Overview

Woodstock Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A cosy 1870's post and beam restored barn

The Teahouse Cottage is on an estate that was the home of Woodstock artist Judson Smith, who used it for one of his studios in the 1940's and 1950's. Later, his daughters converted it to a guest cottage. The drops of paint on the floor from Smith's work more than half a century ago are preserved in the carefully restored and refinished hardwood floor.

Click the 'More Details' link to see the full description.

This petite cottage overlooks a lovely trout stream and faces the river and a 75 acre park with 2 mile walking trail just on the other side of the river that goes upstream and loops back through the forest to the edge of the property. If the river is high, you can access the trail head by going into town, behind the outdoor Shakespeare stage next to the Woodstock town offices.

The Trailways bus from New York City stops in the village of Woodstock, a half mile from the cottage.

Originally built in the 1870's as a small barn on the estate. This 1870's vintage antique post and beam barn has been fully renovated, while preserving it's original charm - new bath, new kitchen, refinished antique hardwood floors, queen size pillow top mattress in the sleeping loft. The sleeping loft is accessed by a ladder. On the ground floor there is a queen size Murphy bed.

There is wifi and a TV with basic cable and a built in DVD player is. No password needed.

Update October 2014: Now there is a fireplace by the stream for the use of guests of the Schoolhouse and Teahouse Cottages. We leave a maul [splitting ax] hanging on a tree next to the fireplace, and there's a chopping block. On the upstream [westerly] edge of the estate is a supply of firewood, some of which will need splitting. We include a 'Campfire Primer' in our attachments in case you don't have experience with them.

Check in time 2:00 PM, check out time 11 AM.

The taxes are included in the rate.

After you make an inquiry or book a property, we always respond with information and attachments by email, usually promptly and always within 12 hours. So if you don’t receive that, please let us know [check spam folder first]. Thank you.

About andrew peck

This is our 'dream property' which we found in 2002. We weren't looking for a home, but my wife Chloe happened to see the estate the first day it was on the market and called me from the property to come see it. We immediately put in a full price offer, only to be told later that there was another higher offer. We then raised our offer by $80,000. but they sold it to the other buyer anyway for $50K less than our offer. We called the buyer's lawyer and told him to tell the buyer we would pay his price if he were willing to sell. A few months later he called us and offered it for $115,000. more than he'd paid. We were ecstatic. With four post and beam barns circa 1870 three of which had been converted to residences in the 1940's by a local artist of some repute [Judson Smith], fruit trees, a trout stream running though, adjacent to a 77 acre park, and walking distance from the village of Woodstock, there is no other property in the world we can imagine more desirable to us. There was lots of work to do. Now with a decade of work and $250K in renovations, we have it ship shape.

Cozy house

  • 5 of 5

The house was very well put together and well stocked. We enjoyed the proximity to town and also the nice space out by the water. I strongly suggest this property for a group of two to four and feel it was a nice value. We had a couple questions and Andrew was very responsive and helpful.

Relaxing and Lovely

  • 5 of 5

This is such a wonderful well equipped cabin. Everything we needed was provided from pans to shampoos. The stream and small waterfall in the property were so relaxing. It's also near two swimming holes. Great to get away from the city and enjoy nature at it's best. My parents, sister, small dog, and I loved it. Will definitely book again.

Beautiful property and responsive host

  • 4 of 5

The property and cottage were lovely. The bed in the loft area is cozy and everything was clean and ready upon our arrival. The one issue I had was that the grill outside was not working as the propane tank valve was broken. I emailed the owner and he came out and replaced the tank. When I had difficulty lighting it (it was EXTREMELY WINDY that day), he came over and helped light it, which was not an easy task. He was very nice and available to help. Everything was great, and I would definitely come back here to stay again.

Owner's Response: Yes, the water treatment system required service from Culligan that week, and it took a few days for the sulfur to clear out. This is the second time in 8 years there has been this issue. Normally, there is no sulfur in the water. [The same well, and the same water, supplies our home, so we know at once when there's a problem]. Andrew Peck and Chloe Dresser

Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Had a really nice long weekend staying at the Teahouse Cottage in Woodstock. The stream outback is beautiful. The cottage is cozy and well-equipped.

It's a short drive or pleasant walk into "downtown" Woodstock, where you'll find plenty of good restaurants (Oriole 9, Bread Alone, and Catskills Pizza were favorites), art galleries, and fun gift/head shops.

It's also a short drive from some really scenic mountain hiking trails.

Would recommend to friends looking to get away from the city for a spell.

Thanks!
