About the property

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.

Unique property convenient to Woodstock and the Hudson Valley

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully preserved and improved cottage sitting just at the outskirts of Woodstock. i really can't say enough about how much we loved this property. Somewhat of a cross between a cottage and a cabin, it sits at the edge of a creek very close to the center of Woodstock (10 min walk) and the overlook mountain trail (5 minute drive). We loved the interesting details (kitchen sink/cabinet) as well as the wood stove which was a must in sub-zero temps. 30 minutes to Hunter and 45 to Windam for sking. Looking forward to returning in the summer months.

Lovely Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this cottage for a birthday weekend and it did not disappoint, has a lot of charm! The place was very clean, cozy and welcoming with plenty of books, magazines, games and movies for entertainment. Nice sized refrigerator, working microwave, coffee maker and stove; plenty of utensils as well. There is also a stove fireplace which heats up the cottage very well, so you don't need the thermostat unless you prefer it to the stove. If you are looking for privacy, alone time etc. This is the spot! The manager was responsive as well. The location makes for a quick ride to the main town which is very pretty and peaceful. Nice stores and good food spots with great service. If you appreciate history, you will appreciate the original markings of the hand hewn wood beams in the ceiling! The bathrobes, socks and blankets were a plus :) I would definitely rent this cottage again :)

Cozy Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is cozy, clean and comfortable. It has all the amenities you need. It is filled with history which adds to its charm. The cottage fits the description as listed. We mostly used the property to relax, read, write and watch a few videos. The area is filled with activity. Only negative is the bathroom is on the first floor and sleeping space in loft. I'd definitely recommend this charming getaway.

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!
