Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Woodstock - 1-BR: Herb Cottage

1-bedroom 2-story cottage with wood stove, sleeps 2

Experience the essence of Woodstock in this former home to Anita M. Smith — artist, historian and “Herb Lady of the Catskills.” Enjoy the fragrance and serenity of the “show-off” herb garden right outside your door.

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.

• Optional: Reiki treatments and access to other holistic practitioners.

Ideal for a couple. Combine with nearby Rock City Writer's Studio (HA# 3469886) for additional space.

Charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a weekend stay at Herb Cottage and enjoyed it very much! From the start of our booking process Chelsea was a pleasure to communicate with and very responsive. She made the reservation process very smooth and answered every question we had thoroughly. The cottage itself is lovely--exactly what you see in the pictures! We enjoyed a warm fire in the morning when the house had cooled down a bit, but also enjoyed the dutch door and some warm air in the afternoon. All in all, highly recommend this cottage! I hope to visit again soon!

Cozy and charming

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cottage that is seven minute walk to center of Woodstock. Cozy, charming and well maintained. The living room has a wood burning stove that is a very nice touch, as well as, about 150 movies to choose from. The outdoor patio seating is clean and charming as well. The bed itself is definitely on the firm side, but not uncomfortable.

Pros:

1. Beautifully kept cottage with all amenities you need.

2. SUPER helpful booking agency that rents the property for the owner.

Cons:

1. Some street noise (cars braking, driving by), as the cottage is right next to a road and an intersection.

2. If you are over 6 feet tall, you will have to duck when walking into the kitchen, up to the bedroom, and in the bedroom itself.

Idyllic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at this adorable cottage. Close to town, wonderful historic towns and places to see. Our dogs love the beautiful yard. It was very quiet, weather was perfect and we had a wonderful, peaceful vacation. Thank you so much!
