The Zena Farmhouse is a recently renovated 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath farmhouse on 3 acres, located in the Woodstock hamlet of Zena, where everywhere is just minutes away. A wood burning fireplace in the living room, a woodstove in the family room, a modern kitchen just waiting for a cook, and a great deck and yard out back for relaxation and play. Best of all, the Zena Farmhouse is close to the center of Woodstock, Saugerties, and Kingston! Children and dogs are welcome! (One-time pet fee of $50.)

The space

Located so conveniently, the Zena Farmhouse is only minutes away from the center of Woodstock, the most famous little town in the world! A few minutes east will take you to Saugerties for some fine antiquing or the horse shows at HITS. And Kingston is a fast trip to the south, where you can enjoy the waterfront, see a blockbuster movie, or--if you just must—visit the mall! And Rhinebeck and Bard College are just a hop, skip, and jump across nearby Hudson River.

Inside you feel that you’re million miles away from the rest of the world while you’re actually quite close to all the culture, food, and fun that Woodstock and the Hudson Valley have to offer.

Built in 1874, the Zena Farmhouse has been tastefully renovated. Set on 3 acres, the house has retained the character of its time, but it has been updated with all the modern amenities. You’ll find hardwood floors and the original banister and stairs, but the kitchen is thoroughly modern, with a 5-burner gas stove, a microwave, dishwasher, and plenty of period-style cabinets for storage of a wide collection of cookware and utensils.

The ambiance is very welcoming. The house is bright with light yet warm and cozy. Can you feel hugged by a house? With this one you can. And the Zena Farmhouse is equally comfortable for one couple, or for a large family gathering.

The common areas are varied and plentiful: The wood-burning fireplace in the living room invites get-togethers and conversation, and the family room with wood burning stove invites total relaxation in front of the wide-screen TV. If you want to read a book or have to do some work while you’re here, there is a comfortably furnished office with a desk, and bookshelves filled of books that you are welcome to enjoy during your stay. But one of the best spots for conviviality is the wooden dining table—handmade specifically for this house many years ago and constructed in situ. This lovely table seats 8, and provides a beautiful view of the backyard and hillside.

All three bedrooms are on the second floor, along with the newly renovated full bath. (The half-bath is downstairs.) The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, and the two guest bedrooms are each furnished with full-size beds. The house sleeps 6 adults comfortably.

Out back is a wide expanse of backyard, with lots of room to run and play. Or you can enjoy the very private deck for a bar-b-que on a relaxed summer evening.

Zena farmhouse has all the comforts of home. Very quiet, cozy and comfortable. A great big kitchen, dining and family room. Nicely decorated and welcoming. A/C is appreciated for hot weather. Great location, close to Woodstock. Deer stop by to visit. It was a short stay but very peaceful and enjoyable.

This is a lovely farmhouse, updated with modern amenities - Nest temperature control, HBO etc. etc. - that make it a very comfortable place to stay. It's also in a lovely, quiet and green area, but still very close to Woodstock itself for the conveniences of shops and things to do. Our group of three adults + 1 kid had a great time. The beds were really comfortable, and the place was super clean and welcoming. The kitchen had everything we needed in terms of implements and basic supplies to whip up some delicious meals. There were ample towels, blankets etc etc to be comfortable. Our host was very accommodating - I would have no hesitation of recommending Zena farm house to friends.

I highly recommend this spacious home if you want to be close to Woodstock, but not right downtown with tourists and traffic. The house has a huge back patio and multiple fireplaces that are well-stocked with firewood. We look forward to returning!

This was the perfect spot for a relaxing weekend in the Catskills. It was clean and inviting with a great kitchen and living room. Town was only a 5 minute drive. Highly recommend!

Just returned home after a great Thanksgiving weekend stay at Zena house. The house was perfect for our extended family including dogs. The house was comfortable with plenty of space and a great kitchen for preparing our holiday dinner. Beautiful area and close to Woodstock village.
