Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Saugerties - Woodstock Design Waterfront,

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)


This newly remodeled private waterfront cottage is just 3

minutes from the center of Saugerties, NY and 15 minutes

from Woodstock, NY. Enjoy the best of both towns: specialty

shops and boutiques, delectable food, farmers markets, live

music and glorious scenery.

The 2-bedroom, 1-bath cottage is a spacious, serene and

comfortably elegant retreat. It’s ingeniously tailored for a

romantic getaway, a family gathering, or for two friends

on a shopping-fishing-antiquing-hiking or whatever you-

cook-up weekend. It's roomy enough for a crowd, yet still

cozy and private enough for a revitalizing artist or writer’s


No need to sacrifice urban elegance for country charm,

because here you truly have both. The house is an authentic

1930’s cottage, now airily restyled and open, with the

sophistication of a luxed-out loft. It was the beloved

childhood family cottage of former L.A. stylist Daisy Bolle,

current owner of Hudson Valley fashion mecca DIG, and

Daisy’s smashing taste is reflected in every detail of this

beautiful remodel. The house still belongs to her parents,

Mike and Robin Kramer, longtime owners of the two hottest

clothing stores in Woodstock: Woodstock Trading Post and

Woodstock Design. Luxury and cozy comfort are in this

family’s DNA.

Each room has been thoughtfully designed and decorated

to invite the outdoors in, surrounding you with resort-

style comfort. Enormous windows and French doors to the

stunning deck provide an all-day display of the renowned

ever-changing Hudson Valley light. Keep them open to savor

evening breezes and glowing sunsets, and then light a cozy

fire in the living room fireplace, which you can also see from

the bedroom.

This rare property includes direct access to the Esopus

Creek, famous for summer and winter sports. Take a dip

or launch a kayak from your private dock, onto the smooth

glide of the creek. Once there, let the world slip by as your

stress slides away. Take a photo safari up this Hudson Valley

Nile, capturing shots of nesting egrets, cranes and swans.

Nature provides a daily surprise in this sought-after

Hudson Valley setting, known for its mountains, woods,

and meandering rivers. Poets and painters will find enough

inspiration to last the rest of the year. You might even nab

a prime trophy bass. The gentle lapping of the creek will

serenade evening star–gazing and cocktails on the deck, or

a night of barbeque and games with the kids. Linger over

lattes and the morning papers while you plan the day’s

adventures. You may just decide relaxing on the deck is all

the adventure you need.

When it’s time for sleep, sink into sumptuous king-sized

beds in both bedrooms. One of the two couches in the

living room also folds out into a queen mattress. Linens

are provided for you, including silk-like soft Beechwood

sheets, down blankets and pillows, and fluffy bath sheet-

sized towels laundered with Seventh Generation unscented

detergent. The bath features radiant-heat floors, iridescent

artisan tiles, heated towel racks and a floating vanity.

The pantry is stocked with gourmet basics like organic

coffee, tea, honey and oatmeal, and the fridge holds choice

mustards, bbq sauce and other surprises. Whether you’re a

seasoned cook or just want to whip up some smoothies, the

kitchen — with its gleaming industrial chic appliances and

a five-burner gas stove with convection oven — will satisfy

your appetite for customized, supreme efficiency.

You’ll be cozily secluded, tucked onto a quiet lane in

Saugerties, recently named by Frommer’s as one of

America's 10 Coolest Small Towns. Saugerties — hilly and

rich with hidden treasures like upscale breakfast joints,

antique shops, places to enjoy micro brews or perfect

cappuccinos, is a funky blend of historic Catskill charm and

local artistic flair. For horse fans, HITS summer events are

fast becoming the talk of the town.

Woodstock is a scenic 12-minute drive, offering miles of

mountain trails, a Tibetan Buddhist monastery, day trips

for picnics, secluded swimming holes, hiking and biking, a

rich rock ‘n roll history and unique restaurants and shops,

including a huge weekend flea market.

Additional features include:

Full HD 120 Channel Cable Package with premium channels, including

HBO, Showtime, Starz, Cinemax, EPIX, On Demand, and Netflix!

Living Room has 40” Samsung smart TV with Netflix & whole-house DVR

DVD player.

Bedrooms both have flat screen TVs, full cable. DVR in master bedroom.

Whole-house DVR playback box in second bedroom 2.

Oh, and we’re POOCH-friendly!

cards accepted and welcome.

