Woodstock Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom,2.5 Bath Cottage in the heart of Woodstock

WALK TO EVERYTHING IN THE VILLAGE FROM THIS NEWLY RENOVATED COTTAGE WITH GORGEOUS VIEWS! Located in the center of the village, this newly renovated cottage is open, cozy, and perfect for a Woodstock vacation or weekend getaway. Convenience is the name of the game here. No vehicle is necessary. It is a short walk to the Trailways bus stop, restaurants, shops, art galleries, and hiking… and a stone’s throw away from swimming in the Sawkill Creek. This rental is blessed with beautiful views of the Sawkill Creek and Tannery Brook.

The fully equipped kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. The dining area has French doors that overlook the patio and Sawkill Creek. The living room is nicely furnished and has a flat screen TV over the electric fireplace. The master bedroom, with French doors providing a lovely view of the creek, is complete with a queen size bed, dressing room, flat screen TV and full private tiled bath. The second floor has a loft equipped with a futon, hardwood flooring, TV, and more beautiful views of the creek and brook. Also located on the second floor is a second bedroom. This bedroom has a queen size bed, flat screen TV, and full private tiled bath.

This cottage has 4 cable flat screen TV's, high speed internet, washer/dryer, central AC with air exchanger and air purifier, tiled floors in kitchen and living area, covered patio and more. Bed linens and towels are provided.

You can fish in the Sawkill Creek or if you want to explore the area, you can fish or go “tubing” in the Esopus Creek in Phoenicia, ride up to Hunter Mountain for one of their festivals, take in a horse show at HITS in Saugerties, ski at Bellayre, Windham or Hunter Mountains, or visit the shopping malls in Kingston. They are all within a short driving distance.

While we are not able to claim handicap accessibility, the main living area, kitchen, master bedroom and 1.5 baths are all located on the first floor. The master bath has a large walk in shower with a built in granite seat. Doorways are 36” wide and would have no trouble accommodating a walker. Smoke and Pet free cottage.

This home is impeccably cared for and is well designed for a family.

  • 5 of 5

Roberta and Bob have thought of every detail to make you feel welcomed and at home. The homemade cookies were a touching welcome and very delicious! The proximity to the Woodstock village and the fun swimming hole in the creek behind the house made for a stay of simple and relaxing pleasures. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning.

a charming home in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our 2 small boys, had a fantastic time! the creek and swimming hole are directly behind the house, and provided hours upon hours of entertainment for the little ones.

As others have noted, you can easily walk to the main street in (even my 2.5 year old never needed a stroller) for shopping and dining options. we might have used our twice during the whole week, and only because we were headed on day trips out of town.

as for the home, it was spotless upon arrival (complete with a fresh batch of cookies!) and had everything you could want--a new bag of coffee, thoughtful toiletries (makeup remover wipes!) in the bathrooms, etc.

The upstairs is great for kids--there is one bedroom and full bath as well as an additional living space with a futon (great for a very little one to sleep on as lower to the ground). It made a perfect playroom!

I have stayed in several rental properties and can say that the detail and care that Bob & Roberta put into making their guests feel welcome and comfortable is definitely at a superior level. Thank you for a wonderful getaway from the ATX heat!

As Fantastic as Everyone Says

  • 5 of 5

This property is as fantastic as everyone says. Despite being a stone's throw from downtown Woodstock, you feel like you are really out in nature. The swimming hole is right there. There is a gorgeous view of it from the master bedroom. We had the swimming hole virtually to ourselves in the mornings and then, as a local attraction, it would fill up as the day went on. We enjoyed both options. Our 4-year-old son made friends with other kids in the afternoons. (Rubber water shoes, btw, are a good idea for navigating the stones in the swimming hole.) The cottage itself is beautifully appointed and the owners have done everything to assure that their visitors are comfortable or even pampered. It's especially great for people who like to cook, with a super well-equipped kitchen and a gas grill out on the patio. We ate out on the patio facing the creek every evening. Our original plan was also to do some touring in the area. But our son loved being on the property so much, he didn't want to leave.

Many thanks for everything!

Woodstock wonderland

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4, two adults, two children had a wonderful time. The river/stream in the back made the stay for our active son. The quick block walk to town was perfect for us all, yet the location of house felt very cozy and remote-ish. The house itself was a delight. Kitchen was great and had everything you would need. We ate all our dinners at home. Spectacularly clean and updated. The only issue the kids had was we were not able to work the living room tv. Waaah! We were able to play dvd's, which they had a varied selection of.

We are looking forward to returning during all the seasons.

Owner's Response: When you play a DVD the TV automatically switches to the HDMI source for a DVD. When you finish watching the DVD you have to manually switch back to the HDMI source for the TV. The HDMI source for the TV and DVD are posted on the cable box. I will post better instructions on how to change the HDMI source.

Wonderful, relaxing and great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i were in the area to visit our daughter who was working at a camp and had a couple of days off. This house was the perfect retreat for the three of us for the weekend. Wonderful location in several ways - it is adjacent to a lovely creek and swim hole; it is a very quiet location; and it is a short walk to central Woodstock stores, restaurants and groceries. Really could not have asked for a better location.

We only had three days in the area and the first two kept us somewhat in the house with heavy rain. We really appreciated the movies (DVDs) that were available at the house to have a quiet evening inside with our daughter.

Our only regret is that we couldn't take the time for several more days and really enjoy all the house has to office - location, amenities, etc.

Stunning home in the heart of Woodstock!

  • 5 of 5

This is an unbelievably beautiful home that made our stay in Woodstock unforgettable. Upon arrival, we were greeted with homemade cookies and a lovely note from the owners. The home was impeccable: extremely clean, in mint condition, and included anything and everything you could need for your stay. The kitchen was fully stocked with every utensil, piece of equipment, pot and pan you could possibly need. The relaxing porch was perfect for grilling out, enjoying a morning cup of coffee, or watching our toddlers play in the yard. The home was also within walking distance to the swimming hole (literally down the bank and in your backyard!), and adorable downtown Woodstock.

We had a perfect stay here, and would not hesitate to rent this home again. We are already planning our next trip to Woodstock!
