Joy Cottage is located on a quiet country road between Woodstock and Saugerties. Woodstock, less than 2 miles away, boasts a robust arts community, shopping, restaurants and dining, parks, antiquing, live music and theater, flea markets, and naturalist tours. Set well back from the road, our 9.5 acres boast a lovely private park-like setting, including woods, meadows, a pond and a beautiful swimming pool.

Joy Cottage is the home to two cats and three birds, so sadly, we cannot accommodate pets.

The space

The master suite is located on the main floor. It is bright and cheerful with a bathroom (shared with your hosts when both suites are occupied), sitting room and french doors that open out onto a furnished deck in the summer - a perfect place to read and relax! You'll have a view of the horses on the neighboring horse farm and hear the delightful sound of water from the soothing fountain outside your window (season permitting). There is another suite available for additional guests, as well as a large screened-in porch which has both dining and living space.

The Cottage has extensive mosaic and hand tile work throughout, including a rain-forrest shower with hand-painted tiles in the Master Bath.

Guest access

You are welcome to use the in-ground pool, extensive decks, patios (all furnished for your comfort) and hot-tub (hot tub in winter, pool in summer) or hike in our 9.5 acres of woods and meadow.

Use of the kitchen should be arranged in advance with your hosts.

Joy Cottage offers you the ultimate in privacy and peace.

Interaction with guests

We will happily provide local directions to ski areas, shopping, restaurants and antiquing. You set the degree of interaction. You're welcome to sit with a glass of wine or tea in the evening by the fire (indoor or outdoor) and chat about your day, or just relax by yourself.

Other things to note

Joy Cottage has an aviary in the front garden so our birds may enjoy the warm weather and sun. Don't worry, we don't leave them out at night.

You are welcome to use the in-ground pool and hot-tub (hot tub in winter, pool in summer) or hike in our 9.5 acres of woods and meadow.

Please let us know if you wish to use the kitchen.

Robin made our stay so comfortable! The location, the landscape, the beautiful uniqueness of her home, the careful and thoughtful touches for us as guests... all added up to a wonderful and relaxing stay. The only thing we hadn't realized was that the shared bath was actually in our bedroom, but it turned out to be a non-issue because of how considerate and polite our hosts were : ) Again, such a calm and comfortable stay at Robin's lovely home. ❤️

Robin and Peter were amazing hosts! It is obviously they put a lot of care and love into their upstate home and are excited to share it with others. The house is beautifully decorated and well-equipped for a comfortable stay. Their pool and grounds are stunning. Our hosts were helpful and friendly, but also gave us our privacy. My friend and I were in relaxation heaven! Thank you both for a wonderful stay!!

A great Airbnb experience. The house and grounds are beautiful. There's a zen calmness to the place. The pool is tremendous on a hot day. The hosts are nice and accommodating. If you're an animal lover this place would be of interest to you with. Highest recommendation.

Robin and Peter were fantastic hosts. We had a great getaway for the holiday--pool, fire pit, cats, birds, and the beautiful landscape. They made us comfortable while we were there, and very easy to communicate with. Highly recommend, and will definitely be back!

Peter and I fell in love with Joy Cottage and its peaceful, private setting over 20 years ago. We are avid scuba divers and have traveled the world, with a particular fondness for Southeast Asia. We enjoy experiencing different cultures, food often living on small sailing vessels and lodges. Over time, we have filled our home with artifacts from our travels.

I also enjoy music, reading, quiet times with our pets and creating mosaic pieces and have created mosaics throughout the cottage. Peter likes to joke that I would tile the ceilings I could.

Peter manages a scuba shop in New York City, teaches diving, and is an accomplished wood worker when at the Cottage.

We love animals and have several cats and birds in our home. As a result, we must ask that you kindly leave your pets at home. Assuring a peaceful and stress-free experience for all is our goal!
