Overview

About the property

3-BR, 2-BA handcrafted home w/terraced gardens + worldclass view

Discover the peace and beauty of your own secluded Arts + Crafts-style house perched on the southern ridge of Ohayo Mountain with an expansive (180 degree) view of the Ashokan Reservoir surrounded by mountains. Watch the sun rise above the Hudson River Valley and set behind the high peaks of the Catskill Mountains (and see the colors reflected not only in the clouds above, but also in the water below). On a clear day, you can see the Mohonk tower in the Shawangunk range due south. On a cloudy day, the formations drift past you like passing sailing ships!

This idyllic Woodstock retreat started out as a rustic mountain cabin with a large stone fireplace and exposed chimney. Since then it has been expanded and updated by a master stone mason and carpenter to include two second floor bedroom wings (each accessed by separate stairways) with cathedral ceilings, oversize picture windows, and glass doors that open onto private balconies. The first floor “great room” consists of a country kitchen with a breakfast bar/island, a living room with a free-standing cast-iron fire stove (as well as the original fireplace), and a dining area with sliding glass doors that open onto a spacious railed, multi-level deck with steps down to a stone patio that wraps around the house and descends partway down the mountain in a series of terraced gardens. In addition there’s a TV/music room with an old-time upright piano and large flat screen TV, and a smaller guest bedroom opposite the first floor bathroom with a vintage tub and porcelain sink. The upstairs bathroom is tiled in cobalt blue, and features a large walk-in shower with a built-in tiled bench. A landing at the top of the east-wing stairway features a reading nook with a built-in cushioned bench and bookcase. There are examples of artistic craftsmanship in the woodwork, much of which is shaped/carved or inlaid; the stonework, which blends natural living rock formations with dry-laid meandering walls, steps, pathways and patios; and the gardens of flowering shrubs, vines, exotic trees and perennials. As charming as the house and grounds are, the real attraction is the breathtaking unobstructed view, which is visible from every room of the house and every patio, porch, deck, terrace and lookout on the property. In fact, you can even relax in a rustic plunge pool (12 ft. in diameter and 4 ft deep) that is built into an escarpment of rock on the far edge of the patio and enjoy the view from there!

Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

We had an all-too-brief 2 night stay at Eagle's Nest, and loved every moment of it. First of all, the views are as incredible as pictured, if not more so. The lack of greenery during winter didn't affect them, if anything our view was more unimpeded by the bare trees. The house is obviously built to take best advantage, with a full porch along the mountain-side of the house, and every room containing oversized windows. It makes a dramatic way to wake up, I can say.

Beyond the views, the house itself is very private and has a ton of character. There is lots of rustic woodworking detail and several rooms have laddered loft spaces. Whether you need that additional space or not, it gives the whole house a lot of visual interest.

We also loved the town of Woodstock, no more than 5-10 minutes away, which had a lot of quaint stores including the obvious festival tie-ins. Touristy, yes, but still interesting to explore. The owner makes several restaurant recommendations, and the few we tried were well worth it. The Oriole makes a great breakfast.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights at Eagles Nest. The name is certainly befitting the setting as we were perched on top of a beautiful mountain with lovely views. The home itself is clean, well stocked with plenty of room for all. The master and second bedrooms upstairs are very large and the third bedroom on the main floor was great for a child. Speaking of children, don't be afraid to bring the kids, there are plenty of nooks and crannies for the kids to explore both inside and out! Patricia greeted us at the home and was extremely accommodating. Chelsea managed the reservation and answered every question I had, including sending me a photo of the home in the winter. I think they should add those photos to the site as they are equally stunning! This is certainly a four-season home. Anyone would love to visit this rental - Enjoy!

Excellent getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place with the best view from a private home I've seen in a long time.

We were two couples there for a long weekend. It's a great place to relax. We mostly built fires, stargazed, played board games, watched movies on the big TV, and took walks on the forest hillside. There's a neighbor on one side, not too close, and it feels quite private.

Pretty hard to find fault with anything. The quirky layout requires folks in one bedroom to walk through the other to get to the (only) shower, and not every window in the master bedroom had shades, but nothing was a real bother.

Judy's team does a great job getting you in and answering any questions along the way.

We'll be back!

This is a beautiful home and the views!!

  • 5 of 5

A very bright and cozy home with exceptional views of the Ashokan reservoir and the beautiful Catskill mountains. Also just a short drive into Woodstock.The home is well equipped for cooking and has a wood burning fireplace that we enjoyed during the cool evenings.
