Woodstock Historic Artist Estate - The Carriage House

Lakefront vacation home with kitchen and patio
**featured as freshgrub unique property:

If you want to fall asleep to the stereo lullaby of frog croaks while watching the spectacle of fireflies competing with stars, this is the place.

The property is within 10 minute walking distance through the neighboring Comeau Property, a nature preserve with hiking trails to town. The Cottage House faces the stream, waterfall, pond and great lawn on one side and the woods and field on the other. The house is a freshly architect-renovated 800sft two bedroom, one bath, sleeping 5. We provide linens, towels and other necessities.

Frederick Dana Marsh, father of the well known Social Realist painter Reginald Marsh, married Mabel Van Alstyne in 1930, starting a notable artistic partnership as the Van Alstyne Marsh Collection that was later acquired by the Smithsonian Institution. Their home was unique for Woodstock—'It was in the background of the Mona Lisa; a Van Gogh landscape; a train ride through Tuscany—ball shaped junipers; a pond that bracketed the house; expansive lawns; a gathering of birches. But most of all, big cone shaped cedar trees. It is a marvelous thing to look up at backlit clouds at sunset—see the intrusion of cedar peaks, pointing up like soft missles and the erratic flight of mosquito catcher bats making ninety degree turns down the channels between the trees. A photographer friend was here last weekend and I told her, “Don’t worry about framing the picture, just point and shoot. The landscaper framed it for you seventy years ago.” ' Here I quote Austin Metze, who knows this piece of land long before it put a spell on us.

To be there is to inhabit an idyllic painting. Sit in the property's own Hidden Chair Waterfall or chill at the secluded sandy beach swim hole a one minute stroll away through enchanted woods, take a hike up Milk Mountain or up the trails of the neighboring nature preserve for a Sunday brunch in town and visit to the flea market. Or just read a good book under a cypress tree.

The Cottage House is on the same property as the Pond House, listed on VRBO vrbo #373377. Both houses are very private. There are three houses next to each other, the Cottage House, the Manor House (owner occupied), and the Pond House. The Cottage House faces the stream and the great lawn on one side and the woods and field on the other.

Liked: Cleanliness
Tranquil and beautiful private getaway with full stream access on Brook and only minutes from town!
The owners of this property were kind and welcoming. The house was well appointed with most kitchen and bathroom goods one might need. The place was immaculately cleaned as promised due to the COVID-19 health concerns. The decor of this house Is chic and interesting. Great collection of books. Bring a stepstool for the shower/bathtub. Other than that, this place was perfect for both a romantic and social time get away from city life!

Lovely romantic getaway close to Woodstock
The place was clean and very cozy. Nin was super responsive to all our questions and it was great when she passed by to make sure that everything was to our liking. We will definitely come back. The fireplace is a great addition to the feeling of place and there was plenty of firewood provided. I would definitely recommend the place.

Helene B., Philadelphia, Pa

Elegant, artistic and quiet.
Very private and beautiful. The land is exquisite. The apartment is elegant, artistic and perfect for couples or a small family. We enjoyed making meals together in the kitchen and having fires in the wood burning stove and watching the wildlife. The owner was lovely and attentive if/when necessary but otherwise we had all the privacy we could ask for. It was a quick drive into town (less than 10mintues from driveway to parking), the area is INCREDIBLE. This was truly a memerable and special place. Enchanting is not an over sell, I wouldn’t miss it if I were you.

relaxing and comfortable
We took a few days break from staying in New York. The place was very homely and comfortable. The cooking facilities and beds were good. The setting was absolutely beautiful with the town river in the front yard area. A leisurely 30 minute walk along the river to the town. The owner dropped in to say hello. She was very friendly and informative. I would recommend this place.
