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.

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We (family of four; two young daughters) stayed here in August 2014 (don't let the review date fool you, it won't let me go that far back) and I just want to get my two cents in. My daughters are 9 and 6 now and they still talk about going back to our "Woodstock House." The pool is the centerpiece around which every day of our week stay was planned. The slide, the pool toys, the diving rock, the fact that it is heated, are all big pluses. They loved that pool. When we could lure them out they loved the swing set in the huge yard, they loved the toys and books in the house, they loved the sun room, they loved the coziness of the second bedroom, they loved bathing in the big jacuzzi tub. We loved it too, needless to say. The kitchen is fully-equipped and we did notice some ants but hey, it's the country, what do you expect? Honestly, we've gotten more ants here in Brooklyn. Less than 10 minutes to the awesome town of Woodstock and there was a partially-dried out river in the back that we spent many days walking up and down, collecting river rocks. I highly recommend this. Make it your own "Woodstock House."

Fabulous rental, everything young kids could want!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great getaway. Our kids loved the big yard, playing by the river and all of the great toys in the house. The house is comfortable and has everything you could want. We hope to visit again in the summer and use the pool.

Expensive for what it was

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at the house over Labor Day and were disappointed in the state of the house, the pool and the general upkeep of the property. It was the end of the season and maybe things had fallen into disrepair after a long summer, but we paid a lot of money to deal with stained sheets, ripped towels, ants in the kitchen and other bugs coming in through ways we could not identify. The front door was hard to lock, other doors were falling off their hinges and we couldn't control the thermostats for most of the week. We definitely overpaid for our stay and did not think the listing was accurate to what we experienced.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that you were unhappy during your stay. We work hard to make sure that our house is comfortable and as expected for all guests. We ask renters to report any issues to us within 24 hours of arrival so that we can address them as quickly as possible. We did hear from you mid-week during your stay and worked to resolve the issues as quickly as we could to the best of our ability. We sent the housekeeper over the morning after we received your evening email and she replaced the towel that had a hole in it and the set of sheets that weren't up to standards. This was our first season with central air and we had some kinks to work out with the controls. For the future, we will be allowing renters better control over the system. As far as ants/bugs go, we do have a regular pest control service that comes to the house, but being that it's a country house, it's hard to keep all the bugs away. We market our house as a family-friendly place to stay and that can result in some wear and tear throughout the season, so we appreciate renters letting us know anything that needs attention so we can address it promptly. The front door had swollen a bit int he humidity -- I apologize that it was hard to close. It seems that a previous renter had broken a closet door near the entryway, which has now been repaired. There were no other door problems at the house that I was able to find.

Lovely family home, clean, wonderful for kids

  • 4 of 5

Heather was a great hostess and really went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. Positives were the toys for the kids, the hot tub, the location, the quick response to complaints that the pool needed to be cleaned, great seating by the pool. Things to improve: it is very very dark in the sunroom at night, the refrigerator needs to be updated, it hums constantly and has no ice maker. The septic tank backed up if we ran multiple loads of laundry and that created a smell.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a nice time and thank you for the feedback. Thanks to the feedback from you and other guests we are constantly making improvements at the house. We are planning to install additional lighting in the sun room next weekend. This is the first I've heard about the fridge and I'll definitely investigate. It's not an old fridge (we replaced it 2-3 years ago). Same with the septic issue -- we had a brand new system installed last fall, so that shouldn't be happening -- but thanks for the heads up, I'll look into that as well. 9/29/16 update: I just wanted to let you know that the fridge has been fixed (there was ice buildup on the fan which was causing the noise). We also realized that the dimmers on the sun room lights might be the reason it seems dark out there -- I will add a note to our home instruction book alerting guests that many lights are on dimmers.

Best house we ever rented

  • 5 of 5

This house is full of wonderful surprises. The entertainment equipment is extensive and up-to-date. There are binders of DVDs in one of the downstairs bedrooms. The air conditioning works, both the central a/c downstairs and the window units upstairs. The upstairs bathroom is worth the visit alone. We had 6 people and there was plenty of hot water. The pool and hot tub, we had so much fun in the pool and even managed to get the grand kids to relax in the hot tub. The back living room has comfy chairs and sofas for lounging and watching tv with a wrap around view of the woods and pool. You are surrounded by woods with just the slightest glimpse of neighboring house. Any questions we had about the house were answered within an hour by the owner. I highly recommend this house.
