About Christine Barker

I live in New York but grew up in Canada and Bermuda, two wildly different climates! When it comes to property I tend to prefer the extremes....extreme country, or extreme city, and that's one of the things I love about Woodstock. It's less than two hours from New York City, but it's a million miles away with respect to it's ambiance, culture and attitude. Woodstock is a fabulous combination of getting away from it all while still having plenty to do.

Why Christine Barker chose Woodstock

While the eastern side of the Hudson River valley tends toward rolling topography historically suitable for farmland, thanks to the Catskill mountain range, on our side we enjoy skiing, hiking, rock climbing and delicious mountain views.

The unique village of Woodstock retains the same quirkiness that attracted the likes of Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin and ultimately the infamous Woodstock music festival, garnering it the title of the 'most famous small town in America'. The pristine beauty of the surroundings inevitably grew an avid following from New York City, so a sophisticated but casual community has evolved. The Town of Woodstock proudly bears the title 'colony of the arts'. There are music concerts, theatre, art galleries, and film festivals along with farm festivals.

Each season is as spectacular as the next. The summer is lush and beautiful, and people of all ages enjoy frolicking in the areas many streams and swimming holes, which obviously also afford opportunities for those who enjoy fishing. There is a beautiful golf course golf in Woodstock (and many other local courses), a tennis center in Saugerties (15 minutes away), hiking and rock climbing, as a start.

The fall is absolutely spectacular, the foliage can be outrageous, the air cool and refreshing. When winter hits, there's downhill and cross country skiing, snow shoeing....or just relaxing in front of the fire and taking in the beautiful snowy views isn't too bad either. The fresh air and beautiful light that spring brings is absolutely invigorating.

The famous luxury brand (no really....Gucci, Dolce Gabana etc) outlets at Harriman are on the way from New York City, and just 45 minutes from the house.

If all the activities, shopping and dining activities aren't enough, there's many spas to choose from as well, ranging from world class to small and focused.

Whatever season, whatever your bend, whatever the age...there is something for everyone.

What makes this house unique

Salt Water Pool! No nasty chemicals. Available in season mid May to mid October. Heating fee applies. Opening/closing dates vary so check before booking.

Luxury spa hot tub can accommodate 6 adults, with lounger. Brand new in 2015.

Susanna was very helpful, the house was super nice and clean. We had a great time and we'll probably come back when summer is showing up to use the swimming pool!

Stunning property great care takers

I recently stayed at this house with my wife and my young son it was in a beautiful area with a beautiful view. The house itself was absolutely stunning, and the service from the caretaker was top notch. If we had any issues or even just needed to know where to order a pizza from, the caretaker provided me with anything I needed

Blissful Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Imagine the joy of a beautiful birthday celebration at Serenity Villa! I was lucky that was mine. This expansive, atmospheric, well-equipped mountain hideaway was perfect for our small group who wanted to relax and enjoy each other's company in the privacy of our own home. Some high points include the massive double-sided stone fireplace; open kitchen perfect for socializing; unobstructed mountain views from the top deck and the master suite (!); private country road for quiet nature walks; and all this under 5 minutes from the center of the universe (Woodstock). This home makes a fine choice no matter which season!

what an amazing house, we were two adults and our two dogs. This house it all, incredible decks with spectacular views to a great spa and pool. The interior of this amazing house couldn't have been any better, the kitchen was great as was the master bedroom and bath. We will definitely be back very soon.

Beautiful house in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

By far the best rental we've found in the Woodstock area. The house itself is even nicer than the picture, with stunning views of the Catskill mountains. It's on a private road and feels very secluded but you're only a short 5 minute drive from the town of Woodstock. The heated pool was awesome, our kids (ages 13 and 9) swam in it everyday and we enjoyed the hot tub. The kitchen is well-quipped and the manager, Susanna, was super helpful. Highly recommend.
