About this listing

Come stay at our homestead!

While only 10 minutes from Woodstock, the village of Saugerties, the Hudson River, or Horse Shows in the Sun (HITS), our log home is in the woods and very private.

The space

Welcome to our home. Our house is warm and inviting, we have been told by many guests they feel like they are at home when they stay here. It will definitely feel a little like home because it is a home, our home. We would love for you to stay.

There is a wonderful harvest table suited for all meals and a fully equipped kitchen. There are also dining tables outside on the sundeck and inside the cozy screened-in porch. We also have an outdoor grill for your convenience.

There are also many wonderful restaurants within a 15 minute drive. A listing of restaurants and directions are provided.

Downstairs, our master bedroom has a king size bed and private bath. Upstairs we have 3 more bedrooms, one with a king size bed and a twin bed, and two with queen size beds. There is also a full bath upstairs. Linens and towels are provided. Portacrib is also available.

Please be sure to read our house rules.
Thank you!

Guest access

In season there is a pool with surrounding deck for sunbathing and listening to music on outdoor speakers.

On the four acres we raise chickens and goats, as well as a vegetable and herb garden. Feel free to collect fresh eggs for your breakfast, or fresh lettuce and vegetables for lunch or dinner in our seasonal garden! Bring an old pair of shoes and help us feed the chickens and goats!

Since the Hudson River and country lakes are so close, we have two kayaks available for your use at no charge.

Interaction with guests

We are right down the road if you need anything. A phone call can bring us to the homestead in minutes.

Since we are running a small homestead, please be advised that we do come by twice a day to tend to the animals and gardens. Usually we will arrive around 7:30 AM and again around 4 or 5 PM, depending on daylight hours. Your privacy is of utmost concern to us and we will do our best to not disturb you. You are always welcome to come help with the feeding or to just say hello to the goats, chickens or rabbits! Please do not handle the animals without our supervision, but feel free to visit the goats anytime.

Other things to note

Smoking has never been allowed in our house, and we ask our guests to honor this request. Pets may be allowed, please ask. We do have a cat who stays outside when we rent. He does come in the house on occasion when we are not renting. If you are highly allergic this may be a problem for you.

Lovely, comfortable house that was great for a weekend getaway. We loved being able to use the pool and check out the goats and chickens in the morning. The kitchen was fully stocked and we loved being able to try her farm fresh eggs - straight from her chickens!

Marianne was such a lovely host. She took the time to meet with us when we arrived and we took a tour of her little farm (there were baby goats we got to play with while we there!). And since her family needs to tend to the farm during your stay, they are always available close by. Her house was clean, well organized, and beautifully decorated. This is definitely a foodies' house if you're looking to go to local farmer's markets and cook at home. Great for families and groups of old friends. Highly recommended.

When we first arrived Marianne's house, we were so impressed how clean and spotless the house is. It was decorated with Christmas theme, very festive, just put us in the mood ready for our Christmas vacation. The communication was very easy with Marianne. She answered any of our questions via text immediately. The house stocked up with everything, very cozy, just like home. Definitely recommended for everyone!

Marianne's homestead was more than we could have asked for. We went up to spend a fall weekend in the Catskills and our time at the "Farmhouse" was the perfect fit for it. The house was impeccably clean, and completely stocked with all the essentials for cooking and relaxing. Marianne communicated with me thru text every time I had a question. She was wonderful. I can't give this place enough stars. We had a great time and are already talking about booking a summer stay here! Thanks Marianne!!

Absolutely lovely isolated little farm spot. Marianne gave us fresh goat cheese from her goats, tomatoes from her garden and eggs from her chickens! The house was very comfortable and clean. We would definitely stay here again.

Marianne was wonderful. She was very welcoming and easy to communicate with. She went above and beyond to answer my questions and provide us with a great stay. Her home was comfortable, clean, and had all the amenities we were expecting from the listing. We can't wait to come back to stay with the adorable goats, rabbits and chickens again.

My husband and I built our home over 30 years ago. We.raised 5 children here. We have been enjoying sharing our home with guest on airbnb and making new friends. I love to cook, garden, and my newest adventure is raising chickens, goats, rabbits and bees. We also make goats milk soap and cheese!

Thank you for your interest in our home. I would love to hear something about you and what brings you to the beautiful Catskills!
