Woodstock Cottage, $395/night

woodstock stone cottage

Here’s a rental we found thanks to one of our readers, who also owns the property. The Woodstock stone cottage is off Wittenberg Road, just minutes from Wilson campground and is situated on more than 12 acres, so privacy seems virtually assured. Of course, the first thing to catch our eye is the floor-to-ceiling picture window in the living room. Also of note are all of the little places around the property to escape with a book and a sketch pad. Includes a stone patio for BBQing, hot tub, mountain bikes, hammock, and wifi, and the description says that a swimming lake is a 10 minute walk away. Accommodate 8 guests divided up over 4 bedrooms. Only nightly rates are available, but long-term renters are welcome, so says the Homeaway.com description. A quick glance at the availability shows a lot of weekends blocked out, but plenty of weekdays available through the summer months.

Woodstock Hilltop Cottage, $285,000

New to the listings, this 3 bed/2 bath cottage in Woodstock has got some nice views of the treetops and beyond from big screened in porch. Inside, there’s an easy, open flow and a cheerful brightness that we find appealing. Cottage includes a separate studio with running water, so there’s guest house potential there. Or, don’t share and keep it as your studio. Nothing wrong with that. The cottage and studio are situated on 2.6 acres of land in the hamlet of Bearsville, about 10 minutes north of the village of Woodstock.

Woodstock Contemporary, $550,000

Compared to yesterday’s Platinum LEED certified beauty in Tivoli, this house in Woodstock isn’t quite as impressive with lots of green bells and whistles. However, the listing touts a brand new high efficiency heating system, which is nothing to sneeze at, plus there’s plenty of land to start your own organic garden, so it’s sustainable in that regard. Throw in a couple of wood stoves for extra heating, and we give it our Eco Week stamp of approval. Other cool stuff: A rustic artist studio that had us drooling, and an in-ground pool and outdoor shower.

Woodstock Arts & Crafts, $1.295 million

79 yerry hill road woodstock ny

A little backstory: For the past five days, I’ve had about 16 tabs open on my browser, all of them a different property, all of the properties very desirable. I kept all the tabs open in sort of a state of denial, thinking that I wouldn’t actually have to pick between them once Friday rolls around. And yet, here we are, and it’s Friday. I was faced with choices: An ivy-covered Mediterranean-style house in Accord, a massive, 5,000 loft/warehouse/factory space also in Accord, a secluded getaway in Barryville, and over a dozen of other options that could’ve easily taken this spot. But instead, I went with this Woodstock arts and crafts on 8+ acres that includes a guest house and pool. Why? Well, just take a look at the pictures. Like Mary Poppins, it’s practically perfect in every way, with a mix of French countryside sensibilities and lofty modern touches. And it also has a treehouse. Once again, I let the seven year old who lives in my head call the shots. This time, I think she was right on the money.
