Overview

About the property

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!

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

This was an ethereal trip for us. This house has breathtaking panoramic views. The paintings, books, music, decor were a perfect fit. My husband, puppy and I spent the vast majority of our time reading, drawing and listening to music out on the deck. The kitchen is fantastic and has everything you need. We cooked numerous meals everyday. Chelsea and Judy were very welcoming; we felt like we were in good hands. We will be back!

Awesome views, great property

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property. The views from here are breathtaking. Very well maintained. Loved it.

Only minor point, it has two full bathrooms but only one has a shower. Some scheduling was required there, but I would come back and stay here anytime!

Stunning property - even with bad weather!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the Eagle's Nest in early May as a surprise for my girlfriend's birthday. We stayed here with 3 friends. The views from the house and porch are exactly as seen in photos - absolutely stunning. The house and property have been taken care of very well and Judy was kind and helpful. If you're a fan of unique living spaces and a cozy vibe, this is a perfect place to stay. The interior of the house has plenty of charm and character, as well as an abundance of good reading to spend an hour in the upstairs reading nook (my favorite spot). We had rainy weather for the most part and ended up inside cooking and playing games. On Sunday morning the clouds cleared and we had coffee out on the porch and got to experience the place in its full glory - truly a little paradise up in the mountains. Book this if you can - you won't regret it.

Great views, spacious, close to trails and town

  • 5 of 5

Definitely recommend it! We had some much needed relaxing and fun family time at this lovely place. We enjoyed the views, the spacious place and the hikes near by. The town had some really nice places to eat as well.
