4 Bedroom, 3 Bath Log Home Nestled Between Woodstock, Hudson, HITS, Skiing
Log Cabin on serene park-like 4+ acres nestled in the woods in the perfect location, right between Woodstock and Saugerties at the base of Overlook mountain, minutes from either town, the Hudson River, HITS, skiing, hiking, swimming, antique stores, restaurants, and, of course, music history.
Located 100 miles up the Thruway from Manhattan, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath house is cozy, yet boasts a lodge-like great room you'll never want to leave. Wood-burning stove, fireplace, massive deck, outdoor fire pit, and plenty of open land and gorgeous trees (lots of 50-70 year old cedars, and plenty of pines, oak, and maple) to soak in the nature. Full kitchen, separate wet bar, rustic dining room, large great room, music loft, and plenty of charming accents. You can see Overlook mountain from the grounds (and from the house when the leaves have fallen), as well as the small lake / pond out back and small waterfall to the side on neighboring properties (and you hear the waterfall after rains and when the snow melts).
In the last few months on the property, we've seen (many) deer, rabbits, lots and lots of birds, ravens, hawks, frogs, and even a pregnant snapping turtle. Note that we do use a service to keep that all outside. :-)
The house is in the foothills of the Catskill mountains, a short 5 mile drive to the famous Woodstock village, or the award-winning town of Saugerties. Adorable eating and shopping in both. Hunter Mountain, HITS, Opus 40, the Hudson River, and plenty of other things to see and to are quick drives away (see the details below). We love this house in all seasons.
We are one road over from Big Pink, the legendary house that Bob Dylan & The Band lived in and recorded "Music from Big Pink" and "Basement Tapes" in (yes, it was actually Saugerties). Robbie Robertson also lived and recorded in another house, formerly a quarryman residence, just down Houtman a bit. And Levon Helm's barn, the site of the famous Rambles (which still go on), is a few miles away.
The house has 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms
2 queens (1 on Ground Floor, 1 2nd Floor), 1 full (2nd Floor), 2 twins (2nd Floor)
2 Full Bathrooms on Ground Floor – (One Handicapped Accessible) + 1 Bathroom on 2nd Floor.
Amenities include Wet Bar, 2 Fridges, One Large 70" Television equipped with Cable, DVD player, Wifi Internet, Wood Pellet Stove, Wood Burning Fireplace, Washer/ Dryer, Enormous Back Deck (1500 sf), Front Sitting Porch with overhang to protect from rain/ snow and a Security System.

About Mike & Rena Jacobs
We bought this house for ourselves and we love it, trying to spend as much time here as we can.
Mike & Rena Jacobs purchased this House in 2014
Why Mike & Rena Jacobs chose Saugerties
We spend a lot of time up here, and we simply haven't found a property this large and wooded with as much cleared area as we have., and some pretty amazing trees spreadh out over it. It is the perfect combination for us. Add in a log cabin with a fantastic great room, and being directly between our two favorite towns, it is a pretty magical combination.
What makes this House unique
A log cabin in the perfect location, surrounded by some amazing grounds and beautiful foliage.

excellent property in a great location!
Stayed here as a family of five for a week in late December. The property is great, and exactly as described. Lots of space, very clean and with all the amenities you need for a great stay. The living room is excellent (large, lots of light) and we spent a lot of our time there! The outdoor patio looks amazing and i'm sure it would be great for a summer trip...
Location is very convenient - close to the towns and also close to skiing at Hunter Mountain.
The owners were very responsive and quick to get back with answers to any questions (although they provided a lot of information pre-arrival, so we didn't really have that many questions!).
We had a great time and would love to stay there again!
excellent house, great location, very comfortable, lots of amenities
stayed here for a week as a family of 5.
great location - beautiful property with a lot of outdoor space; we stayed in the winter but the huge outdoor patio seems like it would be a great addition in the summer! convenient to both Saugerties and Woodstock towns, and close to hunter and windham for some skiing.
the description is very accurate - roomy house, more than enough space for us with all the extra bedrooms. the great room is "great' - very big and roomy, with lots of light... and the wood pellet stove was nice in the winter. we spent most of our day in there. amenities are all updated with TV, wifi, etc.
owners were very responsive and friendly and got back quickly with responses to any questions.
we had a great time and would definitely recommend it!
log cabin by woodstock
We had a great stay, the listing is very accurate. Fall is a great time to go, the leaves were beautiful and there is hiking near by.
The space was very comfortable, and there was nothing more to be needed. The kitchen was well equipped and the living room was super cozy.
Will definitely want to come back
Nestled directly between the historic towns of Woodstock and Saugerties (which is on the esposus, a major inlet off the Hudson a few thousand feet away)
