About Mary Smith

I am a local & have the pleasure of living most of my life in the area. The cottage is named after my Mother, Margaret.

My Mother worked in "Deanies Restaurant" for more than 30 years & like so many Woodstockers was a colorful, beloved character,when I was a teenager she brought home autographs from Paul Butterfield, The Band & the most treasured Jimmy Hendrix

Mary Smith purchased this cottage in 1987

Guestbook comments from the owner

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful, relaxing anniversary weekend at Mary's cottage in Woodstock! Mary was very responsive when coordinating our trip and had the keys ready for us when we arrived. The cottage was easy to find and literally a 5 minute walk into town. The cottage itself is even nicer than the photos show - the bed is super comfortable and it was so nice to wake up surrounded by trees! We loved the thoughtful bottle of wine, milk and snacks and other supplies provided, and we used all of her suggestions for hikes/sightseeing around the town. We will definitely come back, but leaf peepers should go now as the leave are just gorgeous!

Outdated Cabin, Good Location

  • 2 of 5

We really enjoyed the surrounding countryside! This location is perfect for nearby hiking, the reservoir, and even for the restaurants located in Woodstock. Mary is kind, but the accommodations themselves were a bit uncomfortable. The ants in the kitchen got into our food multiple times (even when we tried to seal bags). Mary gave us some vinegar to see if it would help with the ants, but unfortunately it didn't. The cabin was a bit dusty/musty. We didn't feel comfortable with our little one rolling around. On the plus side, Mary left a welcome basket and some wine, and the king bed was VERY comfortable! Would look for a different place next time.

Owner's Response: I take pride in the cottage & have maintained a "Super Host" status on another booking site for more than 2 years. The cottage is accurately depicted in the photos, it has "retro" furniture ( Heywood /Wakefield) bedroom set, knotty pine walls & furniture picked for comfort. The bathroom is newly renovated in marble tiles on the floor & shower/ tub surround. I clean the cottage myself 100% of the time- it is clean -check other reviews. In regard to the "ant" complaint, I choose not to use chemical sprays. I did question the guest who checked in the next day, they did see 1 ant in the 5 days they stayed. In an effort to accommodate this unhappy guest I refunded them a full night's charge. I was under no obligation to do so & I had to pay VRBO its percentage that I choose to refund.

Clean, cozy, convenient

  • 4 of 5

This was a great find in the village of Woodstock. The house is clean, nicely decorated, set-up well and offered everything we needed.

We stayed with our 3.5 year-old son so had that extra consideration of flow and set-up and this house worked. We had our son stay up in the master room with us but there is also a second bedroom on the ground floor. There is a small yard, books, and toys. The gracious host even left goodies and provided sleds for us.

We are happy to discover this new option for our frequent visits to the area and definitely recommend it!

Super clean and cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this quaint cottage for two days after Christmas. This home was just a short walk from town but still felt somewhat secluded as it was surrounded by trees. When we arrived Mary (the owner) was very hospitable, providing us with a complimentary bottle of wine, sparkling water, fresh fruit and snacks, and a bottle of farm fresh milk! There were fresh flowers throughout as well. The bed linens and towels were hotel quality and very clean. The master bedroom was big and bright with a very comfortable bed and tranquil views. We were all very comfortable there and will absolutely stay there again!!!

Such a cute house, and well-stocked!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a lovely time in this cottage. The little garden is very cute and lit up at night in an adorable way. The kitchen was stocked with milk, coffee and snacks, which made life very easy. The bathroom had shampoo, soap and conditioner. The upstairs master bedroom is really pretty and large. Lots of natural light. The central room of the cottage is quaint and cute, and though it's dark, we didn't mind. The vibe was cozy. This place is easy walking distance to the town of Woodstock, so we didn't have to do much driving after our trip up here, which I really appreciated. We loved eating at Woodstock's Tinker Taco place in the evening: it had a bar, great food, and seats by the stream. The house also has maps, brochures, books, magazines and beach towels. Everything was super clean and easy to find. Thanks for a great stay.

We felt at home and comfortable instantly !

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Mary's accommodating cottage. It has EVERYTHING (there was even garlic in the fridge for stirfries with the available local produce).It is convenient not to have to bring along all that you need. Very close (walking distance)to this nice little town and we were able to do so much in our week there, we hiked Overlook MT. and Echo Lake; Cooper Lake; a trail ride at Mohonk MT. House in the Shawangunks ; Opus 40 is incredible; the town flea market is fun; Saugerties and their lighthouse was interesting; Olana in Hudson was great ; we did not lose any weight as the restaurants all were calling, but we also cooked some meals as the kitchen had all we needed to do so; we also did some RELAXING as time does not pass too quickly in Woodstock ! I also suspect if whatever you need is not in the cottage Mary will help you out with that as she is truly a sweet spirit. The kids are asking when we will return, there is so much more to do. Thank you for the wonderful memories, Mary. Love........just us graneys

Wonderful stay with my family

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Margaret's Cottage over Easter weekend and had a wonderful experience. The cottage was spacious, clean and had many nice amenities. It was on a quiet street within walking distance to town, which was very convenient. Mary left a basket of snacks and drinks for us upon our arrival. There was also a cabinet of balls and games that my toddler loved playing with all weekend. There was a private front and backyard area with seating where we could sit outside and enjoy the weather and birds coming to the feeders. We would love to go back and stay again.
