Private and quiet, set way back on a teeny dirt road with virtually no traffic, this perfectly clean and tidy home has everything one needs to feel comfortable, yet its charm, character, and setting give the distinct and welcome feeling of getting away from it all in the country. This little treasure is just the right size for a happy couple, but it also has a fantastic layout for a larger group. Giant screened in porch, lovely patios, stone pillars and stone steps, with a gorgeous in-ground saline pool, stream, and paths around the all organic grounds. All this creates a setting that is magical and ever so easy on the eyes. The back yard is also completely fenced in, to provide extra security for children and pets. Inside the house there are 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, Cathedral ceiling living room with fireplace, TV room closet houses an extra cot if needed, Wolf stove in cooks kitchen because you WILL want to cook, very open flow in the common areas, making it super easy to simply be together, while also having separate spaces so one can be alone if one chooses. There is one king, and two queen beds… with the addition of one cot which can turn the tv room into the 4th bedroom, w/ensuite bath, and gas fireplace. All lovely cotton sheets, ample pillows, linen quilts, pendelton wool blankets, and cotton bath and beach towels are provided, firewood and fire starter wood, TV, stereo with speakers inside and out, as well as a fully functioning kitchen with everything one needs to create any meal. While tucked away from it all in a perfectly private setting, the home is only 5 minutes to Woodstock village, 2 minutes, or a nice walk to the famous Bear Café Restaurant, Cub Market, the Little Bear Chinese restaurant, or the Bearsville Theatre. It is also super close to the Sunfrost Market & Juice bar, From the property, walk to the gorgeous Cooper Lake, skiing, hiking, and the list goes on and on.

About The Owner

I have had several successful careers before returning to Woodstock, my childhood home. After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, I worked as a painter and print-maker for several years. As a lark I became a fashion model, traveling world-wide for a few years, before transitioning to the other side of the camera. As a photographer I continued traveling the world, based in London and later in New York City. I was known for my dark fashion vision, innovative advertising campaigns, and for my unusual portraits of celebrities.

I then moved back to Woodstock and began a succession of house purchases; turning “sows ears into silk purses,” so to speak. I would take on vagrant and languishing buildings that “spoke to me,” and, as contractor, worked side by side with carpenters, plumbers, and electricians, learning hands-on the basics of house building. Several houses later I decided to get my real estate license. I live and work in Woodstock New York with my husband and a houseful of puppies.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose New York

We fell in love with the charm of this property, its setting really cannot be beat. Close to town and yet really feeling utter country, and private too. The house has a functionality to it that belies its modest size, and it is great for larger groups as much as for a couple looking for a romantic getaway. With the pool, screened porch, stone patio, meandering paths, stream... the place is really quite enchanting.

What makes this house unique

open plan kitchen dining and living with fireplace... great for a group being truly together while in various rooms, and yet the bedrooms are tucked away nicely for quiet time. Walk to restaurants and cub deli from the house, and walk to the gloriously beautiful Cooper Lake from the house.... both wonderful outings.

Comfortable Woodstock cottage retreat

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable fall stay in Woodstock in Rose Lane Cottage. The beds were very comfortable and the linens and towels were in good, new condition. The open fire in the living room made the evenings sociable and cozy, a separate "den" for TV meant the kids could be comfortable out of the bedroom and doing something different if they wanted.

The big garden was a nice place to sit and drink morning coffee and enjoy the peace and quiet. If it had been raining the large screened-in porch would have provided a good place to hang out "outside" but we didn't need it.

The pool is unheated and it was not warm enough for us to swim, the only aspect of the stay we were disappointed with.

An idyllic home nestled in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This is a cute and comfortable home nestled in an idyllic setting in the woods yet so close to Woodstock for its chilled out shopping and eating.

Nina and Chris are professional and gracious hosts who were on hand from the start to help with anything we needed and we can't thank them enough.

From swinging on the swing to firing up the great stereo system for radio Woodstock, to dinners on the protected porch, to chasing chipmunks in the trees and the many dips in the refreshing pool we had a wonderful week here which we didn't want to end!

Tranquil and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

In close proximity to Woodstock down a quiet dead end lane lies this fantastic cottage. Everything one needs for an escape is right here. Perfect for a couple or small family (with a dog), the home exudes quiet charm and comfort. Plenty of reading material exists, and the proximity to Cooper Lake provides the perfect opportunity for an early morning walk or evening stroll.

If you do not plan on cooking home every night, we highly recommend The Red Onion, Cucina, and The Bear Cafe. For breakfast, a stop at Bread Alone is a good choice. For lunch try Oriole 9.

We totally enjoyed our time spent here and intend on returning next year. Love this house, and the owners are absolutely wonderful. Thank you for a great stay!!

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We (3 couples) spent a great extended Memorial Day weekend. Things we loved: the house, front and back, and the location. House is large enough and laid out that folks are not on top of each other. The backyard/pool is nice and private, and was the place where we could all come and go to relax, listen to music, and watch the Chipmunks on the fence highway. Front porch is a fantastic place for pre-dinner drinks --- and to watch a crazy thunderstorm.

The house is the perfect spot - close enough to town, but far enough out to be able to relax. Things to do - go down to the nearby lake (we are all runners so we made it up and back over the hill), Saugerties, Hudson, and downtown Woodstock. Eat at the Bear Cafe, Cucina (50th birthday), and Red Onion.

All in all, great house, great location and great hosts.

Great location, excellent facilities and layout for family or friends

  • 5 of 5

A well maintained property with great one floor layout that can easily accommodate family or groups of friends. We spent a few days here with friends along with our 2 year old and our Springer Spaniel - all had a great time. The pool is a great size and layout means it gets sun almost all day and perfect for cooling off on hot summer days. The grill area is great for evening meals - the BBQ was used every night - or if you don't like the full nature experience - the front area is ideal for meal times as it has mesh meaning limited.

Bedrooms are all good sizes - two of which have air con units - and the two inside living areas means people can have their own space if needed.

Accurate description on the site and the photos do it justice. It was quiet and peaceful and a good break from city life.

Hosts were very responsive and helpful before our stay.
