  • Such a peaceful cottage amongst a gorgeous wooded landscape. The pictures don't do this place justice. It was really wonderful! Easy and scenic drives to Woodstock, Phoenicia and other cute nearby towns. Would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a peaceful secluded getaway. And the hot tub is a wonderful bonus!

  • This was a great getaway house! Tip: bring your own knives for cooking.

  • Ford's cottage is nestled against a private, tree-covered hill and is beautifully decorated, comfortable, cozy, has an amazing stove oven/fire place, lots of candles and, best of all, a hot tub to bask in while stargazing. It gets beautifully filtered sunlight during the day and you can hear the nearby brook babbling at night. A perfect getaway.

  • We arrived late to the cabin and cracked open a bottle of wine and headed out to the hottub. Being in the hot tub under a clear night full of stars, surrounded by snow, was an amazing experience and really made this place special for us.
    The living/kitchen space is very open yet warm and inviting. We spent most of our time in the house cooking, drinking wine, and playing games and the space was perfect for all the above activities. Beds were comfy enough and we slept quite well. The area is pretty remote and feels like your own little piece of wooded bliss at times.
    Great sunlight, great views, and an overall great stay.
    I would Definitely bring your own knife for (website hidden) utensils were a bit sparse.
    We would stay here again:)

  • What a wonderful place! We had a great time enjoying the cottage's hot tub, secluded setting, and proximity to Woodstock and other Catskill villages. The cottage was charming, clean, and had everything we needed. We would definitely return to this spot.

  • Nice place. Nothing fancy, but all the basics of a cozy four-season cabin.

    The location was easy to find with (website hidden) Maps on our phones. Definitely need a car to get here from NYC. The setting was beautiful--great mountain view, hidden from neighbors, nice landscaping, and babbling from a nearby brook.

    Inside is a little shabby, but in a comfortable lived-in way. The gas stove kept the place warm. Kitchen had the basics, nothing fancy. If you're a cook, BYO knife. There were plenty of good wine glasses though. The cable TV was nice to have. The hot tub was a treat, although we couldn't get it quite as hot as we would have liked in December. Towels for shower and hot tub were provided.

    We had dinner at The Bear Cafe about 8 minutes from the house. Great, unique setting right on a stream. Menu was sort of generic, but okay. Good service.

    Woodstock is maybe 10-15 minutes away. Fun town to explore. Bread Alone and the tea shop were highlights. Oriole9 was a cute hippy cafe that was obviously popular with the locals and the food was pretty good. The Woodstock Artists Association runs a little museum/gallery that was worth while and gave us a nice history of artists in the region.

    One last thing--watch out for TICKS! We did some light hiking nearby, and although it was December and had my whole body covered, I managed to get a tick bite on my shin. Not Reginald's fault at all, but just be careful and do a good tick-check every day. Little buggers are tough up there.

  • Lovely, cozy hideaway. The hot tub was the icing on the cake.

  • We had a beautiful stay at this elegant cottage. The place sits nicely on a hill surrounded by trees. The large patio, deck and hot tub area were awesome for relaxing. One thing you don't get in the pics is the really nice skylights – even in the shower – so the light inside is great. Everything was clean and tidy. Ford was an excellent communicator and a very accommodating host. Would highly recommend and definitely stay here again. Thanks so much!

  • We had an absolutely fabulous time at Reginald's house. It was in a stunning, serene setting where we felt totally private. The decor was wonderful - looked like beautiful Thai imports, gorgeous teak furniture on the deck, and a hot tub! It was just the two of us and our small dog, Maya who had an absolute blast running around and looking at the coy pond. Reginald was super accommodating (like REALLY accommodating) - we made the reservation at about noon on Saturday, and arrived at 7 PM that night. When we got there, we called him, and he gave us instructions on how to use the hot tub, and two great spots for dinner, The Bear Cafe (which my husband described as a restaurant set in a hobbit community - a shire) and Cucina. Both restaurants were excellent, and had really romantic and lovely atmospheres. The photos on the site don't even do the house ultimate justice. There's an adorable kitchen area and really comfy cozy couches. The house was full of light, and the property went on for quite awhile.

    We did have some encounters with nature. We saw a family of four bears just beyond the property, strolling down the road! I guess in all fairness we were right outside of Bearsville! I stepped on a harmless garter snake my first morning in the yard. That was a bit surprising, but as I said, totally harmless. We asked some locals about the bears (we also saw one standing in the middle of the road when we were driving into town the first night), and they said they're not really interested in us humans. They seemed to be looking for food, and we just watched them from a comfortable distance. I have spent a lot of time in the woods, backpacked the entire Long Trail (the length of Vermont from the Massachusetts to the Canadian border), and I NEVER saw a bear. Then we see five bears 2.5 hours from our Long Island home! It was actually quite thrilling.

    As I said, we couldn't have been happier with Reginald's hospitality, or his absolutely perfect cottage. Would highly recommend. It's about seven miles outside of Woodstock, and we didn't see a soul the entire time we were at his house. It was just the kind of serene, rejuvenating weekend we needed. Thanks for everything!!
