Named after Brigadoon, an enchanted place where life is simpler and easier, untouched by the worries of the modern world. You'll understand why when you stay in our peaceful, serene, fully renovated 1850s farmhouse, which is set far back from the main road leading to and from Woodstock, NY. The best of all worlds, it's about 2 minutes from the center of town, and right on the bus route from NYC. But sitting on the front porch overlooking a giant secluded meadow, you can enjoy total privacy from noise and neighbors, and have a complete relaxing country experience. It's a 5-minute walk to gourmet streamside dining at the Bear and Little Bear, and a 5-minute walk to Sunfrost Farms vegetable market and The Cub Market, where you can also enjoy breakfast and The New York Times. This house is perfect for skiers (Hunter, Belleayre, and Windham nearby), festival goers (Film Festival, Bookfest, Comedy Festival, Luthiers, Festival of the Voice, etc.), music lovers or recording groups, and families looking for a charming Woodstock getaway or couples seeking a total romantic country experience. The house is warm in winter, cool in summer, and full of light and open space. It's uncluttered, classic wood and white, and supremely serene. Visitors often spot deer, the occasional black bear, foxes, turkeys, and hawks in the nearby woods and meadow while sipping a cocktail at dusk on the front porch. Amenities include Weber gas bbq grill, outdoor fireplace for marshmallow roasting, giant clawfoot bathtub, washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, gas fireplace, central air-conditioning, business center with printer and fax, free wifi, and cable TV with HBO.

Extremely comfortable, wonderful home near town
We absolutely loved our experience at Brigadoon. All the bedrooms were nice (no one got the “short stick”), the kitchen was fully stocked, everything was emaculate and clean, and although you did get to feel like you were in a far flung spot, town was just a few minutes away.
Other niceties include quick WiFi, a gas fireplace that keeps things nice and warm, cable tv, extensive grounds for a walk, and a great open concept first floor.
Brian, Thanks for the rave review. You and your friends are welcome back any time, and I hope you have a wonderful new year! Gail
Perfect winter getaway
Our family of 3 adults and 3 kids spent Christmas at Brigadoon and could not have been happier. The house is beautiful and cozy - kitchen is huge and had everything we needed, beds are comfy, location is perfect. We were hoping for snow but instead enjoyed the nearby hiking. Gail was such a great host - easy to communicate with, gave lots of helpful local info and accommodated a last minute change of plans. We would love to come back next year!
This is the One!!!
Absolutely lovely!!! I wish I could give it 6stars. The house itself is a original Woodstock farmhouse that has been beautifully reimagined.
The kitchen/dining room are stylish, bright and very well equipped. The master bedroom/bathroom downstairs is amazing. The Upstairs bedrooms are equally as lovely. All the bedding was plush and the
mattresses were comfy.
I wish we could have stayed longer and just hung out. The property is
beautiful and very conveniently located-one mile down the road from town. This is the Perfect Woodstock getaway! We will be back, hopefully often.
Had a wonderful stay at Gail’s house. The house is so comfortable and cute and Gail was very accommodating. She even offered to let us check-in early and with the later check out time we were really able to take advantage of the two days we had there. Also loved that we could walk to the bear cafe! Definitely a bonus!
Cristin, you were great guests. I also loved that you enjoyed reading a book from my "book club" library on the cozy couch during the rain. Please come again!
Norman Rockwell come to life, with an artistic and modern flair
We had family coming in for an event, and rented the famhouse for the occasion. When we went to look at it, WOW! this is a perfectly restored early farmhouse overlooking a seven acre meadow (rare in town, there's a reason they call it "Woods-tock). So calm and beautiful, with a mighty hill and forest with large trees to the rear. We fell in love with the house immediaely, and decided to take it for ourselves, handing our own house over to the family.
Maybe it's the idyllic setting, maybe it's the lovely renovation and decor (featuring local artwork of high quality), maybe it's that feeling of seclusion and isolation while at the same time being only walking distance from the Bear Cafe and Cub deli, maybe it's the delightful large gas fireplace, whatever, this house is just magical. We felt relaxed just walking inside. We joked about selling our house and moving in here.
Woodstock is cool, filled with clothing and food boutiques and restaurants of every description. Since we know the town, we decided to act as though we were strangers, seeing it with fresh eyes. From the vantage point of this lovely farmhouse and farmfield, we saw there is a lot of appeal, eaven for someone new to the area. We walked over to the Bearsville Theater to a show. We took the family on a hike up Overlook Mountain. We window-shopped and snacked the days away.
Then home to three totally comfy beds, really nice linens and quilts, quiet and lovely space (ample space, not cramped), views of the hawks circling in the sun. Honestly, we can't imagine wanting more, and we even went home with some ideas for improving the experience of our own house. We'll go back to the farmhouse---and Gail's charming hostessing---anytime we get and chance.
Charming, Cozy, Private.
There was a group of 4 of us.
We really enjoyed staying the house, we loved the cozy beds, firepit and the sunflower market down the road.
The host is really gracious and helpful.
We will visit again during the summer
