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.

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.

Lovely and very private, surrounded by woods

  • 4 of 5

Overall, my stay was excellent and the property manager, Robyn, was thoughtful and helpful. The Cottage was very comfortable and suited my need for a quiet place to write for a week. As advertised, it has a nice swimming pool and an excellent tennis court, neither of which I had time to use. The WiFi was excellent (50 mbytes/sec down and 5 mbytes/sec up). The only odd thing was the lack of a good set of knives for serious cooking. I could find only a couple of paring knives in an otherwise well equipped kitchen. I was impressed by the excellent library and great collection of DVDs.

Peace in the Catskills

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this cottage twice now--once in summer, once in winter--and each time our visit has proved both stimulating and restful. The kitchen is easy to negotiate, the fireplace warm, the book and film libraries excellent. The views from the bedroom windows make you feel you're in the middle of the woods, although the grounds around the house are expansive. The property, which includes a swimming pool and tennis court for summer and plenty of firewood for all seasons, is well-maintained. The drive to Woodstock is fifteen minutes, to Phoenicia only slightly longer. What's not to like?
