Overview

About the property

Just 2 hours North of NYC & 10 min. to Woodstock NY

The Glenford House offers 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6-8. Private Hot Tub, outdoor fire pit, ping-pong table, fireplace, gas grill, deck with amazing views. Good cell phone reception and fast 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 four 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 private 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; 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.

Payment Terms: We offer our guests the option to split the rental amount into 2 payments. The first one (50% of the rental amount) reserves the property. The second payment (50% + the security deposit) is due 21 days before check-in date. We also offer 100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before the check-in date. 10% discount on stays of 7 nights or more!

About Deborah Osherow

I'm happily married to David and between us, we play Celtic music, practice yoga, and qi-gong, teach fencing, enjoy chess, ceramics, sculpture, cooking and spontaneous pot luck dinner parties. We've lived in the Catskills since 1987 and we love this area because there's such a strong sense of community and the beauty of the Catskills feeds our spirits! We love to outdo our guests expectations and provide an easy, relaxing get-away.

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!!

A fabulous time in winter. Bet even better in warmer weather because of local villages

  • 5 of 5

A cozy setup with lots of items to help your experience from the hot tub to the fireplace to the kitchen and accessories to the spectacular views. The owners are super attentive and accommodating. A great property and indoor distractions for kids.

Amazing winter vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic snowy week at the Glenford House. As a party of six heading to the Catskills for the Christmas break we had a lot of people and logistics to take care of, but Deborah and David could not have been more kind and helpful to us before, during and after our stay. Including coming out in sub-zero temperatures to shovel snow from around the house and driveway!

The house itself is very warm and comfortable, a great spot to stay in and cook dinner - the kitchen has everything you could need and more - or to sit around the fire and relax. And the hot tub downstairs is a major bonus!

Even though everything was under deep snow during our stay, there is a lot of space out back of the house to explore and it's easy to walk right out of the front door down to Kenozia Lake or to the Ashokan Reservoir. Would love to come back during the summer months as I'm sure it is beautiful out there!

A perfect vacation house for two families with kids

  • 5 of 5

This was a great experience. The house is lovely and the hosts put enormous effort into making our stay feel special. The views are lovely and the kitchen was well stocked.

I liked the ample space - we could find a comfy sofa or chair and read peacefully while girls played and others cooked.

The fireplace is great but I wish it was in more of a lounge area; it is located next to the kitchen and the dining table. A sofa or two might be nice there.

We had an awesome stay and highly recommend.

Fantastic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of six friends and we really enjoyed our stay here. The house was delightful and charming, as well as clean, spacious and well prepared for a group. Hot tub & ping pong were great features. Very satisfied overall and would recommend.

Glad to be back!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house for a long weekend with a group of friends. We came up here last year, and are looking forward to returning again next fall! The kitchen is one of the best I've ever seen in a rental house, and is capable of handling meals for a large group. Nothing beats making smores for dessert around the fire pit, and then taking a quick dip in the hot tub before bed. The deck is perfect for admiring the view with a good beer and good company (and maybe some knitting).
