About This Listing
We are located on a quiet rural/suburban street 2 1/2 miles from the center of Woodstock. Easy acces to local sights, activities, entertainment and neighboring towns. Ample parking. Aprox. a 15 min. bike ride or 40 min. walk (mostly quiet) to town!
The room is equipped with a full sized comfy bed, desk etc. sharing the bathroom with a woman/friend who is in the third bedroom for an extended stay - just to let you know, in case a shared bath is an issue. I have lowered the price to reflect it. The three bedrooms are located at one end of the house. Common areas are located at the other end.
The house is light and roomy and filled with comfortable and tasteful furnishings. Have organic coffee and a light breakfast on the back deck overlooking the large yard (weather permitting)! Please no smoking in or around the house.
I prefer guests to arrive before 8 pm. and tend not to take last minute guests, though I can be flexible.
I am an activities/expressive arts therapist and have raised 2 grown children in the 20 years+ that I've been a resident of Woodstock. I love to share my knowledge of this unique area and its inhabitants!
Woodstock and environ is truly special and beautiful with unusual attractions (like Zen and Tibetan monasteries), local streams for swimming, mountains for hiking and skiing, a golf course, great restaurants, a variety of musical venues, theatre, art, yoga and dance. Our little town plays host to world class festivals as well - The Woodstock Writers Festival in the spring and the Woodstock Film Festival in the fall, for example.
Also, I discourage guests to come without their own car. Even though we are within a few miles of town (a nice walk or bike ride if you bring your bike), areas of interest are spread out, and public transportation is extremely limited.
Guests are welcome to use the fridge or freezer for a few items. I don't permit actual cooking.
Interaction with Guests
I try to be sensitive to the needs of the guest. We have busy schedules so the amount of interaction depends on a booking's particulars however I do try my best to be present for arrival and departure.
Because all the bedrooms are close to each other, if guests wish a lot of privacy, it's best to book elsewhere.
I like to say that the neighborhood is rural suburbia. It's quiet and pleasant for a walk or run. It is well situated for getting to town center and to the thruway.
Best to have your own vehicle.
Check-in and check-out times can have some flexibility - let's discuss. No smoking in or around house.
Adah has a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood, a six minute drive from the heart of Woodstock. Nature abounds! We were lulled by bird song and the tall, old trees. Exactly the respite we needed. She was able to accommodate us for a single night stay on Memorial Day Weekend. The room is on the small side, but has all the basics you need, with bathroom right across the hall. We slept like babies! Overall, a peaceful and restorative retreat from the buzz of Woodstock. Make your rounds on Tinker, then escape to the woods! Thank you, Adah!
Firstly, Woodstock is absolutely beautiful. The people are warm and the countryside is idyllic.
Adah's place is situated amongst tall trees in a quiet location which is a ten minute drive from town. It was easy to find with GPS and there is parking. The exterior of the house is much nicer than the photos suggest whilst the interior space is warm and homely with a lovely unpretentious feel about it. My bed was really comfortable and I slept better there than I have anywhere in a long while! The room was pleasant.
Every morning there was coffee and on my first morning Adah made her fabled muffins (which were yum!), and on the final morning, pancakes (also yum!). I was there for the Woodstock Film Festival and was out with my colleagues for most of the day and coming back late at night, all of which was fine. Adah was happy for me to come and go as I pleased. She is a lovely person with an enlightend view on life and the world. We had some great chats.
Honestly, it was like staying with a relative. A very pleasant, easy experience that was perfect for the four nights I stayed there.
Adah made my boyfriend and I feel incredibly welcome at her home! The name: "Woodstock Ease" is a great title for the weekend get-away we experienced. The listing is extremely accurate-as are the wonderful reviews. Her home is located in a charming, safe neighborhood minutes from the town square of Woodstock and surrounded by boundless winding roads. We had a perfect fall weekend upstate and Adah and her roommate gave us boundless suggestions-making it all the more special!
Adah was great and super nice. It was just a one night stay, so it was perfect. She even made up delicious muffins for breakfast. :) If I ever need to stay in Woodstock again, I would stay at Adah's.
Adah's house was just as described and viewed in the photos...no surprises. We were only in Woodstock a short while and had a great stay. Her house was minutes from the town of Woodstock -- close to great bars, restaurants and shopping. Adah was a great host, very accommodating and worked easily with us on check in times. She also makes great muffins : )
About the Host, Adah
I lead arts based and therapeutic groups for a living. I love culture, community, friends and family. I love being physically active, and involved in local events and activities. Politically, I am very liberal and am pretty opinionated. I have two grown sons in their mid 20's, one living in NYC and the other in LA. I have lived through difficult circumstances and believe each of us works at the attitudes and grace we bring into our lives. I am interested in people and their unique stories. I value a sense of humor. I love movies (most often independently made ones), art, dance, yoga, literature, a range of music (opinionated about this as well), interesting food, and....
As a host, I like to provide a comfortable, home like atmosphere while allowing people their space. I know the Woodstock area and what it offers very well.
I enjoy the opportunities of being an Airbnb host - direct, positive interaction with people I would not otherwise meet.
