About the property

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

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, gate, 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. All beds are comfortable and in good condition and we provide all required linens and towels.

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.

House had all we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My family truly enjoyed all this home had to offer. We ranged in age from 5-82 and no one was disappointed. The pool and tiki bar provided hours of swimming fun - the hot tub was also a big hit. There was plenty to do on our rainy day too - the kids loved the wee, games, puzzles and various toys, and there was enough space to just hang out and relax if that was the choice. The kitchen had everything we needed to feed our large group and was spacious, open, and clean. The location was also pretty perfect - far enough away from town and major roads for peace and quiet, yet close enough to Woodstock to make trips in for eating and shopping quick and easy. So much to do and see - loved Opus 40 and dinner at Cucina was outstanding.

Great family fun

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer here. Our kids are now 5 and 3 and Heather's place is just perfect for them. They didn't want to leave and asked if we could stay longer next summer. I hope we can!

Magical, wonderful place in perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This is one my favorite places on earth and my review is long overdue. We have been coming to this house for about 6 years running now. The location is perfect - only 2 miles from the town of Woodstock, but far enough away from the fray. Also - once you are on the property, it is difficult to leave because everything is right there! The pool, hot tub and gentle stream behind the house. The house is spacious and comfortable at the same time. This year, they have made many little improvements. The property is well maintained and Heather is really responsive should you have a question about anything. Jump at the chance to stay here - you won't regret it!

Wonderful house - can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Heather's Woodstock house, even though the rain prevented us from using the hot tub and pool. We did get to use the fire pit outside on our one dry night. The beds were comfortable, we loved hanging out in the indoor porch, and town was a 5 min drive away. Our favorite details were the little tv installed over the giant jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom, and the well stocked board game closet. High point of our weekend was seeing a family of bears walk through the garden one night - totally magical! Highly recommend staying here!
