Glenford House Rental Photos and Description

3-BR, 2-BA handcrafted home w/terraced gardens + worldclass view

Discover the peace and beauty of your own secluded Arts + Crafts-style house perched on the southern ridge of Ohayo Mountain with an expansive (180 degree) view of the Ashokan Reservoir surrounded by mountains. Watch the sun rise above the Hudson River Valley and set behind the high peaks of the Catskill Mountains (and see the colors reflected not only in the clouds above, but also in the water below). On a clear day, you can see the Mohonk tower in the Shawangunk range due south. On a cloudy day, the formations drift past you like passing sailing ships!

This idyllic Woodstock retreat started out as a rustic mountain cabin with a large stone fireplace and exposed chimney. Since then it has been expanded and updated by a master stone mason and carpenter to include two second floor bedroom wings (each accessed by separate stairways) with cathedral ceilings, oversize picture windows, and glass doors that open onto private balconies. The first floor “great room” consists of a country kitchen with a breakfast bar/island, a living room with a free-standing cast-iron fire stove (as well as the original fireplace), and a dining area with sliding glass doors that open onto a spacious railed, multi-level deck with steps down to a stone patio that wraps around the house and descends partway down the mountain in a series of terraced gardens. In addition there’s a TV/music room with an old-time upright piano and large flat screen TV, and a smaller guest bedroom opposite the first floor bathroom with a vintage tub and porcelain sink. The upstairs bathroom is tiled in cobalt blue, and features a large walk-in shower with a built-in tiled bench. A landing at the top of the east-wing stairway features a reading nook with a built-in cushioned bench and bookcase. There are examples of artistic craftsmanship in the woodwork, much of which is shaped/carved or inlaid; the stonework, which blends natural living rock formations with dry-laid meandering walls, steps, pathways and patios; and the gardens of flowering shrubs, vines, exotic trees and perennials. As charming as the house and grounds are, the real attraction is the breathtaking unobstructed view, which is visible from every room of the house and every patio, porch, deck, terrace and lookout on the property. In fact, you can even relax in a rustic plunge pool (12 ft. in diameter and 4 ft deep) that is built into an escarpment of rock on the far edge of the patio and enjoy the view from there!

Fabulous house with breathtaking views, private and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to spend the last week of September here and it didn't disappoint, lovely home, well equipped and beautifully appointed- outdoor spaces were wonderful and the views breathtaking. The house had all the modern amenities that you'd want or need. Nearby Woodstock was wonderful with great shopping and restaurants. The hiking in the area is terrific- lots of choices- and great towns like Rhinebeck and Kingston are great day trips. Judy was welcoming, and helpful with all our needs.

A wonderful week, all around, but the best part was without a doubt the stunning house and setting.

I can only express the stay at the property as excellent and a joy beyond expectations in that the house was so interesting and beautiful. I would urge anyone that is looking for a view and total tranquility to look into this spot to relax and get away from it all. There are plenty of places to go and shopping if needed in the area and I strongly suggest staying at this location. A complete 100% beauty.

New York

The perfect place to unwind from the city

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to spend the whole month of August at Eagle's Nest, and could not have been happier with our choice. The view is incredible - not at all exaggerated by trick photography - and enjoyable from all bedrooms and balconies. I spent most of the time out on the main balcony, with a sunny or a shady seating option available at any time of day. While NYC had a heatwave, we were enjoying cool breezes, with open windows and ceiling fans enough to keep the house cool. The pool is cold, but lovely for a hot day's dip. There's plenty of wildlife too - squirrels and chipmunks, bunnies, groundhogs and even the local bears were a treat for the kids to see - they're not too comfortable around humans so scampered away readily enough. The management, cleaning staff and owner were all a delight to work with. We can't wait to return to enjoy it in another season too.

Breath taking

  • 5 of 5

Well,where do I begin, we just rented this amazing house . The views were magnificent as was the house, we had our two dogs with us and they had a wonderful time. Patricia was great, very attentive and professional, she would call/text us to make sure we had everything we needed, which was greatly appreciated. We will definitely rent this house again and again.

The house is stunning and the perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We love Woodstock, and Eagle's Nest was the perfect place to escape to. The view is stunning, the property and house are beautiful - and Patricia was amazing greeting us and making sure we were set with anything we needed to know about the house. Her communication was great throughout our stay. We were there for a full week and had an incredible time. The perfect place to unwind and relax - we never wanted to leave the property.

All around amazing experience. Highly recommend.

Million dollar views

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation rental house and we couldn't be happier. The entire weekend was perfect, we were met by Patricia at the house who couldn't have been friendlier. We were assured anything we might need was just a phone call away but the house had everything one would need. House is as amazing as the location, not cookie cutter cold impersonal house here at all. House was spotless when we arrived. Tons of personality, quirky with unique and creative architecture everywhere, warm and welcoming with plenty of space. From our dealings with Chelsea and Patricia, to the house, its location and the experience overall, including the town of Woodstock right down the road, this was a 10 of 10 experience and we will be back. Only negative we experienced was the inability to explore the area because no one wanted to leave the house ! Not such a bad problem to have.
