The space

The house was originally built by a marble sculptor (my father) to be his studio. It is a very unique Woostock post and beam house, constructed of local lumber. The rooms are huge and sunny, echoing the beautiful space outside. The house is very open, with the rooms flowing into one another.

One thing to note is that the two bedrooms don't have an actual door between them, but rather a short staircase and a lovely velvet curtain. This makes the house perfect for a family, but perhaps not ideal for sharing between couples.

Guest access

There is a beautiful crystal clear stream just a short (but little bit steep) hike from the house, with a wonderful swimming hole at the edge of the property. Woodstock is 15 minutes away, Wilson State Park is just 2 miles away, and Bellayre and Hunter Mountain Ski Resorts are just 25-30 minutes away.

Interaction with guests

We are a phone call away and have a caretaker that can handle any problems. We can either arrange to be there for a key hand-over or just tell you where the key is.

The neighbourhood

You will love the seclusion and astounding beauty of the private views. There are a TON of things to do in the area like shopping or enjoying the wonderful restaurants in Woodstock and Rhinebeck across the river, hiking up Overlook Mountain or Tannersbark Trail in Phoenicia. Tubing on the Esopus is always a lot of fun, and canoeing at Wilson State Park is great too. The autumn foliage is unparalleled and taking a spin on the train foliage tours is a great Fall pastime.

Getting around

One needs a car to get around the area.

We absolutely loved our stay in this house! It feels very secluded and private with a gorgeous view. The house itself is very charming, special, comfortable and spacious. Everyone (4 adults and 3 kids under 4) enjoyed the disco ball and we had quite a few dance parties. The little playground outside was nice for the kids although they ended up mostly playing happily with gravel, rocks, leaves and sticks. There are tons of books and games in the house and the kitchen is stocked with all cooking essentials. This is not a cookie cutter house at all, it's different in a very good way. We were two families staying there together and the only negative would be that you have to pass through one bedroom to get to the other one. It didn't bother us though. Amoreena was super helpful, friendly and responsive to any questions we had. The location is great, close to everything you need.

This house is beautiful. We had so much fun! There are a lot of great hiking trails in the area and we came just as the leaves were changing. Amoreena was always available to answer our questions through call or text when we needed her and made us feel very welcome. Would definitely stay here again.

This was a unique cabin/house in the woods! Very private. Perfect for a real getaway! The king size bed was very comfortable and it was a treat to wake up in the morning and see the trees out the 6 large skylights/windows! Amoreena was very welcoming and available on the phone, as was Bill when he had to give me some direction on plugging in the deck lights. If you often get up during the night, be aware that the bathroom is down one and one half flights of steps from the master bedroom. The listing is very accurate and the pictures show you just what you are getting. You will love this place!

We had a great stay at Amoreena's place! As other reviewers have mentioned, it is a very unique house. The disco ball and jukebox were really fun. The gorgeous deck got lots of morning sun and offered fantastic views of the mountains. It comfortably slept six, although the rooms are definitely not private so it best suits a group of friends or close family. The location is also fantastic. It's a short drive into Phoenicia and Woodstock but feels totally remote and is very quiet. It was a great home base for our weekend in the Catskills!

Absolutely fantastic. Attentive and available hosts. The view is beautiful. The house is VERY cool, has lots of charm. My wife and I loved it. It rained Saturday night so we loved staying in to watch a movie. 10/10 absolutely would stay there again. Phoenicia diner and Main Street Phoenicia were great. We also hiked to the overlook which was great.

I am a Creative Director for an ad agency and my family and I live in up-state NY. I love to share the house my dad (marble sculptor) built with his own hands - it's truly unique and I hope others love it as I do!
