Just 1/2 mile from town center, Herb Cottage is nestled at the gateway to Woodstock’s legendary Overlook Mountain. If you’re searching for a mystical hideaway in which to relax, restore your energies, and recapture your creative self, this is the place for you!

Completely renovated, Herb Cottage offers a delightful mix of luxurious appointments and bluestone charm, including:

• Comfortable living room with woodstove, bluestone hearth, and 37' Cable HDTV, Blu-Ray and CD players, and an extensive library of books, games, DVDs and CDs.

• Fully-equipped country kitchen with a bluestone countertop, herb tiles from Mexico, and a sunny dining nook.

• Loft bedroom with a king-size bed and view of Overlook Mountain.

• Bathroom with a claw foot tub and rain shower.

• Additional amenities include luxury linens, spa robes, WIFI, and a secluded bluestone terrace with bluestone table and gas grill.

Quaint, cozy, private but in the mix of things

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Herb Cottage. Woodstock is such a charming town and it was fun to see the changes going on since our first visit, new restaurants and stores, etc. When it comes to outdoor beauty, it can't be beat. The lake and wooded areas are lovely and it's always fun to see wildlife. The Cottage is immaculate, very comfortable with tons of movies and books to keep everyone occupied on rainy days. Love the Saturday flea market and Catskill Pizza can't be beat. Thanks for the wonderful stay!

Great little hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great mini-moon staying at the Herb Cottage. It was very hot and muggy when we arrived but it was cool and comfortable in the cottage for the entirety of our stay. The sleeping loft was adorable - I loved how cozy it felt. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and living space and were able to spend days in or explore the local sights in Woodstock.

The only downside was how low the ceilings were - my husband had to pay close attention to make sure he didn't knock his head as he came down the stairs from the sleeping loft.

Charm & Serenity

  • 5 of 5

We visited Herb Cottage for a long weekend in late April and were immediately captivated by its serenity and charm. The cottage is beautifully decorated and appointed with thoughtful, welcoming touches like the cozy socks for cold toes and small bouquet of flowers on the edge of the bathroom sink. The living room offered a great place to curl up with a book and on sunny days we took full advantage of the quiet garden patio (complete with a family of white tail deer!) - the perfect spot to sit with a glass of wine. Like home, but better.

The village of Woodstock with it's cafes, bookstores, and shops is easily accessible when supplies or an outing are required. We would love to come back again!

Fantastic stay - perfect cozy spot!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our mini honeymoon at the herb cottage and couldn't have asked for more. Such a perfect cozy getaway surrounded by loads of green and flowering lilacs. We're used to close quarters living in New York City, and the cottage felt similar being a very small house - but it really had all the amenities we were looking for. Loved the gold clawfoot tub and the breakfast nook in the kitchen. Also a tremendous DVD selection and super comfy swivel chairs.

The hosts set you up with all the local recommendations and history of the area.

Would recommend this place for folks who want to get cozy and away from the hustle and bustle!
