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.

Absolutely perfect Labor Day Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Came here with one other couple for a relaxing weekend out of NYC and could not have been more satisfied with the stay. We were welcomed by a nice note and delicious cookies which not one remained when we left. The house had absolutely everything you could need from kitchen necessities to board games even bathroom supplies such as travel size shampoo and conditioner. Everything in the house was very well organized and in impeccable condition with very detailed instructions and information regarding things in the house, nearby town, activities etc.

The swimming hole and creek in the backyard were perfect for relaxing and provided a beautiful backdrop to our outdoor meals while we grilled. We were even visited by a mother and baby deer grazing down by the water. The hiking trails within driving distance (we did Huckleberry Point) were a great daytime activity offering stunning views of the mountains and great spot for a picnic lunch. The town is walking distance with CVS less then 5 minutes from the house for miscellaneous items and plenty of shops and restaurants to explore. We had dinner at Cucina which was right in town and was a terrific modern Italian restaurant and perfect way to end the weekend.

We absolutely will recommend this place to others and hope to come back many times in the future, whether summer, spring, fall, or winter.

Comfortable home on river, within walking distance to town, has every updated amenity.

  • 5 of 5

Chose this rental, because it had 2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths & 2 living spaces, on the river within walking distance to town. Had no idea how very comfortable it actually was, from the gracious arrival note & delicious cookies, information on anything we could possibly ever need, to the very updated appliances and well stocked kitchen.

We enjoyed eating some of our meals on the beautiful patio overlooking the river. Even used the grill.

Arrived late Friday, needed to eat where there was space for all of us & hi chair with no wait. Pizza place right across the road from us was perfect and very good. When I emailed Robert with questions, he responded promptly. At one point, when I mentioned, we were bringing a baby, he graciously offered the use of their high chair and pak n play. That certainly simplified packing issues for us. Just want to mention, Bob, there was everything but Kleenex in the house. You and Roberta ate wonderful hosts. We definitely recommend your proeerperty, & will book it upon our return to Woodstock.

Enjoyed a delicious brunch at Oriole 9. The menu is very interesting and unusual. Highly recommend the French Toast, Kale and Eggs, and Artichoke stuffed with truffled scrambled eggs. Coffee is great!

Definitely take a trip to the Smokehouse in Sagerties. Never knew there that many different varieties of sausage. Their meats looked very nice. Cute little German grocery, with delicious black bread with raisins! Head to Stuart's to purchase some ice cream to bring back with you for dessert or snacking.

Woodstock meats, right across the street, is a real find. A great meat market, a deli, and a grocery that sells fresh produce and eggs from local farmers. We tried a little something from each department, and enjoyed all.

Our real find was Nana's Creative Cafe on Mill Hill Rd, which is actually the Main Street if you take a right off our street. Everything is homemade. We got the breakfast egg sandwiches to go. When we saw the pastries, we couldn't resist. Great coffee! Definitely don't miss this gem!

Perfect Holiday House in beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days in this beautiful cottage. Location wise it is perfect - easy walking distance to the village and restaurants and right beside the swimming hole. Weather was very warm when we were there so the creek was needed. Internally the house is beautifully finished and very clean. Kitchen had every utensil you could need and there is also an excellent selection of family dvds. Best things though were the very thoughtful extras - shampoo, conditioner, make up wipes etc and a lovely plate of home made cookies, coffee and welcome card. Robert and Roberta you have created a gem of a place!

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.

Austin, TX

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!
