Overview

Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description

Just 2 hours North of NYC & 5 miles from Woodstock NY-

The Glenford House offers 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6-8. Hot Tub, outdoor fire pit, ping-pong table, fireplace, gas grill, deck with amazing views. Good cell phone reception and wifi. Sorry, no pets.

Experience the serenity and beauty of the Catskills from our newly renovated home with views of the Ashokan Reservoir and Shawangunk Mountains. We designed The Glenford House to be a peaceful retreat with the rustic charm of a country cottage and modern amenities of city living. A place to enjoy slow and simple pleasures like cooking for loved ones in a light-drenched kitchen or reading books you've been meaning to for much too long.

Enjoy the quiet and privacy of the country, complete with swimming holes and hikes near by, while also having easy access to great restaurants, shops, bars and cafes, arts and music, and movies just ten minutes away in great towns like Woodstock, Phoenicia, Saugerties, and Kingston.

You’ll have an eat-in cook’s kitchen with five burner range, an airy living room with cathedral ceilings and a huge farm table, second floor master bedroom with adjacent room that doubles as a writing or yoga studio- with water views, two other lovely bedrooms- one first floor queen, and a second floor full sized bed with water views, two full bathrooms, one on each floor, a bright sun room with three walls of windows, TV room with basic cable (24 channels) plus Roku with Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, and Wii, and a two level deck/porch with a Weber Genesis grill and ping-pong table. Plus, ample windows and water and mountain views from almost every room imbue the house with a light and airy feeling. Also, relax and enjoy a newly installed hot tub on the lower patio.

Kitchen: Our eat-in cook's kitchen comes complete with a comfy breakfast nook looking out over the Ashokan, a five-burner gas stove with a double oven, dishwasher, a deep farm sink, and ample supplies. We love to cook, and we've filled the kitchen to the brim with everything from stainless steel and non-stick frying pans in a range of sizes, to specialty items like Le Crueset lasagna pans, a double boiler, pancake griddle, and a Keurig coffee maker (stocked with K-cups) alongside a french press and standard coffee maker, and a well-stocked pantry. And just outside the door is a Weber Genesis gas grill on the deck. We also supply you with a full kitchen inventory before you arrive for planning purposes.

Entertainment: Our TV room comes with a flat-screen television with cable; Roku with access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime; DVD player and video library; and Wii. We also have games, many books, and a ping-pong table.

Outdoor Activities: If you like to get outside, it’s hard to imagine a better place to do it. In the winter, enjoy great skiing and snowboarding with Hunter, Belleayre, and Windham just 25 to 45 minutes away. For cross-country skiers, the Mountain Trails cross country ski center, with a network of maintained trails, is also easily accessible. Go swimming in the many local swimming holes, tubing down the Esopus, hiking in the Catskills state parks, climbing in the Gunks, fishing in the reservoir, zip-lining at Hunter Mountain—the list goes on and it’s all close. And if you’re a cyclist, we’re happy to provide challenging routes full of rollers and hills or easy tours showcasing the extraordinary beauty of the region—you name it.

Discovering the Catskills: To help you get the most out of your stay, we've put together a guide to the region with favorite restaurants and things to do, maps to activities, places to get supplies, and suggested highlights of the area.

While we love dogs, we maintain a low allergen environment, and do not allow pets in our vacation rental.

About Deborah Osherow

We have lived in the Catskills since 1987 and raised two children here. We fell in love with the Catkills and and never left!

Deborah Osherow purchased this house in 2014

Why Deborah Osherow chose Woodstock

We have always admired the mesmerizing view of this property. It's on our route if we take the backroads into Woodstock. When it came up for sale, Deborah awoke one morning and 'knew' we had to buy it!

What makes this house unique

We were lucky enough to be able to purchase the property from Peter and Lisa fully furnished and with all the amenities. We love the modern/rustic style, its great location, and of course the awesome view of the Ashokan Reservoir and the mountains beyond.

