Ultimate Retreat with Mountain Views

Nestled in woodlands between Woodstock and Saugerties on fifteen private acres in Upstate New York, with stunning views of the Blue Mountains of the Catskills overlooking your very own pond - Hacienda de Leyenda is the ultimate retreat! Perfect for multiple families or a large group.

We are on a quiet country estate with eagles, woodpeckers, Canadian geese, deer and woodchucks amongst other wildlife for company. Hacienda is just five miles from Saugerties town and six miles from Woodstock town. We sit in the gateway to the Catskills ski mountains with a short 25 minute drive to Belleayre mountain, 30 minutes to Hunter Mountain and 40 minutes to Windham Mountain.

Gorgeous blue stone walls wrap around the pool deck and complement the lit in-ground pool. Brand new hot tub installed on the pool deck for year-round enjoyment.

Upon entering, you are greeted magnificent views to the private estate and Blue Mountains in the Great Room. The grand open floor plan spans into the large working kitchen with island, two dishwashers and all of the equipment to cook up amazing meals in the dining area that can seat 20+ guests.

Head downstairs and you are welcomed into the Lower Level lounge + bar area complete with stadium seating for movies and live sports viewing complete with its own full working bar, pool table and multiple chill out seating areas.

This house has everything

  • 5 of 5

We spent a family ski weekend here and enjoyed every minute of it. The amenities were fantiastic, including the hot tub, sauna and blue tooth speakers throughout the home. There is plenty of room to spread out so the kids and adults can do there own thing. Liz was a great host and available if anything was needed. We look forward to staying here again.

Amazing place to gather and relax!

  • 5 of 5

15 friends and I needed to get out of the city for a few days and HDL was the most amazing place to enjoy some peace and quiet! Even though we were a huge group, the space never felt crowded - a few of us lounging by the fire in the great room, one in the hammock reading a book, a few having a conversation in the rocking chairs on the deck, others lounging in the library with a movie, some downstairs hanging at the bar, playing pool and ping pong - we never needed to leave the property. Even with some not so great weather we spent a lot of time outside in the hot tub, playing tennis, and just wandering around the property. The kitchen was extremely well provisioned and we managed to get everyone around the table for breakfast and dinner each day. We loved the layout and the attention to detail - the house is wonderfully decorated and so so comfortable (the beds were also extremely comfortable!) We're already talking about coming back for a summer weekend to take advantage of that pool area! Thanks so much for opening your wonderful home to us!!

You have to see it to believe it

  • 5 of 5

I'm not quite sure where to begin. This home and the entire property are totally unbelievable and this is hands down one of the most beautiful homes I've ever stayed in. I am grateful to have been able to celebrate my birthday here with a group of 16 friends and would absolutely recommend this home. The house has everything you could ever need and more. Liz, thank you so much for letting us spend a magical weekend here and I hope to be back again soon!

Absolutely Amazing Upstate Escape

  • 5 of 5

This place is spectacular. Once you show up you wont leave for the rest of your trip. Every ammenitie possible, - pool table, ping pong, pool and hot tub, bocce ball courts and basket ball court there's even a gym in one of the outbuildings. The house itself is beautiful and so large. The kitchen is fully outfitted and great for cooking with a group. The management were lovely and came to fix a few lights right away. Great place for a large group. Will no doubt be back.

Fantastic Fall Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Brought a bachelorette group of 12 up for the weekend from the city and we had a FABULOUS time! The great room was perfect for hanging out and making flower crowns, and the sizable kitchen and dining room table made for a memorable family dinner. While we didn't take advantage of the teepees, we were charmed by the entire property. Also the beds are SO COMFORTABLE and the linens luxurious. We also fully enjoyed the technologically advanced thermostat, lighting and security functions plus an outstanding soundsystem so we could have spontaneous disco-ball dance parties.

The only issue was a broken coffee machine but the owners took care of it right away when called and brought a new one (except we didn't have filters).

It's obvious the owners love this place and take great care of it. Would recommend it to anyone and will definitely be back!
