• Full linens and towels, included. Maytag washer/dryer

• You will love this home like we do! It's stunningly beautiful, relaxing, not fancy, and very clean like your mother would keep it!

• Remote feeling in home and yard (you cannot see any neighbors, just lake and woods) yet convenient to village of Woodstock and only 5 miles from the NYS Thruway!

• Full central air conditioning, not window units. Multi-zone heating.

SWIMMING POOL IS HEATED. This helps you enjoy swimming during the mountain summers. The pool is closed during the fall and winter months.

And did we mention the view? We did? Yes, it really is that wonderful - you have to see it in person.


• 90 miles north of the George Washington Bridge in NYC.

• Best possible location - 5 minutes from the NYS Thruway -between Kingston and Woodstock.


• Miles of hiking/biking trails off the backyard.

• Barbeque grill on patio. Picnic on the deck!

• Heated outdoor swimming pool and oversized deck – perfect for summer picnics. Enjoy the lakeside view while you swim.

• Kids’ playroom downstairs with indoor rock climbing wall and 45” plasma screen television; stereo surround.

• Just seven minutes to Woodstock – we’ll be happy to recommend our favorite restaurants to you! Great gourmet dining surrounds this house just minutes in all directions.

• Nearby towns include Woodstock (theater, shopping, dining), Saugerties (HITS equestrian horse shows, antique stores, indoor skating rink and dining), Phoenicia (shops, tubing and hiking) and Kingston (10 minutes from movie theaters and Target/Wal-mart). Woodstock Film Festival, Festival of the Voice, Maverick Concert Series, and more. Belleayre Mountain (25 miles), Hunter Mountain and Windham Mountain are best nearby skiing.

This is a special retreat has previously been rarely available for rental. That is why the reviews are not recent - we did not allow rentals in 2015 or 2016. Non-Smoking home. A well-behaved dog or cat is welcome for an additional pet fee.

Note: The driveway and front yard to this home is near the road, but you cannot see your neighbors from any room in the house or from the pool or backyard. No boating or swimming is allowed on this reservoir - so it is very secluded and private for you. We like our weekends serene and peaceful, but the den has a large plasma screen TV and basic cable. Cell phone reception is fine for ATT & Verizon service!

About Sandra Cohen

We are a family of four who dearly loves this vacation home.

Why Sandra Cohen chose Kingston

Truly unique, 5 bedroom luxury Catskill home. The spectacular view from the living room and master bedroom will take your breath away. Lakeside yoga or massage, anyone? We love the mountain lifestyle in the Woodstock area: hiking, biking and horseback riding. Plus, within a 10 minute drive there are many terrific restaurants for sophisticated yet casual dining.

Nice spot, but....

  • 2 of 5

The spot is lovely. This is an older house with a new addition. The new addition is lovely. Nice master upper bedroom and nice living room with view. The kitchen is ok. The rest of the house is not up to par. The three bedrooms and two bathrooms and den on the lower floor haven't been touched in quite awhile.

We arrived to a fridge full of the owners food and closets full of their possessions with no closet or drawer space to hang or put our clothes away. The bathroom drawers were empty for our use.

We arrived Wednesday in August and the heat was mistakenly set in the three bedrooms and the basement. We contacted the owner and she had someone sent first thing Thursday morning to correct the problem. By Friday we (5 adults) had all arrived and noticed that when normal lights were on they often flickered all over the house. We mininmized our electrical usage. The internet was spotty at best. On Saturday evening there was no hot water. Plumber came an hour after being called and reset the water/ heating system.

Before we left the owner offered a rebate of one days cost on account of the problems we had.

Owner's Response: Hi Lawrence, We are happy you thought our location and home are lovely. We fixed all of your requests immediately and you only told us about two issues (heat on day one and the hot water within an hour). At our own initiative, we refunded you one nights stay right away, because the back bedroom temperature was 76 on the first night due to the heat being "on", instead of a more comfortable 72 which you preferred. You took good care of our home and we were pleased to host your family reunion. We are disappointed in your two-star rating, but as you can see from the other reviews, you are our first disappointed guest, so we will try even harder to please our next guest! Sandra

Quiet, Peaceful, Nature and Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9: 6 adults, 3 kids ages 5, 5 and 7 thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The home is very comfortable with something for everyone to do. Or, do nothing and gaze at the beautiful lake from the deck, patio or inside the living room. The kids loved it as there was non-stop activity with the heated pool, trampoline, games, etc. The flow in the house is great in bringing the family together for meals, family games or just hanging out - without being on top of each other. We loved that the only TV is downstairs. Of course getting the family to put the darn iphones and tablets down was another matter - but that is our world these days. We highly recommend this vacation home and we will come back for sure!

Stunning home with lots to love for entire family

  • 5 of 5

The home and property are really breathtaking. The home is nicely furnished but very comfortable and amazingly kid friendly as well. The beds in each of the bedrooms are very comfortable, the playroom in the basement isu fully stocked and kept my big and little kids endlessly entertained. The pool was terrific- very large and situated right off of the lake providing a stunning backdrop. The pool is actually very smartly done- one side is shallow enough for my 4 year old to swim in safely (rather than just hanging off the side of the walls) and the other side is much deeper which excited my older kids and had them diving off the diving board. The treehouse and robe climbing structure in the field off the house was lots of fun too. We spent time walking the trails outside the house and along the lake. My favorites of the house (there are many!): Ceiling to floor picture windows in the sitting room providing a stunning view of the pool and lake, the 3 season enclosed porch/room which is beautifully furnished and gives you the impression of sitting right in the middle of the woods, the stone sitting area outside the back of the house where we would sit on the swing and enjoy the night....the list goes on and on. We can't wait to visit again.

Perfect Family Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Sandra's house was the perfect location for our family's summer vacation. The views of the lake, pool, and surrounding woods are breathtaking. The house is clean, spacious, and provided everything that we needed to make it feel like our home away from home. Sandra went out of her way to make excellent tips and suggestions for local activities for our almost 7 and 2.5 year old daughters. They loved our morning nature walks, exploring the shops of downtown Woodstock, and buying produce at local farm stands. But in the end, they were mostly content swimming in the pool, bouncing on the trampoline, playing in the playroom, and doing art projects in the screened in back porch. None of us can wait to return next summer!

Perfect location

Sandra's home surpassed our expectations-- beautiful pool and deck with amazing views of the lake. Additionally, the surrounding wooded area was incredibly peaceful-- a perfect escape from the city!

Beautiful property in Woodstock, NY

  • 5 of 5

The house and setting were perfect for our recent visit to Woodstock, NY. The owner checked in with us several times to see if we needed anything. The kids (ages 9 and 5-1/2) had a fabulous time playing in the downstairs playroom complete with climbing wall and outside with a trampoline, treehouse and big yard. The location was extremely convenient and the view from the living room spectacular! It is a very comfortable house that we would definitely visit again!