Incredible home with incredible views!!

  • 5 of 5

We found the perfect home for a perfect family getaway. The home was just right for a break from the city. The vista is stunning and the home's peaceful setting gave complete respite. We loved the spacious, light-filled kitchen complete with all of the amenities of home and enjoyed dinners on the grill each night. Woodstock is very close with access to great restaurants, but we preferred to cook at home! Everything about this home was just right. The home met our expectations and more and the owners couldn't have been more accommodating. I would definitely recommend this home to a friend. We Loved our stay!!

Spiritually Renewing/Beautiful home and wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

My aunt booked this home for her 60th birthday celebration for herself and the 4 of us to have a "Woodstock weekend" away. She passed shortly before our trip and we decided to go anyway in her honor. This background information is important because Deborah was sincerely accommodating in communicating with us and offering her deepest sympathies. This home is absolutely beautiful, wonderful views, it was pristinely clean and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook and then some. It is a beautiful home and the owners put us at ease with arranging everything in a time of such sadness. We hope to be back again. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, you just found it :)

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this house over the July 4th weekend with another couple. The owners have thought of everything! The kitchen is very well stocked. Our friend, who is a former professional chef, made us amazing meals and he wanted for nothing in terms of cooking equipment. There were plenty of places for the 4 of us to relax around the house. The sun room is perfect for afternoon naps and the deck has everything for sun worshipers and those who need to be in the shade. We bought our meet from the amazing butcher, Fleisher's, and feasted on our farmers market bounty. We found that we didn't want to leave the house to do more active activities and that was fine with us. The view is beautiful and it was the perfect place for the 4 of us to rest, relax and reset.

Beautiful house, great property, great kitchen and wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house. The owner was super attentive during the entire booking process and always replied immediately to my questions. It was really an easy process. When we got to the house, it was very clean and well attended. It was exactly as we were expecting. The pictures on the site were very accurate. The bedrooms were a good size. We had 3 couples staying, and each couple had a toddler and the rooms were big enough for pack and plays. (The master bedroom didn't have blinds in the extra room- so if you want a baby to sleep there, something to keep in mind. They were very accommodating and included baby gates for the stairs both inside and out. The sunroom was super comfortable. We loved that the kitchen we fully stocked for cooking with tons of pans, pots, great knives, and every spice/ vinegar/ oil, you could think of. For couples who love to cook (us) this really made the trip! The BBQ worked great. It was a bit hot during our trip, so weren't able to take advantage of the great lawn. Our kids would have loved to run around down there and play. It was perfect for that and again, very well manicured, and taken care of. The fire pit and hot tub were great. (We did get to use on the last night!) All in all a wonderful experience. The owner was super attentive and even answered questions over text immediately (like where can we find a lighter for the candles) Thanks so much!

Absolutely beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

One of the most peaceful and restorative experiences that we have ever had. The views from the deck are simply amazing and nights around the campfire are something everyone should enjoy. The beds are super comfy and the sheets make you not want to get out of bed. Everything about our stay was great. We have used HomeAway for many years and this by far was one of the best times ever. Thanks so much to Deborah for making our vacation one of the most memorable of our lives.

Perfect escape to the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We truly experienced the tranquil retreat so accurately depicted in the description and beautifully captured in the photos.

The owners were exceptional in their details, making sure we had all the information needed for the house as well as what to do in the area. This allowed me, my husband and 2 young boys, to have a relaxed, worry free stay in the gorgeous home surrounded by breathtaking views of the reservoir and neighboring mountains. I highly recommend this house if you're looking for a quiet escape. My sons had plenty to keep them busy inside and out of the house. The home is open, cozy, clean and bright, exactly as seen in the photos. We cooked every night on the grill and sat by the fire we built in the fire pit outside. A charming home, we will definitely return. Thank you for the perfect escape, it was hard to leave!
