About Owner: Mindy Pickard
My name is Mindy Pickard. My husband Gregory and I have had a weekend house in the Hudson Valley since 1987. We love the area, especially Woodstock and Saugerties. Our son, Clayton, played soccer with the local rec team so we've been able to get to know many of the lucky people that live upstate year round. We live in NYC during the week. I am an acupuncturist and my husband is a songwriter and conceptual artist. We have 2 dogs: Connor and Athena. They love the area because they can go off-leash hiking every weekend!
Owner: Mindy Pickard purchased this House in 2008
Why Owner: Mindy Pickard chose Saugerties
We wanted to be close to Platte Clove Road for the wonderful hiking. Also, we fell in love with the house and the cute out-buildings on the property. I feel the most beautiful elements of the house are the soaring, artist-made windows. They are just spectacular. The original owner was a woodworking enthusiast and he made the window frames, the storm windows and the screens. I also love the beams in the living room and the stone wall behind the wood burning stove.
What makes this House unique
The house has tons of light due to the propensity of windows and is surrounded by beautiful trees and gardens. During the summer season the vegetable garden is like a "secret garden" with all the old roses cascading up and around the fence and gates. We are also adjacent to hundreds of acres of NY State land, so there is hiking, cross country skiing and even waterfalls! The house is very private, on 4 acres, but only 8 to 10 minutes to both Woodstock and Saugerties villages.

Its a GEM!
The owners are pleasant and easy to work with. I've rented many places in the Woodstock area over the years- by far this property is the best! We were greeted with a delicious bottle of red wine left on the counter. Super clean house - excellent kitchen.. (Mindy left some tomatoes from the garden and invited us to pick some more as needed!) the grounds are vast and hug a forest. Extremely private place. And for me the best and a first... Mindy had two dog bowls prepared for my pup along with a bag of treats and a special towel to use if he got wet. I highly recommend this place for a couple or a family of 4 and definitely for anyone with a dog. Thanks again to Mindy!
Thank you so much for the kind words! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you noticed all the little extras that we get a kick out of doing! You were great guests and we hope to host you again soon!
This was our 4th time renting this cabin.
It’s always been a warm restful retreat close to town and other attractions in the area. Mindy has always been a great host.
Favorite place in Woodstock
This was our second time staying in Mindy’s home. We’ve rented several houses in the area and hers is the only one we’ve rented more than once. The house is charming and comfortable and her property is gorgeous. Mindy is a responsive and gracious host who makes sure her guests have everything they need. It’s a great place for relaxing and unplugging. Will definitely stay there again.
Thanks so much for the kind words! You are terrific guests as well!
Charming Coutry Style cabin. Pet friendly with a very relaxing environment
This was our second time here and I have to say that we enjoyed our stay here even more this time. Our dog loved the back yard and mountain air. We had such a relaxing time in the private yard, that it was hard to go out to the other local attractions. Overall, the hosts have always been very warm and accommodating. We look forward to renting again.
Thank you so much for the kind words! You and your family are the perfects guests. We hope you come back soon.
We stayed in this charming cabin in mid-February. It was a lovely place to relax and recharge, and I'm sure it would be even better in the summer. We enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen, the great wood-burning stove, and all the light-filled rooms. Getting to and from shops and attractions was easy, too.
Thanks so much for the kind words about our house! You were great guests! Come back again!
Our home is 8 minutes to the center of Woodstock and 12 minutes to Saugerties Village. 40 minutes to all 3 ski resorts: Belleayre, Windham and Hunter Mountain. Adjacent to Catskill State Park land, with terrific hiking trails and waterfalls on hundreds of acres in our 'backyard'. 2 hours to NYC.
Woodstock is best known as the 'best small town in America' and is the name chosen for the famous music festival in '69. There are lots of art galleries, music clubs, restaurants, the Woodstock Film Festival, world-class hiking, skiing and more.
