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 May to October. Heating fee apply.

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

Beautiful, Well-Equipped Cabin in a Fantastic Setting

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at the Ville and its accompanying cottage (which is gorgeous, too!). We absolutely loved hanging out in the hot tub, lounging on the deck, and cooking in the beautiful and well-stocked kitchen. We were a group of 10 and felt very comfortable in the space, and made great use of the fireplace as the first night was chilly. This cabin strikes the perfect balance between cozy and airy. And the views are incredible! Susanna was very kind, communicative, and helpful. We would love to come back.

Great Space with a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two other couples just recently stayed at the Villa. Upon arrival to the home we found that is was extremely clean and well taken care of. It was stocked with everything we needed, even some firewood for the first night. Being so close to Woodstock we were able to easily spend the day exploring the surrounding areas and try a few of the great restaurant/bars. In addition to the multiple very large decks with great views, we made use of the hot tub every night and even had a warm enough weekend to use the grill for one of our dinners. All in all the place was perfect for what we were looking for - privacy with all the modern amenities that give the space a luxurious feel. The best part was dealing with Susanna who was fantastic in arranging everything! Thank you!

Gorgeous property, fun atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

This property is really beautiful. The huge fireplace in the living area is quite a show-stopper, as is the fully-stocked kitchen and the master bedroom. 8 of us stayed here over a long weekend, and made full use of the hot tub and gas grill. The big dining room table comfortably fits 8 adults, and is a perfect place to laugh and play board games all evening long. The house is stocked surprisingly well, I've rented houses before where obvious items were missing (such as trash bags, cooking utensils, paper towels), but this house had it all. I highly recommend this rental to any family. The fact that it's dog friendly made it great for our two pups to join us.

This really is a year round destination. In the summer they are swimming holes and local lakes to explore, in the fall we have the most beautiful foliage and hikes, in the winter months we are located near to NY's best Ski Resorts, Hunter, Belleayre and Windham, and in the spring the area is so green and vibrant. Annual events include the Ulster and Dutchess County fairs; the HITS Horse show; the Woodstock Film Festival; Concerts at the Woodstock Bear Theatre; the Garlic Festival; wine tastings; shows at BARD.
