Overview

About the property

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 We are happy to announce that our original sofabed has been replaced by a new Comfort Sleeper by American Leather.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.

Excellent weekend getaway for couples

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. It's a small compact place, faithfully depicted in the photos, and it had everything my wife and I (and small dog) needed for a weekend break in Woodstock. Easy access to everything, with Overlook Mountain Trail a short drive up the road. Nice clean fully equipped - oh and the new sofa bed is excellent. Fast response from the Chelsea the manager to our queries prior to arrival. Recommended.

Quiet, clean and peaceful. Close to town, hikes and history.

My first night I sat outside and watched mesmerized as the trees I was surrounded by languidly lit up with lightning bugs.

Lovely studio getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The studio was small but we had enough room for myself, husband and small dog. The place was very clean and we had everything we needed! The Yard was very nice and private. We even saw 6 deer in the woods! The sauna was perfect! Would definitely recommend rock city studio!

We loved our stay at Rock City studio! The location close to town is great; communication with the owner was terrific, and the small studio is darling and well-appointed with thoughtful details throughout. Highly recommend!

Cozy, clean, getaway

  • 4 of 5

I really liked this little studio. I would recommend staying there for one person or a couple who is okay with close quarters. It was decorated very nicely and very clean which is so important to me. The nordic spa is a great addition. I am a light sleeper and the heat kept me up at night with a lot of clanging and banging. It didn't bother me during the day, but at night it was constant and kept me up. So I would recommend either not turning it on (difficult in the winter months) or wearing ear plugs for sure! Close to town which is great. Thank you for a lovely place!
