Cat-lovers special! Lower price for this weekend and next week only ... includes feeding our 2 mostly-outdoor sweet sister cats.
Tranquil forest views. Lovely gardens. 5 min walk to great creek swim holes, 10 min walk to the quaint Village of Woodstock. Beautiful calm house close to activities.
This charming, cozy but comfortable 2-bedroom 1 bath house is a short walk to the Village of Woodstock. The cottage-like house with skylights is nestled among tranquil forests and its amazing perennial gardens, enchantingly surround the acre property. It is well shaded in summer but still has sunny decks and beach umbrellas for sunbathers. A claw tub in the skylight and bay-windowed bathroom is perfect for de-stressing in bath salts. A front bay window full of plants faces the front deck. For winter nights there is a fireplace inside. You can cook in our simple but fully equipped kitchen with granite counters and Spanish tile floors, or use the cast-iron barbecue outside.
Summer/late Spring: Enjoy nights of stargazing on our deck while eating at the outdoor table with comfy chairs and fold-out lounges. In warm summer weather, visit the local swim holes -- now famous on the internet -- for great swims in the Millstream just 5 min down our quiet street.
Winter: sit by the fireplace. Play the piano or use the mic in our music room... have magical meals on our deck by candlelight, or walk into the Woodstock village 10-minutes by foot to shop in local boutiques and fabulous restaurants. Hear music in local places like the Harmony Cafe for the cost of a drink. We do think this is a PARADISE, especially for artists, writers, young families, and people who enjoy a peaceful beautiful and tasteful non-suburban setting. House is filled with plants and artwork. You will feel at home. We like to keep things simple but comfortable.
Note: This is our real weekend home! We are New York City professors who love books, writing, art, gardening, and the quiet of our special house. We love to share it with like-minded people when we ourselves are traveling.
Other details about the house:
The living room has a comfortable sofa, persian carpets, and a beautiful blue-stone working fireplace. We have original art on the walls and antiques. Skylights and two bay windows add extra light and dimension to living room, one of the bedrooms and the bathroom. Bathroom is charming and simple with a large claw-tub bath. Bay windows host hanging plots and forest views, a sliding-glass door leads to the back deck and large garden area with a view only of our special Art Studio and Archive (10 x 10 separate building). Simple kitchen has authentic Italian tile floors and granite counters, and is fully equipped for cooking.
This peaceful space is artistically furnished. There is a beautiful upright piano for those who love music and also a classical / jazz CD collection.
Because our house is located on a private drive off a low-traffic road, it is very quiet -- yet with quick access to Village activities.
We are animal lovers. Pets are always negotiable ahead of your reservation.

We are writers and professors of English and Philosophy in New York City. We live in France during our breaks from semester teaching, and also in Woodstock, NY, where we garden and write. As artists and academics, we have simple yet beautiful homes, with comfortable spaces for reading and plenty of books. We are happy to rent for others to enjoy when our places are free. We share a space with two cats and a dog. The dog travels with us but sometimes we can arrange a discount on a rental in exchange for caring for our two cats, Emily and Sappho. We look forward to talking to you and possibly being your host.
