Overview

Woodstock Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio cottage with kitchenette, sauna, writing porch, sleeps 2

Treat yourself to a relaxing, rejuvenating and inspiring retreat in your own private historic studio cottage in the heart of Stonecrop, the estate owned by Anita M. Smith — renowned writer, artist, historian and “Herb Lady of the Catskills.”

Nestled at the gateway to Woodstock’s legendary Overlook Mountain, Rock City Writer’s Studio is walking distance (just over 1/2 mile) to the Woodstock Village Green, where you’ll find galleries, boutiques, restaurants and cafes. Or just stay home and relax in your bucolic retreat surrounded by wildlife and nature.

Prepare snacks and meals in your well-equipped kitchenette, and serve them on the screened-in bluestone porch, or at the bluestone table on the lawn with a gas grill surrounded by gardens.

Treat yourself to a relaxing sauna in your Nordic sauna for two, followed by a shower under a skylight.

The living room converts into a cozy bedroom at night. We are happy to announce that our original sofabed has been replaced by a new Comfort Sleeper by American Leather. This high-end "marvel of engineering" opens into a luxurious queen bed with a solid platform (no bars, springs or sagging) and a thick high-density foam mattress with luxury linens. Described as a "non-sofabed", the Comfort Sleeper is easy to operate, glides open and closed effortlessly, and is extremely comfortable for a restful night's sleep!

The living room also features a 32” flat-screen HDTV with cable service and a Blu-Ray player, as well as an extensive collection of books and DVDs. Other amenities include spa towels and robes, WIFI, and private parking.

BONUS: Rent Rock City Writer's Studio with Herb Cottage (#3469885) to accommodate family or friends and save! When Rock City Writer's Studio and Herb Cottage are rented together, a 10% discount off both applies. Please inquire for details.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how perfect of a getaway Rock City is. Great furnishings and everything that is needed for a short term stay. Love the sauna especially after a long hike. The proximity of the studio to downtown Woodstock is within walking distance which is an added bonus. Outdoor grill, beautiful and well kept grounds. An absolutely peaceful and tranquil setting. We can't wait to book our next trip.

Inspirational Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

The studio is a perfect place to detach yourself from reality for a while. As you close the door to the privacy fence behind you, you're in your own garden of peace and quiet. I can see and understand what Anita M. Smith saw when she retreated here to paint and write many years ago. A visitor here will see her paintings and her book of the history of Woodstock. The studio is comfortable and the grounds are beautiful, and this is all in the middle of a flourishing artists'/musicians'/writers' community. A perfect place to think and reflect. Thank you Chelsea for doing everything to make our stay very enjoyable!

Terrific hideaway close to town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights to attend a wedding at Byrdcliff Barn and couldn't have been happier. The studio had everything we needed and more! Very private, yet a short walk into the town center. Enjoyed spending time in the backyard relaxing and enjoying nature. Definitely recommend and would stay again.

A perfect little cottage in a prime location

  • 5 of 5

Personally this was one of my favorite HomeAway rentals. Everything mentioned in the description of the property was accurate. Nothing about this property was negative; I could not believe how clean and well maintained it was. Nothing beats that view from on top of Overlook Mountain which is a quick 5 minute drive up the road. You can hear a small stream in behind the house trickling while you relax in the yard. The down town area is within walking distance and there is enough to do there to keep you occupied all day. I would recommend this property rental to anyone looking to stay in the Wood Stock area and I couldn't picture staying anywhere else in the area after staying here. The owner and manager provide excellent assistance and help with anything you need - very quick correspondence. Enjoy!

Awesome Time Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at the Rock City Writer's studio and it was another great getaway. We love visiting Woodstock and this cottage is an awesome place to stay. Everything about this Studio is awesome and its well taken care of and clean. It's also close enough to town so you can walk but far enough away so you can enjoy some piece and quite.
