About Kat Gray

We are Kat & Matt Gray and we welcome you to our Woodstock home! We are Vermont natives and have lived in Woodstock for 20 years; we simply love it here. Falcon House is our second HomeAway property in Woodstock. Our own home and property (Dana Road House) # 223034 are located 2 miles from Falcon House, with our 3rd property, The Aerie, located next door. We purchased this property in April 2013 and have freshly landscaped and renovated the home and property. We look forward to making your stay here in Woodstock Vermont both pleasurable and relaxing.

Kat Gray purchased this house in 2013

Why Kat Gray chose West Woodstock

We discovered Falcon house while on a bike ride and fell in love with it's unique and thoughtful design, the forest that surrounds it and the clean, cool brook which runs by the house. We know you'll love it too! What ever brings you to Woodstock, you will enjoy coming home to this comfy house at the end of the day. We've tried to think of everything you will possibly need to make your stay a special one. Enjoy the privacy of a country setting and convenience of being close to the village.

What makes this house unique

Falcon House is a special place. From an original design by famed architect Myron Goldfinger, this home has some truly unique design features and is incredibly well constructed. From the hand made Mexican ceramic tile floors (look for the chicken tracks) to the hand pegged spiral staircase, the house is amazing. It's so close to the village but really feels away from it all. You'll find everything you need to make yourself at home, we find we have many guests who enjoy our properties so much they return year after year.

An architectural master piece!

  • 5 of 5

This place is just minutes from Woodstock located on a beautiful tree lined bike route. It has a gas fire place, spiral staircase, bed and bathroom on loft. Tranquil location on 60 acres, with hiking and mountain biking trails. An outdoor enthusiast's delight. There is even an outdoor shower and yoga platform. It's quiet and surreal. There are two covered bridges within 3 miles of the place. Definitely would go back again in a heartbeat.

Best rental property I have ever booked!

  • 5 of 5

No matter how I try, I will not be able to do the Falcon House justice with my review. This was by far the best rental property I have ever booked, regardless of the company used. Let's start with the most important things: Kat was so friendly and welcoming and helpful throughout the entire process, the house was so clean you could eat off of the floor and counters, all of the linens and furniture smelled fresh and were also incredibly clean, the house was fully stocked with appliances and cookware for most cooking needs, the location was right outside of Woodstock and a short drive to Mt. Killington, the list goes on! You will fall in love with this house and be very happy with Kat. We are already planning our next visit!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here and we will make another visit in the future. Very clean and well stocked with everything you need to cook up a storm. Kat is so nice and available at any time. We went snow shoeing right from the house and had a great time thanks to Matt for showing up just when we were getting ready to go. He brought us through the woods and gave us lots of tidbits on the area. Looking forward to visiting again.

Quintessential New England

  • 5 of 5

which is what we were seeking. The owner has it all right and for once, we got a chance to meet them which is a plus. Neither did we feel that we were bothering them if we had a question or concern, even on a Christmas weekend. Having travelled extensively, we felt at home and welcome and there was nothing missing that we might have needed.

Located just 5 minutes drive from the picturesque village of Woodstock, Vermont. Falcon house is situated on 40 private acres. Close to skiing (Killington & Suicide 6), biking (Woodstock's bike route runs past the house). hike on our trails around the property or enjoy swimming, tennis, golf, shopping, horseback riding and restaurants in Woodstock village and surrounding area. A 20 min. Drive to Killington ski area's Skyeship base, close to Green Mountain Horse Association (GMHA) too. Outstanding mountain and road biking right from the house .

From the Woodstock chamber of commerce: 'everything you love about Vermont describes this quaint village that has been called 'the prettiest small town in America'. First settled in 1768, Woodstock retains the elegant charm and rugged character of American antiquity. With a covered bridge in the middle of town, and stately homes surrounding the village green, it is easy to see why Woodstock has been called the 'quintessential New England village'. You will be greeted with traditional new England hospitality in our unique shops and galleries, artisan studios, country stores and fine restaurants minutes away.'

Other activities: snowboarding, snowmobile trails, golf, hiking, biking, shopping, fine dining, Marsh Billings National Park.

Ski: just 20 minutes to Killington's Skyeship and bear mountain peak via us route 4. Convenient to the slopes and all that beautiful Woodstock village has to offer - fine dining, shops and the arts. Also nearby Woodstock's own suicide six ski area, a great family ski mountain managed by the Woodstock inn. Right near so much and away from it all, perfect!
