About the property

2 Bdr, 1 Bath, Pool, Tennis Court, Stone Freplace, 10 min. to Woodstock, OK

Your own private road takes you to this friendly two-bedroom cottage, located in the Woodstock hamlet of Bearsville. Situated on a 25-acre estate, it once was the summer home of a famous sculptor whose summer art school is tucked away down the hill, now functioning as the family’s home.


The cottage is casual, comfortable, and very private. There are two bedrooms, both newly furnished with Queen-size beds. The larger bedroom has a child's bed, useful for a toddler.

The views from the bedroom windows look right into the woods; views from the kitchen and front yard show off some of our Catskill Mountains. The focal point of the living room is the hand-built stone fireplace. The floor plan is open concept for easy communication between kitchen and living room.

Bed linens and towels are furnished for you. The kitchen is stocked with cookware and plenty of dishes and silverware, and best of all, it has a dishwasher. There is also a clothes washer and dryer should you require them.

The cottage has WiFi, and a TV for playing videos. Some children's videos on site, infant and toddler toys, books in the library that you are welcome to enjoy during your visit.

Outdoors, you can enjoy the mountain views while you bar-b-cue on the charcoal grill. In the summer, a walk of a couple of hundred feet takes you to the solar-heated, saltwater, 50-foot pool. The owner's grown children and grandchildren visit, most often on weekends, so you will be sharing the pool some of the time.

The Bearsville Cottage is a 10-minute drive to the heart of Woodstock, the “most famous little town” in the US; ten minutes in the other direction takes you to fabulous Phoenicia, voted “one of the coolest little towns” in the US. For those who enjoy skiing in the winter, the Bearsville Cottage is less than 30 minutes to the Belleayre Ski Resort.

We supply all bed linens and towels for you. We also provide soap, shampoo, and a hair dryer. There is also a clothes washer and dryer with laundry detergent. Kitchen basics like salt, pepper, and olive oil, and paper towels are also supplied.

**For your own peace of mind, please purchase Trip Insurance.**

Guestbook comments from the manager

I stayed in this cottage in Bearsville by myself for a couple of nights some time ago and enjoyed it very much. The place itself is nice and private, and it's in a beautiful and secluded woodsy part of the area. It's a relaxed, casual place and it's very clean and comfortable, with a really nice fireplace. What's also great is how close it is to Woodstock, since the location is less than ten minutes from the downtown. Would gladly stay there again.

Lovely cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cabin for a long weekend with our toddler. The house is very clean and the surrounding area is beautiful. There were plenty of toys and books to keep our 2 year old occupied. It’s just a few minutes from the town of Woodstock.

An ideal get-away

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend at Bearsville Cabin. The space is cozy without feeling small - smartly laid out to be open and private. The bedrooms are both separated from the main kitchen/dining/living area. Stepping down into the larger bedroom, which features a beautiful view with two windows, makes the whole experience magical. The grounds are extensive and we used the pool, set up a badminton game, played tennis and explored the woods. Our 6 year old loved it. He could roam away from us without being in any danger of traffic or getting lost.

We'll be back.

A little Gem near Woostock

  • 4 of 5

My family and i have chosen to stay here over 3 times. The location, pool and tennis court all add to the charm of this little gem. We stayed over a week, had ice cream in Woodstock and have gotten to know the owners daughter who is lovely.

Lovely people, lovely town and a must for some peace.

Bearsville Cottage

Even during a relatively rainy stay, the cottage is warm and welcoming. After four visits over the years, it hasn't lost its charm.

Great Value

Second time we stayed at the cottage and it's perfect for our family. 2 bedroom, one with a toddler bed, which is perfect for our 3 year old. Pool and Tennis court are amazing and perfect location for seeing nearby towns.

Fantastic cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

I just had a wonderful experience staying here with my husband, toddler, and step-mother. It is cozy but the open layout makes it feel bigger, it is very well-designed and decorated in a somewhat modern Scandinavian style while still true to the mountain cabin spirit. You are surrounded by mountains and trees and you can see a few houses nearby, but you definitely feel like you are surrounded by nature and there are some woods to explore. The pool was closed but it looked really nice, would love to come back in the summer when it is open. We loved all the books, the fireplace, the toys -- our son loved it and already wants to go back! The property manager Robyn was so responsive/helpful and insisted on bringing a space heater for our bathroom when we said it was a little cold. All in all a great experience and we will definitely go back.
