This place is a freaking sanctuary! Me and my girlfriend had an amazing time here. Such a chill and spacious home. The kitchen is open and so comfortable. Cooking was the best part of my trip thanks to the setup. Comfy rooms, comfy beds, and a freaking awesome projector set up in the living room really makes this place a must stay. I shall be back!

La Finca is a perfect and BEAUTIFUL getaway from the city! The house is a gorgeous mix of modern while keeping the cabin feel of the house. The scenery is beautiful around the house. It is very close to town and to many hikes and other things Woodstock has to offer. Very convenient. Maria and Felix provide very detailed information on the house and things to do around the area. They are so accommodating - we couldn't have asked for a better or more comfortable stay!

This house was modern, clean and very well equipped (clean sheets and towels). Very cosy, huge movie screen projector (although cannot be connected to your Netflix/Hulu accounts). Also, very close to Woodstock and other cute towns, 2h from city. We're definitely going back.

Response from Maria:
Benjamin, sorry you couldn't connect to Netflix/Hulu. Other people have had no trouble with this from their laptops. Was the hdmi cable missing or something?

I had a wonderful stay at the Modern Cottage. It was well equipped with all comforts needed to feel at home. It has a great kitchen with tools to make a great meal or a quick snack. The house was warm and cozy while it was a bitter 15 degrees outside and a short drive to town. The king size bed was very comfortable with cushy pillows. The decor reminded me of a high end boutique hotel but with the size and privacy of your own home and the pull down movie screen was a treat. I would highly recommend staying here and look forward to returning.

Perfect for four. We were 2 couples who spent 3 nights there. It was the ideal space for us - we cooked, played games and watched movies. We brought our own groceries, but the house had everything we needed - a full kitchen, grill, great av system, projector/screen, dvds, books and games. Just note that none of the bathrooms are en suite, which wasn't a problem at all in our case. But if you're someone who needs your own bathroom, then keep this tip in mind. Host was super communicative and flexible. Location is excellent. Secluded and picturesque, but only 5 mins away from the town. Would definitely return to this lovely place!

Maria's place was just perfect. We woke up to the beautiful scenic views out of the gorgeous large windows throughout their home. I couldn't fault a single thing. It was a perfect home away from home and escape from NYC.

What a great place! Between the huge projection screen, well equipped kitchen, ample parking space, and picturesque scenery of the Catskills, Maria and Felix's cabin (or I should say home as it is quite large) is the perfect place for a getaway, whether romantic or with family and/or friends. Local Woodstock restaurants and shops are only a few minutes drive away with nature all around. Highly recommend Maria and Felix's modern cabin!
