Description: Our very upscale, newly-built, cedar log home is located in the Bearsville area (home of the renowned Bearsville Theater and The Bear Cafe Restaurant), along one of Woodstock's most coveted picturesque roads (Coldbrook Road). Set on 19 private acres, the home offers a true respite from the hustle and bustle...amidst serene, unspoiled nature, yet is only minutes to the center of the town of Woodstock! The two-story home features soaring vaulted ceilings, heavy exposed log beams throughout, custom-milled wide-plank heart pine and natural slate tile floors. The home is comfortably furnished in the rustic, lodge-style of the Adirondack Great Camps. There is a large screened-in porch, and expansive decking front and rear.
The Main Living Area is the 32' x 26' Great Room the focal point of which is its massive Rumford-design wood-burning fireplace, constructed with our own local stone gathered from the property.
A true Gourmet Kitchen is highlighted by the current state-of-the art in residential restaurant-style ranges - 48' Capital Culinarian, featuring 6 -23,000 BTU open-style gas burners, a 30,000 BTU Thermo-griddle, 2 ovens (one has convection option) and an 18,000 BTU infrared broiler. Gorgeous honed black granite countertops are featured throughout. Expansive center island features built-in Viking microwave oven, trash compactor and stainless steel prep sink. Main sink is oversized in true restaurant-style, and includes a waste disposal.
The Bedrooms: There are two separate Master Bedroom wings, each with a walk-in closet and en suite bathroom. These bedrooms feature impressive two-story vaulted ceilings with exposed upper-story windowed dormers, lodge-style ceiling fans/lights and sliding doors leading to semi-private covered porches and deck. Both Master Bedrooms feature sumptuous King-sized, all-natural, organic latex mattresses. The en suite bathrooms both have custom-built slate tile showers, with ceiling-mounted 'rainshower' style showerheads, in addition to a handheld type. The east wing's shower is a stunning 6 ft x 6 ft walk-in, featuring Hansgrohe's extraordinary 24' Raindance 'Imperial 600' showerhead, providing an exhilarating
rain-like shower experience!
The Third Bedroom is a bunk room-style set-up, with two beautiful log-built Twin over Queen-sized bunk beds (sleeps 6). It has a large picture window, ceiling fan/light, individual reading 'lanterns,' and a wall-mounted flat screen TV with DVD player.
The Main Bathroom features a corner-style steam shower, with overhead 'rainshower' and handheld showerhead, plus body-sprays and integrated radio.
The 'Open Plan' Dining Area features a beautiful, rustic craftsman-built, 8 foot long bark-on hickory and curly maple dining table that will expand to 11 feet. It will seat 12 very comfortably. The dining area's chandelier is crafted of genuine whitetail deer antlers. Note: Any and all antler products used throughout the home are naturally shed, i.e., no animals harmed!
The large Upstairs Loft features a vaulted, log-beamed ceiling, ceiling fan/light, an exterior balcony/deck, a comfortable, faux-leather, sleeper sofa (Queen-sized mattress), a custom-built bark-on hickory and oak Daybed w/trundle (sleeps 2), a 60' flatscreen TV and a premium stereo sound system w/full range, floor standing speakers.

This home is perfect for vacations, holidays, entertaining, family gatherings, lodging when attending one of Woodstock's multitude of events, or just a much needed/deserved short getaway!
Activities abound in the Summer! Fall foliage is simply incredible. Winter, two of New York's top ski mountains - Hunter Mountain and Belleayre are less than a half-hour's drive away. Spring is always glorious.
There are world class spas, including the award-winning Emerson Resort & Spa, 'The Crown Jewel of Catskill Mountain Resorts,' and home of 'The World's Largest Kaleidoscope,' just 7 min away! The majestic Onteora Mountain House - former summer estate of Richard Hellman (the mayonnaise mogul)...now an acclaimed Bed and Breakfast and arguably the Hudson Valley's and Catskills' most sought after location for destination weddings for over a decade is just 2 minutes down the road. A 10 minute hike in the opposite direction will take you to Kenneth Wilson State Park - featuring campgrounds, picnic-grounds w/BBQ's, hiking and mountain bike trails, swimming and fishing lake. For hiking from center of town - walk 30 minutes up Rock City Road from the town square and you're at the beginning of marked trails leading throughout the Catskill mountain range. About half way up the mountain, you can rest up at Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery. Or for shorter hikes, walk ten minutes to Comeau Park and its meadows, streams, and trails.
Experience true world-class dining at one of the area's many fine restaurants, including the highly acclaimed Bear Cafe, The Red Onion, Cucina and two-time Food Network's 'Chopped' winner Rick Orlando's New World Home Cooking, just to name a few.

