Catskills House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom house has plenty of space for relaxing indoors and out

New for Summer 2016: All bedrooms will be air-conditioned!

Experience Woodstock, NY and the Catskill Mountains while staying at our lovely four-bedroom home. Located on nearly three-acres, Our Woodstock House offers both privacy and convenience. The Woodstock Green is just 2.5 miles away, yet from our home you'll hear the sound of the Sawkill River and the stream that bisects our land. Our Woodstock House can be a great spot for exploring the area -- nearby options include river tubing, hiking, skiing, shopping and wonderful dining, but you can also have a great time just relaxing at our home. You can swim in the pool (in season), soak in the hot tub, cook meals with friends, watch movies, listen to music, explore the outdoors or just enjoy the fresh air, all without leaving the property. Our home is designed to accommodate families -- we've got a stash of toys and games for kids, and you won't have to worry about lugging all the accessories that they require: we have a high chair, booster seat, gates, pack 'n play and more available.

We bought our home in Woodstock, NY after attending Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble several years in a row and falling in love with the area. Our Woodstock House is not just a vacation rental -- it's our family's retreat and we have set it up to be comfortable for our family and yours. The well-stocked kitchen is a joy to cook in, and the space is perfect for sharing with others. The kitchen table seats 8 adults easily, and we have a folding table and chairs for 6 more if you're hosting a crowd. There are two separate sitting areas, with comfortable couches for relaxing with friends. With the exception of the twin bed, all mattresses are new as of November 2011.

About Heather Cross

I'm a Brooklyn mom, writer, yogini and travel agent. Woodstock is a peaceful escape from the concrete jungle we live in.

Heather Cross purchased this house in 2011

Why Heather Cross chose Catskills

Our Brooklyn family wanted a place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and we just love Woodstock -- the people, the town, the vibe and the music. And the clean mountain air. When we were visiting potential properties my daughter called this one 'Paradise' and I'm inclined to agree.

What makes this house unique

We love this house because there is plenty of space for entertaining and enjoying one another, but also privacy with four separate bedrooms. It's close to town, but feels very private.

Great house - Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Our Woodstock House. It had everything we could ask for: amenities (pool, hot tub, wired for sound, fire pit), privacy (surrounded by dense forest and a peaceful stream), and proximity to town (less than 5 minutes from the main strip). The house itself was comfortable and homey and stocked with all the necessities. Best of all, it was very kid-friendly with toys, games, and books as well as safety precautions (fence around the pool). The owner was responsive and accommodating. We'd definitely book this spot again!

Friends weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience we have had at this house. We have stayed in houses before but this one house/hosts made us seem so welcomed and every detail was thought of. From the coffee machine, through to the outside Jacuzzi, to the Apple TV/Netflix and the children's playground outside everything was just perfect. Hard for us not to leave anything for improvements but this place just has it all. Just choose your right friends and take sometime off from everything, stare at the river below the house, watch a good movie on the Apple TV and you are all set to face life's challenges (or in our case, depart from good friends). Thank you.

This property was everything we could have wanted for a weekend getaway - it's cozy, spacious, natural light pouring in everywhere, and just as a whole - it's beautiful. There's something for everyone at this Woodstock home, whether it be an outdoor hot tub, sitting by the stream, grilling, or reading in the cozy sun room. You can tell that the owners put a lot of love and thought into this home. Thank you for everything Heather! We look forward to going back in the future.

I came up here for my birthday weekend with a group of friends. First impressions: the house is adorable! Truly a hidden gem. Driving up there we had no idea what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. The house was beautiful. Everything was very user friendly and comfortable. We made great use of the sound system in the house, as well as of the fire place in the living room. Our only suggestion would be to add a little bit more light in the sun room. We wanted to sit in there and play games and stuff but the light wasn't enough. We weren't too upset about it because we understood its a sun room, and a beautiful one at that. The kitchen was well stocked. We got some essentials on the way up but we didn't feel like we needed to buy every little condiment or spice because so much was provided. The beds were all comfortable, and the bathrooms were clean. We also appreciated the fact that so many toiletries were provided. All in all, we felt like we were home. We are definitely going to by booking this property again.

fab fall getaway!

  • 5 of 5

All 8 of us (plus pups) had a completely enjoyable time. The house was perfect for a group. Comfy beds, linens, towels, hot tub etc. Woodstock is such a great small town! Zip-lining at Hunter Mt was fantastic!!

My ONLY recommendation would be that the interior lighting (esp lamps) might be improved upon.

Thank you Heather!!
