Overview

Catskills House Rental Photos and Description

900sq.ft.beautifully furnished, Walk to town, mountain views, gardens, Sleeps 6

Located a short walk from the center of Woodstock, NY, the Blue Pearl is a very private, quiet, comfortable, elegant and very romantic cottage facing a private gorgeous flower garden! It is owned and decorated by an artist and is filled with original art work, unique and exotic details and furniture. The Blue Pearl offers 900sq ft of luxury, with 2 queen size beds, designer bedding, beautiful bathroom, fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and everything you need to cook a meal with (except for the food) a private bedroom with very comfortable queen size bed, chandelier, skylight and gorgeous draperies. * Enjoy the town and the surroundings or stay home and relax on your sultan-style sofa, basking in the sunlight streaming through the 3 skylights 20 feet overhead! The living room is huge but cozy with Tuscan colors and plush oriental rugs, a sitting area with couch, comfy chair and a fire place, a large desk and library area, a dining area with a round table and 4 chairs and the second very comfortable and exotic bed. The lighting is gorgeous throughout the cottage and all on dimmers. In the summer, have your meals in the garden over looking the Catskills Mountains, or lounge on the long chairs in the sunny meadow, surrounded by flowers and tall grasses, and snuggle under the stars at night by a blazing fire in the fire pit and glowing torches. In the winter, ski the nearby Catskills slopes, or cozy up to a fire in the gas-fueled heat stove while admiring the mountain view. There are additional electric baseboard heaters with thermostat in bedroom and bathroom so you'll be nice and cozy in the cooler months! The Blue Pearl is truly a hidden gem and oasis, a place former guests have described as a ' work of art' and was described in a national travel magazine as 'the lodging equivalent of a consciousness raising that inspires renewal of mind, body and spirit'

*There is a blackout blind for the skylight in the bedroom and we have a third deluxe air bed for larger families.

Many fun things to do in Woodstock in the winter. Just a half hour from great skiing at Hunter Mountain and Bellayre!

About Evelyne Pouget

I was born in Paris, France. From there I moved to Rome for 4 years then to New York City where I lived for 25 years in the East Village. I’ve also traveled quite a bit to exotic places: Nepal, India, Algeria, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Jamaica, Mexico, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Sicily, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Panama, Laos, Vietnam, Turkey, Bali.

I‘ve been all around the world, but I’ve chosen to live in Woodstock, for its beauty, tranquility, and community.

Evelyne Pouget purchased this house in 1994

Why Evelyne Pouget chose Catskills

The history of the land upon which it is built is a history rich with art, music, creativity, and self-expression. The previous owners were both artists. And before them, the property was owned by the legendary Ruth Ingalls, a grand dame who turned it into a Creative Arts camp – a dynamic place where Bob Dylan and many other locals sent their children to learn, grow, and experience. The cottage used to be the bunk beds for girls.

Jimi Hendrix once lived across the street. So did Jimmy Cobb, the legendary drummer who played with Miles Davis, George Bellows, the great American painter lived on the next block. And today, the tradition continues. Within a five-minute drive are the homes and studios of more than 40 artists – many of whom will be happy to show you their work (if we give them just a bit of notice).

What makes this house unique

On a quiet dead end lane just 12 minutes walk from cappuccino, restaurants and the center of town. Amazing gardens, mountain views, lawns, privacy. Original artwork on every wall. Wireless internet. A great vacation place, a long retreat heaven! A fun family home away from home! Come and experience it, you will want to move there!

....and you may!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Pearl and in Woodstock. Everything was perfect, easy to book, easy to get to, wonderful cottage, great location, a short pleasant walk into the village. Very comfortable and everything we needed was provided. A very relaxing and romantic place to stay. Thank you!

This sweet cottage was pure delight. Everything about it was wonderful.....to the feeling of zen; designer sheets and comfortable bed to the fire pit! Even had a sweet bunny greet us every morning. Will definitely return in the fall!

Truly Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

When my fiancé and I first walked into the Blue Pearl we were in awe. Much bigger then we anticipated, we walked around taking in the sun shining from the skylights throughout the living room space and bedroom. (There is a shade for the skylight in the bedroom for those sensitive to sunlight in the AM). The kitchen was very cute and well equipped with anything you may need for a nice meal. It was nice to have different types of tea provided if you were in the mood for a cup on a cozy night or first thing in the morning. The bathroom has great hot water and the basic essentials you may need with fresh towels. We loved the small fireplace that was put in the cottage for ambience. There is good heating and AC in the cottage. Cd's and a small radio, chess, checkers and cards, books are provided for your down time. This place was very clean and the decor was like no other... It was a bit nippy outside for this time of year so we decided not to sit out front in the garden but we would love to when we come back! There are lots of shops near by which we loved and had a great time buying a few things. The people in the small town near by are very friendly. The restaurants near by have good food. A lot of organic ingredients which is always a plus for me! Overall we had a very relaxing stay and would love to revisit!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving at a vacation destination , whether it be a house, cottage, cabin, hotel room, we usually do so with great anticipation. Opening the door to the Blue Pearl was like none other!. The cottage is warm, inviting, beautiful with the owners art work displayed and the unique lovely decor. Although it was cold for this time of year, each day we bundled up and enjoyed the view of overlook mountain from the front yard. Thank you for this great experience. We want to come again and will tell our relatives and friends about the Blue Pearl.

With warm regards,

Larry and Joan

My boyfriend and I had a marvelous stay at the Blue Pearl. The Blue Pearl truly lives up to its name "The Hidden Gem". It is located in a quiet, peaceful area surrounded by nature and its beautiful amenities. The interior is magnificent and shines all over. I would strongly recommend this rental to anyone who is interested in a unique and one of a kind experience. Thank you!!!

Like a museum

  • 5 of 5

It's 3:00 in the afternoon. We planned to visit the monastery, Roosevelt's library, and take a walk through the charming town, but we're still here at the Blue Pearl! There was no place else we would rather be. The elegance of the decor was museum quality, indeed, with Evelyne's art work throughout the cottage,, it was a museum. And not just the paintings and photographs - as she explained when we arrived, this cottage was her 3 dimensional canvas. Comfort, elegance, beauty await you at the Blue Pearl. If this sounds like an advertisement, that's the kind of spell this place casts on you. It's been a week since our visit and we are still glowing.
