A striking countryside retreat with space for 4, The Glasco Residence is packed with retro and kitsch touches and is near the town of Woodstock in upstate New York. Formerly the site of a glass factory, this modern home was built on the property in 2001 with inspiration taken from the shape of Monopoly houses. The dining room connects the two house-shaped spaces, and it’s a really unique place to stay. With seven acres of land, including an enchanted forest and a tree fort, it’s a pretty good place to play hide and seek, too.

What we love

  • It’s a really striking space, with two tall peaked rooves and a shared open plan living space downstairs
  • The decor is fun and tongue-in-cheek: bird candlesticks, owl lampbases, cushions in the shape of a fire and the odd cheeky gnome
  • Both bedrooms are on the ground floor (it's all one-level) and are warm and cosy with views of the woods.
  • The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with tub and shower
  • The kitchen overlooks the gardens so you can be making dinner while the kids romp
  • The lounge is super cosy with a Rais wood stove and sofas, a DVD player and Netflix
  • The garden is made for an epic game of hide and seek, with woods, lawns, decking and a treehouse.
  • The owner is a chef and can provide custom heat-and-serve meals, grocery shopping and fridge stocking. She makes killer homemade granola.

Things to know

  • The property is five minutes’ drive from Woodstock village
  • Woodstock is reachable without a car - there’s a taxi in the village that can take you here
  • There are a few notable hazards for little ones: a pond in the garden, a wood burning stove in the lounge without a grate, and ungated stairs
  • A twin-size air bed can also be added on request
  • And there’s a queen-sized sofa bed in the lounge
  • Limited babyproofing - no stair gates or outlet covers
  • It's all one level with a step up to the bedrooms
  • Woodstock is 2 hours north of New York City
  • Nearby you’ll find farms, national parks, apple picking, mountains and pretty villages and towns with independent stores
  • There is a grill outside for those who like to dine al fresco
  • The host requires at least a 7 day lead time before a check in date so they can prepare the property for guests

Ceci and her husband built this fabulous house in 2001-right when their son Eli was born. Ceci is a chef and televison personality and Mark is a photographer. They can trace the deeds to their property back to the 1800's. Birge Harrison, the world renowned tonalist painter who founded the Arts Student League in Woodstock resided on their land and painted landscapes of the surrounding area.

This home was a nice retreat stay for our family. With two little ones ages 3 and 2 the home was terrific for playing in the yard and in the living room. The house offers convenient access to downtown with a short 5-minute drive while offering privacy and being out in nature. The homeowner welcomed our children to house with toys, bubbles and trains. The location is within a 20-30 minutes drive of scenic lakes, Hudson river trails and quaint river towns.

Green, organic and free range

Head to the Catskills and Woodstock for an eco-friendly retreat: wooded hillsides, hiking trails, lakes, rivers and plenty of space to run, yell and play. Artists, writers and musicians have made this rural spot a colony for the arts - and there’s great home-baked food here too.
