Charming compound comprised of two houses in the rolling green hills of Bearsville. 2 miles from Woodstock Village Green. There is a brand new heated, saltwater, in-ground 40 x 20 foot pool and brand new hot tub, and for the cooler months a toasty fireplace. Both houses are renovated in a relaxed lodge style. Please Note the guest house only rents out with the main house in the summer months. Unless it is a last min booking.

Woodsy open living room has a fireplace and plenty of seating. lots of little seating spots around the house for private time inside and out. There is a sun room to relax in that leads out onto a suntrap patio with a dining table. A favorite room is the dining room, like an old fashioned Captain's cabin wood-lined and super cozy for the best dinner parties, a room for passing the port and telling tall tales.

Sarah Hale purchased this lodge in 2011
Charm Charm Charm, Built by the neighboring farmer's family in 1937 for an emigre family from Germany. It has a woodsy feel with charming little details. When we first saw it it was the setting that grabbed us, it's not grand but super relaxed and now a little lux with the new bathrooms and kitchens and the addition of the new hot tub and heated saline pool. The Hamlet of Bearsville reminds me of where i went to school in Somerset, England, green hills and dark starry nights.
You can come and rejuvenate yourself in the relaxing compound, set in landscaped grounds surrounded by flowering apple and magnolia trees.
You are in the country with all delicious benefits,from the farm next door where you can walk over in the morning and buy your happy eggs, to swimming holes, hiking, tubing & trout fishing, yet close to everything you would need to have a relaxing time with art galleries, Zagat rated restaurants, a cute little village for a stroll and some shopping and the relaxed atmosphere of a cosmopolitan environment.
Great spot upstate in any season. Loved how well taken care of the house was and our host was fantastic. Highly recommended.
My husband and I escaped from the city to The Bearsville Retreat for a weekend and could not have been happier with the home. Everything was pristine, but cosy enough to feel like home. We enjoyed the hot tub, the fireplace, the super comfy bed and the gorgeous view out the LR window. Super close to everything you need and just far enough away. Was so fun pretending we lived there for 2 days ;) Communication with Sarah was excellent and we will absolutely be back!
We recently had the pleasure of spending a wonderful weekend at the Bearsville Retreat! We truly enjoyed everything about this totally private and tranquil setting. Both homes are well appointed, and the saline pool, and hot tub were great! Our dog had the best time running freely as well just strolling the grounds sniffing everything she could. We sincerely recommend this rental home to everyone, and look forward to another visit to Bearsville soon!. Owner Sarah was great with every aspect of this rental! Thanks for a great place and owner!
My wife and I (and our dog) came to Bearsville from NYC for our 1 year wedding anniversary. It was AMAZING. Since we are from the city we treasure peace and quite and that is what this place provides. Not only that it provided plenty of running room for Wilson, our dog, to stretch his legs. He even made friends with the cows in the pasture next door! The town of Woodstock is beautiful as well with plenty of art shops and some very good restaurants. The music scene is awesome too! We are 100% coming back!!
My girlfriend and I spent valentines day weekend with another couple and both of our dogs. The fenced in yard allowed our pups to play and run like crazy! We drove to Bellayre to ski for a day, came back to the house and warmed up by the fire and in the hot tub outside! The fireplace is amazing! The house was beautiful and super clean when we arrived. The kitchen is fully stocked- there was even a garlic press! :) We felt so cozy and comfortable and we can't wait to go back in the summer! Sarah was available for us as well and very friendly! We have rented houses from Air BnB and VRBO before and sometimes we are disappointed when we arrive. We were, however, not only thrilled when we arrived to see the home and space, but honestly blown away from how perfect it was.
My boyfriend treated me to a weekend getaway upstate. This property is just the place to go if you need some R&R. The house far exceeded my expectations. The decor is lovely. Sarah left very clear instructions and suggestions, which made our stay even better. I would love to stay here again in the summer, and would highly recommend this gorgeous retreat.
Perfect for all four seasons. Snowy & Cozy in winter, close to 3 ski resorts In autumn stunning leaf color, fresh in spring when all the apple and magnolia blossoms appear and summer is stellar by the 40x 20 pool.
The tree-ringed houses are in the peaceful hamlet of Bearsville. It is perfectly private with out being isolated, spend all day and night in the restful grounds or go into town for dinner or drinks.
No car needed if you want to come up from the city you can bike or walk to dinner and to the village - and the bus drops you in Bearsville with a short walk to the Retreat.
Comfortable, modern furnishings, art throughout the interiors. The property is set back from the road down a long driveway, next to a old-world farm. Fully fenced private property with gate great for kids and pets. Well-behaved pets considered.
