Perks for the Parents

This sunny, contemporary home within walking distance of Woodstock sits on 5 acres of land with its own saltwater pool. It sleeps 6. The house is well set up for families with a built-in kitchen nook, breakfast bar seating and a separate dining area. There is also lovely outdoor seating on the large deck surrounded by trees. The primary bedroom has its own bathroom and views of greenery. The 2 twin bedrooms are ideal if you’re traveling with an au pair or nanny. Unwind on the deck, enjoy a swim in the saline pool, or explore the many charming towns around.

Why Kids Love it

The residence has tons of toys, books and games to keep kids entertained. Ideally kids will be age 4 and up as there is no highchair, crib or baby bath, unless you bring your own. The children’s room is decorated with colorful artwork and outside there’s space to roam freely in the trees or splash in the lovely pool that has steps leading down into it. When the weather’s warm wander around town to a local playground, or buy an ice cream and frozen yogurt at Nancy's of Woodstock Artisanal Creamery. The area is filled with summer camps, farms and wonderful activities to keep kids of all ages occupied.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights. The stairs leading to the upstairs bedrooms are ungated. Outside, there are steps off the deck that lead down to the pool. However, the deck is fully contained with a fence and several gates so young children are prevented from wandering down to the pool or out into the yard. The pool and yard also have a new perimeter fence. A trampoline is also on the property to be used at guests’ own risk. The house is about 2 hours driving from New York city, the nearest airports are in NYC (2 hrs, 30 mins' drive), Albany 45 mins’ drive).

About the Location

This residence is close to the town of Woodstock, New York – an 8-minute walk or a 3-minute drive. Woodstock is a charming place with a family-run grocery store, local wine and liquor store, and plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. Nearby are hiking trails, local streams and swimming holes, small towns to explore, local music, playgrounds, art galleries and antique shops. Hunter, Belleayre and Windham ski resorts are within about 45 minutes.

Style Notes

Peaceful woodland retreat. This calming home is light and sunny with bright accents and pops of colour. It has all modern amenities including a fully-equipped kitchen and washer / dryer. The relaxed vibe externs throughout with large windows upstairs and down letting in views of the trees at every turn. The bathrooms are modern with metro tiles and marble vanity tops. We love the landing wallpaper featuring native wildlife you can see around the Catskill Mountains, the main bedroom with baseboard heating, a skylight and its own balcony, and the feeling of being in the great outdoors with everything at hand.

Woodstock, Catskills

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.

Shotwell Rd residence was an amazing and tranquil location. Plenty of privacy and wildlife. But also very close (walking distance) to Woodstock. The surrounding area offers great outdoor activity. Christina was a fantastic host and very helpful. I would definitely recommend the property.
