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 We are happy to announce that our original sofabed has been replaced by a new Comfort Sleeper by American Leather.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

Beautiful. Quaint. Exactly what everyone needs

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I absolutley LOVED this little studio right outside of the heart of Woodstock, we were walking distance from the town, and a short drive away from numerous hiking trails. One thing to be sure of when you enter the property is that you enter through the gate on the right! There is a tiny sign on the gate door that we missed, but thats where you enter. The atmosphere of the house, the woods, and the town offers constant happiness, and total relaxation. We can't wait to come back!

Relaxing Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Writer's Cottage for 6 days while I took an art workshop in the Woodstock School of Art. It was just what I needed to relax after classes. It was cozy, clean and quiet. It was also close to town but far enough to be away from the busy tourists. It is very small and although it has a pull-out sofa bed for two I think it best suits one person. Enjoyed the deer watching me draw and there's a little stream in the back. There is more than enough to do; art, theater, shops, restaurants (my favorite is Joshuas), and galleries. The management team were very helpful and the owner had no problem stopping by to show me how to run the tv. I hope return and spend more time here.

Private getaway

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed this cottage in Woodstock. Very private yard (although joining cottage was unoccupied). Adequate size for myself and husband and small dog. Pull out sofabed was very comfortable. Grilled dinners at home each night. Close enough to town.

Romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (and our dog) loved our stay at this charming cabin. The atmosphere was romantic and extremely relaxing. The cabin itself was adorably decorated and extremely clean. My favorite book (Virgina Woolf's To the Lighthouse) was among the books in the shelves; it truly felt like the cabin was ours during our stay. We enjoyed eating at the local restaurants, grabbing coffee and pastries in the morning and enjoying some wine. Hiking to the Fire Tower was breathtaking and our pup enjoyed swimming in the Big Deep with us. The skylight shower and the sauna were a special treat. We enjoyed our relaxing stay.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay here while I took a work shop at the art school. It gave me the peace and quiet I needed. It was close to everything yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle in town. Everything was clean and everything worked. Will definitely return.

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.
