About Peter Bennett

My wife and I grew up in Bay Ridge Brooklyn and both vacationed in the Catskill mountains while growing up. It has always been a special area for us. As an adult I had to the honor of working as a Musician at Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble for many years, which prompted us to purchase this home. The house has a really great energy to it, it feeds our souls and leaves us yearning for our next visit. We are really glad that we have decided to share the experience of our home and area with others.

Peter Bennett purchased this house in 2007

The property has very easy access on a beautiful scenic road across from a creek. It is conveniently located in the middle of the Catskill mountain region allowing for easy travel to neighboring towns for skiing, hiking,Saugerties HITS horse shows, golfing and many more outdoor recreational activities.

Cute place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were four woman that were working at the Country Living Fair at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds sharing your house. We thought it was a cute and clean house. Rooms were comfortable and so was the couch. The only concern we had was the well water odor. We drank the water in the bubbler in the kitchen and brought in our own water bottles. We would certainly stay at your house again. Maybe next June!

Quaint little house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our two night stay here near Woodstock. Just two of us, we were looking for a quiet getaway near some hiking trails, and this small house served its purpose well.

The house itself is small, you enter to the living room and kitchen offset from that. Any more than a close couple and maybe a child would be pushing it, size wise. There are two bedrooms, small but comfortable, and one bathroom. The kitchen is a lovely place to make a meal, and has a large window overlooking the back yard, and woods.

We were there around Thanksgiving, but the backyard looked enjoyable if the weather was better - chairs and a fire pit up against some woods. Other reviews have mentioned it is just off a road, and while it is, its not a heavily traveled road. Its also very conveniently located if coming from the city - near 87, and a couple minutes to 28 if you are driving further in to the mountains, and only 10 minutes from Woodstock.

The only issues we had were the lighting and the water. Its very dim, and there is little overhead light, so we had to contort ourselves a bit under lamps and so forth to read comfortably. Second, the water must be from a well - very strong sulphur smell, especially in the bathroom, so you have to keep that closed. I don't know if there is anything to be done about that, but its noticeable; they thoughtfully provide water for drinking and cooking in kitchen. Wifi is strong, the TV is connected through Roku, not cable, so you can't watch live TV. Also to consider, its not the most up to date, fancy place - its totally comfortable, has everything you need, but its not modern or newly redone.

The owners were easy to communicate with via text, easier to get in and out, that was great.

Great house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This place was just perfect for our ladies getaway! The house was centrally located to all the areas we wanted to see. The property was just as photographed. There were plenty of amenities and plenty of space. Comfortable sleeping. Easy check in and out. As another reviewer stated there is a sulfur odor to the water in the bathroom. Wouldn't keep us from coming back - just letting others know in case you are sensitive to the smell like I am. Bottled drinking water was left for us. The kitchen appliances were really nice. Did not see any laundry on site - but was not an issue for our stay. Owners were easy to communicate with and responsive. We brought some of our own wood for the outdoor fire pit but never ended up needing it. There did not seem to be wood supplied - so keep in mind if you want a campfire. Great Stay! THANKS

Very cute house close to Woodstock with small quirks

  • 4 of 5

The house itself is easy to find, in a great location and exactly as pictured. So cute and comfy for a quick trip. The TV/wifi situation is great with NetFlix and Amazon streaming. The one issue I wish we had known about is the smell - there is a strong sulphur smell emanating from the bathroom. We texted the owners to let them know and they quickly responded to let us know that the house water is safe, just drawn from a well which can cause a smell. They also sent the property manager over to change the water filter but by then we were getting ready to head out for the day. If that issue is resolved, the house is a great option for lodging in the area!

Things to do while you enjoy your stay in Woodstock...get into the laid-back Catskills vibe and browse the eclectic shops and galleries along Tinker Street and Mill Hill Road in Woodstock, then head over to the Creekside Grille at the Woodstock Golf Club to enjoy sunset cocktails overlooking the greens and a babbling creek,and then walk across the street to the yellow-clapboard farmhouse that's now Cucina, where the modern Italian menu of fresh seasonal ingredients can be enjoyed on the atmospheric porch in summer or next to a roaring fire in winter.