About Steve Kramer


On August 6, 2001 I wrote a story of us buying our weekend house in Saugerties. All our friends thought we were crazy to buy a vacation house 15 minutes from our house in Woodstock.

It was in 1992 and Saugerties was still a town that was down on its luck. There were a lot of empty stores. Our house, only one mile from town,

seemed a million miles away with the deck cantilevered over the Esopus Creek.

In my story I told of happily buying antiques and chatckas from the stores in town for our house that had been built from a kit from Sears in the 30’s.

Fast forward to 2014. Daisy, our stylish daughter, who had spent 15 years in LA, came home with her husband Van and five month old daughter Starla. They stayed in our cottage while they established their boutique DIG in Saugerties. After a year they bought their own house on the creek.

This year Daisy and Van decided that our house needed an update. They wanted our house to be totally cool, down to the Jonathan Adler dishes that they sell in their store. With their taste and our credit card the house was totally transformed. There’s a smart TV that gets every channel plus Netflix, YouTube, Face Book and anything else you can think of.

There’s a new stylish kitchen and the bathroom is ultra-luxurious with its radiant heated floor and heated towel rack. The small windows in the master bedroom were replaced with French doors to the deck. A larger window was put in the second bedroom that allows a full view up the creek. The wood floors were sanded and a high gloss finish makes them glow.

continued below.....

Steve Kramer purchased this house in 1992

Why Steve Kramer chose Hudson Valley

The final touch to remove any signs of the old place was painting the wood ceiling white.

Since we bought the house the land across the creek became the Esopus Creek Conservancy

Thanks to the marvels of the internet (which didn’t exist when we bought the house in 1992) we are able to rent it out by the week when we are not using it.

Brains or luck? We were thinking of buying in Phoencia, which probably would have gotten washed away during Irene. Saugerties has become one of the ten coolest towns in the U.S.

I think it was destiny.

We loved the water for kayaking, swimming and hearing the water as we doze off to sleep. We always loved sitting on the deck or kayaking watching the changing fall foliage

What makes this house unique

Huge private dock that is right on the water (perfect for swimming or kayaking)

Thanks so much for letting us stay in your home. It was really so perfect. Lots of great touch and style. We can't wait to come back some day..

My family and I had a wonderful time in Saugerties! The house was so great! Comfortable and clean. My daughters enjoyed swimming and kayaking.. We were there for the horse show, it took only about 7 minutes to get to the show grounds everyday! So easy! the home is also close to all the great places to eat and shop. It was a great week! To top it off my daughter and her horse won Champion!!

Very nice home, great location

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed there during a chilly April but still has a great time. You can fish off the dock and there's a local place that will deliver and pick up kayaks. Grocery stores nearby and Woodstock is just a short drive. Other than the inability to block the intensely bright morning sun if you're sleeping on the pullout sofa, no complaints. Was well stocked, too.

super nice place, done soup to nuts in high end everything, furniture, kitchenware, you name it. tons of storage and not a personal knick knack, photo or belonging of any kind on the property - because the owners do not live there any part of the year, it is free of the feel of you being in someone's home. and not a peace sign pillow or hanging in sight, no doves sitting on guitar necks, etc - which is near impossible in this neck of the woods... very very tasteful. with a gorgeous stretch of the esopus right out the back door and woods on the opposite bank.

Relaxing long weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband, dog, and I recently spent a long weekend at Steve's lovely home on the Esopus creek. The house was very comfortable and clean, nice towels and linens; we were at home immediately. Such a nice touch to arrive to a fridge stocked with bread, eggs, jam, and milk for breakfast. We enjoyed unseasonably warm weather in November, and loved sitting outside on the beautiful deck, playing Scrabble with a bottle of wine one afternoon. Saugerties was an adorable town just a few minutes drive away with a few great restaurants and shops. Very close proximity to incredible hiking and skiing that we'd like to return for.

A Glorious Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here four times over the past several years and look forward to many more visits. The recent renovations make this an unbelievably comfortable and classy spot to unwind for a few days, with the Esopus Creek as your backyard. Views from both the deck and the living room are stupendous and amenities are first-rate.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property has it all. The amenities were modern and perfect. The views were beautiful. Every little detail was well maintained. The bread, milk, eggs, fresh jam and butter in the fridge were over the top and a wonderful treat. The property is conveniently located to downtown. I would recommend this place to anyone and we will be definitely be going back!
