Brook Cottage Too is ideally located on a shared and secluded property at the end of a private lane, yet it’s just a few blocks from the center of Woodstock and the NYC bus (no car needed!). You can walk to Woodstock’s local attractions (including parks and hiking trails) ~ or you can just stay home and relax in your own private oasis of peace and beauty. The cottage is immaculately clean and available for longer-term rentals, as well as short-term stays.
Brook Cottage Too occupies the west wing of an authentic 1928 artist’s residence/studio, featuring oversize north-light windows (with views of Overlook Mountain, the highest peak in the region) and south-facing skylights with forest and brook views.
Enter your private fenced patio through a double-door latched gate. Old native bluestone paves the curved walkway and outdoor dining area (framed by gardens of evergreen and flowering shrubs), while smooth river stones surround the gas-fueled fire pit. You can prepare meals using your new Weber gas grill and dine al fresco on the outdoor table shaded by a canopy of trees. At night, light the gas-fueled fire pit and snuggle by a fire under the stars.
Step from the patio through a covered doorway into your spacious and light-filled open plan “great room", which features a brand new fully-equipped country kitchen (with a Caesarstone quartz countertop, a quiet Miele dishwasher and new stainless appliances) that overlooks the living room (with an L-shaped slipcovered sofa, oversize north-light windows, a wall-mounted flat-screen “smart TV", and a cozy gas-fueled fire stove), and opens to a windowed dining area overlooking the patio gardens.
A skylit hallway leads to a spa-like bathroom with a Caesarstone counter and porcelain tub with a rain shower ~ under a cathedral ceiling with a large skylight! The skylight bathes the room with sun/moonlight, while you bathe under the treetops and clouds!
At the end of the hallway, climb quiet carpeted stairs to the full 2nd floor bedroom, which features a king bed (with a high-end mattress and luxurious 100% organic cotton fair-trade linens) under a large north-light window with mountain views (and black-out shades), a comfortable sitting area, a large remote-controlled skylight (also with black-out shades), a romantic electric fire stove, wide board wood floors with a hand-loomed artisan area rug, and a quiet remote-controlled AC.
Brook Cottage Too was architect-designed and has been lovingly renovated and beautifully decorated by the designer-owner and a master craftsman with great care and attention to detail, as evidenced by the hand-plastered walls with softly rounded corners; natural woodwork refinished to a silky sheen; brand new wood and porcelain floors; state-of-the-art systems and appliances (including highly efficient and quiet ACs, dishwasher, and washer/dryer); all new matching sets of dishware, bakeware, pots and pans, cutlery and utensils; 100% organic cotton fair-trade luxury bed linens and plush bath towels, etc. In other words, Brook Cottage Too shares and upholds the same high standards of design, quality, comfort and luxury as Brook Cottage (property #950862), the much-loved and highly popular 5-star rated vacation rental that shares the driveway and parking areas.
Although Brook Cottage and Brook Cottage Too are totally separate and independent semi-detached rentals (with entrances and private patios on different sides of the building), which are each ideally suited for romantic getaways and personal retreats, they may also be rented together by groups of friends or extended family members who want to be together while still maintaining their own private spaces.
NO CAR NECESSARY
Brook Cottage Too is easy walking distance (just 5-10 minutes) to everything the village of Woodstock has to offer: popular restaurants/cafes, galleries, boutiques and specialty shops, live music and theater performances, hiking trails, bike rentals, etc. In other words, you don't need a car! Instead, you can take the Adirondack Trailways bus from NYC or NJ to the Woodstock village green, and walk just 5 minutes to Brook Cottage Too, your luxury Woodstock getaway at the edge of the village!
Live Woodstock music can sometimes be heard at the cottage in the evening (7 - 10 pm) coming from the outside patio of the local favorite Station Bar & Curio, which serves craft beers, cocktails, and light meals in a small one-of-a-kind historic former train depot located about a block away.
Well-behaved, house-broken and crate-trained dogs are considered ~ please ask. Please note that dogs must be crated when left alone in the cottage, and leashed when outdoors. A $75/week pet fee per dog applies..
