About carol johnson

I am a Bronx girl who moved to Woodstock in 1982. I fell in love with the Hudson Valley and have lived here since.

My husband and I bought this property in 1998 from the builder and added a guest house in 2006 designed by Les Walker it sits on a site that gives each building complete privacy from the other. I am a mortgage broker and my husband is retired. Riley is a shetland sheepdog who has adopted us as her parents 8 years ago.

carol johnson purchased this house in 1998

Why carol johnson chose Woodstock

I have loved this property since the builder cleared the land and then built this house for himself. I am so grateful

to be able to enjoy the serenity of the property and would like to share that with my guests.

Sitting in a space listening to the birds chirp and the

peepers making their noises - watch squirrels and rabbits

prance around and an occasional deer walking by or

a hummingbird drinking from the gardens is a wonderful

gift. I love this place.

What makes this house unique

The two story wall of windows bringing the outdoors in and a view of nature in all seasons. In Autumn the colors are spectacular, in winter it feels so cozy watching the snow,

in Spring the birds come to sing and everything starts to bloom - in Summer it is spectacular

Carol was a wonderful and accommodating host. She let us reschedule due to weather, provided treats for our dog, and bought us going away breakfast. The property is gorgeous. Secluded but only 10 Min from Woodstock. Will go back for sure!

I absolutely loved the house, property and location. Not to mention that the woman who owns it, Carol, is so sweet. If you have dogs this is the place to go. Dogs rule here, that's Carols motto. As soon as you walk in, your in awe of the two story grand entrance. The place is decorated in such a calm and beautiful way. The property is just gorgeous. It goes on forever and my dog loved that. Beds are comfortable. The kitchen does not have an oven but that was not an issue for me. I had no intentions of using it while on vacation. There is still a toaster oven, microwave, two cooktops, small fridge, and coffee maker. Carol was kind enough to leave cream and butter in the fridge along with yogurt, coffee, instant oatmeal and a nice bottle of wine. She was so helpful with her knowledge of the area, where to go, where to eat and told us about a great farm market in Kingston that we went too. Next time I come to the area I will definitely stay here. I cant imagine that another property would be so wonderful. Thank you Carol for making this a great trip for us and Frida.

A Get-A-Away to Remember

  • 5 of 5

The first thing I noticed was that the house is spotless! This is a cozy beautiful house with incredible views . We stayed 3 nights. The backyard is magnificent. We loved the fire pit and make awesome steaks on the grill. The owners are wonderful people who just want to make you as comfortable as possible. We had fun exploring the village of Woodstock and returning back to the house to relax . We brought our dog who Loved running and playing . Carol the owner left us dog treats and brought over the best pie I ever had. We will definitely be returning.

Beautiful mountain stay

Lovely small house on the side of Overlook Mountain near Woodstock New York. The house has all basic amenities, but the kitchen has some limitations. Back deck and garden are magnificent.
