Private, Secluded, Peaceful! If you’re looking for a rare experience, a week, month or weekend respite —The Woods House is for you! Enjoy the peace! Conveniently located outside the historic village of Stone Ridge, NY, in the Lyonsville, Accord area—close to High Falls, Rosendale, Woodstock, Kingston and New Paltz — yet set in 40 acres of forest, our House in the Woods is blissfully quiet and secluded.

The space
A unique, handcrafted house on 40 secluded acres in New York's scenic Hudson Valley.

The Woods House is located in the heart of Ulster County, and the foothills of the Catskill mountains in the Accord/High Falls/Stone Ridge/Rosendale area. Close to New Paltz, Kingston, Woodstock and the Ashokan reservoir, the Woods Retreat is right across the river from Rhinebeck, Hyde Park and Poughkeepsie.

This unique house was built and designed as a peaceful get-away with modern comforts, using local wood & stone and an open floor plan. We have a fully stocked kitchen with new stainless steel appliances. We make sure there are spices, an assortment of teas plus either house roasted or locally roasted, organic, free trade coffee beans for grinding. Our digitally controlled kettle will heat your coffee or tea water to the precise temperature to ensure your morning coffee/tea is perfect and you will always find fresh light cream in the refrigerator.

We have all the accoutrements you need to prepare an outstanding meal, or to simply heat something up in the microwave. There is a brand new front loading, HE washer, dryer set in the utility room.

The upstairs open loft has a queen size bed and huge south facing windows. The sleeper sofa downstairs opens to a queen size bed and we have two single fold up futons, (they are the perfect size for a young child) we can bring out of storage if needed. The upstairs bathroom has a whirlpool tub and we make sure there are bath salts available for a leisurely relaxing spa bath.

We have a woodstove/fireplace and in the colder months we make sure wood and kindling are always available. The stone patio outside has a gas grill and al fresco dining is an option on the patio in good weather or in the screened, shaded gazebo.

We provide clean linens and the beds will be made upon your arrival. We have Apple TV, a DVD player with a huge collection of DVDs and hi-speed internet/wi-fi service available.

It's quiet and secluded while being a short distance [5 miles] from a major road. There are views of the Catskills and seasonal views of Mohonk Mountain. The area is known for its abundance of great restaurants, art galleries, antiquing, and hiking as well as rock climbing in the Shawangunks and many historic sites. The Belleayre and Hunter Mountain ski region is within an hour's drive.

Whether you're looking for a quiet, secluded weekend away, or a private & special base from which to venture forth, the Woods House is an experience not to be missed!

Guest access
Our guests have full use of the house and surrounding woods. The barn and woodshed are off limits.

We welcome well behaved pets for an additional $25 fee that can be paid upon your arrival. However, if your dog has behavior issues and/or can't be trusted, please leave them at home.

Other things to note
We have a strict no-smoking policy in the house, however you may smoke outside on the patio or in the gazebo. Please be considerate and use an ash tray —Do not toss or put out cigarettes on the ground.

The house is located on a private road, off a country lane, off a country road. While there are several other houses on the road, none are close—you can't see them and they can't see you. The nearest village of Stone Ridge has a well-equipped, lovely country market with a large organic section. There is a great wine and liquor store, a terrific library housed in a beautiful stone house and several farmers markets with locally grown fruits and vegetables. We also have a local, well-equipped gym, Ridgewell Fitness who offer a reasonably priced day pass if you want to keep up with your workouts! The valley, located between the Shawangunks and the foothills of the Catskills is one of exceptional beauty that attracts both visual and performing artists.

I am an Art Director/Graphic Designer. I work on both print and web projects and also publish Roll Magazine, an online magazine highlighting art, music and theatre in New York's Hudson Valley. I am also a passionate botanical artist and avid gardener. My brother Dan [who lives in Brooklyn and works as a set designer and artist's assistant] and I inherited The Woods House from our father, who designed and built the house as a private retreat. We love our house and the blissfully quiet surroundings and are always happy to meet new people and welcome guests who are visiting the area.

During your stay
I will greet you upon arrival, hand over the keys and answer any questions you have about the house or area. I keep a low profile [I live 15 minutes away], but am available should you need anything. The house is a quarter of a mile off the road so you can be assured of complete privacy. There is plenty of wildlife, but no people to intrude on your peace & quiet!
