|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Our newly renovated and well-equipped cabin sits at the end of a dead-end road on three secluded acres including rolling lawn, woodlands, and a pretty pond. You probably won't hear another car all weekend. Yet we are less than five miles from Woodstock, the cultural center of the Catskills, with its galleries, theaters, festivals, restaurants, concerts, and boutiques.
Maybe you won't get back in your car for your entire stay - you can sit on one of our large decks, or screened-in porch, or soak in the hot tub, and watch deer, wild turkey, (and maybe even a bear) stroll by. Or walk across the road for a hike on hundreds of acres of public land. In the winter, build a fire in the wood stove, or go sledding down our own hill.
Or you might use our home as a comfortable base for all the cultural and recreational activities available in the area - hiking, rafting, skiing, swimming holes, are all nearby.
Wi-fi included. See link below for dozens of more photos.
Lovingly renovated by an artist, and filled with art, the house features new bathrooms, bedrooms, and kitchen, and tons of outdoor deck space.
We're less than two hours from the George Washington Bridge - and there's even a Trailways bus stop about two miles from the house. But once you turn into our driveway, you are in another world of quiet and relaxation.

This home was all that it was described, and more. Comfrotable well-equipped home. Several seprate living areas makes this home work well with groups, or an intimate get together. Enough shade to be cool in the summer, and close to the town of Woodstock for dining shopping etc. A wonderful find, we will be back!
My wife and I stayed here with another couple and our kids (collectively, four boys between 2 and 6 yrs old) over Labor Day weekend. The property is really gorgeous -- plenty of room to kick a ball around in the back yard and then there's the lovely little pond which the boys enjoyed exploring (toads, a flock of wild turkeys etc.) Town is a ten minute drive away, convenient and cute. We'd been to Woodstock plenty of times, so really we were just up there to escape apartment life in Brooklyn and enjoy nature. There's a hammock out front that was just wonderful -- both for playing with the kids in it and for taking a restorative mid-day nap. Great grill on the back porch and the jacuzzi was perfect for a grownups-only bottle of wine at night when the kids went to bed. The inclusion of all the sheets and towels is a huge plus and made packing easy; the place is very clean and easy to get around (so long as you can handle stairs etc.) My only knock is that it'd be nice if the owner allowed tenants to use the fire-pit...our boys were very interested and wanted to make s'mores etc, but it is clearly disallowed so we did not. I understand (since I used to own a place w fire-pit and not everyone knows how to manage a fire safely.) Still, kind of a bummer. That said, don't let that little quibble prevent you from renting this stellar property. owner was very easy to work with and communicates well with detailed instructions on everything (verging on the hilariously over-documented, but actually super useful!)
From the moment i contacted the homeowners i knew this would be a great experience. Michael and Anne have thought of everything. The home exceeded our expectations. Beautiful, clean and well stocked. I had a question after we arrived and immediately received a call to help me navigate the stereo,( im technology challenged). We even had a black bear sighting just to make our stay that much better. We had planned to go out to dinner but we were so comfortable we stayed in both nights. Would highly recommend this property.
The Pond House was a supper place for our family to take a few days away from city life. The secluded location and beautiful property were perfect for our 2 1/2-year old grandson to explore. The house is very nice with plenty of room for four couples or a family with a need for multiple rooms. We enjoyed the kitchen/living area but the best place for gathering was the screened rear porch. Having breakfast in the rain on the porch was magic. The bathrooms (one up, one down) were fine but I would not recommend the tubs for those with movement disabilities. The house rules (i.e., instructions) provided by the owner were very helpful and guided us through operating the house and let us focus on having fun. Woodstock is a short drive away and a most interesting, artsy town but with nice restaurants and varied shopping.The photos on the VRBO website are accurate but don't do the property justice ... it is better than it looks in the photos. All in all, I would highly recommend this property for a get away vacation.
My friends and I recently came back from staying at Michael's home for a long weekend and we had such an awesome time! The house was so much bigger and more beautiful than we expected. Our main concerns were the one neighbor within an earshot and the house not having AC, but everything turned out fine. No complaints from the neighbor and the house stayed cool during our stay! We enjoyed grilling and relaxing in the hot tub - overall, I recommend! We will definitely be back next summer.
From the start Michael the owner was wonderful. The pictures are true to the cabin. The decks were amazing. Coffee or wine overlooking the grounds was picture perfect. Also, not having television's was pretty darn amazing. Life does go on....haha. The free wifi and stereo systems an added bonus. I must say the cabin in a whole was perfect. We stayed for my sister's bachelorette weekend. The house was comfortable for 8 women. Thanks Michael for sharing your home. I would recommend it to anyone.
Other Activities: HIking, Wildlife Viewing, Rafting/Tubing, Snowboarding
