Overview

Catskills House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Welcome to Brook Cottage in Woodstock!

Your Woodstock “home away from home” is ideally located on a shared and secluded property at the end of a private lane, yet walking distance to the heart of the quaint and artsy village of Woodstock. You can walk to restaurants, cafes, galleries, boutiques, theaters and clubs ~ or just stay home and relax in front of a cozy fire in your living room gas fireplace with an exposed stone chimney, cathedral ceiling with skylights, and 2-story north-light windows with mountain views! Or you can snuggle by a fire in the cast-iron gas stove in the sunny south-facing kitchen/dining/TV room with a wall of glass overlooking a blue stone patio (with a gas grill and outdoor dining table), spacious lawn and year-round stream that flows through the back of the property and right past the cottage!

You can also enjoy views of the stream from the master bedroom in the upstairs sleeping loft (which features a sitting area, interior balcony overlooking the great room, and queen bed under a triangular-shaped window and ceiling skylights), as well as the downstairs second bedroom with a full bed and east-facing windows.

Prepare snacks and meals in your newly-remodeled and fully-equipped country kitchen with marble countertops, new appliances, and an ample pantry stocked with basic condiments.

Brook Cottage occupies the east wing of an authentic 1928 artist’s residence/studio that has been lovingly restored to include state-of-the-art systems, high-end appliances, and modern amenities, while still retaining it’s authentic character and charm. Amenities include a high-efficiency washer/dryer, dishwasher, WIFI, cable TV with DVD and streaming Netflix, AC, ceiling fans, remote controlled skylights with black-out shades, gas grill and thermostat-controlled gas fireplace and fire stove. An architect- designed and sound-proof wall separates Brook Cottage from the west wing of the building, which is occupied by Brook Cottage Too (property #4230126), a brand new and smaller vacation home.

Although Brook Cottage and Brook Cottage Too are totally separate and independent semi-detached rentals (with entrances and private patios on different sides of the building), which are each ideally suited for romantic getaways and personal retreats, they may also be rented together by groups of friends or extended family members who want to be together while still maintaining their own private spaces. Please note that a 10% discount off the rental rate for both applies when Brook Cottage and Brook Cottage Too are jointly rented by one party.

NO CAR NECESSARY: Brook Cottage is easy walking distance to everything that Woodstock has to offer: restaurants, cafes, galleries, boutiques, theaters, clubs, live music, hiking trails, swimming holes, etc. In other words, you don't need a car! In fact, you can ride the Adirondack Trailways bus from NYC or NJ and arrive at the Woodstock Village Green (just a few blocks from your Brook Cottage) in just two hours!

The cottage was lovely. Very clean and quiet. The backyard is great. Close to downtown but also feels secluded. Can't wait to go again!

Charming and wonderful place to stay. Everything was clean and just the way it was pictured. We saw deer every day in the creek out back....one morning mom and baby fawn. Woodstock is a great place to walk around. Visit the shops, waterfalls and beautiful mountains. Really enjoyed breakfast at Oriole 9!!! Hope to be back soon. Autumn would be fantastic.......

perfect

  • 5 of 5

my wife and dog and myself spent an amazing month in this cottage. it is situated at the end of a lane directly off of tinker street. it is a large piece of green property with a bucolic stream, and you'd never know main st woodstock is literally 5 minutes down the lane and to the right. in a very true sense, it encompasses the best of both worlds - country peace and quiet and privacy, yet a cup of coffee and a nice meal is literally such an easy walk out the front door. the property backs up onto the comeau property, a ridiculously gorgeous 77 acre public property that has a beautiful two mile walking loop that hugs the beautiful saw mill stream. the cottage is well appointed with just the right amount of charm and comfort and none of the sense of many other places we’ve stayed in where you are uber-aware that you are in someone else's home - there is not one personal belonging in the home, just tastefully choiced things you will need for your stay. the property manager for brook stream is judy atwood who could not be more lovely to deal with... communication is quick and easy and she lives a five minute drive away, so all was dealt with promptly, and all was negotiated kindly and smartly from cleaning to lawn mowing to how does the tv work. i cannot recommend her or this property more and the best thing about this month was knowing we found such a convenient peaceful place we will return to again and again.

