Overview

Catskills House Rental Photos and Description

Home, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This home is in the center of a 200 acre mountainside estate property. It has been renovated to maximize the views from each room. Most rooms face southeast and look upon the back side of Overlook Mountain. You can also see to the south as far as New Paltz and beyond on a clear day. Every season and weather condition is spectacular to see from the house. Below the front lawn is a fenced in 20x40 foot heated swimming pool with it's own cabana (open seasonally). Below that is a park-like area with a screened in gazebo. The pool is for your private use. The owner/caretaker lives in a house located behind the main house. Your privacy will be respected. It is assumed that you are here to get away from it all, but someone is here if you need assistance.

The central part of the house was built in the late 1800's and comprises the living room and sun porch downstairs, with two small bedrooms, a large bedroom with non-working stone fireplace and double bed, and a full bath upstairs. At one end of this central area is the dining room, the huge eat-in kitchen, and another glassed in porch with an additional dining/sitting area and a Steinway grand piano. There is an outside dining terrace off the kitchen with the best view on the property. At the other end of the house, the entrance way hall leads to the living room. Off this hallway is another guest room with a queen bed, full bathroom, and efficiency kitchenette area. Above this is the master bedroom suite, which includes a queen bed, a private bathroom with jetted tub and separate tiled shower, a large walk in closet, elevator access, a separate outside entrance, and a small library. The house can accommodate a total of eight people.

About Diane Legier

Hi. I have lived in paradise on this Catskill mountain for 30+ years. It is time to downsize my personal living space and share the incredible beauty of this property with others. Every time I travel, I am struck anew by how much of our country is covered with developments and commercialization. Coming home to Woodstock and to this peaceful retreat is so soothing to the soul. Come and see for yourself...

Diane Legier purchased this house in 1978

Why Diane Legier chose Catskills

Woodstock and the surrounding area is blessed with beauty, art, exciting positive energy, interesting people, and lots of great restaurants and nearby adventures. It is such a sanctuary for the soul. I relocated to this area from NYC in 1969 (Could it be that I was a hippy?) There has always been an influx of interesting refugees from the city. I think this is because nature is so lush and untainted here and yet cultural stimulation is within easy reach.

What makes this house unique

The most striking thing about this property (I call it Bristol Hill), is the scenery. Photos do not do it justice. Sit on the terrace and watch the reflection of the setting sun on the back of Overlook Mountain. It is as healing as a meditation retreat. The stillness is only broken by the chirping birds that abound here. You may see wild turkeys, deer with their fawns, squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, incredible cloud formations...What you mostly will not see is other people. There are trails to hike, a pool to relax in, a ramshackle tennis court with lots of excuses for missed shots, a pool table for rainy days and outside dining for sunny afternoons. If you are a pianist or a student of the piano, please come and play the Steinway O in the breakfast room. You really don't have to go anywhere, but if you do, Woodstock Center is just 10 minutes away.

Perfect mountain retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We spent February break at this beautiful home in Bearsville with our 2 kids. The home is very neat, clean, nicely decorated and very spacious with gorgeous views from almost every room. This house has it all! We've rented many homes in the Hamptons, Montauk and the Carribean and have never come across a home with so many amenities. The House is very organized and thoughtfully well stocked. The kitchen was stocked with full sets of dinnerware, serving dishes, glassware, cutlery and pot size options.... Which is almost always lacking in the homes we've rented. The owners really go above and beyond making sure that you have the comforts of home at your fingertips including a full cabinet of spices, condiments and even choices of cooking oils. Beyond the kitchen there were thoughtful touches as well: flashlights in most rooms, nightlight and outlet cover options for each outlet, extra pillows, sheets and blankets and even boxed tissues in every room. The owners are very attentive and not intrusive at all, even though their own home is adjacent to this house. We're already looking to book another stay here.

Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third family reunion at Diane's gorgeous home. We celebrated Thanksgiving a week early and enjoyed her fully stocked kitchen (even a meat thermometer!) and beautiful table settings. The place feels like home to us now and is the perfect spot for a big multigenerational get-together. Room for kids to crawl around, parents to enjoy the view and sip their wine, and grandparents to get quiet time too. Especially love the handicap accessibility. We'll be back!

Magical!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying that Diane and Barb are wonderful hosts and were so kind and considerate to us during our entire stay. They truly go above and beyond to make you feel at home. The house and property are even more beautiful than they appear in the photos (if you can even imagine that). The views are truly breathtaking. The house is also immaculately clean and the pool is extremely well maintained. I have rented many houses and this is truly one of the best there is - the reviews speak for themselves, we will definitely be back!

Still Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (and some very happy, ecstatic friends and relatives!) have now stayed at Bristol Hill three times. The review I wrote after our first visit was titled "Paradise," and I can honestly say that nothing has changed. The gorgeous house and grounds are impeccably maintained, and Diane and Barb go out of their way to make sure that everything for our stay is perfect. The short review is this: We've been renting vacation properties in the Woodstock area for over twenty years. Bristol Hill is the benchmark against which we measure every other property, and, so far, nothing has measured up. So, if you're looking for an amazing, large, well-maintained house that is perfect for entertaining, in a beautiful location, with plenty of wildlife, flowers, trees and forest, hiking, swimming, and breathtaking views (all this and only a short drive to the town of Woodstock), then look no further: this is it. If you would like more detail, please see my review from August 2013.

Estate with a View

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Bristol Hill and I have say it was as beautiful and relaxing as I remembered it from our first visit. The grounds are really lovely, the pool is in a wonderful, secluded spot, and the house itself is spacious. The owners are very accommodating and not at all intrusive. My family and our friends thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning!!
