RoTW: Saugerties Farmhouse, $1,600/mo.

5 highwoods road saugerties ny

Behold: A truly dreamy farmhouse for rent in Saugerties. A grand-and-a-half won’t get you much in the boroughs, but out in the country, it will go a long way. The house has all the benchmarks of a rustic farmhouse: Hand-hewn ceiling beams, wide plank floors, and a brick fireplace that keeps a good portion of the house cozy-warm. Pretty meadow views, as well. Located on close to a half-acre equidistant between Saugerties and Woodstock.

Saugerties Barn w/Pond, $999,000

57 smith road saugerties ny

This 19th century barn was converted back in the 1970s, but it’s interior reminds us more of a drafty Gothic castle than a 70s pad. Note the wrought-iron fencing around the balcony overlooking the living room area, the chandeliers, and woo boy, how about that behemoth brick fireplace? Furthermore, it contains a positively dreamy, “Princess trapped in a tower” bedroom complete with its own brick fireplace and high, beamed ceilings. The house also includes slate and reclaimed wood floors and stained glass windows, as well as 15 acres of land with a gazebo and a pond. A masterpiece of barn conversion.

Car-Free Country House: Saugerties Victorian, $204,800

27 elm street saugerties ny

Thanks to our extensive research into the UCAT bus system in and around Ulster County, we can finally add Saugerties to our pantheon of car-free living possibilities. This lovely Victorian is located on Elm Street, right down the street from where the UCAT stops in the village on Market Street next to the village post office. Such a pretty house, well-maintained, in a great neighborhood walking distance to everything in the village, including the elementary school. Lot size is small but fenced in, and it includes an enclosed porch and a detached garage.

You could do okay without a car in Saugerties, since the village is walkable, there are places to eat, get coffee, pick up pet supplies, secure a bottle of wine, do yoga, and grab groceries (there’s a natural food store on Main Street if you prefer that over Price Chopper). And if you want to get out of Dodge, or you commute to the city, you could theoretically take the UCAT to Kingston and grab the bus to the Poughkeepsie train station from there. It’s worth a call to UCAT to find out how to make it happen at 845-340-3333.

Upstater Destinations: Woodstock Film Festival, Oct 3-6

 woodstock film festival

Upstate New York is truly the place to be during the fall. You’ve got your pretty leaves, and you’ve got your Garlic Festival. You’ve got your U-Pick trips to various orchards for way too many apples (which, this year, apparently, means you’ll be picking those apples in 80 degree weather). You’ve got Restaurant Week coming up next month, and, you’ve got the Woodstock Film Festival this weekend.
