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.
