floor, with an arched Palladian window and forest views.
Prepare snacks and meals in your well-equipped country kitchen, and serve them at the farm table next to a wall of glass, or on the patio surrounded by gardens.
Cozy up to a fire in the stone fireplace in the winter, and watch the snow settle on the branches outside and transform the woods into a magical wonderland.
This charming cottage in an idyllic setting is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or creative retreat. Make the Sturges’ cottage your home for a weekend, week, month, or season, and let it inspire and uplift you throughout the year!