Perfect 11!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cottage was all it was portrayed to be and more. Very clean and tastefully decorated, it made us feel right at home. The location is very unique. It's an easy stroll to all of the restaurants and shops in town yet when you turn down the lane to the house, it's like being in a very private and secluded place. The view of the brook behind the house was fabulous and our dog loved the large yard. Chelsea and Judy were a joy to deal with. Would definitely repeat this experience...maybe without the rain. But if weather confines you, this is a beautiful place to be. Thanks again!

Absolutely incredible!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here for 3 days to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and we couldn't have dreamed of somewhere better. The house is GORGEOUS; the decor is adorable, the fireplace is cozy, and the backyard is soothing. We were looking to stay at a cabin in the woods, and although Woodstock was not really woodsy, being that we could just walk into town, but the house had a very cabin feel inside and we loved it so much.

We also appreciated that despite it being a cabin, the place was very high tech. Patricia showed us how to use the remote to control the high ceiling windows, there's WIFI, and a TV with basic cable and netflix, so everything was very easy to use. There were lots of amenities to the house such as the bathroom basics, and a walk in cupboard with dishes, coffee, lots of tea (if you're a fan like me, this is a big plus!), condiments, and cookware (including an outdoor grill) so if you prefer not to eat outside all day, it's incredibly accommodating.

This cottage is also incredibly romantic if you're looking to get away with a significant other for a while. My boyfriend and I would spend our time drinking coffee in the backyard while watching the stream in the back, hanging by the fireplace in the afternoon, and looking at the stars in the evening, all things we can't really do in the city with roommates and pets running around!

We did spend some time walking around Woodstock and we fell in love with the town as much as we did with the Cottage. There's lots of thrift shops with nifty items you can buy (I bought a ring made out of a silver spoon, which now matches my bracelet made from a silver fork!), friendly people to talk to, and the food around there is incredible. Two places we highly recommend, which the whole town pretty much does as well, are The Garden and New World Home Cooking. The Garden makes incredible vegan dishes and my boyfriend and I got to play chess while we waited for our food which made us pretty content (I "graciously" lost). New World Home Cooking lives up to its reviews. We ordered everything from two orders of chicken wings, tacos, fish platters, and Sangria and everything was delicious. We enjoyed it so much we ate there again the next night.

My boyfriend and I can't stop raving about the house and we're already trying to get some friends together to visit again. Thank you for making this anniversary our best one yet!!!!!!!!!!

Wonderful Rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at this house rental! The cottage was ideally situated, walking distance to town but quiet, as it is set back from the street. It is beautifully decorated and is very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need. It's a perfect place for two people and would also work well for four people. We hope to get back there soon!

Woodstock is a historic and thriving arts community ideally located in the foothills of the Catskill Mountain Park, halfway between the spectacular high peaks to the west and the Hudson River valley to the east. You can explore the surrounding mountains by car or on foot/bike via scenic drives or an extensive network of hiking trails ~ many of which follow pristine mountain streams with waterfalls.

Discover why the natural beauty of this area inspired the 19th century romantic art movement known as the Hudson River School with it’s oversize panoramic landscape paintings, and why it has attracted such visionaries as the founders of the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony (the oldest operating arts + crafts colony in America), Maverick Concerts (the longest-running summer music festival), the Woodstock Sound-Outs of the 1960s, and of course the 1969 Woodstock Festival of Music + Art.

Woodstock continues to be a haven for artists, musicians, writers and spiritual seekers, as evidenced by the many galleries, studios, music venues, and monasteries in the region. As such, it is widely considered the cultural hub of the area.