Greetings to all our prospective guests! My wife, Valerie and I are pictured here in Mykonos, where we celebrated our 30th anniversary (2009). We have 4 adult children and reside in Marlboro, NJ.
Woodstock is magical. There is something in the air - an extraordinarily positive vibe...good karma, a pervasive sense of peace, harmony, balance...a true restorative respite from the hustle and bustle of 21st century life!
There are so many lovely and unique homes in Woodstock, as well as inns, lodges, B&B's, etc. What we feel sets our home apart is that it offers a truly unique 'getaway-from-it all' experience, unlike any other to be found in the area; a style/decor that is a distinct departure from what we see day-in, day-out in our everyday lives, or even in our travels. When you arrive at our home, the vision seems precisely as you would expect to find in a rustic mountain lodge log home. It is a celebration of nature...the glorious creatures that inhabit it, the natural (sustainable) products it provides, and last but not least the extraordinary artists and craftspeople who thankfully continue to this day to maintain the time-honored traditions of creating hand-crafted, rustic furniture and furnishings out of nature's materials/materials gathered from nature, e.g., branches, twigs, bark, stone, etc., left in their most natural/least adulterated state - in the style of the Adirondack 'Camps.' Throughout the house, you will find many examples of their work, e.g., beds made from logs, tables made from branches, twigs, bark, chairs/stools made from hickory limbs, twig & bark framed mirrors, etc., as well as numerous touches of whimsy, e.g., genuine antler door knobs, pulls and handles, antler chandeliers/light fixtures, and all sorts of items celebrating the animals of the American wild, e.g., lighting fixtures with images of moose, elk, deer, bear, wolves, elk antler rack above the fireplace, animal-themed coat hooks, dinnerware, etc. In short, we've strived to recreate a type of rustic, cozy mountain lodge of our dreams. Perhaps you too have dreamed of how nice it would be to have a little log cabin getaway place somewhere? If so, we would love to have you make our not so 'little' home your Home Away From Home! [All antlers, antler products, etc., used in our home were naturally shed...what looks like leather and/or animal skins/fur is faux - no animals were harmed!]
This was our fourth year staying at this beautiful home. There were 9 of us this year. As usual, we hard a wonderful time. After visiting so many times, it truly is like coming home. Imagine our surprise when we saw it listed for sale in the window of a local real estate agency! We were devastated. While we will continue to take our annual girls weekend trip, we will truly miss our "little piece of heaven" log cabin!
Beautiful home with many amenities. We had only wished that there was a gas BBQ available as the charcoal BBQ on site was fillled with water and had only wet charcoal available. Ample sleeping for many. Steam shower did not work. Otherwise this home was great for our family get away.
We rented this magnificent house for a big girls weekend (11 of us). Compared to a lot of the houses that we looked at, this one was by far the largest, nicest and most affordable. It is perfect.
Usually a "Sleeps 16" means someone is on an uncomfortable couch in the middle of the common area. This house actually sleeps 16 with plenty of bathrooms.
Valeria was also amazing. She offered up her availability at any time during our stay, although we never needed it because everything was laid out, easy to find, and easy to use.
And the house is beautiful. Huge ceilings with lots of light and lots of room to spread out. The landscape is great too- hills on the back end and a giant, totally private front yard, complete with a large fire pit (and plenty of chairs!!).
I hope I don't regret reviewing this place and we want it to be available for our next trip to Woodstock!!
We loved the property! Everything was top of the line and meticulously maintained. We were attending my daughter's wedding and all the accompanying festivities so we didn't get to spend enough time in this beautiful home. We are all looking forward to coming back in the future when we can just relax and enjoy all of the properties amenities.
It's been 3 yrs in a row that a group of us have gotten together and rented this beautiful well kept home. We love it and are already making plans to go back next year!
I was looking to have the perfect non-traditional bachelorette party with close female friends and family. The idea of intense partying and bar hopping didn't appeal to me; I wanted the type of weekend where all of us could just stop being on the go, sit in a gorgeous home, play some board games, eat s'mores, and sip some good wine. This house was PERFECT. Everything Inside it is incredibly beautiful- the pictures are amazing and still don't do it justice. It is extremely clean, and everything is in perfect working order. Plus, Valerie (owner) is an absolute pleasure. We even had dinner at the restaurant she and Rick own (Ricks Wood-Fired Pizza- I would recommend that place to eat as much as I'd recommend the house). Woodstock itself is an adorable place, with lots of restaurants, shops, and tons of Art. As a musician, it was the perfect vacation spot for me. All 8 of us had an amazing time. We will be returning with our husbands, and will be renting this home again!
